We went for brunch on a recent Sunday during a Pats game. Our server was awesome and the food was creative and very satisfying. The restaurant was packed due to the game so the noise level was off the charts, but it was still a fun and energetic place to be.

great place for a family brunch. arrived at 10 AM on sunday for brunch (they open at 10). the front door was locked, but another patron that was waiting inside let us in. i let the hostess know we were there, but it took a few minutes for them to seat us, as it appeared they weren't ready for service yet. when i went to sit down, my seat had a puddle of water in it (i'm guessing from someone wiping down the chairs before service?), so i let the hostess know. they were very apologetic and offered to provide dry cleaning or anything (not necessary, but grateful for the gesture). they then brought my family a few of their specialty donuts, which were delicious. i won't say the donuts were worth sitting in a puddle on my chair, but i really appreciated the gesture and quite enjoyed them. i had the scrambled eggs dish for brunch, as did my mother in law. the dish was okay, not great. my husband had the hash dish with sweet potatoes (as did my sister in law) - yummy. my niece had the tiramisu pancakes, which i didn't try, but they looked delicious and my niece and those that tried them enjoyed. my father in law had the breakfast pizza, which he really liked. overall a nice experience, even though it started a little shaky. loved the roaring fire and the open kitchen. look forward to going back.

The food and decor very good.
The place is extremely noisy however, because of the high ceiling. Our ears hurt!
The service was not good. We missed dessert because they forgot to let us know that the kitchen would close by the time we would have finished dinner .

Had planned a date night with my husband. Made the trek all the way out to the edge of West Broadway about a 20 minute walk from the nearest T stop, and discovered the restaurant refused to honor our reservation, worse yet could only offer uncomfortable and noisy 'seats at the bar'. Unforgivable. We were forced to turn around and travel all the way home.

Been meaning to try Capo for a while - was not disappointed!! Yes, it was pretty loud, but it's a large and popular restaurant that turns into a club/bar late night, so to be expected. They had just released the fall menu items the day we went, and we tried a fair few of them.

Fall Sangria - delicious. didn't even ask what was in it, could've had a pitcher to myself.
Butternut Squash ravioli - delicious. Great complimenting flavors, truffles, sauce, yum.
Fall Salted Caramel Parfait Dessert - amazing. salted caramel, gingerbread cake, gelato and some other great tasting crunchy bites - would recommend to a friend at any time, but especially appropriate for fall!

wait staff was super friendly and helpful, gave great recommendations.

casual vibe with great food - definitely will return!!

The bartender Danielle was on her game. She was very friendly and very attentive to our needs. The food was outstanding as always. Lauren has been our server many times and has also been excellent. I have a two year old and you have very good options for little ones. I can eat here everyday if my budget could afford it.

Food is solid and the lower level provides dining-entertainment options. The only negative is the noise level is such that you can barely communicate with the person across the table. There must be something they can do to soften the noise!

Love the wine on tap and pasta dishes. Enjoy sharing different pasta dishes, appetizers and salads (italian chop is a favorite). The restaurant is really, really loud and while it adds to the ambiance, it can be hard to hear. You used to be able to go downstairs to the speakeasy with a reservation in the dining room, but that is no longer an option. As the restaurant becomes more popular, it's turning more into a "Southie establishment" and attracting a "yuppie" crowd.

Capo was amazing! They kindly accommodated a dairy-free customer, which is difficult at an Italian restaurant. I will definitely come again! Also a great idea to eat here before venturing downstairs to the Supper Club.

Great restaurant. Amazing food. The crowd however was off putting as it was a much younger, loud, under dressed crowd. When paying in the 300$ range for a dinner for 4, I wasn’t excited about the fact that the bros were high fiving and drunk 20 year old girls in jeans were puking in the bathroom at 830pm.

This is rare--a 5-star value. Capo is an excellent dining choice with reasonable prices especially on Wed when pasta is all you can eat. The cauliflower appetizer was tasty, different and ample. The house red wine, a blend of mostly sangiovese, was very good. Tiramisu terrific! Dining in Boston is affordable and enjoyable.

I can’t get over how consistent this place is! I love coming to this restaurant because they are always so friendly. The entire staff much be hand picked because they all have amazing qualities. My favorite dish is the raviolis. First time I walked by this place there is actually someone standing outside that I chatted with her a couple of minutes that happened to work there! I’m not sure if he’s a manager or owner but he was very happy to be there. I love Capo! I would highly recommend this place!
