CANTINA is Italian for WINE CELLAR. WINE & CHAT is the concept. This is the right place to get good wine from a large selection of many types. Meet your friends or make new ones!
Besides wine, we serve many of the most traditional family-style Italian dishes, together with our homemade gelato, tiramisu and much more.
I went for pizza and wine yesterday. The service was good, on time, nice management. pizzas (4 cheeses & vegeterian) were tasty, handmade and fresh ingredients. the Chianti is on point, perfectly matched our experience.
authentic italian food 10000km far from italy for a decent price is respectable.
Pizza in our time? Silly argument, let's forget it.
@cloudtrapezer sorry about my 4 stars review, owners should have a ZERO option to answer reviews, i will suggest to Gokunming managers (i am giving 1 star to this review, so it should be fair enough)
As you could have seen in all my answers, i am used to NEVER reply to critics about our dishes (recently someone said UNEATABLE, poor and so on) because we are all free and different, personally i could like a food that is considered uneatable for others, and i accept all the critics in constructive way.
I am sorry if you are not going to be here anymore, but this is a forum, people write their opinions, good critics and bad critics (thank you to have written that you consider us the best western restaurant after Sofitel)
But if anybody write Cantina is expensive, of course i reply immediately. As i am very frequently eating in ALL other Kunming western restaurants i know very well prices, it's a fact that we are the cheapest (of course mixian places are cheaper than us).
I would like to continue this conversation face by face, with a good bottle of wine, my treat, anytime you want
Let's be honest. This place is great. You use to eat your fast food and totally forgot that you need a lot of time to prepear nice meal, not f*** frozen burger. Here you can choose bunch of dishes, if u want pizza, please, salad, pasta, desserts, also burgers. We've never tried pasta there, but you don't go in the restaurant to eat the dish, which you can make at home, but lasagna was the best in Kunming. Pizza is amazing, we tried different kinds and every time it's fresh, juicy, hot. Chicken salad is so big that after you don't want anything else. Price might be higher that on other restaurants, but here u pay for quality and great atmosphere. Don't compare Chinese-Italian restaurants Chinese noodles with Italian restaurant, where the owner is Italian, where ingredients are Italian, where wine is Italian. If u still don't understand what I'm talking about, visit cabana or papa Johns, in cabana u can try cheaper pasta and in papa u can try expensive pizza.
This is the only autentic Italian restaurant in Kunming.
Really good pizza and steaks. The wine machine fuddles me when I'm a bit fuddled, & seems unnecessary. Good folks on both sides of the bar.
