Ranked #203 of 1,969 Restaurants in Tampa
Price range: $7 - $20
Cuisines: Pizza
Good for: Families with children
Description: Wanting a cozy place to enjoy a cold beer and a really good pizza, My husband & I opened the original Cappy's while we were still in college. That was almost 19 years ago. Since then, we have been blessed with a fantastic staff- some of whom have moved on to open their own partnership Cappy's stores! With locations in South Tampa (the original), Seminole Heights, St Pete, Brandon, Tampa Palms and Cedar Rapids, Iowa (I know, but it is my home town) we strive to maintain a relaxed, homey atmosphere. We specialize in pizza, but we do serve a mean greek salad, breadsticks and cheesebread. Our philosophy is to keep it simple, and excel in what we do best- which is pizza. We do, however, pride ourselves with an extensive micro/import beer selection. So, come join us for a delicious pie and maybe a beer that you've never heard of. Oh, and bring the kiddos- we are family friendly!

I have been to Cappy's 3 times now. The first time I enjoyed the experience so I wanted to go back. The next two times were MAJOR disappointments. This had nothing to do with the food as I only got to try the food once. Why? Because even though they post hours, they don't actually stay open those hours. Last... More

Their Extra cheese pizza is So gooey, greasy and delicious! Featuring a nice, thin crust. Love the atmosphere & trivial pursuit cards. Cash only.

Cappy's makes excellent pizza & salad. Their deep dish rivals Lou Malnati's Pizza in Chicago. Why Cappy's is Awesome... ~ The deep dish pizzas have excellent flavor. The crust is crispy & each layer has its own distinctive flavor. The regular pizza is delicious too. ~ The atmosphere is fun. The menus are on old record covers. There is a... More

Fresh made thick or thin crust pizza made fresh and cooked to order. None better. Greek salad is authentic. Large selection of craft beers and hard to find sodas in a help yourself fridge. Friendly servers in this unique family run converted bungalow. Great pizza and salad. Bring your wallet, cash only.

This is the best deep dish pizza I've ever had, and I'm usually a thin crust kind of guy, I have been there in many ocasions for the Chicago style pizza which my girlfriend loves. The only thing they should take to attention is to accept credit cards its a cash only place.

I am on a mission to find decent Pizza in Tampa. We were referred here …. not so much. The pizza base was perfect and crispy just how I like it - but the toppings were awful and insipid. They basically make cheese pizza and then just throw ham & pineapple (our choice) on top. So when you pick it... More

Went to Cappy's based on recommendation from a good friend. Turned out to be really good. We tried one New York and one Chicago just to get a good sampling of both styles. We especially liked the deep dish. We were a little bit leery of the thick tomato sauce on top at first, but it tasted just fine. Have... More

OBNOXIOUS waitress. Wouldn't ever go back. My friend got a free pizza certificate for moving here-- worst mistake to go there. Gourmet Pizza Company on Armenia Ave is Amazing. Cappyy's is horrible people, worst attitude. Said no Chicago pizza for you. Greek salad was disgusting. Didn't listen to other people's reviews. My BAD

Food was great, super nice waitress but service fell short only because there were only 2 for the entire restaurant. Not so friendly guy behind bar gave us some attitude when we were trying to pay so we could leave. Overall it was good just a bit of conflict seems to have spoiled meal though.

This place is really great, it has a cool atmosphere and its a nice place to come. The pizza is also good, I enjoy the deep dish or "Chicago style" pizza the best. There NY style pizza is just okay for me. It is def some of the best pizza that I have had in Tampa.
