Capparelli web site says that their "overall mission is to provide an option for the community and its visitors to enjoy homemade Italian food while making patrons feel comfortable in our family environment." to that I say, Mission Accomplished. they have a decent menu. we...were a family of seven. all servings were quite good, everything arrived at the table at the right time and serving size was perfect. the service is both efficient and professional. I would venture to say that this establish is one of those rock solid community venues that are worth returning to many times. the dining room is pleasant and inviting. there is outdoor seating. very easy access for the elderly. my only comment is that for an American-Italian restaurant, it is probably a bit too pricey by about 10-15%.More

Great little hideaway restaurant. Had supreme pizza and was very good. Service was solid and not too crowded on a Saturday night. Family had chicken Marsala and no complaints. Moderate price.

I found Capparelli's in a Tripadvisor search. It was excellent. Tortellini shrimp primavera came with light, fluffy tortellini. Shrimp were tender cooked. The primavera sauce was perfect. Shrimp farfalle pesto was served with bow tie pasta which was cooked al dente, my preference. Again, shrimp...were perfectly prepared and the sauce was delicious. Caesar salads were fresh, cold, served on chilled plates. The dressing was light and not over powering. The waiter paired perfect wines for us; his service was attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal which we decided was the best during our four days and hope to return on our next trip to San Antonio.More

Amazing food and cleanliness. In these times that we are in, it was wonderful to see the staff go to such length to clean between customers to prevent the spread of disease. I watched the staff clean the check folders and the pens customers were...using. If the are going to this length to clean then you know everything else is getting cleaned just as good. Add to the fact that the food was great only added to the enjoyment.More

Oh my goodness- just delicious!!! My husband ordered the veal piccata and raved over it. Sliced thin and tender. I had the spicy bow tie pasta with chicken and a red cream sauce. So yummy. They have a nice wine selection too. We finished dinner...with the tiramisu. Ellie, our server recommended it and we were thankful that she did. Lauren, the manager, did a splendid job decorating the plate. It was a work of art. Thank you for an enjoyable dinner!!!More

We started with the "Italian Wedding Soup". Wow! It was delicious! Chicken broth with spinach, escarole, carrots, mini shell pasta, and meatballs! Outstanding! Then we shared "The Super Sloppy Texan" an open-faced sandwich on an Italian roll. It had pepperoni, Canadian bacon, salami, mushrooms, black...olives, and jalapenos smothered in red sauce, mozzarella and baked. It was excellent! We finished up with tiramisu. Wife said it was the best ever, I had no argument. They also have a full bar but we had tasty iced tea. We brought home most of the "Texan" and look forward to reheating! Great meal at a reasonable price and the service was good!More

Stopped for lunch on a rainy Saturday and there were only two other diners but whilst we were there another table of 8 came in. Everyone received the same attentive and friendly service and the staff were so welcoming. The food was absolutely amazing -...I had the cheese tortellini and the husband had spaghetti with meat sauce and we cleaned our plates and ate all the bread too as that was lovely and fresh. Price was not cheap but what you would expect for a decent dining experience in an upmarket area of San Antonio.More

The matriarch of our family passed away at the age of 96. All of her children and many of her nieces and nephews and spouses came to San Antonio for the funeral. We had a lovely dinner the night before in the upstairs Loft at...Capparelli's on Main. The service was great, the food and drinks were great, and we all had a very good time. It couldn't have gone more perfectly. This is a wonderful place with reasonable prices and a great atmosphere. My husband and I have been there several times and will continue to go back for special occasions, sometimes just a dinner out.More

A restaurant gets overall ratings for ambience, service and food. Of all these the quality of food is the most important for me. I had eggplant parmigiana sandwich and later that evening I had stomach flu. From the taste, I think the food is not...made fresh here. It is stale food. The pasta sauce is not made fresh. The kids meal came with garlic bread which was burnt. Overall, it is not a worthy place to eat italian food. However, service is good and waitress are super friendly and do their best. Most of the good reviews are mainly of nice people are around. Food is hopeless and stale. Those who are sensitive to stale food will end up with stomach flu..More

Excellent, I have the veal parmesan. There were 6 of us and each of us finished their meal. If I have any criticism it would be the use of heresy chocolate syrup being used on a Great Cannoli.
