RESTAURANT OF THE WEEK
A PERSONAL REVIEW OF RESTAURANTS AROUND THE WORLD

CAPONE'S
RODNEY BAY, ST. LUCIA

This is kind of like two restaurants in one.  They've got a little open air pizza shop and ice cream parlor up front and serve Italian in the inner portion of the establishment.  It's the Italian that should guide you to this place.

Capone's is named after the famous Chicago gangster Al Capone and serves up some really nice Italian food.  Waiters are dressed as mobsters and when it comes time to pay up, your bill is brought to the table in a violin case.

You can have a traditional Italian meal here beginning with a pasta starter and then move on to a main course of meat or fish.  Or, you can do it like most Americans and order a pasta dish as your main meal.

Members of our party had a various assortment of pastas, a filet mignon and chicken parmesan and they were all great. 

At the end of the meal, we paused at the ice cream stand so the kids could get a cone.

Capone's is located nearly right across the street from several hotels including the Royal St. Lucian and that's good.  And that's bad because hotels attract vendors.  During our brief stay, we were bugged to death by "ganga" (dope) salesmen.  They would literally follow us across the street from the hotel trying to sell us dope, hats, and aloe and then wait until we were done with dinner and follow us back to the hotel.  It was so bad that we only spent one night at the hotel and then fled for another island.  Hopefully something has been done about these bad boys by now!
