Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had a very good meal last Saturday night, we had to book and it was very busy and noisy. My partners seafood pasta was excellent as was my veal masala. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

We ate here twice and the food, service and ambience was amazing! The gnocchi before running the half marathon was delicious and set me up for the race. Our group of 14 loved the restaurant and Aaron, Simon and Hannah were fantastic!

For budding front-of-house staff who want to learn the art of attentive but not intrusive service, we suggest you visit Capital who simply do it with excellence. We attended on a public holiday when a surcharge was imposed to cover the extra costs of opening....This was well communicated even before entering the restaurant. So, no problem, we could dine and pay the surcharge or go elsewhere. It's all in the communication and we are glad we stayed to enjoy Capital's hospitality. The food was great, wine list offered good Tasmanian variety, and tables adequately spaced. We observed a wheel-chair patron being accommodated with no problem - although the toilets are upstairs. Street dining (with heaters) is an option and nearby parking in North Hobart is not too much of a problem for dinner service. Highly recommended.More

I would give 6 stars if I could!!! Capitol is Hobart's little gem. Food is amazing and service is unbelievable. We had calamari as tender as never before and the prosciutto croquettes are just mouth watering, I would order them by the dozen! The service...is dedicated, fast and never invasive. The owner, Aron, is the kindest and sweetest person in the world, it's worth to spend a word with him! Just go to Capital, you won't be disappointed!More

We hadn't booked, and were a bit wary when we walked in as it seemed crowded and noisy. The music was loud, and we asked for it to be turned down - it was! We settled in and relaxed, and our order was taken promptly....Variations from the menu such as penne instead of gnocchi were accepted with no problem. The service was very attentive but not intrusive. There was a delay with our mains, and complimentary garlic bread and a top up on my bubbles were offered and accepted. When the food did arrive it was delicious - well worth waiting for. Looking forward to a return visit.More

A drizzly night in Hobart - we were happy to go into the warm cheerful atmosphere. It was a great decision. Service was excellent, and the food likewise. A very enjoyable night with friends. We'll come back. Mercedes and Frederico

Absolutely amazing food and atmosphere, very experienced staff and helpful. Very generous portions provided. We chose the Beef Cheek Gnocchi and the Veal Cotoletta, both were Spectacular. A Must Visit when in North Hobart.

I found their service to be slow and we went to the counter to pay rather than keep on waiting for the bill.

Definitely vegetarian. The owners also have a vegetarian restaurant just a few steps down the road- The Veg Bar which has vegan options :)
