SUPER loud & crowded. Wish they could have seated us upstairs (as requested in our reservation) as we were celebrating Xmas & would have enjoyed the extra room & quieter environment for talking & exchanging gifts.

Server started out with a bit of an attitude but ended up being very good - friendly & attentive, although not very helpful for the 2 in the party who had questions about the wine.

As usual, bathrooms needed attention! Why can’t they set a schedule here & monitor them to maintain cleanliness & supplies?

Food was delicious. First time here for 2 in our party of 4 & everyone enjoyed their meal.

Since we weren’t “couples”, it would be nice to have a small individual oil & balsamic dip for each person rather than a bowl for the table to share. Adding some herbs, grated cheese & fresh ground pepper would make it much better!

Although it’s really loud in the restaurant, it’s worth the trip to dine there! The carpaccio appetizer was outstanding! Our entrees were wonderful! We ordered the chicken with artichokes and capers and the penne with vodka sauce. Both were delicious!
We will definitely go back !

My Penna a Putanesca was just barely so so. Not a lot of flavor, no anchovies. The server was polite but not friendly. No need to dance or jump for our group to come in for lunch, but a welcoming smile would be expected. Certainly not the food you get in Italy.
On the other hand the grocery store is worth to spend time shopping. Fabulous.

The food was excellent, but the noise level and total chaos in the parking lot (with the market shoppers) lessened my enjoyment considerably. Way too "trendy" for my comfort zone.

When we arrived we were greeted by the friendly hostess and guided to our table,I was kinda upset because i requested candles but their were none but it’s okay. The atmosphere was super Loud and tables were cramped, it was honestly hard to hear our conversation. The food portion was GREAT! they are very generous about that, the food taste was on point. Only MAJOR issue was we had was 2 of the mussels in the pasta had by far the worst taste I’ve ever had encountered in my food! It ruined our appetite really bad, but that was towards the end, it was still amazing tho we just couldn’t finish it after that taste. I definitely recommend this restaurant tho!

Cantoro’s is a great restaurant. The food is fantastic and our server Brianna was top shelf. She was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. She gave us excellent suggestions and service. My only criticism of Cantoro’s is the value. Menu items and drinks are pricy for the atmosphere of the restaurant. The dining area is cramped and loud.

Enrique, our server was the best! Offered great suggestions for wine paired with our meal choices. Really fresh, delicious Italian fare. We all had something different- steak, pasta, pizza, chicken and everyone loved their meal.
Minestrone soup had great flavor, but was not very hot when served.
