Rather than take a chance on finding another good restaurant in Launceston, we went to La Cantina both nights we were in Launceston and really enjoyed the food. Their pasta is exceptional, generous helpings and full of flavour. The average price for a main course is $30 and deserts around $10. Drinks are very reasonable and on Sundays there is... More

Walked in off the street and were given a table straight away. Service was friendly , meals were adequate in size , and flavour was very good. Pasta cooked well, and pizza was impressive. Would call here again for a feed.

We had been travelling all day and were staying close by. We had a marinara pizza and a calzone. The calzone was OK and the pizza was above average but not great. While the decor was ok there was little or no atmosphere in the restaurant. The Service was adequate.

We were in Launceston for 1 night. Pizza was what we were craving. Randomly picked this place and boy were we glad we did!!! The 5 year old was very happy to be able to draw on the table (paper on the tables for quick turnover). The pizzas were amazing. Thankfully we over ordered and were able to have pizza... More

I first must say that the food was good. But they charged us €2.50 per person for being served ON A SUNDAY, €2 for parmesan and just to top it off 50c for using a credit card for a bill covering three meals. The service was not rude but it was rather unttentive and we were left waiting for things... More

Not living close to a city and limited access to restaurants I always manage to get into La Cantina for my favourite Veal Marsala on a bed of fettuccine laced with Parmesan cheese. Their pizzas are great too eat in or take away. Nice atmosphere and family run business. Friendly helpful staff. Just be patient as its a popular place.... More

I said to my husband this is a women in the kitchen not just some trained chef. And I was right, The owner (wife) does the cooking and you can taste it. Its what you would expect from an italian women who has had her cooking skills passed down to her from other women in her family. The food was... More
