Food and ambiance are great and the supper club downstairs is fun! Didn’t have a great experience with our sever and the espresso martinis were horrible.

In Boston looking for great Italian food? Skip the North End and the tourist traps and head to Southie for a gem. Capo is wide open, beautifully appointed with great, creative Italian food.

The service at a Capo continues to shine. W took our friends and their 2 children to Capo for an early Saturday dinner, and they went out of their way to accommodate every single special request - from seating to splitting entrees. The server did not blink twice to any of the myriad of requests we had, and the manager Kevin was on top of everything with us, including a wine recommendation. We are regulars here because of the service and the food. It is hands down our favorite place to be and to dine in Southie.

It was a Wednesday night towards the end of the night. We enjoyed sitting by the open windows. The service was great. The food was pretty good. The bartender was super nice. If we lived here, we'd definitely come back.

All the restaurants along Broadway, in Southie, were great. Capo, Lola’s and Lincoln were excellent diners and the beer selections were superb. Highly recommend.

I totally love Capo, this was my second time here. The food is always delicious, the staff is very kind, and the crowed is always energetic. The pasta dishes are particularly my favorite, the bolonese is so warm and comforting, definitely a go to! Large groups are great there, they have wine by the JUG, if you so desire. The pizza is the best for large groups as you can share it more easily than pasta or other things.

First time having brunch at Capo. They offer so many brunch items and lunch items! When we first sat down, we were brought over a complimentary birthday doughnut which was on the specials menu. SO GOOD! I got the Italian panini which comes with a salad. I also hash browns and meatballs for the table. Everything we had was delicious. Music playing was awesome. Great crowd (not crazy and loud like other restaurants for brunch). Coffee drinks were tasty. Will definitely be going back again for brunch.

It was impossible to hear the person across the table. The noise level makes this a most undesirable place to eat. The food was tasty. And, it was lost due to loudness. I would not recommend this place to anyone due to the loudness.

Nicely decorated inside. Good size bar with bar tables. Food was good comfort Italian food. Exceptional meatballs! Drink menu was nice and cocktails were great. We went on a Sunday evening so it wasn't too crowded. We did make a reservation. Bar was lively but not disturbing. Young crowd.

Starting from the host right up to manager the staff is excellent. Atmosphere is warm, inviting not pretentious. Food is great and frankly underpriced. The owners are clearly trying to provide quality at a reasonable price point. Mission accomplished !

Stumbled across Copa on Broadway St, and SO GLAD we did! The food was delicious, and they have a fabulous win selection! I would definitely the calamari, it was fresh and one of the best we’ve had. The ambiance is great, very rustic/lodge style with an Italian feel. Also loved the music venue downstairs for after dinner!

Great food and bustling Saturday night scene. The appetizers are decently portioned and the cocktails and bar have an amazing list of options. If you don't have a reservation in advance, you'll be out of luck. We tried heading down to the basement for live music afterwards, but the list was over 3 hours long. A word of advice - eat early so you can get down to the basement!

Food was excellent and great value. The pasta dishes and the board were outrageously good. It was a vast space with a huge bar area. Noise level was really high -- hard to engage in conversations but you can feel the energy.

We had a 730 reservation. We arrived at 710. They took us right away. I ordered a red wine. It was just okay. We ordered. The food came very quickly. In fact, my daughter noticed the food arrived 19 minutes from when we walked through the front door of the restaurant. It came so quickly that it beat the bread. I cannot review the bread since we didn’t eat it, since it came after the entree.
I ordered the chicken Parmesan. The pasta was undercooked and the chicken was over cooked. The portion was huge!
My daughter ordered the Pasta Pomodoro. She enjoyed it, but couldn’t finish the portion.
