We took an Uber here after finding all of downtown Italian restaurants were booked for dinner. Definitely worth the short drive. Great character, friendly service, and most importantly great food! So happy!!

Grrreat Italian restaurant. We happened on this place quite by accident, but a lucky find it was. Nice ambience to the place, it was quite busy, but the food and service was excellent. We split a large combo plate of 3 of their signature pasta dishes. It was a large enough portion for two hungry guys. The star was the... More

The food is good, the atmosphere isn't. Its a huge barn of a place thats feels anything but intimate. when you think of italian place you usually also think of it being romantic. surprise. overpriced

Capparelli's is USUALLY very good. But you can sometimes catch them on off days. I've had some of the best Italian food in town, and have also waited an hour to get the wrong food. So role the dice and take your chances, I suppose!

We've been on vacation for a week and this was the most delicious food at the cheapest price by far. We enjoyed fried ravioli, a small pizza, an pasta dish and a free kids meal (every Monday and Wednesday) all for $36. Winner for sure! The desert looked amazing, but we were to full.

Love to come here for the atmosphere (but not upstairs). The food is good, but not exceptional. The house salad that comes with most meals is a favorite (without the onions) with house dressing. Their pizzas are good and so is the garlic bread served with most meals. Pasta dishes are okay - meatballs are good.

Capparelli's on Main has a neighborhood ambiance, and pleasant atmosphere. Unfortunately the food has not been so good on recent visits. It is as though the salad dressing recipe has changed, and there was only one slim piece of red onion to spice up the salad. The garlic bread was not hot, and had no garlic on it. It also... More

This restaurant is a staple in San Antonio and one of my absolute favorite dining locations. The food is amazing and has an array of classic Italian dishes; all of which are made fresh on a daily basis! You can't go wrong with the classic Lasagna, Eggplant, or Meatballs. The house made sauce is superb! The staff is courteous, professional,... More
