La Cantina is my favourite Italian restaurant bar none. The lasagna is served straight from the oven and is still bubbling when it hits the table. The Glazed Walnut salad is also definitely worth trying as a shared appetizer or a main course. If you can get your hands on the mushroom soup (it is sometimes featured as the soup du jour) don't even think just order it!
La Cantina also has some of the best Sangria I've ever had as well as deliciously decadent homemade tirimisu.
Their pizzas also make an amazing entree--sometimes I get the margherita pizza to share as an appetizer--they have a real wood-burning oven which makes the pizza extraordinary.
La Cantina is a great place to take family or friends who are visitting Hamilton from out of town. It's an impressive, casual yet somewhat fancy place where you'll feel at home dressed smart casual or dressy. The food is amazing. The salads are huge. my favourite soup anywhere on earth is from here: the Strachatella (sp)! And their Italian food is to die for. They have food heared to special dietary restrictions too, including rice noodles, gluten free and whole wheat.
La Cantina is my go-to place for Italian. They have 3 different areas to dine - The patio, the bar and the dining room. All have that great ambiance that makes you feel like you're one of the family. This is Italian food the way that it was meant to be. Fresh ingredients, warm bread and HUGE portions will make La Cantina your favourite too.
This is really two restaurants in one. A dining room serves up plates of veal scaloppini in a dry Marsala sauce, and seared ostrich medallions cooked with pinot noir. The casual pizzeria features more than 20 varieties of pizza, including the traditional Quattro Stagione (four seasons) with prosciutto, artichokes, olives, and mozzarella. This is a very popular spot, so try to make a reservation... more
To be honest, I don't understand the popularity of this place. The food is OK, I suppose - nothing fantastic, and overpriced. The service is average, but the wait times to get a table are a little silly. What irks me about this place is the noise level...it's like dining at a roadside bar - definitely anything but relaxing.

I used to love this little place. It was a gem in the city, and I'm not sure what happened. On a recent business lunch, upon arrival, the hostess looks at us and says "dinning room or bar?". No hello, no "Welcome to La Cantina", nothing.
When our waiter came, he did not make eye contact with me once, he... more
I recently had a business dinner for ten at La Cantina. We went here based on prior visits. The quality of the food is significantly below prior visits and not worth the prices. The grilled calamari was so rubbery it was inedible. The steaks were average and the pasta dish arrived lukewarm. The service was a little slow. There are... more
