For more than 25 years, Capri Ristorante's "Mama" and family have piled plates high with authentic Italian cuisine crafted from fresh ingredients, house-made recipes, and meat and seafood that are never frozen. Diners can rev up their human food processors with a cold appetizer of arugula insalata, bedecked with balsamic vinegar and parmigiano reggiano, or stretch their jaws like fanged elastic around a warm starter of lightly breaded calamari fritti. A lineup of hearty entrees await their turn at bat, showcasing such star players as the vodka-sauce-soaked eight-finger cavatelli or the pollo calabrisella, a slow-roasted chicken supported by a fan following of screaming saut?ed peppers and fainting roasted potatoes. Sweet teeth can indulge in an assortment of delectable desserts, including tiramisu, carrot cake, and lemon sorbet, as each guest sips red or white house wine carefully selected from Capri?s stock to color coordinate with patrons? socks.
