Celebrated my husband's 50th birthday with dinner for 16. Staff was outstanding! Worked with me ahead of time to make sure this was a surprise and during the evening, the service was amazing! Food and drinks were delicious. We all had a very good time and everyone was very happy!

Great Italian spot in heart of DG
Traditional, yet contemporary preparation, Italian spot. Great service from Jessica. Managers and hostesses dressed sharply, servers clean and prompt without pressuring. Bussers and runners need some improvement. Loud but not overpowering, great location - can walk to many other spots downtown DG. WHAT TO GET: Bruschetta, Caesar, Sunday Gravy, soup du jour (homemade!) and don't forget to the decent wine list. WHAT NEEDS HELP: They charge for soda refills - TACKY.

Brian, the owner of capri
Brian, the owner of capri is very attentive to his customers. We went on a Thursday night when there was entertainment. We we enjoyed greatly. The food was outstanding but the service was on the slow side due to the packed house and people waiting out the door. I have been here quite a few times and definately would recomment capri to everyone.
5/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
Yes, the food was above average. But, I have a hard time paying expensive prices for a bowl of pasta.
5/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
I'll be back
This place is modern and upscale - yet has a special feel to it - like an old friend. Dress is casual or formal. Pasta was cooked to perfection. Sauces were excellent. Tilapia could have been tastier, but sauce made up for it. Wine by the glass was good, with an ample selection. Our waitress was attentive and friendly with helpful suggestions on food and wine. Our group of 5 celebrated mother's day, as well as a 28th wedding anniversary. The Anniversary couple received a complimentary Tiramisu dessert! This is my 3rd visit and my only real complaint is with the coffee. If they can up the ante on the coffee, I would rate this place outstanding all around. Ask to be seated in the side room if you wish for more privacy and less noise.

Great Mother's Day Dinner
As always, Capri did not disappoint! With roses for all the Moms, I couldn't think of a better way to start our evening. The Bloody Mary Bar was a cool treat. Mom loved making her own Bloody Mary! Our waiter, Dominic, was fantastic as always! Just the right amount of care and attention without going overboard. Our meals were amazing as they always are...I've Never had a disappointing meal here! With cheesecake, canolis and tiramisu for dessert, who could go wrong?!?! Love Capri!
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Even with reservation, we were made to wait for 25 mins. But the food was great and they've given us a partying gift for our anniversary (dessert), which made it for a better experience.

Capri - Italian Extrodinaire
My wife and I have dined at Capri on several occasions, and each time the food, service, ambiance, and wine selection have been extraordinary. It is a great place to dine with friends, together as a couple, or as a group.
5/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
You can't go wrong w/anything on their menu! Their vodka sauce is amazing and this last time I had the spicy sauce w/pancetta in it! Oh my gosh it was awsesome! Love the roasted garlic & olives you get before dinner too! We also had the fried calamar appetizer. Great homemade rigatoni!
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great atmosphere and excellent food
My wife and I went to Capri in Downers Grove for the first time and loved it. The vodka sauce is excellent and my wife had the lemon chicken, which was also very good. The service was fantastic and enjoyed the atmosphere in the restaurant. The restaurant was busy but not too loud.

From the minute you walk in the door - you feel like you are family! You are greated on the way in and on the way out. Great food, service and atmosphere. The servers are always very well versed on the menu and make helpful suggestions.

Capris in Downers Grove
This is a fabulous place for dinner.
The food is excellent, and the staff are very helpful and friendly.
Their Gnocchi is unbeatable.

In the midst of the chaos of the Rotary Fest, my husband and I enjoyed the hockey game, delicious pasta and calamari, and wonderful service. Will be back again and again.

A Night at Capri
We had a wonderful dinner party at Capri. We had a party of 14 and the owner and staff made the evening magical for my wife. The ambiance was warm and inviting. All the food was amazing,especially the Chilean Sea Bass which was truly outstanding. A huge thank you to the staff and owner who helped make my wife's 30th birthday such an amazing time.

Group of Ten
We came from Las Vegas to visit family and decided to eat here before the car show. The food was delicious. We got the Calamari Fritti and the Calamari Capri to see what the difference is. Get the Calamari Capri. It has so much more flavor and was delicious. I got the Pollo Forget about it which was excellent! The portions are huge here. I wish they had told us, I would have split something. With your entree,you also receive a choice of dinner/Cesar salad or a soup. For the $$ and the portion size this restaurant is perfect. Very well priced for the amount of food you get.
It had a lively atmosphere and was a pretty enjoyable dinner. We will definitely eat there once we come back to visit again.

