One of the best Italian restaurants in the USA. Without question!
Nice warm casual elegant Ambiance and decor. Out of 6 dishes we ordered, 2 were quite good rest were unremarkable.
-single fresh sardine grilled in wood oven $30+
-lobster risotto $36'ish
- venison $67
- pasta 3 sampler (first 2 on menu plus corn ravioli with truffle $36
- grilled Cesar
Pasty, non complementary tomato'ish sauce on grilled octopus
Absolutely exceptional start to finish
Ambiance, food and service was very good. Prices are over the top ridiculous.
This is not for the faint of wallet - but it is extremely worth it. 2 people - dinner, three glasses of wine, excellent spread of food - $450
I am absolutely 1000% in support of their 20% added gratuity on every check - though - to be brutally honest - charging prices as considerably high as theirs are and still not being able to pay a living wage without tips is sort of
Ordered the Branzino but was disappointed when it came. The waiter misled me into believing it was a whole fish grilled then filleted. It was not a whole fish but a fillet. I believe the waiter honestly thought it was a whole fish and just misunderstood my question.
One of the most amazing pasta dishes I’ve ever had in my entire life.
This is the best restaurant in Los Angeles. Hands Down
Fantastic food. TOOOOOOO. LOUD!!!! Capo used to have a great medium level atmosphere. Now it’s playing loud music and we could barely have a conversation at our table of four. Really makes us not want to go back just because it’s too loud. I hope they see this and do something about it. We move the food there. Just can’t stand the noise.
We look forward to coming to this restaurant each time we are in town and we have recommended it to many. Unfortunately this time was very disappointing experience. The veal was off and had to be sent back. The chef, manager and waitress tasted confirmed it was not right. The vegetables were extremely salty. The waitress then commented on the bill that off course we did not charge you for the veal. I would hope not! After spending $600 on the meal I would have expected the manager to come over at bare minimum and perhaps some form of gesture from the kitchen to say sorry. I will say this leaves a bad feeling and reluctance to return.
Capo is always special. The ambience is great, and the food and service are excellent. Our most recent visit was memorable for the uni pasta and the Bryan Flannery Dry Aged Kansas City Steak. The steak was among the best I have enjoyed in Los Angeles and was so big that I ate half for dinner and half the next morning for breakfast. Appreciation to our server Roger for the recommendation. Highly recommended.
Capo is by far the best restaurant we have been to in the LA area. On this occasion, the four of us had pork, veal, pasta, and risotto, along with various appetizers. All were simply excellent. Although it took a longer than expected wait to order, once the order was complete, the service was fast, attentive, and completely what one would expect. We ate a bit later than usual this time at Capo and watched the kitchen staff clean. Wow, what an impressive show in itself. Capo is expensive but we have never felt that management overcharged for the service and quality.
Outstanding at every level
I hate the idea that they automatically add 20% gratuity ( for a party of 4) especially on wine. There was some silly statement on the bill about “equality “ which is a ridiculous statement. I spent 3x on wine vs. food (none of which the Sommelier recommended...
One the best restaurants in LA.
Amazing service. Food was great but basic and for that, extremely expensive. I paid $470 for two and I brought my own wine.
I love this restaurant. We dined here on our wedding anniversary. The food was delicious and the wine list was exceptional. It’s definitely a restaurant for special occasions unless you of course, you can afford a $500 dinner for two every week!
Food is amazing and service is usually top notch as well. Was a bit disappointed because this time around they wouldn’t open the wine I brought and pay corkage because it happened to be on their wine list.
Beautiful space, great service, very good food, but unnecessarily expensive.
Caesar salad is amazing! If you like seafood pasta get the linguini with clams
It was my 3rd visit to Capo and a special occasion/ my wife’s birthday
As long as you don't look at the prices you will love Capo.
It was our first time at Capo. I’ve heard good things for a number of years and was delighted to try it.
All agreed, the grilled Caesar salad was the best dish we had all night.
The veal chop was gorgeous, however the meat was tough. For $71 I expected better. The veal scallopini was ok. The sauce was oily and the meat also could have been more tender.
The veggies that accompanied the chop and the scallopini were perfectly done.
The complimentary sweets at the end of the meal was a lovely touch, however it would have been great if they had accompanied our coffees.
Service was on point and friendly
Incredible experience. Food, service, ambience and music are as good as one can hope for. VERY expensive, so go in with an open mind and pocketbook.
whenever i’m in LA for work, Capo is my favorite place to eat
This is our second time we had dinner with friends at capo
We were with long time friends and did not want to spoil the evening
That being said
The food was incredibly salty... does the chef taste what he serves?
We ate as much as we could but frankly a $700 dollar dinner for four
With incredibly salty food was a let down.
This review is not about the money
It’s about the experience and enjoying time with friends
I had the fillet that encrusted with salt
My friend had the sole again salt
The guys had a risotto with crab and a veal chop. No one could finish the meal , let’s not even talk about the bloating later
Honestly it’s a shame because the products do not need to salted to death
Good luck to the Kitchen team
Best meal I ever had in LA. Great ingredients, great service, wine a bit pricy but se la vie
At Capo excellent food and service can’t quite compensate for what is a very cramped and noisy restaurant with prices that are significantly higher than those of restaurants with food of comparable quality. The wine list is long and impressive, but very expensive and with a noticeable lack of low and mid range wine options. The bar however is excellent. Capo seems to be content to charge a lot and cater to high rollers and tourists with healthy expensive accounts. I can’t fault this business model - being small they can easily fill the restaurant as they have been for several years. It’s worth visiting ... once.
Always an incredible time. A in the know secret hot spot
I suggested Capo for my son to take me for my birthday. Prices are not listed on the internet. It was much more expensive than expected. We just ordered pastas as main dishes were too expensive. It was crowded and noisy.
My favorite restaurant for any occasion! It is cozy, welcoming, fun. The sweet corn ravioli is what dreams are made of! Great service. Can’t wait to go back!
Very overpriced for medium quality food and small portions. I love rock music, but not while dining in an upscale Italian restaurant. Very pretentious place. Excellent dessert. $22 cosmo! Great attentive service. We are local and likely won’t be back.
My favorite Italian Restaurant in Los Angeles. Superb food. Pasta is perfect and branzino is best in class. This is my happy place!
Food and service was good. A bit noisy but it’s also Los Angeles.
The ambiance was nice but very hot in the restaurant. The waiter was good and attentive. The food was just okay and very expensive for what is was. Not bad just not great.
Great service, good food, really expensive, however, worth it on occasions.
Arrogant waiter, prices are absurdly inflated, especially for the quality of the food, music was inappropriate and too loud. Eggplant appetizer was plain awful. Spinach ravioli and roast chicken were very good. Amazing art on the walls. Never going back.
Fantastic ... only issue better not order the pork chop, other places are better ... but Pasta and wine selection just Perfect !!!!
