Went there for lunch, had cesar salad with prawns and carbonara. Tasted good, but not as good as the price paid for them. Also couldn't pay with credit card, as the terminal wasn't working. And as I understood it wasn't working for a long time.

Suspicious... plenty of free tables on a Friday evening… However, La Cantina used to be a good place. Food is still ok, though the menu is not extra-large. Service is just ok. The prices average for the location. It is obvious that the dishes are...More

Gordon Ramsay would be let down. Soggy salad with old vegetables; mushy ravioli with very thin sauce. Very expensive, too. Could do better.

CONCLUSION: above average Italian restaurant, but could be way better Tasty but quite small dishes. The carbonara tastes like the real deal. Good home made tea. The prices are high related to the abundance/quality ratio: 35 euro for 4, with no alcoholic drinks

Not the most authentic (if you are N American) and no tacos to be seen, but decent Quesadillas and Burritos. Canned, oily guacamole (skip that) but a decent attempt in Eastern Europe. Slow service, good location, not bad prices.

Atmosphere and good waiters will make your evening. The food is fresh and home-made. It worth visiting second time. Good for romantic dates.

There seemed to be two La Cantina restaurants. This one, further up from the the Golden Gate seemed to be only Italian food, not the Mexican Italian quoted in the description. By UK standards the prices were excellent and the service and food were also...More

A small place but with own character, though-out ambience, and menu, although not big, still "for everyone to find something" Frequented by foreigners - and I am not sure whether only due to location. A calm place with nice food, and nonbothering service
