Stopped here for lunch. Had not been here in years. Still very nice. Casual elegance. Very nice staff. Great service. I loved my gnocchi. The other party loved her ricotta ravioli with a red sauce with sausage on top (although I thought her red sauce had a very distinctive burnt flavor and did not care for it). We enjoyed ourselves...

Visited on Saturday to celebrate a family birthday. Excellent service and atmosphere- decorated nicely for Christmas. Lasagna was light as air and the pomodoro sauce was delicious. I had the wood fired pizza marguerita- as good as I had in Florence Italy. We had the house salads with vinaigrette- very heavy on the celery and the dressing was bland- not... More

We went here to try some good italian cuisine. Quite and upscale place and they do some modern interpretations of some of the great classics like Ravioli, Cavatell and have some amazing Pizza´s on the menu. Went here with a group of friends and we all had a great night.

Capers & Lemons won't take reservations. We went on a Wednesday night in August, thinking maybe everybody would be on vacation and there would not be a wait. Wrong! We stood around for 40 minutes, waiting for a table for four. That wouldn't have been so bad, except we had been assured by phone earlier that day -- there would... More

My family and I love this place. We try to visit Capers & Lemons at least once per month. My kids which are 6 and 4 years old love our regular waiter Rick and they both love the spaghetti and meatballs. The beer selection is always good and the wine selection is better. Is the best Italian oriented restaurant in... More

This is a nice restaurant, but not much choice for those who don't eat meat or fish. Couldn't they just offer one entree made only of plant based food? They do so much business here that they really don't have to make any changes, but it would be nice. I was in a large party, and everyone else enjoyed their... More

The restaurant is beautiful but very out of place in a growing area. The food is excellent but the app menu is probably what you'll wanna start with. Dinner was rather late but the apps were where it's at. Never made it to dessert because we were full but definitely going back.
