We were looking for a good Italian restaurant as we were passing through McLean. It was lunch time. The food was ok, nothing special. The service was good. Very clean. The ambiance was a little depressing as the clientele was 100% senior citizens. We felt we had checked in a retirement home.

They need to get someone at the bar who knows how to make drinks - can’t take one of my friends because they always mess up her drink order.

Honored my request for a table for 4 by either the back or side wall...very pleased that they actually read the 'any special ' requests section of the reservation

What a gem! We've always wondered about the little restaurant on top of Joseph Bank in a McLean strip mall and now we know - it's great! We'll be back!

Great food & wine, great service, fair prices.

Our only quibble is the noise level from other tables. We wish they’d put some sound deafening materials on the ceiling.

We’ve been in McLean for 18 years and this was our first time dining at Capri. Wonderful menu, service and food. We will definitely put this on our list for weekly dinners and already look forward to them.

Ended up here sort of by mistake after rude service at another restaurant. We had never been here before, but were completely impressed and will definitely be back.
Unassuming location in the top corner of a strip mall but top shelf/white tablecloth service....and legit authentic Italian cuisine. Impressive.

The restaurant was very accommodating of our large group and the baby. Food was delicious! The servings weren’t all large (ravioli was a small serving), but everything tasted wonderful!

Very little Italian in the restaurant except for the language of the menus. The service was lousy, the food was vulgar but the water was good.
This is a restaurant for people who have no idea what Italian food is and have no sense of taste.
This was our second visit to the restaurant and both times were awful.

Every time we dine at Capri it always meets are expectations. The only downside is the high noise factor but we love it so much, we just try to go early to avoid a full house.

Lovely location and airy, light-filled room. Excellent food - we focused on seafood and were not disappointed. This is a place for a leisurely lunch - and we appreciated it! Service was professional and un-rushed, but there when we needed it. And you won't be pushed out - we were there 2 1/2 hours catching up and shared the spumoni dessert ... very good! I am planning on a return!

Food was quite good. Special emphasis on seafood. Waiter very helpful in making selections. The dining room has good acoustics so you can hear reasonably well without shouting. Expect to spend a little more but worth it.

Capri has been a sure thing for my wife and me since our arrival in McLean 10+ years ago. The food is delicious, but the service is exceptional - as evidenced by an occurrence last year. We had visited the restaurant several months earlier, it was raining and I wore a rain hat which I inadvertently left at the restaurant and forgot about it. The next time we showed up - at least 3-months later - the waiter sees me, walks up and hands me my hat-how he remembered me in all that time I have no idea.

The food is consistently excellent. Do not go for a rushed meal. It is a busy place, but people are well cared-for.

Note; The Chocolate Gelato is not gelato but ice cream

We had a wonderful evening in pleasant surroundings with white table cloths, soft lighting and attentive staff. The service was prompt, professional and helpful which made our entire evening very enjoyable. The menu is extensive and all our food choices were excellent. Thank you to Capri and staff; we will be back soon.

I have dined there many times.

Ambience is always quite nice and service is good.

Our meals this time were not quite up to the usual quality one expects there. Also portions were a little smaller than usual.

Was also a bit pricey for what we received.

But I would go back - they may have just had an off day.

We are regulars at Cape and usually have a delightful evening as do our guests. Saturday was an exception, only in the service. Food was it's usual excellence. The service was unusually slow and it was very difficult to get the attention of our waiter. Even when he caught my eye or hand raised, it took I'm a very long time to respond.

We'll return but hope for better service
