Capriccio: Italian for whimsical & fantastical
classic italian flavours with a fun, modern twist
Tuesday - Sunday: All day - 12pm til late
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.
