Caputo, the six-month-old Neapolitan pizza restaurant, will close its doors after dinner Friday, April 22. The pizza- and pasta-heavy spot earned critical acclaim from Chron critic Michael Bauer, who gave the young restaurant 2.5 stars last December.
Unfortunately that wasn't enough to lift the alleged curse of the space, located on a more remote stretch of the Embarcadero, and which was once home to the Slanted Door. Partners Shah Bahreyni and Sam Ramadan (also the chef, and a certified maker of Neapolitan pizza) cited financial reasons for the closure, according to Inside Scoop.
The partners also own Boca Pizzeria and Boca Tavern in Marin, which will now be their sole focus. Stay tuned for the future of that space— Bahreyni says that they're deciding whether to liquidate the restaurant or put it up for sale. Best of luck to the new tenants.
