Capitol Restaurant, located by The Embassy, serves Italian style dishes designed to take full advantage of local produce and influences.
Capitol Restaurant won "Outstanding Restaurant" at the Capital Awards 2012.
Based on a classical Italian style, Capitol's food is fresh, pure and uncluttered. The menu is based in classical Italian style but is strongly seasonal and designed to take full advantage of local New Zealand produce and influences.
The Capitol dining room is warm and vibrant, packed every evening with locals and regulars who may down a Martini at the bar, grab an easy dinner on their way home from work or come in to celebrate a special occasion.
Giant windows open to reveal the bustle and energy of downtown Wellington.
The list is carefully composed with wines to coif or match with food.
Walk-in for dinner, or make a reservation for lunch.
Capital Awards 2012 Winner: Outstanding Restaurant; & Outstanding Front of House Team.
Dominion Post's David Burton: 4.5 stars
