OK Trattoria

It looks like an Italian trattoria, it sounds like an Italian trattoria, and offers basic menu of an Italian trattoria - more or less.

Very nice evening in a busy place with a happy atmosphere. Extremely good and tasty pasta dishes at a very reasonable price, prepared without skimping on ingredients. Pleasant and competent waiting staff. Some good Italian wines! Will return:)))

We rocked up at almost afternoon closing time for a late lunch. The atmosphere is quite (not like the restaurant up the road where the music was quite loud). I will definitely be returning to try more of the dishes on the menu.

We went to La Capanna for a casual birthday dinner after not having been there in ages. It was a total disappointment. The pizzas were bland and salad harked back to the 80's. 'm a bit sick of paying good money for food with no flavour and no love!

The menu was limited to pasta, pizza and a few fish dishes, nothing modern or adventurous. Portions of lasagna were small and not a salad leaf or bread with it. Prices were a bit high for what was delivered. Had to ask for Parmesan and pepper. Staff pleasant.

Excellent food as usual, very busy on the night, service was a little off than usual, but still very enjoyable. Never dissatisfied with quality meals served to me 😉

Visited recently on Canberra trip. Service a little slow on a Friday night but pizzas were excellent, fresh & hot. Very busy in the street and restaurants nearby. Pleased we chose La Capanna.

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.
