We stop in Orleans going from uk to south of France regularly. La Cantine is our favourite restaurant with friendly service and fantastic wood fired pizzas. Tonight was first visit with our dog and we were made to feel as welcome as usual. Best to book as it gets busy! We will be back!

I was advised by some good friends that live in Orleans of this pizza, thinking of french pizza just didn't come to my mind, the establishment in a very italian/spanish style with a modern touch as well was busting with clients, the variety of pizzas was quite delightful covering most of the preferences of any clients, the tables very simple...

Had dinner here with a group of 4 older friends. As we were one of the first to occupy a table we were a bit worried. Later though , the place was packed and our fears proved unfounded. On a classic Italian French menu our group had lasagna, Caesar salade, steak hache and pizza. All were quite satisfactory. With a... More

We are regular travellers to the South of France and so are very used to the late opening and eating times in the restaurants - we quickly learned this is not the case in Orleans! Having driven from Calais we went out in search of sustenance at 8.30pm on a Saturday and could not get a table at any of... More

We found this place through tripadvisor and booked it via there website. Just as well as there was a big queue of people but we got shown straight to our table. The food and the service were simply superb. We shared mozzarella sticks to start which were divine and the dips excellent. Pizzas were of the very highest standard and... More

This was the rudest staff in any restaurant I have ever been in. There were a number of tables vacant outside without reservations. I was told I would have to wait for 20 minutes. I said "That's fine, can I have the menu please?" and the waitress said "No, you will have to wait somewhere else." So I just left... More

Based in a very characterful building, very friendly helpful staff, the menu has a lot of choice, however for me, the Pizzas take a lot of beating, plenty of flavour and filling. Good value for money.

Thank Mark A
