“reliable time after time”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

We've been going to this place since it opened 13 years ago. Besides a few rough spots the place has stood the test of time.
I have to say, it is reliable and not pretentious.
The service is very quick and the pizza is generally good- we often order take out too.
Perfect for a qucik bite or an impromtu family meal and even for big groups of friends.
My kids like the creamy tortellini, steak salad is good as are all of the pastas and pizzas.
If you like eggplant try the melanzane Sorrentine appetizer or just try a pizza and beer.
Can get loud.
I like the no smoking room- which is not always available in Bucharest.

“excellent pizza and first courses”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

we have been a couple of times in this restaurant located in the Baneasa area. we liked a lot the pizza, that one could define (one of the few in bucharest) original Italian, thin and crispy. also first courses are quite good. We tried tagliolini with burro con tartufo and past with provola and porcini (tagliatelle good, the other was ok). Not worthy of note was the tiramisu. Bill more than adequate and acceptable. We'll return regularly

“Very good for what it is”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

I mean that it not a fancy restaurant, you don't expect the best food in town. it is the restaurant you go when you are very tired to cook at home and you want a simple dish after long working hours. We go often, we know what to expect, we know what to order. Turnaround of tables is fast, people go for a pizza and bear and go home. Still it is value for money, the quality is good and you have a decent meal. Maybe this is why it always crowded. I strongly recommend it for a decent cheap meal.
One problem, non smokers are most probably suffering

“Good fresh food, efficent staff, fair prices”
Reviewed June 11, 2012 via mobile

One of the few restaurants in Bucharest that maintains the same level over the years.
I am eating here for 10 years and nothing changes.
Capriciosa have the best pizza in town, and the meat is ok.
I strongly reccomend it!
