A word from Capocaccia
WELCOME TO CAPOCACCIA! When you walk in through the towering glass doors, you are met by owner Salvatore Mele or one of our friendly managers. First impressions are key! Towering ceilings and a multistory wine rack puts a spotlight on every wine bottle. Deep-grained wood tables set up close together are lit softly to create an intimate bistro-style environment. Many regulars prefer sitting at our long bar or our high communal table, but you may choose the cozy tables or outside covered patio during the summer months.

With comfort at its heart, Capocaccia is a lighthearted and fresh take on trendy dining where guests can look and feel great, while enjoying the very best of Italian cuisine. We have an Italian Chef that puts Italian heart into every dish…. from pizzas, pastas, antipasto and salads to the specials of the day. Cibo Italiano.

    My business lunch for two lasted four hours. Waitstaff checked on us frequently but we never felt rushed or interrupted. Everything about the place contributed to a very successful meeting. I would dine there again with friends and family as I have done before, but I'd also return for professional meals/meetings.

    The family that runs this restaurant are great. Good, casual dining, nice atmosphere, good food, fantastic pizza and reasonably priced. I keep coming back for a reason - it's predictably good. My guest said to me, "I didn't even know this place was here, but I am glad I know now." The renovations make it even nicer, great outdoor dining and nice indoors too.

    Though I had been here for dinner before with young relatives and all loved it, my bro. and I found the non-pasta options very limited. We would highly recommend Lunch. The food is always very good and the service just right. The one thing we did both notice however is that it has become pricey. Again for dinner we can think of better options with equally lovely patios for dinner at lower prices. We would however continue to recommend for lunch.

    The two men in our group both ordered the veal......when it arrived at the table, we all looked at each other and giggled.....the portions were tiny. My husband had to make more food when he we got home and he isn't a big eater!!! I'd suggest ordering the pasta, which was delicious and the portion big.

The energy level was fantastic from the bar to the tables. Had a simple but very good wine list from affordable to reasonable.

    Service terrible. Not busy. Only one other table in our area was occupied. After taking our order we did not see our waiter until table was cleared! Pizza was very good, but only 3 pieces of basil the size of a fingernail-really??? Eggplant -tomato sauce tasty but isn't eggplant Parmesan supposed to have cheese?

    I like this restaurant and it is very conveniently located. The welcome is always warm and friendly, the environment very attractive and the menu appealing. Our waiter was particularly helpful in explaining dishes and had a delightful sense of humour which added to the fun. Food: Our appetizer (mozzarella & tomatoes) was excellent. Unfortunately, the salmon main course was over-cooked, not medium/rare as requested, but the accompanying vegetables wee excellent. The main course pasta was delicious.

    Our server was a young lady who was friendly, knew her menu and was very helpful with suggestions. Lovely casual place which had a good mix of diners when we arrived and then became a younger crowd as the evening progressed. Music got louder as evening progressed making conversation difficult but we were most done by then. Food was tasty, good pizza, pasta and the vegan MInestrone was a big hit. Would definitely return.

    Upon arriving at the restaurant on-time for our reservation the hostess asked who was first in line, which happened to be us so I informed the hostess we were first. She ignored me and seated someone behind us then came back for us later. I felt ignored and less important than other customers. We happen to be a same-sex couple so being treated unfairly is a bit of a sore spot for us. The food was good and we like the restaurant (even though our appetizer took 45 minutes, though our server was kind and apologetic). We won't be coming back though due to the rude hostess.

    Upon arriving, we were greeted by several servers and they asked us to wait, but only for a few minutes. When we were seated, our server approached our table and introduced herself, she was fantastic! She was polite and super friendly and would keep coming to our table to make sure we were being looked after. I'm not overly comfortable with ordering Italian so she went over some of the menu items that stood out to me. The food itself was okay, as mentioned, I'm not the most Italian savvy when it comes to food. The ambiance was great! Romantic, not quiet but that's okay, we were happy.

    LiviaM
    Dined on 1/9/2014
    Cozy, laid back, atmosphere in the dining room yet still buzzing and lively. Friendly, efficient service. Not a surly staff-member anywhere; none of the cloying, ingratiating types either. Food was simply prepared. Fresh, with an authentic, homemade and traditional ring. Enough of a variation on the themes to avoid cliche territory and provide a fresh interpretation. Offering is geared towards comforting familiarity and for the unpretentious diner - as I like it. A high recommendation, particularly when you factor in ease of access by subway or car (lots of Green P parking nearby).

    We've been here several times and enjoyed it very much, but New Year's was either not a great night for the kitchen or something has really changed overall. We ordered an appetizer and a main from the specials menu and both were disappointing compared to items on the regular menu. We decided to lower our expectations, it being New Year's, but aren't likely to return based on the food alone. Servers aren't overly welcoming, and correct your pronunciation if you get it wrong, which after a while gets irritating.

    A very good neighbourhood restaurant. But our server could not speak English very well, and she seemed disinterested. She took away the tea prematurely and then charged for the replacement. Her limited language skills made it too difficult to argue but it was annoying. Especially as she seemed not to care that she had taken away the tea. We will go back as we like the food and ambience. But restaurants should not hire people who cannot speak English.
