Overpriced main course options that come without sides and the gluten free pizza was both shop bought and raw. Staff were friendly however unfortunately this does not make up for the poor excuse of the meal.

Lovely friendly restaurant, good service. We ate from the Tennerfest menu which was good value. The wine was also fabulous.

We came for Tennerfest 2015 and returned with friends in 2017. Great choice on the menu and outstanding food . . . not just good - truly outstanding. Good luck with the refurbishment, but don’t change too much. Hope to be back.

Nice enough, a little brightly lit. Very long wait for food that was acceptable but not outstanding. Polite service.

Description
The Island's ONLY Genuine Jersey restaurant member, for our fresh homemade specialities that use local ingredients. La Cantina have taken their family’s traditional Italian recipes, culinary ethos, and cooking techniques, and then added the finest local ingredients to recreate an authentic Italian experience. It’s food "just like Mamma used to make", with a fresh, modern twist, served without any fuss in a relaxed, vibrant environment.Everything is prepared from scratch, using top quality imported produce and local seasonal produce. The homemade pasta is fresh every day, and their pizza dough is made the traditional way, to a centuries-old Italian recipe using a ‘lievito madre’ natural yeast culture and fired in a stone oven for pizzas that taste as authentically Neapolitan as they come. Using the best of what Jersey has to offer they also make a range of delicacies including, homemade Italian style sausages using locally grown pork and seasonal foraged offerings, such as ‘gnocchi all'ortica’ stinging nettle gnocchi and local scallops with wild garlic.Along with the restaurant’s extensive menu, the blackboard specials feature whatever’s in season, from locally caught seafood to Jersey raised meats, foraged herbs and exclusive Italian finds that they import weekly into the Island. It’s real rustic Italian cooking using the best local ingredients. And while La Cantina keeps things ‘old school’ in the kitchen, the restaurant is bringing Italian food right up to date with a fresh whole-wheat version of their pastas and pizzas, and a menu that allows the guest to customize their meal. There’s a 100% Italian, price-banded, wine list that features exclusive wines that they import directly from the vineyard, and a large selection of wines by the glass.It’s a real taste of Italy, right here in Jersey with a bustling, Italian atmosphere where everyone instantly feels at home. You can also enjoy the La Cantina experience at home as you can take-away their entire menu.
