Cantina italiana is wonderful food and fun

We had a party of five and we all had great food and fun. I called ahead for reservations for a Friday night out with the girls. When we got there our table was being set up. We were promptly seated and immediately served ice cold water. Our server Andrew met us timely as we were looking over the drink options; I had the espresso martini (it was perfect), and my friends had the sangria and mojitos. All were great. Andrew was very knowledgeable of the menu and it’s ingredients. We all had great meals;I had the Bombolotti alla Buongustaia-it was awesome. The one primary thing that made me select Cantina Italiana for our night out was that the majority of their pasta is HOMEMADE! If you are going to eat carbs make sure you eat them fresh! Only suggestion I have for the restaurant- better bread. I am a self proclaimed “bread-whore” and the bread served did not due the restaurant justice. It wasn’t flavorful and it wasn’t warm (though I doubt warmth would have helped this tasteless disappointment). With the exception of the bread you get five stars because our experience was outstanding.

Bombolotti Alla Buongustaia

Homemade pasta, shrimp, lobster is a wonderful red sauce.

  • The bar offers several libations rarely found in the North End, including Leffe, a boffo Belgian beer.
  • Accordionist Carmen Spada plays at the Cantina on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays from 6pm-9pm.
  • The good news: This is one of the few restaurants to offer valet service (during dinner only) in the parking space-challenged North End. The bad news? It'll set you back $20 (which still beats a long walk from the nearest T stop).
  • Celeb alert: This is one of the Bruins' favorite post-game hangouts.
