Terrible Food and Service!!! Never Again!! – I wish I could give negative stars for this awful establishment but unfortunately thats not possible. My GF and I came here on a date because of all of the great reviews they've gotten here. REALLY? Does this place have ringers writing these because it was nowhere even close to what we expected. We walked in and we were sat immediately. After waiting for about 10 minutes for someone to come by and say hello, I got up and informed a server that was walking around. They said they would send someone right over. We should have just left right then but we didn't. A few minutes later a guy came by and took our drink and food order then disappeared once again. As we sat there slurping the remnants of our soda from our empty glasses, we patiently waited for our food. My GF had the baked ziti. She said it wouldn't have been bad if the noodles weren't hard and it had flavor. I felt close to the same way about my Veal picatta, which has to be one the easiest dishes to prepare, yet it tasted like one thing and one thing only...SALT. Nasty. I would have loved to inform a manager of our lovely evening but we never saw one. So I guess we can let them know here. WE WILL NEVER GO BACK HERE. Do not waste your time.
Fabulous – Capozzi's has great food choices. The basil oil is impeccable. In addition, the owners come to each table to check to see if everything is okay. When we were there on Friday, we enjoyed a piano player as well. The wait staff is very knowledgable about the details of the food and wine. Afterwards, have fun in the garden playing bocce ball. Capozzis was quite a treat.
Tasty food but the ambiance wasn't for me – We tried this restaurant based on reviews here on Citysearch. Our opinion is that this would be a phenomenal place to get take-out, but eating here may not be worth it. The parking lot was a fiasco (we gave up and parked at the plaza down the street). The place was packed so we had to wait about 30 mins for a table... no big deal as we stood at the bar and had a drink. There were two live bands, one inside and one out. Our table was outside and the outside band was playing at such a high volume level that the waiter had to practically yell to be heard. The music was fine, but just too loud. The inside dining room looked nice, with booths and white tablecloths. The outside looked less so, with plastic chairs and no heaters. The staff really hustled and the place seems well managed. But after freezing out in the "plastic-chairs patio" being assaulted by loud music, we would have more enjoyed taking our food home.
Best Italian restaurant I've ever had – I saw this restaurant frequently but I never thought to stop by. I finally went today with my gf and was I impressed. By far it is the best pasta I've ever tasted as well as the best manicotti. The server was very nice. Too bad I don't remember his name, but I will remember his face the next time I do come. The owner came by while we were eating and was very friendly. Offered us to try their desserts, but because of the large portions, we were stuffed. My only complaint is that I don't have enough stomach space to have continued eating. I will be returning again here, but this time I'm bring my family. Great atmosphere.
My New Favorite Restaurant – I am so impressed not only by the food here, but their excellent service trumps that of all the other Italian restaurants I previously frequented. My boyfriend and I have only dined there a handful of times, and they always remember us when we come back! Tonight we got there in time for the late night menu (which didn't include salads), but they made one for us anyway! Then we ordered "Grandpa's Pie," which is essentially a white pizza with just the right amount of basil and garlic and fresh roma tomatoes. It was great until our pizza somehow fell off our high table. We didn't expect them to do anything about it, since we had already eaten half the pizza; but they made us new one! I can't say enough about this place. They are so accommodating, and the food is by far the best Italian in the area!!
Best Italian in Atlanta that we've found so far... – This food is unbelievable. I'd say it trumps our Italian standby on Chesher Bridge Rd by several points.
It's a few bucks more than Italian chains, but so worth it.
Delicious Italian – Got a calzone from here recently. The guy I talked to on the phone was very pleasant and helpful and my food came nicely packaged not slapped together in some flimsy box like other places. The food was delicious. On the down side, it was a little more expensive than other Italian places around Emory. Still, I would Definitely go again for some quality food.
Editorial Review by Jonathan Baker – This New York-style Italian eatery brings solid 'za to Decatur, bocce ball courts included.
Great Pizza – My husband and I frequently patronize the Capozzis new location on Clairemont in Decatur. The food and the service have been great. Their seafood specials are awesome! I love the pizza and the salads. The pizza is the closest to New York style that I have eaten so far in Atlanta .The creamy garlic salad dressing is not overpowering. It has just the right amount of garlic. Give Capozzis a try.
Best Pizza in Atlanta – I love this place! I'm a New Jersey transplant living in Atlanta and often find myself craving the great italian food from up north. My wife heard about this italian restaurant opening up in the Emory Area on Clairmont Road that claimed to serve "NY Style Pizza." Needless to say, I had low expectations considering a lot of restaurants claim to be "NY Style" and often disappoint.
After trying this restaurant several times, I am proud to say not only does this restaurant serve actual "NY style" pizza, it is the best pizza in the city. My family has tried many of the dishes on their menu and everyone agrees with me that this place has great food. Unlike some other Italian restaurants in Atlanta, this place is low on prices and high on charm. It is a true find; I can't wait to go back and get another slice.
