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

We stopped at this restaurant knowing nothing but information on a few reviews. Very pleasantly surprised. One peron in our party ordered the Sunday gravy dish (not positive on the name). I grew up in a home where Sunday pasta gravy was the rule and I thought it was audacious to imply that a restaurant could make something as delicious... More

Caring service along with a large menu of well prepared meals. Makes you feel like "you are part of the family" Full bar along with an outstanding wine list. Entertainment on Thurs. evenings enhances the experience.

We made reservations for 3 people for dinner at this location. Arrived a few minutes early and on check in the hostess said it would be a short wait. An hour later we were still standing after being told time and again that 'we were next'. She kept seating other people who came in after us. I don't know how... More

This was my first visit to Capri, and I will come again. The service that our waiter provided for us was excellent, the food was good and the prices were reasonable for the location. The menu is quite extensive you will have no problem finding something for everyone. The atmosphere is inviting and in a great location in downtown Downers.... More
