Always delicious, always friendly, like a home away from home. Capri is a regular eatery for us, for good reason. The Veal Scallopine was delicious. Bruschetta and Olives a meal in itself. Grilled Vegetable just right. Fruit Plate magnificent!

I suspect this restaurant hasn’t changed in 80 years— and I hope it never does. This is a true taste of Italy. The food, the wine, the atmosphere is authentic Italy at its best. Big portions, reasonable price, impeccable service. Truest perfect!
