Capp's Corner

Updated 04/09/2013

Fodor's Review

One of North Beach's last family-style trattorias, Capp's is steadfastly old-fashioned. The men at the bar still roll dice for drinks, celebrity photos line the walls, and diners sit elbow-to-elbow at long, oilcloth-covered tables. The fare is packaged in bountiful five-course family-style dinners for $21.50, with pasta dishes like veal tortellini, and the roast lamb a good choice for the main (the tasty osso buco and polenta is $5 more). The food isn't award-winning,

but a meal here won't break the bank either. A three-course option, good for smaller appetites—and smaller budgets ($18.50)—includes minestrone, salad, and choice of pasta (or you can skip the family-style format and get the trio of courses for $15.50). For $3.50 more, you can finish with an order of spumoni. Kids under 10 will be happy with their own menu priced at $13.

Olive Garden is Better!

We had lunch of seafood fettuccine and spaghetti and meat balls. The meatballs were dry. The food was very average. You would do much better going to the Olvie Garden.

Plentiful Food and No Nonsense Service!

The food is great and the atmosphere is fantastic. Not a five star by any means, but a fun place to eat especially after a show at Club Fugazi. Make sure to push in your chair as the waitresses have no problem "assisting" you.
