    I will definitely never return to this restaurant. The average age diner was 60+. The food was inconsistent, some dishes were mediocre, others just bad. Half eaten plates of food and no one wants to take the rest home should give the staff an idea that the food is just not that good. But the prices were up there with Westchester’s best restaurants. And the worst part of all, the ambiance or lack thereof. The place is small and old and has zero going for it looks wise. Drinks were also weak and watered down. Staff was super nice though.

    Innovative American/Mediterranean-style food. generous portions of each dish prepared to order. Lots of seafood on the menu and as specials. Especially good is the chicken scarparello, not done in chunks but half a chicken and seasoned just right, specifically if you ask them to leave out the hot peppers which our waiter forgot. No problem, they made a new dish. Took a few extra minutes, but worth it. The trout is done just right, as well as the chicken paillard, which is much better than the famous one at a nearby restaurant's signature dish. Looking forward to our next visit and see what is new!

    The service was great. I’ve always liked this place. This time, I ordered the pork chop, entrée, medium rare, it was over cooked and dry.  For the prices that are charged at this restaurant they should deliver meals as they are ordered.

    We were served bad fish. Smelled less than fresh the second it landed on the table. Took a small bite anyway to try and had to spit it out. Hardly got an apology. You would think out of courtesy they would have offered coffee or something but no. How could they not smell the fish was bad when they cooked it??? Never returning to this place

    Their steamed clams appetizer is so tasty, especially with the garlic and pepperoni. Steak frites was delicious with the arugula. The frites were hot and fresh but with a coating that filled the flavor. The branzino was nicely prepared simply grilled. This is one of our favorite “go to” restaurants. We will return soon.

    We went there to celebrate my mom’s 98th birthday. She’s in a wheelchair. The staff was extremely kind and helpful. The food was delicious. We asked for some things prepared differently than on the menu and it was no problem. We love coming here. It was quite so it’s easy to have a conversation.

    Food was very good, solid. We sat in the bar area that has a nice glass roof. Although the weather was dreadful it would be even nicer when the weather is good. The food is really a cross between Italian and Mediterranean. The only thing I don’t recommend is the cappuccino. It was pretty bad. Came out of a breville machine. But other than that I would recommend it to anyone in the area.

    I am surprised that there not many diners on Tuesday evening. The food is so good here. Split the appetizer of a full portion of their mushroom ravioli with peas. For main courses, the swordfish was done perfectly, not rubbery as many restaurants do. The highlight was the special of linquine with real decent sized clams, with a linquica and garlic, done perfectly al dente. Good sized portions. No room for dessert. looking forward to our next visit.

    I absolutely love the Caesar salad here, especially the little white anchovies. I cannot go to capers without ordering the Caesar salad whether I eat it there, or I take it home. Wonderfully casual place to have a nice quiet dinner. A small parking lot, but i’ve always found a parking space available. (Unlike Greenwich Avenue)

    Great local spot and one that keeps it fresh with great specials and overall high-quality food. Service was a bit choppy, but I think they have a big takeout/online order biz going that pulls the servers away to take care of those orders. That is not to say that the servers were not attentive; rather, they were pulled in many directions throughout the dinner.

    Had to come back after such a delightful meal last week. Tonight we had both chicken scarparello dishes. with half sweet and hot peppers and linguine and one with hot peppers with potatoes and asparagus. No chunks of chicken. Each had a half chicken. The rigatoni boognese is one of Westchester's best. The Chicken with lemon was changed to chicken with red sauce to satisfy one person's taste. Vey tasty. The appetizers were the steamed clams, I wrote about last week and we also had the tuna tartare with avocado. A little chunky but well-spiced. They also make a great Aperol spritzer.a very satisfactory meal for people who eat out very often.

    We have been away too long. Their food is still fabulous. Mushroom ravioli and steamed clams as appetizers are almost a main course. Both are true to their natural flavors with a chorizo accent on the clams. The main courses of mussels, seafood risotto, and rigatoni bolognese were all top-notch. The wines-by-the-glass menu is well crafted, with each of us having a different but delicious wine. Already, we have a reservation next week!

    Capers was a "rare gem" during our first dinner there on June 27th. The food was yummy: visually appealing and delicious. Service was top notch. It was my wife's birthday, and they sang to her and gave her a dessert. The restaurant decor was a little sparse for this price class, but overall I highly recommend you try it.
