Always a favourite of mine. I love visiting this restaurant because of the fantastic level of service and the really well prepared food. If you like good Italian cooking, and you like to explore a cellar of genuine Italian wines, this is a place I would highly recommend. The welcome is warmhearted, the service is fantastic and the food is... More

The food is great the staff are fantastic, this is the perfect location for a special occasion, yes the atmosphere is slightly lacking but it is a an old fashioned Italian not a nightclub,... More

All pomp..no cucumstance..a great show.. but all smoke and mirrors.. Very cleverly done..when the owner sits in bar watching sky sports..well those who know..know. People swept along with the gusto of it all Daft prices for intemperate food. If you want theatre go..if you want good food ..don't.

I consider myself fortunate to have eaten in some of the worlds best restaurants, however my favourite would have to be La Capannina. My favourite dish is the beef carpaccio- which is well worth a try, and I personally consider the owner-Tino to be the last of the great restauranteurs. Fine visiting Jersey this restaurant is a must!

Stumbled upon this restaurant on first day in Jersey and decided to have lunch there. Food rather average and service a bit over the top. Expensive compared to other similar eateries discovered later during my visit to the island.

A constant timeless quality that cannot be equaled. This is a unique Jersey restaurant offering only the best in fresh food. And as for the service, well this is just perfection. We (the family) have being frequenting this restaurant since I was in short pants (50 years now!) I cannot recommend it enough.

Visited with our friends who are Jersey-based. We love Italian food and we're delighted with the old-school welcome at La Capannina taking Prosecco and Bellini's as aperitifs with olives and crudités whilst we awaited our table (we arrived early). The menu is extensive ticking all the boxes for Italian dishes and my tagliatelle starter was perfectly al dente, served on... More

Went here after walking out of Ormer Jersey and thank God we did. Cannot fault the food or the service. A real family feel with proper authentic Italian food.. Went to Rome last year but this place would take some beating even then. A must visit place to eat whilst visiting Jersey. Top notch
