Meet the owner

His friends told him he was crazy, but when celebrity chef Massimo Capra gets an idea stuck in his Italian-Canadian head, it’s hard to shake. “People warned me that ‘the 905’ might not be the right place for my next venture, but I had a feeling they were wrong," says Massimo. "I don’t care who you are or where you live, everyone appreciates great food. Right?” His hunch paid off; line-ups formed nightly outside of his new Mississauga restaurant even before it had officially launched. Capra’s Kitchen was an instant success.

No doubt Massimo's track record as restaurateur, cookbook author and Food Network personality contributed to the immediate appeal of his new restaurant. Prior to Capra’s Kitchen, this effervescent entrepreneur had already launched several successful restaurants, most notably Toronto’s popular Mistura and Sopra, and Pearson Airport’s Boccone. Some might wonder why a guy at this stage of his career would even bother to open one more…but Massimo has good reason.

Great spot. Food was great. Service good. Would recommend to others and will visit again. It is a large open room so may get noisy if super busy. Nice to see that they have a nice big patio out front if the weather ever improves.

Great vibe! Awesome atmosphere. The food was great. Eggs were a bit over-done for sunny side up, Caesar had a ton of ice which watered it down very fast. Service was awesome. Waiter was new so didn't know the whole menu well.

The meal was good, but very small portions and quite expensive for what you're getting. The server was friendly and attentive, however, the meal took a long time to arrive. Overall, a 3 1/2 - 4 rating.

First time at Capra's. I had heard nothing but good things about the food and service from various people. The food was good but unfortunately the service was terrible! Our server took forever to bring us water and our appetizers. Told us he would be back with side plates and cutlery and didn't come back! Then another server asked us the same - she didn't cone back either! Finally a third server brought us what we needed. We finished our appetizers and our original server finally came back to our table, only to let us know that he "would place the order" for our mains at that time - another 20 minute ish wait for our food - which was brought to the table by a guy who walked up to us, didn't say a word, turned around and took the food away, and then it was brought back by someone else. A lady with a bottle of Lemonciello told us she would be looking out for when we were having dessert so she could bring us some of the liqueur - we never saw her again either - despite ordering dessert. Very disappointing experience overall.

Loved it! It was our first visit and I had wanted to come sooner Read about Capras Kitchen in the Mississauga Goodlife magazine in early January 2017. My son who is a chef for Earls - king street also came by in early April and told us about it We are foodies and enjoy food and the ingredients that go in to making taste like " home".

Service will as slow - took nearly an hour to get entrees - we have 2 kids who weren't thrilled to wait until nearly 7:30 for their meal. Pasta with meat sauce had a few specks of meat - but generally flavourless and lacked sauce/substance. Lamb chops were uninspiring. Overall disappointing - especially for the prices ($22-30 for entree). Paper napkins were also annoying - small nit but when you are marketed as "fine dining" and charging $30 for pasta...a cloth napkin would be nice. We were also celebrating a birthday while there - it went unrecognized or acknowledged. Overall disappointed and not likely to return or recommend.

I expected more. I sat on the patio and faced the Plaza - not a great sight!! Might consider closing off the patio - making it more private, and block off the sight of the Plaza and street.

Been there a few times and have always had a friendly welcome walking in. Knowledgeable / Professional service. Menu selection, food quality, presentation and freshness has always been spot on. Extremely friendly staff and always willing to help. I highly recommend this place / experience. 10 /10 in my books. Carmelo

We made a last minute reservation and were told we had to be out by 8:00 which we said was fine. Fortunately we decided not to have dessert or coffee as we would have been challenged to be done by 8:00 as there was a long wait for our appetizers. We were told the Caesar salad recipe had been changed the day before and my husband said it was good but not amazing - more garlic would have helped. I had the spagettini with crab and the flavour was excellent but the temperature was luke warm. My husband and son both had pizza and said the flavour of the crust was excellent and the toppings were good.

Underwhelming at best. Asked for a grilled chicken breast and vegetables as nothing was appealing to me in the menu. NO. Ok. I will have the tortellini caprese. NO. We are out of that. Fine, I will have spaghetti and tomatoe sauce. It was very bland. No real flavour at all. The pizza was good. The appetizers were unimpressive.

It was a lovely lunch, service was good, food was good, but I have to say it was expensive for an eatery. Lunch for 2 adults was $150.00. I'm not sure if I will go back at those prices.

Celebrated my wife's birthday lunch here. Waitress Michelle was awesome and made great suggestions for apps and mains. Gnocchi and agnolotti were the best we've ever had. Chef Massimo came to the table to wish my wife a happy birthday and checked on our experience when we were leaving. Overall a fantatic experience and we are looking forward to trying the rest of the menu.

2nd time to Capras and it was excellent! Celebrating adult children's birthdays each time. Variety of dishes ordered from grilled whole fish, to pizza and pasta. Appetizers and salads perfect. Portions perfect size-- not American Italian sized!
