A word from Capri Italian Restaurant - Indianapolis
The Capri Ristorante is owned and operated by an Italian family who came to the United States after working for ten years in the hospitality industry aboard a cruise ship. After settling in Indianapolis at the age of twenty-eight he worked in an Italian restaurant on Michigan Road. The Capri Restaurant established in 1951 then owned by two Greek brothers became available and he wasted no time in buying it. After remodeling he had created an Italian Restaurant with a warm and inviting atmosphere located conveniently on the North side of Indianapolis serving traditional Italian fare at reasonable prices. The Capri Ristorante serves a delicious lunch daily from 11am until 4pm. Dinner is served daily from 4pm until close. We offer carry-out, catering and our facility is available to host your banquet or special event.

    The most authentic Italian restaurant we have visited. The carbonara and the saltimbocca were both outstanding. The wait staff was very accommodating as neither of these dishes were on the menu.

    I came to Capri first with a group of wonderful fellow Italophiles for a meetup. I decided to come back with family to celebrate my birthday and it was another outstanding experience. Amazing food, friendly and attentive (but not intrusive) service and calm, quiet ambience. I would definitely recommend dining at Capri Ristorante!

    I picked this place since we were in the neighborhood for and use Open Table frequently. Upon checking in for our 6 PM rsvp, I was asked by the Maitre D "Open Table?" When I said yes, we were immediately escorted to the worst table in the place. A 4 top in the middle of the room, hard by the ice and glasses station (so much for a quiet, romantic evening with my wife). While I was away from the table she insisted we be moved and were moved to a 2 top in another part of the room where we became invisible for the next 30 minutes! When we arrived, there were only two or three tables taken in the entire place. Food was OK, wine list mediocre at best. Never had this problem with OT anywhere else. Wont go back, treated well in other venues

    This was our 2nd visit to Capri and we were amazed by the amazing, authentic food and ambience both visits. The food is outstanding, from the antipasto to the delicious cannoli and espresso....we don't have a single complaint! The staff treats you like family with the utmost respect. It is definitely a hidden gem that we are blessed to have found!

  • Party of 5
    domesticdebVIP
    Dined on 1/17/2014
    When we arrived, we were a bit disappointed to see that they had not prepared a table for our party of 5. There were very few people there so it wasn't as if they were too busy to pull several tables together ahead of time. I don't know if they didn't think we'd show or what, but it made us feel a bit unwelcome for our first dining experience. Fortunately, our server, Paris, and the food were wonderful, and made up for any error of preparation on the restaurant's part. By the time we left, the restaurant was packed and had a wonderful vibe to it. We would definitely return.

    The food is always fantastic and there's just something about this place that makes it "feel" right. There is just some kind of "old world" charm to this restaurant that, combined with the excellent food, makes it my favorite Italian restaurant in the Indy area.

    Our first night out after a miserable cold dreary week in Jan. What a nice find, probably the best Italian restaurant in Indianapolis. Tucked into a very non- descipt mini- mall off 71st street this is a very good restaurant with the potential to be excellent. The only thing, in mho, holding it back, is the rather small and off beat wine list and that the food could be served hotter. My veal was Luke warm making it a tad gummy, and the veges had too much oil on them. Otherwise, our experience was good.

    Friends of ours had recommended Capri several times this past summer and we'd never made it over. While it's a little out of the way, near a Wal-Mart off of Keystone, it's well worth the drive over. Our food was phenomenal. I had the Gnocchi and usually after about 15 potato dumplings, you're wishing you had something with more flavor, but not here. The sauce and the texture of the Gnocchi were both excellent and very tasty. My wife had the special, which was a pumpkin ravioli with a venison meat sauce. A little risque for my blood but she said it was excellent. The Tortufo was also very good for desert. Service was good, reasonably priced and the ambience is excellent. We'll go back again. I highly recommend it.

    Best Italian food we have ever had in Indiana and we have lived here for 30+ years. The ambience is outstanding and my wife said it reminded her of a Italian place on the East coast that she absolutely loved. The food is authetic and the service is outstanding. Great place for a anniversary or date. The wine list was full of outstanding choices also. I would stay away from this place if you have kids its not the kind of place you would want them.

    I made a 6:00 dinner reservation during North Side Nights. The only times available were prior to 6:00 or after 8:30. When we arrived, we were immediately seated indoors. The interior of the restaurant was almost empty. The patio was about half full. We weren't even given option of seating outside. By the time we left approximately 7:30, the dining room was barely half full. Our waiter's attitude seemed to also change once we asked to see the event menu. We certainly felt like second class citizens. My understanding was that North Side Nights was a promotion to gain new customers. Capri failed! We won't be coming back!

    As a former rest mgr bartender/server I know to which I speak. I love this restaraunt because of the food. The service this visit was very disappointing. We had a early Resevation, 1 table in restaraunt Nearly 5 minto"order drinks ", more time for a "special menu" Bar and kitchen were terrific , received fast and perfect. Waiter was disconnected (we were his ONLY" table) Only 4 tables in fine dining area, 3 waiters. Support staff, to assist was not interested. The waiter seemed more concerned that our tip,might not get high enough, than providing a nice experience. I will try again, but if service does not improve, and proactively make the experience, I'm afraid the food , can only carry them so far in this highly competitive market

    Never had a bad meal or bad service. We love the pasta because its homemade and the sauce tastes delicious. I enjoy a nice glass of red wine & my husband enjoys beer, whatever the server recommends. They were out of tiramisu so had several replacements which were choc or lemon cake & 3 of chose chocolate cake & was disappointed cause there wasn't much cake to it, some sort of fluffy cream drizzled w choc Other choice was cannoli's which my husband enjoyed. I just don't enjoy real sweet desserts.

    Though the food is better or comparable to places like maggiano's and other locally owned Italian places, it is just over priced. Maggiano's seemed cheap compared to Capri. We ate on the Northside Nights menu, which made it affordable, but the prices really need to drop 5 - 10 dollars an entrée to compete with other places. It really was fantastic though an I enjoyed everything I ate.
