From the moment I walked in on a cold evening, I knew it was going to be special!
A warm welcome and even though I did not book, I was shown to a table.
The waiter suggested the lamb shank and it was divine. The ambiance is great and it is a popular place, so do book in advance.
Try the deserts, they are magnificent.

La Capannina was always one of our favourite restaurants, but lately it seems as if the dining experience is just not the same anymore. At our last lunch we experienced very slow service, and our food just wasn't the same good, delicious quality that we've become used to. We ended up only having starters, as there wasn't time for anything else. A lacklustre experience

Perhaps the kitchen was overwhelmed by the extended family that descended on its doorstep? Then again the booking for 12 should have given the game away.

The restaurant itself is charming, with a welcoming, warm and cozy atmosphere. The setting was ideal off an amazing night out.

The menu was interesting and I settled for some Pasta with Chili and Garlic. The dish was abundant, loads and loads of ok pasta with oil on it. The chili and garlic flavours were completely missing. Imagine 1/2 a kilo of over cooked pasta.

The waitering staff did their best to serve us, but it was hit and miss with orders forgotten.

Dessert was some non-descript dish that I cannot even recall.

Perhaps I have been spoilt by some amazing Italian home cooking?
