We were the only people in the restaurant and the food was tasteless and not up to the standards that we were identified from previous client reviews-perhaps we chose a bad day.

First of all the staff are fantastic, very attentive. The menu has a great selection, my favourite being the prawn and zucchini pasta dish. The wine is brilliant and the décor is spot on. Will come back again and again

It was a last minute Valentine's Day booking for a family of 3 but they squeezed us in early. The restaurant itself had a lovely warm feeling about it and loads of atmosphere. The food was obviously cooked to order rather than pre packed and warmed up, my son asked for bolognaise but with penne not spaghetti - not a... More

Popped in for dinner on a Saturday night, and enjoyed being in a traditional Italian restaurant. The staff were friendly, the food was excellent. Particularly enjoyed the risotto. Recommended!

Late review, went to this restaurant September last year. The service was friendly and good and the food was first class. My wife and I both had something from the daily specials board and both meals were absolutely superb. If we come back to Brighton again, then will definitely visit this restaurant again for a meal

OK, La Capannina, this is the last straw I'm afraid. I've been coming here for about 10 years. Not loads over that time, but plenty. It's very local to me and sometimes other people will suggest it and I'll think 'OK, maybe it's OK this time'. Simple local Italian. But no - it's rubbish every time. My late husband liked... More

Seriously. If you want an Italian meal in Brighton (Sussex?) go. It's got a great classic Italian trattoria vibe, the quirkiest service bell (think 1970s suburban doorbell), and simply great food. Good whitebait with mineral rich Chardonnay; a merlot with depth (not something I write often) with delicious ham, slightly underripe melon but with a lovely touch of fresh fig... More

After seeing all the positive reviews for this place on trip adviser we decided to pop in for a casual dinner. Hoping it could be friendly with good authentic food. Couldn't have been more disappointed. We went for the 2 courses for £12.95 which seemed like a fair price if the food was good. But the 'garlic pizza' starter had... More

You just have to try it on! Me and my partner enjoyed here a lot. Great food and not expensive at all. Thank you and I'm sure we will come back here again.
