THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Caputo Restaurant Review

: The linear fire pits outside catch your attention, and the loud and energetic crowd inside keeps it. Cheerful cooking staff work the large open kitchen and pizza oven, and the rustic, wood-heavy d├ęcor makes for a casual and friendly ambience to enjoy a meal or just one of the many local craft beers or wines on tap. California meets Italy in updated, often locally sourced trattoria cuisine, from squid ink pasta to exceptionally soft braised lamb tongue. Charred octopus is well-executed, and burrata makes a these-days-required appearance with the updated notes of hazelnuts. Wines by the glass are extensive and non-traditional with many Italian offerings and varietals. Desserts range from a selection of gelatos and sorbets to a handful of prepared items, with the butterscotch budino earning our top honors for its creamy, not-too-sweet, salted caramel flavors.
