Went here when I was in Ottawa on business last week The wait staff were terrific, very warm and friendly and got me a great table for my business dinner. The food was very disappointing. The pizza base was not freshly made and was from prepackaged frozen, as was the manicotti. I wouldn't go here again.

We have been going to Capones for decades and have always enjoyed our visit. Last night was the biggest disappointment ever. I always order the Zucchini appetizer and it came like matchsticks and overcooked. The server did nothing to fix this, such as take it off our bill. Will not go back again.

You would have to set the bar extremely low to consider this great Italian food. Sloppy plating and nothing bold or innovative in flavours. Seems like a menu from the 80's. Also, we weren't sure if it was a sports bar with all the gaudy decor. I applaud they have been around so long but time to freshen things up.... More

3 friends and I made a last minute decision to eat here. What a great decision! We each had different items from the menu. Pasta, steak and chicken. All fantastic! We all agreed that we will be going back.

We used to go to Capones years ago and really liked the food and atmosphere. We decided to go back again and see if it was still yummy. We were seated in a corner near a small cabinet. This was filled with bottles and very dusty. It also appeared that someone had bumped the case and knocked a bunch of... More

Wonderful decor. Food average but a very cozy place. Service is excellent. It's best to make a reservation especially if you would like a booth.

Best "Little Sports Bar" in town. Great food, great service. From appetizers to Penne to daily specials. Can't go wrong.

So here's the unexpected: There's a tiny pub at the back of the restaurant that many people don't know about. Very cosy; there's room for maybe 15 people but the staff are very personable. If you are in Ottawa West on Carling looking for a spot, see if you agree.
