Capitol’s enticing recipes are so coveted that even a major chip company created a flavour based on their pepperoni and cheese pizza. Open since 1992, the tratorria and is just steps away from College Street’s martini bars and trendy clubs.
Comforts of Home
Mom’s secret recipes are the cornerstones of this quaint restaurant. The menu features mouth-watering antipasti appetizers, pastas, pizzas and meat entrées. One popular dish is Penne alla Vodka, made with fresh pasta and served with onions, chili peppers, and Parmesan cheese in a homemade creamy tomato sauce. Another much-loved dish is the Vitello alla Marsala, a tender veal cutlet sautéed in a mushroom and Marsala wine sauce. Capitol’s ultimate showstopper, however, is definitely its authentic-style pizza: the Calabrese is topped with hot Italian sausages and peppers and is sure to fire up anybody’s taste buds. Luckily, patrons can turn to Capitol’s extensive wine list and full service bar to cool down.
Turn Up the Heat
Due to its large-sized patio, Capitol often booms with business in the summer, and the restaurant remains open until the wee hours of the night. Reservations are also highly recommended during the day, as patrons take their time soaking in the picturesque view from the patio. This trattoria also hosts private parties, which is another good reason to call ahead, as the restaurant will then be closed to the public.
