We arrived early in the evening, and watched as the restaurant gradually filled with a combination of local residents, businessmen and tourists. Quiet, friendly and attentive service bought antipasto misto, and aubergine stuffed with Parma ham and cheese, for starters; followed by spaghetti casa and...More

My husband and I stumbled on this gem. The food and atmosphere was excellent! The service was pleasant and assisted in the translation. We couldn't ask for a better dinner to complete our holiday!

Very good Italian option in Heidelberg - with great attention from staff - and speaking English ! I had bruschetta and then spaghetti amatriciana - and portions were generous. Paid Parking across the restaurant. A bit pricy but well justifiable. Great option

THIS is the real Italian food. Franco - the owner - is on top of Italian cuisine in the Rhein-Neckar area since thirty years. Being his guest for over 25 years Franco's offering never disappointed, often surprised and always made me, my friends and now...More

The Capo was not particularly friendly, if anything somewhat curt. Service and food were not up to the standard that we were used to from our eight years living in Rome. Perhaps poor service is why the restaurant was less than half-full? Whatever it be,...More

Very nice place. Food very good but not huge portions and no pizza's. Shame the owner/older male waiter doesn't take some smiling lessons from the young female waitress. He spoils the place, rude and miserable.

I had several recommendations for this restaurant. Unfortunately, it failed to live up to my expectations. I had a seafood dish that was good value and well prepared. The taste was, however, more like Maggi seasoning than the fresh Mediterranean flavours that I expected. We...More
