“Good Italian if you're around Milsons Point”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Went there with a number of colleagues of my wife (who had been there before). They said the food was good. And they were not wrong.

Got the seafood frittura which I very much liked and then the Ribeye steak which was their special of the day. Cooked to specification (rare), healthy portion and not "fancied up". But good food and good taste (also can't understand how some people complain in the reviews below that the portions were small... Maybe they're used to American super-size me dishes...)

Now I do agree that the cost is disproportionate to the location/type of restaurant. But the service was friendly and the Tiramisu was worth it (had to order 2 of them, that's how much I liked it)

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Found the service very average, meals were disappointing - scallops were overcooked and smothered in breadcrumbs which completely ruined them, and as a lover of gnocchi, was very disappointed to be served a plate of "pomme noisettes" . If I wanted a plate of mashed potato I would have stayed at home! The meals were overpriced for the quantity of food served on the plate.

“Where is the love?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Sat down and our waiter greeted us and then came the worst whiff of B.O. i have ever smelt. It is hard to sit there and take a big breath of air before he came past as we didn't want to smell that again. Deodorant please!!
Ordered drinks from the menu, but the waiter came back and said that they dont make cocktails. We asked why is it on the menu then? couldn't answer that!! probably should have got up and walked out then.
Main course was ok but where was the love? For the price that i was going to pay i thought that the mains would be top notch, however it was just flavorless and the pasta was tough!!
The desert was panacotta was tasty but the sauce on the side was that terrible cottes choc sauce. you can always taste that flavour.
The bill came and said the he didn't charge us for one of the drinks due to the misshap at the start.

“Fantastico authentic Italiano”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

This is like a a blast from the past as this almost unknown Italian restaurant is operated by the same family that started the original l'incontro in North Sydney and the food, the service and the ambience at La Capannina is as good as the original.
I took our entire staff of twenty for our Christmas Party in early December and have returned twice already - and I'm there again next week when they re-open.
I like it!
