Go Inside 4 A Drink During Happy Hour, That's About It! – We went to this place a few nights ago, when we entered the ambiance was quite different and unique, but pretty empty. The service was waaaaaaay overkill, and the servers kept rushing us to get our order and clean our table as fast as possible! The food is ok, but the prices overall are pretty high....A glass of house wine is $7 and sodas are $3 each, come on now! We don't eat a whole lot, so we spilt our meal, and they had the nerve to charge us a $4 splitting fee, even though we added salads! Then the server brought us the check and completely messed it up by trying to overcharge us! I would recommend for those of you that want to check this place out, to go during there happy hour, and sit at the bar just to see what the inside looks like....We will not be going there ever again! I do recommend Casa Di Amore's or De Stefano's off of East Tropicana; better food, prices, service and entertainment!
Great Ambience and Presentation. – The food is fairly inexpensive, plentiful, and pretty good, and so is the service. And, there is only a $15.00 cork fee for those who wish to bring a bottle from home. However, I did not rate this place a 9 because of its food, service, or cork fee. The ambience and presentation are enough to mask most of the shortcomings, and there are not many. In sum, the experience begins before you enter the door--you'll just have to go there to see what I mean.
This is a perfect place to take out-of-town guests at a more-than-reasonable price. The decor is extremely "mobbed out," complete with a Thompson sub-machine gun posted behind the bartender. If you have always wanted to be treated like a gangster, but never wanted to risk going to prison, Capo's is your place. Ask for the John Gotti table.
Do It !! – Some good friends, who are also restaurant owners, recommended Capo's very highly, and so we joined them for dinner one night, and we were most impressed ! The atmosphere, ambiance, service, and food were all equally terrific. Simply stated...great italian food, great place to go for a wonderful dinner ! If anyone has negative things to say about this fine restaurant, then we must assume they were not actually there !!
Dominic, our hats are off to you and your fine staff, and keep up the good work.....you can count on us to be "regulars", and we will sing your praises whenever we have the opportunity !!
Best kept secret in Las Vegas – Why would gazillionaire Nico Santucci open an intimate speakeasy off the strip in las vegas? Cause he eats there every night he's in town. And now I know why. The food is awesome and the red sauce reminds me of chicago. It's a really intimate atmosphere and it seems to be attracting the right folks. When I walked in I saw Mark Wahlberg having dinner with the owner of course.
chicken Marsala and the filet Mignon are excellent...that's right I said the steak!!! – I came here to meet one of the owners and have a bit of Italian-American style. I was totally surprised to discover that this place also could create an atmosphere and prepare a meal not outdone by many in the city.
Their filet mignon is one of the best I've ever had and that comes from someone who has frequented many good steakhouses. It is prepared with a Bearnaise sauce and comes with Asparagus and I always, always get the Risotto as a special treat.
The service is top notch and I recommend sitting at the bar sometime to be entertained by John who usually brings my dinner as well as providing me with stimulating conversation.
Dominic is an excellent host and Nico Santucci has a burgeoning nugget of gold here in the desert.
The Best Italian food in Vegas – Everything was great about our visit to Capo's I recommend you make a reservation. Our table was ready as soon as we arrived, they have a great wine list with reasonable prices, the customer services could not ask for better service and the food is the Best I have had in Vegas, the experience was great can't wait to go back.
Fantastic Place to Eat – We went to this restaurant after so many people talked about the food and the live entertainment. I must say that we were NOT disappointed-the food was excellent (we ate the lasagna), and the singer Peppe Merolla was fantastic. This is the HOTTEST spot to go in Las Vegas. I would highly recommend it to ANYONE.
This shadowy Italian hideaway in suburban Las Vegas has a growing following attracted to its candlelit atmosphere – In Short
In 2004, brothers Dominic and Nico Santucci moved their family's eatery (established in 1964) from Chicago to Las Vegas. Themed after the speakeasies of Prohibition times, only the candles on the tables break the dining room's darkness. Curtained booths and an upstairs getaway for drinks and cigars create an intimate atmosphere. The Southern Italian cuisine includes signature dishes named after famous mobsters, such as the Tortellini Trafficante and Spilotro Spiedini. The lasagna is a house favorite.
Find this place, you'll love it! – The ambience, service and food is fantastic. Peppe is the houce singer and he is wonderful to listen to, the 'capo' also has a beautiful voice. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time though because you can stay for 2 hours easily and not realize it.
The Real Deal – Fantastic setting, authentic Italian atmosphere. Very friendly people that make you feel welcomed and at home. The food is, without question, absolutely the best you can get....full of flavor and lots of it! Great place for a romantic dinner or just to be with friends. Get a booth if you can. This is a true Italian experience, just like home!
