Great food. We had some qualit Italian wine to go with it. It was my husband's birthday and he had his dessert served with a little candle in it. Very nice. We also had some complementary liquor to finish the meal off. We ate outside which was ideal as it was a muggy night. Good friendly service too.

A delicious lunch; a shared starter of cured meats and cheeses served with rustic bread, olives and oil and balsamic and then two generous bowls of pasta.

Bravo! The standard of cooking is greatly improved and the portions are much more generous than I remember.

Had fabulous lunch here when visiting the Tate Modern. It’s tucked around the back and was one of the very few places open for food. Lovely staff, not fussy but felt special. Large portions and they were happy for us to share. Proper Italian food in a friendly, relaxed, clean atmosphere.

This was our second visit to Capricci, and the food was as outstanding as before. All three of us had superb meals; everything was excellent, especially the main courses, the house wine and the coffee. Perhaps the desserts could have been rather more special, but these are difficult times and we guessed that there had been slight compromises in this area due to the limited number of customers. We ate outside so were mercifully free from any piped music; we cannot comment on piped music inside the restaurant but sincerely hope that they know better than to pollute the atmosphere with unwelcome music.

Capricci continues to serve amazing food and the possibility to chose wine from the display is a real plus for me.

I felt the pasta dishes were a bit over truffled. The tortellini amazing the tagliatelle outstanding but the Cacio e Pepe with truffles just didn’t work for me.

I’ll be back and I’m just grateful I don’t live nearby or I’d overuse it and be bored with it.

We love to eat here and wish there was somewhere like it where we live.( We only come to London two or three times a year.) The service is swift and friendly and the food is delicious. We come before going to the Globe and like that we are able to eat early and talk without competing with over amplified music.

Capricci is a real taste of Italy. They follow the great Italian tradition of producing excellent food by selecting first class ingredients. The wine list is reasonably priced. Sitting in what feels like a shop takes a moment to get used to but quickly becomes part of the fun. Staff are knowledgeable and enthusiastic without being over attentive.

Pasta dishes were excellent. Service was very good. They have a large selection of wine too. The lemon cake dessert was not good / very dry, but we did not complain, so in fairness, we should have asked for something else. Overall it was very good and we would recommend to others for a couples night out.

*Not Good*. Some of the dishes were great, but others were outright inedible. If you can’t afford to take the risk of an inedible meal, this is not the place for you.

Excellent authentic Italian food. Service friendly, helpful and efficient. A little cramped but this didn't detract from the dining experience as it was compensated by the first class food. Menu isn't too large or complicated which is always a good sign and proved to be excellent. The Bacalao with broccoli was delicious, as was the pasta with duck ragu. Great choice for an enjoyable meal.

This is the first Italian restaurant I have ever visited (in the UK or in Italy) at which the service was not friendly. The men serving seemed totally indifferent to their customers.

The food was very good, but overpriced for what it is, and the wine is priced extortionately. Next time I'll go to Carluccio's around the corner, where the food is almost as good and the bill is about half the price of Capricci's.

This is a lovely small enoteca with an authentic Italian ambiance and friendly staff in an excellent location behind the Tate Modern. All ingredients and the pasta are fresh, and the wine list is excellent. So what could go wrong? The chef doesn’t seem to know how to put the ingredients together. Prawns with cheese?! Vinegary flavourless mushrooms, too salty gorgonzola sauce. Rubbery pasta. Undercooked guanciale is just gristly lumps of fat. For half the price I would be sending private feedback, but this was nearly £40 per person.

Restaurant chose NOT to tell me before sitting down to a business lunch that its credit card machine doesn't work. Only when the bill was produced restaurant told me that it'd only accept cash and that there's an ATM machine a block away. Luckily I had cash. If I didn't, I was to run out to a cash machine to get cash and run back leaving my clients sitting there waiting for me to return with cash. Extremely inconsiderate.

Responded on 11 October 2019

Dear Ken, Unfortunately the card machine network went down during service and we told you as soon as we figured it out. Therefore I don't think you should write such a review for a network problem which happened to hundreds of restaurant at the same time and which is usually extremely rare.
