We went to Il Cantuccio on a Sunday evening. The food was very good - we had chicken and lamb and both were very tasty and the service was excellent. The waiter spoke very good English, having worked for a year in New South Wales and Victoria. We had a nice Matera wine which was quite light but very nice. Overall, a good experience and we expect to return in the next couple of days.

Thank Robert S

Food was pretty good, the customer service was outstanding! Hosts spoke some English and was very patience as we choose what to eat. Nice and relaxing setting, would love to come back when we come back.

Competent but not outstanding. Good wine list. We had several antipasti so a good selection of local cuisine.

Small restaurant with only 10 tables. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Great waiter that was very engaging and helpful. Handmade pasta and fresh local produce. Good local wine. Our waiter shared a great recommendation on a local wine shop for good local wines. Well worth a visit.

Nice setting, cozy and sort of romantic. We've been there for lunch and tried different dishes, we wanted to "adapt" 2 of the dishes but the waiter told us that we can't, we have to eat the food like in the menu. The pork with carrot sauce (more like a carrot soup) is interesting and nice, fior di zucca was so and so and the pasta also, nothing impressive. The pistachio ice cream was very good.
