This will go down as the worst pizzas i have ever ordered. Pizza’s under cooked and disgusting. As example order a Margherita pizza with olives and capers. Firstly spot the cheese was the experience, then you will look for some lonely capers and olives. WOW...what a disappointment. I shall stop here as it does not justify wasting my time. Only one recommendation, stay away.More

Sensational restaurant! Food is amazing! We ate here every night for three nights. We tried many dishes on the menu and the quality was just incredible! Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Cannot rate a restaurant higher than this. If you are in George don’t...miss it!More

When visiting George you must have a meal here. We have never been disappointed in over 10 years of visiting La Capannina. We always make sure we have at least one meal here when in the area. Today was again excellent.

My husband has always told me about "the restaurant with the GREAT pizzas in George". He hasn't been here for 15 years. Today we popped in for a quick visit. Still great. 🙂 The pizzas are immaculate and served by friendly staff. Really worth a...visit.More

We visit regularly and are never disappointed... my favourites are seared tuna, and their risotto dishes, but everything we've ever ordered has been lovely. The staff are incredible.

It is sad that a once excellent restaurant can degrade to a second hand cafe. The food was average to poor, the service good and only two tables were occupied. I know that one should not eat in empty restaurants, but it was unimaginable to...me that it could become so bad since our last visit that I did not listen to my eyes. One of us is suffering today from diarrhoea from the steak he had. Goodbye and good riddance.More

Arguably one of the best lunches I have had in years, my chicken parmigiana and my wife’s seafood risotto was full of taste and the owners personal attention to detail shows.
