My wife and I dine here about once a month. It's a great little place located within the neighborhood shopping center near the grocery store, banks, multiple shops, and a few other restaurants. It's a little fancy with table clothes and the staff is always dressed professionally, however, people typically dress casually. Anything from cargo shorts and tropical shirts to... More

Capri Blu offers a nice range of traditional Italian dishes. Everything is homemade and the quality is definitely there. Prices are reasonable for a restaurant with a tablecloth. The dining room is quiet. The bar area sometimes offers live music and there is an outdoor patio dining room overlooking a small pool/fountain. This is a nice place for a date... More

If I can provide a half star I would. I have been going to Capri blu for over 3 years now. Although food is mediocre at best, service is good, its entertainment for wine is fun, and the wine/music is the main reason we return. I will never return and make sure my friends will never return to this restaurant... More

Many thanks for your review of Capri Blu and we are sorry you feel this way. You are correct in that we do have a policy of not allowing outside food to be brought in however this policy is a legal one in order to protect everyone in case of food poisoning from outside food. However in this circumstance, we... More

Looking for a nicer dinner or place to get a great cocktail in North County, Capri Blu is your spot. Friendly service, nice atmosphere, and a spacious bar to enjoy a well prepared drink. On the pricey side, but well,worth a great night for a romantic dinner.

The House specials were superb. I had the Seabass with mashed potatoes and green beans. Service was excellent and surroundings were pleasant.

Took our two grandsons with us go dinner. It's a beautiful place. You have many servers so your always being taken care of. The food is very good. No kids menu but ask and they cook a few things for them. Chicken strips and French fries, cheese ravioli. They have a room that seats 20 for groups and it's very... More

Group of 10 dinning out on our monthly get together. Early dinner at 6 pm, so no waiting and not very busy for a Saturday night. We were given a small private room off the main dinning area, perfect for our group of 5 couples. Great service attending to our personal individual desires with a smile and attention to detail....

I really love this place, we have been going there for years! The HH and local bar-flies make this the place to be on Thirsty Thursday in 4s Ranch, oh and the live band makes it the total package. We attend their New Year's party every year and ring in the New Year with our favorite bartender, James and the... More

Busy place on a Friday night. There was a singer guitarist entertaining in the background. We were seated in the enclosed patio as we had not made a reservation and the place was packed. The atmosphere was lively and decor more contemporary, no corny "Italian accents" Portion of baked ziti was enough for two meals. I asked for them to... More
