We had a lovely evening at Cappo Sociale. The food was elegant, tasty, and clean. The wine list is impressive. The atmosphere was moody and felt intimate despite the scale of the room and ceiling heights. Staff were engaging and helpful. It would be the perfect spot for a date night.

The only detractor of the night was our experience when settling the bill. As my friend went to excuse herself to go the bathroom she asked the waitperson if we could get the bill, as soon as she returned to the table, before she even sat back down, the same staff member was at the table with the EFT machine. She was leaning over the table and had entered the details for payment before we had even had a moment to review the bill. It felt as though we were being pressured to pay and leave, although I am sure this was not the intention as there were still other diners in the restaurant. Additionally, where at other restaurants you are usually discreetly given the opportunity to provide a tip she just asked us if we'll be providing a tip, again, it felt a little uncomfortable. It was just an odd interaction.

Overall, we really enjoyed the evening and will be back.

Nice venue to meet friends but too noisy for a table of 8.
The meals arrived at different times so those of us who waited had a cool meal.
They need to ensure that all mains arrive at the same time.
Small criticism, but it makes a difference.
the waitress however was superb.

It was a good experience , we will come again.
As older customers who spend and tip we would have preferred the quieter booth seating.
Food and service were excellent.
music a little out of character and very loud , some Italian classics would be good but maybe corny.

The food was just not upto to mark and the pizza literally took forever . Found the duck pasta very bland, just did not taste restaurant quality the only thing I moderately enjoyed was the Aranchini balls.

Entrees we’re cold. Pasta main was more of an entree portion 4 ravioli not enough as a main portion.
The venue was too dark better lighting needed.
Will not return and will definitely not recommend it.

Caught with uni friends. Service was EXCELLENT!! Our waiter literally second to none. Divine man.
Food however was mediocre, cocktails good and unfortunately it was very loud. Acoustics much much too loud for our table. I found it hard to hear (not that old!) Tables look lovely, surrounded by banquettes but I think they needed to have some soft furnishings added to the top bit to dampen some of the sound. Am wearing my engineering hat !

Food was delicious as were the cocktails. Somewhat dark making the menu hard to read in some areas, noticed one customer had to take out his phone to see. Music was also a bit loud on top of other customers voices so felt like I had to raise my voice. Otherwise loved it. People were lovely.

They need to find their feet again - a lot has slipped since they first opened. A lot of items on the menu unavailable for a dinner sitting. Understaffed and lacking customer service. Waited a long time for drinks, there seemed to be a disconnect between wait staff, bar staff and maître d.
Bread option as a starter seemed like it was a white bread roll out of a packet…a stretch considering they make pizza.

Moody & funky fitout. The food and wine were excellent, although dessert options were a little disappointing. Only gripe is the music too loud and not conducive to chatting with friends (although I make this gripe about nearly every restaurant, as music should only be in the background).

Multiple plates were brought out with elements missing - especially annoying when these include the most expensive items (eg. imported cheese). Must have been an off night when we went.
