We had a blast last night at Capo with Dining Playbook hosts, Billy and Jenny. Dining Playbook airs on NESN every Saturday at 9a.m. (replays every Sunday at 9p.m.). Follow their food adventures on TV!

We were invited for a complementary meal, but we try to stay objective in our review. For the dishes we could find in their online menu, we’ve included the price below.

Pictured above: Salami & formaggi – chef’s selection of artisanal cured meats and cheeses ($16/$28)

+++ Short rib arancini – pulled short rib, fontini, herb aioli ($8) [We couldn’t really taste the short rib and didn’t know it was in the ingredient until we read the description. Nonetheless, they were delicious and reminded us of potato croquette.]

+++ Ricotta crespelle – honey comb, pea shoots, white truffle powder [This was our favourite dish. The ricotta was subtle and not overpowering. We would prefer it if they used truffle oil.]

– – – Grilled pork chop – white bean & mushroom ragout [The pork was tough and dry and was not particularly flavourful. We didn’t like the beans underneath as well.]
