Classic old skool American Italian restaurant. Relatively small and does a brisk business. Very convenient for eating before the Beach Blanket Babylon show. Nothing fancy, it's what your Italian grandmother would serve at home.

Went to Beach Blanket Babylon and was looking for a good restaurant near the show...Had eaten at Capps before, and decided to go back again...Had a wonderful, family-style Italian meal, and food and service were still very good...Not incredible Italian, but very good, and really convenient...Would eat there again....

I enjoyed my meal at Capp's. I was with a group, and we had a limited menu. I had spaghetti, and it was delicious. The bread was good, too. Some people ordered pork and mashed potatoes, and got pasta over the potatoes. When they asked the waiter just waved them off rudely. I know we were a group, thus makes... More

We ate here after being recommended by our hotel. We were a group (16 people) and were struggling to find somewhere that would take a group at a reasonable price. What a great recommendation - we were warmly welcomed, the food was great (particularly the minestrone soup), they looked after us really well and couldn't have been more hospitable. The... More

We were looking for a restaurant in North Beach near the spot where we saw Beach Blanket Babylon and found Capps Corner just 2 doors away. Had a fabulous family-style meal - something for everyone. Service was excellent and the food was delicious.

Our tour group of 40 dined at Capp's one evening. The tables were waiting and we received a warm welcome when we arrived. The staff did an excellent job of taking our orders and serving everyone promptly. The minestrone soup was tasty, but could have been a littler hotter. The lasagna was good (I've had better, but also had worse).... More

This smalI Italian cafe just a few steps from Club Fugazi serves delicious food family style. I had the chicken cacciatore, which was PERFECT----also a delicious salad and Italian wedding soup. The house red wine was very tasty. Friends with me enjoyed the lasagna and the fresh bread. There is just one restroom for each sex.

Next door to beach blanket Babylon, we went in on the off chance and got a table straight away. Italian food and atmosphere at its best. Well worth the money and cheap for a san fran meal. Filling and tasty. Good service, would go again any time.

We first ate here a few years ago on a business trip, and brought back our family for dinner on our most recent vacation. The minestrone soup appetizer and salad are incredible! The pasta we had was good also (kids had cheese ravioli, dad had shrimp fettucine, and mom had spaghetti and meatballs). They have a decent wine list too... More

With limited options due to it being Easter Sunday we asked a local for a suggestion. It was early for dinner and we were catching up with friends. We were offered a table where we had some drinks before ordering. (Great margarita). At no time did we feel rushed and pressured to eat and move on. After a few more... More
