Last night I got to enjoy the Chateaubriand fillet and it's the best I've had in George hands down. Perfectly done as requested rare to medium. The chive mash was perfectly seasoned and the veggies were fresh and crunchy. The wine was fabulous. Friendly service and great ambiance which was very nice and cosy. Overall a great experience.

We made a return visit after a gap of a few years. Have visited this restaurant many times over past 15 years and always had good service , food and value for money. Big menu and thus caters for all. Always worth a visit when visiting George

If you love Italian food then this is the place for you. Exceptional pizza and delectable pastas. The waiters are well informed, friendly and efficient. The wine list is also very good. One could very easily spend a whole evening here without realizing the time flying by.

We gathered that it is a very popular restaurant and it seems best to book in advance. The steak was done exactly as ordered - the creamed spinach was fresh, tasty & creamy. My blue cheese sauce absolutely delicious & creamy (they use real cream). Definitely worth a visit.

This is a long established, reliable and well run establishment with decent food provided by friendly and efficient staff. The ambience is warm and cosy inside while the balcony seating is pleasant and sufficiently off the road and away from the main street traffic. Thin based pizzas and tasty pastas are well prepared and you can't really go wrong with... More

Had a great dinner at La Capannina! The service was outstanding and the food excellent. We took our own wine which we had kept for a special occasion which the restaurant happily opened for us without charging corkage.
