Super crowded. Tables were squeezed in just about every corner. Server however was still friendly and attentive. I’ve been here before so food was as good as expected. I will think twice before eating here again in a Friday tho. Also parking was full so had to park a bit away and walk to and from restaurant. Otherwise I’m sure I’ll be back at some point.

Way, way too loud for conversation at lunch. Pizzette Margharite was good, but the basil was virtually non-existent. One other pasta dish was ridiculously small. Pizzette Fungi was fine. The four of us sat in a booth, still super noisy. Waitress service was excellent, but kitchen staff was so backed up that we waited more than 30 minutes for our lunch.

This is a favorite place for lunch. Consistently good food and good service. The small market by the hostess station has lots of fun items and not just food. I would definitely recommend Capers & Lemons.

I always enjoy dining at Capers and Lemons. The menu is great and the food even better. They always have specials to offer. The restaurant itself is very comfortable with outside seating when weather permits which is a great option. It seems to be a go-to place when meeting friends.

Went for our 1st wedding anniversary. We had our rehearsal dinner here. It was busy but we had reservations so sat right away. Lasagna and chicken Picatta was amazing. Had the Chocolate chip cookie with ice cream and was also really good. Such a great night and celebration for my wife and I.

Was our first time at this spot. Very nice. The pappardelle in particular was excellent. Nice decor, relatively new space, suburban location, easy parking. We will almost certainly go back!

First we were kept waiting way past our reservation time even though there were tables available. The food was over an hour arriving. The puttanesca was the poorest I've ever had anywhere. Mostly a bowl of pasta with a little sauce.

We had a reservation and were seated against a wall with no elbow room at all. We were told there was no other seating m. As I went to inquire about another seat. A couple was seated immediately in a nice booth as well as the table next to us was vacant before I pressed the issue. Cold bread. Colder experience.
