Last night on FOX’s Kitchen Nightmares we watched as Chef Gordon Ramsay visited The Capri, in Eagle Rock, CA. Now, the once disgusting Italian eatery is getting rave reviews from customers. Keep reading for more details!
Kitchen Nightmares took us to The Capri Italian Restaurant last night on the show in what was one of the best turnarounds we have seen in a long time. But as you probably already know, the actual episode was taped well before last night. Since the relaunch by Gordon Ramsay and the show, The Capri is now getting rave reviews by its customers and most people recommend dining there. So what are people saying? One reviewer says “A wonderful neighborhood spot. Another reviewer compares it to Auntie Ems nearby–Capri out does the pretentious and over priced Auntie Ems in my book, and Capri has much more comfortable seating. The new pizzas are fabulous: light and full of flavor which seems counter intuitive but it’s true. Their tomato sauce is a depth charge of flavor for their delicious spaghetti and meatballs or lasagna. Almost bathed in the brownie it was so warm and good. Good luck to these guys, they deserve a rousing success with their redo.”
Another patron, noticed Gordon’s article in the news that they were doing an overhaul and she decided to give it a try and this is what she had to say “We were absolutely blown away at the taste and presentation of Authentic Italian recipes, and the hospitality of all the staff. I started out with a Spinach salad with encrusted Walnuts, blueberries, gorgonzola cheese, with Olive Oil. Fantastic! Next was the baked Lasagna which was a some of the best Lasagna I have ever had. You know great Italian by its sauce and meatballs, these guys have mastered both.” Now, there are a few bad reviews, mostly of folks who simply liked the old menu, but by far the rave reviews outnumber the bad, so if you are looking for a good place to eat in the area, why not give this place a try!
