One of the best pizza in town – have been there many time – always reliable. Pasta also great.
Pleasant décor. Separate non-smoking section.
Decent and well prized house wine (terra Romana).
Pleasant outdoor section in Summer.
But, Meats, starters and desert are only OKish, not at the 5star level of the pizza/pasta.

One of my compulsory stops when I am traveling to Bucharest is Capricciosa.
The best Italian food in Romania is served there. The place looks like very Italian: simple, unsophisticated, the only emphasis is on their food: always served to perfection: antipasti, pizza, pasta, meat; whatever you choose is just great.
My favourite:
Crostini fegatini di pollo e porcini;
Ravioli di magro, burro, salvie e parmigiano;
Filetto capricciosa.
Prices are very good too.

Most of the time the food is really good, especially from the daily list. the other food is good as well.
However one day they had run out of the "pene" I was looking for and the food they replaced it with was quite poor.
All in all a good meal and live athmosphere.
Thank you for the NON-smoking room!!!!!!

I have a good friend of mine who 'appears' to only eat at this place........having said that, it is excellent; But please book.......it is full, full, full, everyday! The staff are ver pleasant and all speak good English. The emphasis is Italian but it is very good Italian and very varied. I have been to this place, several dozen times and would rank it one of Bucharest's top-ten. The other good thing is that it is close to the 2 main airports so you could always have an early lunch/dinner and then catch you flight as you would not have to worry too much about crossing town to get to the airport. Highly recommended.
