I made the trip out to la Capanna recently because it used to be one of my favourite restaurants. I was so disappointed, the food was terrible, the service was okay but we waited so long for our food. We asked for water 3 times and never got it. I don't know what happend to this place but I will... More

La Capana is just a nice place to eat good Italian food. We have never had a bad meal here & the hosts are really nice.

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.

Had a meal on a Sunday evening. Nice atmosphere, but slightly cramped due to closeness of tables - our son could not move easily from his seat, and one chair was impossible to use as it backed onto another table. That being said, the meal we had was very good. The small pizza for children was perfect size, and obviously... More

We stopped here for lunch. Great service & great food. First up we had great coffee. Next a great soup & as my title says "best pizza ever". We finished of with Italian deserts. YUM, and generous servings. The service was great, wouldn't complain at all & so reading the previous reviews makes me feel like we must be talking... More

We've been going to La Capanna for years, and have always found the food & service delightful, and the restaurant cozy & full of character. It seems to have changed hands, and while the food remains fantastic - the service is lacking. While the more mature male waiter leaned against the door staring into space & the young female waitress... More
