The central town of Amatrice, home of the Amatriciana pasta, was devastated by an earthquake on 24th August this year.

Help the people of Amatrice by ordering the Amatriciana and we'll donate $5 from every plate to the Italian Red Cross.



Capriccio is the realisation of our vision to bring a modern Italian experience to Leichhardt, Sydney’s Italian quarter.

After many years of visiting family & travelling throughout Italy we’ve created a space, menu and drinks list that we believe is a great example of what’s currently on offer in Italy.

We never wanted to be restrained by focusing on a single region. Two owners coming from opposite parts of Italy (the Amalfi coast & the Ligurian Riviera) & working with a chef from Emilia Romagna as made us look at and appreciate all of what Italy has to offer: whether it’s aperitifs from venice, wines from Sardinia, crockery & limoncello from Amalfi and food from, well, as many places as possible. Our directive for Capriccio authentic, unmistakably italian with a fun, modern twist.

Who are we? Matteo Galletto & Michele Rispoli co-owners run the floor, both grew up in family restaurants. Michele with his family in the picturesque Positano on the Amalfi coast & Matteo with his father at the legendary Lucio’s in Paddington.

About the space - Downstairs is our 'bar' area, high tables perfect for a quick meal even in larger groups. Upstairs & the covered courtyard out the back have standard tables & chairs and are also our two private spaces for functions. Norton St seating available just out front of the restaurant, temperamental Sydney weather permitting.
