Capri Ristorante - Burr Ridge
Great authentic Italian food at a good price. Lovely space inside and out. Service with a smile!
Noisy but great as always!
This is my daughter’s boyfriend’s favorite restaurant so we always take them here when they are visiting. Being Italian, I am very critical of so called Italian restaurants. Never this one. It really is true Italian food.
We began with the stuffed Melrose pepper appetizer. It was the special, and the ricotta, meat, and pine nut filling did not at all detract from the delicious flavor of the vegetable. In addition, the sausage and peppers are also a delicious way to start the meal while dipping cocktails.
I had the 8 finger cavatelli with a side of meatballs. The latter of which are if super quality. No toughness. Just a smooth, well seasoned dish. I did take half of each home.
Our daughter had a veal dish which was perfect since she had just come from a dental appointment. Tender meat and roasted potatoes fit the bill. Her friend had a pasta dish which he always orders and polished the whole thing off. My husband had the steak special of the evening. Even he couldn’t finish the portion and enjoyed it for lunch the next day.
Desserts were cannoli, tiramisu, and bananas foster. They are the reason to take half your entree home.
On this visit I had broiled salmon with a tomato/radicchio salad. It was very good. The salmon was good quality and expertly prepared. Wait staff was attentive and courteous. The main dining room is quite dark which is a negative for me. We were seated in a lovely enclosed terrace type room with good lighting. The pathways to and from his room, particularly to the rest rooms, were full of activity. I would inquire before bringing a wheelchair. Having visited this restaurant several times for lunch, I would highly recommend it for excellent service and quality food.
We had a very nice time, our waiter was a little slow greeting us and getting our drinks and coming back to order.
Great food, great value and great staff! We went for lunch with the kids for a back to school last hurrah. There is no kids menu, but the entrees at lunch were all around ten dollars and my kids finished everything on their plates!
Wonderful dinner to celebrate a 90th Birthday. Food and service were both excellent!
Good food and good service. Ate outside. Love the ambiance at Capri!
The service and food is EXCEPTIONAL. Some of the best Italian food I’ve eaten in a long time.
Great Italian food Gigi never disappoints!
I would strongly suggest Capri as a marvelous local restaurant featuring .....Fantastic food, service and ambiance.
Great! One of our favorite Italian restaurants!
Great food. Good prices. Could have had a better server but overall great! I’ll be back again.
We love the food at Capri!! We sat out in the side enclosed area and all the lights out there make a wonderful ambiance. The noise level is very high. We had a fairly large party and it was a bit difficult to carry on a conversation. Does seem as though the portions have been cut back however, food and service were wonderful.
Absolutely fabulous Italian cuisine!
Awesome, as always!
Our server was on top of her game ..new the menu n wine
As usual we enjoyed ourselves for dinner and the phone and staff are always great.
The mussels in the white sauce followed by the ravioli special was an excellent option. Everything at Capri is good, you cannot go wrong. We did end up with a table near the kitchen and it was very loud but we enjoyed the service and the food.
I LOVE Capri by Gigi! It’s a favorite and dine here here many many times. The food and service is always great. Only issue is that the Hostess started rushing clearing our table before we were finished with desert and coffee...as we were paying our bill. Not nice!
Why hadn’t we dined here before? Great service, really good food! Will address any changes you may want to make to a dish. You will not be disappointed dining here.
As always, our business dinner experience was excellent! My guest (from Texas) said Capri is his favorite restaurant in Chicago. I would agree!
We have learned not to book a 7:00 reservation. It was packed on a Wednesday night which is great for the restaurant, but not if you don’t want to wait around in a crowded bar area. The homemade manicotti was good. Good wine list, but the waiting around when we were out for our anniversary was a bummer. We will go back but on the earlier side. Our server Stephanie was awesome!
I will start by saying my Chilean Sea Bass was very good...the risotto was passable. It was a special and when I got the bill I understood why there were no prices on the card they put on the table. The service was mediocre at best. It took at least 15 minutes to get 2 glasses of wine. I ordered soup, they brought a salad, they brought someone else's meal to our table, and we were never asked if we wanted a second glass of wine or a refill on coffee. The restaurant is very dark, the tables are so close together you are bumping the people at the next table and it is so loud that you have trouble having a conversation....and that was on a Wednesday night. I doubt i will return.
Always good food and service. Extensive menu offers great variety...something for everyone. Noise level can be a bit much, especially when dining as part of a larger group.
Service was outstanding! Food was outstanding.i would recommend Capri .
Always great food and personal touch
Phil has done a great job
A great meal with friends with the only issue being the noise level. We were surprised by the overall noise level, particularly on a Monday night. Live music in the expanded bar area was a contributor. Regardless, the food was excellent (veal Francesca was terrific as was the grilled calamari). Service was great...very attentive.
Food was excellent as well as the service!
The best food I ever ate in my life. I had the spicy chicken parmigiana #18 it was heaven in my mouth. I took my girlfriend who is an outstanding cook. She had the lasagna. She makes a lasagna that’s to die for and she compared theirs to hers .
We loved everything about our experience here. We will most definitely go back and we highly recommend it!!!
As usual we had a lovely dinner in beautiful surroundings. Our server Gloria was excellent and was very knowledgeable about the menu. They could turn on a couple more lights inside but we sat on the patio on a beosummer night. Love this place.
I had been asked on the Open Table app if it was for a special occasion. I said yes for our Anniversary. At other restaurants they usually acknowledge it in some way. At Capri they did not.
It was very noisy and crowded. I had reserved an outdoor table but it was too sunny so we ate inside.
The food and service were very good. But I will probably refrain from going on a weekend again.
We had Vicky as our server which made our dining experience very enjoyable! The food was great as always!
Such a cute restaurant with a large menu. One person sent his pasta back because it was lukewarm. My pasta was lukewarm but I did not send it back. Another in our group expected his Braciola to have some stuffing in it but he loved the gravy. Come early as parking gets complicated.
Amazing food, service, scenery! This is one of our favorite spots in the burbs
Melrose peppers were outstanding!
The patio needs to lose some of the plastic flowers and ferns. What used to be charming is now overpowering. The good news is that the food is still great!
Wonderful Italian restaurant. Calamari was a delicious appetizer. Generous pours of wine. Veal marsala was delicious. We ate outside and it was lovely on the patio. We loved our waitress Charlene, she is a big SOX fan and we traded great stories.
Norma is an excellent experienced waitress. Fabulous, doesn’t rush. The busboy attendant was immediate with water, removal of plates. Like a machine. They give you an actual log of bread and don’t chince out like some places. The menu is overwhelming in quantity, but cool in all the choices. Ambiance is fantastic- dark wood, lights everywhere.
Now, most importantly, the food and wine. Excellence. No kidding. It is rare to get the all around great value, service, and food situation, but I had salad and chicken parmigiana. My wife had lobster ravioli. We were so thrilled with the whole night and will come again for sure from Naperville.
Wonderful food. A bit loud but it was fine.
