Wonderful place alot bigger than its curb appeal. Make reservations especially on the weekend or you'll wait in line. Food and service was great didn't wait long for food to come out. House Dj was spining formiluar tunes drinks where great although I had rum and coke. Ordered a cake it was HUGE! But taste great.

Went to brunch with 2 friends. We each had our babies with us. Its a nice open space, service and food were great. Its a nice open space, so comfortable when you have a lot of baby gear.

Great food but way to loud- any heat the person sitting next to you.
Wouldn’t go back for dinner- maybe would go back with a group of friends for a drink at the bar. The music was good but the noise level was so high that it was not enjoyable to be there.

Great food, service, and atmosphere! I did feel as though dinner was paced on the longer side, however, and while my party had time to hang out, others may be frustrated.

I usually like Capo but the service was terrible last night and it wasn’t full yet. No water, they took the bread and salad before we finished

I went to Capo for my birthday and had a wonderful meal. There was a slight snafu with the waiters not knowing who was taking our table that led to a wait prior to having service, but I want it noted that a wonderful waitress noticed, spoke with us, took action, and found out who was supposed to be taking our order. She could just have easily shrugged it off as not her table, not her issue, or just reported it to other staff to correct, but the fact that she checked in with us and made sure we were taken care of (and later followed up with us as well!) made a huge difference in my perception of the incident. My group is pretty easy going, and mistakes happen, so all in all everything turned out quite well. Our actual waiter was wonderful and took good care of us for the rest of our meal. The food was delicious. It was quite a bit louder than I was expecting by the "moderate" noise level noted on Opentable, but overall I would say I had a wonderful experience at Capo! I would absolutely go back again!

The server was undeniably rube towards a friend because she had an out of state ID. The food was okay, but not memorable. The first time I went I gave it a bad review and went to try again. It was worse. Waited 4+ hours to get into the downstairs after eating dinner and having a reservation. We had reservations at 630 and didn’t get downstairs until 10:30. Once we got down there it looked like a college party, in someones parents basement. Drinks sucked, it smelt awful. The floor was so sticky. The guys in there were sleazy and touchy grab and when we said something to management they rolled their years and said we were just drunk. Will not be going back

We visit Capo often for an early reservation with our toddler. At 5pm, it's very kid friendly and the food and service is always consistent. The food is excellent with very generous portions and we love the staff there.

WAY too loud for dinner. Food was just okay, there is much better Italian in Boston with a better atmosphere. We went for valentines day dinner, it is not the place to go on a date. If you want to go here, just grab drinks (but be willing to spend a lot on them). Cocktails were $12-14. Chocolate cake was good.

Greeted at the door by a nice welcoming man, that alone made us feel at home. We arrived almost 30min late and after a few minutes we were seated thankfully during a busy valentines evening which was nice because when I called they said they only hold tables for 15min. Our waitress Stephanie was very nice and helpful explaining the dishes and specials of the night. We ordered the meatballs as a starter and they were fantastic. Drinks were nice and strong and came out fast. We sat in the rear of the restaurant and it was beautiful with the exposed brick walls, wood pizza stove and fireplace. Very cozy and romantic, just perfect for the night. I ordered the stuffed lobster tail with a side of potatoes and charred asparagus, it was ok. But my sweetheart ordered the chicken Alfredo and it was the best I’ve ever had, to die for with the right amount of breaded crumbs on top! App, dinner, drinks and dessert a total of $185. Overall it was a nice dinner and we plan on coming back and highly recommending to others.
Thank you.

We really enjoyed our meal and our server Ryan was great and we are not an easy table lol! The food was all great and we tried a lot of different things. The Veal Marsala was phenomenal. Chicken Parm was great. We also tried the Calamari, buratta, shrimp scampi, arancini, spaghetti, and cavatelli.

I came to celebrate my friends birthday for brunch. They advertise that their brunch menu ends at 3pm. We were seated by 2:35. When our server came to the table she told us they were no longer serving brunch and handed us an albeit limited dinner menu with five meal options and three appetizers. We were very disappointed at the selection and the bluntness of our waitress. When we questioned the 3pm stop and why so early she said she didn’t know and that we just had to order from the dinner menu. Very disappointed we left and went to a different restaurant. Overall it was a very poor experience

We had the best service at Capo celebrating our 1 year anniversary. While making our reservation on OpenTable we mentioned we were coming back to celebrate 1 year together after meeting at Capo last year. Our server Olivia took amazing care of us, giving us a free round of champagne and sending out a free appetizer from the kitchen. The food and the service were excellent and we were so impressed that they took a reservation note online and created such a special experience for us. The food was excellent, they have some of the best meatballs in the city. We will definitely continue to frequent Capo
