Drink prices went up and portions smaller with higher cost. But guess what , still a great place to try authentic Mexican food in a casual environment. Only reason not 5... More

When I met my wife, she lived about 300 feet away. Since she moved to the Valley, we look for opportunities to return to Torrance to enjoy a meal at La Capilla. La Capilla serves more authentic dishes than the typical Mexican restaurant. You can get tacos and enchiladas, but try something unusual. The decor' is attractive, the service is... More

Always a busy place. And always friendly service. Had the chicken burrito. It was so tasty and the portion was so big that I'm definitely ready for a nap :-) David D.

Review can only show "average" and "very good". I would say that this place is good, above average. Portions are big enough and that can make you full for the rest of the day. Nice ambiance. Prices are ok. Not too expensive for what it is.
