We went with the family and it was amazing. There was a local Bolivian celebrity singer and it was a respectful place to come as you are - no drama. The food was delicious and the service was amazing. There is authentic Bolivian options and you can also choose from international favorites.

Nice environment, excellent service. They served a good lasagna, quite OK Milanesa de pollo and a not so good tiramisu (half-frosen, not creamy).

We wen't to La Cantonata following the high classification here in Tripadvisor, but our experience didn't match it, the service was delayed, even though it was far from full house, the food was ok, nothing spectacular...

We love eating at this delicious Italian restaurant. The menu is very extensive and we have found that the Italian dishes are what shine at this restaurant. The ambiance is lovely with classical music and candle light. Just make sure you don't eat in the smoking section.

If Italian is what you want in Cochabamba, La Cantonata is the place to go. They have all the expected dishes, well prepared and reasonably priced - unless sea food is what you crave, a thousand kilometres from the sea... However, many of the dishes are correctly labeled "Not so Italian", and are also very tasty, such as the French... More

Love this restaurant! The lasagna, among other dishes, comes out in a mini-casserole plate, and is steaming hot, fresh out of the oven! The service is excellent and the atmosphere is pleasant. The pricing is what can be expected at a nice restaurant in Cochabamba. Give it a try, and you won't regret it!

Depending of what you take you pay a little more than elsewhere but the service as well as the quality of the food reflect the price. I wish i could go a second time for a pizza !

Just went to celebrate a birthday there this week. Out of 7 different orders, 3 were just not good. One pasta had whole cloves in it and was just too oily. Another one was just off, seemed like the cream used in the Alfredo sauce was not properly stored or cooked. The gnocchi were very doughy, could barely taste the... More

We were invited for a nice lunch. The pasta is excellent. The staff is helpful and the interior was in excellent condition. The tiramisu and the cake from the house are recommended.
