Although we very much appreciate that they are 100% gluten free, we will never go back. First and foremost, this restaurant should have focused on Italian quality...I would be soooo shocked if the owners are Italian. The sauce, which is a staple of Italian food, was inedible. It tasted like it came out of a Chef Boyardee can. The pasta, although gluten free, tasted like corn fritos. There are soooo many wonderful gluten free pastas on the market...this was soooo sub-par. The prices were ridiculously high for the quality and amount of food that we were served. For a family of 5, 2 adults and 3 young children, our bill was $150 - no alcohol or desserts, just water, 2 appetizers, entrees, and tax!! That is ridiculous! Initially, we ordered 2 appetizers, an adult entree for our 9yo, and a pasta to split for our 7 & 5yos, and an entree for my husband & I to split. Our children inhaled the small appetizers but we had high hopes for the entrees, as it was "Italian" and most Italian restaurants have decent portions, plus our server remarked at how large they were as well. My entree looked like a child's portion and our special request "pasta with butter/oil and cheese" was less than 1/2c. I quickly ordered another pasta and an entree for my husband because the portions were ridiculous!! The server quickly responded that it would take a LONG time because they were made to order...I understand that but when she said that the pasta portion was "quite large" I was not expecting "large" to be 1/2c!! Fast-forward to the end of the meal...we received our bill. Our daughters' "pasta with oil and cheese" (1/3c portion), which is standard on ANY Italian restaurant children's menu were $19 EACH!!! Are you kidding me????? That would cost me less than $2/each to make at home!!!! I just paid $40 for 2 kids' sub-par (remember...it tastes like corn fritos) pasta and butter!!!! NEVER AGAIN!! I guess I could kind of understand if the food was GREAT...but I could make MUCH better food at home! :( :( Shame on you, Caprese!!!
