Best

I just tried this place. I love the food and the service is better. The pizza is my favorite. The twins that own the place are a riot! Pros: Beer on Tab! Cons: Parking

I am an East Coast Italian and yes, I grew up eating homemade Italian food. So, admittedly, I am hard to please. I went to this restaurant for the first time last night, since it ...

Never Again 7/20/2011

Me and my husband saw the Capri on Hells Kitchen and figured let go try it out, the food was okay vary mediocre not that great, this is definitely not authentic italian food, and the owners the TWINS what a joke all they did when we where there is put down there employees, it was as if they think there employees are trying to still there lighting or something, there since of humor is mediocre just like your food, your not funny...everyone pick the pizza pie, much better actually the best in Eagle Rock.... more

Great Service 7/15/2008

So the family and I wanted Italian one night and a friend of ours had recommended (highly) this place for us. We were pretty excited because I knew that my friend had a very similar taste in food to me and the rest of my family. We were seated quickly and in a cozy little table. We had a great time with some great food. The pizza was delicious and these guys really know how to put the toppings on there. We had a great time and looking forward to returning sometime in the future. Pros: Great Service and Food Cons: Far away from home (not their fault about that) more

just terrific naighborhood haunt for Italian 5/1/2008

The Capri is not the best or worst Italian Restaurant. It is however, the most kitch. I love this place. The twins rock, and the food is pasta house neghborhood good. Not great at anything, but really decent at most. I like to with a good magazine, by myself in the corner. See you there. Pros: neighborhood Kitch, wonderful family place, the twins rock Cons: are you kidding, I eat here, no cons!! more

Great local place 3/19/2008

I've been going to the Capri for about the past 20 years, through several owners, and one of the great things about this place is that it has never changed. The food is good, the service friendly. My favorite is the veal. I now live in Budapest but whenever I'm back in LA, I make the Capri one of my stops. more

Great Service, Cozy Family Atmosphere 2/26/2008

My girlfriend and I went to The Capri on a Sunday night. What a fabulous place. It's not fine dining, but it's very good quality at reasonable prices. That's hard to find in LA. I had the Chicken Parm and she the Lasagna. Both were great. We especially appreciated the $5 corkage fee as we had our own bottle. Our waitress was exceptional and very personable. I don't think I can say anything that I would have changed. Simple, Good Food, Fair Prices, Friendly Service. We will definitely be back in the future. Pros: Service, Value, Portions, Atmosphere more

cute family restaurant 12/18/2007

I mean the family who qwns the Capri is cute. Its always fun to go there. Its really a family business and the twin boys (grown men) are adorable. It is a fact we were missing the eggplant in the eggplant parmegiano but who cares, thats how my mom would have made it too. Pros: small, intimate, friendly more

WHY BOTHER??? THEY DON'T!!!!! 10/6/2007

We were looking for a no fuss, good food, Italian place close by. The sign inside says, Please wait to be seated...and we waited, waited, waited, no one greeted and finally after 5-10 min. the grumpy white haired woman said, we'll be with you in a few minutes. Still waiting, we almost walked out. FINALLY being seated we ordered. The salad (or dressing with a side of salad) came before the drinks. The garlic bread was no good. I ordered the Olive Oil & Garlic (a very simple classic dish) and my friend ordered the Italian Sausage and Peppers. I knew I was in trouble when the waiter wasn't sure what I was ordering, yet it was on the menu...I think the cook didn't know either because when it arrived, it was swimming in slosh, the garlic was raw and not sauteed and it tasted like it had clam juice in it. I kept trying to eat it and it was just horrible. My friend tried it and he said that's just not good- it's a soupy mess. I tried his dish and it was much better - not great, but good and far better than my dish. Pros: Good parking, no wait Cons: Lousy food, lousy service more

