Another good dinner at Capri
We enjoyed dining on the terrace at Capri Saturday night. The pastas were very fresh and desserts were wonderful. Tiramasu was very large and we had the Trio of Gelato. Our waitress was efficient and cheerful. Such good food and service makes us more inclined to keep going back there for dinner.

Food was FANTASTIC! We booked based on recommendations on Open Table and they were right on.... Calamari was about the best we have had....anywhere. Homemade rigatoni with vodka sauce - full of flavor and melt in your mouth creamy. Recently moved from Boston and often ate in the North End there....this is a good as any Italian I have had... Highly recommend! Only drawback was that we were looking for a quiet - romantic type of setting - but their popularity and layout made that virtually impossible. Staff was amazing....knowledgeable....friendly and accommodating. We will definitely return.....often.

The food and service are consistent
The food and service are consistently excellent. All four of us loved our dishes. It was my first time trying the tilapia....I will get it again!

Best Italian Food!
Although we had to wait 15 minutes to be seated (even with the reservation), it was worth the wait! We stood near the bar area and could tell because of the packed restaurant and noise level that the food would be outstanding & it was! It was our first time there except for my son....this is a favorite place for him & it was his birthday. Loved everything from the wine, to the appetizers, to the main courses and dessert. Best Italian food (and we are Italian) Wait staff was excellent! Only complaint was our table of 6 had a hard time hearing one another until some of the tables cleared out later. Next time we will have to go earlier or later if we want to talk!

great italian food
Capri is consistently great! The food is delicious and for this summer they have excellent sangria. Outdoor dining is a great experience.

We picked Capri because my wife and I drove down to visit the Kohler Spa in Burr Ridge, and the Capri was a short walk away. Wow did we find a GEM! The ambiance was wonderful, the staff was so friendly and courteous -- we were greeted by a gentleman that opened the door upon our arrival, the hostess treated us like we were family, the bartender lit the whole room with her smile, and our waitress treated us like we owned the joint! But if that weren't enough, the extensive menu offered so many choices in entrees, appetizers, salads, pastas and more -- and none of the boring "same old Italian" at Capri -- a very innovative menu that certainly didnt disappoint -- our meal was FANTASTIC! Thankfully portions are large so we had leftovers!

FRIENDS NIGHT OUT
I HAVE BEEN TO THIS RESTAURANT MANY TIMES BUT NEVER SAT ON THE ENCLOSED PATIO/DECK. THE WEATHER WAS PERFECT. THERE WAS A NICE BREEZE. OUR WAITRESS WAS HELPFUL, VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE OF THE MENU. I CHOSE SOMETHING I HAD NEVER HAD BEFORE AND IT WAS GREAT. MY FRIENDS WERE ALSO VERY PLEASED WITH THEIR EVENING SPECIAL -- I BELIEVE IT WAS THE ASIAGO GNOCCHI. SANGRIA WAS THE SPECIAL DRINK OF THE NIGHT AND I CHOSE THE RED AND ONE OF MY FRIENDS THE MANGO. BOTH WERE VERY GOOD. ALL IN ALL EVERYTHING WAS GREAT -- AS I'VE COME TO EXPECT EACH TIME I HAVE LUNCH OR DINNER HERE.

We had a wonderful evening at Capri! The food was outstanding and our service was top-notch. We requested to sit outside and were accommodated. The outdoor area has a wonderful ambiance, it's hard to imagine you are in a strip mall. I highly recommend sitting outside as the restaurant itself is quite crowded and noisy. Love this place and will definitely be back!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is one of my favorite restaurants as well as my daughters who was celebrating her 18th birthday. Of all the restaurants that she could of picked from this is her favorite!
Thank you for a great experience.

Night out with our Teenagers
We celebrated our daughter's 17th birthday at Capri. We had four teenagers in our group along with my spouse and myself. I made an online reservation at Open Table and our table was ready upon arrival. We were seated in a semi-private nook at the back of the restaurant which was very nice. It was by the kitchen so there was constant activity surrounding us (which is why I didn't give it 5 stars for ambience). Our waitress was wonderful. The bus boys were very attentive - we never had an empty glass at any time. The food was excellent and they give you generous portions. They have an extensive wine list, but since I was there with teenagers, I didn't order any wine tonight. We live an hour away from Capri. It was definitely worth the trip.

