    The food at Ana Capri is Outstanding however the service was terrible. We went for a group lunch a friend that is retiring. Only half of our group was given menus. We then had to share menus and wait 20 minutes for the host to bring out more menus. It then took a very long time for the waiter to bring out drinks and bread. We had to ask twice for straws and balsamic. I have goon here may times before with my husband and in groups and never had an issue with service. I would not recommend Ana Carpi for lunch again.

    I was hoping the food would be a bit more flavorful, especially the pasta. The lasagna was alright, the meat sauce that came w the tortellini was really good but did quite make up for the plain tasting stuffed tortellini. The lamb chops were tasty and tender. Great wine list.

    Their eggplant parmesan is outstanding !!!! We had a delicious glass of Chianti followed by a very fresh Caesar salad. They even put a real anchovy in the salad. No bottle dressing here. Then we had the eggplant which is perfectly cooked, The servings are generous and we took food home for lunch .We have since gone back and have not been disappointed.

    We ate here after our God-daughter's baptism. The food was highly forgettable, unfortunately! We had Lentil soup, which was the highlight of our meal. Our main dishes of Chicken Marsala and Chicken Parmesan lacked tenderness and depth. Our group's other members left over their food, and our hope for dessert was dashed when the tiramisu seemed at least 1 day old, and had no pop of flavor. We feel that this location will be an anchor to the Pinecrest Anacapri, which we have enjoyed on many previous occasions.

  • Not Ready for Miami Spice

    Dined on 8/2/2014
    My wife and I went here the first Saturday during Miami Spice month. I am not sure if this restaurant has participated in previous years, but I do not think this place was ready for it. The restaurant was full and seemed understaffed. The service suffered greatly because of it. They did not have the ossobuco, which to me was the best entree choice on the Miami Spice menu. We ordered our food and waited over 45 minutes before we received it. They served us our entrees, and the busboy was surprised when we said that we have yet to receive our appetizers. The food was not the long wait nor the poor service. If you are looking for a good Miami Spice restaurant, look elsewhere.

    We had our wedding reception at Anacapri on Ponce three years ago and have come back each year on our annivesary to celebrate and received VIP treatment as always. The veal francese over a bed of spinach was amazing and my wife tried a daily special of shrimp and aspargus ravioli that was also out of this world. Service was impeccable, it always is.

    We had a table for 6 - birthday celebration - everyone thought their dinner was exceptional, service was attentive without being overbearing, food, drinks and wine came promptly - all-in-all a great evening. As someone who dines out constantly, I have one suggestion - I wish all restaurants with hard surfaces would look into ceiling sound baffles to lower the din. As the restaurant fills up, diners start to speak louder and louder in order to be heard by their fellow diners - the din becomes so distracting that one can barely focus on the food regardless of how good it is.

    Since dining at this restaurant, I have gone back twice and enjoyed it as much as the first time. The portions are huge and this is a family style restaurant. By far, the best eggplant parmigiani I had in years. My dining partners concurred. The Ceasar salad was delicious and the wine selections excellent. This is one of my new favorite restaurants!! The wait staff is very attentive even during the finals of the World Cup.

    Loved this place. We were a party of 4 on a Sunday Evening and the place was very quiet! Maybe two other tables were occupied. Can't say it was romantic because it was very bright even after the sun went down we still noticed a lack of that Italian feel we look for in Italian restaurants. Food was great. I didn't see any vodka sauce dishes on the menu. But the chef put together a penne ala vodka that was quite exceptional. We spent right at $100 for 4 people so prices weren't bad. We will go back on our next trip to Miami.

    It was the third time in two years that we've dined at Anacapri and the manager, Elias, and his staff remembered us and treated everyone like family. We never visit without having Fiocchi or trying a different bottle of wine from their extensive list. It has become a staple special occasion location.

    I went here for Valentines day and the service was top notch and very nice. The food took my heart to places I never thought food could take it. The chicken, the pasta, the sauces, the tomatos, the salad, the eggplant, the olives, the mushrooms, and of course the desert were prepared, cooked, and served with perfection. I will be going back again and again. Highly recommended spot!

    First time visiting for my wife and me, but had a great experience. They had a special 4-course menu for Valentines Day dinner, which was delicious (the regular menu looked great too). Very nice wine selection by-the-glass... I had a Louis Martini Cabernet and my wife had a glass of Piper Heidsieck champagne. Friendly hostesses and waiter. A rose for all the ladies was a very nice detail too. Will definitely go back.

    The ambiance and service were fine but that's where the good news ends. We had three dishes and could not imagine staying for desert after that. While the fried calamari appetizer was little more than acceptable, the Bucatini Amatriciana pasta sauce was a glop of who-knows-what which tasted stale and confused and nothing like Amatriciana sauces from good Italian restaurants. While the Eggplant Parmigiana which followed looked pretty as plated, the eggplant was barely seasoned and the sauce was rather ordinary. So, the best that can be said is "diner beware."

    I ordered a pasta filled with pears and 4 cheeses. It was light and full of flavor. My friend ordered riggitoni and enjoyed her entrée immensely. The mozzarella appetizer was not well balanced. Great flavours. The strawberry drizzle was a delightful contrast to the cheese. Overall, food was incredible.

    The food is excellent, but either take a big appetite or split dishes with your companion(s). The wines by the bottle are numerous and cover all price points. Surprisingly, though, the wines by the glass, especially the whites, are disappointing.
