Fresh and Flavorful!

I prefer freshly prepared food – made with love and lots of flavor! Bring me some heat and/or some spice. Deep fried? Maybe occasionally, but mostly not.


Capri Pizza & Restaurant

 8340 W Beloit Rd
Milwaukee, WI

Very good Italian!

I had not previously dined at the old Capri – this review is for Capri di Nuovo. I had heard lots of good things about the “old” Capri but didn’t get to try them before they closed. I finally decided to order some takeout about a month ago and was not disappointed. I ordered lasagna (which comes with garlic bread,) and cannoli’s for desert. The lasagna was super cheesy and saucy. The sauce was not quite as spicy as I would prefer (definitely could benefit from more garlic and herbs) and had sort of a sweet taste, but it grew on me after a few bites. The buttery garlic bread was perfect. Don’t think I’ve had a better cannoli – ever!! Super Yummy! I will definitely be returning for more. I believe they recently instituted a delivery service so if you live in the area, be sure to give them a try. I know they were also well know for their pizza. Hoping to give that a try on my next outing to “the new” Capri.
