I was trying to find a decent restaurant for dinner in the area and read good things about capo. The restaurant is located on the 5th for of a rather deserted mall (no open shops at all) and is accessed through a lounge / bar like area. The restaurant manager was a very nice guy and suggested a nice by-the-glass wine to go with my pizza. Unfortunately, said pizza was not very good (sorry, Giorgio!)
One major problem with the pizza (beef carpaccio, mushroom, parmesan and rucola) was a faint burnt oil smell – the small you’d get from heating up an oily oven that needed a good scrub. Not the most pleasant smell to go with a pizza. Another problem was that the pizza was a bit undercooked and has yet to form the nice slightly burnt flavour for the crust – which was somewhat soggy.
The appetizer I had was mixed. The burrata was nice enough and the cherry tomato couldn’t really go wrong, but the rockets were significantly over-seasoned and was very salty, to the point that it had to be left unfinished.
Maybe their steaks and seafood would be better, but I definitely won’t be having their pizza again!
