“Italian food at the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

The Isle of Capri with breath taking views of the ocean has great ambiance, wonderful food and service. The veal piccata and veal with eggplant were some of the best we have ever had. Also, they have an awesome bar to have drinks before dinner overlooking the ocean. It was a great restaurant to celebrate my best friend's Birthday!

“Lovely view and great food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Even an overcast and drizzly evening couldn't spoil our dinner at this restaurant. The reservations and wait staff were helpful, the view was wonderful, and the food was excellent. Since it was our 50th wedding anniversary, we were looking for something really special. This was it!

“Check It Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

You'd never guess at the top of a Holiday Inn you'd find a restaurant like this. Great view of the ocean and unbelievable service. We were lucky enough to have Brenden as our waiter for the evening. We ordered tableside Caesar salad. What a treat. He did a fantastic job from the salad to the entrée right to the dessert. The wine list is also extensive. He helped us make the right decision to compliment our dinners. If your in Va Beach you have to check this place out... Shelly

“Best couple's moment of our vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

We were astounded that just walking in from the street we would fall into one of the best meals and best experiences of our visit to the beach. Being on the top floor of the Holiday Inn gave it a fabulous view, especially of the fighter jets returning to their air base. The wine selection is extensive, good selections in all price ranges. The staff was attentive and accommodating. They gave us a better table when one came available and they modified one of the dishes , manicotti pomodoro, for my wife without any hassle. She loved it. My fruticose di mare had more seafood than I could eat.

“Unbelievable view....outstanding service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Ignore the fact that is restaurant is in a Holiday Inn! The service and view are outstanding. In fact, we went back the very next night (make sure you have reservations on the weekend!). The wait people are all very well trained and the food is excellent. We had the table side prepared Cesar salad and it was superb! The moon rising over the beach was unbelievable! This may not have been the best Italian food we've ever eaten (we are from the NYC area), but it certainly exceeded our expectations for a beachfront restaurant.
