This is a cute little italian spot. Having lived in Italy for a couple of years, I very much appreciated the good, homestyle food and modern italian music. Service was just ok, but I would go back.

This small restaurant has great food and the biggest calzones I have ever seen! Although this is a little hole-in-the-wall, the food is delicious and service can't be beat.

The salmon piccata and tiramisu were top notch. Service very friendly and fast. Absolutely loved the music which were popular American golden oldies sung in Italian..perfect hybrid of the Italian restaurant in a funky beach zone.

Service is great and they seem to be very willing to accommodate modifications and substitutions. Has a family-run feel to it. Solid Italian food with large portions for chicken... Pasta is good for an American place making Italian food. it is half block from the beach and has that "beach neighborhood" feel and look to it. Inside by their little... More

The most relaxed good food place in Ventura, but what else only steps from the beach! Lousy wine list, but who cares as I like teeth strainers with my pasta. Great prices, outstanding service. Good food. Facebook.com/ljmartinauthor

It's too bad Cappelletti's is located in the rundown Pierpont area, because the chef merits a better venue. The atmosphere is bland, but the pizzas are the best in town if you like real thin-crust Italian fare. Get take-out service and enjoy the goodness at home!

Hot bread was served upon seating with Olive oil and balsamic. They served it mixed together on the plate which was bad as it had too much vinegar. I had the caprese panini which was what i expected - tasty. My husband had pasta with proscutto and a cream sauce. He said it was okay. It was fine for a... More

We went for lunch and surprisingly they were serving mexican food along the italian, so I chose between the mexican item and my wife between the italian menu. I loved my quesadilla, but my wife didn't like her pasta. We'll come back for more mexican food.

Each Fall we visit Ventura and I look forward to dinner at Cappelletti's. We always had good meals and service. This time, only one of us was happy. My friends were served their appetizers, and I sat and waited for mine. We spoke up and found out the my appetizer (mussels) was fired up with the main courses. When the... More

My family and I rented a beach house for a week and we ate here 6-7 times over the week. The pizza is terrific. The pasta dishes were enjoyed by everyone that tried them. I ate the calamari like 4 times and I have been craving it all week. The staff were extremely noice and friendly, it turned into our... More
