    I wanted to find a new place to eat on my regular visits to South Bend and Capri seemed to just pop up recently. It was a great find, super staff, great food and beautiful place.

  • So much potential...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/3/2014
    I went here with my parents and grandma during a football weekend, and had the absolute worst dining experience of my life. It took over an hour for us to get our appetizer and then another hour to get our entrees. This whole time our waiter was MIA. We had to go to the bar to refill our own water glasses and ask for extra plates for the appetizer. When the entrees did finally come only one of the four was still warm. When we asked to speak with the manager and explained our experience he became very defensive and blamed a large group in his party room as if it was our fault for expecting service anyway. The service all around was terrible from waiter up to manager. The food had potential if it had come hot.

    We were 3 couples celebrating a retirement. It was the 3rd night of work for our waitress. She was poorly trained and was not knowledgeable about the food or wine at all. Any questions we posed required that she run back to the kitchen to ask the cook. (e.g. what's in the stuffed mushroom? What's in the special that you just told us about?, etc) Either the cook didn't process the entire order or she didn't order everything. One person at our table only got part of his appetizer and another didn't get his appetizer at all. When ordering desserts, she only took 4 orders, skipping two people. We had to flag her down to finish our order. Our wine presentation was atrocious. The cork broke off and the waiter took off. We had no idea!

    We had a fabulous time at Capri. We live in Indianapolis and frequent the Capri there. I think that the food was even better in Granger, and it is awesome in Indy. The service was great; our waiter was so attentive.

    Capri Italian Restaurant is a beautifully appointed facility in a brand new building built for the restaurant. The space is clubby and elegant. The chef/manager, Gino, from Rome Italy, presents an authentic Italian menu and delivers in style. The wine list is all Italian, but has a wide selection. I doubt there is another restaurant in the South Bend area which can compete with the elegance and outstanding dining experience that Capri offers. The prices are reasonable, given what is offered. I recommend the restaurant without reservation.

    My new favorite Italian restaurant -- and I'm Italian! The pasta, cheeses and bread are all homemade and that clearly signals the care the chef/owner uses for all of his dishes, his decor, his music and table settings. Full bar - well done; nice wine list and choice of specialty drinks. Nice variety of appetizers and entress -- pasta, beef, veal, chicken, seafoods, etc. Desserts are to die for -- the tiramisu is enough for 2-4 people, but if you're smart you won't share!! Service is attentive without being intrusive- polite, obviously want to please. Chef/owner stops at your table to make sure everything is to your liking. First Class. Love, love, love this hidden gem!

    The food is Great, the one draw back is the service. Our server was pleasant when we could get her over to the table I think everyone at the table finished their water before she even took a drink order. This is our second time there with the same service experience, the food is worth a trip, unfortunately I am not sure the food will be able bring us back for a third due to the poor service.

    Have been to this restaurant a few times in past month and it is never crowded. Very difficult to understand because food, service, and ambience are all excellent. Apparently a sister restaurant in Indy is extremely busy. Maybe they just have better taste there. Beautiful place with an incredible large wooden bar that really is centerpiece of dining room but still seems kid friendly. Service is very efficient without being obtrusive. The food however is the star. Incredible pastas that rival those I have had in Italy. Inventive and perfectly prepared. All hand made at restaurant and it shows. Always several specials that others in my group have ordered and I have sampled, excellent. Can't say enough good things about this restaurant.

    We found this place on "Open Table" and thought we would try it. The reviews I had read had rated it as good to very good. We arrived at about 6:30. The parking lot was about half full. Inside, lots of old world Italian decor. Dark woods, black and white pictures of family and friends on the walls. Linen table cloths. As you enter the dining room, you will note a beautiful bar on the left, one of the nicest ones in the area. I had the OssoBuco and my wife had the Ravioli. Both our entrees were very good. After dinner we had a very nice dessert and coffee. Our dinner cost about $100.00 and included 2 entrees, desert, half bottle of wine and coffee. We will be returning again.

    Took my Mom for a nice dinner and we were seated next to the fireplace with a beautiful fire burning. We were both happy with our drinks and meals. Service was excellent. We were there early, so it wasn't very crowded. I hope this place makes it because we need another upscale italian restaurant with a warm environment. I've had too many bad meals at the place that begins with an "M" at Grape and SR23.

  • Overpriced, decent food
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    Definitely not a place to go spend $100 (for 2) for mediocre food. It wasn't bad, but there's a lot more places you can go for cheaper and enjoy the food a lot more. Our waiter was pretty bad, but that doesn't really bother me much. Several people around us had much worse attitudes about it though. The atmosphere was great and I really wanted to like it, but my pork was dry and the sauce was not very impressive.

    This place is amazing!! Very up class place with true Italians on payroll to make your dining experience the best. Portions at first looked small but I couldn't finish my plate! Rolls are amazing. Anything on the menu you can get in kids portion!! Gorgeous setting! Loved the service everyone was wonderful.

    I was pleasantly surprised on my last visit to Capri. One of the owners has moved from Indy to the area to manage restaurant. Staff was much improved, there was a nice crowd and the food was great as usual. I'm very glad to see the focused attention. Make sure you make a visit to experience Capri.

    Dinner didn't meet expectations. I beleive better Italian food is available in the area. Didn't even have an ice bcket or stand availalbe for wine. Poor waiter had to run back and forth from the bar and we were one of the early couple. The desserts were great. They tried hard but have a kong way to go

    We've been to Capri many times and the food is always great. The servers have gone from people with a lot of experience and attention to detail to very young inexperienced people who need to grow. Every time we go the restaurant is almost empty. I hope they can maintain enough business to stay in the area. We really like the ambience and quality of food, but wish they would bring back the pizza as a starter.

    This was my second experience at Capri. Both have been wonderful. The food is real Italian not Olive Garden's version. I have travelled to Italy and thoroughly enjoyed the food there. This is just as good. The owner Sal was very accommodating to our large group of 11. There is no children's menu but pizza is offered on the appetizer menu. I will return many times as this is the best Italian food I have found ina 100 mile radius.

    Very nice ambience to this restaurant, definitely more of the Italian flare to its menu. Great warmed rolls served. Not a real extensive wine list but it was doable. Has a back room with a patio and full bar set up that would be great for private parties.

    Our food has always been very good. Homemade pastas, several veal dishes, always a good fish selection, white table cloths, beautiful wooden back bar, and paneling throughout, good wine selection, nightly specials added to menu favorites. I mentioned Ind because this second restaurant is owned by the same owner of Capris in Indy, Arturo. When his restaurant was by the same name as his many years ago, I had eaten his Mom's homemade pasta dishes and still can recall how wonderful they were! John was our waiter and he is always conscientious and has a classy understated presence.

    I live in Indianapolis, where my family has enjoyed dining at Capri for many years. I'm often in the South Bend area, and was so happy to hear that Arturo DiRosa opened a sister restaurant in Granger. Last Thursday I entertained a client and her friend, who both pronounced their food to be delicious. They are making plans to return soon with some family members. Great job.
