A little bit of something for everyone! The food is great... pasta is home made, sea food is fresh! The meat is good quality! My favorite is the dessert part... the BEST is the chocolate cake... it just melts before you can chew it! :) Would also recommend the escalope( veal).

I was hesitant to go at first because I am tired of Italian food having eaten it so much, but now it is one of the places we go to in Marseille regularly. I don't know their whole menu because we usually share Burrata as an appetizer and then get the slow cooked meat for the main meal (carne del... More

I have been to this restaurant with a large group of friends. We all like the food, ordered a variety of dishes. Regualar portions, a bit pricey. Good options if you are vegetarian as they make risotto with vegetable stock and their panna cotta doe not contain gelatine but agar agar. They serve a nice burrata and, if you ask,... More

I ate here when I visited Marseille a few weeks ago. The food is delicious, well prepared and plentiful. My French is a little bit rusty (!) but one of the waitresses happily explained the menu to me in English. There's a lovely garden where you can eat, relax and enjoy the weather. Unpretentious and friendly with an emphasis on... More

A fantastic choice for Italian fare in Marseille - delicious pastas, amazing salumi, beautiful local seafood and they make a mean spritz! Dine solo at the bar, in the cozy dining room or in the lovely outdoor garden.

Great home-made pasta, lovely bresaola with parmigiano, daily selection of fish and meats. Tiramisu, limoncello sorbet and cafe noisette were also nice. The place is slightly off of Cours Julien on a street sloping downwards, so has a more relaxed, chilled and homey feel. Waiter was extremely nice and took time to personally present the entire (!) menu and daily... More

This restaurant was recommended by a couple of blogs we read prior to the trip and by a women at our hotel. It did not disappoint. We got the last table, so if you want to go and have only one night, make sure you get a reservation.

Great italian restaurant with good food, fun crowd and fair service. Very popular cosy patio. Good food especially the home made pasta. I will return to La Cantinetta next time I go to Marseille. The restaurant is located in a bohemian part of the City. If you're waiting for a table have a glass of wine at the cool Wine... More

We enjoyed our lunch at La Cantinetta. Great ambiance, very friendly staff, and the food was better than average, although not excellent. We sat inside, which was nice, but for summer evenings it is probably even better to sit outside on their lovely backyard where they also have a bar.

We were seated in the garden as we hadn't made a reservation. it was a chilly night but it was lovely to sit outside. our waitress was a delight, she talked us through all the options and explained some of the french/ Italian words we weren't familiar with. our entree, main and dessert was beautiful. highly recommend this place for...
