Excellent Italian food, in a cosy setting. My husband had pizza which was excellent, and I had pasta, which I could tell was made in house, with an excellent mushroom sauce. Definitely would visit again.

We used to frequent this restaurant when we lived in Canberra and have always enjoyed its cosy ambience and tasty pizzas. Our experience on this occasion was again very pleasant, with great pizzas. - just what we felt like on a cold Canberra autumn evening.

We had the Raviolli as well as the Tortellini, absolutely delicious. We knew we had come to a good simple restaurant as within 30 minutes the place was full of families and couples.

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.

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