Take a seat at Capone's Cucina
By Bill Borden
What's on the menu: Whatever your classic Italian palate is crying out for, Capone's has it and it's delicious. The pasta selection is wide and creative.
Choose from staples such as Spaghetti Bolognese, Ravioli, Linguini and Lasagna or go for the more epicurean Fettuccini Salmone, Penne con Petite Di Pollo or Farfalle O'Sole Mio.
The cozy spot in Newland Center will serve up your choice of eight delicious salads or six different and tasty Antipasti Appetizers. Capone's also offers a good selection of fish, chicken, veal and beef dishes.
In addition to its veal parmegiana and picatta, Capone's serves Osso Bucco Dello Chef – "veal shank baked in hearty red sauce, served over penne pasta."
Recommendations: On my last visit, I enjoyed the classic Spaghetti Bolognese with a house salad. The homemade meat sauce here rivals any other in Orange County. It has an authentically robust flavor without any one overpowering ingredient.
Yes, you can taste the quality and artistic expertise with which the tomatoes, garlic, onion, basil, and other spices are combined, but the overall taste is what counts here.
We also enjoyed the Pasta Fagioli soup with a side salad for a light dinner. The spumoni in a dark chocolate shell and a cup of hearty coffee is the perfect way to finish up your Capone's Cucina experience.
Whatever you have here, have it with lots of Capone's fresh baked bread. Prepared continuously throughout the day, the loaf that will be on your table just came out of the oven.
What makes this place unique: Although the selection, quality and service at Capone's are all above the mark, the restaurant succeeds in maintaining an informal and friendly atmosphere.
There is nothing pretentious about Capone's. Our waiter, Jose, helped us have not only an excellent dinner, but a good time as well.
In addition to its sit-down restaurant, Capone's will prepare pasta, panini, salad, meat balls or other popular meals for a group at your home or office.
