The smell of the pasta when it was placed in front of us, was just to warm you up for how good it tasted! Even the left overs the next day was great! Nice atmosphere. Will go back again!

I visit LaCantina often and the food is consistently delicious, especially given the competitive prices. Their pizzas are certainly their speciality, and the gorgonzola pizza in particular is to die for. If you are eating on the "fancy" side of the restaurant, (I believe it's called Viccolo), you must get the mushroom risotto. However, I think that the best option is to share a pizza and a salad with someone. Great food and value. Also, ask for some spicy oil with your delicious complimentary bread! Ordering dessert will really jack up your bill, although the tiramisu is regularly make in-house by an old Italian lady.

Veronica was an attentive, efficient, knowledgeable server. Grilled vegetables with goats cheese was a light appetizer. Had two different kinds of pizza. Both were very, very salty, which detracted from the meal. Il Fornello in Oakville and of course Libretto in Toronto are far superior for wood oven pizza.

Restaurant is quiet, so nice for a romantic meal.

Every time my husband and I want to celebrate an occasion or take guests to an authentic Italian restaurant- this is it!!. We have travelled many times to Italy, and the meals cannot compare.
La Cantina is as close to an authentic pizza, pasta and atmosphere as you can get here in Canada. Enjoy chin chin!!

My wife and I had an anniversary dinner here recently, on the advice of some friends who live in the area. Have to say, the place did not disappoint. The food's simply delicious, the service impeccable, and the decor tasteful. My wife had the farfalle primavera and I had the gnocchi alla gorgonzola. Both outstanding and the portions were generous to say the least, yielding lunch for both of us the next day. We were too full to try desseert, unfortunately.
Highly recommend this place if you're in the area.
