Cantina • Wine & Chat • 9 Hongshan Dong Lu, Backstreet Block, building 11-1


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.



Been here several times lately and every time I've enjoyed my meal. Don't know why some others have said it was pricey, the price has always seemed fair to me :)


Went here and got the nine inch "large" pizza. Wasn't cheap. What little bit of cheese there on it was in clumps and parts were still cold. What his the aversion pizza places here to actually using spices and ingredients? It was totally bland and tasteless. I would also say it was more like a 7 1/2 inch pizza as the crust area was an inch or more. What a rip off. Will never go back.


Good selection of wines and desserts. Food is consistently nice as well, although a bit expensive. Great decor and service.


Went here a while back, hoping to get some good Italian food. Considering it is fairly pricy you would at least expect some kind of quality. However, I ordered the pasta carbonara, but what I got was basically only pasta and some sauce. Had to look hard for any traces of meat. Also no vegetables at all. Definitely not worth the money.


A group of four of us (two Chinese and two Americans) decided to try this restaurant as we'd heard so much good about it. "What a fantastically dreadful place", my only response. One of our Chinese partner's pasta came with the "complimentary two inch human hair gracing the top of her plate". When she pointed it out to the server he called the manager over who reached in with her fingers, removed the hair then walked away. When my friend protested the manager became demonstrably annoyed (poor thing had her wine drinking and smoking interrupted) and finally provided a new plate (we think) of pasta for her.
So where was the owner of this establishment? Give this place a pass, stay home and make your own pasta. You'll be much happier. The food is very common and the service is atrocious. I give it one year max before it's out of business.
