Anyone elso try Il Capriccio Pizzeria yet?

I read the one review. Anyone else try them out yet? Is it pizza only? What kind of topping action do they have? Is it good? Great? Ok? Expensive? I can walk there in five minutes, however, I am insane and would like to hear what other think before I venture in. Thanks in advance

  1. Well, it was probably my review you read, but to recap, it was pretty good but expensive ($18 for a smallish-sized large). There's lots of toppings available (eggplant, arugula, pine nuts, shrimp, etc.) There's also salads and paninis but I didn't try any. I'm planning to try it again and eat in the restaurant to see if it's possible to achieve greatness by consuming it right after coming out of the woodburning oven.

    1. i went there last night. the dining area looked really nice but i wish they would have told us they did not have alcohol available yet. my friend and i just wanted to have some wine and appetizers so when we were seated we were disappointed to have to leave.

      their manager was very apologetic and told we could get a bottle of wine from tiger or whatever that restaurant next door was and bring it back. but it was a bit too much trouble for us so we ended up at niko niko sushi. i'll be back to il cappriccio though, the menu looked very interesting.

        you're talking about the il capriccio restaurant on Vermont. That's different from the newly opened pizza joint on Hollywood Blvd.

      2. Yes it was your review. Your blog is on my favorite places and I always enjoy your writing. Even though I value your opinion, I was looking for some others perspective as well.Thanks for responding chowpatty.

        1. I think you're referring to the Il Capriccio, not the pizzeria referenced above, which probably would not be described as "really nice," as it's very simple.

          1. huh? there's il capriccio and il capriccio pizzeria both in los feliz? oh, i guess i was at the snazzy one. it was pretty. my first time there.
