Tried this reopened restuarant around the holidays and was disappointed. Clearly, they were not ready for a crowd, food was mediore at best and not hot. The service was decent but they did not have it all together.

Capellini's has re-opened and it is fantastic! Four of us went out Friday night and every aspect was great. Service was prompt and consistently courteous. Wine was superb. Appetizer of margarita pizza was very tasty, followed by a fresh and impressive cappers salad. The chicken parmesan was incredibly flavorful and the penne primavera was outstanding. Everything we ordered was so... More

I love Italian food and was not disappointed by Capellini. We had a business dinner with a lot of variety in starters and main dishes. I had Manicotti and it was splendid. Everyone else also enjoyed theirs! Although not a wine drinker my colleagues confirmed the wine list was good. In summary, excellent food, selection and service.

I ate lunch here with my husband and a friend who lives in San Mateo and recommended this restaurant. Wow. As soon as we walked in the door I had a feeling we were somewhere special. The interior is nicely done and has a warm feeling. Service was attentive but not intrusive. The food was incredibly good. The pizza was... More

Capellini is a wonderful cross between the local italian place and a modern Tuscan restaurant. Wonderful service, great menu... Randy

My girl friend and I entered the restaurant a little before 21h00, they politely addressed us, "A table for two?" and I replied, "No, we're 3, someone else is on their way"... They immediately informed me that "the kitchen would be closing shortly and that my friend might not be able to order." That was OK, because he had already... More

Mezzanine was a bit cramped (we showed up with more than we reserved) but the food and staff were excellent. Choice and price range was excellent - top notch quality for any occasion. They were great to work with and made us feel like old friends.

Nice atmosphere, good service. Calzones are excellent (like NY). Eggplant parmagiana-like dish is great too. most things we've tried are solid.