The staff here makes you feel like you've come home to your own little neighborhood gem!

I booked a reservation for 12 for a family get together and we had a fantastic experience! One of the owners greeted us and introduced his mother to us. Right away we knew this was the REAL DEAL! This was NOT Maggiano's. My wife had the lobster ravioli in the vodka sauce and it was absolutely delicious! I had the veal Giuseppe with eggplant. You could cut the veal with a fork. If you like calamari, try the one in olive oil. Best calamari I've ever had. All of the pasta is homemade. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. It was worth the drive from Glenview and I'm sure we'll be back. A+++ Bravo!
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
I went with my wife. We had soup, appetizer then pasta as the main course. It was a very nice meal. Dessert was awesome. I had ice cream. It is slightly more pricey compared to similar standard Italian restaurant. But still it is a nice experience

one of our favorites
We've never been disappointed when dining at Capri! Great menu selection, amazing service, and always lively!
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our group had the special halibut, which was fantastic. We also had bacalao which was perfect! We started dinner with the grilled seafood platter which also was perfectly cooked & served! Just fantastic evening!
8/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
We can always count on Capri for excellent service, food and drink.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Once again Capri didn't let us down. We went with out of town guests and they LOVED the food. Chicago does some of the best Italian food. Impressive without being outrageously expensive.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food! Great menu! Great
Great food! Great menu! Great specials such as Braciole and pasta with pork neck bones. Comfort food!

We loved it and will definitely return.

Overall we had a very pleasant time. Food was very good and the service was excellent.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Energetic atmosphere. Very crowded, almost packed in. Baked clams not so good, but everything else we ordered was great. Server was clearly busy and not particularly friendly but efficient enough. Would come back. Nice place to go with friends.

Food was Excellent
I took my firend here for her BDay and we ordered our favorite Chicken Marsala it was the best ever! The Marsala sauce was excellent and the amount of food was great! It came with a salad that also had an excellent dressing and the dessert was to die for!
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had the grilled seafood platter, which was perfectly done. Absolutely delicious .
My husband had the grilled lamb chops, which were grilled to perfection, & he loved. I had the 'ricette orrechete with ripini & crumbled Italian sausage, which was the best I have ever had. Plenty of garlic & olive oil. Everything was delicious & served timely, without being rushed.
9/11/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food and friendly service but Capri needed to lower the volume of the music and possibly put the tables further apart. It was too easy to hear everyone's conversations.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Girls friends out for a group birthday dinner. We had a wonderful time and our waiter Oscar was so attentive and accomaditing.
We will be back.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food--Loud and Crowded
This has been a hot spot for years as the food is phenomenal--service is good, if you can get a table. Tables are small and tight and the noise level is off the charts. Glad they are on OpenTable - before you would have a reservation and still wait an hour. Prob why I haven't been here for three years!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We chose Capri to celebrate an engagement with a group of 6. Service and food were both great, and they offer a variety of good desserts to celebrate a special occasion. I would also recommend my entree, the eggplant parmesan. One of the best I've had!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. We had a group of eight (including two children). The portions were large. I loved the bow-tie pasta that was served as a side dish. We are getting another group together and plan on dining at Capri.

A bit of Italy in Burr Ridge, IL
loved everything about this little gem...excellent food, service & wine!! will definately return :)
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Favorite Italian place never fails!
Mama was in the kitchen tonight and you could tell! Everything went from A+ to A+++. This family knows Italian food and service! Calamari alla Capri (lemon oil and red pepper) is always a nice change from typical calamari everyone else has. Eggplant parm lived up to reputation. We've never had a bad meal! Service tonight was off. Waiter welcomed us to Tuscany (in Oak Brook). That was beginning of confusion for rest of night. He clearly didn't know menu, he never asked if I wanted more wine, when we asked to see what was for dessert he brought us the check. Despite the confusing service, I will definitely go back to Capri. This waiter not typical. I've been following this family's restaurants around Chicagoland for over 20 years.

