This Italian restaurant left us with a mixed feeling. Our party of 7 had mixed experiences concerning the served dishes. My wife and I had scolopini and they were all right but the rest of the party had pasta and none of them was acceptable. For an Italian restaurant this was a setback. Thus we can't recommend this place.

We visited at a slow time of year, and the first time we tried to go to Le Capitaine, they were "complete". We made reservations and came back another night. The pizzas were tasty and the gnocchi au fromage was delicious.

Unfortunately, the staff are just not friendly at El Capitaine and the service is poor. Three in our party had their main course & finished it before the other five of us got our pizza. There was no explanation or apology for this & the pizzas took 45 minutes to arrive after our starter. Personally, I didn't like mine as... More

Our group of six visited after a long day of travel. We were looking for something quick and filling but discovered (as have many before us apparently) that this is not the restaurant for quick. Or friendly. After we were seated we selected our items and waited. And waited. Some time later the waiter came over and asked for our... More

We had 2 great meals here on our ski trip. The steak was excellent and huge. The Pizza and pasta were Equally good. A bit more expensive than the average but worth it.

We had a takeaway pizza from here which was excellent. We also had an evening me all here which was also very good. The welcome and service was very good and the food was excellent.

Great little restaurant, tucked away behind the main drag in Montgenevre. Good hearty portions, fabulous food and good service.

We thought this place would be a lovely traditional Italian place with an atmosphere to match, however I wasn't prepared for such a rude waitress, she seemed to dislike us before we got through the door, she kept walking off mid conversation and only gave one word answers, we ended up walking out before we ordered, it was hard work!

We used the outside seating because we have a dog - service was quick and friendly, but most important the pizzas were very good!

This place serves good pizza but is not friendly to its guests. We had to wait 1.5 hours before getting our food. When we informed the Patron about our situation - the answer was "you did order the wrong things, and you also asked for a starter..." I believe this place need to really think about what impression they want... More
