Who doesn't love Italian comfort food?
If you are feeling down or just in the mood for a carb overload, nothing does it quite like a big bowl of spaghetti or fettuccine alfredo.
But not everyone can get it just right. That is why it is best to go to the pros. That would be Capri's Italian Restaurant. Capri's has been open since 1944, and is located in Easley, SC.
This family owned restaurant had a unique start as one of South Carolina's first Italian restaurants; started because "Yankee" soldiers during World War II, who were stationed at the Greenville Army Air Base, we're searching for good Italian food.
Mama Capri started making pizzas in her kitchen, and after the war this turned in to a full blown restaurant that has grown and flourished.
Capris is classy, fine dining but with an atmosphere and personality that makes you feel like family. I would make the comparison of sophisticated candlelight dinner meets "my big fat Greek wedding" in the best possible way.
I have been there several times, and tried the lasagna, alfredo, and spaghetti. All of it was equally delicious. They also have entrees like: chicken parmesan, eggplant marinara, and baked manicotti.
On a very important side note: they also serve chocolate chip pizza!
The service is very good. The atmosphere is lovely and tranquil, yet definitely family friendly.
I rate this as a great date night option or family outing.
Check it out!
