From host to service to ambiance to food everything was excellent! In this post-(ish) Covid world this dinner was the best I’ve had in two years. Almost as if city restaurants were back in full swing. Turning tables and slinging excellent GLUTEN FREE Italian food. Our server was on point and super personable, food was excellently presented, portioned and prepared. The restaurant was a touch noisy, but not inappropriate for how busy it was (surprisingly on a Tuesday), we had a table for two amongst 5 other similar which was a bit tight if uncomfortably on a first date, but three years in and happy to eat a whole gluten free meal of Italian classics with out kids we were fine with it. Excellent job, we’ll be back definitely.

Capo's gluten free night was outstanding! My partner isn't gluten free, but I am celiac. It was probably the most delicious meal I've ever had, and I haven't had garlic bread in 3 years! Truly magical!

Service was nice but food is honestly below average. Prices are astronomical and not worth it. Comedy was ok- definitely check it out though because it’s fun to get a drink or dessert and see a show in the basement- just not worth getting dinner beforehand.

Great experience - food was awesome. Everyone got different pastas which were all amazing. On tuesdays they offer gluten free options which was cool, didn’t realize that. The drinks were awesome too. Service was good. Will be back soon

We got here early and had an amazing dinner. The food was really good quality but the pizza was cold and burnt. Meatballs and bruschetta were amazing. I was so happy to be there early to get into the capo basement before the crowd. AMAZING.

The hostesses were being outwardly rude to me even though I was being really nice. They were basically scoffing at me and it felt like high school.

We came to celebrate a special occasion and had the best time. Our server Kate who was awesome, had recommended bruschetta and meatballs for appetizers. So so good!! Chicken parm, bolognese and pepperoni pizza for meals and they were huge portions and amazing flavors! The manager Alexis came by to see how our meals were, so nice to feel like VIP! From the really nice hosts, servers and managers I would 10/10 recommend Capo to anyone! We will be back soon :)

Geronimo was probably the best server I’ve ever dined with. That’s saying a lot considering I manage a restaurant in seaport and have been in the biz since I was 18. Place is always a great time

It was a nice restaurant and server was excellent! Had a delicious cocktail. The food was good, not great but the noise level was intolerable. Not sure how to fix that problem but I wouldn’t go back because of it.

Great spot for Sunday brunch in Southie. We all got a different meal from sandwiches to breakfast and everyone agreed the food was delicious. Drinks were good and service was excellent even though it was crowded. Never had to wait long for our server to come by to check on us to see if we needed anything. Will go back for sure.

Hands down my new go-to when I am in the city. The food was amazing and Shannon our waitress was fantastic. I have a severe gluten allergy and survived the night with absolutely no issues! Highly recommend.

This was one of the most horrendous dining experiences I’ve ever experienced! Our server kept disappearing for 20+ minutes at a time. We had no food, drinks, or water for extended periods of time. It wasn’t even busy. The food was the only acceptable thing at capo. And that was mediocre at best. I will never go back.

Was a lot louder than I expected - voices are very amplified throughout the building making it hard to sustain conversation even in the back by the kitchen. Our waitress was actually hoarse from trying to talk over the background noise. But, service was excellent and food was amazing!

It was just OK. This was my first time at capo and I was not impressed. The food was subpar and I could find food just like it anywhere else. My friend asked for gluten free pasta, and they gave her regular. She requested twice for GF meal. The wine was good though. I don’t think I would return, only if friends really wanted to go.

I’m upset I forget my waiters name but he was so professional and would come back because of him. I was meeting someone that I haven’t seen in years and I think he picked it up and gave us perfect time to chat and enjoy our dishes! Great service

Great food - we got the arugula salad, corn ravioli, and chicken piccata. We also got the cannolis for dessert and would def recommend. The drinks were great too - love their spritzes. Service was good. Will be back again soon
