Capri Ristorante Italiano Restaurant Review

: This longtime Italian seafood restaurant features authentic Italian entrées, but the kitchen is best known for its fish dishes, especially the grilled whole branzino, flown in fresh daily. Other bests are its seafood stew, or zuppa di pesce, and the crab meat-shrimp cake. If you are not in the mood for fish, try any of the pasta dishes or the chicken or veal specialties. Appetizers also include seafood selections, such as the fried calamari or sautéed mussels, but you may feel more in the mood for the minestrone. Italian wine selections complement the fare. For a sweet ending, your choices include tiramisu, cannoli, crème caramel, and chocolate mousse cake, all made on the premises.