The lunch we had was outstanding and our server was awesome. Capri never disappoints!!
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been to Capri several
I've been to Capri several times and absolutely love the restaurant. The food is alway great and we've had great servers. Our server the other night was "Vickey" and we want to have her as a server for an upcoming gathering for a group around XMAS. I'll keep coming to Capri and recommending to everyone looking for a great place to go.

Dinner for 4
Met with friends for dinner on a Saturday night. Waited no more than 5 minutes with reservations. Bar crowded/standing room only. Food and service both EXCELLENT. Loads of options on the menu. We will be back!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great atmosphere, so many
Great atmosphere, so many menu options and the food taste great. (The best chicken parmesan I ever had).
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
We arrived early and our table was ready which was great. Our server was an older gentleman who's name I cannot recall, sorry. He was excellent and made our visit fun. The place was very loud but we were able to carry on conversation without a problem. I was the only drinker and had 2 nice glasses of Cabernet. The Calamari appetizer was shared and everyone enjoyed it. It was light and tender. We had 2 seafood entrees and the mussels, clams, squid and fish was fresh and tender. The Lobster Ravioli was devoured.
My eggplant Parmesan was tender and hearty, my only complaint is that it was room temperature. Everyone else at the table were expressing how hot their food was and mine was lukewarm. Overall a great experience.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great place to eat and share good time with the family!!! Great atmosphere, nice staff, good real Italin food.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Food - tight tables
I took a work colleague out to Capri and we both enjoyed the food very much. Our server, Gina, was excellent and made wonderful recommendations. Portion size was very generous, and I ended up taking half of my dinner home. The noise level was great in the sense that I felt I could have a private conversation without having to whisper, and yet the sounds from the restaurant did not drown out my voice. My only recommendation to the restaurant would be to take out 1 or 2 tables and leave a bit more room. Seating was very tight.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
The portions are huge, served piping hot and old style italian with thick red sauce or capers and lemon and olive oil. The fish is fantastic, seafood pasta fantastic. The eggplant parmesan is enough to take home.. The atmosphere is very energetic and crowded. There was a line but the owner served appetizers to those waiting at the bar. I think somehow they overbooked that night the line was so long and when I called to confirm my reservations and ask if we could come at 6:15 instead of 6:00, even though I had confirmation from open table, they said they couldn't accommodate me and that open table was told to stop taking reservations two days ago because they were already sold out. It was strange so I ignored It.

Great for Anniversary Dinner
I went with my wife for our anniversary dinner to Capri in Burr Ridge. It was very busy, and very loud. That aside, we were seated promptly for our 6:30 dinner. Our waiter, Elton, was very knowledgeable and friendly. Everything that we ordered was spectacular. We will be going back.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
True Italian with a flair!.
Great food service and overall a real keeper this quaint little place serves some of the best regional Italian food at very modest prices. Capri is one of my favorites, and I know good Italian being raised in little Italy on the west side of Chicago.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Capri staff was accommodating. The food was very good and was hot upon arrival and the dining room was very festive. Will recommend this restaurant to my friends.
12/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Want good ole home cooking. Truly home cooking with Mom in the kitchen preparing the meals and Dad watching over the bar. Add to that and you have the owner aka son providing a superb environment and elegant place to bring someone special.
12/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always Great !
My wife & I live on the northwest side but we don't mind the ride because the food is always excellent.The Management & Staff are very attentive, informative & friendly. This is an above average Italian Restaurant, but they don't hurt you in the pocket.They also have a great wine selection.
12/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great overall dining experience
This was my first time back to Capri in many years and my only complaint is that I didn't come back sooner! Great service from the valet to the waiter to the host. The wine was great, the atmosphere was festive, great crowd, even the background music added to the experience. The food was simply the best Italian I have had in a long time and I dine out a lot. Capri is now on my regular rotation of dining places, especially for date night with my girl.
12/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food here is exceptionally good. The ambiance is beautiful. The only "issue" we had was that we wanted to sit in the covered patio area, which has more room, but they were having trouble with the heat in that area. Besides that, everything was FABULOUS!!
