Menu is large and varied. Wine choices are broad and most are reasonably priced. Bread is delicious. Service is very good.

food is good. service is spotty. you always have to ask for refills or bread. what upset me is when i got the bill they charged me for diet coke refills. no one told me. 4 refills cost $10. no one told me that refills were not free. I have been coming for years. NO more

Wish I could make their red sauce like they do; it's marvelous. Do a great job on fish and their vegetables are never overcooked.

We really enjoyed our first dinner inside of a restaurant in months. The waiter was friendly and helpful, attentive but didn’t hover. All the food was delicious. The grilled octopus followed by grilled scallops with linguine were all perfect. My husband loved the spaghetti carbonara. The desserts were also perfect. Altogether a great dining experience.

Charming Italian restaurant. Best bruschetta I have ever has. I had a scrumptious veal marsala while my wife had delicious chicken piccata. Both served with a an assortment of fresh vegetables, a nice change from the usual pasta. Profiteroles were to die for. Excellent servive and reasonable prices.

Hugo is such a fine gentleman, properly and classically educated server and host ... a joy. The food delicious. Fun Valentine’s Day course menu. Especially liked that the staff and patronage reflected a broad diverse swath of society. Everyone welcome. Will be back for sure. Thank you for braving the ice for us. Happy Valentine’s Day.

We visited Capri on Sunday for my wife's retirement and it was Excellent. We had the shrimp and scallops and the house wines. The dishes, their bread (with a very crusty crust), the house wines and the chocolate mousse were outstanding and the service was very good.

The reception upon our arrival was poor and disjointed. One of us ordered veal scallopine and received scallops and shrimp instead. Fortunately, he took it in good part, saying he liked scallops too (after having said earlier that, to him, an Italian restaurant meant he would order veal and chianti). Our server was oblivious to the error. The food was tasty and well prepared but the service was as disjointed as our reception.

I've always enjoyed Capri Ristorante here in McLean and am glad they have
managed to remain open for take-away as well as in house dining.
I encourage other local residents to take advantage of this fine
restaurant.

Had lunch with a friend outside on the balcony at Capri and enjoyed a delicious Rockfish entree with a side of spaghetti and marinara sauce. The warm crispy bread is always delicious at Capri. The warm and friendly staff always welcomes customers and aims to please.

We ate outdoors and it was a lovely night with a little breeze. We felt a bit like in a Euro bistro! The service was attentive as usual. We felt the food little under par—bland vingarette, bony fish— but under the unusual circumstances we will give it another try next week.

As is typically the case when we dine at Capri, we were greeted warmly when we arrived and treated well by staff throughout the meal. Staff took deliberate measures to sanitize surfaces as diners departed. The menu included a vast array of offerings and what was served to us was excellent. We enjoyed the atmospherics and the meal. We encourage others to return to the restaurant if they have been there before and also encourage others to do the same.

Delicious food, friendly atmosphere, waitstaff right on top of things and reasonably priced.
Enjoyed inside dining during these Covid days. Tables set apart, staff in masks and gloves and dining room very clean. Another lovely evening.
