I am sad to say that we did not have great experience here as I desperately want a tasty Italian restaurant in Georgetown. The staff was not friendly at all. The food was not very flavourful and the restaurant itself was freezing cold. It was very difficult to even try to enjoy any part being so cold. This restaurant needs to be totally revamped.

Desperate for a good Italian restaurant in Georgetown....this is NOT it!!
Prices are reasonable...guess u get what u pay for.
I avoid this place even though it's a 5 minute drive from my house.
Please someone open a real true Italian restaurant here we need one!!

Went for bday celebration, have been here before. Food does not disappoint. Portions are generous the gravy (tomato sauce) here is quite good. Can be a little noisy when younger families are present.

Eggplant parma appetizer was good, nice slices of properly cooked seasoned eggplant covered in flavorful tomato sauce with melted moza on top. Other ap was caesar salad, which was average.

Mains - veal parma with house spegghetti side was fine, lots of gravy on it. other main was fetta alfrado with shrimp, both good sized portions.

lime cheese cake dessert was fresh.

We like supporting the independently owned restaurants rather than the big chains. These restaurants usually have their own unique and sometimes quirky environment that gives rise to distinctive and delicious dishes.

Capina’s did not disappoint. Don’t be put off by the simple exterior and sign – the interior is warm and quaint and the staff is friendly. It’s not unusual to be greeted and seated by the owner himself.

We ordered bruschetta as an appetizer and received eight pieces of oven toasted crusty bread with the tomato salsa served in a separate bowl; very yummy.
My husband had the fettuccini alfredo and I the chicken parmesan, all very delicious. My daughter is partial to the gnocchi in gorgonzola sauce which she orders every time we go. The portions are filling and reasonably priced. Lots of pasta dishes to choose from with some alternate meat dishes.

My only complaint (and not really a complaint) is that on a sultry summer night the restaurant can get quite warm. They don’t turn on the a/c; they just leave the front door open. I just chalk it up to the quirkiness of an indie restaurant. Have an extra glass of red wine or beer and enjoy.
