Last year, he opened Capra's Kitchen, a casual Italian eatery in his hometown of Mississauga, Ontario

Capra is also a cookbook author. Three Chefs: The Kitchen Men, which he co-wrote with Michael Bonacini and Jason Parsons, took the gold in cookbook category of the Canadian Culinary Book Awards (now called Taste Canada - The Food Writing Awards). He is also the author of One Pot Italian Cooking and serves as the editor for Canadian Home Trends Magazine

On Canadian TV, Capra hosts his own show, Gourmet Escapes, is a regular guest expert on CityLine talk and lifestyle show, chef host of Restaurant Makeover on the Food Network and now a judge on Chopped Canada
