One of the most popular restaurants in George, La Capannina (“little house”) is situated in an attractive house with imposing façade that gives a hint of the warm welcome that awaits you within. Hosts Chips and Margie, together with an attentive team, are on hand to provide first class, friendly service to make your meal a memorable one. The country-style décor in autumn shades of green, gold and copper red is complemented by the rustic wooden furniture and wrought iron fixtures.
The walls are enhanced by a selection of interesting artwork which adds impact to the décor, and provides diners with some additional food for thought as all the artwork is the sale. In the evenings candlelight creates a soft intimate atmosphere, and there are smoking and non smoking sections, as well as a front patio area for al fresco dining. A wood-burning pizza oven adds to the overall continental ambience, and ensures that the pizzas are baked to perfection with thin crispy bases which is the true Italian style pizza.
A comprehensive menu offers pasta, pizza, fish, grills and a good choice of specials. Popular starters include the deep-fried Brie and Bacon, or the Baked Avocado. Specialities which are highly recommended are the Chicken Breast with Spinach and Ricotta or the Veal Masala. Meat lovers will enjoy the Lamb Shank and the steaks are always good. There are pasta dishes for vegetarians, with the Panzarotti Pasta with Blue Cheese Sauce a good recommendation.
