Capri Ristorante Italiano - McLean
Pasta E Fagioli
Short pasta & cannellini beans
Linguine w/shrimp, calamari, mussels & clams served w/a reduction of fish fumet in a tomato sauce
Arrived on time and seated. Got excellent bread service and ice water. But, that was it. We sat for over 40 minutes without a server approaching our table. We got up and left.
Have eaten here before but never experienced this kind of service lapse.
We’ll give it another chance!
We had a pleasant lunch at Capri. The ambience also is pleasant and conducive to conversation. The menu is extensive, with daily specials, addition to a wide variety of pasta, fish and meat for main courses. Our meals, trout and agnolotti, were delicious. The desserts were good as well. Our server was excellent. All in all, a good spot for a leisurely lunch.
Very nice, my first time visiting this restaurant. I definitely will go again
Very nice evening.
Capri is always a wonderful place to enjoy. It has been one of my favorite places to take friends. The staff is accommodating and the food doesn't disappoint.
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.
We absolutely love the food and would like a lower level of noise.
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.
Just a great neighborhood stop in the Northern Virginia area. Solid and extensive Italian menu and all quite good.
We love this local family favorite. Not only is the food great, in restaurant, but as take out, their food really stands up...great owners and servers too
Good food and service. Quiet ambiance, easy to have a table conversation. Nice wine list too.
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!
A very pleasant place to eat and meet with friends.
Very busy and probably a little short staffed, but overall as good as usual.
I've eaten at Capri Restaurant numerous times for lunch & dinner. The food is always fresh & delicious.
Rather excellent - everything you can expect in small quality restaurant with everything in its place and nothing overdone
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.
Excellent staff and food. Very satisfied.
Lovely quiet restaurant with a menu including a variety of seafood, pasta, and meat. We love it!
Outstanding experience. Seafood is consistently among the best of I have had.
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.
Food was delicious and reasonably priced. The atmosphere was fine and the wait staff was excellent and very responsive.. An enjoyable evening with good friends.
A lovely setting that has excellent food. Service is superb and tgphere is attention to detail.
Very reliable with excellent food and service. Wait staff do such a fine job.
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
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.
Menu is large and varied. Wine choices are broad and most are reasonably priced. Bread is delicious. Service is very good.
Likely the best restaurant in McLean, Virginia. We go often and have never been disappointed.
Great food and drink. Excellent service.
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.
Outstanding restaurant. Food is great and the ambiance is nice
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.
The entire staff is wonderful! They do not need to change a thing! Food/drinks and environment were above and beyond!
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.
I've never had a bad meal. The fish and veal are incredible. Great service and friendly atmosphere
It was very good food and the portion size is really good. The environment was very nice for date night and the service we so good. They accommodated our allergies very kindly
very convenient location, service is very good, attention to details, good is good.
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.
