From the time you arrive through dessert, Chef Dino and his staff make this an amazing experience! The food is incredibly delicious. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The ambiance is warm and elegant; you'll feel like you've walked off the California coast into Italy. The chef came to each table (individually) to greet his customers... More

After a very and I mean very disappointing experience with food and service, I wrote to the owner and told him I wanted to share my experience in the event he would make recommendations to his staff. To my surprise he wrote back extolling his superior restaurants and defending everything without addressing the situation. He chastised me for having the... More

My ½ Italian husband is very picky and loves this place. We have eaten here for years. Jose is the best waiter, but all the staff is great. Dino, the owner, also has two other eateries.....Mona Lisa and Black Trumpet. My fav dish is the chicken with pasta, onions, artichoke hearts in a light creamy sauce. Good Minestrone too. Good...

Nice table linens, full bar and open kitchen area. Capone's mrade it known they are there to please the customer. Salads and panini were our choice for... More

First time eating here. Nice atmosphere, comfortable booth and nice placesetting. Our table opted to share a Caesar salad and fried Calamari to start. The Calamari was lightly battered, well seasoned and tender. Ample portion. Caesar salad was unremarkable. I opted to try one of the ala carte meatballs, which was about the size of a baseball and served in... More

Started with happy hour at the bar and had the sausage pizza. The thin crust is outstanding. Coctails were on special and make sure you order the sangria - it is one of the best!! We ordered the Chicken Piccata, the pasta special, and the lasagna. Love the bread that they are very generous with!! The servings are plentiful and... More

Capone's Cucina is anything but criminal! This one-of-kind is no cookie cutter, chain Italian restaurant but a charming, cozy eatery with outstanding entres and appetizers and delicious desserts. Plus the extensive wine collection was impressive. The staff was very personable and treated us well; the family atmosphere was noticeable right away. We hope to go back someday since we live...

I love this place for a weeknight dinner for so many reasons! I had always passed it thinking it was in such a strange spot and wondered what it was like inside. Finally, I decided to put an end to the mystery. The first thing I noticed when I went for the first time was the owner, Dino, walking around... More
