NEW ITALIAN RESTAURANT COMING TO LANSDOWNE TOWN CENTER

Il Cappero will take over the spot formerly occupied by Not Your Average Joe’s.

A new Italian restaurant is setting up shop in the Lansdowne Town Center just off Route 7 at Belmont Ridge Road. It’s called Il Cappero, which means “the caper” in Italian.

The owners behind Il Cappero are experienced restauranteurs with a chain of popular restaurants in Maryland called New York J&P Pizza. They also have an Italian restaurant called Manalu in Frederick, Md.

The new restaurant is described as a full-service, sit down family style restaurant specializing in dishes from southern Italy. Il Cappero is taking over the former Not Your Average Joe’s spot, across the street from Ford’s Fish Shack. They hope to open in March.

This is the second new restaurant we’re eagerly waiting for in the center. As The Burn previously reported, T’Kila Latin Kitchen & Bar is also headed to the LTC soon.

    Excellent news! I hope this place is good. We are short on good Italian restaurants in Loudoun County. There are good places to take kids/casual pizza nights- Giovanni’s, the place near Wegman’s in Leesburg is pretty good too, and my favorite is a little place in Ashburn that I shall not name because it’s a hidden gem. Another option will help!

    This article is confusing since it says that the new Italian Restaurant is going in the vacated Not Your Average Joe site, but it shows pictures of that site with a Kitchen and Bar signage. Which restaurant is going in this site and where is the other restaurant going in?

      The Kitchen & Bar sign *is* Not Your Average Joe’s. That is the spot where the new restaurant will be opening.

        When I clicked on message to read more, I saw you website with more information and pictures. In that website, you said and I quote “This is the second new restaurant we’re eagerly waiting for in the center. As The Burn previously reported, T’Kila Latin Kitchen & Bar is also headed to the LTC soon.” In the picture above it, the picture shows the old “Not Your Average Joe’s” restaurant with a sign above the awning that says “Kitchen and Bar”. So I thought your reference to the new restaurant called T’Kila Latin Kitchen and Bar was the same as the signage in the picture. So I will ask again, where is the T’Kila Latin Kitchen and Bar going in if it is not going in at the old “Not Your Average Joe’s” location?
