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.

The most delicious bolgnese I have ever had and I don’t ever order this but it was recommended! I return and I return for this dish to satisfy my craving for it! Gluten free fettuccine is outstanding, cooked to perfection, also a rare find! It was the beet risotto before this, absolutely delicious as well!

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.

The atmosphere at Capra's is enticing and the incredibly inviting scents from the kitchen bring you into the restaurant wanting to enjoy a good meal. The service was a little slow that night though. We ordered drinks which came soon enough and then ordered a Margherita pizza for the table to share. The pizza took about 45 minutes to arrive. We weren't sure what happened, but the server told us that they may have lost the order. The mains arrived within a good amount of time, hot and delicious. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meals, comprised of Branzino, Vongole and Tartufata. I had the Red Beet Risotto, which was enjoyable, however the red beet chips were soggy and the dish was warm at best. We also sampled some of the delicious desserts, including the Tiramisu and Castamole al Cioccolato. A really relaxed atmosphere and overall an enjoyable night. Would definitely return and maybe sit on the patio.

Not being one to complain, I offer this as constructive feedback. They had no record of our reservation, which I booked and was confirmed by this site. Service was brutally slow. We’d stopped by for a light brunch and waited one hour for our food. This was after we went and asked about it. We’d noticed other tables eating and they’d arrived well after us. I’m pretty sure the order was forgotten or lost. We’ve been there before and it’s been good. Probably just the waiter we had. He really didn’t seem to be “with it”. Next time we hope for a better experience

Hi, I would have been more impressed had my reservation actually been in the restaurant's books. I booked on line via Bookenda.com which is how the restaurant takes reservations. I got a reservation number and the email to add the booking to my calendar, which I shared with the rest of my party. We arrived at the scheduled time to the restaurant and they had no reservation for us. Thankfully, we were eating early in the evening so they could accomodate us. Had it been at 7:30 or 8pm I am not sure what the restaurant would have done. I am quite disappointed by this. Aside from the reservation fiasco, our waitress was friendly and efficient. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The carpaccio appetizer was delicious and appealingly presented. 2 of us ordered pizza and were not disappointed. The crust was thin but not too thin and perfectly crispy. The toppings were fresh (although I asked for no onion and our waitress offered to switch them for tomatoes but the pizza showed up with out them in the end -not a big deal). One person ordered the wild boar agnoliotti and it was delicious! The other ordered the bolognese tagliatelle and he enjoyed his meal as well. Portion sizes are good. The restaurant is quite open and modern and is suitable for families, especially at the early time we were there. I think there would be more atmosphere later in the evening. Would definitely go back again.

Amazing! Business colleague in from out West and chose Capra's Kitchen because of Massimo's reputation. But the most amazing was Fabio (general manager)! His care for our experience was so extra. We sat on the patio (magic) and he was greeting and chatting with everyone but we felt he only had eyes for us. Amazing food and atmosphere and I have recommended this treasure to everyone who will listen. We will be back! Ciao for now but not for long!!

Every single member of the staff were welcoming and had smiles on their faces. Our server was lovely and she had personally walked me over to the washroom when I had asked where it was, as we were dining on the patio. She always came to check on us at the perfect moment, we didn't have to flag her down nor was she constantly interrupting. The food was great and cooked well.

We will definitely be back! All dishes beautifully presented, at the right temperature and delicious. Our service was excellent and the team very efficiently kept things going. The one small drawback is that if you are a table for just two, depending on how tables are configured at the time, you may find yourself within earshot range of guests on either side....This is a must try restaurant!

Can never say enough good about Capra's. The food and attentive service are absolutely the best. We took 2 very good friends here on Friday evening and they raved about the food and want to go back. We have come to know many of the servicers and they are all incredible and our good friend Fazio has a tendency to spoil us. We love everything about Capra's!!!!
