An old brick chalet built by La Cosa Nostra is the vibe for Gay's (the owner) Italian retreat. This is a two story dining room with huge, ominous looking mafia family type pictures in sepia tones on the wall that give one the feeling that Big Brother is watching. It's a guardedly comfortable somewhat dark dining room with white table... More

This is one of my college daughter's fave places and loved our experience here for my birthday dinner. Fab food, terrific service in a festive atmosphere. The holiday decor, at the time, was charming and subdued. Loved this restaurant and understand why it is a favorite with my daughter and her college friends, who attend nearby Trinity University. Looking forward... More

Very delicious Italian menu. Eggplant parmigiana was wonderful. A delightful eatery for lunch or dinner. A perfect after church Sunday treat.

We have been to this restaurant many times, and it is always good, with great service. Very popular with the lunch crowd in Monte Vista. The food is maybe a little above average, but the ambiance is great, and everyone is happy and talking a lot. Overall, always a nice experience.

Great atmosphere as well as the Italian food. Sat upstairs overlooking the two piece combo(piano & sax), Naomi was an excellent waitstaff. The "shrimp primavera" and "chicken Alfredo lasagna" were both some of the better in San Antonio.

My 23yr old son wanted to bounce some things off his mom so he suggested dinner and knows mom loves Italian food. We went on a Sunday at around 7pm and didn't have to wait to be seated. It's a small establishment in the middle of a nice neighborhood. I had the Chicken with linguine, sun-dried tomatoes and mushrooms in... More

We took an Uber here after finding all of downtown Italian restaurants were booked for dinner. Definitely worth the short drive. Great character, friendly service, and most importantly great food! So happy!!

Grrreat Italian restaurant. We happened on this place quite by accident, but a lucky find it was. Nice ambience to the place, it was quite busy, but the food and service was excellent. We split a large combo plate of 3 of their signature pasta dishes. It was a large enough portion for two hungry guys. The star was the... More

Capparelli's is USUALLY very good. But you can sometimes catch them on off days. I've had some of the best Italian food in town, and have also waited an hour to get the wrong food. So role the dice and take your chances, I suppose!
