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.

I really wanted to like this place as it is within walking distance from our house. We’ve been there about 10 times hoping that the experience would compel us to come back on a regular basis. Sadly, the food an service are very inconsistent and they’ve been getting worse. Just had a take out of pizzas and pasta, safe bet I thought. Pizzas were under cooked on top and burnt on the bottom. The pasta was over cooked, mushy and soggy noodles. This experience was the nail in the coffin. Never again.

Portions were small and mediocre at best. Would not substitute mushrooms (wife is allergic to them) and had to remove the onions because they were sauteed together. Entree was a 6oz. steak on a thin bed of mash potatoes. Would not serve bread even though i asked to pay extra. they reversed the desserts and all I got was a smile and an apology. This is our 4'th time there and our last.

It was really packed when we arrived and we had to wait for our table for about 30 minutes, but the hostess kept updating us and checking on us. There was lots of action in the kitchen to keep us entertained. We took our nephew for his 30th birthday. He is also a fan of Chef Massimo. He was thrilled to meet him and take a photo with him. Our waiter was awesome. The food was absolutely delicious! We loved our experience!

The food wasn't as tasty as expected. Two main courses were really nice and the other two were bland. Our event was a birthday and my husband was disappointed not to see a beer selection of deserts especially cake.. although having said that the waiter kinfly put a sparkler on his tiramasu.

I’ve had the same server both times I’ve dined and she was fabulous!!! Understood we were three moms out for a dinner without kids. She didn’t rush us, timed the meal fabulously and my glass was never not full. And the food?!? Well.... that goes without saying, it was amazing and did not disappoint. Thank you!!! I can’t wait to come back again.

My first visit to Capra was during Savour Mississauga. We weren't overly impressed but we allowed Capra to redeem themselves a couple of weeks later. Capra is located in the Clarkson neighborhood of Mississauga. For our second visit, we went to Capra's for a birthday dinner with family. I called ahead to let them know of the occasion and they had a birthday card signed by Chef Massimo awaiting at our table - It was a nice touch. The restaurant has a warm interior with unique lighting and a bar lined up with wine bottles to the ceiling. I noted that the restaurant was filling up fast and Chef Massimo was making his rounds greeting diners. As we settled, I had let our server, Jason, know that one member of my party had a low sodium requirement. Jason was great. He knew the menu and specials off the top of his head and even described how the dishes were prepared and which ones could be made with low sodium. We started with drinks and appetizers of bruschetta and crispy garlic and chickpeas dip. Both dishes arrived and they were delicious. The dip was especially tasty that came with soft bread and was topped with whole roasted chickpeas. Jason (great service) came by for our dinner orders. There was one item that we asked if it could be made low sodium - the Capra Pizza. He checked with the kitchen and he said they could accommodate by removing the tomato sauce. Along with the Pizza, the table ordered Spagettini Clams, Salmon Filet, Agnolotti Wild Boar (on the advice of Jason) and Tagliatelle Bolognese. It took a little while for our orders to arrive. However, while we were waiting, the Manager, Joanne came by to check in on us. That was appreciated - great customer service. The food look a little longer than expected, probably because they do not rush you here. When the dishes came, they came piping hot. Members of the party raved about the Spagettini Clams and Salmon Filet. Both tasted so fresh and the salmon was a big filet portion cooked perfectly with caviar lentils which was a nice touch. I had the Bolognese. Most restaurants overpower the bolognese with tomato sauce. Not here. It was in perfect balance so the meat flavour of the beef, veal and pancetta shines through and goes perfectly with the al dente cooked pasta. The pizza was good even without the tomato sauce and was big enough for 2 people. The Wild Boar dish was amazing. I had a chance to have a bite of this. It was ravioli stuffed with wild boar in a rich mushroom sauce served in a unique circular dish. Very unique and tasted great - thanks for advice Jason! Jason came by periodically to re-fill our drinks and check in on us. We were so stuffed that we didn't have room for dessert. However, Jason came by with a big plate of Neapolitan ice cream topped with whip cream and a birthday candle. He lead us to singing "Happy Birthday" and we all had some of the dessert (there is always room for ice cream!). A great way to cap our great dinner experience. If you go, do make reservations. We will certainly be returning.

This restaurant is always busy, as it should be. But the service staff is fantastic. We can see they are run off their feet but they always have a smile on their face. They always take the time to answer your questions. I love this place. The food brings me back of course but the service is the cherry on top

First time visit. Attended for lunch on a Thursday with a group of four. We were one of the early patrons and later maybe one-third full. Table service was great. Waited just a tad long to get our meals. Once food arrived it was great. , .

This was my second time to visit Capras and I am already planning on who the next friends are I will take there. Great food and wonderful, friendly staff. Also amazing to see Chef Massimo there. I have been watching him on tv for over 20+ years. Loved him and Chef Lynn Crawford on Restaurant makeover, which is where I first started watching him. Thank you Chef for opening your restaurant in our neighbourhood

Apps are always the highlight at Capras and continue to be so. My pasta mains was disappointing others in my party fared a little better. Maybe it’s because we are not regulars or maybe we are just unlucky but once again we were seated in the worst possible available seat in the house (I arrived later than the rest of my party like last time). It seems like the pick the worst spot they can and if you don’t complain well there you are.
