On Saturday 11th March, 3 of us went to La Capannina for a lovely meal. We were given a warm welcome and sat down for drinks in the bar area. Nibbles were served with our drinks and we had a good look at the menu. It was great not to be rushed particularly as the restaurant was very busy. The... More

Poor, poor service by arrogant and rude staff. Special night ruined. I now understand why it's one of the oldest in Jersey.

Our, all too infrequent, visits to Jersey always include dinner at the Capannina and it never fails to impress. This time we had booked several months earlier for the friday night before Christmas suspecting that it might be quite busy. It was in fact furiously busy and we were momentarily worried that this usually wonderful restaurant might not be up... More

Fantastic restaurant with incredible food and service which is second to none. If you are looking to celebrate a special occasion or simply want to enjoy a consistently fabulous meal then look no further.

Had been looking forward to dinner at this restaurant with two friends, the reservation had been made some time ago and it was to be a special pre-Christmas get together. The greeting on arrival was very unwelcoming and I was shown to the table while I awaited the arrival of my 2 friends. They arrived soon after and pre-dinner drinks... More

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

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!
