From time to time, Lake Tahoe welcomes a new restaurant, and along with that comes a new breed, style of sorts, in the dining experience. Capisce is no exception! Capisce Handmade Italian Cuisine and Spirits is rated one of the top Italian restaurants in Lake Tahoe, Capisce has proven itself not only in their amazing home style Italian cooking, but also the friendly faces you will see the second you walk in the door.
Capisce was opened a few years back in the famed Cedar Room location, at 178 US Highway 50 Zephyr Cove in Round Hill and quickly a local hot spot. Warm and inviting, the lighting is always just right, the music playing lightly in the background and the owners themselves (or one of their friendly daughters) greets you. To help start the night off right, one of the experts behind the bar will serve you that glass of pinot you’ve been waiting for, a classic cocktail, or one of the many beers on tap. You can even catch your favorite sports team on one of the flat screen TV’s located behind the bar. Be sure to ask Brian for his top wine pick to pair with the specials for the evening. He balances the homemade lasagna with the best Tuscan wine. Speaking of the lasagna, this dish is the local’s favorite, fresh made every morning by the owner Lisa. If you arrive near closing time, this dish may be sold out but Lisa has been known to whip something up on your request. From the handmade bread served when you sit down to the classic minestrone soup with the Capisce flair, you and all your guests will leave this great Italian eatery with food to take home.
When you mix family friendly, delicious handmade Italian food and beautiful location in the heart of Lake Tahoe, you have found Capisce. Now all that’s left to do is sit back, enjoy your meal and great company that surrounds you.
