Had an outstanding meal here-- incredible wine selection, wonderful staff, and exquisite food. The vibe is excellent, the art collection funky and unique... and the prices are outrageous. But just a great night! Look forward to going back someday.

On our last night, we dined at Capo and can highly recommend them for authentic Italian Cuisine. The wine list is spectacular! Capo has an intimate, quaint atmosphere yet also very lively and perfect for couples. Perfect late night dining experience.

While the food was really good, there is simply no way anyone should get away with charging $22 for Mushroom Soup as a starter. That is just one of the highlights of the most overvalued menu we have ever seen. The chef is great, but...More

roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
