I visited capri just recently b4 that it was 25 yrs ago why i stayed away for so long is just plain stupid they have the BEST lasange ever i'm glad they didn't change theie recipe in over 25 yrs.
If you have'nt tried it you don't know what your'e missing.
I grew up in West Allis during the 60's, 70's, and early 80's and have lived in many parts of the country since. Everytime I get back to West Allis I make it a point to stop at Capri, either to eat in or carry out. They have the best lasagna and their garlic bread is second to none. As others have posted, the decor is nothing to brag about. It has basically been the same since the 70's. As a kid it was always a little scary heading downstairs to the bathroom. It is still the same. It really isn't scary anymore, but you do need to watch your head so you don't smack it on the overhead pipe! No one has mentioned the Italian sausage sandwiches so I will now. They are made with a huge Italian sausage patty between a split piece of bread they use for the garlic bread. Order it with meat sauce. You will not be disappointed. Great for carry out. If you are in Milwaukee, and want to try some of the best Italian food in the US (I am not kidding) at a working mans price, stop in at Capri on the northeast corner of Beloit Road and 84th Street right across the street from the old Johnson School.
First of all…I love Italian food. So I am always on the lookout of quality Italian food. Based on previous reviews I decided to take the wife and mother in-law (what a nice guy I am) to this restaurant. It is a bit small (about twelve tables), the décor is nothing special, the staff is unassuming and friendly. Arrived on a Sunday night about 615pm, the place was about half filled, but there seemed to be quite a bit of take-out activity. Once seated, the waitress handed us the menus and took our drink order. Did not notice appetizers on the menu, but was only interested in ordering the meal anyway. I ordered the lasagna dinner, the others ordered the mostaccioli dinner. With the dinner you receive garlic bread, soup (onion or minestrone), salad (only house Italian, ranch, and one other…cannot remember the other) and spumoni ice cream.
My wife loved the mostaccioli (meat sauce and pasta), and I thoroughly enjoyed the lasagna . We each received garlic bread with the soup/salad portion of the meal, as well as with the dinner…and these “individual” garlic breads are more like loafs of bread….delicious. The minestrone soup was decent, give it 3.5 out of 5. The salad was a wee bit wilted, but it came with two slices of cheese and two slices of yummy pepperoni…which raises it to 3.5. The garlic bread gets a 4.5. The meal receives a 5.0. The price came out to about $17 bucks per person (soda, tax and tip included)...that's a 5.0. We each had enough food left over for a second meal...and I was hungry. The waitress was prompt and friendly...she gets a 5.0. I live about 50 miles away, and am up in Milwaukee on occasion, I do plan on heading back…want to try the pizza next time. Oh, and the spumoni ice cream was awesome too!
A friend of mine brought me to Capri restaurant about three years ago. They have THE BEST LASAGNA that I've ever had. It's served in a small casserole dish that's topped with lots of mozzarella cheese. The sauce is to die for and is truly the defining part of this dish! It's plenty enough for two full meals. It's served with a salad and delicious garlic bread (the size of a small loaf) that's dripping with garlic butter. They're glad to oblige when I request it to be lightly buttered. Don't be turned off by the appearance of the restaurant. It's badly in need of updating, but the food is definitely worth it! I've also had their pizza and spaghetti, which were also delicious. We've had fast, friendly service each time we've dined there. Don't miss this place if you love lasagna!
I had never heard of Capri's until about 4 years ago when I met my now husband. When we walked in I was kind of unsure because of the decor. It was by far the best food I've ever had and we've been going back there frequently! I'm so glad I met my husband, without him I wouldn't have tasted the best lasagna, baked mosticcoli, and garlic bread ever! GARLIC BREAD!
Went there on a Saturday night and went back for carry out on Sunday it was that good and carved it again. Absolutely the best lasagna and garlic bread. The minestrone soup and the pizza were excellent as well. Priced very reasonable for the amount and quality of food that you get. Waitstaff very friendly.
If you are looking for excellent pizza, lasagna, garlic bread, and all for a very reasonable price, this place is for you. In my opinion, it has the best lasagna that I have ever tasted anywhere.
I’ve been going to this place for 37 years and still love it. Over the years they have repeatable kept their food great and prices an even greater deal, especially for the large servings they give you.
My only negative is that the place isn’t very fancy. The inside and outside of the building hasn’t been changed in 30 years. Maybe I just get some comfort in sitting in the same booths and tables that I sat in when my parents took me there as a baby.
