Capri Ristorante - Burr Ridge Ratings and Reviews
Food was good. Service was unacceptable. As long as we were spending money, the waiter was ok. As soon as the check was paid, he wanted us GONE. Could not have been more obvious or downright RUDE. We left him a perfectly decent tip - afterward we were sorry we did this. The waiter took a glass of wine away from one of our party even though she wasn't done with it. A bus boy came by and filled up my water glass. I took maybe a couple of sips of it and another came by, stuck his thumb and finger right in my water glass and a couple of other glasses on the table and away he went. I will not return due to this arrogance and rude actions. There's plenty of other restaurants who will take my money and treat me better. No more Capri Burr Ridge for me - I've heard it from other people and now I've seen it for myself.
We go to this Capri a lot and always have wonderful food. This time was a bit different. Our reservation was at 8:30 pm but we didn’t get seated until 8:50 pm. The hostess was not very nice when we inquired about being seated and also got in an argument with the owner in front of us. When we finally got seated the waitress quickly got our drink order delivered however was very slow taking our food orders. Additionally, I go there on Saturday to get their special. I ordered and after 10 minutes was told they ran out. My daughter, at the end of the meal, ordered a dessert and was told they were out. I was very disappointed this time.
This place is always spot on. Authentic Italian food at its finest. The service is outstanding too. Portions can easily feed two, but why share? Leftovers from here are the best. Diego our Server was fabulous. Highly recommend, great menu choices, price is average for a good Italian restaurant. Worth a visit.
The service was outstanding. There were plenty of good wine options was reasonable. The food was very good but I thought the portions were small considering the price. Ordered a dinner with mussels and my wife ordered a dinner with shrimp, about 90 percent pasta and 10 percent seafood. Other than that we had a very nice evening. Our waiter Dale was possibly the best waiter I have ever had. He knew when to check on us and knew when to leave us alone as we were having a “date night”. Would definitely go back.
I maintain a frequent presence at Capri in Burr Ridge. There never has been a bad experience. Gigi and his entire staff continue to provide superior customer service. I have been there with family, friends and business clients - all of them have nothing but good things to say and ask "when are we going back?" Capri Burr Ridge, hands down, is the best italian restaurant in the entire Chicagoland area.
The service was great, our waiter however mozied around like he was going in a stroll through the part rather than waiting a busy restaurant but the busboys more than made up for that! They were incredibly attentive, very friendly and very quick and professional. The bruschetta and calamari were delicious and loaded with flavor which is why I was shocked when I received my scampi cosenza and it had 0 flavor. I’ve never had to alter my pasta before but I had to add a ton of salt and parmesan to get any sort of taste. The atmosphere felt like a big family gathering more than a restaurant, it was kind of tight and maze like but once you sat down and had a chance to soak it all in it was not so bad. All in all it wasn’t a horrible experience but the lack of flavor in my main dish makes me hesitant to return.
I really can’t say enough good things about Capri! We love the food, the service is outstanding, the atmosphere is lively and did I mention that the food is outstanding? Well worth the trip if you’re not close by. We just love the whole vibe of Capri. Make your reservations right now!
Once again, very nice dining experience. Food was very good; and our server was great - efficient, very personable, and just the right amount of attention even though it was very busy. My only complaint is that I think restaurants take advantage of the customer charging $8 for a glass of house wine.
Capri never disappoints. From the caprese salad that we started with, to the wonderful desserts, everything was delicious. My husband had the veal Il one, which was perfectly sliced and seasoned. My brother and I had the gnocchi that melted in your mouth. He also had a side of meatballs, which he said were like Mom used to make. Cheesecake, trio of gelato, and the limoncello flute finished our meal.
I can only recommend this restaurant for its generously portioned good Italian food and full bar. We have been coming here for years, when we used to be able to have a nice quiet dinner for 2, but, with the build up of Burr Ridge, it is now always crowded and ear-splittingly noisy. We LOVE the calamari alla Capri (a little zippy and big enough to share with 4). Very extensive food options. Menu no longer says this, but each main course comes with a choice of soup (minestrone) or salad (a very nice fresh green salad). The OK wine list is ridiculously overpriced. House policy of no separate checks. No salt, pepper or butter on the small tables. Carafe of good olive oil, bowl of so-so parmesan cheese. We will continue to come occasionally, on a week night, not during the holidays.
We had the best meal we’ve had in quite some time! The authentic food was exceptional, beautiful atmosphere and outstanding service! A special thanks to our wonderful server and assistant who were so attentive, prompt and accommodating to our large party of 10. She was superb! We will absolutely be back!
