Craving pizza but tired of the major chains? It can take some time to scour for those locally-owned restaurants that have something special about them. Treasures are often tucked away in small places, and we have found one of those hidden treasures you have been searching for, Capri Pizza and Pasta, located inside of the Lutz Lake Shopping Center on North Dale Mabry Highway.

Walking inside of Capri you will find a homey set up, starting with the mural on the right entrance of the owners of the restaurant, the Verilo family. The kitchen is somewhat open to the restaurant, and the tables on the left are set up with those traditional red checkered table clothes. The overall environment, as described by many, is relaxed, causal, and friendly. It truly has the vibe of a small "mom and pop" place.

Capri Pizza uses only the freshest ingredients, and everything is cooked to order. Their menu consists of a variety of options that will satisfy your Italian craving including NY style pizza, salads, pastas, sub sandwiches, and desserts. Customers rave about their Garlic Knots, Philly Cheese Steak, and the traditional Neapolitan Pizza.

Catering is also available, and they are always offering special deals for large orders. Currently, if you place an order for 12 pizzas, you will receive a FREE large pizza!

Whether you decide you want something on the go, or to relax and dine in, Capri Pizza and Pasta is the place to go!

They are open Tuesday-Saturday from 11am-9pm, Sunday Noon-8PM, and are closed on Mondays.
