From 2013:
At Capers & Lemons, dishes such as spaghetti pomodoro and rigatoni Bolognese are solid favorites. But we go for combinations like homemade shrimp ravioli in sherry-tomato cream with spring peas and the pappardelle with braised pork and baby arugula in crushed tomatoes. Unique and delicious.

From 2012:
Order a dish of pasta made by the chef’s caring hands at Capers & Lemons. Standouts
include butternut-filled pansotti with green peas and prosciutto and classic lasagna.

The classic tiramisu at Capers & Lemons Italian Restaurant and Market is fluffy and
light, not soggy with espresso like many of its kind. Consider the mascarpone whipped

From 2009:
The water feature made of wine bottles at the hostess station is your first clue that Capers and Lemons is different. Next you’ll notice the servers’ black T-shirts, each labeled with a different Italian wine, such as Prosecco. Woodstone pizzas and starters such as fig flat bread place C&L firmly on the fore of dining trends. But other food is classic: zesty cioppino, tender braciole and veal saltimbocca. On your way out, grab some jars of sauce and specialty food in the adjoining to-go shop. Critic Lise Monty is a big fan.
