    Was a quiet night out. Monday night left us with a very small business crowd. The food was great. The service a little slow for so few customers. Overall a good dining experience

    Capri Ristorante provides authentic Southern Italian cuisine -- delicious, well prepared and fresh. The dining room is light and airy -- like Capri itself! On all 5 occasions I have dined there, the service has been impeccable. The restaurant is on the second level and is protected from any outside noise. Recommended to me by a friend and by me to other friends, this restaurant is a delight.

    I wanted to be able to make a reservation on a Saturday night for 6 people in a quiet setting and lucked out by taking a chance on Capri. We'll definitely be back for cozy dinners and groups. There's ample space between tables, the staff was very attentive, the menu extensive. Two of our diners were vegetarians and they had no trouble picking out appetizers and entrees. The rest of us had chicken, fish, and veal and the portions were generous and well flavored.

  • The Capri in McLean, VA
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 7/22/2011
    Excellent food and great waiter/service. Very accommodating! Requested a specific table where my date and I sat on our first date a year ago. Arranged the table just like it was a year ago. When the long stem roses I ordered from a local florist arrived, the maitre de delivered them to the table herself. Excellent selection of wine ranging from moderate to expensive prices.

    Even though Capri is in a shopping center the food and service were very good. We enjoyed the fresh bread and house salad. The rockfish special was light and tastey. The spaghetti carbonara was excellent. Although we don't live nearby, we would make the trip to eat here again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 7/2/2011
    Even at 5:30pm, the earliest reservation available, this is not a family friendly restaurant, and the staff didn't even try to be pleasant to me when asking me to calm my slightly excited three year old son. The waiter was condescending and no one looked happy to be there. My smiles were responded to with sarcasm, so I took my son and went home. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone solely because of the unpleasant and unaccommodating attitude of the staff.

    Rarely do you find such first-rate cooking in such relaxed environment. It's an upscale place without remotely being stiff. And did I mention the food? The gnocchi and the rockfish were particularly outstanding. Love this place, will be back very soon.

    nice neighborhood restaurant with some orginal takes on Italian classics. Everything was great except the language skills of the wait staff. They had problems communicating with the patrons and could make no suggestions.

    I ordered one of the lunch special - a trout dish that came out still as a board. Way overcooked and you could stand it if you wanted to. Good news is the luncheon prices were reasonable.

    Dined on 5/8/2011
    went there for mother's day. i called and asked if in addition to the mother's day menu, i could order from the regular menu. They said I could but when I was there I was given the mother's day specials and the dinner menu which is way more pricey than the lunch menu. I inquired about it and they said only the dinner menu was available that day. That way they could charge more.

    Food was wonderful. Service was terrific but not hovering. Dining room was quiet enough for a normal conversation. Setting is very pretty because it's on the 2nd floor so it feels like it's in the trees.

    Capri is a Mclean icon with fantastic Italian dishes, friendly service, and reasonable prices. It's not kid-friendly, and regrettably that doesn't stop some parents from bringing children. Otherwise it is highly recommended!

  • Very good food; we were a
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 4/8/2011
    Very good food; we were a party of five and each dish was memorable. I recommend the seafood linguine -- fresh calamari, clams, and mussels resting on perfect pasta; delicious sauce. The bad news: This is one of the noisiest rooms I've ever dined in, and the service was poor: we were seated 20 minutes after our reservation; the food was slow to arrive; the waiter did not check on us to see how we were doing. You can spend this much at many other Italian places with equally fine food with much better service -- and you and your tablemates will actually be able to hear each other's voices. Try Da Domenico in Tyson's instead.
