We visited for the first time since moving away from the area and Capri is still the same place we loved. The pasta and vodka sauce is delicious as is the tomato sauce. I miss the food here. Excellent fresh fish as well. Excellent cocktails at the bar and the service is outstanding. Ask for Otto to serve you.

Great time at Capri what a way to bring in the new year. Made reservations and waited only 10 minutes to be seated. Had Frankie as a server and he was awesome. Very authentic food with great portions. Would definitely come back thank you for having us

The food was great, but we never got past the appetizers, because the bread, cheese dip, and balsamic mix prior to the meal filled us up! Have to go back to try the risotto. The calamari in the mixed grill was overdone and chewy. Good flavor, though. Will definitely return.

This was our first time at this location. It’s a Very small restaurant- we were seated in the back room behind the bar- which was hard to get to.
Soup was delicious, entree was good.
Service was excellent.

My wife and I have been eating here for years, and it seems to keep getting better every time we eat here. The food is terrific and the waiters are friendly, most of them have been there forever. Whatever I order, it is always delicious Italian food. I bring friends here often and no one has been disappointed. The have a new menu, but the quality of the food just keeps getting better. I wish I could eat here more often.

We had an early dinner prior to seeing Gladys Knight in St. Charles. The food and service was excellent. We did not care for the music and asked our host if it could changed. He had it changed within minutes.

Capri is one of our go-to places for good food in a comfortable, friendly atmosphere. Last time there we one of us had the pork chop special (delicious), which included the crispy parmesan potatoes (yay!), and the other had Mama's lasagna (can't go wrong). We always come away with enough for a second meal of leftovers! The staff is professional and very friendly. Many of them seem to be family, and they make you feel like you are too! We love it!

We arrived for a pre-concert meal to a quiet scene, with several parties enjoying their early dinners. Once seated, warm bread with two wonderful spreads appeared. While one of our first choices was not available (the lasagna hadn't yet been made by a late-arriving cook, our server Frankie suggested a choice from the "choose a pasta/sauce/meat" section of the menu.

Portions were generous and delicious! Its clear that each dish is made from scratch to order. Capri is an unexpected gem, with food that rivals Randolph Street (outside our front door). We will surely be making it a destination. Thank you!

We are current and retired Police Officers from the City of Northlake in which we had our 1st taste of
Capri's. The Food is Great and who can say anything bad about Otto our waiter. We get together
at least 3 to 4 times a year and go out with our wives and girlfriends and catch up on current times and
talk about our times on the job. The best was that we could hear each talking and not have to keep saying "can you repeat that". There was 9 of us and all Thanked me for picking Capri's. We will be back!!!

It was ok. We were seated about around 8:25 for our 8:15 reservation, though we did make the reservation online around 7:50. I was mostly frustrated because while we waited in the bar, the hostess kept telling us it would be ready in a few minutes rather than waiting until it would actually be only a few minutes or waiting for the table to be ready.

The fire alarm went off soon after we were seated and we had to wait for the fire department to come to turn it off. This isn't really the restaurant's fault, though setting off the alarm in the first place was. Maybe because of the alarm, or maybe because the waiter didn't write down the drink order, I ended up with a Moretti instead of a Moretti la Rossa. We were almost completely done with our appetizer by the time the waiter came back to take the order for our entree. Maybe I should just be more relaxed about the pace of dinner, but it felt unnecessary to wait that long. When the food came out it also didn't seem fresh off the grill/pan whatever, some sauces seemed to have set a little.

None of these issues by themselves would have been bad but overall they added up to a somewhat mediocre experience. There are plenty of other Italian restaurants for me to try before I come back here.

This was our first time to eat at Capri‘s and it was worth the drive all the way from the City. Ado our waiter was very very exceptional. The Chilean sea bass was very good I love the little pepper and cheese with with the vinegar with thr orange dipping sauce with the bread. My husband Veal dish was excellent. Will go back again.
