When we booked it looked really good. Very popular and really good food. Unfortunately our food was very poor. Our veal was cold and the carbonara came with no bread as advertised. Service was very poor and inattentive. We will not be back. Had to get fries on the way home!

We ate here on a Friday at about 7pm - it was fairly busy and a nice atmosphere! The food was great - we had bruschetta, lasagna and the spinach & ricotta cannelloni. Waitress was really friendly and it was good value for money too :)

We where here about a month ago ( the weekend of the 5yr festival) . We have eaten here previously and all has been good. This time not so good . :( The waitress , even though pleasant .. needed to smile a bit. She was obviously having a bad eve as most people were complaining about the food. ( too late at this stage for us to leave ). I asked for pasta with a rosemary oil or something BUT with NO CHEESES .. the order was taken and it was AGES before we got our food.. i dont mind this .. anyway it arrived covered in cheese. So i said that i had asked not to have cheese as i am allergic to it . She rolled her eyes ( not great !!) and took it away .. it came back without cheese .. I hope not just scraped off .!! anyway not a great experience . we won't return sadly .

Fitting in a large group to eat dinner is never easy in a popular resort, especially on European Cup Final night when every man ( and a good many women) want to eat early and see the match. We fell upon La Cantina by accident, looking for a hole in the wall cash point) and booked a huge portion of the place with a long table stretching from wall to wall. All the usual stuff, Minestrone, Pasta, pizzas for the kids ( and some adults). They were a touch short on staff and very short on some of the wines which appeared only on the wine list but this was overcome with the cry of : Better bring us what you have left." The problems were overcome because our large, extended family crowd were in good humour and good voice, sometimes loud but always jolly. A few potential diners looked and left, others were advised there was little room and . presumably by then, little food remaining in the kitchen. However, one middle aged couple insisted they were seated and served and then spent what was left of their evening complaining about the noise and the " big group". Perhaps they didn't spot the table of 15 right ion the middle of this small restaurant. Wouldn't return but thanks on the night for accommodating us.
