Fast, friendly and great pizza

A quick dinner on a chilly Canberra night. Pizza was very good - prosciutto and mushroom with a lovely base. Salad was large and tasty although, as always, way too much lettuce - although a good range of leaves. Garlic bread disappointing - lacked garlic ! Young waiters were efficient and friendly... read more

Lovely food and atmosphere. There is plenty of choice of the Italian favourites. The service is good and the prices affordable. A relaxed place to eat out. BYO.

We came across this place on accident on Saturday night while travelling. The restaurant was full and lots of people were leaving with takeaway. We were lucky a family of 5 left as we walked in. We were travelling with 3 young children who were all tired and hungry. The waitress was very friendly and made us feel welcome, despite... More

It was a freezing Canberra night, but we thought we'd head into Kingston for a family meal at La Capanna. Somehow, the restaurant stuffed up our booking and we were sat right next to the door, so when everyone came in a freezing draft came straight through onto us. That was a little disappointing. The food though is fine. The... More

Enjoyed the specials board, with some adventurous new dishes I hadn't had before. Of course there's the traditional list to choose from too. Perfect for me on business trip, as I was staying on National Circuit, so enjoyed the short walk across to the Giles Street Foodie Prescient to dine and walk off the meal with the same walk back...

Found this restaurant through reviews on tripadvisor and was not disappointed. The service was outstanding - one of the most welcoming and happy waitresses I've ever come across. She knew the menu inside and out and recommended great wines and special treats to add to the mains. Food was great - the pasta wasn't just the generic flavours you get... More

Dined with family last Saturday evening. Food excellent and service better. The lady with the curly blonde hair went out of her way to make us happy on the evening. prices very reasonable for quality of food - try any of the pizzas with blue cheese - taste delight.

Ate at La Capanna last Friday night with friend. Wonderful, tasty and well presented food all served with a smile by great people working there. Would recommend at any time - leave some space for the dessert!

Arrived at end of lunch service but no problem, happy to serve us & gave us best table. No problem changing dish slightly & recommendations were spot-on. Serves were huge, food was delicious & didn't take long. We were given complimentary non-alcoholic drinks & attentive service. Very pleasant lunch.
