We had the two course set lunch. Portions weren't enormous but perfectly adequate for lunch and at a very good price. It was great to find somewhere in such a touristy area that wasn't a chain and provides good food and good service.

Cantina was our neighborhood Italian restaurant when we lived in London. We always enjoyed coming here. The food is fresh and delicious, the location gives a great view of the Thames and the service is wonderful. Antonio in particular is a gem.
