Very bad experience, the first really bad experience I've had in many years of patronizing this restaurant. I had booked a table three days beforehand for Saturday 7 PM. I actually turned up an hour early and sure enough the restaurant was virtually empty. However, they told me I had to take the table right near the door, which is... More

Thank you Lacapana for never disappointing! When we lived in Kingston we would order from you at least once a month and you were amazing! I've since been back and you again, were amazing. LOVED your seafood pasta! Thank you!

We always look forward to dining at La Capanna because there's something for everyone. Last night we braved a freezing Canberra winter and piled into the small and cosy restaurant. Once a bustling main street in a fashionable neighbourhood, the area seemed less vibrant than before the Kingston Foreshore days, with several closed shops nearby. However the restaurant was busy...

The food was reasonable, but not amazing. Service was relaxed. Our food seemed to arrive at random times rather than together.

Great for casual chilled dining. Food not exciting. Very basic and not a lot of taste. Service good.

Have visited this restaurant twice in the last month and thoroughly enjoyed both visits. The food is excellent and the staff are fantastic, providing a genuinely friendly and caring service. Well worth a visit if looking for a relaxed, high quality yet reasonably priced meal with friends or family. Will definitely be back again.

A modest Italian place in Kingston, the vibe is traditional check cloth kinda place. Good service from a friendly staff. Nice pizza, I enjoyed it. A solid offering in the area.

Went for a light lunch .. good menu choices, interesting wine list. The pizza was AOK and the friendly and prompt service knocked the socks off the place next door.
