Having been referred to the restaurant by a colleague whose opinion I respect, my expectations were high...so on a very blustery Saturday night our party of 8 were warmly greeted at the door by our host and owner, Aldo. The restaurant is located in a rather insalubrious part of town, but we experienced no problems and parking was easy to find. The food was outstanding. The starters were slightly higher priced than expected, but worth every cent ! They were original, fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. The mains were comparatively cheap, but just as delicious. For dessert we tried the tiramisu (fantastic), semifreddo (excellent), and an interesting 600 year old recipe of jasmine ice-cream. The wines were reasonably priced and the service efficient. Overall, it was a great dining experience, and Il Cappero is a very welcome addition to the rather jaded selection of Italian restaurants in Cape Town.
