  1. Good evening, In 1976 I worked at la capannina restaurant om Abbeydale Road. I remember the Chef was called Antonino (Nino) Accordino who would make me a creamy dish everynight before I started work. Does anyone remember this restaurant or Nino or anyone else who worked there. I also remember the two owners were a *** couple that lived in Dore. Anyone know if Nino is still in Sheffield or if he went back to Italy?
