We belive great food is born from fresh and natural ingredients, and therefore insist on using the finest produce available - we do not do shortcuts.
Whether it's our daily specials and fresh pasta, a tasting menu that begins with prosciutto and cheese directly from Italy - our team at Mama Capri is confident you will enjoy our menu.
We welcome you and look forward to seeing you soon.
Took a friend here for his birthday. While the ambiance and decor was unflatteringly coastal and marginally confused, the food was decent. The calamari is great, the bruschetta is fair, and as far as entrees are concerned, you should probably order a pasta dish. The service was alright. The food seemed to take a bit long, but we didn’t mind too much thanks to the appetizers and delightful conversation. Come here if you must, and you likely won’t be disappointed, but it’s certainly not a first option or something you need to plan ahead.
It was a really great restaurant with pasta like in Italy!! 🤗
Excellent food, nice selection of wine.
Good food, good service and good value. Not quite 5* quality but I enjoyed it
Amazing attention and the food was fabulous.
Very much enjoyed our late lunch/early dinner. The lemon Vinaigrette dressing on the arugula salad was delicious. Loved the meatballs, too.
We were celebrating a birthday and decided to try it but we weren't very impressed. super casual, no ambiance/decor. The octopus carpaccio appetizer was amazing. The homemade pasta quality was very good. The sauces on the Gnocchi and cavatelli with squid ragu were too salty. The Polipetti Affogati was tasty and tender but the however considering it is an entree, the portion was too small. It was served only with 2 slices of bread. Meatballs were good but didn't come with anything, I find this odd. Both of those entrees mentioned should have come with pasta. The menu is extremely limited. Maybe it's an ok neighborhood place for a weeknight.
Meal was really delicious, especially the eggplant and tomato side dish. Service was outstanding!!
Fritto misto was great
The pasta is amazing! Cooked al dente!
We would def come back
Lovely dinner, homemade pastas were delicious as was the salmon and risotto. We sat outside - service was friendly and accommodating. Nice wine selection. Will be back :)
I live this place. Best cannolis I ever had and I am a long time Carroll Gardens’ resident.
I am a matchmaker, and I made this reservation on behalf of a client of mine. She was running late and the restaurant staff were very accommodating and helpful with relaying the information to her date. Both diners said the neighborhood was really cute, the ambiance of the restaurant was excellent for date night, and the food was top notch. I will absolutely send future clients here for dates.
The food was fantastic and the service was exceptional! We had such lovely experience.
Lovely setting, delicious food, friendly service. What’s better than that?
Great food and service. A little piece of Capri and Naples found in Brooklyn.
Great food & service. Waitress provided amazing service-explanation, no pressure, follow up. Food including fried calamari and vongolle were excellent-cooked perfectly. Can't wait to go back.
Great outdoor dining experience
I never write reviews and that I’m writing one now is a testament to this restaurant. Stunning decor, super friendly staff, between 3 people we ordered 6 dishes and I can’t decide what was the best. Will absolutely go back- you will not regret eating here!
The food was delicious! We each had a pasta dish. It’s a very cute place.
The food was excellent
everything is perfect, the food is really great!
Suggestion: Make sure you make a reservation before you go. After 7, This place really fills up. Great intimate restaurant with wonderful Italian comfort food. In the center of smith street you get service.
Great service and dining environment!
Our order was sour, off or expired (burrata). We have had this dish in many restaurants and have never returned food but in this case we returned it. No big deal...
Then the chef came out to argue with us, telling us we are “wrong” and that it’s imported from Italy. We said no problem but there are many opportunities for dairy imported from Italy to go bad. He made it a much bigger deal than it needed to be.
The rest of the food was ok (nothing amazing) and we waited over 20 minutes to get the bill. They tried to charge us for the dish we returned. No apology, no humility.
I wouldn’t come back.
Good value, friendly service. Low key and casual. Good place for conversations
one hour and a half of waiting time for pasta is not acceptable. sorry.
Authentic Italian food with consistent good service.
Awesome experience at Mama Capri. We enjoyed it thoroughly. Definitely make reservations! We will return.
The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very nice and quaint, while still sending hip vibes.
We weren't sure what to expect from a restaurant that aspires to evoke a feel of the Amalfi Coast--ambitious, to say the least. They delivered. The food was excellent! We loved the risotto, the spaghetti with zucchini and the baby octopus. It was BYOB but a liquor license was forthcoming. I look forward to going back.
