“Pretty Good Old World Italian Cooking”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Not withstanding a terrible table in the corner entering the kitchen, don't miss the opportunity to dine at this restaurant. Located conveniently to many of the hotels in the area, most of which provide shuttle service to/from the restaurant, an opportunity that you should not miss. A broad menu with excellent results from the kitchen, excellent wait staff, and a very good mixologist at the bar. It will be difficult due to large portion size of the entrees, but save room for dessert - an excellent selection, including ice cream and gelato - very good spumoni!

“Capri, Burr Ridge, IL”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Hands down, my favorite restaurant in South Suburban Chicago. The service is top of the line, food quality and quantity are beyond fabulous. Authentic italian, great flavors and ingredients. Festive and beautiful environment, great for family, friends, intimate dinners but great celebration atmosphere as well. Sparkly and entertaining decor. Great outdoor seating for summer but also is open all year round and heated to expand their dining room. Love it here!

“excellent and fun”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Capri Ristorante not only has great food, but the wait staff is a blast. We went around the holiday's and even though we didn't have reservations (6 of us) they graciously found a table for us with only a very minimal wait. The tortellini melts in your mouth and the flaming banana dessert made right at the table was wonderful, too!

“Superior Italian”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

This is a popular and charming Italian eatery that you will want to come back to again and again. The service was excellent, the food was even better. The menu is classic Italian and every dish was prepared to perfection. My pick is the Pollo Genevese.

“Bustling Spot; they rush you out”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

The enclosure of the patio doubles the size of this restaurant; the food is good; they push the drinks and refill the wine quickly; orders are delivered incredibly quickly and one feels rushed to finish and leave - or so it seemed during this holiday time - December. The salads appear to be "prepackaged" and ordinary; the lemon veal was VERY good but the pasta side was VERY ordinary. The decorations make it look festive but it is noisy.
