Food was great. Service just right — attentive but not intrusive. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great, moderately priced Italian meal.

This would be a lovely restaurant, if they seated within their capacity - and used noise-absorbing textiles/fabric in their decorating scheme. It is a small, one-room eatery that offers very decent food - but the noise level and crowded seating is ridiculous.

We had reservations; however, we were directed to their (small, corner bar that seats about 4 people - to wait for a table to came open. We were there for a festive occasion (Christmas Eve) - and ended up being seated on folding chairs at a small, rickety table - between two large tables with very loud diners (but, they probably couldn't hear very well, either). We gave up on trying to converse and could barely hear the waiter. Needless to say, the menu came in handy ;o)

It's apparently a popular neighborhood restaurant, and we really wanted to give it a chance. This was our 3rd visit to Capri Ristorante Italiano - and although we didn't run into a lack of seating in the past - the noise and limited space (in close proximity to the front door, no matter where you sit), makes it a non-starter for future visits.

Lovely restaurant! Our food was delicious and all 6 of us cleaned our plates. We will most definitely come back. Service was a bit slow but honestly, it was well worth the wait. Portion sizes are generous and menu prices are reasonable.

Thanks for helping us make our special occasion memorable.

The food was excellent, two different calamari starters, veal marsala, veal picante, and rockfish filet. The waiter was a bit pushy at first with the "special" wines (all reds), but we had one person in our party who is allergic to red wine and thus had to order white. Once we ordered, our waiter was great - no disparaging comments about our choice. One note: this is an upscale restaurant, so they should not have brought out our main dishes before we finished our starter plates. That makes for awkward shuffling of dishes. It's a lovely restaurant, a charming place though a bit loud when busy. Definitely a neighborhood go-to spot.

As usual our dining experience was excellent. The staff was gracious and accommodating. The bread was warm and delicious. All four of our meals were perfect. The desserts were outstanding. It is easily the best Italian restaurant in McLean far superior to the newly renovated one down the street

Very good food, and quite reasonable for the high quality. I ordered the rockfish which was perfectly done, as were the side veggies. Very reasonable wines by the glass, as well, and the salad (Pomodoro) and desserts were just delicious. Great service.

Mother in law selected for a friends and family night out after attending nearby choral music concert. Tasty but not amazing - for example, husband liked quantity, flavors, temperature of his carbonara but it was too saucy and thus texture was off - a bit like pasta soup. Another item - my lasagna - very little ricotta and sauce was a tad odd (more like tomato cream sauce then regular marinara or chunky tomato sauce- either of which I’d prefer). Perfectly edible but not quite right texture or flavor. Service outstanding not invasive but quietly attentive- but again we asked for more bread but when this arrived no butter came with it so I then had to ask for this too. Not too expensive but three people (me husband MIL) came to $125 with tip, which was: 2 appetizers, 3 entrees, no desserts, 1 glass wine, 1 cup of tea. So, also not so affordable (cheap) that bringing more butter for bread should be a special request. Quiet and charming .

Simply put, a terrible dining experience. Our waiter, Nelson L. was slow/inattentive. We had to ask another waiter for bread, and then ask the on duty manager for bread later in the evening. After waiting for our food for about 25 minutes, we asked the manager for help. He promptly brought out our order. We then had to flag down the manager to receive our bill. The manager was barely apologetic, and offered no compensation for the poor service, although it did appear the manager was scolding the waiter when he obtained our bill.

What a great place to gather! It doesn't matter if we arrive at 6 p.m. or at 9 p.m., we are greeted warmly. The service is remarkable; the wait staff is warm and delightful; and the food is simply delicious. We truly feel like family at the Capri.

Having spent lots of time in Italy, I enjoyed Capri's very good food and service. Unfortunately, it was spoiled by a loud-mouthed gaggle of females who may have had too much to drink! I'll return but hopefully the gaggle won't be there!

This was the perfect spot for a quiet lunch. Menu had a variety of offerings. We enjoyed the Sweet Potato soup (large portion and served steaming hot), and two different luncheon salads, that were both delightful. Grilled shrimp was especially good. Service was adequate.

The food is excellent. We especially like the Salad di Capri and the Rockfish. Service is a bit spotty and sometimes the noise level is bothersome. But, overall, it is one of the best in McLean in it's price range.

We visited Capri as part of Restaurant Week. The salad was excellent, but the soup was mediocre. Our entrees were adequate, but not great. The veal scallopini was a little bland. We frequent Italian restaurants and know of several in the area that are a better choice.

Finding the restaurant took some sleuthing skills as it is on the second floor. Once the first guests climbed the stairs and mentioned that the escalator wasn't working, the staff turned it on. We did learn later there was an elevator. I had forwarned them that we included guests with mobility issues so I would have expected them to see to that before we started to arrive.
I checked their website the day before hoping to see their RW menu but the one showing was from May 2017. I called to clarify and the person answering the phone didn't know anything about their website but assured me there would be a fish option on the RW menu. There was not. Food for a party of 8 took a long time to arrive and wasn't hot. Quality was fairly good but no exceptionally good dishes. Wine and coffee were excellent.

We've eaten there for several years. They make authentic Italian food - and not just the dozen or so menu items you typically see on an Italian menu.

Their dishes are prepared using good quality ingredients, and are carefully and consistently prepared per a good recipe.

I like their wine, but I'm not a wine expert; so I won't say more about their wine.

Their prices are in line with the quality of their food.

The restaurant is on the second floor in a shopping center, but it has a nice interior decor. An elevator provides easy access for people with disabilities.

The serving staff are always attentive and nice.

Server was attentive. We ordered gazpacho and rockfish (both specials) and veal. The tartuffo desserts were superb and gazpacho had a nice kick to it. We were not rushed at all and stayed for awhile after our dessert and coffee. My first time there, not really my neighborhood, but I would return there.
