General Info:
Maria and Vincenzo Lamanna established the Isle of Capri in the spring of 1955. After many, many years in business you still feel the warm and family friendly atmosphere you felt in the beginning. Maria and Vincenzo came to the United States from Calabria in 1937 and began their venture, a gourmet delicatessen located on East 59th Street called Lamanna Importers , in the late 1940s. Together with Gloria and Jane, they worked hard and took pride in selling imported delicacies. In 1955, they decided to take on another venture, and started the Isle of Capri Restaurant along with a partner from Capri, and this is where the name comes from. After a few months, Vincenzo assumed sole ownership of the restaurant. With the passing of Vincenzo in 1990 and Mamma in 1993, the tradition still continues with their daughters and co-owners, Gloria and Jane.

Allright place

It's an allright place. The food quite ok and the staff is nice. Not a top place, but certainly not far from it.

Great Food! Great Ambience! Great Service!

I've been to Isle of Capri several times since discovering it in May. The food here is incredible. Their staff is always polite and extremely professional. I, personally, love the greeting Jane (the owner) gives to each and every client. She's always sure to walk by every table and engage her patrons. Isle of Capri is a MUST in NYC.

Excellent Evening Out

My husband and I celebrated out 10-year anniversary here last weekend and had a fabulous evening. The wine was reasonably priced as was the splendid food. We loved the choices and devoured everthing on our plates. The profiteroles are to die for, and a must to end the meal. Ciao Bella!

Delicious

Isle of Capri was a very nice surprise. I've walked past it dozens of times but finally went in a few weeks ago. Excellent and attentive service throughout the meal and the food was prepared very nicely. Everything we had was delicious. I'd definitely return.

Great service; Very friendly atmosphere; great Veal and Eggplant Parmigiana

You are greeted with a friendly smile and it only gets better from there. The service is attentive and the wait staff knows how to pace the meal. The food is very tasty and worth the price.

Excellent, authentic Italian restaurant!

We tried Isle of Capri at the suggestion of a friend. It was fantastic! It is lovely inside, the staff is attentive, and the food is wonderfully prepared - all at a very reasonable price. The calamari appetizer, warm vegetable salad, and parmesan asparagus dishes were excellent. I ordered the chicken marsala - it was the best I've had! The complimentary bruschetta and cookies only added to the already wonderful d... view more

Great fresh pasta

Went with my Aunt for lunch. Atmosphere was confortable and pretty. Service, excellent.\r We ordered simple pasta primavera, asked for it on homemade pasta which wasn't on the menu. No problem they made it with green and white homemade noodles. The veggies were the perfect combination, lightly sauced, tasty and excellent.\r I will go back to try more , lovely place.....

ONE OF NY'S BEST ITALIAN RESTAURANT

I TOOK MY BOYFRIEND HERE FOR HIS BIRTHDAY AND WE WERE SEATED AT A CORNER TABLE IN LIKE A PRIVATE ROOM BY A WINDOW, IT WAS VERY ROMANTIC AND THE FOOD AND THE SERVICE WAS OUTSTANDING. THE WAITERS WERE VERY ATTENTIVE AND FRIENDLY. I ALSO RECOMMEND THAT U DON'T LEAVE WITHOUT HAVING A PIECE OF TIRAMISU,IT IS THE BEST I'VE EVER TASTED! I CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK.
