Went for a quick lunch with a friend and what a great find la Cantina is. The food was super delicious and the service was the best I've encountered in quite a while. I'll definitely be back soon

We booked for a Saturday night before our truffle hunt. We were all pleased with our meals. Some had the pasta others ordered from the secondi piati. The desserts were fantastic, especially the Orange Chocolate creation. Good for those staying at the Ibis Styles nearby.
