I’m typically hesitant about the guy on the street telling me his mom is cooking in the kitchen and “it’s very good food”, but boy was I wrong. Fantastic from beginning to end and the friendliest service we’ve had since we began our trip in Italy. A memorable and decadent meal. Tiramisu is ridiculous. Thanks Alessandro and all the great staff here.

We spent a month in Greve and this was the favorite restaurant for all that came to visit. Alessandro who owns the place greets guests with a fist bump followed up by a welcome prosecco. We had most of what they had but our favorite was the Atomica pizza. Fair prices for good food. He also sells the bus tickets which we took when we visited Firenze. He may bring you a present at the end of the meal and a vin santo. Enjoy!

La Cantina is located among a group of restaurants in Greve and based on TA I knew it would be good but as we casually walked up to the door, seeing that it was busy I asked the the tall, hard working fellow with a scruffy beard (turns out he's the owner) if there was a table for 4 and before I could ask the question their were glasses of ice cold Prosecco in our hands and a hearty "No Problem" and we were off to a great start. We had pasta and pizza all done perfectly and the outdoor seating is lovely. A wonderful spot.

Here for a large group lunch the service was a bit lack lustre, maybe because of the table size ( 10 ) maybe just an off day but a few things got forgotten during the meal. That said every effort was made to keep the table happy and service was friendly and helpful.
Wine list was good and suited most budgets. Outside dining on a warm day was ideal too.
We ordered mixed platters of anti pasti which were great, and various salads, pastas and such for mains all of which were well prepared and presented.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening meal here. The mixed plate of various meats, cheese, pate and Chutney was excellent. Very large and tasty pizza. Excellent house wine and a complimentary dessert. Fantastic service. Amazingly good value too. Highly recommend.
