  • "This place is off the chain, food wise, entertainment wise & service wise! Can't wait to return!!"

  • "Our first time in here, loved the ambience, being personally greeted by the owner, the service and the quality of the food. Moderately priced, you get what you pay for. Our party of 4 spent $200, without tip. We did order wine. Will be back. I can understand why this is a popular spot, can't understand why it took me so long to visit it!"

  • "Capriccio ristorante stands out for its wonderful and accomodating service. We are frequently dining with either a very elderly person or a child, and in either instance the staff is warm and accomodating. Food is very good, price is right, a place known for its recurring clientele!"

Outstanding salad with cherry sauce and feta.......Delicious Amorone Masi wine, hot rolls with caponata...and best of all...for dessert...tartufo. Tartufo is hard to find in any restaurant but this restaurant has it!!! Thank Goodness as it is my favorite. Jason was our perfect host and server. Wish I lived closer. I will be back!!!"

  • "Had a great dinner that was fresh and delicious. The fish was lite and flaky with a cream sauce on a bed of kale that all complimented each other. The waiter was professional and the service was good. Very Italian atmosphere, very fun and lively!"

  • "I haven't been to Capriccio's in over 20 years. Wow, what a surprise I had. The singer and musicians were fantastic singing old-time Italian songs. Brought back many childhood memories. The food was out of this world. The wait staff was extraordinary. We had 7:30 reservations and didn't leave until 10:30. No one rushed us and it was a lovely night with old friends. Will definitely not wait another 20 years to go back. Martin was our waiter and he was the best. Would recommend this restaurant highly."

  • "My wife and I live in Pembroke Pines and were looking for good Italian. Capriccio was great in terms of food quality and flavor with excellent service. It is in a small shopping center and not glamorous in the least. Staff is very friendly. Only issue was the loud live music consisting of a violin-piano duo. If you make a reservation make sure you request a table as far away from the piano as possible because it is obnoxiously loud."

    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "IF ONLY THE THE ACOUSTICS ABSORBED THE NOISE. WHICH IS VERY LOUD. IT DETRACTS FROM THE AMBIANCE AND ROMANTIC SETTING, AND WE WEREN'T NEAR THE BAR OR PRIVATE PARTY ROOM. JUST THE NOISE FROM THE OTHER TABLES WAS A DISTRACTION. A SHAME BECAUSE THE FOOD, SERVICE, ATTENTION TO DETAIL, THE AMBIANCE ARE VERY IMPRESSIVE."

  • "We went for my husband's birthday and invited another couple. It was my 3rd visit to Capriccio's - our friends' first visit and they were as thrilled with the entire evening as we always are. It was an exceptional dining experience. The food is always top notch. The steak orders were perfectly made - crisp on the outsides and just as ordered inside (Pittsburg). My pasta with eggplant was heavenly and my friend's pasta and shrimp (huge ones) was wonderful. The atmosphere is friendly, the service just right as needed without anyone's hovering over us. It was Saturday night with lovely music and even dancing. When I was there Wednesday night there was just a piano player serving up beautiful music. Capriccio's has been a great find for us!"

  • "Our experience started off on a bad note. We were actually leaving, when the owner came out to get us. We explained how the waiter was treating us with disdain and how we never got to speak with the manager after waiting to speak with her for several minutes... He reassured us and from that moment on our evening was excellent. Food was excellent as well. I will continue to visit Capriccios as long as he is a part of the business."

  • "Great food - music a little too loud - hard to talk"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The food was so good, it literally took me 15 minutes to decide what to eat bc the choices all looked amazing! When my husband and I got our food we were not disappointed. However, what was disappointing was the entertainment. There was a beautiful grande piano and live entertainment, there was a violinist too, but there was also canned background music for the live musicians to accompany . And it was on so loud the waiter couldn't hear my order. If they canned the canned part of the music and just kept the live entertainment I would have no complaints at all."

  • "Took my fiancée to dinner to celebrate our 2 year dating anniversary. Our waiter, Jason was attentive and eager to please. Food from appetizer to dessert was absolutely delicious. I had the rack of lamb while my fiancée had the pork chops, both mouthwatering and full of flavor! Needless to say, we were impressed with both the service and the food. Nice music in the background makes this a great place to take that special someone! Will definitely go again!"

  • "The food was very good, but it went a little awry when my entree arrived. I ordered the special "crab ravioli" with a side of spinach. The waiter served me the ravioli with a Bon Appetite and I asked about the side of spinach and he told me it was coming right out. I took a bite of the ravioli, it was delicious but no crab to be found! It was stuffed with spinach and ricotta. The waiter returned with the spinach and I told him I thought the order was wrong but he insisted that it was the crab ravioli. I ate it anyway because it really was very good but this was not what I ordered. The only other issue was it took forever to get the check!"

  • "Terrific night with two other couples. The food was great and the service was better. The staff was very helpful and accomodating. I had been here before but it was even better than I remembered. Our entire party was pleased with night and after dinner we went to the bar to enjoy the one man band and do a bit of dancing. A thoroughly enjoyable evening. I will definitely go there again... soon."

  • "A touch of luxury in the South Florida blandness. Well executed Italian specialties and competent, friendly service. A good choice for celebrations and commemorations. Fully priced but by no means over priced for the quality and service. http://www.capriccios.net/ Family Event: http://youtu.be/PAUaWt4lopM"

  • "Food was outstanding, had lasagna and lobster ravioli. Good family, traditional vibe in the restaurant. Server left a bit to be desired, but there was a busser that actually worked and made sure we were taken care of. Overall, a great experience. If you are looking for good italian food with not a lot of flash (although the live musician was nice) I would encourage you to go check this place out."
