“The food just kept getting better and better”
Review of La Cantina

La Cantina
Ranked #2 of 153 Restaurants in Widnes
Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 June 2016 via mobile

We had been told about La Cantina and my wife visited with friends the week before. She was so impressed that three of us tried it on a Saturday night. A cheery greeting from the gentleman in the ground floor bar who checked we had a reservation and then a choice of lift or stairs to the restaurant. First impressions were of a bright, airy and welcoming first floor restaurant with plenty of room between the tables and efficient and cheerful staff.
The first courses were very good, the entrees were excellent and the tiramisu was, quite simply, the best I have ever tasted.
Portions were ample without over facing us. We eat out frequently and La Cantina is rapidly becoming a favourite.

Thank Jeffrey B

First visit I was impressed very nice decor. Looked up the menus before going liked the look of early doors menu 2 courses 12.95 good selection. Had calamari perfectly cooked for starter, the chicken principesse (think that is what it was called) with cream garlic sauce mushrooms & asparagus & chips delicious. Very generous portions had to leave some of my chicken otherwise woulhave had noroom for creme brulee. My only criticism my chips were already seasoned & I dont like salt !! It would be nice to know!

Came here one night as a spare of the moment thing. The food was delicious and hot and so much better quality than anything we would usually expect in and around Widnes. We had a few drinks each and were pleasantly surprised by the bill :)

We booked at last minute for a family meal for a 70th Birthday and left well impressed. Good quality food, not overly expensive/good value for money - especially the early bird menu! and friendly helpful staff. This place is a hidden gem :)

May 16th, 2016. Birthday celebration party of 7 adults and 2 children. Greeted by Toby at downstairs reception bar who was extremely pleasant and helpful. Then on to the beautiful upstairs dining room (or via lift) to be served quality food at reasonable prices by co owner, Roy, who couldn`t have treated us better. Will return for sure.Thanks
