Having lived in Italy for an extended period, I enjoy Italian cuisine. Capellini's is basic Italian fare from the coast. I think the dishes are a bit bland, but my wife (British) loves it that way. They have a good selection of different dishes including seafood and regular specials are nice to try. The restaurant is small and friendly, as... More

We visited this restaurant twice.Although the food was good, it did not have us feeling as we would rush back anytime soon. Last visit our son had childs pizza and we had seafood. We were seated near the hostess station. Several people were in and out for take out service. Since the host station was small and full of other... More

I have not eaten here in quite a while because years ago this was THE place to get really good Italian food. I do know that the owners (at the time) had another place in Reading, and then something happened shortly after they sold the one in Reading. One of the Wait staff told me that the Chef (who was...

Capellinis Restaurant is delish! I haven't been there in a while, but when I have been there the food has been great and the service good also. It is a small quaint restaurant. We have done the takeout more than the eat in part. Eggplant parmesan is very good, the skin is left on (not a big fan of the... More

Always fresh seasonal specials, the best fried calamari north of Boston, excellent selection of fish and fresh pasta dishes, great sauce and pizza as well.

Taken here on a cold Sunday for lunch. The restaurant is clean and welcoming, the staff very friendly. The food was very good and good value for money. Would certainly visit again

Such a cute little place in Tewksbury. I believe they serve all three meals but I could be mistaken. I went for lunch with my mom on a day off and we really enjoyed ourselves. Comes with bread before the meal. Wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Decently priced. Good menu selection!

We were here for lunch after Thanksgiving and the place was very busy. Despite this, our service was excellent. The calamari appetizer had just enough heat and was a good blend of tentacles and rings. The Capellini Special (with shrimp) was delicious as well as the lemon chicken and veal piccata.

Cute atmosphere. Food was good. Service was okay. They didn't refill our drinks or even ask if we wanted a refill.

We visited Capellini's on a recent Sunday night. It wasn't horrible, but it wasnt very good. I ordered the eggplant parm and my boyfriend the chicken parm. The sauce was thin, watery, and flavorless....like it was just poured out of a can. For the price we expected far better so its unlikely we will return
