I consider Capri one of my favorite places to dine. I have never had anything but outstanding service and great food at every visit.
I prefer the bar seating but the dining room is nice as well.

Probably one of our favorite Indy restaurants that only the locals and foodies know about. Since it's off the beaten path and not visible from Keystone Ave, many drive right past it on the way to Broad Ripple or Keystone Crossing. My recommendation is "don't do that!" The wood fire in the fireplace, low music, dimly lit bar area is our "go to" on date night. You never know who you'll be rubbing elbows with, most likely some of the Indy "blue bloods" from the Meridian Kessler area.

Capri is our favorite Indianapolis Italian restaurant and dinner today did not disappoint. Had an early reservation at 6P and the hostess led us to a seat in the bar area where there were already a few customers. The bar area has several TV’s and is generally noisier than the larger main restaurant. We requested seating in the main dining room and were quickly accommodated. Even though we were the only table in that section, the server made us feel welcome and was friendly the whole evening. Home made pasta is their specialty but tonight I tried the spare rib special which was very tender with a tasty sauce. Wife had the fettuccine with shrimp in white sauce and loved it. Dessert was a good cheesecake and an excellent authentic Italian cappuccino. The whole time we had the main dining room to ourselves, like a private room. Tuesday was a great day to dine at Capri!

Elina was our server. She was very attentive and helpful. Aaron spoke with us a couple times and was excellent. We were all interested in the Capri history. The food was excellent. We came for an Italian dinner and it was everything we expected, from ambiance to service to wonderful food, we could not have asked for more.

We ordered the Spaghetti and Bolognese and our friends ordered the Lasagna. If we hadn’t split the spaghetti, we would have to taken some home. The lasagna was too much for our friends so they each took home half of their order. The bread was excellent as well. Gotta stop eating so much of that!

All in all an excellent dining experience. We will definitely be back for more.

Had not been to the Capri in many years but they did not disappoint. I would recommend if you go during the cooler months to request a table by the fireplace. It really adds to ambiance and it is just cozy. Great food, our server was awesome. Just all around great evening. We will be back a little more often.

Our service and food were good. We had a reservation for 7:30 in the bar. Finally by 8 we asked to sit in the dining room. They should have offered us a appetizer or glass of wine for our wait with a reservation.

Some of the very best Italian food in Indianapolis. The service is always exceptional and the atmosphere is similar to the Italian Village in Chicago, rather than what one would expect in Indy.
Don't let the location (a strip mall is across the street) put you off. Once you drive through the gates of Capri, the whole experience is wonderful.

I am a frequent guest at Capri. After the change in ownership I have as skeptical whether they would preserve that very things that made it the best Italian in the city. It has done a good job overall however the I feel as though they are not as good as the use to be.

Food was served cold and was mediocre. Waitress spent 45 minutes of the 2.5 hours we were there chatting up another table. This was especially irritating as we waited for the bill....... Had called ahead to ensure I would be presented with the bill. Had been assured by hostess that I would receive it. Even provided a description of myself. Waitress ignored that request and when I asked about it said, “yes I read that.” After she had just asked how we wanted the check. As her notes indicated I was picking up the bill.... of course then my friends argued about allowing me to do that. Have previously been very happy here which is why I took my guests.

We love the ambience at the Capri. Our waiter was superb. He was also very knowledgable--giving us wine recommendations and explaining the ingredients (off the top of his head) in the after-dinner coffee drinks. All of his suggestions were spot on. Everyone made us feel welcome, and the manager made sure to talk with us several times during the evening. The food was presented well and tasted great, as usual! We'll be back, for sure!

Food was fabulous and with generous portions. Our server was top shelf, being courteous, insightful and prompt. The Capri had fallen off our radar so hadn’t dinned there in years; it won’t be so long before the next time.

Seemed like they hired a lot of new staff to handle an influx of customers that never showed. They seemed confused on tables, menu items and each other. I was taken back when the item I scoped out online was cut out of their menu that night. Food was just ok, yet very expensive. Too many other choices out there.

Our one of our party received her cocktail as the other 2 were done. Later, we canceled our bottle of wine as our dinner arrived and our wine did not. We were 1/2 done with our meal when the glasses for our wine were placed on the table. Needless to say we just drank water. Disappointing

I was looking forward to good Italian food. We went during Devour and ordered the Devour. All of us upgraded to the wedge salad, are great portion size. We all three ordered the same entree, it was a shrimp dish with fettuccine in a white wine sauce. They came out and it looked like a small bowl of fettuccine noodles without sauce, and 6 heated up shrimp in the microwave placed on top. It was neither appealing to the eye or the mouth. With the three selections, it wasn't a good selection and it is obvious that the reduce the portion sizes for the Devour menu. We each ordered a different dessert, the person that upgraded for the cheese cake received a slice as would have been a menu size. The tiramisus and canola was extremely small. The tiramisus was like a 2x2x2 cube, the only thing that made the canolli look large was all the added whip cream.
The service and ambiance was great, but reducing portion sizes for a Devour menu is just not right!

We are frequent visitors to Capri throughout the year but took this time to take advantage of Devour Indy. The restaurant is usually very spacious and reasonably quiet, but they added quite a few more tables to accommodate the extra crowds. I was not a fan of all of that but the meal was delicious!
