Description: Originally opened in 1952 it's home to magnificent Italian Cuisine and oceanfront panoramic Virginia Beach views. The Isle of Capri restaurant is almost as famous for its history as it is for mouthwatering Italian cuisine. Well-schooled in his family's delicious Italian cooking, Pasquale Arcese continues the family tradition as Executive Chef.

“Great Italian Food”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

We stayed at the Holiday Inn & ate at Isle of Capri which is part of the hotel. We have eaten here many times over the years of visiting VA Beach. A fine dining experience with an ocean view. Delicious food & excellent service!! Reservations suggested due to them being very busy most nights. We had a long wait one time due to a large dinner party going on in the banquet room -- the manager gave us free desserts for our delay!

“Fine dining retreat”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Ate here with my husband on a night of escape from the large group with whom we were traveling. It was on the top floor of our hotel with its own dedicated elevator. Dress code and price points keep the masses at bay. Very peaceful with an expansive view of the Atlantic Ocean. The service was excellent. The food even better. Highly recommend

“A nice surprise in a Holiday Inn”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We dined Saturday past, June 22, 2013. As has been previously set out, the view from the 6th floor is fabulous. Parking, an issue at times in Virginia Beach, is valet and free with a dedicated elevator for the restaurant. The food was well prepared. The caesar salad was very good. We dined on the Veal Rollatini, a couple of pasta dishes with fish and red sauce, The clams casino was just ok, perhaps a little deconstructed. Service was good, but the pacing was a little slow given it was a Saturday night. Our table was ready at 730pm and all in all it was a very good experience. This would be a lovely place for a special meal with aunts, uncles, grandmas, grandpas et al. Total bill for four with cocktails and wine by the glass was around $200 before tip...
