Authentic Italian Restaurant in the Heart of England

My Vision

My name is Stefania. I’m an Italian woman, a wife and a mother who is passionate about food, health and the quality of life. La Cantina is literally my "sogno nel cassetto", a dream I kept all my life, my secret wish.


In Italy, ‘La Cantina’ is the local wine shop where you can taste and buy excellent wine along with treasures of Italian cuisine.

My goal was to create a place where my guests feel they are transported to my country, Italy, while feeling as comfortable as they would be in their own home. I hope that visitors to my bistro enjoy a unique and unforgettable dining experience.

The Harmony Between Food and Wine

The most luxurious cantina serves tasty, specific food to emphasise the pleasure that only a great glass of wine can bring. Like a traditional cantina, we aim to serve the finest Italian meals that are best paired with our wines.

Commitment to Quality

Our menu is inspired by seasonal products with a special focus on the tastiest cheeses and cured meats of Italy. Also, our meals are cooked from scratch with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. This way, we can ensure that you get only the best that we have to offer.
