“Great Christmas Eve Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

We went there for a Christmas Eve dinner. We were 7 people and we had a lovely meal and were not rushed through it at all. The best rice balls!!!!! Great option for a low key Italian restaurant. The restaurant had all the basics, nothing too out of the ordinary. Good food, average price.

“Service Good, Food Not”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

My boyfriend wanted to take me out to dinner last night even though I barely wanted to get out of the house in the pouring rain. Should have stayed home and cooked. La Capannina is a restaurant/pizzeria. It has a nice cozy feel and is very clean. The service was good. We barely had our coats off and a waitress had already placed a basket of hot bread on the table. The menu was extensive. I ordered the eggplant parm, which came with a side of pasta of your choice. I got the linguine. My boyfriend settled on veal marsala, after wavering between a number of fish dishes. The first point is, being Italian, the red sauce is horrible. It looks like someone just opened a can of sauce and dumped it on top. No flavor at all!! The eggplant was passable, nice and tender and plenty of cheese. The veal marsala was inedible. Tasted like it was sitting in someone's refrigerator for a week. The mushrooms were cut in chunks rather than finely sliced so it gave the dish an awkward appearance too. The waitress graciously exchanged it for shrimp parm. Four glasses of wine and the meals came to $70 with the tip. We used a 10% off coupon. This place is probably good only for its pizza. The cuisine is forgettable.

“delicious and convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

A great Italian pizza restaurant. Conveniently located close to LIE 495 - especially if you are going out east and want a bite or going home and want to stop. The best are their garlic bread sticks complimentary. Their service is excellent.

Good for all.

“Excellent pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I probably come here at least twice a week during my lunch break at work. They get a lot of customers from local businesses so the pizza is always fresh out of the oven. Sometimes you have to wait 5 min for a pie to come out, but I'm not going to complain about fresh pizza. Staff is very friendly and nice, atmosphere is great. Perfect place for a nice, quick, relaxing lunch. Definitely try their margherita pizza, it's the best!

“good take out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

We got delivery/take out from La Capnnina. They only deliver to the Marriott Residence Inn, which is where we were staying. The pizza was very good. The service was excellent and punctual. I would definitely order from them again.
