    This restaurant was excellent. The menu was short but based upon fresh ingredients. The selections were not your usual Italian fare. The wine selection was good. The service was superb-friendly and efficient. We will definitely return (probably many times) to this restaurant.

    Food and service are typically top notch. Food has never failed us. Our server was spectacular the evening of our last visit.

    I was apprehensive about visiting Bar Cantinetta, especially since the previous restaurant was a not so good crepe place. I'm glad we went! The menu was fantastic and the service was great. Definitely a neighborhood gem.

    We had a fantastic time - the food was delicious and thoughtfully prepared, and the service was attentive and friendly. The gnocchi was the best I've ever had, and I can't stop thinking about the fried squash blossoms.

    Well-balanced menu that evolves with the seasons. Food executed with a magic touch. Cocktails that step out of the ordinary. Attentive and discreet service. Ambiance that makes you feel like you've found something special. And you have. So bring someone special!

    We love this restaurant- food is sooo good and the menu changes regularly too. I love the size of the restaurant as it means that the place does not become overly noisy when busy....

    My partner and I decided to celebrate our anniversary at Bar Cantinetta. It's blocks from our house and we've been looking forward to checking it out. Since we were dining in a Thursday evening I almost didn't make a reservation. I'm glad I did as the place was already packed when we arrived at 6:30. We started with beef tartare and a dungunes crab cocktail for appetizers. Both were very good, although the crab could have been cleaned a bit better; I found a few shells. We both opted for pasta as our main course. Both were excellent. The menu and wine list are both small but everything on them looked appealing. The space is also small and the noise level became a bit overwhelming by the end of our meal since the place was full.

    This is a cute little place, inviting and not too large or noisy. We had a lovely dinner hear to celebrate a birthday. The food was outstanding and service was excellent and friendly. We will definitely be back here again soon!
