Speranza on Hyperion?

Has anyone been to Speranza, the new-ish place on Hyperion near Gelson's and Trader Joes? It used to be Caffe Capri, which I loved the two times I went there. Wondering how the new place compares.

  1. I've been there, and it was nice.

    The chef comped us soup (which was very good), but this was when they first opened. I also ordered fish dish (for pick up) that would take 30 minutes to prepare, it was not on time but really good.

    I haven't been there for months, but they started on a strong foot.

    1. That's good to know. Is it still Italian, or is it a different cuisine now?

      1. yeah italian...

        the apps are really good.

        1. re: Fat Billie

          Anyone else been? How does it compare with Da Giannino's?

          It's kept quite a low-profile, I didn't even know a new restaurant had opened....

        2. We're thinking about trying this tonight, it's within walking distance - any other feedback on this place before we do? Do we need reservations. I remember Caffe Capri was small...Thanks.

          1. Please tell me the chef/owner has changed since it's last name. Went there last year and had the most horrifying meal of my life. It was still called Caffe Capri then. I hear the old Caffe Capri used to be amazing back in the day. It's such a cute little space but I fear the last owners may have spoiled it. More reports and menu items please...
