After the Camelia festival, locals referred us to this enormous restaurant, literally in the middle of nowhere. There is no way to judge the food by the building - it looks like a big catering hall. But upon entering you can see this place does HUGE VOLUME, and for a reason. The fagioli cooked in the oven are amazing, steak... More

Ate lunch here with a client - we sat outside on their terrace. Service was friendly and prompt despite it being very busy. Food was excellent especially the Florentine steak - you have to have this. Strongly recommended!

Our good fortune to find this place just by seeing a road sign. The locals obviously know about it. Sunday afternoon with families and friends. Wide range of dishes, including pizzas. You could tell this place was very well organized and family run. The sformatina was excellent. The cost is amazing given the quality.

We were welcomed warmly and our order was taken quickly. All the food was good - meat tasty and well cooked, pizzas light and satisfying. What let them down was the service when it got busier. The staff were delightful and working very hard, but simply had too many tables to cover. Not a terrible wait though, and I would... More

Actually, I was somewhat surprised that I'd never reviewed La Cantina before! It's now nine years since we first went there and our last two visits this month were as part of our first time back in Italy for over two years. To say nothing has changed might be seen as as a criticism but, from the welcome sight of... More

We were staying nearby in San Ginese and this restaurant was recommended by the owner of the apartment we were renting. We went there on our last night and wished we had been there earlier. It was a very extensive menu. I asked for the Italian version as I have been learning the language on and off for 4 years.... More

I wish I had time to stay and try more of their food. Our group of 9 arrived at 945 without reservations. Out of the 9 meals there wasn't a bad one. The beer was cold and our waitress was fun and engaging. If you are in the area stop for a meal.

The Fiorentina tradition in this area is strong and La Cantina is the best place in the area to have it. Side dishes: wood oven baked beans and fried porchini mushrooms. Just perfect. Our kids had pizza, very good too. Great place for families.
