A word from Capriccio
Luxurious Capriccio, carved out of the cellars of a Financial District landmark, is located along the Providence Riverwalk at the corner of Dyer & Pine Streets. It has long been the capital city’s renowned mecca for candlelight sophistication and black tie service “where locals and out-of-towners are deliciously pampered.” Creative continental cuisine with a northern Italian and Mediterranean accent has earned it over 35 awards for fine dining and wines. Signature dishes include imported Dover sole, Maine lobster, prime aged steaks, native seafood, housemade pastas, and flambeed desserts. Recipient of the Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence, its elegant lounge boasts one of America’s great Cognac collections. Open weekdays for lunch, daily for dinner. Complimentary valet parking.

Diner Reviews
  • "Capriccios is the Grande Dame of Providence with food and service that are unequaled in New England. If you want a New York dining experience come to Capriccios for the best Dover sole and Steak Diane. Get Geno as your waiter!!"

  • "Dinner was fantastic. Great appetizer specials and spectacular duck ragout over slightly over cooked pappardelle. As always the service was top notch."

  • "Excellent traditional style food with great service. The buratta special appetizer was excellent as was the tuna entree special. The marinara on my linguini side was delicious. The waiter was exceptionally good, splitting and serving our appetizers on individual plates amongst the six in our party. I would highly recommend this superb restaurant which has remained a landmark for decades here in Providence."

  • "This was our second visit and we were once again delighted with the food, service and cozy atmosphere. A very elegant place to dine out and enjoy a relaxing evening with exquisite food and service. We look forward to coming back again, next time we are in the area."

  • "Birthday dinner seated right at the reservation time. Appreciated the complementary valet parking. Nice lively crowd. Great dinner menu and wine list, although hard to order cocktails. Table service needs some attention. Seemed rushed and impatient. Food was great."

  • "It has been nearly 20 years since I last dined here and I'm sorry I waited so long (but I can blame Providence for its abundance of fine dining establishments!) The food was incredible....notably a sushi grade tuna I had as an appetizer and the Scottish salmon was superb. Next time I'll leave room for desert."

  • "I always enjoy capriccio's I have had times that the food wasn't up to par however every time I have gone and ordered one of the specials it has been top notch. The service is what you would expect of a restaurant of this caliber. This is generally not a place to grab dinner and run, they make dinner a event."

  • "My fiance and I dined at cappricios for the first time for his birthday. We had the lobster bisque which was yummy and a large portion, fried calamari which was a little tough, and Cesar salad which was amazing. Our server was really nice and knowledgeable about the menu and other restaurants in the area. He was attentive but not overwhelming. Our main courses were delicious. My fiance had a sirloin cooked to perfection and I had risotto with marsala beef chunks. When we arrived we were sat promptly, but they never asks if we had reservations which I thought was strange. Overall a very nice experience and I would return"

  • "As impressive as the table side service and presentation may be, the food was cold when placed on the table. We ordered the rack of lamb and after a very hurried presentation by an elderly gentleman (who I understand is iconic to the restaurant), the meal was plated. To say the meat was tepid would be an overstatement. Why bother with the glitz and glamor if the end result is mediocre? The leftovers reheated at home were much more enjoyable."

  • "Great food, decent portions depending on what you get. Not overly expensive compared to some others in providence, but sure tastes like the cream of the crop. Can't go wrong with Capriccios."

  • "Loved everything about it! From the special pre-theatre pricing, to the ambiance, to the colorful wait staff....and who could ignore the food. Some of the best tasting food I've had in years. Reminded me of a scene out of Goodfellas or the Godfather!"

  • "What a great restaurant. The service is OUTSTANDING. Although a bit pricey, you get what you pay for, and I definitely don't feel cheated. Only restaurant I know of that has caviar AND Beef Wellington on the menu, and they were both great!"

  • "I am a tee shirt and jeans kind of guy, every day. But, this was supposed to be different kind of dinner (and restaurant), nice upscale romantic night out for the wife's birthday. I was very well dressed as I thought i should be for the type of place we were at but after looking around here i am uncomfortable in my attire (suit was a little tight) and I look around and people are dress like they are at the gym, or fast food restaurant. I think they have been letting to many people in that don't belong, Loud, obnoxious, and rude people were the main stay of the customers $260.00 for dinner I don't want to see people in jeans or gym clothes type apparel."

