Whoa! Like a scene from the Godfather or Sopranos! We dined in the private back room...bright red/burgundy carpet on the walls. Copper metal art in shapes of sailboats or houses adorn the walls. Beautiful, timeless, takes you back to another era...dark brick arches and a coffered blue ceiling! Love the ambience and the quality of the authentic Italian fare. There... More

I ordered some food through JustEat.ca for delivery. After an hour of not getting anything delivered, I called the store to ask how long delivery through JustEat.ca should take, she said an hour. She said she didn't know if it had left cause she's​ in the front and has to go to the back and she would go to the... More

As mentioned in previous reviews, the service here is very slow, that is to say.... extremely slow. No fault of the only waitress on the floor, pour woman is running around trying to serve all tables. I could have dealt with that, as we were not in a rush, but when the food finally did come it was gawd-awful. Fettucini... More

The Capri was a restaurant I frequented when I lived in Hamilton 30 years ago and the downtown core was more vibrant. They still,serve big portions of homemade Italian food. The staff is friendly and service us good. The fresco of an Italian landscape is still there on the rear wall. Reservations on the weekend are necessary. By peak dinner... More

The Capri was one of my favourite Italian restaurants in Hamilton and we frequently ate there. However, a few years back the food started to decline. The tomato sauce looked like tomato juice and was flavourless so we stopped going. However, my boyfriend had dinner there while he was on jury duty and he said that the quality of his... More

Unbelievable service, was told to hold on for a minute to get a table, 25 minutes later we were seated, 15 minutes after that we got asked for drinks, got one at a time. Place was busy and only had 1 waitress and one person that seemed like the owner. I had pasta, pasta was cooked well but the sauce... More

The Capri has been around as long as I can remember and their Italian food is just as good today as it was 40 years ago!

Great atmosphere. Great Italian food. Great staff. It's a good idea to book a reservation. If you like Italian food, this is one of the oldest operating restaurant in Hamilton that you must visit.

we were 2 couples, celebrating a birthday on a Saturday night, and we picked Capri's based on its menu. It was right in downtown Hamilton and very cosy and "old world" inside. Service was extremely slow. We constantly had to ask other wait staff to have her come to our table to order a course or get our bill. The... More
