La Capanna is a taverna-style Italian restaurant offering a haven of calm amid the surrounding hustle and bustle of busy Mansfield Road. What it delivers on the inside, along with charm and warmth, is classic Italian fare, about which the staff are clearly passionate.

There is a wide range of vegetarian dishes on offer – the starters we enjoyed of sundried tomato and olive bruschetta and artichoke hearts sautéed with tomato and garlic are two tasty examples. The chefs are delightfully flexible when it comes to the menu; my companion, who is dairy intolerant, was assured she could choose any dish and it would be altered especially for her. She was subsequently enthusing over her sumptuous dish of steak with red wine and mushroom sauce long after it had been cleared away. My monkfish with prawns, tomatoes and white wine sauce was bursting with flavour and, like the steak, was accompanied by well-seasoned rosemary potatoes and vegetables.

For dessert, I was treated to a trio of the house specials; the tiramisu in particular was deliciously light and melted on the tongue. All this, along with a bottle of delectable red wine, resulted in a very reasonable bill. La Capanna’s authenticity and distinct character makes it a wonderful little rustic Italian hideaway.
