This unassuming restaurant is part of a small hotel but the food and ambience is well worth dragging yourself off the busy main street at Camps Bay. Good food, reasonable wine and a pleasant evening at very reasonable prices. We passed a good 3 hours here chatting with neighbouring tables and having a good, laid back time.

WE invited guests . The pasta was not we we expected. The noodles had not been al dente and the taste was more or less tasteless. The Fiorentina steak we ordered medium was dry. But nevertheless we like the owners and the place.
The service was poor !!!

This restaurant is a gem and as all the precious things, you have to be lucky to find it! It's not so easy to find it, but wen you'll get there, it will be worthy. I have had Pasta with Langoustine (absolutely delicious) and the dessert (sicilian cannoli, wonderful!!!). I'm Italian and I'm not used to have dinner in Italian restaurant abroad, but this restaurant really made me remember some good recipes and taste of Italy. Furthermore, the chef is truly Italian and the owner is really nice to you, great atmosphere. To be visited!!!!

Firstly there seems to be confusion on the website (and in reviews) as to whether this restaurant is in CBD or Camps Bay, but I visited the latter.......and what a huge disappointment. Possibly the worst Italian/Sicilian food I have ever eaten, and I'm sure any self respecting Italian/Sicilian would be horrified that these was being passed off as their national dishes. One thousand and one ways with aubergine in the microwave would be the best way to describe it. Tasteless, bland, and just plain lazy cooking......these people should not be in the restaurant business.

We've been to Il Cappero four times. Every time we go there we're greeted warmly and service is always amazing!

They serve one of the most authentic and delicious Italian meals in Cape Town!

Perfect for a relaxing and romantic time out in the city.
