I really enjoyed the Braciola with the Sunday gravy.

I had not had Braciola for a long time and I had a taste fir it and i found this place on the Internet and it did not disappoint. This was a really nice place to visit and the people here were all a delight and I would recommend this venue to all. My first new restaurant visit of 2015.

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.

We tried this restaurant based on wonderful reviews. We did not enjoy at all. Service was slow, waiter not overly pleasant. Bread served was nothing more than white sliced bread served cold. Olive oil on table was not even evvo. My tortellini with peas was hidden somewhere under the mound of peas on top. Overkill. My husband's chicken Marsala was... More

We dine at this restaurant about once a month. Overall food is very good and nice atmosphere. Try the specials or homemade pastas. Service can be challenged at times. Great pour on a glass of wine!

This was our first trip to Capri. We were downtown, and needed dinner on the way home to Aurora. My son wanted a restaurant "anywhere I can watch trains". The rest of us wanted more than fast food. We found Capri on the web, and decided to give it a try. The staff was very accommodating of our table location... More

We have consistently enjoyed (at least 2 x per month for 4 years) the Capri restaurant in downtown Downers Grove. The owner and staff know us now by name and face! Although, we are not alone....Brian and his staff are very welcoming, intelligent, thorough, and helpful to all comers! The food is always excellent and my husband jokes that he... More

My husband and I were looking for an italian restaurant to celebrate my birthday, and this one seemed to be well-rated, so we gave it a try. What a delight. The restaurant is very well located in a corner property in the heart of downtown Downers Grove. It's a block away from an ample parking garage, and a few steps... More

We were delighted with this Capri restaurant. It's ambience is much nicer than the Capri in Palos Heights. White table cloths, nice bar,proper spacing of tables. The service was good and management was very accommodating offering to buy us a round of drinks for a minor misstep. The Veal chop oreganata was outstanding, Chicken Cacciatore very good as was the... More
