Il Capo was a great family place to eat. Pizza with stunning thin bases and the best little hot pita breads to start you off. Returning this month we saw it is closed. Hope this is not permanent as this is one of our favorite little Italian spots! Save Il Capo!

Went here with some friends. Ordered a pizza and it was excellent. Crust was perfectly cooked and the toppings were piled on there! The medium pizza was more than enough for me to eat.

Went here for a business dinner. We ordered Pizza Margherita and a T-Bone steak. The service was excellent. It is a simple but good restaurant with very attentive service. The owner is Greek. Excellent value.

Medium steak was red and blue on the inside. Politely complaint gets met with blank stare. Waiter was missing most of the evening. No apology offered by floor manager with tacky weave. Horrible experience.

After being away for a week my daughter came home hungry on a Sunday afternoon. Everyone else was tired and warm at home so the two of us went for dinner and brought take-aways home for my eldest and my wife. We were greeted by Costa, an old friend from Ron's Hideaway days.

A italian restaurant, with great pizza and pasta. But even the seafood is good. Excellent service . Reasonably priced and some really good specials. You can choose to eat inside or outside. Has become a regular visit on business trips as close to the bed and breakfast where I stay. Plenty parking as it is in a small shopping centre,... More
