It was a long journey to Brighton and we were pretty tired anyway. What we wanted was a straightforward Italian meal, with pleasant service and no hassles. La Capannina provided exactly that. We went early in the evening, when it was quiet,. By the time we left the place was full and the atmosphere lively. We had spaghetti with seafood... More

I am just back from this place and I had a very disappointing meal. I had a pasta, some bread and butter and some sparkling water which cost roughly $34 AUD. This was well overpriced for what I got. They charge you about $7 AUD for bread and butter. The butter was nearly frozen, but the bread!!! Seriously, it was... More

My husband and I ate here last Friday, the food was good apart from my husband pizza which he said was not the best he had tasted. I had the scallops with crab and cheese starter and my husband had the smoked salmon starter, both were very tasty and then I had the Veal Marsala which was lovely as were... More

This was a return visit. The welcome was as friendly as before, the service good and the bill amazing - but the quality of the food could be better. If you are on a budget this is an excellent place to visit.

Decked out in rather old-fashioned Italian restaurant style (but without the Chianti bottles) I suspected that this restaurant might serve up rather mediocre tourist trade Italian food, but time was short, so we gave it a try. Fortunately It turned out to be much better than that. My wife's risotto of mushrooms and prawns was particularly good, with plenty of... More

Small intimate family run genuine Italian. How many times have you heard that only to be disappointed? Well no disappointment here as it is the real thing. Friendly welcoming staff with a lovely atmosphere. The food was out of this world - I had garlic bread to start then off the 'specials' board cannelloni which was incredible and then the... More
