Dine at a Hidden Gem: Cantina Cafe Ristorante
May 10, 2016 | Admin
Cantina Cafe Ristorante has a lot working against it. The dining room is located in a basement, so there's no natural light to work with. The eatery doesn't have a formal website. It's located on a side street off the beaten path. And yet, even coming up against all of these potential issues, Cantina Cafe Restaurant has won many fans in the people of Middletown.
The food blogger behind Middletown, CT Restaurants calls its basement dining room "cozy" an "old school," noting that Cantina Cafe "feels like a secret" since its tucked away in a basement away from Main Street. Despite the fact that it's not particularly fancy, she praises the Sicilian fare, from the freshly baked rolls to the massive entrees. Dishes come family style, so order a few for your table and pass them around. According to people who've dined here before, chefs are always generous with portion sizes.
