“The real deal Italian. Marsala chicken scrumptious.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

This one's a gem. The entry around the back was odd, but when you walk in you feel like you discovered a cool, hidden place where only special people get to eat. The service and the hostess were welcoming. Everything we ate from beginning to finish was great. We were very happy to take home leftovers and couldn't wait to eat them. I forgot my manners and licked my fingers while eating the marsala because it was that good. The murals and atmosphere give you that early Italian immigrant feel and it makes you feel at home.

“Do not have to go far for fabulous pizza....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

... If you live in rockford. I just love Capri pizza. The crust is perfectly crunchy and the sauce is yummy. The sausage is spicy and they really load on the cheese. My spouse and I go to Chicago frequently and I have yet to find better pizza even in Chicago. The atmosphere is genuine Italian and very cozy.

“Good Affordable Food & Romantic Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

My fiance and I were met with a big smile and seated. We felt like we were in Italy because of the Italian art on the walls, rod-iron chandeliers, and dark wood. This is a great first date place. We ordered the pizza and tiramisu. Pizza was delicious with quality ingredients along with their homemade tiramisu that the son makes. It is very delicious and extremely affordable. You won't be disappointed!

“Good Food, Great Service and Cozy Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Our first trip to this restaurant and we will go back next time we are in Rockford! Serving sizes were plentiful and we started out with the baked goat cheese-delicious. We had the Capri Combo of Chicken Parmesean and Lasagna, and had the Italian Vegetable soup instead of a salad. The soup was flavorful and the beef tender. The Combo plate was perfect and we finished off our meal with the ice cream (included) Service was speedy even though they were very busy. It is the kind of place where you just want to linger after your meal and enjoy a cup of coffee.

“Capri”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Best thin crust pizza in town. Consistantly good. This place seems to have been around for years, and is usually busy on weekends. A great place to go before an IceHogs game. The Capri salad as an appetizer is a winner. Chicken Marsala and eggplant parmesan are pretty good too, but most of the diners are eating pizza, so for your first time, just go with the flow, and you won't be disappointed.