Pizza Lovers Pizza 9/19/2007

Happen to be driving by the family was hungry, the kids and myself are pizza lovers, this seemed like the place to go. Great pizza, nice place to dine and all were happy. The brothers are the perfect hosts. Thanks guys. more

Best Pizza 9/7/2007

The Capri is open and is great!! The Phone number is wrong. Should b (323)257-3225. Insider health tip: try the whole wheat pizza with turkey sausage! Pros: Great freindly atmosphere Cons: Weekends mya have to wait 10-15 minutes more

no longer in business 8/27/2007

The main entrance is locked!! Unfortunately the restaurant is no longer in business! don't waste your time! more

Family Friendly 11/24/2006

The brothers that run this place are a hoot, and the food is tasty and cheap. It's hard to find a toddler-friendly spot in the L.A. area, but between the vibrant decor, available sippy cups, and plentiful booths, my little guy was quite pleased, as was I. more

get the capri colossal!!! 10/15/2006

i love this place. The best pizza to order is the Capri Colossal, it's got loads and loads of meat ;-) Pros: great pizza. decent service Cons: construction on eagle rock boulevard can make driving there a bit slow more

Yes, there is another pizza place in Eagle Rock 9/6/2006

The Capri has a family feel to it, seeing that the family is always there. We've been going there for 5+ years, and generally have good service, especially if the family is there. The pizza is usually really good, but have been a little disappointed on a couple of occassions (not every place can hits a home run every night). The pastas are pretty good, and the salads/ apps are fine. Just a fun atmosphere, and there is usually a ball game on TV. Pros: Food, atmosphere Cons: Can be inconsistant more

easy in pj's 7/23/2006

living closeby, it's so nice have a small, family-owned restaurant that we can just crawl out of the house and go eat at. it's cheery, easy, and has fabulous thin-crust pizza. the food isn't fine dine material, but it's not terrible nor appalling - kind of a home-cooked meal when you don't feel like cooking. perfect for the times when you don't want to get dolled up, or too tired to cook, or just to pop by and eat at w/ a book. Pros: easy, homey more

Very Disappointed 6/8/2005

I am an East Coast Italian and yes, I grew up eating homemade Italian food. So, admittedly, I am hard to please. I went to this restaurant for the first time last night, since it is close to my home. I asked what was homemade and was told that the pasta was not homemade, but the sauce was. So, I decided against pasta and ordered chicken parmesan. That way I could sample the sauce at least. The chicken parmesan was so overcooked, I could barely cut into it. Normally one can cut into this dish with ease, but the chicken was as hard as leather. I had to saw at it. In addition, the sauce on the side of spaghetti had no flavor whatsoever. I tried my companion's pizza and the sauce tasted like Ragu. I just cannot recommend this restaurant for family-style, tasty Italian dishes. Pros: Homey, Not too expensive Cons: Bad sauce, Not worth it more

Thin-crust Lover Heaven 3/24/2005

If you love thin crust pizza like I do, then you have to try the Capri. The Capri has always been a family owned business, although I believe it's changed hands since I first started going there in 1980. The atmosphere at the Capri can only be described as ""neighborhood"". It's not one of those destination restaurants where people drive miles and miles to dine there, so it's usually packed with mostly Eagle Rock residents. If you don't mind dining in small booths with other friendly diners, then this is probably a good try for you. Just keep it quiet, will ya. more

Great thin pizza 3/8/2005

This family owned and operated italian restaurant is one of the many hidden gems tucked away in Eagle Rock. One of the few places that still brings a sense of community and Mayberry feel. I have had many pizza's in my day. But this is by far the lightest I have ever had! After gorging myself with a feast set for King Henry, I felt as if I could run the L.A marathon. The crust was so light that it didn't weigh me down one bit. No pizza hangover here!!! The toppings were fresh and plentiful! Even my friend who is intolerant to pizza sauce thoroughly enjoyed this pie! Two thumbs up!!! Pros: Thin, Fresh, Family operated Cons: Not open 7 days/ Week more
