The service was good and everybody very helpful. Unfortunately the food is extremely average but the prices are not!! Portions are miniscule. Quality of food was dubious - cheap ingredients and lacking imagination. Under its present offering this restaurant will not be in business for...More

This restaurant used to be called The Phoenix which was something of a destination eatery in the Barnes/Putney area before it went into decline. After a revamp by the same owners the Cantinetta emerged. Our first visit was not a great success, both the food...More

It's a shame the food is poor, as the setting is lovely. The food was very salty, and did tastes as if it had been frozen. I wouldn't recommend coming her for the food, but the terrace outside is lovely in the summer and the...More

Description
A pleasant ten minute walk from the centre of Putney and on the fringes of the common is Cantinetta, a neighbourhood Italian restaurant with a grand reputation. Two AA Rosettes have been awarded to the Cantinetta kitchen in recognition of the fabulous food produced by Chef Federico Tulli, who spent no less than seven years training under Britain���s king of Italian food Giorgio Locatelli, perfecting a style of cooking which has helped his venture to become much more than just another Italian restaurant. Firmly focused on quality ingredients, Tulli���s menu. Many of the items used are imported directly from Italy for the authentic flavour that infuses the simple dishes in which innovation meets tradition for a unique eating experience. Cantinetta is decorated in modern style; sleekly open-plan with well-spaced tables and a comfortable bar area where drinkers perch on high stools as they explore the excellent drinks menu. In the summer months, Cantinetta is a favourite al fresco dining spot, its spacious pavement terrace shaded by large parasols.
