Just had a creamy chicken scallop dinner with a friend and to say the least we were very impressed. Yes the restaurant doesn't look grand but the service and food is fantastic. Really pleased we gave it a try. Large meals too.

While on holiday in Tassie came across this restaurant on a Sunday evening. With the $2.50 pp surcharge I was concerned about value for money. We ordered two pasta dishes and veal fungi with vegetables. As you can see from the pics they were all stunning. Yes it was expensive but the service was exceptional the food to die for.... More

The service was fantastic. The wait staff were super friendly. Most importantly it was the best pizza i have ever had.

Ordered pizza, one beer and one coke. Coke was flat. Asked waitress to take it away and please bring a bubbley fresh coke. Waitress NOT impressed and only topped up flat coke with a fresh bottle, and returned semi flat glass. Pizza smothered in layers of greasy, salty toppings that we couldnt eat. Only good thing was the air conditioning.

La Cantina was a nice experience after several disappointments in Launceston. Great food and service. The garlic pizza as an entree was amazing and all the dishes ordered were well prepared. The wine list could be improved, specially because there are so many good wineries in the region.

The premises are un-pretentious but the meal was great! We dined here as a family group for an evening meal. The service was good with staff attentive & functional. Meals were fresh & tasty, our group ordered everything from seafood, pasta & pizza. Portion sizes were big enough to satisfy without being wasteful, salads were crisp & fresh. Value for... More

We chanced upon La Cantina on a Saturday night in Launceston. Pasta dishes were hot and delicious. The menu was well priced and we were able to walk from our hotel. Service was fine. Highly recommend.

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.
