Beautiful setting and ambience. Service from the waiter was excellent. My fillet was not the best but my partner enjoyed her meal. Desserts was great.

The food was good as normal. Well above average. Unfortunately the service was not on standard. We were left alone for long periods especially when we arrived. Was necessary to call for someone to order and to pay. This is not the way to get...customers back.More

A great selection of various Mediterranean dishes,meaty and vegetarian. Situated in the center of town, friendly, helpful staff. We enjoyed a delicious meal with a glass of wine.

We have eaten at La Capannina for the last 15 years, but our latest experience was extremely disappointing. The one main course was a pizza, for which we waited approx. 45 minutes. We were then told that the pizza orders catered for the take outs...at a certain time in preference to the attendant patrons. No apology was forthcoming for the delay. This was wholly unacceptable. When the pizza finally came, the base was soggy, uncooked & wholly inedible. The other meal was no better than average, La Capannina has now been totally removed by us from the restaurants to eat at in George. In particular, better pizzas are available elsewhere.More

A regular for us over recent years, but after two consecutive visits this month it has fallen from our favour. Average food, pizzas with inadequate toppings, and lasagne that was virtually tasteless. Did it actually contain meat, I wonder? Will need to improve to regain...our custom.More

The food was absolutely devine and the staff are all very friendly, providing great service. The menu provides many mouthwatering options. The phyllo brie cheese starter was to die for.

Our favorite pizzeria in George! We only ordered take away, but did it several times as their pizzas were so delicious!!

I have never ordered a bad pizza here. Great and interesting selection from which to choose. Fresh, tasty ingredients. Perfectly wood-fired. My congratulations to the chef!

A lovely cosy intimate or family-friendly restaurant that smells of Italy the moment you walk in. With a vast wine list, and fabulous food choices from pastas to pizzas, seafood to house specialities (I can vouch for the lamb shank and eggplant parmigiana) anyone’s taste...is catered for even if you’re not in the mood for the usual carb-heavy Italian menu. The service is fast and friendly, and the portions are generous. An unforgettable end to a forgettable 2021!!More
