A very pleasant surprise!

There were 3 of us. Started off with the fig flatbread;prosciutto, fig jam, gorgonzola - I've had it before and it was really good. This time it was mostly jam - hard pressed to find the drop of cheese and prosciutto. Also had the stuffed boat peppers - they were long and not overly hot - very... read more

Noisy atmosphere in the crowded cramped dining room. Food really just ok.... Staff is nice enough but not really... Best time I ever had here was at the bar for drinks and appys. Just don't like this restaurant. Tried to like it... Too pricey to not love it!

two lovely ladies were working the bar and I made them aware of a food allergy that I had and both of them were very quick to accommodate me.

Been meaning to try this restaurant for a while. We were disappointed. Atmosphere is very nice. Good for date night. Inside, outside and bar seating. Appears to be very popular. The free bread they give you is very tasty, but the accompanying olive oil is a little bland. Fig flatbread was disappointing. One pasta meal was good. The pappardelle was... More

The restaurant is very attractive and we love the patio dining. Food was good but not anything special. Our server, an attractive young woman, had terrible body odor. I had to turn my face every time she came to our table. It ruined the meal for me.

That was annoying . Wait staff was attentive & friendly..best part of dining here. Food was mediocre at best...I had chicken piccata which barely had... More

Grandson's dinner party, Triple Crown, Great Food, Excellent Service......did I miss anything! Nice atmosphere, wonderful staff! I'm convinced you could pick anything on the menu and have it be successful. I chose the Chiopino...shrimp, clams, calamari over linguini. Was very pricey mostly due alacarte style, but we had lotsa money.

Generally when we visit the greater Wilmington area we end up at at an eatery at Christiana Mall. Good friends recommened Capers & Lemons. The food was over the top. Everything is alacart so you can run up a tab quickly. With drinks , salad and entree, our bill was $80 before tip. A bit higher than we xpected to... More

Took my wife & daughter to dinner on May 9 2015 for what I thought would be a great meal. Unfortunately, I was wrong...something ha changed at this restaurant. Our meals were bland! It almost seemed like they made the sauces in one pot, heated the meat up & then poured some sauce over the meat. In my opinion the... More

I've always ordered pappardelle noodles with bolognese. I was told today I was not allowed to substitute a fresh noodle for a dried noodle. I'm sure fresh vs. dried means something to them but not to me, especially since they've always allowed this in the past. If it was a matter of price I would have gladly paid extra but... More
