    The menu is extensive and offers a vast variety of foods. I have tried many items off the menu and have enjoyed every single one of them. The salad is wonderful...not just the romaine lettuce that most restaurants serve. We only eat at Nuovo Cappetto's when we want Italian food..there is no comparison with other Italian restaurants. We were extremely ecstatic when they reopened.

    I had a business dinner here on Wednesday evening, and albeit it UTEP's graduation, I found the service a bit slow, BUT the food was very good and the waiter was very nice. He even took off a cup of poblano soup that was delicious, simply too spicy for my palate. He did this without us even asking, which I thought was very nice. We will be back!

    High end Italian cuisine in El Paso - highlights wonderful service, excellent Caesar Salad and Cappucino's. Pasta was bland; veal was ok. Great for groups and it was quite crowded and active.

    Although the food was excellent and service was adequate, the fact that I'd specifically made a reservation and the table was not ready upon arrival was a tad disappointing.

    Cappetto's has reopened in a stylish setting in the Kern Place entertainment area. The restaurant is sheik with an open view of the kitchen in the back of the restaurant with an open brick oven used for baking pizza. A rectangular full bar is nestled near the entrance Tables are lined along the windows, and a larger dining area is in the rear portion. White table cloths contrast with a dark interior and has an elegant feel. The menu is extensive and features most of the items that Cappetto's has served for generations, accompanied by a nice wine menu. They've added a few zesty specialties with a dash of Hatch chili pepper for a southwest zing. The waitstaff is superb and tends to your wishes throughout the meal. Bon Apetit!

    Went for brunch. Our frittatas (we had one of each kind) were no such thing. They were just an omelet cooked a different way. My husband's eggs benedict came out cold and had to be sent back. And overall food was slow to come out. Just in general completely unexciting and disappointing and we wished we had gone somewhere else.

    The food and sevice were not up to par with the reviews left. Overcooked pasta, nasty food overall. You can dine a lot better and cheaper at Olive Garden and I dont like Oive Garden.

    Same old comfort food. Bread drenched in garlic margarine. The marinara was deep, complex and flavorful- more of a heavier sauce base. Ordered the breaded mushrooms for appetizer. Unfortunately, they appeared to be from a frozen food manufacturer, not good. Shrimp scampi- anemic little shrimp swimming in butter. Lobster ravioli- soggy and lacking flavor. What is the point of having lobster ravioli if the lobster is unrecognizable?! It is what is is. Our waitress was great - attentive and helpful. A little too loud for a quiet, intimate experience. Too dark for several people to be able read the menu without a light source. Made things interesting, I guess. I was expecting something different with creative and lighter, meals.

    My red hat group met for lunch here. They had our table set up and ready. The House Italian dressing was amazing with the mixed greens salad. So refreshing. Everyone loved their meals. Service was well-timed and very friendly. I definitely will return to try more dishes.

    Not for romantics, but a relaxed ambience that lends itself to an after-show get together. The service was well-timed, attentive, and engaging Our dish-Pizza Primavera-was the BEST! the accompanying dinner salads were a delicious complement Loved the Scripture (Philippians 4:13) inscribed on the wall above the window.! All staff encountered were very friendly! Will be coming back soon to try the other dishes on a fantastic menu!

    We took mom out for her birthday dinner. She suggested the restaurant since I'm from out of town. I didn't know what to expect but I have to say that I was happily surprised. Good food selection, good service, and the food was delicious. I will probably suggest going there again on my next visit.

  • New Years Eve dinner

    Dined on 12/31/2013
    My family and I had been spending our New Years Eve out at the old Capettos for years. This year we weren't sure if we wanted to try the Nuovo Capettos. We thought it would be the same taste we knew but a lot more expensive since they had moved to a trendier area of town but we where pleasantly surprised. Same great food, same great service, and no difference in price just a bit further of a drive for us but we will visit this establishment again. Our group was very pleased and got great compliments on the choice. Thank You.

    The food and service were excellent! It's great for any occasion. Portions are huge so entrees may be split if dining with kids. It is family friendly but also great for a date nigh or adult evening out.
