My only complaint is that
My only complaint is that my friend's dish (lobster ravioli) only contained 4 small ravioli, which was way less than the portion size of the other entrees at the table. We understand that lobster is expensive, but that is no excuse for serving basically an appetizer as an entree. All of the food tasted very good and was presented nicely. I would go back, but I would warn people against ordering the lobster ravioli.

We were a big group (10) and we felt that everything went smooth and well. The staff had no problem when we asked to change the sitting, they fulfilled what we asked for when making the reservation and they had very good wine at a very reasonable price. We plan to go back!

Delightful restaurant on the
Delightful restaurant on the second floor in a shopping center, perhaps overlooked, but once you try it, you'll go again. Very nice atmosphere. Friendly wait staff. Not overcrowded; thus you can actually have a conversation over dinner. Food was very good and we didn't feel rushed. I have had both lunch and dinner there; both excellent.

What a find! The salad with salmon was delicious. My guest enjoyed fish and vegetables and said everything was very good. I will return and plan to try the pasta and dessert!

Welll done Italian by a skilled
Welll done Italian by a skilled chef - not the typical "red sauce" menu - attractive pricing - simple and clean "white table cloth" ambiance. Best work is with seafood and veal dishes.

Great meal and healthy too!
We went on a Monday night with friends from out of town and wanted to just chat and catch up. It was perfect for that--probably because it was a Monday, because the last time we went it was on a weekend and was quite noisy. The service was good, unobtrusive, and the food excellent. I especially appreciated having my fish served with an array of vegetables -- no starch! One of us ordered a six-cheese pasta which was not a great success (it was a special and perhaps not one to be repeated) but all of us fish-eaters were very pleased. The grilled asparagus appetizer was delicious.

Great small restaurant!
Came here for Mothers' Day. Really good food and nice ambience. Had a kids' menu as well which was a nice bonus. Highly recommend

First time at Capri Ristorante.
First time at Capri Ristorante. I tend to be very picky in terms of Italian food in that I like it a lot, but I find most restaurants do not do a good job of preparing it, but Capri Ristorante did a great job with every dish. The mussels and calamari were very good and I was very pleased with my crab stuffed ravioli. We were with a group of 8 (including 2 children) and the servers were very helpful and attentive.

Perfect neighborhood restaurant
Fresh fish every time, prepared however you want. Perfect pasta and ample portions served politely and promptly by practiced and friendly staff. Consistency and quality -- can't ask for better than Capri for us.

Food was good. A party of four, we all had vitello, one kind or the other, and were all very happy with our choices. At reservation, I had notified them that we were celebrating a birthday. They acknowledged this with their cake and candle, and it was not just any ordinary birthday cake to serve as a stand for the candle --one of the best I had over the years. The service was outsanding. Felipe who took care of us was attentive to details, knowledgable about wine, professional and courteous. Grazie Capri e grazie Felipe.

)HER GREAT MEAL!
Service was a little slow this time .... but satisfactory. Food was excellent and well-presented (except for 1 plate ... could have used a garnish or something to make it more appealling ~ salmon with a side of pasta). Overall, I'm never disappointed here.

Great meal - lovely evening
Wonderful for served in a quiet setting. Great wine recommendation from server. Will return!

better than I remember
Had not eaten at Capri in years (for a reason). Was pleasantly surprised. Food was good and service was attentive. Would go back now.

If they know you, you're family
Don't know how else to describe the pulse here; I love coming for the grilled whole Branzino. Sometimes you need to make your needs known and I'm ok with that. If you're willing to advocate, you'll be very happy. Bon appetite!

The food is excellent and the price is moderate.
Portions are ample. Menu is varied. The staff is attentive and friendly.

Always a delicious meal in a beautiful atmosphere. The fish and pasta dishes are excellent and the wine selections are great for pairing with the specials.

Enjoy a pleasant meal.
The service was very good and the food was great. Seemed to be the kind of neighborhood place where locals meet and eat with each other.

Excellent Food and Service
What a great find! I had a business meeting/lunch and decided to have it there as it located close to my clients office - what a fantastic place. The coho salmon was exquisite - and the tiramisu was to die for. The service was caring and expedient but not intrusive - I WILL BE BACK!

Excellence at the Table
A very fine meal, in a fine atmosphere at a fine price.

Great undiscovered find
This is one of the best restaurants in the Washington D.C area. As far as the Mclean, Va. area, this is the best without a doubt. The food leans slightly toward southern Italian and it is prepared perfectly. The ambience is very nice and the service is always great. Prices are moderate, so all in all this is really a great find.

Excellent Italian Food
We had some friends visiting from out of town who are Italian food lovers so we decided to try some place new. I received an email from Open Table regarding neighborhood gems and Caprice Ristorante Italiano was in the top five so we decided to try it. The restaurant is nicely decorated, white table clothes and nicely spaced tables and was very clean looking. Each of the four attendees ordered something different; spaghetti and meatballs, ravioli stuffed with veal and mozzarella, capellini primavera, and one of the specials of pasta with shrimp and eggplant. All of us thought our food was just excellent. We look forward to going back again.

Fantastic dinner, great service
I love the veal here, VERY reasonably priced and well cooked/served. The roasted potatoes are awesome as a side.

Surprisingly great experience
We were looking for a family-friendly Italian restaurant and Capri exceeded our expectations! We originally had our hearts set on Maggianos but they were unable to accommodate our party of 8; 5 adults and 3 kids (5, 7 & 9). The restaurant had a great vibe and the atmosphere was perfect. It was authentic Italian with an amazing menu for kids and adults. We were all blown away by our entrees, the service and the desserts made the evening special. The owner was so appreciative of our visit that he opened the door for us and sincerely thanked us for coming in. The restaurant was in full swing when we left around 8:30 with a high energy level. I would definitely go back and can confidently say our entire group enjoyed the experience.

It was only my second time eating here but it wasn't a disappointment and although I'm not that excited about driving to a shopping mall, its an easy drive from DC and the food is excellent and the ambience is warm and fun.

delicious but loud
We sat near a large group. The acoustics were not good...hard to hear ourselves. But the food was very good.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
I had lunch with clients here and we all really enjoyed it. This was my first time dining at this restaurant and I had the Arugula salad to start and the Linguine "Steve Yeonas" which were both fresh and well-prepared. For dessert, I ordered the profiteroles and they were fabulous as well. I would recommend dining here and would return to try more menu items.

Really good experience
Our food was really ggod. Veal parmiganio and a pasta special. Salads very good too. It was busy and our server was stretched but still all worked out. Will return for sure

There's a reason Capri has been in McLean for as long as it has. The room is comfortable. The service is warm, professional and efficient. There's a full bar and a serviceable wine list. The food is fresh, authentic and well prepared. Middle of the week, date night, birthday or anniversary, it's a go to!
