    Capri is always a wonderful place to eat. Great food good service. appetizer - grilled calamari was excellent - only complaint was the the entree - Parpadella Boscailola which is a flat pasta that has way too little veal in it - it tasted very good but for $19.95 a few extra slivers would be welcome considering full piece veal entree is only $4 more. Desert include pumpkin gelato with the cheese cake was excellent.

    As always Capri did not disappoint. The calamari was cooked perfectly we ordered both the grilled and batter fried. The special ravioli had pumpkin inside and topped with a light sauce it was delicious! and as always my favorite Rigatoni in Vodka Sauce was as excellent! Our server was great, she attended to us but could see that we were catching up and did not interrupt our conversation. We had a sampling of their desserts and each one was great!

    My husband and I were seated in the garden room, twinkling Italian lights and decor that made us think Italy. The food is delicious and portions are generous enough to share. We had the grilled calamari for an appetizer, the lobster diavolo for dinner, and, of course, tiramisu for desert. Our service was prompt, our table waiting when we arrived, and our server, friendly, professional, and efficient. Even though we were there on a busy Saturday evening, we were never rushed. Capri is high on our favorite list! Highly recommend this restaurant!

    As always, the food at Capri is consistently delicious. It truly is one of the best Italian restaurants in the area. My friend had the special of the day: pumpkin ravioli. Even though there were only 4 to the order, she said they were delicious. I had the cavatelli with spinach and ricotta. My order, on the other hand was so big that I had to take more than half of it home. If possible do sit in the patio area, which is enclosed for the winter. It is far brighter and more open that the tiny, dark, restaurant itself.

    All I can say about Capri is that I feel like I'm walking into a relative's home the way they greet you when you walk in. I'm 100% Italian and I am very critical about the Italian food I eat out. Capri has exceeded my expectations in every way. Food is love to Italians and you can tell that they cook with passion. Every dish that I've tried has been delicious. The portion sizes are perfect.I come here quite often and my favorite waitress is Vicky. We even kiss each other hello like we're family and she takes care of you the same way. GiGi. You and your father are a class act. Thank you for bringing this restaurant to the neighborhood.

    I can simply say they have one of the best alfredo sauce I have ever ate in my life. Their shrimp and scallop fettuccine with alfredo sauce is fabulous. The grilled seafood platter in the appetizers is also very yummy

    Capri is an outstanding restaurant with great food and good service. We've tried almost every kind of dish on the menu from steak to fish to pasta and it's all fantastic. The owner has been in the business for decades and his mother still creates recipes and is an influence in the kitchen - you can taste the quality and care in every dish. Our favorites - any past with seafood, Melrose Peppers when they are on the special menu are not to be missed! I love the pear martini and a number of their signature cocktails. Dine inside or outside - the experience will be great either way.

    I'm actually disappointed at myself for taking this long to find this place. This place delivers on every point:great service, amazing food, sizable portions, and a nice ambiance. What was shocking to us was we ate the night prior at a "4 star" Italian restaurant downtown and spent $135. The next day we had a family dinner here for 5 people and our bill was only $150. My only caution is book reservations ahead of time because this place is jammed on Friday and Saturday nights!

    I treated my daughter to a meal at Capri and she was amazed at how good the food is from the crusty Italian bread and great Olive oil, to her salmon dish with a tomato risotto. I ordered the braciole with the handmade long noodles and red sauce and OMG! I took half of it home and ended up snacking on it the next day and it tasted even better! I have never had a bad meal here. We dined early, which makes it better than waiting for a table because we do not drink. Although, we each enjoyed a glass of chianti!

    The food was good -- the restaurant was very, very warm air conditioning not working very well and our service was not the best. We didn't get any bread, refills for drinks, and I requested in the reservation that it was a special occasion and nothing was done for the occasion. Will not visit again.

    We took 4 of our patients there for Christmas. Hard to hear. Sat in restaurant too, but petty loud. Wednesday night we went for a special occasion. Wanted quiet. Put that note in when requested reserv. on line. Ridiculously Loud...Ruined what was supposed to be a great memory for the 5 of us. Will never return, nor will group members. (All business owners in Burr Ridge as are we) Nonetheless, we tipped well as server was good, took our meals home, and left for Bakers Square. Had coffee/dessert and TYLENOL for headaches. Next time, if you can't handle the reservation request for quiet private area, please respond asap. At one point a drunk lady was going table to table with her friends screaming, high fiving friends. Good party place.

    Did not get to experience Capri because when we arrived just before the reservation time of 7:30 pm on Saturday they did not have the reservation on their books. I had received a confirmation from OpenTable and showed the Hostess. They told me the reservation should not have been accepted and they would do their best to accommodate us (party of 4) as soon as possible but it would be at least an hour. Not sure who's fault the mix up was but we did not stay.

    My girlfriends and I had lunch. The food was very good. Service was very good. Had a problem with the bill, had other guests orders on it but was straightened out quickly. Ambience is conducive for friends getting together as well as romantic dinners. Lighting was low, glad I had my phone so I could see the menu. I would definitely recommend this restaurant

    Our first time here and everything was spot on. Great martinis, good wine choices. We had baked clams and the roasted red pepper apps and they were just delicious. Our waitress was very friendly, did not rush us and gave good entree recommendations. We had the homemade rigatoni with vodka sauce and the eggplant parm. Both were very good. Cannot go wrong with homemade pasta. The menu is extensive and we will defintely go back to try other things. Our reservation time was honored but we did go on a weekday. The outside patio is very lovely. All in all a nice experience.

    Although 3:15 reservations made & confirmed via email an hour later, when we arrived @ Capri, we were told there must be a mistake because they don't open the dining room until 4 p.m on Mondays, but that we could sit in the bar until then; neither of us are drinkers! I showed the hostess our confirmation & she was clueless! She offered to check with the cook what appetizers MIGHT be ready for us to order, but only soup was ready-which neither of us wanted. No other consideration given. We were still waiting to be seated at 4:15 & started noticing others arriving & being seated right away. We had to go back up to her to be seated! Fortunately the food was delicious & our waitress very good--but the beginning almost ruined our experience.

    Delighted with the ability of the outdoor patio to be shielded from a very bad rainstorm that arrived as we did! Lovely setting, good food, very good service, a bit loud, and in the end a bit expensive, but someone else was ordering the bottles of wine, so that may have increased our bill quite a bit beyond what we usually would have paid.

    Don't you love finding a great restaurant in a strip mall? Capri was a great find. Be careful as there is an "express" restaurant in the same strip mall that I think does to go orders. But the real deal is a very nice restaurant - good ambiance and great food
