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.

My veal chop was tough. The service was slow, considering there were only two other groups in the restaurant.

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.

The B. B. Insalada is superb as is the warm bread and soft butter. Dining either inside or out is a lovely experience.

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.

Having been to the Island of CAPRI... it was fun to meet for dinner and enjoy the Italian Cuisine!! The service was excellent and the Eggplant Appetizers with a half order of the Ravoli was perfect -- we so enjoyed the Veal Lemone -- noting the Fresh vegetables done perfectly ( not overcooked or soggy)! We finished the dinner with the Lemoncello Cake -- EXCELLENT. We are definitely going to return soon.

We are so very pleased that McLean is enjoying this Italian restaurant with a lively crowd on a Sunday night.

We have been to this restaurant several times and always enjoyed it. This time I ordered the daily special Veal Lasagna and half way through the meal I saw a large piece of plastic (like a wrapper of sort) sticking out of my food. My appetite (and that of my wife who also was 1/2 way through her meal) was completely ruined. They took the food away. They comped my lasagna and they gave us a free dessert but we still had to pay for everything else, including my wife’s half-eaten entree. It may be a long time before we go back. It was a terrible experience.

Two in our party ordered Dover Sole and said it was the best they'd EVER had (and these two have traveled and had it all over the world)! My ossobucco over risotto was awesome--and the lemon tartufo dessert is not to be missed! Dimitri, our server, is always wonderful. Can't go wrong.

When we arrived, we said we had reservations. However, the staff never asked for our names. In my reservation I'd noted it was my husband's birthday but unfortunately the celebration was never acknowledged.
The food was not bad: shrimp and scallops for me served with a very good assortment of vegetables, sea scallops over linguine for my husband. The portions were generous but both dishes were too oily for our tastes.
My principal complaint is with the service. Overall it was perfunctory. The waiter seemed robotic and appeared to want to rush us through the meal. Our impression was that it was the type of service you'd get at a casual rather than a "fine-dining," white-tablecloth restaurant.
Future patrons may also want to be aware that the "formal" dress code listed on Capri's website is a joke. People at tables all around us were dressed in very casual clothes, including hoodies and sweatshirts.
We won't return.

We dined here on New Years Eve and the reason I only gave 3 stars for food was because of the special menu. Most all entrees had fish, I don’t care for veal and there was only one chicken option.

The restaurant staff were polite. The food was OK but bland in taste. The dacor was fine. It would not take much to make the food a lot better. There are to many other Italian restaurants in the area to go back to bland food.

We had our annual Christmas Eve dinner at Capri, and the experience did not disappoint. They were full of course, but the vibe was festive and the service and food were wonderful. Looking forward to a repeat NEXT Christmas Eve, and perhaps a visit or two sooner! Thanks!

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.
