I think the restaurant was louder than usual because of the Red Sox playoff game, but the food and the service were outstanding! I am so happy they have gluten-free night and I’m looking forward to trying more of their delicious options. This is also the first time I’ve had tiramisu in over 20 years! I am incredibly excited to return for their next gluten-free night.

Excellent service and food. I also don’t know where else in Boston you can get a steak of such quality for that reasonable a price.

The food at Capo was amazing. Unfortunately, we found our server to be rather rude. I have several food allergies & she was quite rude when I asked if they were in the meals I had selected. Also, we waited roughly two hours to go into the basement, even after eating our meal. When we asked the staff if that was normal/how quickly the line was moving, they were incredibly rude and dismissive of us, so we ended up leaving, which was quite frustrating because we had intentionally come into the city and paid for a hotel room to go to this restaurant to celebrate a friends birthday. While the food was delicious, the experience was overall disappointing.

The food was very good, but the atmosphere was way too much like a sports bar for my taste in a nicer restaurant we went to for a date night. We were first seated practically in the laps of a group next to us and under a massive tv - had to ask to be moved to another table. There were very few people wearing masks and towards the end of the meals large groups of people started lining up around our table to go downstairs - none of them wearing masks. Not a good atmosphere for a nice night out.

Five of us REALLY enjoyed 2 Apps--meatballs and zucchini french fries! Followed by amazing veal marsala, stuffed zucchini, eggplant parm and a 24-hr braised pork shank .....all of which were out of this world!

Great location, convenient restaurant. The staff was friendly and helpful. Good food, my family loved it.
One thing I requested when I booked online was a champagne for my mother-in-law's birthday that was not brought to the table. But we were fine with that because it was super busy there, otherwise we enjoyed our dinner.

Great dining option in the heart of South Boston. Food was fantastic, service was decent and the restaurant had a lot of energy. High ceilings and crowd made it very noisy, but we’ll definitely come back again.

We love coming here. We celebrated our parents anniversary and we had a great dinner. The staff even helped us get down to the supper club to listen to the Sinatra Sundays. We always love coming back.

Capo is a great dinner spot for friends, birthdays, or just because! The service was wonderful and the food just hits the spot. All their pasta is made in-house and you can even get half portions if you want to try a few different things.

Really enjoyed our dinner at Capo! Food and drinks were really good and our server was very nice. The only drawback was they kept the doors open which made the restaurant surprisingly chilly. But overall, it didn’t take away from the experience and we found the meal to be excellent.

We both got different risottos and they served a ton (we each took half of it home). Additionally we started with the croquettes and they were spectacular. Between that and the warm bread to start it was more than enough food without filling us up.

My fiancé got wine and I had the margarita on tap which was really good. I prefer margs a little sweeter and this has that plus a little spicy kick to it as well.

Don’t bother making a dinner reservation upstairs to go out in the basement. Our group of 7 arrived at 7:30 for dinner, put our name in for the basement at 7:40. Waited around upstairs until we finally called it and left at 11:45.

We were a large party coming together for a friends bday and we had told them in advance so they could have easily organized us in two tables next to each other but they put us on opposite ends of the restaurant. We specifically came to then go to the club downstairs and with reservations at 8, they NEVER let us down… we waited around until midnight and people kept coming in and out of the club but they didn’t let our group down and even after we left we still didn’t get a text that we can enter the club. Horrible service and such a mess for a birthday celebration…

What a delightful evening! We were seated outside at a table with beautiful lighting and ambiance. We ordered the meat and cheese board which was large and the best I have ever tasted. The rest of the entrees were delicious as well. Servings were ample. This is obviously the place to be for a younger crowd and the restaurant was packed. You will not be disappointed!

Amazing food, service was slow and we had to ask for things a few times before actually getting it but the food made up for it. My gluten free friend had garlic bread for the first time in years so thanks Capo for your gluten free nights!

We went for gluten free night as one of my friends is strictly gluten free. Love that they have their normal menu just altered slightly! Food was incredibly delicious, service was excellent, and you could not even tell the food was gluten free. Highly recommend!

The server only comes to us once every 30 mins. We were wanted to order more food and drinks but give up. I'm sure she did not motivate to serve us. I used to love there a lot include Bolognese but this time I hate it. The pasta had not cooked enough, so I asked to change it but it came the same. I can see it hasn't cook by bite! Very disappointed. This time will be my last, sorry.
