Great little place. Staff were efficient and friendly. Clean and tidy Resturant although not the most modern decor. Had garlic bread, pizza, lasagna. All tasty. Pizza was awesome. Well worth it.

We enjoyed a quick dinner at La Capanna recently, recalling the tasty dishes from twenty-odd years ago when this little restaurant was our 'local'. We were not disappointed with the food - the restaurant may lack stylish decor but it more than makes up for it with tasty Italian food, a large wine list and enthusiastic and well-trained staff. We... More

Slow, rude and absolutely worse experience ever. Look at the picture, the way the pizza was cut and served reflects the whole experience.

Have had food from here numerous times over the last 9 months while on business in Canberra. Calzone is great! Uploading menu as I couldn't find it anywhere online.

Very bad experience, the first really bad experience I've had in many years of patronizing this restaurant. I had booked a table three days beforehand for Saturday 7 PM. I actually turned up an hour early and sure enough the restaurant was virtually empty. However, they told me I had to take the table right near the door, which is... More

Thank you Lacapana for never disappointing! When we lived in Kingston we would order from you at least once a month and you were amazing! I've since been back and you again, were amazing. LOVED your seafood pasta! Thank you!

We always look forward to dining at La Capanna because there's something for everyone. Last night we braved a freezing Canberra winter and piled into the small and cosy restaurant. Once a bustling main street in a fashionable neighbourhood, the area seemed less vibrant than before the Kingston Foreshore days, with several closed shops nearby. However the restaurant was busy...

La Capanna is a good honest suburban cafe. The decor has not changed for at least 20 years, and is now quite charming! It doesn't try to be a new hip hangout. The food has been updated but is still honest and good value for money. The traditional pizza toppings can still be had as well as updated toppings of... More
