Capri Ristorante Italiano - McLean
The waiter who served us rushed us throughout the meal. From when he served the sparkling water, to the wine, the getting the plates off the table. Most irritating however, my wife was finishing desert and he gave us the check. I don't give my credit card until the meal is complete. The waiter came back several time and picked up the little book with the check in it. I told him we were not finished and I hadn't put my card in the book. He came back again a minute later and again took it. I said we are not finished, why are coming back every few minutes. He said he"was efficient" I gave him the card and we left immediately after signing without me even finishing my glass of wine.
One of our favorites. Always a treat. Food is delicious and appetizingly presented. Congenial hosts and servers. Always look forward to our visits.
very very good. a wonderful evening with excellent food and service
Outside of Italy, Capri Ristorante is as good as it gets, capturing the flavors of an amazing Italian dinner. Excellent all the way around.
Really enjoyed the burrata, a "special" appetizer that night, as the cheese was on top of arugula with a scattering of cut cherry tomatoes and dressed with balsamic vinegar. The rack of lamb crusted with walnuts and a honey sauce (another special) was good, although the sauce was a little cloying by the end, but the pieces of lamb were very large and tender. My husband enjoyed his veal chop that was accompanied by a mushroom sauce. I was surprised that the service was good, since it was a crowded Saturday night.
We always have a great dining experience at Capri Restaurant. The food is amazing and wait staff is very friendly. Our practice is to arrive early to avoid the noise level when the restaurant is full.
Very busy on a Saturday night. Waiter was knowledgeable of food and Wine. but service during the evening was not as good, forgot a drink order, Salads came before the appetizer. The food was great everyone at the table order something different and everyone enjoyed.
Excellent food....wide variety of dishes. Excellent pesto spaghwtti. Service is very attentive and welcoming.
Was a nice evening and good fresh and tasty!
Great Italian food and wine specials.
Very good food and service! Everyone at the table ordered a different dish and all were well prepared. Great dessert options, too!
wonderful dinner superb service. what a wonderful evening. go and enjoy.
I loved my pasta, my friend said her salmon was over cooked.
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.
Retired ladies lunching in a delightful, attentive setting with very good food.
our meal was extremely good and enjoyable as always. our favorite in mc lean,va.
Sent four golfing buddies who were craving really good Italian food--and they loved it. Great service and really outstanding dinner
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.
As so many times in the last 15 years, our group thoroughly enjoyed dining in Capri Ristorante Italiano. We all highly recommend it!
One of the few restaurants in McLean you can count on! Well done!!
Hostess neglected to confirm w open door that we arrived
Has gone downhill since we were here last. No daiquiris and cracked glasses from the bar.
Never disappoints! We all loved it.
Thank you. Food was delicious.
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 restaurant with a wonderful ambiance. I liked it so much that I'm returning with some other friends.
As in previous occasions over a number of years, we all enjoyed very much our lunch: delicious meals, excellent service...
We all strongly recommend Capri Ristorante Italiano.
this is a very good restaurant in mc lean va. always consistent a joy to go there we are regulars
The lettuce on the Ceasar Salad was brown. The main course was good.
My wife has a lot of reactions to preservatives in food and at this restaurant she had very little reactions. It means to me that we will be back and often!
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.
