"People come in here from Italy who can't speak English [and] say the pizza's better than Italy," Caponies co-owner Daniel Lambert says proudly. The Naples-style pizza is indeed a specialty, cooked in two huge wood-fired ovens. The rest of the menu covers all things Italian, from fried calamari to panini to pasta and entrees such as eggplant parmigiana and chicken marsala. Though the restaurant's name has drawn flak from some in the Italian-American community, Lambert says he and co-owner Anthony DiBalsamo are simply trying to reflect the Italian experience in this country. There are framed photos and articles about Al Capone on the walls, but they're accompanied by pictures of John Travolta, Al Pacino, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra, as well as photos of the owners' Italian ancestors.
