Food was great and service was excellent. However, Saturday night is not the time for a nice dinner with good conversation. The bar scene is LOUD and is definitely what the place is geared towards. They actually had to ask people to move so we could be squeezed into a table next to the high top being leaned on. This is with empty tables a little further away. Our waiter had more sense and moved us. If not for the level of service, this review would not be as positive.

I came with my husbands family for his birthday and we had an amazing meal! We got the mushroom pizza and meatballs as an appetizer and loved the pizza so much we spontaneously asked for another one. Everyone loved their entrees (rigatoni bolognese and eggplant parm were standouts) and the service was excellent. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great celebration spot in Southie!

Food was excellent but was charged for 1/2 order of pasta w/ bolognese when I asked for bolognese on the pasta that came with the dish instead of pomodoro. Was not told that I would be charged extra $12!!!

I’ve been to capo on a number of times but the past two experiences have been exceptional thanks to the phenomenal service from our waiter Aaron on both occasions. My girlfriend is allergic to all dairy which can be difficult to find safe options at restaurants at times and Aaron was extremely accommodating with helping her find the best options on the menu. The food was prepared perfectly everything was delicious and brought to the table fairly quick which was impressive with how full the place was. I’ve always had a great impression of Capo but I’ve been highly impressed the more I frequent it!

Came here about a month ago and it was fabulous. Food was great as was the service. However this time, I think they were understaffed which unfortunately affected the service and the food. Would still return here but this time was a miss.

We had a large party and the service and food were great. The only negative is that it was a bit chilly near the window and it took an extra 5 minutes for 3 people in our party to get their meals. Other than that it was great!

Rustic modern decor and creative dishes make this one of my new favorite places. The server was timely, knowledgeable and interacted with our group. We had half a dozen hungry people with outspoken senses of humor and she was great. The food is delicious - the bacon wrapped figs area a must - but the menu is full of enticing bites. Capo also has a dedicated parking lot, which is fantastic for those who drive into the city. Go and enjoy. I'll definitely be back.

Is it a restaurant or a bar?? VERY LOUD as everyone needed to yell over the background music.
Food was weak...great arugula salad and meatball antipasti; chicken Alfredo was heavy on very al dente pasta but thin on sauce and chicken, while flavorful was gnarly. Wine list was fair in quality

The girls at the front desk are extremely rude and make the entire night a hassle. They told us 400 people were ahead of us to get downstairs, but when people don’t show they don’t move people up on the list, therefore unable to provide an accurate wait time. When we asked for a time check, the one girl was extremely rude and wouldn’t give a straight answer, just said “you’ll receive a text IF you can down.” We have come before when the wait was 500+ and never had an issue getting downstairs by 11pm. The front desk girls continuously got ruder as the night went on if we asked for an update.

First time at Capo, will definitely be back. Just recommend it to a friend that has some guests coming into Boston this Friday night. Love the atmosphere. Julia and Chris our servers were outstanding. They were both super friendly and so knowledgeable about the menu. Now I want to try Lincoln, Loco and Fat Baby 👍😊

The place is beautiful. Our waiter was horrible. He had to "find me" an unsweetened iced tea which took about 20 minutes while everyone else at my table had their cocktails. I asked for a straw when it came, he never brought one (a nice bus boy did).

I ordered the Brick Chicken which was very slimy I and actually got sick in the middle of the night. I asked the waited for a sharp knife to cut the chicken, again, he never brought me one. The roasted cauliflower was absolutely delicious.

Our waiter is the main reason why we will not be back. He could have been bothered with us, never smiled, never brought the two things that I had asked for (I was not rude about it at all). You can tell he was just not into waiting on us, we all got the same vibe.

Not sure what happened with the Chicken. I can't say if that is why I got sick but it just didn't seem like it was really cooked through. My husband wouldn't even try it and he loves chicken.

Food was cold upon arrival. Servers did not have the common sense to supply syrup or ketchup for the orders they delivered (many of which were cold). When the coffee first arrived, there was a container of sugar (which had caked on ketchup -seriously -does no one notice when they are dirty?) at one end of an 11 person table. No awareness by servers to check this. When a coffee refill arrived, I thought, great, they are aware, but the refill was cold -come on!! Also, they were out of cream (just had milk) and wheat bread. On a Saturday morning, whomever orders supplies could not guess you would need these items - or had the initiative to go to the grocery store and get them? The place was EMPTY. It would not have been a hardship. But now I know why it was empty.

On the plus side, I have heard this is a good bar (not great because there is apparently one long time bartender who is -not friendly- we'll say) and dinner spot. I came for dinner long ago and only remember a good time. I will come again at dinner time, never breakfast though.

We went to capo for their ‘friendsgiving’ and we couldn’t believe the value for money we got! It was 20 dollars per person for a full share style turkey dinner and a slice of pie. The meal was exquisite- i don’t know what part of it I liked most or least it was all so delicious! The festive buzz was also really enjoyable! We loved it so much we have booked another date night there for December!
