If you're looking for good, honest, authentic style Italian then la capanna has to be the go-to. Always enjoy the food and the atmosphere.

I had the tortellini with mushroom and pea sauce, and it was sublime. Wonderful friendly service, and a nice ambiance in the restaurant.

absolute favourite pizza in Canberra- base is perfect balance between thick and thin and the ratio to toppings is exceptional. Would give it 5 as a takeaway, but the slightly small indoor area makes it a 4 for me.

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.

Dinner for four of us including entrees and mains came to $130. We took our own wine but the kids had a soft drink each. Most pasta mains are under $20.
