Fabulous lunch place with delicious warm bread served shortly after being seated. The Insalada Gambino with grilled shrimp and mango is superb. Excellent service team.

Upscale Italian food - pasta and seafood dishes. A bit pricey, but worth it.

By any definition, the Capri is a good restaurant. I typically rate restaurants using four criteria: 1) quality of food; 2) service; 3) ambience; and 4) value. The Capri scores highly on all four criteria. Unlike many old line Italian restaurants, the Capri is light and airy. The food is good as is the service. Nothing to complain about, for sure. My friend and I had a very pleasant experience and will return.

Capri offers delicious, moderately priced, well- cooked and well-presented food. My guest and I both had the lunch rockfish special and the lemon dessert, accompanied by a glass of wine and coffee. The fish was fresh and accompanied by perfectly prepared vegetables. Our dessert was unique and satisfying without ridiculous calories.

Service was excellent and we were able to eat on the balcony on a sunny, 75 degree day for a relaxing 2 and a half hour lunch. Besides easy parking and access, Capri offers excellent quality food at a price that would easily be much more at many local restaurants and would be unlikely to be as good.

My only complaint is that I would like to have lunch at Capri on Mondays, in fact, every Monday, but the restaurant is closed!

We always enjoyed this place, but not tonight. Food was good, but it was WAY too noisy. Waiters were inattentive, and when we were obviously finished with our main courses, when we might have ordered dessert or more wine, they literally ignored us while they were busy setting up tables for the next day. Uitmately we had to wave someone down to get our check so we could just leave. Very disappointing.

Capri has a great menu. My lovey wife had one of the veal dishes and I had the lasagna, both of which were superb. Our server was well informed and attentive. The restaurant is very attractive and comfortable.

I have had two lunches outdoors at Capri recently and both were great experiences.
There are patio heaters if there's a chill on the air, which there was at my most recent
visit. The tables are set beautifully, and the wait staff does not leave you waiting and
checks very often to see what might be needed.
Capri always features lunch specials in addition to their regular menu. On one occasion I had a Caesar salad with grilled Shrimp. More recently, I had the Rockfish special which was delicious. The broccoli that accompanied it was perfectly cooked. Their Tiramisu is
fabulous!
We have been fans of Capri since they opened, and before the Pandemic had many birthday lunches there, as well as dinners with friends and out of town guests. We've never been disappointed.

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.
