Description: A new restaurant in this unspoiled mediaeval hill town. It is run by Deborah, the charming daughter of Daria, owner of Monticchiello's famed La Porta. I hosted a wedding eve dinner there on July 7th - the first big party Deborah had catered. The food, wine, service and ambience were ll outstanding. I can't praise the generosity of spirit which animated the whole event highly enough.

“Hidden Tuscan jewel”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

My wife and I have been visiting Monticchiello over the years and, on our most recent trip, were delighted to find that another wonderful restaurant has opened in this beautiful village. The food is exquisitely conceived and presented and the service is absolutely outstanding. Proprietor Deborah Senatori has much to be proud of here. We highly recommend La Cantina for anyone touring this area of Italy!

“Romantic and delicious!”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

My family had a very special wedding dinner at La Cantina. Thirty of us ate the most delicious and beautiful dinner matched perfectly with top local wines. We couldn't have been happier with the environment and the service. What a special event in a special place!!! I highly recommend it for groups or couples.

“Yum”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

The steak was Fred Flintstone sized and was seriously tasty! We also had delicious risotto and braised guinea fowl (tasted like what my grandmother made when she was alive!). The service was top notch and the owner was extremely nice and warm. The topper, the tiramisu was fantastic! This town is so cute, which added to the ambiance.
