First off the prices are very reasonable and many of the entrees are very good. Not every bar stocks Johnny Walker Blue! The calamari appetizer is really special. For service, price and quality I would highly recommend this Capri location. I have not dined at their other restaurants but I will definitely return to Downers Grove.

We live in the area where this restaurant is located and we love going to Capri for special dinners. We have always found the service very personal and accommodating. We have never been disappointed by any dish we ordered and very much enjoy the homey Italian atmosphere. If you are in the Downers Grove area and looking for something special,... More

Comfortable restaurant, located in the down town of Downers Grove across from the RR station, is pleasant 100 seat or so restaurant. It is white table cloth service, with comfortable chairs done in "art deco" Italian style restaurant. The tables are close to each other, however it is not conversation challenged, maybe because piano player and singer are heard throughout... More

We have really enjoyed dining at this restaurant in the past and thought we would like to end the year by having dinner at one of our favorite restaurants - not a good decision. When we arrived we were seated right away at a table so close to another couple that it was almost intrusive! We were handed a flyer... More

We went with another couple on a Sunday evening and thoroughly enjoyed it. Parking was right in front. Not too busy. Staff was very accommodating. We had a variety of dinners and all were very good. Plus there was no rush for us to leave. Just an enjoyable evening !!

We live in the area and have been to Capri about 5 times. Most recently in June 2013. We always enjoy ourselves here. We have made it a habit to come during the time when the Failla Brothers are entertaining. They really make the experience enjoyable singing Frank Sinatra type classics. The food is solid. Our servers never seem to... More

I read reviews so decided to try with family. Didn't meet expectations. Service was sub par. There are too many great restaurants in the area to waste time. I may give them another chance in the future but the food was bland and uneventful.

We had heard good things about Capri, and visited on a recent Friday evening. All four of us agreed that the food was just OK... definitely not great, given the prices. My Linguini Carbonera sauce was thick and heavy, not light and tasty. And despite having reservations, we waiting nearly half an hour for a table. Table service and drinks... More
