Thank You!

We just wanted to thank everyone who has been coming to visit our blog over the past few days.  We’ve only been up and running for 5 days and we are getting more and more people popping over to the site every day!  There has been a lot of interest in our photo gallery which I only added yesterday so hopefully we will be uploading more photos as we get them.  One of the main features in The Ristorante Caprese were the photos on the walls and they are still there although as mentioned before, we did lose some in the flood.  Our customers love coming in and searching for photos of themselves taken 20 years previously and have a good laugh at how they’ve changed!  The big hair and shoulder pads of the 80’s is alive and kicking in our restaurant!  Over the years we’ve had a lot of famous names grace our presence, sadly many of those photos have not survived our numerous floods but the ones that we still have are on our walls and the blog.  The person people seem most impressed with is Lauren Bacall.  I think people imagine we have superimposed her picture next to Costanzo but I promise you she was here!  She was brought in by friends when she was here on a book signing tour and told Costanzo that he should be honoured to have her in his restaurant as she never goes into a restaurant which has stairs (think she has a dodgy hip) but she made an exception for us!  If Costanzo had known that before he would have gladly gave her a “coal carry” up and down the stairs, what a sight that would have been!

Another that people are a bit surprised about is Alice Cooper.  He came in for lunch one day with his daughter before his concert.  It was a bit of a shock for us to have this wild man of rock sitting there eating a plate of pasta, he was actually very normal!  Just after he left, we had a few tables come in who were actually going to his concert and they were devastated when we told them who they had just missed!

So, if you are reading this and have photos of yourself taken in The Caprese, let me know and I will add them to the blog.

That’s all for now, have to get ready for work now but hope you are all enjoying the blog.  Lots of things still to be added so keep watching for new updates.
