Owner Dino Pinelli brings more than 40 years of Old-World expertise to Capri Restaurant’s menu of time-tested Italian classics. High-end ingredients anchor each dish, with ocean-fresh lobster and shrimp burrowing deep beneath blankets of homemade ravioli drizzled in an aromatic pink sauce ($14.95). Servers slip complimentary pickaxes into the mitts of diners scaling meaty strata of ground beef in the signature lasagna, which ushers seas of tomato sauce and rich béchamel down tender sheets of pasta ($12.95). Chicken parmigiana ($14.95) and veal piccata ($17.95) join forces to wow cutlery with their tender textures, and the tartufo’s frosty spheres of gelato sheathe themselves in generous cloaks of hard chocolate, much like covert government spies in Candyland ($6).
Before opening up Capri Restaurant in 2000, owner Dino Pinelli worked as a restaurateur in the French Riviera, on Caribbean cruise ships, and in New York. These experiences helped him develop a simple, yet universally appealing philosophy around food: if you wouldn't serve it to your family, don't serve it to customers. He and his kitchen team showcase this ironclad ethos in each dish served at Capri, from the lunches of caprese paninis made with fresh mozzarella to the hearty, rustic dinners of spaghetti carbonara, dijon-crusted salmon, and tender veal saltimbocca. The restaurant's soothing crimson walls and cloth-clad tables help the dedicated staff cultivate a romantic ambience, but the team can also eschew the elegant digs to cater for 700 people at weddings, large office celebrations, or the birthday parties of children who are absurdly popular.
