Capri Ristorante Italiano - McLean
Great food. Lots of variety. Every dish was really good!
Another memorable lunch at Capri. Excellent food, good service, and a nice environment. The espresso gelato was to die for …. also the crab gazpacho. Oh, and the moules in red sauce. Did I mention the smoked salmon? Yep ~ everything we had hoped for and expected!
i have dined there many times and the food is very good, an excellent chef and staff . our evenings there are always enjoyed with every guest we bring there.
Great food, service and ambience in a charming neighborhood.
Always enjoy Capri - a hidden gem in a strip mall. Wonderful food, great wine. Best of all, it's quiet and unhurried for friends who want to sit and chat and catch up.
We both enjoyed broiled asparagus as a starter, and my wife had grilled rockfish with a nice medley of vegetables. I had an excellent shrimp and crabmeat ravioli which should have a vegetable side but did not. The daily specials for wine were excellent. Overall the dining experience was very good and efficiently managed.
Our favorite place to have dinner as a family. We lived in Rome for three years, and this restaurant brings back happy memories.
Food is very good.
Service is terrible. Every step Of the way we were trying to flag down a waiter for at least five minutes.
A first visit to this restaurant. First of all, it is on the second floor of a building and the escalator was not in service when we arrived (fine for us, but not for folks who need assistance). Our server was quite knowledgeable and able to answer questions. Two of us had fish that came with some under-cooked veggies, and the other two had pasta dishes. While the bread was good, the breadsticks were dry and tasted like dust. We had sorbets for dessert. The tables are quite close together, so as the attendance increased, so did the decibel level. Also, the people refilling water/tea glasses need to be instructed not to reach directly in front of the diner to refill the glass. We had a food and water collision...
Good Food and excellent service! A great place for quiet conversation.
Great place for nice meal, met another couple. Magnificent fresh fish, varied Italian dishes, good wine list.
Always a wonderful experience! Love this restaurant so much!
This is a great restaurant. The pasta dishes are great, the service is great, everything is really good. The atmosphere is comfortable - you can go here for a nice dinner out with friends, or you can bring your kids here after a ball game or practice (which we have done many times - and I would add "well behaved" kids meaning it is a small dining room so I've seen kids/teens here in shorts etc. but have never witnessed a screaming toddler or kids running around dining room or anything like that... it is a subdued scene...) - my kids love this place too - lots of great options for everyone. The salads are also really great. I can't say enough kind things about the staff and the place. Great local McLean restaurant!
While the food at Capri was good, the service on this visit left a lot to be desired .
It went from being rushed at first to then not finding our server- very uneven.
Bottom line, go for the food, not the service
Everything was perfect until the check arrived. We were a group of 8; three ordered the same fish dish. All 3 were charged a different price for the same fish dish. Each of the three were charged at least $20 more than the price stated on the menu. It was a very sour end to what was a beautiful evening. We have gone to this local restaurant numerous times with friends, but we now know we must be extremely careful about checking the bill.
This is the second time I had dinner at this restaurant and I will go back again. In both occasions food was very tasty and service was great. Excellent seafood dishes! I highly recommend it.
Food was delicious. However, service was slow and ruined the otherwise nice meal.
Capri never disappoints. The food and service were wonderful
Service was slow. It was a Monday night and the food was not as good as usual.
This is one of my favorite restaurants, but, they had an off night tonight.
Salad had too much dressing, veal was only okay, pasta was excellent as always.
We waited for drinks, waited to have our order taken, waited for food and waited for the check.
And, it was not a packed house!
When I want Italian food, this is the restaurant I go to, and take friends. I've gone for years and I love it. I was glad I'd made a reservation it was pretty packed on Friday night.
Love Capri. Food is ALWAYS great. The staff makes you feel at home and glad that you came.
It’s a nice place to meet up with friends for a quiet dinner
Wanted to be impressed. We were not. Food reheated. Sauce below average. Main course prices were a trifle steep but within range of the food was drop dead amazing. It was not.
Food was previously cooked and reheated to be served.
Below average food but good service - but overall not worth half the check that we paid. By all means try it yourself and leave a review to counter mine, or agree with it.
In sum, I will avoid as one of the local McLean restaurants. They could do so much better. I hope they do.
We celebrated our twins birthday at Capri and had a wonderful time. The food was delicious. It was a great choice for my girls' big day!
Got a last minute reservation on Mother’s Day and it was quite a nice surprise. This was our first time because my son just moved to McLean. The food was delicious and we will be back again....for sure
The food was bland, but what was worse was the service. The waiter was not attentive and was in a rush to get us out. Plates were slammed down, then plates were picked up before we were finished. The experience was embarrassing and uncomfortable. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
It was a busy Saturday night but, it really is no excuse - they should be prepared and quality of service should never be an issue. They got my drink order wrong....after waiting a lengthy period of time from ordering. No one came to check on us after our meal was served. No offer for a 2nd drink. The service was just not good. Food was. Unfortunately, both would be required for me to return or recommend to a friend and I rated the value as fair due to the service. We may have received $150 of food but, we did not receive that amount in service. Disappointing.
Good food, excellent service and fairly quiet corner table, as requested. We’ll go back!
We had a mini family get together. Service was outstanding. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Wonderful evening had by all,
Been joining friends here for many years- great food, outstanding and friendly service, highly recommend for any occasion.
As always, fine service, great food, standards consistently high. We return often. Our favorite in McLean.
Capri has become our favorite Italian in the Tysons area
I go to Capri regularly with my friends and my family for over 20 + years. The cooking is authentic and very good. The staffs are always very friendly.
It is a classic to have either a business meal or family getting together.
We did not know what to expect, but had always wanted to try the restaurant as long-time McLean residents. My wife and I enjoyed our experience and the food. From the appetizers to desert, we were not disappointed and have been recommending it to others.
Very enjoyable meal. Good food,good service. Very helpful staff.
Family dinner. Really g
I normalky enjoy my lunch at this restaurant, but i always experience their rush to get rid of you. We booked a table at 1pm. By 2:10 the noisy vacuum cleaner was on. I find it unacceptable for them to take reservations at 1pm, and expect you out of there in an hour.
The one thing i really love about this restaurant is the natural light it gets. It is a happy place to lunch, but ....
I personally had fettuccine Alfredo with chicken. It tasted fine, but I was disappointed by what appeared to be squares of processed chicken instead of fresh carved chicken that I normally experience in other fine Italian restaurants.
