Been coming to Gloucester for the last 20 years and until today, have regularly gone to Captain Hooks. Home made pita, really good arancini, mouse poop in my salad. That about says it all.

Captain Hooks is a great take out restaurant in Gloucester. The prices are fair and they have all types of Italian, seafood and subs ( aka hero sandwiches). The owners are from Italy and the food is authentic and delicious. There is nothing fancy about...More
