It was our first time at Capo"s. We loved the whole experience! We were there for a lunch anniversary. We want to go back for dinner to hear the live music. Food was really good. Service was great. The whole theme and decor made it a fun experience.

Had a really good time here on a Friday night with my husband. Authentic, really good Italian food in a speakeasy with live music (one guy who played guitar and piano). He was interactive with the birthday table up front. We had a cozy booth. The Capo's pasta dish was delicious and his chicken special dish with white wine and caper's was delicious! This is a little out of the way and off the strip but was well worth the 15 min cab from Mandalay. You just aren't likely to hangout in the area after dinner. Only semi-negative thing was they had two people working a section so we felt like they asked us how we were twice as much as we really needed. But they were very attentive and always had anything we needed!

Food was good, not great, but good - the draw is that the restaurant resembles a 20’s speakeasy - very dark and complete with Sinatra & Dean Martin playing in the background - and pictures of Capone and various henchmen on the walls -

As always we had a great time. The look, feel and the food are always outstanding. We will definitely go back on our next visit. We have recommended this place to all our friends who are going to Vegas and always bring family their when they are in town and want to visit Las Vegas. Being an Italian from New York it's great to find great Italian food.

Capos is a hidden gem in Las Vegas. It wasn’t only a wonderful Italian meal, it was an experience. The prices are reasonable, the food is authentic and delicious, the music was perfect and lent itself to the ambience. I will definitely be back with friends and family.

We went on line to find a good place for Italian food and this place came up with lots of glowing reviews. The place has the atmosphere of a 50's supper club...dim lighting, lots of cool memorabilia on the walls. The staff were exceptional and play their roles well as well. Food, and wine were delicious. The crooner was very good and it was simply overall a superb evening. And after all that, I forgot my credit card there when we left...I called the following day, and it was there waiting for me. Great food, great service, great ambiance, and honest, ethical staff...what more can you ask for? My new favorite restaurant...we will be back!

We will eat at Capo’s going forward every time we visit Las Vegas. The meatball appetizer was awesome . The lasagna was enough for two people and the eggplant was some of the best we have ever had. The speak easy entrance is so cool. You are missing out and making a mistake by not visiting. Leave the strip and go have a dinner you wil tell your friends about!

Our food was tasty, a little better than Olive Garden but not as good as Carrabbas or Maggianos. The servers were polite, professional and attentive. The entrees were priced about 50% higher than the competition. The ambiance was appealing for the first 10 minutes or so. The noise level was distracting to the point of making casual conversation difficult. One booth close to ours had a roving magician performing slight of had and card tricks. He and his table were so loud and boisterous that it affected the tables and booths around them. The dark speakeasy vibe wore thin quickly. At first our booth seemed quaint and cozy, after 30 minutes or so, the seating became uncomfortable. The menus had flashlights attached to them in order to read them, again a novelty at first, until you realized that there was no way you would be able to actually see your food. I live in Vegas and brought visiting family here to get an Off-The-Strip dining experience. I can honestly say that I will not be bringing any more friends and family here. In a town with so many stellar dining choices I would say skip Capos and its speakeasy schtick.

We had heard of Capos several years before we finally visited during the NFR last year. We always hesitated because it is off the strip and none of the cabbies or limo drivers we used had heard of Capo's. Let me tell you, it will always be the one restaurant that is on our list to eat at anytime we are in Las Vegas! The food is incredible and the atmosphere is outstanding! We returned again this year and it was as good as we remember. I regret the times we backed out of going there because we couldn’t get anyone to recommend this restaurant.
