El Capitan – Florence
Time to get acquainted with Alfredo, Rossini, linguini and fettuccini. Home cooking includes Italian sauces, pastas, sausage and meatballs at this Florence County supper club that the Fontecchio family began in 1959.
A taste of Capistrano doesn’t mean sacrificing thick chops, golden-brown fish or other traditional supper club fare. But expect spaghetti or gnocchi as side choices in addition to baked potatoes and fries. Save room for house-made tiramisu at the third-generation business.
