“Perfect Pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

How did I find perfect NYstyle, thin, crispy crust pizza in St. Petersburg,FL? just lucky? actually, the place is so cool looking we had our eyes on it for a few trips...so glad we stopped! Great staff and quaint Bungalow style old house add to the charm.
The salads are huge. Plan to share.
Fun and funky.
Loved it.

“The Spot for Deep Dish, NY Style, and More”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Located in a renovated single family home in the Grand Central District of St. Pete, Cappy's is a pure delight. Yes, the menu is simple. However, the taste, flavors, and ambiance are extraordinary. Cappy's menus are printed from old LP record covers and the interior maintains a free-spirited feel that is warm and inviting. Because of St. Pete's amazing weather, the patio seating is an outstanding option, and like many St. Pete establishments, leashed dogs are permitted on the patio. Cappy's has some of the finest Chicago deep dish pie south of the Windy City. It's made with a cornmeal crust and perfectly finished with generous portions of mozzarella and a tangy pizza sauce. The New York style pizzas are equally delicious, the perfect combination of a crunchy outside, soft inside that you'd expect in a thin crust. The salads and breadsticks/cheesesticks make for great appetizers, and Cappy's has a great collection of eclectic beer options housed in a serve-yourself refrigerator near the kitchen. Overall, whether you're a local or a tourist, you'll be quite glad you added a stop at Cappy's to your day.

I haven't had a pizza this good in a long time: fresh ingredients and a perfect crust.

Friendly, welcoming, attentive staff. Cool atmosphere, nice experience.

Will return within a month, would definitely recommend.

“Glad it is in Historic Kenwood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

If you love pizza you will be glad this place is in your neighborhood. They are not open late, but then many places close around the same time. It is a little out of the main restaurant area of the Grand Central District, but certainly worth finding. Make it a destination. The pizza is really good, and that is what it's all about. Worth a try.
