wow!!!!! i'm not much in to writing reviews, but the food and service at this restaurant is great. from the time you first walk-in they make you feel at home. when i got back from iraq i made sure one of my first stops was the capri italian restaurant's. the capri italian restaurant's team members keep up the great food and work.thank you
Not Impressed... – I went to the Capri for dinner, staff is great but food absolutely Gross, Chicken is under cook and the bottom of my pizza was burn, I don't think the show didn't them wonders, I will never go there again or suggest anyone to eat there...
Never Again – Me and my husband saw the Capri on Hells Kitchen and figured let go try it out, the food was okay vary mediocre not that great, this is definitely not authentic italian food, and the owners the TWINS what a joke all they did when we where there is put down there employees, it was as if they think there employees are trying to still there lighting or something, there since of humor is mediocre just like your food, your not funny...everyone pick the pizza pie, much better actually the best in Eagle Rock....
Pizza, pizza! – I just tried this place. I love the food and the service is better. The pizza is my favorite. The twins that own the place are a riot!
Great Service – So the family and I wanted Italian one night and a friend of ours had recommended (highly) this place for us. We were pretty excited because I knew that my friend had a very similar taste in food to me and the rest of my family. We were seated quickly and in a cozy little table. We had a great time with some great food. The pizza was delicious and these guys really know how to put the toppings on there. We had a great time and looking forward to returning sometime in the future.
just terrific naighborhood haunt for Italian – The Capri is not the best or worst Italian Restaurant. It is however, the most kitch. I love this place. The twins rock, and the food is pasta house neghborhood good. Not great at anything, but really decent at most. I like to with a good magazine, by myself in the corner. See you there.
Great local place – I've been going to the Capri for about the past 20 years, through several owners, and one of the great things about this place is that it has never changed. The food is good, the service friendly. My favorite is the veal. I now live in Budapest but whenever I'm back in LA, I make the Capri one of my stops.
Great Service, Cozy Family Atmosphere – My girlfriend and I went to The Capri on a Sunday night. What a fabulous place. It's not fine dining, but it's very good quality at reasonable prices. That's hard to find in LA. I had the Chicken Parm and she the Lasagna. Both were great. We especially appreciated the $5 corkage fee as we had our own bottle. Our waitress was exceptional and very personable. I don't think I can say anything that I would have changed. Simple, Good Food, Fair Prices, Friendly Service. We will definitely be back in the future.
cute family restaurant – I mean the family who qwns the Capri is cute. Its always fun to go there. Its really a family business and the twin boys (grown men) are adorable. It is a fact we were missing the eggplant in the eggplant parmegiano but who cares, thats how my mom would have made it too.
WHY BOTHER??? THEY DON'T!!!!! – We were looking for a no fuss, good food, Italian place close by. The sign inside says, Please wait to be seated...and we waited, waited, waited, no one greeted and finally after 5-10 min. the grumpy white haired woman said, we'll be with you in a few minutes. Still waiting, we almost walked out. FINALLY being seated we ordered. The salad (or dressing with a side of salad) came before the drinks. The garlic bread was no good. I ordered the Olive Oil & Garlic (a very simple classic dish) and my friend ordered the Italian Sausage and Peppers. I knew I was in trouble when the waiter wasn't sure what I was ordering, yet it was on the menu...I think the cook didn't know either because when it arrived, it was swimming in slosh, the garlic was raw and not sauteed and it tasted like it had clam juice in it. I kept trying to eat it and it was just horrible. My friend tried it and he said that's just not good- it's a soupy mess. I tried his dish and it was much better - not great, but good and far better than my dish.
The service was non-existent. Not once were our glasses refilled, nor did anyone check on us after we were served, nor when it was time to clear the plates, so finally after about 10-15 minutes (after we were finished), I flagged down the waiter to removed the dishes. Leaving a full plate of food didn't cause him to ask if everything is alright but instead he asked if I wanted a box to go and I said OH NO. Still he was clueless....
I was really hoping to find a great little neighborhood Italian place but instead, this place was a disaster. From the minute we walked in, it was as if no one cared and it showed. Lousy food, lousy service, decent prices, but the latter is a mute point since it was so bad. Oh, and the "B" grade in the window didn't help matters either. Don't waste your time or money. As my friend said, this wasn't worth getting dressed for....Why bother? They don't.
