Pretty bold statement but,,, I had dinner at Capri restaurant a couple of w/e's ago after reading the recent Allison Cook review. I don't always agree with her picks, but wow,, she was right on with the favorable comments posted about this restaurant.. The lasagna I was not loaded with meat in fact only a hint could I taste.. The real "meat "of the dish can be found in the heavenly ricotta and mozzarella layered between the tender noodles.. The tomato sauce was superb,, just like my Mother made! My GF's Gnocchi was a true eye opener... A creamy blend of 4 cheeses that meld together to create on the the most decadently rich dishes i've ever tasted.. It was a two Lipitor night for me!!
I had work in the Woodlands today and decided to stop for lunch... I ordered the eggplant parm.. A generous portion/mound was placed in front of me and I never looked up except,,, I decided to take a chicken parm to go and have for dinner this eve.. OMG,, hit after hit... I'm hooked,,, this little out of the way restaurant is my favorite for an authentic Italian meal.. The family style hospitality and service is terrific and the prices very affordable.. If you looking for Da Marco here,, you'll not find it. Nothing formal,, the Capri white table clothes catch the melted candle wax that drips from the bottle when lit at night.. This is a Mom and Pop place you might find in any Italian section of NYC that serve up simple and unforgettable dishes that leaves a lingering impression.. Foodies,,, this is a must visit!! Take your navigation system,, its not the easiest to find tho its of the feeder on 45 near rayford.... Enjoy!
