Very disappointed we had to wait over 30 minutes past our reservation time to even be seated. They seemed to be overwhelmed. Once seated, 10 minutes before a server approached us so overall set a bad tone for dinner......food good as usual.

All in all very good. If I were to be picky, I'd say my linguine could have come out of the water 1-2 minutes earlier. Good meal tho.

food, server and wine all really good. I have 1 pet peeve. We dined early with plenty of open tables. WHY? do you seat someone at the table next to us, so close its communal dining. You could stand 1 less table along the windows to give diners some conversational privacy. It literally ruined my dinner. Couple next to us was clearly uncomfortable too.

We were seated 35 minutes later than reserved time, but found seats at bar to pass time. Server seemed harried and came across as abrupt and not particularly friendly...hopefully this was because they were busy? Food was their shining light and we all enjoyed our meals! It was a bit loud for easy conversation. But we will try it again.

We've been there a few times and always enjoyed it. Food is always good, and plenty of choices on the menu. Service was a bit slow that night, but they had a rehearsal dinner there with 44 people, which took up a big part of the dining room. No problem other times that we've been there.

We had eaten there 2 or 3 times previously and our meals were excellent, but hadn't been in the last 2 or so years. Our meals were just OK, nowhere near the quality we had experienced before. Also the prices were very high for the mediocre food we were served. At least the wait staff were very friendly and courteous, and when asked how we enjoyed our meals I replied in the affirmative so as not to spoil my Fathers 92nd birthday dinner. Because of the high prices and mediocre food I won't be returning. (I don't mind paying a premium price for an excellent meal, but not for a low end diner quality meal.)

The waiter was one of the worst servers I have ever seen. He practically made a mistake on each course and on each round of beverages. He was nice but evidently not trained or prepared for this type of service. I have to tell you I am a regular of the but ridge location and this is not even close to the type of service I receive at that location. I do not expect anything in return for you to fix this service. One example I can give you is I ordered one limoncello for my wife and the waiter brought me a lemon desert, and the worst part of it was that I was charged for it. I hope my feedback helps this restaurant.

The service was good, the drinks (blueberry mojito, lemon drop, I think) were great.
The food - would not recommend this to anyone. Chicken florentine and veal florentine. Salads were small with no taste. Presentation of main course was not appetizing. Meat was overdone. For the price - a great disappointment.

Capri is close by like many Italian restaurants and like others, it can get busy, noisy and the tables are a bit close together. However, that is where the similarities end. Capri has some lovely bottles of wine that are at a slightly lower price point than comparable restaurants, my favorite being The Prisoner, a great red blend. The food is excellent as well! My son ordered grilled calamari which is very tasty. The chef kindly prepared an eggplant Parmesan appetizer (not on the menu) that had been a special a few weeks ago. The eggplant slices are crisp on the outside without making the inside mushy. On the menu, there is a honey grilled salmon filet with grilled veges that is fantastic! Also on the menu is veal Marsala that my husband raves about because it's not the paper-thin pounded veal chops. Unfortunately, we did not partake that night but a favorite dessert is the Bananas Foster prepared table-side. There are other tasty desserts that also give this one a run for its money! You can't go wrong with Capri in Downers Grove!
