We got a table for 6 tucked away in a corner so there was a little privacy. Server was kind and knowledgeable. The guys all got the prime rib special, which was prepared a little differently than what you usually get... and with prime rib, that is not a good thing. HOWEVER, it was delicious an cooked perfectly to taste.... More

Arrived at La Cantina just before 5pm. Restaurant was basically empty at this time. We were seated and then we waited..and waited...and waited. More customers came in and sat beside us(family of 4). Waitress went to their table to take their drink order and still no one came to our table. I had to talk to the bar tender to... More

Returned to La Cantina last Friday for dinner. First: Wasn't impressed with our server, she gave us all the impression we were inconveniencing her. We felt rushed. Perhaps, she was having a bad night, she may have not realized her mood was obvious to clients. We still tipped her well. Secondly: Pizza just wasn't the same as it use to... More

Amazing meal with huge portions, a great atmosphere and a wonderful server. The pescatore pasta was lovely, lots of seafood in a homemade rose sauce. My mother had the in house made gnocci and she enjoyed it very much. Our server was polite and attentive and made sure we had a wonderful time. Overall a great experience, we will be... More

Large, traditional Italian menu. Good food,large portions. I liked the wine selection. Would definitely go again. Large restaurant with a good size Christmas crowd when we were there. A little noisy.

Went here with a large group of people for dinner. Menu openly advertises that there are vegan/vegetarian options which is appreciated. I ordered the spaghetti ortolano sans goat cheese. I had had a similar dish at another fine dining Italian restaurant in Niagara on the Lake last year and was really underwhelmed so I didn't have high expectations for this... More

Had an early reservation so we could catch a show at the Aquarius theatre but had a great dinner. We started with shrimp and bruschetta which was great and tasty. Then on to veal piccata and veal chop both very good and tasty along with more than enough to eat. Finished with tiramisu and double espresso. Very enjoyable and will... More

Nice ambience is what we were looking for when we planned our Christmas lunch. We also wanted somewhere with good reviews for good food and service. We were not disappointed. But for a lunch the prices were exorbitant. I paid $50 for a salad and pasta. No alcohol or any drink for that matter becuse all I had was water.... More

We were there for an early dinner with a group of 10 and sat in a private room (great for business or family). We enjoyed wine and appetizers (we all shared a few platters of the bruschetta mista - a selection of all their bruschettas). Since my favourite is seafood, I tried the linguine pescatore. It was a huge portion... More
