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.

This was my second time at Capra's Kitchen. I took my friend there for her birthday dinner... her first time at the restaurant. No complaints at all about the food... everything we had was delicious! The service however was a whole different story, starting from the moment we walked in. I had made and confirmed my reservation, however upon speaking with the Hostess, I was told that she sees my reservation but the table number "won't pop up". At this point there were about 6 empty tables available...but we still had to wait for the situation to be figured out. Our server Daniel was pleasant and friendly but made sure he told us that 1) he was new and 2) they were going to be busy so he couldn't really let us know how long our food would take once we ordered it. Given it was a Friday night and the restaurant would have known ahead of time the status of their reservations, I found this to be an interesting way of approaching the situation (I myself have been in the hospitality industry for over 10 years). That being said, we placed our drink orders...1 mocktails and 1 glass of wine. 20 minutes later, the mocktails arrived...no wine... no order taken. We flagged down a gentleman who I guess was the manager that evening and followed up on the wine. At that point our server came back to the table and said he forgot to punch in the wine order! He apologized, took our food order and left. After about 10 more minutes, the glass of wine arrived followed by our appetizer. By the time he came to ask how the appetizer was, we were done! Our mains arrived but server was nowhere to be found! We wanted chilli flakes for the pizza but were unable to get anyone's attention and by the time Daniel finally got back to check on us (easily over 20 mins) and brought over the chilli flakes, we were done with our pasta and pizza. At this point I noticed that my glass has a big crack in it which I pointed out to him. The response I got was "Did you just notice this?" Followed by "I don't know what to say...sorry!" I was definitely surprised at this nonchalant response. The manger replaced by dei k without any response to the cracked glass or anything else. Given it was my friend's birthday I had called ahead and requested that the little birthday treat they provide say "Happy Birthday" along with her name and be brought out after dinner. This too was confirmed multiple times. After dinner, it was clear that no notes on our reservation had been paid attention to as we were asked if we wanted dessert... which basically ruined the surprised as I had to turn say that dessert had already been organized. Another surprise when the bill came... neither the mocktail (served in the cracked glass) nor the wine (that took almost half an hour to arrive as our server forgot to punch it in) was taken off the bill! A disappointing service experience that took away from the overall evening.

This was my second time and everything was great. Ricotta pancakes....deliciousnessss. We had spaghetti alla carbonara and carciofi also deliciousness. We were so excited for the porchetta Benny but we’re a little disappointed that it was cured porchetta as a cold cut and not the actually Roasted porchetta. 4 out of 6 quests ordered it as we r porchetta fans. That’s why I rated the food 4 and not 5. Shall return to enjoy ur patio. Also thank you for surprising my son in law with a birthday dessert. We were all so full that we didn’t have room for dessert. 👍
