The food here is great. You look at the menu, which is very long, and you look at the specials, which are extensive. You order at the counter, and they put it together right away. You get a lot of food, it's very well made, and the flavors are excellent. This is not the classic "red gravy" Italian place, but... More

Well, the view and ambiance may be better in Capri, but you would be hard pressed to find the food anymore delicious or authentic there? Run by two very charming and welcoming Italian brothers, the place is small and unassuming. Part deli, part restaurant, with a big take out service. The deli is brimming with olives, bufola mozzarella, proscuitto, etc.... More

Bottega di Capri is a hole in the wall place in Brookline comparing to fancier restaurants at every street corners. The food is great and the staff extremely friendly. It has limited seating area. We went in with 3 adults and 4 kids. They were very accommodating letting us switching tables after other groups left. We started with 4 orders... More

Good home made food ( different specials every day) and great pasta with wonderful sauces. Delicious Italian coffee - expresso or cafe au lait.

Came here on a Saturday afternoon for lunch. Ordered the linguine shrimps, clams, scallops and it was awesome. It's a nice small clean shop with a pleasant atmosphere. Was not crowded at all and had a few people around. Friendly staff as well

Stopped in for a quick meal, and the place smelled delicious. They had many excellent looking specials, but I opted for a simple meatball sub with mozzarella cheese. The meatballs were delicious! They had the soft texture just like the ones my mother used to make. Marina sauce was also great. The restaurant has limited seating, about 16 seats, but... More

I was just about to walk-out as I didn't find anything on the menu that appealed to me but the friendly man behind the counter greeted me so I decided to try something. I ordered a Panini and ALL I could taste was BREAD, NO other flavors. It was quite unsatisfying and unpleasant.

We have ordered here a few times and picked up take out. The restaurant is small and very casual but a very cute spot for a low key and inexpensive lunch or dinner. The service we receive is fantastic. The Italian sub is huge and delicious! Fresh meats, cheeses and bread. The pasta and sauces are very good but the... More

We went to this restaurant for a light, early dinner with our toddler. The restaurant is tiny (probably could seat only about 10 people comfortably) with a big deli case in the front where you order. They seemed to specialize in their homemade pasta/sauce combinations of which there must be hundreds if you were to mix each of their dozens... More
