Located in Kingston a quiet suburb of Canberra, this small restaurant serves pizza and pasta primarily. Service was smart and friendly and the food good at a reasonable price.

The food was pretty much what you'd expect from a suburban Italian restaurant and all three of us enjoyed our choices of pasta and pizza. The service was a bit hit and miss but the waitress was very apologetic for the delays. We... More

This restaurant has great pizza. I would highly recommend the CAMPAGNOLA, with Tomato base, rocket, fresh prosciutto and shaved parmesan. YUM. The pizza base is just right. Not too thick, not too thin, done in a pizza oven to perfection. 2 large pizza's between 4 of us only comes to $14 each. Not a bad price for a really good... More

my friend dragged me back here after a previous unpleasant experience. Big mistake once again. the food is o.k . the service was good despite the middle aged owner berating a waitress at the top of her voice from the kitchen area..so embarrassing. nothing worse really. we felt so sorry for the young girl.

Family friendly restaurant with suburb food and service. Best pasta and pizza! Must try antipasto and ravioli. Their pizza are most delicious. Great food, great wine and friendly host.

The ambiance was good - dark enough to feel romantic but lighted enough to see what we were eating. The food was very good, no complaints whatsoever with the cooking, price and quantity. Good for dates or get together with friends. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

Exactly what you'd expect from a family-run Italian restaurant. Good service, excellent food, generous proportions. Definitely a place to come back to.

I have been coming to La Capanna for many years. The pizzas are always great and the service is very friendly. If you are after a casual Italian, I would certainly recommend them.
