The food was good but not hot. The table seating was not handled well- our friends were at another table for 30 minutes until we found them. The wait for our food was very long- admittedly it was the Saturday after Valentines day and they were very busy with large parties. We have been there a few times and I think this is a unique letdown. We will go back!

We went on Valentines Day, which was also our anniversary. First, I should have done a better job at vetting this place. One big issue that you should know, is that there is no bar, only wine and beer! There were not specials for the evening. The waiter had no experience opening a bottle of Prosecco because they don’t sell that much there. We ordered the calamari for an appetizer. It was cold. The shrimp scampi was very tasty, but it’s “peel your own”! My husband got the white fish, which he said was ok. Clearly this is a good everyday place to come, but not for a special occasion!
The reason I gave it 3 stars is because I should have known better.

Fantastic, authentic Italian food in Raleigh!!!! Fun vibe and the food is really outstanding! I feel like I am in a Cafe in Italy. Dino and his team are so warm, friendly, sincere and gracious. We love Capri - weeknight dinner or a special occasion - perfect every time and so fun and relaxing!

Excellent authentic Italian food and supreme service which is hard to find with a large group. Would recommend for a quiet "date night" or a night out with several friends.

The food was delicious, the service excellent and the atmosphere welcoming and warm. I love Capri! If you are looking for authentic Italian cuisine, this is the place to go in Raleigh. We had a group of 8- everyone's order was different and we were all thrilled with our meals. In face, the group has decided that this is our new go to for our group.

Friends introduced me to Cappri in August and I could not wait to treat family members to a meal there. My son-in-law is usually very hard to please and has put it n his list of places to which he would like to return.

So sad. Place was empty on a Friday night. Very disappointed with the marinara sauce, tasted like it was from a jar of ragu, was very bland. Needless to say, we will not be back.

This is a nice date place, good ambiance . The service was nice but only three stars because I didn’t care at all for what I ordered and I got the feeling they were incensed. Didn’t ask if I’d like to try something else even though I barely touched what I had. It just wasn’t good. However, everyone else in my part enjoyed their meal. I just recommend avoiding the seafood ravioli. Also, very limited wine menu and no mixed drinks.

Capri is a sweet place tucked away in a strip center.
The food was average the night we dined and the service was nonchalant. My husband, who rarely says anything about the service commented that the waiter seemed a bit “surly.” I think it may have been an off night.

I ordered the linguini with pesto and shrimp. It was good; however, the pesto made it very dry. I and one of the other group ordered it and decided to pour some olive oil over it to lubricate the pasta.

The food was good and the server was accommodating. Our food was very SLOW in coming. This was our first time there so don’t know if the slow service is typical.

We dined at the restaurant for the first time based on Trip Advisors review. It is tucked away in the corner of a strip shopping center near a Fresh Market. It was a little difficult to find for someone not familiar with the area. It is not the type of Italian where pizza and spaghetti and meatballs are featured but there is a large selection of meat, fish and poultry dishes. I ordered the caprese salad. The fresh mozzarella cheese was exceptional but the tomatoes were not quite ripe. My wife ordered salmon picata which was delicious - prepared medium as ordered and served hot. I ordered the veal Sinatra with green beans and artichokes. The green beans were crisp and tasty. The veal was breaded and sliced with a nice sauce. Service was prompt. Salads and entrees were delivered quickly.

This was a perfect date night, great wine, great service (the specials were all spoken to us with no reading or confusion), the antipasti was perfect and fresh, the meal was hot and the shrimp on my scampi was definitely LARGE gulf shrimp, my girlfriends cheese ravioli was most likely homemade and she raved about it too. We finished it off with a gelato and a cappuccino, oh and the Chianti was perfect (even with the white sauce). Our waiter and waitress (in training is my guess) were excellent. This is going to be a regular special date night restaurant for us.

There were 4 of us and 3 of felt like the food was mediocre. It was early in the evening and they were not busy, yet our food wasn’t very hot. Not interested in returning.

I’ve been going to Capri for years. It’s a hidden nugget of gold not in an obvious restaurant area. The dishes are tasty with traditional as well as creative twists. The restaurant does not seat a large number of guests with a more quaint interior, which I prefer. I’m looking forward to my next outing to Capri!

Capri is one of our favorite restaurants. The staff members make you feel like family. The food is always wonderful and portions are plentiful. There are few places we would rather eat; maybe Italy?
