Great atmosphere. Great Italian food. Great staff. It's a good idea to book a reservation. If you like Italian food, this is one of the oldest operating restaurant in Hamilton that you must visit.

we were 2 couples, celebrating a birthday on a Saturday night, and we picked Capri's based on its menu. It was right in downtown Hamilton and very cosy and "old world" inside. Service was extremely slow. We constantly had to ask other wait staff to have her come to our table to order a course or get our bill. The... More

Used to be my all-time favourite restaurant but food has declined to the point where I won't go back. Had two disappointing meals last year, and had avoided the Capri since then, but went back last night with a friend to give it another try. Very disappointed. The lasagna was bland, almost to the point of being inedible. Loaded on... More

This is a quaint family restaurant. The food is authentic Italian and quite good, the staff are helpful and friendly and the quality of the food is very high. I liked the dated interior and find that it gives character to the place. Four of us ate here and three of us went home pleasantly stuffed. I regret having followed... More

The people who served us were very friendly. Especially Angela was great. The restaurant was clean, and it seemed like i was having a night in italy. The food i had was good but my pasta did not include enough sauce or cheese. When i asked them for more they went right away. It was very nice and awesome there.

Looking for a pizza restaurant for our last meal in Hamilton. Nice ambience, pleasant staff, menu looked reasonable. Starters ok. Main courses was two stories. Pizza was huge and resulted in doggy bags for the kids. Good on the taste front but still don't get this limit of two toppings in Canada. Paid $4.50 for one additional topping! Spaghetti and...

Was excited to try this place as I heard [mostly] positive experiences. However I left absolutely less than satisfied. We dined with a family of 10. There were maybe 6 or 8 other people in the restaurant at the time. Our server was nice. She was polite. A little older but was terrible at serving. She literally would take a... More
