My sister, my daughter and I all enjoyed a wonderful meal tonight at Capri. Best Italian food I’ve ever had! My sister who has actually been to Capri Italy said it’s the best she’s had since her visit.... We were treated wonderfully, by my guess is the owner. He was wonderful with my daughter who is 11 months. Delicious Italian food, great wine, antipasto and house chocolate mousse! Definitely a new favorite!!! See More

Not a big fan of "true" Italian food however, the Spaghetti & Meatballs were phenomenal! Service was on part as well. I just hate when waiters or waitresses interrupt conversation to ask to get a pl...ate put of the way. I feel like I am being pushed out of my dining experience before I am ready. See More

Thank you Capri for catering my daughter's 16th birthday celebration. The food was amazing! The pasta was so fresh and delicious. Everyone loved it! Dino was wonderful to work with. I highly recommend Capri!

Dino is the quintessential family restaurantier. He greats each customer like an old friend, and then serves dinners that would not be out of place in New York or, for that matter, Rome. The atmospher...e is friendly yet elegant, and the noise level refreshingly comfortable. Perhaps my favorite restaurant in Raleigh, and has been for many years. See More

What a great little restaurant this place is. The owner is a true gentleman and friendly greats you. The food is to die for. Real Italian food as if back in NY

My partner and I ate at Capri's earlier this evening. The croutons on the caesar salad were stale, but other than that the food was adequate. The service however left me bewildered.

My partner happe...ns to be white, I'm Indian. The waiter refused to acknowledge my existence. He messed up my drink order, didn't correct it until after I paid for the meal, that too only after I insisted. While taking our order, he asked my partner if he wanted an appetizer, and skipped me. He came by when we were eating and cracked pepper into my partner's plate, still did not acknowledge my existence. He brought out some parmesan and only served it to my partner, none for me. The manager came around, I complimented his establishment, he ignored me and did a very charming good old boy routine of familiarity with my partner, a routine right out of a Mario Puzo novel in its simulation of the jovial Italian patriarch. I decided to pick up the tab, at which time the waiter looked positively distraught at the prospect that he might not get a tip--this was the only acknowledgment of my existence so far. I left him a 16% tip, little less than what I usually tip, as I don't believe that passive aggressive racism is grounds to punitively withhold 7 dollars in tips.

On my way out I was determined to once again take the high road, and complimented the owner. I said, "you have a great restaurant here, sir. I am surprised we haven't eaten here all the years we've lived in the neighborhood". He did not acknowledge my compliment, walked right past me, shook my partner's hand and jovially insisted he come back. Throughout the meal we were 2 of a total of four patrons there. The owner loudly discussed his politics with the other patrons. I will not comment on the content of that obnoxious conversation. Suffices to say we will not be eating at Capri's ever again.

It is a sad fact, but I have grown accustomed to wait staff in restaurants either completely ignore me or ask my partner to speak for me. I have to work on training my partner to diplomatically ensure that wait staff don't get away with such appalling behavior, but this should NOT have to be a project that I need to undertake in this day and age.

Thank you Capri's, for hosting my family in a wonderful graduation celebration dinner. Everyone raved about the food and was stuffed to the brim. If you're looking for authentic Italian food that's ...good regardless of when you go, I highly recommend them! - Dr. J. Herder See More

Authentic Italian. Having lived in Italy for a few years, it was nice to find a place in Raleigh that offered dishes that truly reminded me of being back in Napoli. If only they offered calimari.
