Food is great but the service is unpredictable. Sometimes is great sometimes they don’t care if there’s a waiting costumer waiting for the receptionist but they don’t care to come and acknowledged.

This restaurant is a gem in DHS but needs to upgrade the service when it comes to coordinations.
Shoutout to Management of CAPRI.
The place is amazing with it comes to food but service is not so great.

This restaurant is no longer signed up with Open Table. When we got there they did not have our reservation and we had to wait for an open table. Please update your records!!!!

Prices were a little high the service was okay since there were not many customers and food was barely okay.. I would of known I would of exchanged my gift card. I will not be back. Then she didn’t know how to do the gift card cause when she came back with the amount due for after was not the amount of the gift . She only wanted to give half of the gift card

Ambiance is Good because it is a great place but we were cold. When we left, we found the front doors open.

The food was outstanding especially the petite fillet with the shrimp- delicious along with the vegetables, rice and wine. As you can see, we choose the couple special - all 4 of us mentioned the great food. Thanks to the chef. Also, the guys liked their beer.

Thanks for a wonderful evening.

Terrible service. Hardly anyone there, but waitress kept disappearing into the kitchen
when I needed condiments. We stood at the front dek to be seated and 3 people
(waitresses) looked at us....and did not come & ask us to be seated. Ignored us.
Food tasted bland.

Enjoyed a dinner with friends while visiting Desert Hot Springs. We've been going to the Capri for many years, way, before it moved up on the hill. Nice place for comfort food (good pasta), tiramisu and wine, at reasonable prices. We went on a Saturday night, had reservations, and it was a busy night, but we lucked out with a great waiter, and had really good service. Highly recommend!

There was no hostess when we arrived at 5:20 pm on a Friday. The bartender was perturbed that he had to seat patrons. One young lady, maybe the hostess, was running around answering her cell phone which went off at least three times in ten minutes. The calamari was over fried and had no flavor. Our waitress was very friendly and the helper kept our water glasses full. The rest of the meal was very enjoyable and tasted great. The spelling of the dishes I won't try to butcher. We ordered sides of their meatballs and sausage just to try it and we were not disappointed. Our meals were great and the left-overs the next day for lunch were awesome. Will eat there again but not order the calamari. Prices seemed very reasonable. With a few tweaks this is a five star review.

Gloria was a wonderful server!
The ribeye steak and the Filet were great, however the vegetable sides served with the steak were very undercooked. Maybe the Baked Potato is a better option. Thanks anyway.

Not like the old Capri. Steaks were awful..We couldn't eat them. VERY thin steaks. When we complained to the manager he said "Thanks for telling me" but did nothing to our bill. DO NOT GO. Run away from there.

This may be an Italian restaurant, and while they do a good job of the Italian dishes, the biggest surprise is their steaks. Choice steaks, served on a sizzling hot metal plate. Had lunch and dinner there this week and never disappointed. 16oz Filet for $34.95 can't be beat, Lobster Linguini was excellent. At lunch the Eggplant Parmesan and Fish & Chips were excellent too. Great service and a great view of the pool.

When we arrived, a blonde woman, from across the room, said, "Just sit anywhere". So we stood there for a few seconds, assessing the open dining room when a young man (Jace) came, retrieved menu's, greeted us and said we could sit where we wanted.
The waitress was quick to the table, and was friendly but seemed to be in a hurry to get our drink and dinner orders. The menu was varied, Italian food and Steaks. We had to ask if there was a special for the day, and what was the soup for the day.
After we ordered, the manager (or supervisor) came over but she seemed on autopilot, I don't think she heard our responses or cared about our being there.
After the waitress brought salads, she didn't ask if we wanted anything else, (wine, drinks, extra dressing, etc). Dinner came before we were finished with our salads. After steaks (dinner) were served, the waitress never came back to check to see if we needed anything . The rib-eye steak was good, but had a bit of a sweet taste, good but different.
It was the day after Mother's Day but they only had 2 deserts from the menu available (poor planning). We will probably return, but only because we have been there before when it was better.

A pleasant surprise not too far from home. The service was very good, as was the salad. The salmon was a bit dry, but not bad . The cannoli was yummy.

Service when we were seated left much to be desired. Some waitresses were not busy and did not offer to open our wine. Service improved when our assigned server waited on us. Food was not that great..salad was good, but my filet mignon was not very tasty. Didn't even look like a normal filet you would get in a steak house. Made me wonder if in fact it really was a fillet. The accompanying penne pasta dish was not very tasty either..pretty bland sauce. Price was ok, but food not that great. Would not return.

I am a regular at Capri and I am always impressed with the service from Max and Jody and the quality of food. The portions are huge, the chef really knows how to cook the steaks and chops, especially the rack of lamb. I've had breakfast, lunch and dinner at the restaurant and my favorite by far is dinner. The steaks are done exactly the way you ask, so come hungry!

Tucked away at Miracle Springs is an Italian Steakhouse with authentic old world recipes for sausage, meatballs, sauces and the best steaks for the money. The steaks beat most of the higher end chain restaurants costing twice as much. Try a rib-eye served on a "sizzle platter" with mushrooms and onions. The Braciole is one of our favorites. Decent wine list, generous pours for the cocktails, and great service with waitstaff who seem to really like being there.

Awful experience that was so disappointing given the presentation of its fare.
I'd call it a tired, shoddy coffee shop not a restaurant of Italian dreams.

My wife and I have eaten here several times. Previously we liked it. Food and service very good, prices were moderate. This time was different. We ordered two New York steaks. Both were filled with sinew. About one-half of my wife's was inedible. Couldn't cut that part.
The waitress was very understanding and offered to comp both dinners. We didn't accept that. We compromised and accepted one dinner compted.
What happened? We understand there is a new chef and new ownership. But we can't confirm that.

Dinner was so-so. I had the linguini and chicken, which was kinda blah. Salad was smothered in dressing. My wife had the rack of lamb, which was very good but the side of steamed vegetables was like cafeteria food.
Breakfast was very good.
Kym, our dinner server was wonderful. The breakfast servers weren't up to par.
Would eat breakfast or lunch here but head to Palm Springs for dinner.

This restaurant is ok for breakfast; however, do not recommend it for dinner. Prices are reasonable, but the food quality is mediocre to poor. My wife had the crab cakes which were heavy on filler and almost totally lacking in crab taste. My Filet Mignon was cooked properly, but had been too heavily seasoned with teriyaki sauce which detracted from the flavor of the meat.

My girlfriend and I were staying at the resort, and I had a restaurant credit for Capri so we thought why not try it? Service was attentive from start to finish. We had the dips for an appetizer, The hummus was the best of the three, with the tapenade just a little too salty. I had the Frutti di Mare in White Wine sauce w/ salad and a sausage on the side, while she had the Top Sirloin w/ a baked potato and Cheddar Broccoli soup. The Frutti di Mare was excellent as was the sausage, with the salad being alright, I just didn't see it coming with pickled beets. My GF loved the soup and her steak though, I was surprised how much of it she ate since she usually doesn't take out that much on her own. The Cannoli for desert was excellent.

Why cross the valley when you can eat the juiciest prime steak right here in DHS? Casual dining at a great price. No frills, no suits, no attitude and no crowds! I go here at least once a month!
