    Menu was great. Food too. But the decor, 80's and the music, even earlier. Not much to say. Didn't think the owner/greeter was very friendly. Needs a complete make over in attitude and look.

    It was my girlfriends birthday and I made a special request to have flowers and lit candles placed on the table prior to our arrival. Not only did they comply, they subsequently put us both in the most romantic corner table which provided us with a beautiful view of what was truly an incredible atmosphere. Service was not only fantastic but they were quite comical as well (I wasnt even drinking and still found them hysterical) the food was fantastic and did I mention they brought her out a tiramisu dessert and sang happy birthday? Usually you expect to pay an arm and a leg for the dinner we received, the pricing was equally as surprising as everything else. Recommend this place for anyone, especially on romantic evenings. A+ we'll be back

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!
