Capo’s Signature Dishes – Deep Dish Pizza, Lasagna
Capo’s’s Menu features 8 pizza’s available in 4 different cooking styles, several pasta dishes, several entrees and appetizers. The drink menu looks very interesting.
Capo’s Food Picks:
Complimentary pasta fagoli soup was zesty and a bit salty.
Garlic Bread ($3.95) was plentiful, very greasy, and topped off with cloves of garlic. Good stuff.
Wood Fired Meat Lasagna ($15) was huge and very cheesy. Cooked just right, filled with egg noodles, and very filling. Make sure you keep some room for Pizza though.
Sam Giancana ($26) Tomato Sauce, Mozzarella, Provolone, House Honey Calabrese Sausage, Chicago Italian Sausage, Garlic, Oregano & Romano was a huge deep dish pizza topped off with a ton of tomatoes. Really nice ingedients, a thin bottom and a thick crust. Not as buttery or corn-mealy as Zachary’s or Paxti. Definitely give this one a try. It does take 45 minutes of bake time.
Margherita ($19) Mozzarella, Provolone, Tomato Sauce, Garlic, Basil, Oregano, Romano in a cracker thin crust was a departure from other Margherita Pizza’s we’ve tried. The crust was super thin, slightly burnt underneath and very crispy. The pizza was cut into squares. A nice contrast to the deep dish pizza.
