“Excellent Tasty Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

On a visit to Malta try to visit this restaurant. We are just back and had the tastiest fish (Bream) of our holiday. The food was cooked to perfection and the staff were very helpful, Not the cheapest meal, but definately the best one.

“Excellent as always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Every time I go to Malta, I visit this restaurant. This is because the food is delicious and the owners are always polite and courteous. The fish soup was delicious and the lobster with spaghetti was just mind-blowing. Unlike others, Capanna never disappointed me and this is why I keep on going back. Well done and keep it up.

“Good but not excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Visited this on a busy Sunday afternoon for lunch. Both hubby and myself had spaghetti with lobster which were very good...pity lobster was a tiny bit overcooked.
For main course my husband had the King Prawns which were perfectly cooked and very fresh, whilst I had calamari fritti which were slightly chewy.
The cassatella siciliana we had for dessert was delicious.
Overall a good experience but there's room for improvement.

“Fresh and delicious food, good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

I was there on summer 2012 with some friends. We had warm welcome from the staffs. Inside is not too big, but it is a warm and cozy place. Fresh and delicious sea food cuisine along with superb service. Would go there again.
