Everything I have tried at Capri is excellent. When I don't feel like driving and still want a satisfying meal, this is a go to destination. This is an upscale eatery not suitable for very young children because it may take a while to complete the meal. Recommended items include the eggplant parmesan and any of the veal dishes. Give...

Definition of authentic Italian food! The porcini mushroom sachetti pasta was mind blowing! Arancini appetizer had the best vodka sauce I had ever tasted! And the chocolate lava cake was the perfect chocolate lovers dessert. On top of all of that, they have a huge wine selection, many offered by the glass, and each to suite any type of meal... More

Another, great meal at Capri. The Dover Sole (on special) was delicious and cooked perfectly. The service was impeccable . A must try if you are in Downers Grove.

Our reservations were for 7, and it was 7:20 before we were seated. They explained there was a party of 30 that was just finishing, and that was the reason for the delay in seating us. They asked us to wait at the bar. Our calamari was very good -- lightly breaded, and enough to share. The wine was a... More

I ordered cup of cream of chicken and veal marsala. The soup came out promptly, but as I told the server there was less chicken in that cup of soup than one would find in a single cube of chicken in a can of Campbell's chicken soup. She apologized and said she would pass on the complaint. Never did. Later... More

The food is average at best. The customer service from hostess to manager is non-existent. Avoid them. Far better choices in Downers Grove.

Always a great time at the Capri Bar. Martinis made right. All fresh homemade pasta which is not common in most restaurants. Great food and ownership. Order the chicken marsala.

It was always my policy not to do a review unless it was really good. But lately it's dawning on me that it's doing a disservice to those restaurants that are excellent. Capri - we've been there about 4-5 times. And there'a ALWAYS one consistent problem: reservation or not, you're going to wait. Sometimes 10-15 minutes, this last time 20... More

I was in town on business and had not been to Capri in this location since they opened. I craved Italian so I made a reservation here. Waitress recommended house special of penne alla vodka with sausage. Not something I would normally offer but so glad I did. Fresh, homemade pasta with great tasting sausage in a creamy sauce. Excellent... More

This is a great spot for Italian in the heart of Downers Grove. I've eaten here several times over the past few years either with the Mrs or with the entire family. Every dining experience has been a hit. The last trip even turned us on to a new bottle of red...
