We arrived with a lovely bottle in hand and were told they did not nor had they offered BYOB service. I was surprised and said that NY Mag, Yelp and other sites claimed they did. The server gave a pause and said the restaurant's website said there was no BYOB. Actually, they have no website. We left which was too bad, since the ambiance was cozy and the menu promising. But a bad start spoiled our enthusiasm. We had a lovely meal elsewhere. Ratings are required before this post can be published, therefore please disregard them as we actually didn't dine there.

I've eaten here several times and have never had a bad meal. The staff is very attentive, food is amazing, great prices. Only drawback is that it's small.
Great for lunch!

What a cute and unexpected treat! I had time to grab a quick lunch, and I chose one of the daily specials (tomato, basil, red onion salad). They substituted delicious ricotta cheese for the mozzarella that was supposed to come with the salad and it was delicious - very fresh! The pastas looked great too, next time... The staff are super friendly and helpful, I'll definitely be going back.

I LOVE IT HERE! Best pasta I've had outside of Italy by far! So fresh!
I love Capri Caffe

My favourite lunch spot, too bad is becoming so popular ... The pasta is the best you can find in New York, just a few tables so avoid the most crowded times.
Best mozzarella ever
By bolesen on 11/3/2011
I come all the time for dinner. The staff is very nice and the pasta is great. I love the Linguine Grotta Azzurra because I love lemon and start every meal with the tomato salad with the homemade mozzarella - trust me it is to die for... Wine selection not too great, but that is more than made up for in atmosphere and all the extras. You always get a fruit treat before you leave which is a nice touch. The decor would probably have been better in Capri than New York, but it is nice and clean. I have really never had a bad meal there.
