If you’ve been to Stefano’s Grill located in the Marketplace you may be familiar with our beloved Chef Stefano. He is the typical food loving, outgoing, Italian family man; and our very own semi-celebrity. His partner in dine, and another town favorite, is his wife, Mary.

The incredible opportunity came to extend their love to Windermere and thus, donning the maiden name of his beloved wife, Caprino’s Italian opened in July of 2015. Since then, the restaurant has made extraordinary improvements fueled by the passion of loving owners.


This passion is seen through the owners’ interactions with their customers both live and online. If you frequent Caprino’s, chances are either owner has approached you right at your table to assure your experience is up to their standard and yours. Online, reviews are monitored and taken to heart. A negative review is not disputed, but rather Mary and Stefano look into what happened and make the right changes, even thanking the reviewer for their feedback – what an incredible way to run a restaurant! Customers come first, with that comes quality food and service.

Their love for each other, for business, for their customers, and what they do is what makes this restaurant truly special.
