“Mexican Restaurant - Fantastico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

Our Family goes to LaCapilla at least twice a month. They have great service, yummy margaritas and Mexican food that is savory. The serving size is a good amount of food and we always leave with a full belly. The price is affordable and the food never disappoints.

“Good, Old Time Favorite”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2013

La Capilla is a good Mexican restaurant that has been around forever. It is always busy. The food is good, dependable. There are no surprises. The location is great in old town. The restaurant is dark and noisy. The service is good. The margaritas are really good. We started with Mexican shrimp cocktails with lots of shrimp. I had the chicken chimichanga. It was big and tasty. Others had the flautas and combination plates. It is not knock your socks off great, but dependable. You won't get a bad meal.

“Great drinks but bus-boy do not clean your table..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2013

Great location :Old Torrance,I like the booth and the fact it is pretty dark inside;great drinks there and good food; but do not expect the bus-boy to remove most of the empty plates or glasses from your table:at the end we had our 5 margarita glasses (empty ) at our table,our meal plates (empty) on the table,our dessert plate (empty) on the table and our 2 water glasses plus salsa and chips plates,we stay for about 1.20 and our table was a big mess..Very strange..But again great values for the drinks!

“Authentic Mexican food in Old Town Torrance”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2013

This place has been around a long time. Many people had given it good word of mouth reviews. I expected more than we got. The decor was very dark. Service and food good but not exceptional. Margaritas ok.
