Went there for first time on spec early Friday evening. Everything you'd expect from a traditional family run Italian good food, good service and good vibe. Enough said, try it yourself.

Down an unlikely looking side-street in Kemptown, as soon as you walk through the door you feel enveloped by the atmosphere of Italy. Great foldover Pizza's, very delicious mozzarella tomato tricolore salad and the hustle and bustle of being abroad.

I visited this restaurant last weekend during my visit to Brighton as it was recommended by my B&B hosts. La Capannina is a lovely quaint restaurant with a varied menu of delicious fresh Italian food. The staff were very welcoming. I chose from the set lunch menu and had lasagne (the best I've ever had) and a green salad. I... More

Food is reasonable, with good big portions. Nice light thin dough pizzas and properly cooked pasta. The staff are Italian, so it all seems genuine. But it's a little dated for me - very like the 1970s, even down to Dean Martin and Perry Como singing in the background.

Came here for an evening meal with friends and must say we were not disappointed, there was a great choice of food and drinks and it was all lovely. The staff were all so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely eat here again if in the area
