We gathered that it is a very popular restaurant and it seems best to book in advance. The steak was done exactly as ordered - the creamed spinach was fresh, tasty & creamy. My blue cheese sauce absolutely delicious & creamy (they use real cream). Definitely worth a visit.

This is a long established, reliable and well run establishment with decent food provided by friendly and efficient staff.

Had a great dinner at La Capannina! The service was outstanding and the food excellent. We took our own wine which we had kept for a special occasion which the restaurant happily opened for us without charging corkage.

I love Italy! Everyone who knows me will tell you that my second home is Firenze (Florence) This eatery is authentic Italian food. No deep dish greasy pizzas with processed cheese. La Capannina does Italian fare the Italian way. Good Produce, Well Made and fresh ingredients, done simply. But Boy is it done well!! If you love real Italian food... More

This is a very popular Resterant in George and is recommended by a number of the corporate golf estates such as Fancourt which makes booking essential . We made a booking by telephone for 1930 , on arrival the booking could not be found and we were left standing about for about 15 min. I think they over book the... More
