“Another Outstanding Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2011

Capuano's has become my very favorite Italian restaurant. The food and service are always consistent. The menu has so many choices it is hard to choose but you can't go wrong with Chicken Parm or Veal Franciese or one of the seafood dishes. My husband ALWAYS gets the Ravioli Frienza that comes with spinach and a pink cream sauce. Tortellina Diana is also awesome. Then there are always a variety of specials. The food is plentiful, delicious and the service is outstanding. What is really great is that as a BYOB, the bill is always very reasonable. We just love this place.

“Low expectations, high results”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2011

Was invited by friends, didn't really think it was going to be anything special, but everything from calamari to dessert was good. The sauce was really good. I expected it to be more of a "pizza" type food, but completely satisfied. Cheap too.

“Great italian”

This our go to place for a good Italian meal. I find the food very good and reasonable. Some of the staff is a little off with Spanish but that is not a problem for us. Always enjoy it.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2011

Capuano's on Clarcksville Road is one of the best restaurants in the Princeton area. .Restaurants in Princeton are pricey and average. Capuano's is a staple restaurant in Princeton Junction, not far from Princeton, and the food is always delicious. This restaurant was bought up about 20 years ago by Ecuatorian brothers who are the chefs who turned this restaurant into a gourmet italian restaurant. The specials are always superb with fresh ingredients great meats and their seafood plates are always fantastic. It is not cheap but you know you are getting quality ingredients. The service is also excellent. The fact that most of the people that work there are Spanish it is because it is a family business. Their catering is also excellent. I highly recommend it. Just make sure you go to the Capuano's on Clarksville Road you won't regret it.

“Good Pizza”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2010

We've eaten here countless times. It's a neighborhood place serving mostly locals. We like the pizza -- particularly the deep dish veggie special for about $20.

The restaurant is passable foodwise but the quality has gone downhill ever since they converted almost exclusively to a Spanish speaking staff instead of family. If the Immigration Service ever dropped in for a meal the kitchen staff would scatter like rats.
