You just have to try it on! Me and my partner enjoyed here a lot. Great food and not expensive at all. Thank you and I'm sure we will come back here again.

This restaurant had a beautiful look with hanging baskets of flowers outside the window and soft, warm lighting inside. It felt like stepping into a little slice of Italy and the waiters were friendly and welcoming. It is perfect for couples or a small group of friends who are looking for a varied and reasonably priced menu and a cosy... More

Perhaps I am a little biased. La Capannina was the first place my husband and I went for dinner 14 years ago! Having moved out of the area we revisited once when the ownership changed hands. The new owners were not as attentive and whilst the food was good they could have done more. So, imagine my excitement when I... More

We were a large family party looking fo somewhere to eat during the Christmas holidays and settled for this. In some ways it met our needs very well. We had a big table and our own space, our American grandchildren loved the pasta and the prices were reasonable for Brighton. However approval of the food wasn't universal. I had a... More

I popped here for a quick dinner the other night and was pleasantly surprised. I have been in the past but had found that over time it had gone a bit down hill. However, this seems to have changed. The service was quick and friendly and the food was hot and tasted very good. I had the spaghetti bolognese which... More

Had bruschetta and pasta with broccoli and cream sauce. The chef hardly gave us time to choose, was quite unfriendly and as soon as we finished our mains and didn't want dessert we got the check unwanted and had the feeling we had to move for the next. Food was not as one would expect at a genuine Italian. Would... More

Be it pasta, pizza, meat or seafood it seems that this restaurant just gets it right. Actually our fourth visit and couldn't ask for more. The menu is extensive enough to always make it a slightly difficult choice. Flavours are amazing and the prices very reasonable. Efficient more than friendly staff but in no way negative. Has become our go... More
