Café, Trattoria & Beer Garden


Step into the Capitano restaurant and enjoy the bold, aromatic flavours of Northern Italy. Our homestyle cooking is inspired by tradition and made using only the freshest, local produce.

Choose from authentic thin-crust pizzas, rich pastas and tender meat dishes. Why not try our Rigatoni with braised lamb shoulder and rosemary or our traditional Pollpette Al Sugo – that’s Italian meatballs cooked in Napoli sauce and soft polenta.

Our restaurant offers fine dining, without the fine dining pretense. It’s good food, and good people. A place to relax, eat and enjoy with friends, coworkers or clients.

Beer Garden

One of Flinders Lane’s best kept secrets; our secluded, open-air beer garden is the perfect place to escape the bustle of the city.

We offer a range of beer and cider – including Asahi on tap. As well as classic cocktails, spirits, bubbly and of course a selection of local and imported wines.

Happy Hour is every Thursday and Friday from 5 till 9pm: featuring discounted drinks and free live entertainment. Ideal for post-work drinks!

Capitano Beer Garden


Our cafe is open from 7am, serving traditional Italian cappuccino, cafe latte and espresso. We use Lavazza coffee beans, which are known for their robust flavour and delicate aroma.

We offer toasted pastries for a hot breakfast on-the-go, as well as a range of house-made mueslis and freshly-squeezed juices.

You can also enjoy a relaxed sit-down breakfast in our casual dining area – our chef would be more than happy to make you a fluffy cheese omelette.
