“Top 5 in Central Arkansas region”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2012

Ristorante Capeo is a charming little restaurant in downtown NLR. Since it is fairly small (I'm join to guess they can seat about 50-75 people at a time, reservations are definitely recommended on weekends and special occasions.

I think one of the best things about Capeo is that you can have a fabulous dinner regardless of your price range. If you just want pasta, that's perfectly fine, and most pasta's are under $15. We usually go all out on special occasions, and get a couple of appetizers, split a pasta entree between my husband and myself, then get an entree (this is ONLY for special occasions and we're absolutely STUFFED afterwards). We usually skip dessert because we're about in a food coma by that point, and I think if there's one place Capeo is lacking, it's desserts. I haven't been impressed the few times I have had dessert.

Service is friendly, but not intrusive. Wine selection is excellent. Most authentic Italian in LR/NLR area!

“Good place for a night out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2011

We always get good food at our neighborhood Italian restaurant. Good wine list. If you're feeling adventurous some night, get the full course meal. You get everything from appetizer through dessert. It's a lot of food, but it's fun to just let the chef pick for you!

“Homey ambience; amazing food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

Our innkeepers at our B&B assured us we would love this Italian Bistro, and we weren't disappointed. Advice to the wise: make a reservation! We were seated near the kitchen/bar, and our server had time to chat with us occasionally. My husband's pork chop was probably the best I've ever tasted and my chicken was also wonderful. Our wine choices, encouraged by our server, were also excellent. Ambience, service, food, and wine all exceeded our expectations. Coming from California, we didn't really expect to find one of the best restaurants we've ever visited, in Little Rock, so we were pleasantly surprised.
