Isle of Capri
Located in the small town of Krebs, which is known as Oklahoma's Little Italy, Isle of Capri has been an Italian favorite of locals and travellers since its opening in 1950. The building's exterior resembles a house, and the cozy feeling continues inside in the multiple dining areas, including a large banquet room, patio dining and full bar.
Dominic Anthony Giacomo, who opened Isle of Capri, was a first generation American whose parents immigrated from Italy. After completing a tour in the Navy, Giacomo built the Isle of Capri and began serving homemade ravioli, spaghetti and meatballs, and steak, chicken and lamb fries entrees. Each meal is preceded by an order of fresh salad, garlic bread and homemade French-fries. Isle of Capri also serves the famous Choc beer, which is still produced in Krebs today.
