Lil Capone's Italian Restaurant

This new restaurant is actually owned and run by the same person that had the Pizza restaurant off Cloverdale Road that was beside Kendrick's Spirits and across from Jack's Restaurant.  He moved in order to have a larger restaurant and offer a larger menu as  well as having a bar available. 

All that said I've been twice to the new restaurant and have been extremely satisfied both times.  I've only tried the regular pasta, with the request to melt cheese on top ( Baked Spaghetti that is ) and to me it's the best pasta in town.  I've had very good pasta at Olive Garden, Rising Crust (which was previously owned by this same owner), and Ricatonis but Lil Capone's is a very tasty red sauce and the serving size is very good as well and the cost was around $7.99 for the entrée but was the one without meatballs so if you like or want meatballs then the cost will be slightly higher.  

It also appears that they are doing quite well at the new location, which has been open some 3-4 weeks because they have been on a wait to be seated many of the days we have passed by with their busiest days being Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturday evenings.   As for the only negative thing I could find to comment on it would be their brewed sweet tea.  The one I got had a quirky taste to it and I didn't like it at all but they have Pepsi products as well as other drinks if you don't like the tea.

As always bon appetite.

I've tried to attach a menu but I don't know if it will work.   The attached PDF file should download and bring up each page of their multipage menu.    As for the location I tried to put that in the first paragraph mentioning it was across from Jacks and near Kendrick's Spirits on Cloverdale road.  It's in the same strip mall group of buildings as Fiesta Mexicana and with both Fiesta's crowd and that of Lil Capone's the parking lot gets quite crowded and congested at prime times.

The Shoals Insider just named it the best Italian food in the area, people's choice awards.

But does anyone read the Shoals Insider? They have about one new article a week and you hear about the owner closing it down. Anyway, Capone's is supposed to be really good or has a lot of paid followers.

Little Capone's is extremely good and has great pasta and their prices aren't too bad either.  The owner of Little Capone's also owned Rising Crust Pizza and Hops which is a similar restaurant that is located near the Killen bridge on Florence Blvd in the same building as Fred's Store and where Swamp John's used to be located.  The menu is almost, or is, identical to that of Little Capones but I believe the prices to be a bit higher.  One reason that Rising Crust is so popular is they usually have live entertainment most every night and that seems to bring in a lot of repeat customers.  

I usually choose Rising Crust solely because of the location but I believe that Little Capone's is a bit better in quality and value.

Recratican, exactly what have you head about the SI? You're right that it posts only one or two articles a week, but when PNS tried to buy it, the owner rudely refused.
