SquareMeal Review of Caparossa

Having traded in Naples for some 16 years, Nicola Buona & his team have turned their attention to Putney with the launch of Caparossa – the name means ‘red head’, a reference to the owner’s dad & his unusual red hair. A cured meat display cabinet & a glass-fronted wine cellar hold centre stage in the main eating area, & the menu aims to celebrate rustic Italian food in all its forms, from sharing plates of charcuterie & Neapolitan fried pizzas to battered vegetables & arancini (fried rice balls). Mains focus on UK-sourced pork & beef, as well as traditional south Italian pastas, while desserts promise homemade pastries & more besides. There are plans to roll out more outlets as time progresses.

We really wanted this restaurant to succeed as we are locals. The first time I visited was at lunchtime and we had the most delicious home made vegetable soup. The restaurant was empty but the 3 of us enjoyed our meal. The next visit was a few months later in the evening to try their new pizza menu. It is a good idea for them to serve pizza as they are situated right next door to Carluccios who are very well established in this part of Putney and they need a point of difference. Pizzas were fine but a little undercooked and nothing to write home about. Started with a plate of mixed italian meats (£10 for a fairly mean plate) and a mozzarella and parma ham. We will not return this restaurant is just not good enough. In these tough times I really want a delicious meal for my money with great service, neither of which was on offer here. Disappointing. Why is it so hard to eat well in Putney?

very nice traditional Italian food, freshly cooked. Freshly baked bread. Real Italian food, with no compromises and reasonable prices. Strongly recommended for Italians!!!
