Great food. Great service…tables are a bit too close to one another if you have a party over four but definitely recommend Isle of Capri!

I really enjoyed my dinner here. I took my boyfriend for his birthday dinner. We were sat immediately and the food was out fast and hot! Definitely plan on coming back after daylight savings so that I can enjoy the view!

Adult daughter's birthday dinner with son-in-law and my friend. As expected, outstanding meal in every way! Alex is among the many professional servers at IoC and was most attentive and helpful. The table-side Caesar is not just great food but an event that should be on every "Top 10 Must-Do's in VaBeach"! Only regret is I opted for fillet (always my favorite and perfect this time!) and did not get to try the grilled rock fish special ..... another visit a definitely be made forthwith. Thank you Pasquale for keeping IoC such a great place. Definitely in my top 10 and I highly recommend.

Great Italian food and service. Best shecrab soup on the oceanfront! I highly recommend this restaurant for adults. Ambiance is great. View of the ocean from every seat. One of the best in Virginia Beach for sure.

I was celebrating my birthday out of town and decided to try Isle of Capri for my birthday dinner. Kudos to the elderly gentleman who waited on my table and serenaded me while creating the best Caesar salad I ever had. The hostess wasn't friendly but I would definitely return to this restaurant when I'm in town.

My BFF’s 60th Birthday! Vinnie made it special! Everything was absolutely wonderful! She had the angel hair & meatballs, I chose angel hair with sausage & peppers. The crab soup and Caesar salad tableside were awesome. Mozart cake and lemon cake (as suggested). Thank you, Vinnie, for making it a beautiful birthday!

Service was EXCELLENT by all accounts (Anthony is superb). Seating by the windows does not offer a view of the oceanfront at night due to the fogging between the window panes so that was a disappointment. Food is well presented but some dishes were better than others. The Veal dishes were good. The Flounder (a special on the menu that night) was very fishy tasting (unusual) and sub-par overall. The table side Caesar was good but not the best I've had. We were never offered a refill on the bread (no, we didn't ask either). The Calamari appetizer serving size was minimal but their marinara was excellent. Toast rounds with the goat cheese appetizer are too large (should be more bite size or they just fall apart when you bite into them because they are too hard). Goat cheese was unusually bland. The appetizer itself is okay but nothing to write home about. Wouldn't order it again.

For the total cost (our bill was almost 400over $350 with tip) for 4 ppl, it was not worth what we paid. I find this place overrated. As for an upscale fine dining restaurant, the ambience is mediocre. I observed who I assume was the manager stop by several other surrounding tables to ask how everything was but never once came over to our table.

This restaurant is a hidden gem. The food is excellent and the Italian waiters lend a true flavor of Italy to the dining experience. The restaurant has a lovely ambiance and overlooks the ocean. It has become our favorite place to eat on our visits to Virginia Beach. The prices are reasonable for an upscale restaurant. I recommend the rack of lamb and chocolate torte.

Great service, food and drinks. Went there to celebrate a birthday and requested (and got) a window seat so we could watch the sunset. Hadn't realized that all the seating has good views whether you are right next to the window or not. Dedicated elevator takes you up to the 6th floor restaurant and they have valet parking. We both had different bourbon cocktails and they were great. The bread and olives they brought out before we ordered were also delicious but probably filled us up too much before the entrees (I guess we need a bit more self control). I'd highly recommend for a romantic dinner or just a nice night out. This was recommended to us by my sister. She went with husband and 3 kids (11-14) and the kids really liked it too.

So disappointing. First time there. Had noted in reservation that it was my birthday. Not only was it never mentioned by the hostess who seated us, it was never mentioned by the service staff (although other birthdays were being celebrated and sung by staff throughout the night). We had asked for a window table in the reservation and the surly hostess almost growled when I asked to change to an available table we saw by the window. The food was mediocre. Window views were dirty and decor seriously needs a refresh. Much better Italian restaurants in town other than this one. Would not recommend.

Would we eat there again absolutely. We have eaten there numerous of times and throughly enjoyed it. On this specific evening, they had a wedding in the back. It took us an extra 15-20 before we were seated and we had reservations and there was plenty of tables available. The bartender was awesome. The front hostess was not in the best spirits. After waiting for over 16 minutes we asked about our reservations. She said as soon as they clear a table. Low and behold the electric goes out in the midst of it all. So I tell my husband jokingly, “Well, tonight we eat by candlelight!” The waiter we had was running around like he had bees flying around his head trying to keep up with the orders and drinks from the four tables he had in our section. I had the Veal Marsala and it was amazing. My husband had the lamb chops which he had before and he loved it! BUT, this time the lamb was bloody red. Instead of complaining because the Mgr was running around trying to keep everything and everyone organized which didn’t go so well. The temperature was freezing in our section so I ask the lady if they could turn the air up because it was freezing. Our food would get chilled due to the temperature. My husband ate around his lamb chops and left practically all of it. All I can say is we had better days!!!

Incredible location with a beautiful view of Virginia Beach and the Atlantic from their 6th floor position.! Valet parking makes it easily accessible.
Service (Marilyn) was stellar--professional, personable, knowledgeable of menu and ingredients, and attentive. Tableside Caesar salad was perfect, linguine vongole had a dozen tasty, tender clams in the shell over pasta in a delicious white wine sauce. The veal piccata was tender, cooked perfectly with just the right lemon and caper prep.
Would definitely recommend and will return next time in Va. Beach.

Isle of Capri is always amazing. Whether your going for a special occasion or just a delicious meal. Their famous table side Caesar salad is definitely a must. You can not go wrong with any meal on their menu but make sure you finish it with a piece of Mozart cake for dessert.

Highly recommend!
