The food was amazing; fresh and home-made. The restaurant was the whole package and definitely exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend it.

Having been to the Island of CAPRI... it was fun to meet for dinner and enjoy the Italian Cuisine!! The service was excellent and the Eggplant Appetizers with a half order of the Ravoli was perfect -- we so enjoyed the Veal Lemone -- noting the Fresh vegetables done perfectly ( not overcooked or soggy)! We finished the dinner with the Lemoncello Cake -- EXCELLENT. We are definitely going to return soon.

We are so very pleased that McLean is enjoying this Italian restaurant with a lively crowd on a Sunday night.

We have been to this restaurant several times and always enjoyed it. This time I ordered the daily special Veal Lasagna and half way through the meal I saw a large piece of plastic (like a wrapper of sort) sticking out of my food. My appetite (and that of my wife who also was 1/2 way through her meal) was completely ruined. They took the food away. They comped my lasagna and they gave us a free dessert but we still had to pay for everything else, including my wife’s half-eaten entree. It may be a long time before we go back. It was a terrible experience.

Two in our party ordered Dover Sole and said it was the best they'd EVER had (and these two have traveled and had it all over the world)! My ossobucco over risotto was awesome--and the lemon tartufo dessert is not to be missed! Dimitri, our server, is always wonderful. Can't go wrong.

When we arrived, we said we had reservations. However, the staff never asked for our names. In my reservation I'd noted it was my husband's birthday but unfortunately the celebration was never acknowledged.
The food was not bad: shrimp and scallops for me served with a very good assortment of vegetables, sea scallops over linguine for my husband. The portions were generous but both dishes were too oily for our tastes.
My principal complaint is with the service. Overall it was perfunctory. The waiter seemed robotic and appeared to want to rush us through the meal. Our impression was that it was the type of service you'd get at a casual rather than a "fine-dining," white-tablecloth restaurant.
Future patrons may also want to be aware that the "formal" dress code listed on Capri's website is a joke. People at tables all around us were dressed in very casual clothes, including hoodies and sweatshirts.
We won't return.

We dined here on New Years Eve and the reason I only gave 3 stars for food was because of the special menu. Most all entrees had fish, I don’t care for veal and there was only one chicken option.

The restaurant staff were polite. The food was OK but bland in taste. The dacor was fine. It would not take much to make the food a lot better. There are to many other Italian restaurants in the area to go back to bland food.

We had our annual Christmas Eve dinner at Capri, and the experience did not disappoint. They were full of course, but the vibe was festive and the service and food were wonderful. Looking forward to a repeat NEXT Christmas Eve, and perhaps a visit or two sooner! Thanks!

The waiter who served us rushed us throughout the meal. From when he served the sparkling water, to the wine, the getting the plates off the table. Most irritating however, my wife was finishing desert and he gave us the check. I don't give my credit card until the meal is complete. The waiter came back several time and picked up the little book with the check in it. I told him we were not finished and I hadn't put my card in the book. He came back again a minute later and again took it. I said we are not finished, why are coming back every few minutes. He said he"was efficient" I gave him the card and we left immediately after signing without me even finishing my glass of wine.

Really enjoyed the burrata, a "special" appetizer that night, as the cheese was on top of arugula with a scattering of cut cherry tomatoes and dressed with balsamic vinegar. The rack of lamb crusted with walnuts and a honey sauce (another special) was good, although the sauce was a little cloying by the end, but the pieces of lamb were very large and tender. My husband enjoyed his veal chop that was accompanied by a mushroom sauce. I was surprised that the service was good, since it was a crowded Saturday night.

We always have a great dining experience at Capri Restaurant. The food is amazing and wait staff is very friendly. Our practice is to arrive early to avoid the noise level when the restaurant is full.

We were looking for a good Italian restaurant as we were passing through McLean. It was lunch time. The food was ok, nothing special. The service was good. Very clean. The ambiance was a little depressing as the clientele was 100% senior citizens. We felt we had checked in a retirement home.

Our only quibble is the noise level from other tables. We wish they’d put some sound deafening materials on the ceiling.
