    I took my wife for her 30th birthday, and we arrived at the restaurant, the host wasn't there, the place is to dim, you need to use your flashlight app to see the menu, my plate was very good, but my wife wasn't the pasta was ardente but the sea food was overcooked! ! I ordered a coffee and the cup had a lips stick mark. But the server his name was Ricardo woooowwww deserve a 5 star he always was attended to us and he knew the menu and his recommendation pay off!!! In conclusion for me was an overrated restaurant!

    Anacapri has been a consistently good restaurant for years. There pasta dishes ate varied and excellent. The deal of the century is Tuesday night's when all of their pasta dishes are $10. My favorite is the Neptune salad. It is enough for a meal. Freshly made seafood chilled and marinated in lemon juice. It's a can't miss dining spit with great service and reasonable prices.

    The Burrata was delicious! Profiteroles were average. Their lobster risotto was good, but in my experience, no place has surpassed the risotto I've had at Cafe Vialetto. Excellent and notable wine list offered. I would return.

    make reservations or not, there seems to be a conspiracy in this place. I am or was a regular client. I could never get a table by the window. The same situation every time that we go. Yesterday (10-6-2014) we went to celebrate for dinner. THE PLACE WAS EMPTY, not one soul. We asked for a table by the window,...reserved. It was 645pm. They had the table for a group that usually shows up on Mondays. No sign on the table and not even sure if they were going to show up or not. Great food, great location, lousy public relations approach. I won't be goind back for a while. There is another on NW 7 St and 57 Ave. Location not as good but great food and service.

    When you can't hear your table mates because of the surrounding noise, dinner becomes uncomfortable. If you shout to be heard then other tables will be moved to shout even louder. We really weren;t interested in the subjects at adjoining tables, but were forced to hear.

    Excellent food. Prepared perfectly. Service was good, however, not outstanding. Servers could be a bit more attentive to guest needs (pepper mill, and Parmesan should not have to be asked for--repeatedly). All in all, the Italian food was right on. Highly recommended.

    Enjoyed a business dinner, party of 3 on a Tues night at Anacapri. The setting is very pleasant and a decent crowd for Tues in September. All food was well received and special praise for Snapper Francese as it was very flavorful, well prepared and not at all soggy. Enjoyed a nice 2008 Brunelo wine recommended by our waiter. Very pleasant evening.

    Some Coral Gables restaurants have a reputation for being "snobby", not this restaurant! We had a wonderful dinner meal off the Miami Spice dinner menu, we were seated promptly, and our meal was served without a flaw. The only minor glitch was in securing salt for the table. It took two requests. The meals (Lamb & fish) were served as ordered, and all were exceptional. The Cheese appetizer was unexpectly sweet, no bad, just unanticipated. Once we adjusted our expectation, the dish was delightful. Also, two members in our party have hearing issues - even with a very crowded bar area about seven feet away, due to the finishes in the restaurant, our table was both quiet and intimate. We appreciated it and will return.

    It's rare to find any public place in South Fla that has the warmth of a friendly home, thoughtful and attentive service, where the word "no" isn't in their lexicon. Well, Anacapri in the Gables is such a rare place, and I've not even mentioned the consistently delicious food, a wide selection of classic Italian dishes, pastas, salads, and desserts. I've become a frequent visitor and will return many more times, with friends and family. Highest possible recommendation!

    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.
