Out third time here. One of our must visit places in Santa Monica. Always great engaging servers and an eclectic Italian menu. Truly something for everyone. Expensive but what isn’t for fine dining today? Interesting art, some quite erotic, on the walls, dark draperies and no windows make for a intimate dining experience. Perfect for Valentines weekend! It’s very loud with close quarters so be prepared to shift your chair when diners are coming and going. Impressive interior from a place that looks like a small brick warehouse on the outside. You could miss it easily when driving by. Capo is a winner!

My husband and I went for Valentine’s Day dinner. It was so nice to be at a well paced restaurant that did not cram extra tables for dinner. Friendly service and great food! Always one of our favorite ‘go to’ places for a special occasion.

We had heard very good thing about Capo and were excited to have our first meal. We had to wait a few minutes for our table, but used the time to decide on a wine. The recommendation was excellent. We were seated at our table after a few minutes we spoke with a waitress. She seem confused because she did not realize we had bought a bottle of wine. She answered our questions, but never returned. After waiting with empty glasses another waiter stopped by and we discussed ordering our appetizers first. We were told the kitchen couldn't handle the order being split. We said we needed another minute. He never returned. Eventually I had to engage the maitre d who quickly addressed the situation. Unfortunately we had waited over 45 min just to get our order in. Our food was very good, but not exceptional, but that may have been due to some confusion over my wife's dietary restrictions. I believe they misinterpreted her request and over corrected for what we wanted. Overall it was a very nice restaurant, but between the service and food issues, I would not consider it exceptional.

After so long in business (for LA), they still manage to get everything right, every time, with every table. It’ll always be our favorite.

Possibly the best dining experience in LA. Impeccable service; meticulous attention to detail for every course; every ingredient is fresh; also, the vibe has a great energy. I know it draws mostly local, but I come from La Canada for Capo.
