Maybe this time they'll let us know who the chef is.

    Yeah, it's funny that Capocaccia and Terroni will continue to be pretty much across the street from each other in their new digs. I think that both are planning to do wine bar + small plates (that's what Terroni is planning on the main floor - regular resto upstairs). Did Quanto Basta open yet? Last time I walked by there, they were still renovating but I like the looks of what they're doing in there. I'm a die-hard Terroni fan but in the 4 or 5 times I tried Capocaccia, the food was quite decent (though it doesn't have the same energy as Terroni).

      I've never found much to write home about Terroni's (for the pastas anyway); is Capocaccia more flexible about subs? I've always meant to go there and have never done so for some reason...

        Though I've never asked, I'm guessing Capocaccia is more flexible on subs if for no other reason than they're across the street from the guys who are famously not. I don't want to get into the whole Terroni debate again but I will say that for me, their pizzas beat the pastas (though some of the pastas are quite good, their salads are great and overall, while Capocaccia has good food, Terroni is the place I go back to time and time again. But I understand there is strong opinion the other way. It'll be interesting when they each open up their new spots a few blocks south - I'm looking forward to trying both (and it looks like Capocaccia jr. will have about at least a 5 month head start with their opening).

          Not to be totally stupid here but I checked out that link and didn't see any info that was obvious on these two new places. And I'm very curious!

      For years I've thought that this strip needed Pizza Banfi, Rosedale. I guess we'll have to settle for Terroni and Capocaccia's offspring. Interesting. Thanks!

        Anybody know if they've opened? I drove by there a few days ago and it was packed inside but not sure if it was a "friends and family" opening. The space looked GORGEOUS with big windows opening out into the street.
