Didn’t think you could make bad pizza. But, Capishe on Moorehead figured out how. Received my pizza through delivery. I ordered the Americana pepperoni. The pizza was not made with the ingredients the menu described. It had no Buffalo mozzarella, fresh basil or fresh garlic....It did come with the pepperoni. I added sausage and mushrooms to it. There were maybe 3 pieces of sausage crumbles on the pizza. The other ingredients looked like somebody just threw them on any which way. Heavy in parts and nothing in others. I ordered it on a Sunday. The pizza arrived and I immediately called to complain about the order I received. The manager on duty (Albert as I was told) was supposed to return my call after I was offered to have a credit of 2 toppings for my next pizza order that I refused because the pizza was literally missing half the ingredients that made it that particular pizza. He never returned my call. I then reached out to them via email with a picture of the pizza. Someone claiming to be the owner (although would never give me their name) responded on Monday telling me that he needed to wait to talk to the chef and he wouldn’t be in til Wednesday. Really????? How does that change things?? I asked for his name multiple times and did not receive it until I called and asked for the owners name. Bruce is what I was told. The correspondence with “Bruce” ended with him asking me “what I wanted to do”????? Seriously Bruce??? You’re the owner of a business and can’t handle a simple situation and are asking your customer how YOU should handle it. I realized that talking to this simpleton was going to get me nowhere. I then went straight to Grubhub and requested a refund. It was given to me instantly. DO NOT BELIEVE THE REVIEWS!!!! This is a perfect example of a business that pays for reviews. Buyer beware!!! But, utilize Grubhub refund policy if you need to with these people since they can’t seem to do much right. From either the back of the house or the front.More

we got 2 pizzas last weekend to go one large and one medium. The problem with brick oven pizza its all about timing. If its in for 40 seconds too short or long it comes out not right. Both pizzas were soggy with a slightly...charred crust on outside but crust was not chewy at all. You know how when you find a good pizza you want to eat the extra slice. And the slices are not big. Well we did not want to and no one wanted to take leftovers . The sauce, crust, and cheese was not all blended together and cheese just falls right off. They dont have calzones or stombolis. Would never go back.More

Had this restaurant on our list of places to eat. I’m glad we stopped by, the food was amazing. We had the Italian salad, parmesan wings (ordered the plain though- too hungry to send them back) and 2 individual pizzas. As I type this review,...I am still thinking about the salad - I want one now. The parmesan garlic wings were not like anything I’ve had before and that is a good thing. The pizza was enough for more than one meal, so I get to enjoy it again tomorrow. I will definitely visit again. Can’t wait!More

Luckily for us, we stumbled upon Capishe while looking for a place to eat lunch. Super clean and modern place. The wonderful smells from the ovens fill the restaurant. You order at the counter and they bring out your food. Everything we ordered was fresh...and so delicious. The pizza was amazing as was the chicken parmiggiano sandwich (more like a calzone) with side salad and sauce. Their seared chicken salad was also fantastic. Service was very friendly and prices were great. Highly recommended!More

We went here for lunch, based on a recommendation from our son, and are glad we did. The salads are large and very tasty. The only thing I’d do differently is ask for the dressing on the side, because I wouldn’t use as much. The...Italian sandwich is also excellent. Lunch for three with drinks was only $35.More

I had a small salad and the small plate meatballs. Wow. Salad was super fresh, cheese freshly grated. My husband had the grilled chicken salad. Chicken was perfect. Great lunch. Real authentic Italian. Definitely coming back. We didn't try the gelato but it looked awesome!...Cannolli did too! You go through the cashier, they give you a number and the servers bring it to you. Open kitchen. Great seating both inside and out.More

We came to capishe after seeing the Ninja Turtles uptown at an event, so we figured the only way to cap that off was with a pizza. Capishe offers brick oven fired pizza, and it's truly done right. We ordered the one with the italian...sausage and sweet peppers (can't remember the name on the menu), but it was excellent. I believe the pizza was a tad pricey at $18 for a 15 inch, but it was enough for 2 people to split, so $9 a person isn't terrible, and the pizza was really good. The kids split a 10 inch cheese pizza for $8, so not too bad there either. I really liked capishe, and thought compared to their competition (Inizio is the first to come to mind), they are better on your wallet.More

We randomly chose this restaurant for dinner during a stopover in Charlotte. I can't say it was the best pizza i've ever had, but it was good and the service was very quick. I'd go back.

We visited this restaurant for dinner. It is very informal and a bit noisy. They offer pizza and several Italian dishes All are moderately priced. When you arrive, you wait on a line to place your order. Once placed and paid for, you are given...a number to place on a table. When your order is ready, your meal is delivered to your table In one corner, there is a bar to buy wine by the glass or by the bottle. They also offer beer by the bottle (12 oz for $5), or on tap (16 oz for $5). Food was decent, pizza was good, and delivered in a reasonable time frame. The atmosphere was socially open. This is not a fancy place, but is comfortable. Very enjoyable!More

I've been here 5 times. I enjoyed trip #2 and trip #3 very much. Here's my take on my five visits: #1: Both of us got pizza, but it was not very hot; in fact it was cold before I was halfway done with my...personal size pizza. Owner took care of us at bar. He is very friendly and proud of his establishment. #2: Got the pizza again. Served hot this time. It was very good. #3: Tried the pasta. It was great. Only complaint is the number of gnats flying around the bar area while we ate. Food great, environment (for the first time) disappointing. #4: Weeknight visit. Got pizza. It was burnt and pretty disgusting. #5: Weeknight visit. We both got pasta (different kinds). The pasta was incredibly undercooked for both of us. Worse on the linguine than the san lorenzo. My conclusion: After visits 2 and 3 I was telling people to go to this restaurant and try their food because it was great. Then I had those two weeknight visits and walked out feeling as though I wasted my money. The owner wants a 5-star restaurant and to serve food at fair prices. I appreciate that. But I don't want to gamble with my money (will the food be great or terrible today?). I know he is capable of serving great pizza and great pasta. However, it isn't happening with every order. I hope Capishe reads this and makes adjustments. I may give them one more shot after some time passes and hopefully they work out these problems. Meanwhile, I'm going to stop recommending them to friends because I don't want to ruin my friends' meal on my recommendation!More

We had the margarita pizza and the San Lorenzo pizza. They had such a good taste and composition. The crust is very thin so you will have to fold it over to pick it up but it is very good. Make sure to add piquant...peppers to your pizza. They are spicy sweet and so good.More
