It started with getting a cocktail containing a wedge of lime which was used previously for zesting, and got progressively worse. When I made the reservations I asked if the lunch menu was it or if there would be specials-- I was assured there would...More

I remember the previous Capellini, the menu was better. What we had was okay the sugo was good but had to send it back because it was way under cooked & I like my pasta al dente. Also believe it's way overpriced it was $100....More

Had a quick lunch here. Very good atmosphere and service. The gnocchi was good with a simple tomato sauce. The bread is great too

We wanted to revisit and see what has changed since they re-opened. The Decor is the same, the menu is much more focused and paired down. We had a great service, the pasta was great, and the special halibut was even better. If you are...More
