This canal side restaurant is definitely worth a visit. Be prepared for generous portions of well cooked food with fantastic ingredients. The staff are Italian and very friendly. There is a good wine list. The waterside location is lovely as is the interior.

Cantina di David is a traditional Italian restaurant since 1997, when we decided to bring authentic Italian food and culture to The Netherlands. The essence of our cuisine emanates from all 20 regions of Italy, from the high Alps to the arid land of Sardinia. We offer you many seasonal dishes, using regional products, carefully selected to bring you the flavours of Italy. We are located in the heart of Holland, nearby Utrecht central station. We are the ideal meeting point for all occasions. Our close interaction with our customers creates a cosy family environment.