Always good; you can never miss with Capri. Friendly staff and excellent food. I had the veal special and it was fantastic. My husband had the chicken florentine and cleaned his plate! Delish!

Our favorite place
My boyfriend and I love Capri, not only the great food, the exceptional wine list but the outstanding service. It is our favorite place in the western burbs!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is excellent and the staff very accommodating. We really enjoyed the food, we were seated right away w reservation and the noise level wasn't too loud. A great date restaurant
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
A taste of Italy close to home.
Outstanding Italian food in the western suburbs who knew? We enjoyed delicious pasta and seafood coupled with wonderful wines. The decor was crisp white tablecloths on black tables with an elegant bar. We found the waitstaff attentive, without the stuffiness one would expect. We chose to eat inside although there is casual outside dining. I would recommend Capri to anyone interested in a warm friendly dining experience with excellent food.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I ordered Tilapia with an egg wash served on a bed of spinach...It was wonderful! Perfectly prepared...
The staff is friendly which makes you want to return. We do...

We went to Capri for a birthday and it was wonderful! There were rose petals on the table when we arrived. We were seated next to the live music, 2 Italian guys singing standards, which was a little loud, but they were so nice. They came to the table and sang Happy Birthday during dessert. The calamari appetizer is the best calamari I've had, hands down. The mussels in my linguini were fat and sweet. Everyone enjoyed their dishes. The manager (owner?) was saying hello to every table, some twice. I definitely recommend Capri of Downers Grove.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
My daughter was very surprised when we arrived and
There were rosé petals on our reserved table. There was also
Live entertainment which was at a perfect level.
You could still carry on a conversation and talk at a normal
Level. It was a very nice evening. Her only complaint
Was that her dinner of cheese tortellini with marinara sauce
Was bland. She wound up sharing my linguini and white
Clam sauce and loved it.

A great personality. The service is what is such a great dining experience.

a cost place
Busy but not overbooked. My wife liked her order and was a little left to take home. Service was great and I tipped accordingly. Was not rushed to move on so other could have our table. Nice
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and great service
Great food and great service from Dominick. We'll be back soon to Capri - Downers Grove!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is one of my favorite restaurants. The food was excelant and the wine list was more than adequate. I will definitely return.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
A lovely fine dining experience
The atmosphere, the food and the service are consistently terrific. This visit was a romantic dinner but I co hosted a bridal shower there this summer and have been there with family on one other occasion and no matter what the event it is memorable. Dan has been our waiter each time we have been there and adds to the dining experience.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best in downtown Downers Grove
Our server recommended their special fried Calamari for an appetizer and it was the best calamari I think I've ever had!, The only problem was we ate so much we were concerned we wouldn't be hungry for our dinner. The meal was well paced though. The homemade pasta was so yummy and really tasted homemade. We had heard the food was excellent and were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was pleasant. I look forward to going again!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great restaurant!!! I enjoyed the food, service and over atmosphere. Kind of hard finding parking but they were nice enough to hold our table. I will definitely visit again.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food and friendly service
Nice menu options. A few more than the typical Italian restaurant. Great service. Thought the veal Giuseppe flavors did not meld very well it just tasted like two entrees stacked atop of each other but everything else was very tasty.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Special and worth the drive
Although not in my backyard Capri didnt disappoint me at all. They made a birthday celebration a night to remember. Thanks to our server for suggesting vegan friendly options.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
very good food and service
the service was very good, attentive but not annoying. The food was delicious and good portions. It is a nice place to take a few friends for dinner and conversation.

We had great customer service!
We had great customer service! Our server Dan was excellent! We wanted to order calamari and he recommended the calamari Capri which was some of the best we have ever had (highly recommend it)! He was also kind enough to switch out a martini I ordered that I didn't care for, and replaced it with something I did like. My entree was so-so (it was a pasta special with shrimp and scallops, but there was hardly any seafood in it). My boyfriend liked his entree. Overall a good experience and loved the live music and atmosphere. Would go back again to try another dish, the pasta is homemade and excellent.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food. Good service. What more could you ask for. Enjoyed it.
