Cappelletti Restaurant in Sag Harbor first opened its doors in 2006. Included in its design feature was a separate take-out area, in addition to the dining area. Now, as all restaurants move to takeout or delivery only, the Cappelletti take-out counter is fully functional seven days a week.
The restaurant is currently offering a full menu with a range of options, beyond the pasta. It fulfils all cravings: cheeseburgers, black Angus steak, lamb chops, chicken. Enjoy its seafood choices of flounder, salmon, shrimp, steamed clams, mussels, and calamari. Dive into the risotto, a salad, pizza, and its notable focaccia sandwiches. Each entree is served with homemade garlic rolls.
For those planning ahead, or who are quarantining with a bigger bunch, there’s also the catering menu — think trays of deliciousness that last the whole week. Wash it all down with a beer, wine, and even a mixed drink. All of this available for home and curbside delivery. Customers are allowed in the take-out area but the limit is two people at a time.
“We are taking extra measures to keep our clients and staff safe,” owner Robin Tagliasacchi said. All staff members wear masks and gloves. All commonly touched surfaces, such as touch screens, credit card keypads, and door knobs, are constantly sanitized. “Even the pens get sanitized after each customer uses them,” Tagliasacchi noted.
Cappelletti also assures all employees that there will be no layoffs, keeping up company morale.
“I have to say that the customers have been so generous toward our employees. They express their gratitude verbally that we are open, they are showing their gratitude in more practical ways to our staff . . . it gives the employees a good feeling that what they are doing, showing up to work every day without fail, is a valuable contribution to people’s lives at this time,” Tagliasacchi said. “We are so very proud of our staff. They are strong wonderful, people with that New York spirit — pushing on and taking care of their families as best they can.”
Hours of operation are Monday through Saturday 11 AM to 10 PM and Sunday 11 AM to 9 PM. Visit online at www.cappellettirestaurant.com.
