Great restaurant and delicious food. Staff are fanatastic. Not cheap and not prohibitively expensive either. Fab location for the Globe and Tate and a bit quieter than the touristy restaurants along the south bank.
This is exacty the food you might eat in a typical tiny bistro in Italy, far removed from the pasta joints on the High Street - totally authentic, right down to its faults. My advice would be: don't go by the website which paints a picture of superior Italian cuisine. Forgive the under-cooked spaghetti, the bits of shell in the vongole, the oversized starters which bloat you up much too early. - lower your sights and you might even like it a lot.
A great little Italian deli that does good food with a smile.
Great food and service!
Early pre theatre dinner and the restaurant was quiet. Eaten there many times over the past 3 years and food always excellent. Service efficient and friendly
Beautiful food and an excellent selection of wine. Discreet service.
Good food in a small space, probs lay the right way around!
Very friendly atmosphere. Italian original food. Very good.
Excellent but with one small hitch, I told them on arrival that I had a booking, they said showed me to a window bar seat facing away from the restaurant and with no view also very uncomfortable for someone alone. I decided to leave and told the waitress I was not happy as I had ore booked and wasn’t happy with the seat, she then said oh my colleague didn’t realise you had booked and showed meto a nice table that had been reserved for me, after that everything was perfect, service food ambience, they just need to pay a little more attention when greeting people.
This was the second visit as loved first time, disappointing second. Starter - grissini with tiny amount veg, cold soup (which was heated up) & apple pie (which was actually cake)
Small, quirky, we loved the quality and freshness of the ingredients. Italian to the core. 👍
Great food, wine and service. Cosy atmosphere and great wine selection.
homemade Italian food, not another restaurant chain,
very friendly staff
This may have been the best meal I've ever eaten at a restaurant. The quality of the food and wine was outstanding, and well worth paying a little extra for. Service was quick, friendly and unobtrusive. Highly recommended!
Good food and wine, and a quiet, friendly place for a leisurely Sunday lunch.
Without ant doubt the best italian food in London!
Delicious food, great service. Small intimate venue, quiet. Menu has few options but we all found things we wanted.
5 stars excellent food and service was excellent too would highly recommend
The food was lovely, the atmosphere was perfect - relaxed, but not overly so. The service felt a little impersonal at times, but that’s not to say the staff were inattentive; more that they simply let us get on with things, which can actually be quite nice!
There were a few moments, during our lunch, when we thought we were on some TV show, with hidden cameras. We found ourselves wondering if each blunder or pitfall meant that a presenter was about to leap out, telling us it’d all been a comedy.
We arrived 5 or 10mins ahead of our booking. No greeting. I had to get the chef’s attention, he in turn got a waitress’s attention, and so the comedy of errors started.
The menu looked good, a bit over-priced, and with few veggie options, but we were optimistic. Our first mistake.
Three of four of us opted for a pasta with prawns and clams. Nope, there was only one serving left. This was at 1.30pm. Thankfully, we’re friends, so we all compromised, and chose again. It took no fewer than four times of asking, to get some water for the table.
The food was great. Well, no…..what we ordered sounded great. Then the chef told us the oven had broken. No apology, just a taciturn waitress who offered tiny scraps of information, to help us re-order, again. A veggie pasta magically existed, though it hadn’t 20mins’ ago.
When our meals arrived, there were truly lovely. We felt good about staying; we ordered another bottle of wine.
Then the waitress produced a laptop, sat behind us and started working. A manager – perhaps the owner? – turned up and started stock-taking, around us. This, in a very small space. He shouted his counting of products – to the waitress, to the chef? Who knows. We struggled to maintain conversation, between only four of us.
Two ordered dessert, a tiramisu to share. This was grabbed from a fridge next to us, and plonked on the table, in its sad little plastic tub.
So, will we be back? Hmmm, we were pondering on that, as we paid the bill. Then the chef got on the phone and started arguing with a supplier. Maybe it was the oven company.
No-one asked how our meal had been. So, here’s the honest answer: one of you can cook. None of you, however, should be in a job involving customers.
I had a marvellous dinner at Capricci. The food was delicious and good value. The menu is not extensive but that is made up for by the sheer quality of the food they do serve.
Restaurant area is small (only a few tables), but the food is fantastic and in a nice modern setting.
Lovely authentic food, nice atmosphere and good friendly and timely service.
Intend to go here again when we next visit Tate modern
This was my third visit to Capricci, and it’s always good. The food is authentic and high quality and the menu is flexible, whether you want a light lunch or a substantial meal. Service is attentive and knowledgeable. Very good!
Best pasta I have had, and it was eggfree! :)
And very cozy and relaxed atmosphere.
limited but interesting menu and noise level commendably low - hooray! Not that many tables, so glad I reserved the previous day.
A lovely little place for a quiet meal. Food is excellent as is the wine list. Highly recommended
Capricci is probably my favorite Italian restaurant in London. Their menu is always changing allowing a new experience each time and also following seasonal ingredients. The service is always attentive and they value loyal customers. Also the selection of products that they import from Italy is seriously outstanding and worth a look.
Excellent Italian delicatessen and small restaurant. Just next to Tate Modern. Lunchtime pastas are superb
Amazing taste extravaganza! Located back off the main Southwark Rd, this ‘palace of pleasure’ brings a Mediterranean Quality to the dank streets of capitalism. The aroma of fresh, healthy food, full of flavour you can smell as your order arrives with a smile and friendliness that has also greeted you into the establishment. Time is given between courses. The kitchen is at the centrepiece of the restaurant, so you see the masters of wizardry produce their magic. Definitely recommend this restaurant, and I hope you enjoy the experience of it as much as I did/do.
Excellent food and friendly. A tight squeeze but really close to the Tate
We had a delicious meal at Capricci's, with great wine choices and generous portions. The serving staff were friendly and helpful.
Really enjoyed our meal. Good wine list, relaxed ambience. Convenient location for us
Very nice bruschetta on thick pizza type base
Risotto obviously freshly cooked and not precooked and warmed through. Generous main serve.
After dinner coffee very smooth.
Very convenient to theatre venue
I had a starter and pasta. The pasta dish was very tasty. A nice place for a quick bite. There's a lot of competition nearby but well worth a visit.
Very disappointing experience. The menu had little choice.The food was underwhelming . No offer of Parmesan or salt and pepper. The restaurant was cold. Very little atmosphere although we accept it was mid afternoon .
Friendly service, al dente pasta, delicious anchovies. Not a lot of reviews online but we’re glad to have dined here as everything was great!
Good food and service. Setting and facilities basic.
Very good, freshly cooked food and good wine selection.
