What do you usually order?

I like the Caprese salad, the bruschetta is really good; I really like the ice tea with the scoop of Angelo Brocato’s lemon gelato, it’s great for a nice summer day. My ex-wife and I usually come here and get the Tuscan pizza and add capers.

What are you getting today?

Well, we have this divine portobella, which is really good. You’d better take some before I eat it all. I’m also ordering one of the specials, the Pasta Capri, which is shrimp sautéed with spinach, sun-dried tomatoes and kalamata olives over fettuccine in a white wine butter sauce.

Why do you like coming here so often?

I love the outside patio with the misters, and it’s right off of Esplanade, which is nice because I can just walk here. The service is always awesome and everyone that works here is friendly. Most of them are in bands or DJ, which is cool.
