The food was delicious! We started with fritto di calamari - it just melted in my mouth. I tried the rainbow trout and it was SO good. My husband had a baby shrimp pasta with pistacchio pesto. We also had a margherita pizza to share which was delicious. So simple but so good - it wasn’t too salty at all. We had eaten so much that we didn’t have any room for dessert but I wish I had tried some

Overall we liked the restaurant.

My food was amazing: I had the trout and Caesar salad. That was probably one of the best Caesar salads I’ve had. My boyfriend was less enamoured with his meal - he felt his pizza was bland but the meatballs were good. The panacotta was amazing. Unfortunately we had pretty bad service from the server. We may come again because the location and food overall were good.

Ordered one of their pizzas with prosciutto and arugula. The crust was soggy and hard to cut. Barely ate a third of it.
They did not have coffee cream just milk. Coffee offered was espresso only. Dessert was good as well the service.

Best restaurant around Yonge and St Clair. While other, similarily long-standing eateries nearby are closing down, Capo continues to be vibrant and full. Bravo!

Great food. Great attentive and friendly staff. Nice and cosy but could get a little loud when it's busy. A little on the pricier side which limits us to visiting for special occasions only. Recommend making reservations ahead of time.

I'm not sure if this is a coincidence because I've never had the steaks here and as far as I know, it's not considered a steak place, but I decided to give it a try. I ordered my steak rear, expecting medium-rare. What I got was a perfectly grilled "Pittsburgh-style" rear steak and arguably one of THE BEST I've had in Toronto so far. I'll have the steak again next time I revisit them to see if lighting strikes twice.

I won’t be able to talk about the food experience because we didn’t have any. Went there on boxing day with my son. We ordered some appetizers and my son ordered a pizza, that’s why I chose to go there because he wanted a pizza.
After our orders taken the waitress came back and said their pizza oven was not hot yet and it would take 45 minutes. Then the manager came and explained that since the restaurant was closed the day before it was taking longer to heat. That is a very bad excuse since this restaurant prides itself to be around for long time; I mean don’t you kind of expect them to know this and be more organized? Especially when half of the menu items are pizza.
Or at least couldn’t they call us to let us know the situation as a courtesy.
The manager acted as this was very normal and didn’t even try to make a gesture. Very disappointed, won’t be going back. We left and went to Terroni’s in the neighbourhood and no surprises there, everything was great as usual.

The pizza was great; the pasta was tasty, though a bit salty. Staff are very friendly. It is a tight squeeze inside, but there is a cozy feel.

Delicious dining experience, overall! Definitely will return to try out other menu items including the pizza which we were told is absolutely amazing. Our server, Jessica, was delightful. She was friendly, helpful and very professional. Service was very prompt. Food was delicious - we both had pasta. The price was a bit high but reasonable. (2 pasta dishes,a salad,and 2 glasses of Prosecco about $100). Portions were just right. It was a busy Friday night. Reservations were helpful. Judging by the patrons’ faces, we picked a perfect spot for our friends get together. Looking forward to visit in the near future.

This is a great spot, as casual as a bistro with the food and wine selection of fine dining. The caesar salad is outstanding, as is the calami, by themselves both reasons to return. Great service by a helpful, fun server.

The wine in this restaurant is only Italian and generally far too expensive if you come for a pizza or pasta. Two of our party of 5 did not like their pasta dish.

Enjoyed dining at this restaurant and will definitely go back. The waiter was great. He was very accommodating. Everything he suggested we tried And we enjoyed everything. One of the specials that night was a steak for 2 on a board with potatoes, mushrooms and rapini. It was delicious. One of the guests in our party of 4 wanted her portion of the steak a little more done. They gladly took it back and cooked it a little more for her. Great experience all around.

Had an editor from NYC in, for TIFF, so took him and companion to dinner at Capo. His second time - he was my guest last year - and he raved about the place again, and said he could see why it was my favorite restaurant in Toronto. I think it's the friendly and accommodating staff that is the signature for this fine eatery, from those who seated us, worked the bar and then waited on our table. Busy night, as Tues' is half-price wine bottles, but fed in a decent time and food was delicious.
