My wife and I dined on a Friday night and the restaurant was humming. The welcome was friendly and we were quickly shown to a nice table. The waiting staff (and Marcus the boss man) are really efficient and super friendly, without being intrusive.....a good balance. Despite how busy the restaurant was the food arrived at exactly the right intervals... More

We decided to try this restaurant out due to the good reviews and so glad we did! Had lunch with the children and as it was quiet the waiter allowed them to watch the pizzas being made and my daughter even made her own! Off the beaten track but worth finding! Thanks for a lovely lunch!

I have not been to this restaurant for many years and I was presently surprised when I went on Saturday evening. It is a great restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. The restaurant has home made pasta and pizzas and uses local island produce. The starter platters looked amazing, I wish I ordered one but we did not have starters. We... More

We had a very nice 2 course meal here together with a bottle of wine. The staff were very pleasant and the food (I had pork belly and my husband had the seabass) was delicious. We dined here on the tennerfest menu and the wine shiould have had 20% reduction. However when we got the bill this was not deducted... More

A last minute booking turned into a very enjoyable meal. Very tasty food. We had pizza, which we both agreed was one of the nicest we've had. The food being served at tables around us looked delicious. Great friendly service. Only down side was that it was a little bit noisy, but that's all.

Having visited many many restaurants over the years in many different places, this is at the top of my list. If fact we ate there twice during the week. Waiter was attentive and efficient. Taking orders without writing any notes. Everything that arrived was exactly as ordered. Starters were exquisite. I had the calamari served on a fresh orange/salad bed.... More

Without doubt the best gluten free meal I have ever had. Pizza, garlic bread and pasta were all delicious. Normally gluten free options are never as good as there counter parts but my partner tried my pasta and thought it was even better than the best normal pasta she had eaten in Italy.

This was my favourite restaurant for my boyfriend and I to go for special occasions. The food was always lovely even if it was more expensive than most places, I'd say it was worth it. As a young couple we frequently find ourselves being ignored in restaurants as it's assumed we won't leave a tip. My boyfriend nearly always overpays... More

it is THE Italian restaurant to visit on the island!! They were the words of my hubby, who is very particular about food and drink.

Description
The Island's ONLY Genuine Jersey restaurant member, for our fresh homemade specialities that use local ingredients. La Cantina have taken their family’s traditional Italian recipes, culinary ethos, and cooking techniques, and then added the finest local ingredients to recreate an authentic Italian experience. It’s food "just like Mamma used to make", with a fresh, modern twist, served without any fuss in a relaxed, vibrant environment.Everything is prepared from scratch, using top quality imported produce and local seasonal produce. The homemade pasta is fresh every day, and their pizza dough is made the traditional way, to a centuries-old Italian recipe using a ‘lievito madre’ natural yeast culture and fired in a stone oven for pizzas that taste as authentically Neapolitan as they come. Using the best of what Jersey has to offer they also make a range of delicacies including, homemade Italian style sausages using locally grown pork and seasonal foraged offerings, such as ‘gnocchi all'ortica’ stinging nettle gnocchi and local scallops with wild garlic.Along with the restaurant’s extensive menu, the blackboard specials feature whatever’s in season, from locally caught seafood to Jersey raised meats, foraged herbs and exclusive Italian finds that they import weekly into the Island. It’s real rustic Italian cooking using the best local ingredients. And while La Cantina keeps things ‘old school’ in the kitchen, the restaurant is bringing Italian food right up to date with a fresh whole-wheat version of their pastas and pizzas, and a menu that allows the guest to customize their meal. There’s a 100% Italian, price-banded, wine list that features exclusive wines that they import directly from the vineyard, and a large selection of wines by the glass.It’s a real taste of Italy, right here in Jersey with a bustling, Italian atmosphere where everyone instantly feels at home. You can also enjoy the La Cantina experience at home as you can take-away their entire menu.
