My family enjoyed a lovely casual dinner at El Capitano. We were welcomed with a friendly smile and the great service continued through to our departure. The pizzas were very tasty indeed and with a little rooom let in the tum tum we indulged in some beautiful Maleny Gelato. Yum.

Got placed in the worst seat in the restaurant, next to the front door where the takeaways are picked up, empty tables else where though. Waiter didn’t know much about the wine, also spilt a cocktail across the table. Pizza come after waiting 40 minutes and pepperoni pizza was only half covered in cheese..it wasn’t requested like that. Not a good first impression, I’ve heard nothing but great things and awesome pizzas from here. Disappointed

Casual spot in the middle of Noosa Heads. Perfect after a day at the beach or hiking. Their pizzas are amazing and the atmosphere is laid back but with great service.

Service was very ordinary, we were rushed through our pizza, with a waitress wanting to take it away before we had finished and my half finished drink was taken before I was done.

Really disappointed with food. One of kids pizzas was undercooked. Thought meatballs were average and we had to ask for balsamic and olive oil for our tomatoes. A bit disappointing after friends recommended it.

Our group really enjoyed the time there
However when asked for special occasion, it was daughter engagement celebration , (who got engaged the night before here in our Noosa family holiday ,) we thought we would get complementary glass of champagne at least for the couple , but nothing so bit disappointing when you get specifically asked

Pizza was okay/good, but definitely not amazing and certainly not the best pizza I have eaten at that price point. The restaurant was lovely, and I liked that the entrance was tucked away, but I probably would not return, as I was not impressed by the quality of the pizza.

Really enjoyable gourmet pizzas.
Enticing cocktail menu.
Very Disappointed with the caprice salad - It’s really really difficult to get it wrong ... but cherry tomorrow’s, a single spring of basil, and half a mozzarella all sitting on a plate separately without olive oil or seasoning doesn’t come close to hitting the mark of this classic so so simple Italian salad. A simple thing to fix.

Really amazing in so many ways we love love love it! Best pizza in Australia. Only issue was that after twice asking for no Pineapple on the kids pizza and for it to be replaced with mushroom, it still arrived with pineapple on it. No dramas though we just picked it off. Muso guy was awesome and sounded a lot like Sting circa ‘94.

Tasty pizzas and salads but would have liked wider choice of toppings, especially seafood. Food good value for money but would have liked to see more affordable wine options. Some wait staff friendlier than others. Overall enjoyable.

I was pleasantly surprised with the aesthetic of this venue and the good ambience... everyone seemed to be having a good time. It was busy so definitely book ahead if possible, and it was quite loud but it was 8pm on a Saturday night so I wouldn’t expect much less, but something to keep in mind. We were served by a lovely person by the name of Letitia who provided some of the best service I have seen in years. She was kind, helpful and very patient, and I would go back again and again if I was met with such friendly service. It was a busy night, but she didn’t rush us as we ordered and answered any questions to the best of her ability. This may not seem like a big deal but as someone who has worked in hospitality, I know how hard it can be to stand still and be quiet as guests are pondering the menu for a bit too long. I hope she receives some praise because we all left feeling elated, full (thanks to great recommendations from her) and thankful to have received service that is hard to come about these days. Stoked and will definitely go back!

excellent food, lovely staff although they forgot one pizza we ordered since it was very crowded. It can get very noisy on busy nights and you cannot hear what the person across you is saying since the people are seated in a closed space. But overall a great experience.

Great spot upstairs with a great vibe. Don’t be fooled by the Pizzeria side of it as we are not fan of Pizzas so had the starters as Tapas two nights this week and fantastic! Great service (Trudy great) as was the young lady from St Augustine in the states (didn’t get name). Highly recommend and would say the combo of the Pork Belly, Octupus and Prawns just sensational!
