We dined at La Capannina last night with friends who were visiting from overseas ...we all had the most wonderful dinner, totally faultless...entrees of poached scallops, with baby beets & applesauce , the best ever Caprese salad ....followed by possibly the best prawn dish I have had in the world !! The steaks were apparently excellent...those who ate them last... More

Typical Italian family run restaurant at a great location (just under Sydney Harbour Bridge north end). Good or bad weather, full house or just a few customers, this place continues to please clientele. We would always plan at least one dinner at La... More

Been to the restaurant twice. Enjoyed it sufficiently the first time to want to go again. On the second occasion I noticed that, in very small print, they had a 1.5% surcharge not only for credit card payments but also for EFTPOS. This is surely unusual? So although the food is fine, I am not sure that I will be... More

Love Italian food and we were not disappointed! Shared entrees were lovely and tasty, but my steak for main was just divine. Perfectly cooked rare, which my knife just fell through! Lovely wine list and really nice service, made for a beautiful evening.

With a superb view at the Harbour bridge we had great food at la Capannina. We met the owner at a tour on Fraser Island and we are happy they told us they own a restaurant in Sydney. The Risotto and crab linquini were cooked perfect al dente. Nice family restaurant with a good atmosphere. It is nice to walk... More

For what you get it's quite expensive. Our mains were small and to be honest very average. Service is fair

A small but vibrant restaurant run by a friendly Italian family. Smiles come with all the meals which a full of flavour, albeit on the small side. The benefit here is that it can give you some room for desert. All quite simple fare, done well. a glimpse of the bridge is always pretty good, with an outdoor area under... More