  • "My dinner was very good however my wife's grouper came uncooked in in the middle. They were very attentive to correcting the situation. They actually remade the dish and it came back nicely cooked and very tasty."

  • "We have gone to cappricios several times and as the food, atmosphere, and service are always exceptional, this is the one time the service was lacking. We will continue to go there to dine however would request a different server."

  • "I first dined at Capriccio when I was impressing my high-school girlfriends! It worked to impress then...It works to impress (my Wife) now! This restaurant is located in the lower level of a historic downtown Providence building, just across from the river. Valet is alert and courteous. The matre'd was right on point as is the wait-staff! Although the specials here are the way to go...beef wellington is a great staple (and trumps the White Horse Tavern). As for desert, "do it!" The cost is average for this level of product & service. You will be thrilled!"

  • "It was my wife's forty second birthday and I had made a special dessert request via online reservations. The request was not carried out. Additionally while waiting for our table, my wife and i had a drink at the bar. The staff was overwhelmed and understaffed. The bartender was serving drinks and entering the kitchen while serving food. We were never offered another beverage. Furthermore, our waiter was not a qualified waiter at a high end restaurant. He could not remember our meals and forgot to serve us a glass of wine that was requested 30 min ago. The food was excellent however the restaurant was poorly managed. For the price, your restaurant should always be prepared to deliver the highest level of service. We made a poor investment."

  • "I had a business luncheon at this restaurant which was perfect. The service was efficient, the food was superb, and the noise level low. I would definately recommend for a nice, professional setting to do business."

  • "We hadn't been to Capriccio's for "years", but decided to go during Restaurant Week. We all had a WONDERFUL, relaxing time, talking, catching up and enjoy scrumptious food and wine. We will go back again!"

  • "A tied and true classic Italian Restaraunt in downtown Providence. The atmosphere is all old world charm and classic Italian. The food....well don't even get me started...I wanted everything. Trust me, you just can't go wrong."

  • "Capriccio's used to be my favorite restaurant, however, the last two times we went the service has gone way down hill, the portions are smaller and the prices are as high as ever!!"

  • "Bob S, our server, went through the special and restaurant week menu with great energy and bravado, it was quite the show. Great service, food came out fast and trouble free. Great atmosphere , other diners were talkative and enjoying themselves. Valet was a plus."

  • "Been there four times but won't go back. Staff and waiters make you feel as though you're an imposition. I like to feel welcome where I dine. The coat check lady doesn't speak beachside she's on the phone and the maître de looks at you like you have the wrong restaurant. Too many great restaurants in Providence to have to deal with rudeness."

  • "A wonderful dining experience! Although, we have lived in RI all of our lives, we had never dined here. We came because of Providence Restaurant Week, and we were so glad we did. The carpaccio was outstanding as were our dinner entrees. The service was excellent. It was a memorable evening."
    Dined on 1/16/2014
  • "When I made my reservation on OpenTable for Capriccio's, the only available time slot was 5:00 PM. I made the reservation because it was the only one available. When my husband and I got to the restaurant at 5:00 PM, we were the ONLY patrons in the main dining room areas. I asked our waiter why no one else was there, and he said there were no other reservations until 6:00 PM. We would have much rather made a 5:30 PM or 6:00 PM reservation because 5:00 PM was way too early for us. I'm wondering why 5:00 PM was the only option, when the later options were definitely available. In the future, I will call the restaurant directly to make a reservation rather than use OpenTable."

  • "The service was attentive, yet allowed privacy. The mussels appetizer in white broth was delicious, & the 2 crostini mopped it all up. The veal was tender & cooked to perfection. The tiramisu was a sweet ending to a wonderful meal."

Definitely a destination restaurant as we build a weekend around it. Beautiful ambience, excellent service, and delicious food. Go and enjoy!"

  • "Celebrated with a friend for her birthday and was not disappointed! Went for lunch and the valet parking is great to get in and out without worrying about parking in the city. The food was delicious and there was a great selection. The service was very good and we weren't rushed which was a treat in itself. Great place!"
