Capo Ratings and Reviews
We do not recommend this establishment. ...
We do not recommend this establishment. Service was average. Noise level was extreme. Table for two was so crowded the waiter could not get through to serve the food or drinks. For the food.. very average. The Zucchini Appetizer was of low quality. The Spaghetti ‘Jean Paul Belmondo’ was nothing special as it was about the same as you'd get any any "mall" Sarpino's Pizzeria. And wine by the glass is way to expensive. A single glass of Chianti at $25.00 or a single glass of Vouray at $30.00 don't waste your money. Sorry their are much better Italian restaurants in the area.

Our reservation was at 10 pm, yet they were rushing us the entire meal/experience. They were literally begging us to order everything (including dessert!) when we first sat down. This was our anniversary dinner that turned into a disaster. Huge bummer.

One of the best restaurants in LA. Top 5 in my book. And the best steak cooked to perfection over an open wood burning grill. A must for any foodie. And the octopus is also amazing. Oh yeah and don't forget all those amazing pastas.

The menu and food at Capo is absolutely phenomenal, but is not inexpensive. In fact, it is very pricey. With that said, if you can afford it, I can't think of a better place to go. It's a hot spot among people who are okay with those prices and you will not be the least bit disappointed in the menu, food, service, drinks, etc.
Plan to drop at least a couple of hundred dollars or more for a dinner of two.

We were appalled at the price of the menu. We were a party of three who have eaten at numerous top priced restaurants around the world and could not believe the cost of the entries. The service was fair and with the prices that were being charged you should have had over the top service. It was a most disappointing experience.

Have been here multiple times and I'm never disappointed. Beautiful atmosphere, incredible and helpful staff, incredible food (must try the white corn raviolis).

Capo was recommended to us by a friend and we were so happy we went! My sisters and I celebrated our September birthdays at Capo. The atmosphere was unique (like a small house with lots to see on the walls). They have an extensive appetizer menu that was wonderful. We especially enjoyed the sweet corn raviolis. The service was outstanding and the pasta was excellent. (I had the rigatoni with meat sauce). It was a very memorable evening and we will definitely be back!

This review is long overdue. This was my 3rd time at Capo and my boyfriend's 7-10th time. We flew in from Texas just to eat at Capo for my boyfriend's 34th birthday, and it was well worth it!! Not only was every bite magnificent, but the service cannot be beat. From the waiter to the manager, each treated us with so much courtesy. Capo is a great place all around! Highly recommended: white corn ravioli in truffle sauce, hamachi, Kansas City dry rub steak, black berry crisp (dessert)

It is a good restaurant and everyone was very nice there. And we did not even paid for the entire bill. We had a gift letter from Capo. They sent it to us because they cancelled my previous reservation that I had for my husband's birthday. Anyway, it is too expensive for the food they offer. Thanks Capo but I don't think I will see you guys again.

Food was good, but not amazing for the money. Our service was excellent, but, again, the food is nothing that unique and not as good as our previous visits.

This was the second time in six months we dined at Capo. The experience was terrific as was the food and service. Five stars.

Delicious grilled artichoke heart salad and corn and truffle ravioli was memorable. Very attentive and friendly waiter. We loved it and would recommend.

Absolutely amazing. Best dining experience we've had since moving to LA 3 years ago. Stacks up to anything in New York, Boston, or London. Service was like you read about. Flavors were amazing. Can't say enough good about the experience. Impeccable.

We have typically dined at Capo perhaps once a year over the last 5.... Upon entering we were remembered and greeted warmly..very nice and very professional. Capo remains one of our favorites. We look forward to visiting for our anniversary in October.

We ordered the Osso Buco, and the preparation was really different-all the meat was cut off the bone & diced, with spices. Instead of the typical shank, we received a longer bone, cut in half with marrow. My husband's stomach was upset for 2 days after eating it. We also ordered the octopus, which was tender, but we did not like the fact that it was smothered in barbecue sauce. Overall, I would say that we thought the restaurant was overpriced & over hyped. Our expectations were not met.

Absolutely the worst LA 'fine' dining experience I have ever had. Our server described the difference between two glasses of Chardonnay in terms of price differentials as opposed to tasting notes. The condescension continued when he couldn't/ wouldn't describe the tasting menu, just that the "chef would decide."
After standing and waiting for five minutes to speak with the floor manager to change waiters, the meal just tanked. Absolutely no genuine accountability from staff- I feel terrible for the chef- heads would roll as a result if this place actually wants to compete for patrons amidst LA finest. What a darn disappointment. Sad to lose local business from tech beach professionals looking to continue client meetings locally.

Food was amazing - caesar salad and rigatoni with truffle meat sauce were the best. The let down was the service, at these prices you expect it to be flawless and it fell way below this.

This restaurant is one of the best. The food is simple and elegant with extra special flavors....lighter than air gnocchi...moist and tender short rib meat in bolognese...delicious! Chocolate souffle is outstanding. The decor and the lighting are perfect and the service is above and beyond. It is a little loud, since there are no sound absorbers, but so worth visiting. Highly recommend!

We are glad we celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary at Capo's. As a subscriber to Wine Spectator I read about Capo and how excellent the food and wine is. We were not disappointed. I had the rigatoni and mushroom soup, both exquisite. My wife and I also enjoyed the half bottle of Barolo wine. We will be coming back again.

Capo's is a wonderful Italian restaurant in the Santa Monica beach area. The Italian pastas are all wonderful - perfection. The artichoke appetizer is delicious, too. Also, had a sole entree which was the best I ever had.

There are so many wonderful creations to try it is hard to decide what to order. Everything is excellently prepared. Plan ahead to get a reservation for this very special experience.

Capo is one of our favorite restaurants in all of Los Angeles. The service and food is among the best. I would not hesitate if you have the money to spend recommending this restaurant.

Outstanding restaurant, VERY VERY EXPENSIVE by most standards. You get what you pay for but this was too high.
We asked for a special tasting menu with wine pairings. This was not on the menu but our server and the staff were very accommodating and provided an excellent meal.
Expensive, but memorable
Four of us dined. We ordered four appetizers, four glasses of wine, four entrees, two deserts and three coffees. Everything was delicious and well presented. The bill (with tip and tax) came to $500. The couple with us is from Chicago and they reiterated that Capo was a memorable experience for them.

Food was great but a bit overpriced. Not sure the prices are justified for the level of food you get. Not sure I'd go there again. Enjoyed but didn't blow me away for the price we paid. Service was excellent though. Very friendly staff.
