    Service was very good--until the end of the meal. Server was MIA when I wanted a dessert. Took a long time to receive it, but it was well worth it. The whole meal was delicious!! Then it again took a long time to receive check and then the credit card slip. Otherwise it was a wonderful find!! We will definitely go again!

    Have been going periodically to Capo's over a number of years; our latest visit was quite a disappointment. The Mob's Meatball Salad turned out to be incredibly hot, burning the mouth with what? Red pepper?....with no warning of that. The chicken Caesar was just so-so, nothing outstanding. One appetizer WAS passable. The singer (on a Monday) was not up to the standard of a previous singer we have heard at Capo's and should NEVER be allowed to attempt "My Way" again. It will be some time before we attempt Capo's again.

    We had a 5 o'clock reservation for three. I think we were put at the "forgotten" table by the bar. The evening started OK with our server explaining the specials and taking our drink order. That is where things started to go south. Our server never came back to give us our drinks and the "manager" ended getting them from the bar and giving them to us. The bus boy ended up doing all the work at the table, and because our server was great at disappearing we gave our next drink order to him. The server re-appeared (for the last time) to serve our meals. She never once came back to check if we needed anything, never got our drinks - again - and never showed up to give us our bill. Incredibily bad service!!!!!!

    Dined on 11/1/2014
    We ate at Capo's Rest. for my son's birthday. I was disappointed with my choice of food. The clams over linguine had way too much liquid in it & some of the clam shells were empty. I was still hungry when I left the restaurant. My son enjoyed his dinner of veal cutlet. I also think the lighting should be better especially when the check arrives. I couldn't read it. Luckily my husband had a mini flashlight on his key ring so it came in handy.

    If you're looking to step in to the past with a classy vibe, fantastic food and great wine look no further than Capo's speakeasy italian restaurant. Capo's has a great menu with many choices of pasta that you can compliment with poultry or seafood. In the background there is an elegant pianist who sings the old tunes of frank Sinatra. This restaurant is good for couples,parties and if your looking to just stop by and have a quick drink the nostalgia of the bar brings you back to the feel of old vegas. Come on down and experience it for yourself.

    We brought four friends because we enjoyed ourselves so much the first time. The experience was terrible. The food took n hour and forty minutes to arrive, the service was poor and it was so loud by the kitchen with everyone yelling we could not hold a conversation. Very disappointing.

    We have been here several times bringing guests from out of town. Usually consistent in food and service. We had a good time but the kitchen was very slow this night and dinner took almost 45 minutes to serve. Just a note most seating is booths so if you have any larger guests make sure to request a table for comfort and fit. The servers were friendly and kept checking on us through the night. Music is live with an entertainer but is loud so be prepared to shout at the table. Overall a good time when we go.

    The speakeasy entrance was both novel and fun. The ambiance was great. The lighting was spot on and the dinning area was just the right size to give you a friendly feeling. The menu provided several selections. The food was very good and of ample proporations. The service was just right, not lacking and not intrusive. The entertainment was also every good, especially for Sinatra fans. It was nice to be sung to at table side. A magician impressed everybody with his close up card tricks also at table side. The Capo experience was one of my best in LV and I will definitely revisit it the next time I'm in town. I have aleady recommended it to my friends.

    If you book around 5:30 pm you will have the place to yourself. Can say nothing bad about this place. You have the ambiance of time past when the Gangsters ruled the night life. The live crooner is a special touch to your time spent. Also you are not rushed out the door but left to converse in your leaser after a meal. Don't forget they have a 2 for price of one night during the week.

    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.

    This restaurant delivered its promise on the speakeasy atmosphere. It was a cozy environment with very friendly staff. Sometimes going to a themed restaurant means that the food may not deliver but not the case at Capo's. The food was delicious and fresh. The Caesar Salad was one of the best that I've had in Vegas. I highly recommend Capo's for a night out.

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.

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.

    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.
