If you’re in Burr Ridge, definitely check it out. Very popular spot. One absolute highlight was the service. It was a very crowded night, but the meal flowed perfectly. We will be back.

This was our second visit to the restaurant and it was even better than the first (if that’s possible). Our server Vicki was incredible - knew the menu inside out and made wonderful recommendations. The Calamari Capri is a must as is the Linguine Mayor Grasso. As for specials, the salmon was outstanding! Full house but Vicki was attentive without being overwhelming. Looking forward to our next visit!

Experience was wonderful, waitress delightful, but it is way too loud. You can hardly hold a conversation once it gets busy in there. If this could be fixed, it would be perfect."_

I am pretty picky when it comes to Italian food but Capri never disappoints. The calamari appetizer was superb. I had the veal/eggplant dish - yum. So good. Fresh bread, great service, nice Chianti. I was a happy girl. I was there to celebrate my 28th Anniversary with my husband and another couple that was also celebrating an anniversary. Great dining experience once again!

Two people in our group were served the wrong entree
When they alerted the server nothing was done to correct
The special rigatoni was on the cool side and tasted fair
So disappointed especially with this large group
We have been here a few times this was not to the normal standards

The atmosphere was beautiful with fairy lights and greenery. The food was excellent and the service was superb. The ONLY drawback was that there was a huge funeral dinner in the room we were in and our "romantic" dinner was interrupted by loud speeches about a grandma who didn't like anyone and lots of laughter. I wish they were in their own room. I had planned this to be a special date with my husband and had even surprised him with the location.

We sat on the outside patio and had very poor service. Waiter disappeared for 30 minutes. Couldn’t get silverware when food came - it was SLOW. and it wasn’t busy that night

Our waitress was wonderful. I’m sorry I didn’t get her name. Very helpful. She had dark hair with a slight accent. She made our anniversary very special and went out of her way to help my husband choose a dish since he’s had a heart attack and watches what he eats. Both our meals were excellent and she surprised us with a dessert at the end. Can’t wait to go back.

Capri is one of my top favorite restaurants period across many cities. It has a great “rat-pack” and old-school vibe from the moment you enter. It has a very nice bar, if a bit small, with great bartenders. I bring people I am working and traveling with here for a nice dinner. They are always blown away and fall in love with Capri as much as me. This night I had two guests with me. One need gluten-free and our waiter Elton was able to go through several offerings that either are gluten-free or can be made to be. My favorite starter is the sausage, potato and pepper dish. It is so tasty that I should try this once for my dinner. I ended up going more traditional than usual and chose the shrimp and scallop fettuccine with added mushrooms and peas. It was wonderful. My gluten-free guest went with a starter plate of octopus that she raved about. My other guest had one of the special dishes offered that evening which was a grilled filet with mashed potatoes and salad. It looked wonderful and he said it was cooked just like he wanted. We finished with an espressos and coffees and were able to stay for a while as we were on the end of the dinner rush and were not keeping a table from anyone else. It was a great evening with pleasant conversation with other guests at tables close by as we were all simply enjoying the evening. Please try this restaurant and you will be pleased you did. Wonderful for business, family, date night and romantic evenings out.

What a tremendous evening!! We were a group of friends who haven't gathered in almost 30 years, something I mentioned in the Open Table reservation. Much to our surprise, we were given a private room!!! Our server was wonderful and so much fun! The food was amazing!! Thanks, Capri, for a wonderful memorable evening for a group of friends!!

We were in side room. VERY noisey but found that the busboys were overly noisy. When they changed the tables mourned us they were dropping the chairs so hard you would jump from the noise. Also noticed that they threw the dirty dishes into the tub, all night long. I don't think that is necessary when trying to have a nice dinner and could not hear the others at a table of 5.

I love everything about your restaurant except the NOISE!
You absolutely would have me dining more often if you made the environment conversation friendly. It’s IMPOSSIBLE to hear what my guests are saying ☹️

The good - our waiter, Elton, was friendly, attentive, and seemed to know a number of the regulars. Great smile! A reason to come back.
The ambiance- The restaurant was empty when we arrived for our 5:00 dinner. It got quickly crowded ( it was concert night in Burr Ridge). Noise level increased. We could hardly see the menu items as it was so dark at our table. Used our phone flashlight to read the menu.
The food was ok. Nothing special. Bread was hard. Entrees were nice and hot, but nothing to rave about. We feel the restaurant in Palos is much better. Food always good there.

The hostess came to our table after 2 hours at dinner to try and move us to the bar. Not appropriate to say to customers. We felt rushed and pushed out.

We had a late reso, 9 PM. WE got there at 8:15 and they sat us within 5 minutes.
The place was packed for the late hour. Everyone we came it to contact with were fantastic. From the host to the busboys everyone was super pleasant and helpful.
Wife and I each had a special. Wife wanted halibut and I took the servers recommendation on Brocole.
Both were fantastic.
We had Bananas foster and a cappuccino for dessert , excellent!
This place has a neighborhood Italian restaurant feel,,, and it will be a regular spot for us.
