At La Cantina in Paw Paw, Michigan, we pair excellent hand-crafted Italian food cooked by great chefs with a casual and fun atmosphere. We offer a great casual fine dining experience. Our homemade sauce blend compliments any of our pastas and Italian meats. We offer veal, New York strip, certified black angus filet, lobster, mussels, walleye, and other seafoods and are even known for our mouth-watering BBQ ribs. And as the first restaurant to offer pizza in the Southwest Michigan area, our hearth-baked pizzas are sure to delight. With a large selection of appetizers, dessert specials, full bar, and wine offerings, you may come in for a snack and ending up staying for the evening enjoying delicious food and great conversation.

La Cantina was founded in 1936 by Amo and Rose Scotese and continued by the efforts of their grandchildren and daughter Norma, who still shows up ready to work every day—even at the age of 92. When you’re here, the La Cantina staff will make your feel right at home as part of the family, and your taste buds and belly will thank you.
