Love this restaurant!! First discovered in Litchfield and happy there is a second location in Avon!! The hubby and I always split a salad and sometimes an entree. Clams Vongole was excellent!! The dish has slivers of garlic in the buttery white sauce. Yum!! Usually will drink an Italian red but chose a fab cab. Both California cabs by the glass had a fruity note oddly full fruit but pleasant. Excellent beer selection. Service was delightful. 5 stars!

Been here several times and it’s always great. The food is fresh and prepared very well. The only things that could be improved were that all of the meals didnt come out together (5 min wait for the rest), and one persons salmon was forgotten and had to be quickly made. Not a huge deal.

Great as usual. Prompt service. Cocktails - cranberry mojito, fresh local beers all excellent. Great food - had had th seafood orzo, veal Park, spaghetti & meatballs.

The pork chop was nicely done but the sides (hash of Brussels sprouts/sweet potato) were ok.

Salads were great and desserts excellent.

I'd never been and had different expectations. Place was clean and food pretty good. It was a little louder than I probably would've liked for a date but a good place to go for casual dining. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Liked to see that the chef and the manager (I'm guessing) were going to tables and talking to customers. I would definitely go back for a casual evening.

Felt rushed food kept coming out before the apps were done. No consideration for the client just wanting to enjoy dinner. A shame the food was good. Probably will not go back

The food is always great & the staff is friendly & welcoming. While a Saturday night is busy, there was no wait for the table I had reserved for our group. Our orders were put in and delivered promptly. Great meal with family and friends. The only downside was so many people had the same idea so it was a bit loud for the smallish space, (which makes it feel cozy, which i love). We were placed in a corner - which I was grateful for - it was still on the loud side. Other than the volume & a dinner-mate's concern about a space heater right next to the sink in the ladies room (?electricity & water?) it was a nice night out. My Toscana salad with shrimp was delectable & my companions meals were equally great. I managed to squeeze a few bites of dessert in - thank goodness we all split it! It was so good and a shame to waste a single morsel. I appreciate a varied offering of wine & drinks & so did the rest of the table.

On my first bite, I literally stopped and said "God, this is good". In fact, it is so outstandingly good that I have my takeout plate in front of me and I came here to say this while eating. Yes, that good. The restaurant itself is very pretty and cozy, I was very well served. You can eat cheaper, sure, but you cannot eat better than here.

Da Capo is a great place for all occasions. The noise level is moderate, but somehow not bothersome. The staff is second to none. No matter how busy, they treat each customer like they are the only one in the restaurant. The food is fresh daily and always GREAT, especially the pizza.

We returned to da Capo’s for their haddock entree since it was so spot on perfect the week before but, unfortunately, we did not experience the same hot, cooked to order haddock entree this week. :-(

Our meals were delicious and they were nicely sized portions. The service from when we walked in to when we left was wonderful. I was also at DaCapo last week for New Years Eve for dinner and drinks, the wait staff was very warm and attentive. The atmosphere is cozy and definitely recommended!

After being seated, we waited patiently for a server to notice us. It wasn’t too long though, before the manager came over, apologized and immediately sent over Aldi to help us. Aldi also apologized and from then on, we couldn’t have asked for better service! They even brought over an appetizer on the house. The whole experience was a great example of a well-managed business. We can’t wait to go back.

Dining experience started out great. The wait staff was very accommodating as we had a baby and needed a table off the beaten path. Server was extremely attentive at the beginning and the wine and apps(mussels, calamari, and de Capo chips) were great. We took our time ordering dinner as we were with friends and catching up. After we ordered meals our server seemed to completely disappear. Someone else delivered our meals. I ordered the scallops and they were terrible. The risotto that accompanied them was crunchy and not done, and the scallops were gritty and salty. I would have sent it back, but again, our server was MIA. The other three individuals I was with did enjoy their meals, hence the 3 star rating.

We had reservations for 7:30 but finished our day touring early and decided to go and see if they could accommodate us at 6:30. There was a long line of cars waiting to get into the parking lot so we weren’t holding out much hope but when we got in they sat us immediately. Waitress was wonderful, food was amazing but the noise level was borderline deafening to me. Noise aside I would definitely come back here when visiting the area

Another solid dinner from DaCapo. I reserved for the bar area as we like that ambiance, but they initially were trying to seat us in the main area (more casual and can get loud with families). We asked to be seated in the bar area and they agreed. Our server was very good - attentive despite it being a busy friday night. We had some of the craft cocktails - always well done -- these are seasonal wit cider, apple, & I believe even a pumpkin cocktail. Also an excellent beer selection and wine list. Dinner was very good - steaks, seafood, pasta - great variety. Desserts can be limited here and our experience is the chocolate mousse cake is served slightly frozen. We asked about warming it & our server said that probably wasn't a good idea, but she warmed the plate which worked very well! Thank you!

Lobster Linguini special was absolutely delicious, seemed like more than one lobster was in it. The Chicken Marsala was also excellent , very tasty and satisfying. Great ambiance and service very attentive. Parking not a problem since there's plenty at the village shoppes. Locals do take out.
