Buon Giorno! La Cantina is now One year old, yes hard to believe that a whole year has passed since we opened our Culinary haven, here at No. 5 Boughton.

To celebrate our first busy year we held a party, many thanks to those of you who were able to come and a big thank you to all of you for your continued loyalty
and support during the last year.

We are tremendously proud of all we have achieved in such a short space of
time and look forward to sharing our continuing success with you all.
