This is my second time at this restaurant and once again it didn't disappoint. Excellent service, outstanding food and reasonably priced. The ambiance is wonderful, right on the canal. Highly recommend!

We went there for Christmas dinner and expected something special. It was bad. The food was not good, the service ok. All in all way too expensive for the experience.

We had a lovely meal, but did feel that for what we had it was a little on the expensive side. Great for a special occasion. It was very busy all tables full as the weather was glorious.

If you're looking for a good, more up market, Italian restaurant in Utrecht then this is your place to go. Definitely not a tourist trap (as previous posts have referenced). Good wait staff and good Italian food.

Cantina di David is a traditional Italian restaurant since 1997, when we decided to bring authentic Italian food and culture to The Netherlands. The essence of our cuisine emanates from all 20 regions of Italy, from the high Alps to the arid land of Sardinia. We offer you many seasonal dishes, using regional products, carefully selected to bring you the flavours of Italy. We are located in the heart of Holland, nearby Utrecht central station. We are the ideal meeting point for all occasions. Our close interaction with our customers creates a cosy family environment.
