Caputo Trattoria is worth going to even if you're not already at Foxwoods Resort Casino. The interior screams Amalfi Coast with its sky blue and lemon striped color palette, making you dream of the sea while you sip one of their Italian inspired cocktails or imported wines.
The menu draws inspiration from the whole country, with dishes like cacio e pepe, a traditional Roman dish that is dramatically served tableside; Sicilian arancini stuffed with red wine braised short rib; and rigatoni bolognese with mascarpone, olives and oregano originating from Bologna. The tablside cacio e pepe puts on a show with a stunning grapa induced flame in a giant wheel of pecorino romano cheese, and ending with a glistening dish of creamy, black pepper laden spaghetti.
The space accommodates large groups well, with several spacious booths and a large banquette, making it the perfect place for a party. There are even dishes large enough to be shared, like their Caputo pizza, a large chicken parmesan that is treated like a pizza and topped with marinara, mozzarella and hot honey, and can be split between 2-8 people. Or their herb roasted veal chop, which when ordered alongside a few small plates would make the perfect dish to split on a date.
All of their pasta is made in house, as is their limoncello, which each guests receives a gratuitous shot of at the end of their meal along with a tiramisu flavored cone of cotton candy.
