    Got a recommendation from the Italian restaurant on the strip. The building outside had a bit run down look but myself and the entire group was extremely happy with the food and the atmosphere of the restaurant. The piano player and singer were very good and the music was at level you could enjoy but still have conversation. I ma from the east coast and Italian food is great. Capo's had maybe one of the best Eggplant Parm dinners I have had in long while. Upon leaving my party of 6 people all said they would return and recommend the restaurant to others.

    Great food and the decor is fun. No kids menu but very friendly accommodating staff had my 8 and 4 year old enjoying their time and sharing a plate. Even sharing there was so much food! Come hungry and still expect left overs. Will do it again, maybe as a date night with hubby and a trip to the mob museum to just round out the day.

    This Restaurant was the total Package. From the moment you step into the 1st door, the experience begins. The entertainment was fun, old vegas (which I love) the food was delicious (and I'm Italian both sides), the service was good (unfortunately nothing exceptional, but friendly enough) the ambiance is fun and romantic if need be, so all in all it's just a great Restaurant!

    our group heard of Capo's from a friend who went here and said we should go. So we set up the reservations and I'm so glad we went. The food was outstanding, we ordered the meatballs for appetizers they were heaven. Dessert was cheesecake and it was perfect in every way. So good I thought how much other friends would enjoy as well as us, so I will be recommending this place to others.

    My friend and I saw this restruant on Mob Wives. We wanted to check it out while we were there. It was FANTASTIC, the ambiance, the music put us back in the day of old Vegas. You can almost see Frank Sinatra and company sitting in a booth enjoying drinks and food. It was absolutely an enjoyable experience. The food was amazing, better than I anticipated. I will recommend Capo's to anyone of my friends visiting Vegas.

    Dined on 9/27/2014
    Away from all the hoohaa on the Strip where you tend to forget what a meal should actually cost, Capo's Italian Cuisine actually offered a very good alternative for a group of friends. The atmosphere is fun with the mob gangster deco and funny host up front. The place is dark, but menus are all equipped with an LED light to enable you to read. We brought our own wine, for $25 corkage, so I have no comments about the wine list. The food is very good, and the service is very friendly. The singer that wonders around the restaurant is terrific and the magician that performs at your table for a tip is entertaining and pretty good. It is a terrific place for a decently priced meal and still have some fun in Vegas.

    Four of tried it on week day. Piano was a nice touch, just don't sit too close if you want to talk. Food a bit pricy. All dishes have interesting names. Service was great. Dark ambiance but provide flashlights with menus. Linguini with clams(white sauce) with real clams was best at the table. Mug shot of Sinatra & other images fun to view

    We had a blast....from the entrance and the secret door, to the singer. We felt like we were "back in it." I could see my menu without the light, some complained it was too dark. The cheesy garlic bread was yummy there, and for breakfast the next morning. We will for sure be coming back to this gem.

    I was really looking forward to my first visit to Cappos. Really enjoyed the lasagna and the cocktails. However, the service leaves a lot to be desired. We were told the bread was in the oven and would be out soon. Well, the even must have been in a restaraunt across town because it took 20 minutes to get it. After the meal we were asked if we wanted dessert. We declined and waited for the check. And waited....and waited....and waited. We finally got it and left. I must give credit to the busboy, as he was very attentive and helpful. In my opinion, he and the waitress should switch jobs. I will go back, but will definately ask for a different waitress.

Easy to make a reservation, the best servers that know the menu, relaxed, romantic, Italian atmosphere, with the God Father playing on the tv, what more could you want! You'd be a fool not to go & get the risotto!

    Our friends brought us to this fun and entertaining restaurant. When we first entered, I thought this place was a bit cheesy in a fun way, but probably not the best food. Boy I was wrong. The food was fabulous. My pasta cooked to a perfect al dente and the meatball was one of the best I've had in the West. The staff was friendly and attentive. The singer was all over the restaurant engaging with the diners. Not the place for a quiet romantic dinner, but definitely a great date spot. We will be back.

Live crooners interact with the crowd and absolutely nail vocal standard tunes with excellent interpretation. Capo's is now the reason I want to go back to Las Vegas - if you love the Rat Pack, semi-circular tufted booths, low lights, a huge quality wine list and a memorable, classy night out, Capo's is for you! Tell 'em Phoole sent you. :)

    In a world filled with fast food and chain restaurants, Capo's was a pleasant surprise. We were delighted by the atmosphere and the staff - and then the food arrived! All three of our dinners were delicious, and the prices were very reasonable. The restaurant is dark, but fits the theme of Capo's; a mob/ speakeasy vibe. ( not to worry, there are small lights in every menu ) We will definitely be back for more!
