La Cantina

Genuine Jersey’s only restaurant member, La Cantina produces a range of fresh Genuine Jersey handmade pasta and gnocchi daily.

Our range includes both traditional and also gluten-free pasta in a wide variety of shapes, and we also produce fresh Jersey beef lasagne, cannelloni, and ravioli, including seasonal specials stuffed with local meats and foraged wild ingredients.

All the pasta is made using the finest imported Italian milled products paired with local fresh free-range eggs. Moreover, we source eggs with the darkest yolks to be found on the island to make the deepest golden yellow fresh pasta.
 The gnocchi is made using large locally grown, starchy potatoes and we also create exciting, seasonal specially-flavoured gnocchi and pasta including stinging-nettle and cuttlefish ink.

Along with our pasta, there are freshly made sourdough pizzas and bread, the daily blackboard specials feature whatever is in season, from locally caught seafood to Jersey-reared meats, foraged herbs and exclusive Italian finds that are imported directly each week.

La Cantina is where you will find real rustic Italian cooking using luxury Italian ingredients paired with the best ingredients Jersey has to offer.

Our family opened La Cantina in 1992 and we think it’s a perfect mix of Italian and Jersey just like I am! We work daily with local farmers and producers to source fresh, local, sustainable and seasonal ingredients. We don’t do ‘frozen’, we don’t serve ‘Britalian’ either! It’s about authentic Italian recipes and seasonal, healthy eating for the whole family, a relaxed atmosphere with a focus on quality and value of the food itself.
