La Capannina, Scarborough

La Capannina

Found in the same complex as Scarborough Beaches’ multi-million-dollar outdoor swimming pool is Italian spot La Capannina. Meaning “The Shed” in Italian, this swish ocean view eatery is very far from its namesake!

La Capannina enjoys a great position overlooking the iconic Scarborough waves. We visited for lunch on a sunny spring day and the large outdoor dining area was filled with diners. The south westerly was in, so the glass didn’t provide a lot of shelter from the brisk sea breeze. For those who hate a draft, you can grab a blanket provided by the restaurant, or book a table inside the restaurant.

We were shown to a table outside, to make the most of that beautiful blue view. There’s plenty of drinks to choose from, since we were driving – we opted for some fruity and pretty mocktails. The menu is seafood-heavy with mostly modern Italian fayre.

You can go old school and pick you own entrée and main, but we decided to share a few dishes. First up was the Spanish chorizo with mint yogurt and a Mediterranean salsa. This was quickly followed by a fresh snapper crudo, perfectly pan fried octopus with spicy hummus and double fried potatoes, with lashings of sour cream.

Having had a light bite, we thought dessert would be a lovely way to finish lunch. We ordered a smoky chocolate cremeux and a tahini vanilla cream with meringue shards, which was a little plain. The desserts were fine, but not knock your socks off good.

The waitstaff were all pleasant and on the ball. I accidentally dropped my fork and quick as a flash our waiter replaced this without me having to ask. There is plenty of parking right outside the restaurant, including ACROD spaces. Please note this is mainly 2 hour parking and it does get busy at peak times.
