It was always my policy not to do a review unless it was really good. But lately it's dawning on me that it's doing a disservice to those restaurants that are excellent. Capri - we've been there about 4-5 times. And there'a ALWAYS one consistent problem: reservation or not, you're going to wait. Sometimes 10-15 minutes, this last time 20... More

This is a great spot for Italian in the heart of Downers Grove. I've eaten here several times over the past few years either with the Mrs or with the entire family. Every dining experience has been a hit. The last trip even turned us on to a new bottle of red...

Capri was outstanding from the moment we walked in! They were friendly, knowledgeable and provided top-notch customer service. The attentive staff completely made my friends Bday Celebration so very special!! The food was delicious, the wine selection was impressive and the staff was outstanding!! Thank you for making our night so enjoyable :)

We stopped in here early evening on a Wednesday. Only a few other diners at that time, but more came in as the meal went on. The appearance is downright elegant and inviting. The menu is extensive with many dishes that are simply not typically seen elsewhere. Osso buco was offered as a specialty item of the day, so two... More

Stopped by on a Tuesday night and not crowded. We placed our order which was a simple pasta dish. After asking our waitress for the 4th time after 40 minutes where our meal was, she finally brought it to us, it was not hot, nor much flavor. This was our 3rd time here and each time the service is very... More

I am glad, and astounded, to see that the CAPRI is so busy. I am glad for them. My husband and I decided to try it one evening. No Prices on the Menu. Should have raised our "!Walk Out, NOW!" radar. We stayed. This is only my personal opinion: What the Heck??? The food was Good. Not Memorable. Our dinner,... More

My friends and I enjoy going to Capri on Thursday nights for the $5 martinis and delicious appetizers. The service is first class.
