La Cantina Italian Chophouse

Patterned after a wine cellar with tucked away booths, this unique restaurant places diners amongst saltwater fish tanks to dine on traditional Italian steak and seafood dishes with a Northern Italian flair. House favorites include pasta staples like the tortellini tre formaggi-a three cheese filled pasta with fresh cherry tomato garlic basil sauce-and the lasagna al forno which combines pasta layers with meat filling, cream sauce and parmesan cheese. House specialities include manicotti with fresh tomato sauce, shrimp casaligna and spaghetti mare Monti. Steaks and chops are hand cut to order and include our famous "Cantina" Rib eye, 16 0unce T-bone and pork chops vesuvio. La Cantina is perfect for power lunches, theatre dining and famous Chicago steaks. The wine bar is the perfect setting for a romantic date or private deal making. With nods from Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast La Cantina has the largest wine cellar in the Midwest.

"We walked to La Cantina after an afternoon show at the Oriental Theater. We sat at a table as requested and the service was excellent. The salad was fresh and crisp, the wine was excellent. My lasagna noodles were a little more cooked than I like and the chocolate mousse we had for dessert was delicious."

"This place was recommended by a friend. We wanted to try the Italian Village upstairs but it was booked. The food was just okay. Nothing special or fancy about it for being a "chophouse"."

"My husband and I went there for dinner a few nights ago and everything was perfect! We ordered the calamari and it was some of the best we've ever had and we have a lot of it. It was not chewy at all, it almost melted in your mouth if that's at all possible with calamari. The only issue we had was that it was served with cocktail sauce, we prefer marinara. The bread was nice and crusty outside and very soft inside. The salads were very good as well. My husband ordered the chicken Parmesan. Wonderful. One of the most juiciest and moist pieces of chicken I've had. I ordered the sausage and peppers. Whoa. It's not something I would typically order from a restaurant because I think my dad makes the best but holy cow. My dad's is great but this was stellar! We ended our glutinous meal with tiramisu and cheesecake. Most authentic tiramisu I've ever had. Uh and I almost forgot about the wine! We ordered a wonderful montepulciano. It was smooth and almost too easy to drink. Can't wait to take my dad here, I know he will love it. And he's very particular about Italian grub! I can't wait to check it out again! It's amazing!"

"A convenient location in the loop for a pre-concert dinner. Solid, very good food, attentive service, at a reasonable price for the city. Booths are a little snug, so that's a bit of a negative, and not a lot of ambiance-a little cold. But the food was very good, and we enjoyed the experience."

"My wife and I were going to a live theater event at 8:00. Made 6 o'clock reservations and were seated immediately upon arrival. We ordered a bottle of the house wine, salad and bread basket came with the pasta entrees, lasagna (average), veal ragu on papardelle pasta and a wonderful shared dessert of rum cake with coffee in an hour. We liked the ambiance and the waiter was attentive but not hovering. We would definitely go back in the future."

"The service was slow, but the waitress was very attentive. The ambiance was very nice. If it hadn't been that we need to get to a play, I wouldn't be negative. The food was very good."

"Went here for Christmas Eve dinner expecting a very festive atmosphere. NOT festive at all. All diners were relegated to the back of the restaurant when the other areas of the restaurant were decorated and brighter and empty! No holiday music and the food must have been sitting waiting to be served..it came out in 10 minutes. Waiter was not in a holiday mood either. Will not go here for a holiday meal or otherwise for that matter."

"Been coming here for years prior to a show as they have the timing down perfectly. As was the case this evening! And the drinks, wine, food and service were spot on. Many favorites plus a special or two that we tried were terrific as usual and our server was attentive and cheerful, making a couple of suggestions we really appreciated. While not the top foo foo Italian restaurant in Chicago their solid choices, served with love and tasting great continue to please and you'd do a lot worse going anywhere else, particularly before the show. Bravo."

"We haven't been here for years, and we won't be back soon, if ever. The service was extremely slow and amateurish. The food was consistently poor. Many dishes were cold and most were flavorless and not as described on the menu. Plenty of other, better Italian restaurants in Chicago."
