Italian
Da Capo contemporary interpretations of Italian classics are always made to order from scratch. Our seasonal menu highlights the quality of the freshest ingredients from local farms and our New York Style thin crust pizza is already a favorite all over Litchfield County. The casual setting and inviting atmosphere created by the real tin ceilings, exposed brick, soft lighting and a taste from the past brought to you by the local historical photos makes da Capo a favorite destination for a delicious dining experience. In the summer months, relax in our outdoor patio and experience a little bit of the Mediterranean lifestyle. Da Capo brings to Connecticut a recipe found in Little Italy in the early 1900's: "Authentic New York Style Thin Crust Pizza". Almost a century later Da Capo proudly presents our famous " Old World" family recipe, along with classic family style dining.

The service was very slow and inattentive to start and then our food began to come to the table. The toscana salad was covered with polenta croutons that were cold, soggy and dripping oil which required removing them from the salad immediately. The haddock dish I had was very oily, edible but not enjoyable. We were. very disappointed as we have eaten at Da Capo in Avon many times and find their food much better but tried Litchfield due to the management change and most of the quality employees leaving the Avon restaurant.
All in all I think Da Capo has lost our family as customers and we will need to find a new weekly go to restaurant.

Probably the worst food i have ever eaten in a restaurant with an inexperienced waitress who didn’t even know how to open a bottle of wine.

My family always enjoys the great choices of food offered at a reasonable price.
At our last dinner there, the salmon was cooked to perfection
& the chicken parmigiana was tasty as well.

The daCapo Chips were terrific as always! We tried the Toscano salads (one with shrimp and one with chicken) and they were great - I would eat it every day if I could! There was a mistake in our orders when they were brought to our table but the waitress was so helpful and did her best to make sure it was corrected. The kitchen actually made a mistake on one of the corrected orders, but we took it anyway and it was delicious. It could have left us with a bad feeling about the place but the waitress was so apologetic and handled it very well so we made the best of it and would definitely go there again.

Great food, great waitress. My boyfriend got the special (lobster ravioli) which was delicious. I got the haddock with root vegetables and gnocchi which was also delicious. Big portions

The food was excellent. All of us had different seafood/pasta entrees and they were very, very good. I really liked the calamari appetizer, too.

I've had the appetizer before, so I knew it was good when we ordered it. An excellent start to what I would call the summer season.

Our server wasn't great, but our table didn't seem to be in his main area.

Recommend Da Capo for their salads and pizza. Have been here many times. This visit was disappointed with server-- we specifically asked for soup to come first, then the salad and then the pizza. But everything came at once.

da Capo is one of our favorite local restaurants. This visit was for my birthday, and I specifically picked da Capo because I wanted the lasagna my mom used to make every year for my birthday dinner. It’s not quite my mom’s lasagna, but it’s damn good! My husband and I each ordered the lasagna, and we had enough leftover for dinner the next night too. We recommend the garlic bread appetizer too!

I highly recommend da Capo because the food is delicious, the service is excellent, and the atmosphere is comfortable but upscale.

Pizza was excellent. My chicken entree was dry and a little over cooked. Service was fine but it we had to leave at 7:00 and did not have an hour plus for dinner. We sat down and ordered immediately, no appetizers, nothing complicated. It still took a long time for the food to come and we were a little stressed at the end. This would be a great place for a leisurely dinner with friends when you have nowhere else to be!

We have been dining at da Capo for many years and the food has never been anything but exceptionally great. Fresh, creative and consistent is what da Capos is all about. The wait staff is always friendly and very attentive without being intrusive. We live over a half hour away but da Capos is always our number 1 go to place
