We were in Brighton for the day and wanted lunch. Quickly typed in places to eat and this gem appeared. It was very quaint. There isn't a lot of seats but thankfully we didn't have too much trouble getting a seat for 6 of us....More

La Capannina offers some decent Italian food which is better than other places for its price. Their fritto misto is polluted by a useless chuck of salmon, but it's edible. Overall, I recommend it.

Staying just across the road to this restaurant, we were lazy and didn't go searching for anywhere else on our first evening staying in Brighton. I'm so glad we didn't! It is so good, we returned the next night too. Wonderful quality and generous portions,...More

Arriving late evening and with empty stomachs to our Kemptown guesthouse we asked our host for a local dinner recommendation, "For a decent local Italian we all eat at Las Capaninas". Enough said. Walked in just after 9pm on a Thursday, all tables except one...More

Didn't see any gluten free options openly available. My daughters gluten free so you have my sympathy. Worth a phone call though

Plenty of pasta dishes, but also catering for meat and fish eaters. Really good olives, and the house wine is very drinkable. Family run and reasonably priced. Enjoy
