Waitress assigned our table near kitchen and table in opposite end. Water was not refilled. Bread was not delivered. Owner did send complimentary chips. Waitress came by very infrequently. This is not first time service was horrible. The food is good quality but they can’t seem to anticipate service needs.

Our Pizza arrived Luke warm...lacked flavor. If that's the best they can do...it's below average. Not impressed

We dined with a group of eleven. They accommodated us with a private area. Our waitress could not have been better. She was cheerful and made us all feel wonderful.

Everything was great as usual! Highly recommend the hot lobster roll! It was delicious! Server appeared to be relatively new or disinterested - however everything else was awesome!

Service was a little slow but good was very good as always, slightly overpriced. Bar was a little crowded and noisy, which spilled over into our seating area, which I’m guessing was our location because we were Open Table customers

Although our waitress was new, she tried very hard to make everyone's experience great. We thoroughly enjoyed our salads and loved the atmosphere. It made it very comfortable to sit and chat for two hours with our very dear friends.

We love coming to da Capo! All the staff is friendly, efficient and flexible! Food was delicious as always. We were on the deck which was great.... music piped from inside was a bit loud, but our waitress explained the setup and did her best to lower it!
Our favorite go to!

I ordered an ice coffee and waited 15 minutes to get the milk and sweetener to put in it. It was a
very warm evening and, by the time the milk and sweetener arrived, all of the ice had melted. In
addition, my salad was supposed to have mozzarella balls in it and my friend had requested adding
polenta croutons to her salad and neither items were in our salads. We both, still, enjoyed our salads
and, in fact, the grilled chicken we ordered to be added on, was quite good. It was not very busy, so
we were a little unhappy with how infrequently our waitress appeared and regarding the issues with
our order. At the same time, it is not fair to base your experience on one time, so will try again, probably, in the not too distant future.

There was quite a crash of several glasses of wine and one of our three patrons had wine splashed on them. While the server was concerned about cleaning up the floor he did not inquire as to whether any of us were impacted. The food arrival was slow and the chicken marsala was overcooked. We have had much better experiences at da Capo and would assume that this was just an off night for them and our overall experience has been good in other visits.

There was many open tables but we were sat right next to where the servers put in orders. They were noisy and at times unprofessional. Food is always consistent and tasty.

Great food, and especially good value if you do the “family size” salad/pasta. Salad fed 6 of us and the pasta could’ve fed 4 or 5 probably. A little loud was the only complaint we had.

I love daCapos food, but our last visit was terrible. While we knew our waitress was new, the mgr. never came over to check on us when he clearly saw how long we waited for everything! It took about 15 min. before anyone first came to our table. Another 20-25 min. to get bread. And we waited a full HOUR for our entrees. The waitress was very apologetic and embarrassed, but it was totally unacceptable. She did give us a piece of cake at no charge. Not sure what was going on, but it will be awhile before we go back. What a shame.

Food was great. I think our entire party enjoyed everything we ordered. Only issue was their inability to really service the table during a busy Saturday night. So the overall experience took away from the food. They seamed to have not enough servers as everyone looked like they were in a frenzy rushing around. We didn’t get water refreshed nor our drinks reordered. We had to ask to get our check so we could leave.

Due to a mistake in communication, we sat at the table far too long before the rest of our party arrived. We ate appetizers and drank wine, but nevertheless, we were terribly concerned that we were holding a table. The manager and the waitstaff were understanding and gracious and, in the end, we had a lovely meal. Food was delicious as always - we have many distinct tastes and this restaurant satisfies them all.

You really can't go wrong selecting da Capo for a family dinner out!

We went there for a birthday and it was absolutely great! We chose the 4 course menu (starter, main course, cheese and dessert) and it was enough. The food was divine and beautifully presented, the service professional and friendly. All of these served in a beautiful settin. Oh and I forget the very good wine! In one word: fabulous! We are already planning to go back again.

Fresh ingredients make this our go-to place. There is something for everybody- pizza, veal marsala, lasagna, great salads that you can add a protein to. There salmon is large and portion and perfectly cooked. Our server was attentive. Noise can be a bit loud but you can't change the structure of the building.
