    A very welcoming restaurant with friendly staff and attentive service. We went for a Saturday lunch prior to a football match and it was ideal. Only negative I would say is save your money and don't opt for the truffle pizza - it's not worth it. The rest of the food was very good.

    Been here a few times already, food was delicious as usual. I asked for vegan options and was being taken care of. Service was attentive and welcoming. Will definitely come again.

    Efficient, amazing authentic Italian at its best! We had the Capenelle pasta with rich wine beef shins and Margherita pizza to share - sooo tasty ! add the witloff/pear and rocket salad as side was perfect for 2 people. Treated ourselves with 3 desserts - creme brûlée, panacotta and affogato. Very busy - recommend to book early. Fabulous and friendly service by Vince - we will definitely be back ! Vanessa and Chris

    Price was ok with discount, otherwise not worth full price. Did not honour discount until asked. Greeting on arrival was rough. Acted like too busy to know their customers. Junior staff were good.

    Truffle season brought us here. The truffle degustation was superb. Every dish was a delight and the cheesecake was extraordinary. Need to have this again soon!

    Great Italian joint, cosy vibes, authentic cooking with fresh local produce and good service. The pizza came out looking less crisp than usual to me, in saying so the base was cooked well - enjoyed every bit of the crust. The cauliflower dish with harissa and labne was superb!

    The atmosphere was lovely, young staff were so polite and lovely. However the pizza was by far the worst I have had in my life. The amalfi pizza had about 1-2 prawns chopped into tiny 1/2 cm pieces and so little cheese you could not see it or taste it. Honestly just tasted like a pizza base. The snapper was lovely though however judging by other people’s wonderful experiences here, I was very disappointed and safe to say will never be back.

    This restaurant has become a main staple of our Leichhardt loves. Great pasta, opportunity to eat outside if you are so inclined, and friendly service.

About the restaurant

Located in the Italian central of Sydney on Norton Street, Capriccio focusses on modern Italian while sticking to typical Italian flavours. Using their woodfire oven for anything and everything, from paninis, to vegetables and porchetta. On a nice day, sit outside and watch the world go by (with a spritz in hand, of course) or tuck into something filling when dinner rolls around. Oh, and take a moment to admire the beautiful crockery - they're hand painted and imported from Italy. Gorgeous! -
