History of Capri

World’s Best Pizza

After spending nearly 40 years in the Shore Mall food court, Capri Pizza and Grill has moved to a brand new location on Tilton Road. Owner and founder Rocco has upgraded both his kitchen and the look for his new property, expanding upon his helpful staff and world famous Italian menu.

In addition to all of the past favorites at Capri’s prior residence, Rocco has been steadily expanding the menu as he settles into this new location. His world famous pizzas are made fresh, by hand, every day and are some of his bestsellers, along with the savory strombolis and calzones. Delicious pastas, poultry dishes, a myriad of sandwiches and salads round out his ever growing menu of Italian and American dishes. Everything is cooked to perfection in the brand new kitchen and brought out to you by his friendly staff.

However, as the Shore Mall began to decline and the area became more dangerous, it was time to think about maybe moving Capri to another location. That would become a necessity once plans called for the Shore Mall to be demolished — and there would be no renewing his lease in his famous spot in. With construction calling for the mall to be torn down and rebuilt as an open air mall, Rocco briefly considered returning to New York, unsure of whether his place was still in South Jersey.

Luck would quickly turn in his favor. With the closing of a bakery in the Terra Mar Plaza, Rocco jumped on the chance to move Capri to a more populated and well-traveled area — right along Tilton Road, the main vein of the Atlantic County shore. After closing Capri down in the mall in May 2013, a whirlwind of activity ensued on his new property, re-installing his ovens and grills and completely transforming his new space into a bigger and better Capri Pizza.

Capri reopened in July 2013, and since then, Rocco has seen many of his regulars reappear from the ashes of the mall — and a number of new customers that just happen to be driving by and see his bright blue sign. Word of mouth travels far in our corner of New Jersey and news of the restaurant’s rebirth spread quickly in the area, attracting more customers and drawing compliments of patrons new and old on Capri’s new look and new location.
