We come to Capo every year for our wedding anniversary celebration. This is always a lovely and delicious experience. Our main server was charming and knowledge, and even took the time to have a plate of ice cream with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate around the plate...so thoughtful. The Lead Reception Gentleman was so accommodating... very gracious ...all the staff inside and out were friendly and made this another special night to remember.

Excellent food, excellent service, big wine list. We sat outside due to COVID. Plenty of space albeit was a little loud. Next time we plan on sitting inside. Certainly will recommend to anyone that wants very good pasta (we did not try the steaks).

Very unique intimate dining experience. The food is high quality and prepared perfectly. There is a wood burning fireplace in the dining room where some of the entries are cooked. I had one of the best veal chops and two pasta dishes. The service was perfect too. I have been there three times and have had a special experience each time.

Capo is a very special gem in Santa Monica. The italian food is authentic, high quality, romantic and overly impressive. The staff is there to guide you through the amazing wine list and menu.
This is one of my all-time favorite treats to indulge in.
I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves food, romance and special treats to treat themselves or others with!!

The service was great! The entire staff was very attentive. My salmon entree was cooked to perfection and the asparagus/mash potatoes were delicious. The ribs my fiancé ordered weren’t to his expectation, a bit chewy.

Some of the most delicious food (pasta with porcini mushrooms, salad a present, insulate mista) I’ve ever eaten. Wine was terrific but VERY expensive and poured in kitchen so we were never shown the bottle which is surprising given a glass of Sancerre was $22.. our meal for two with wine was over $400 and we were seated literally in a covered parking lot though the latter is result of the pandemic.

We LOVE Capo! We usually go when we are celebrating a b-day or Anniversary and every time we go it’s amazing. The food and service is impeccable! It’s pricey but you really get what you pay for. You will not be disappointed. It is one of our favorite or our favorite restaurant in LA. I highly recommend and I give 5 stars!

Was a frequent here before the lockdown.
I would have said before it was LA 1# Resturant

Today it’s a very different story.

FYI - menu online is not the real menu at the restaurant.
Opentable allows 9:30PM reservation- but when you get to the restaurant they will tell you they are closed.

They will pretend they are doing you a favor by accommodating your perfectly valid confirmed reservation.

Food quality has gone down to the level of a low/mid level restaurant.

Food was under seasoned and almost tasteless.

Waiter only asked me how the food was/checked up on me after the main courses were finished.

Unfortunately this has just become another LA resturant to be seen at. Nothing to do with food quality, service or taste.


My waiter got my order wrong. The bus boy had to fix it part of it, I scraped off the rest of the order that was wrong.

Despite the waiter not checking up and messing up twice - I was still forced for give 20% gratuity- as it is mandatory.

I have no issues with a service fee or the prices at any restaurant - but nothing at this restaurant meets or requires it.

You are paying for a Ferrari and getting a KIA

The food was and always is great but they outdid themselves with the parking lot conversion. Love Capo indoors or out they are the best Italian restaurant in LA!
