I just popped in for lunch on a rainy day. The staff were very friendly and helpful! The atmosphere in the restaurant made up for the rain outside and I felt totally at ease! The checked pasta was really awesome and I'd recommend it to anyone that's hungry😊😊

La Capannina an all time favourite which I visit often. Whether you choose meat, fish salad or pizza the choice is extremely difficult. Everything is a personal favourite. The choice would be how hungry are you or not. Whatever the choice, the food is cooked to perfection, with a selection of wines and service to match. The new décor is... More

Some months ago this restaurant was highly recommended to us when we were about to visit George. We loved it so much then that we returned on our very next visit to George recently. If anything, it was even better. A good variety of choice on the menu and friendly and efficient service complement the tasty meals.

Every time I go to George for business I book at La Capannina for dinner. The food very good again. Our host was a delightful young man. The restaurant is still very cosy and warm. Not too much noise which is always a pleasure. Restaurants are generally becoming very noisy but La Capannina was very pleasant. Everyone who works there... More

Excellent pasta dishes, friendly efficient staff and a great atmosphere. Surely one of my favourite eating places on the Garden Route.

Enjoyed 2 or three evening meals. Service was outstanding, and was made to feel very welcome - the treat of a small mug of soup as you are seated was especially welcoming. The food was good although some of the choices offer "fresh chunky veg" (not sure of wording), and was served a stir-fry type veg instead. Overall an enjoyable... More

Very cosy and warm atmosphere. Service is excellent. Menu offers a wide variety. I opted for a chateaubriand and it was prepared and presented to perfection. Overall an extremely great experience.

this restaurant provides an authentic Italian casual food experience and its food is good , tasty and fair value.The service is nice and friendly and it is well supported so it has a good vibe. I would suggest booking rather than popping in. The offer some good wine by the glass options which makes it stand out for me.
