Description: In 1961, Mrs Ofelia inaugurated the first big restaurant in Prato, ‘Il Capriolo’: Tuscan specialities. Exactly 50 years later, and after a short period closed, the restaurant has been reopened and it’s now cared by the great-grandchildren of the ancient founder. Our intent is to maintain the tradition characterizing the Tuscan food, thanks to the big charcoal-burning grill, the wood-burning oven for the pizza, and the research of local supplier for meat and vegetables. In our opinion the past shall be respected but continuously renewed, as well; for this reason in the menu you will also find dishes with modern flavours and a slightly cosmopolitan touch.

Staff was really friendly, food quite (chianina meat & seafood) expensive but tasty.
Weiter so!

The only negative point was a bit tasteless and bleak l'ambiente on
the second floor where we were seated, therefore 4/5 stars.

This restaurant was amazing. The service staff were very friendly even though I could not speak Italian and made me feel comfortable. The food was great with the freshest produce used, making all the difference. There was a mixture of traditional and modern cuisine which catered for everybody. I have eaten here many times when I visited Italy. If you had to try anything, the pizza was the best I've ever tasted. I will always come back here when I visit Italy in the future.
