I have so many favorites here, the Trout Almondine with lemon sauce, or the Chicken Alfredo Lasagna,or the Eggplant Parmesan, or the pizza with everything on it - delicious - but anything with their red sauce on it is a winner. They also make the best tiramisu in the city.

I have eaten at Capparelli's On Main and the other Capparelli's since the early 80's. The food is always fresh and good. I love their red sauce and the meatballs. This is a very nice restaurant and a great place to go on a date.
I highly recommend this restaurant for Italian dishes.

One of my work friends LOVES this place. I think it is pretty ordinary. It is OK, but not really anything special. They do have a nice outdoor patio.

This is better than good, but not great. My wife had the Chicken Picatta and enjoyed it, with its lemony, creamy sauce. I enjoyed the Lasagna, because it was made "the right way", with sliced meatballs, sliced Italian sausage and mozzarella cheese and ricotta cheese. It also had mushrooms. A lot of places nowadays use solely ricotta cheese and the meat is either ground meat within or even in the sauce; sorry but that's just not traditional. So the lasagna was excellent. Except that the sauce was very thin with no body, almost like tomato soup! The flavor was mild and OK, but tomato sauce should have more body. My wife had a side of rigatoni pasta with her chicken and the rigatoni had the same thin marinara sauce. The complimentary garlic bread was like soft hoagie rolls toasted; not a good hearty crusty french or italian bread as it should be. So, with that thin sauce, hence the deduction of a point (and another half if I could). Service was very good and the place was clean and inviting. We would go again but not before trying other choices.
