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.

Our first visit and it was great. Food was delicious and our waitress was the best. It was a Birthday celebration and couldn't have been better. Heads up, parking is behind the restaurant off Lakeshore. G & K

Una Notte in Piemonte was the sixth of the special evenings I have experienced at Massimo's. Chef Massimo and Chef Nitesh Rohra stayed loyal to the cuisine of Piemonte. When you demonstrate a specific Regional Cuisine, not all dishes are going to be to everyone's taste. Someone sitting near me could not eat the Carne Cruda; I thought it was excellent but I eat beef carpaccio several times a year. Did the Italians steal it from the French or vice versa? Service, as usual, was excellent. Chef Massimo has a very enthusiastic staff. I enjoy the time at the bar as people gather before the event. The Italian Small Bites are always a surprise and always excellent. When we move in to the private events room, a bunch of strangers sit down and become friends.There are usually about 50 people at 2 long tables. My conversations included one person accross and about 6 on either side. Sometimes my wife is with me, sometimes not. Doesn't matter. everyone interacts.

Capra’s Kitchen is quickly becoming a favourite hangout. The food was terrific and the service was outstanding on a very busy Saturday night....... add a great bottle of wine and good company and you will leave very satisfied and looking forward to your next trip back.

Massimo and his staff always provide wonderful food and excellent atmosphere. This was a private function hosted in their party room and they could not have been more attentive and helpful with the organizing of the event and everything on the day was perfect. We have received so many thanks from the attendees. We could not be happier.

I love this restaurant and overall I am satisfied. Our server who seems lovely, did not take orders based on when people were seated and ready to order. Also, I ordered an item to go which she forgot to put in. When I reminded her she offered to add it but by then it was too late because we were already leaving. She seemed more attentive to guests around us.

The food was amazing and the service was top notch. We had a great bottle of wine (at half price on Mondays)- which was probably the best wine I've had in a while. My friend's gnocci almost melted in our mouth, and my mushroom pasta was absolutely delicious. Definitely coming here again!

Restaurant was hopping even at 6:30 pm. We choose to sit on patio as it was quieter than main dining room and the weather was lovely. For appetizers we had arugula salad and bufala mozzarella. Salad was good although not exceptional. Mozzarella was just ok. The cheese itself wasn’t as creamy or fresh as expected and decision to include tomato purée as base added a strange sweetness to a dish that should revel in simplicity: cheese, tomatoes, basil. Mains were raging bolognese and capras pizza. Pasta was homemade, check. Sauce was flavourful and enjoyable ... my companion found it salty. Pizza crust was very good. Toppings were good but pizza improved greatly with drizzle of olive oil. Base pesto sauce could benefit from more moisture. Wondering if pesto plus tomato base would elevate. Pizza is tough in this area because 850 Degrees about 15 minutes east on Lakeshore excels! Service was friendly but not paced well. We waited 45 minutes between appetizers and entrees which is uncomfortably long. Offer for drinks or desert on the house appreciated but better paced service is key. Overall 3 out of 5 stars and with so many other high caliber Italian restaurants in Mississauga and Oakville, I don’t think we will be back.

This was my 4th time here but I was disappointed with the food quality. Food wasn’t hot the avocado toast was soggy. It’s my favorite place in Mississauga for brunch I hope they manage to maintain the good quality.
