La Cantina Overview

For ambient dining in Narrabundah, La Cantina Restaurant offers a charming venue, discreetly tucked away off Iluka Street and filled with old world glamour. Guests are invited into an open space resembling a cellar filled with contrasting warm adornments from Roman style brick walls, to classic Italian oil paintings under light cast from exposed globes for a vibe that feels intimate and exclusive. Locals in the know and the occasional politician sip coffee from a family roast dating back to 1909 and browse a menu of indulgent Italian fare, inspired by traditional dishes, featuring hearty favourites and modern specialties. Perhaps begin with crispy baby white bait with aioli before delving into mains like tender rosemary crumbed pork cutlet with dressed rocket and an apple chutney puree.

La Cantina Menu Sample

Carpaccio di Manzo: thinly sliced beef fillet marinated in seeded mustard vinaigrette rocket and Parmesan. Linguine Frutti di Mare: prawns, mussels, squid and Ocean Perch served in a light tomato sugo finished with olive oil and parsley.
