A return visit to this restaurant and it was so disappointing. We dined with friends and decided to sit at one of the high top tables in the bar area. The waitress said she would clear off a table for us and to wait just a minute ((this turned into a several minute wait). After being seated she took our... More

Had forgotten how good the food is there. Stopped on the way to another restaurant as we were driving by and decided to go there instead. Glad we did. Veal parm was very good and enough for lunch the next day. Seafood risotto was very good also - did not smell or taste fishy at all. Salad dressing is always... More

La Cantina is our new Italian favorite restauarant. Elaine C. was our waitress and was so informative with her favorite selections. We were a party of 4. We got Chix Parm, Pollo Limone ovr Pasta, Pasta Deyve w/linguine, Pasta Limone & side of Gnocchi, and coffee. Everything was superbly prepared and portions were great. Even the coffee tasted great. We... More

We were here for a group of 14 people for dinner. Service was quite good, the value is outstanding, and the food was old fashioned Italian American. It was very good -- especially the cheese ravioli parmagiana with bolognese sauce. Portions are huge, so the value is great. The salad was not so hot -- just cold iceberg lettuce, not... More

La Cantina has been a old favorite for years! We are Italian so prefer to cook our own, but la cantina is like going to an Aunts house for Sunday dinner. The pizza is amazing!

My husband and I frequent this restaurant. The food is consistant and the portions are large enough for us to share. La Cantina has been around forever and they are known for Fannie's salad dressing. Of course, their salads are terrific. I haven't gotten fish there, however, once Spring has sprung, they have a lobster special on Thursday nights that... More

Food is above average, casual atmosphere, great for families with young kids. Excellent selection at reasonable prices. The home made salad dressings are delicious.

This Italian restaurant has been serving good Italian food for many, many years - close to 50 years I think. It is a moderately priced restaurant that has early bird specials several nights a week for about $10.00 which includes a salad and an entree. The food is reliably good and the menu has many choices to choose from. The... More

When a small family run restaurant passes to the next generation it hardly ever stays the same. The recipes just aren't the same. There may be pictures of the founders and other Italian scenes on the walls...but playing 'pop music' that appeals to the millennials certainly takes some of the authenticity out of the whole experience. From the beginning they... More
