Dinner at Capo!12:43 PM
Italian food is one of my not-so-guilty pleasures; homemade pastas, fresh cheeses, and decadent desserts are just a few of my favorite things. At Capo South Boston, you can find all these with a modern take in a lively atmosphere. While I've visited other South Boston favorites like Lincoln and Coppersmith's Cafe, I hadn't had the pleasure of visiting Capo; long overdue!
To start, the space is huge; hang out at the bar with friends, or grab a table. During peak hours, it can get quite noisy here making it a kid-friendly spot in the heart of South Boston. No one will notice a fit of giggles or crying newborn among the noise from the bar and many dining tables. Not to worry, conversations at your own table are still very much audible. We dived in to some of their most popular apps; Short Rib Arancini, Bruschetta, and fresh Burrata. The Arancini was a favorite, and quickly disappeared followed by the Bruschetta. Topped with whipped goat cheese and roasted mushrooms this was a flavorful spin on the traditional tomato topped appetizer.
We split an order of their flavorful homemade Gemelli pasta with roasted chicken, cherry tomatoes and basil before diving into our entrees; Sea Scallops with bacon, brussels sprouts, and roasted squash, and their Wood Grilled Steak with roasted onions, gorgonzola butter, and vin cotto. Both entrees were perfectly portioned and the steak had such great flavor thanks to the gorgonzola butter; a unique take on a dinner time favorite.
After visiting I can see why so many are in love with this South Boston gem. It's got great food, a diverse menu, and a fun atmosphere. If you're planning a visit consider taking the T or sharing an Uber; Southie is notorious for it's lack of parking. And definitely save room or dessert! I made the mistake of filling up on my meal and missed out on their desserts. Guess that just means I'll be back!
