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.

    While the meal was good, I was expecting exceptional. The scallops ordinarily are super tender and fresh. This time they were tough and the usual Capriccio taste was not there. This would not prevent me from going back because everything else was fabulous and I've been there often enough to know that this had to be just an off night.

    We have been frequenting Capricco's for many years and have been pleased with their consistantly good food and service. We went to celebrate a birthday and was a little disappointed. One of the dishes , prepared tableside, was not up to par as Gino was preparing two dishes at the same time and the patron at the other table had specific dietary requests that required Gino to alter his cooking method. Rather than prepare the dish twice, he just threw in the last ingredient at the end. Not professional. Last, I had called ahead asking for a birthday cake and candle. Nothing came. Glad there are other choices for fine dining in Providence... it's time to give Capricco's a rest.

    Me and my fiance went here for our ten year anniversary. It was outstanding! The entire night we didnt have to open a door, pull out a chair, pour a drink. The service was great! The filet mignon was the best we have ever had! The waiter was very knowelgable and nice! Everyone that works there was ery nice from our waiter to the coat check woman to the valet men. We will definately be going back!

    The food was delicious. Service a bit slow, although they were slammed. My boyfriend ordered the lobster. It came stuffed with scallops and shrimp and very little lobster meat, and was charged $60. We felt that was a bit overpriced.

    As it should be, Capriccio delivers! What a fantastic dinner. It's the good old school restaurant that does not skip a beat. Servers are top notch, food was fresh and delicious, table side flambé always a crown pleaser and delicious. It definitely exceeded my expectations, I expected it might be outdated with the classic menu etc. but, no way, they really still have it! Place was hopping too, so, they are definitely doing something right. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. It is not just "dinner" it is a dining experience, super one at that.

  • Birthday celebration
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 10/25/2014
    Proximity of tables hindered our romantic 50th birthday celebration - being seated on top of a large party and having to listen to their conversations all evening. The food was standard: good, but not exactly memorable. Wine list is extensive but heavily weighted on high price selections (wished there had been more affordable, delicious options). Loved the atmosphere of the waiters in tuxes. The one shining moment of the evening was having a flambe dessert of cherries jubilee prepared tableside by ENZO - who was fabulous!

    I have been trying to get to this restaurant for some time now and it was well worth the wait! The restaurant is decorated very beautifully. Especially right now with pumpkins and signs of the fall season. I ordered the Scottish Salmon and it was cooked perfectly. I order Salmon every time I eat out and this dish was one of the best. The waitstaff was very knowledgeable about the items on the menu and extremely pleasant. Can't wait to get there again soon.

    Great food raised the score after a disappointing impression of a restaurant with an excellent reputation for many years. From the valet who was to engrossed in talking to friends than coming to get the car, to waiters talking to a friend at the bar while waiting for drinks to be made, to a bar tender who had no sign of an engaging personality, to generally unfriendly waiters, the service was a negative "wow." I kept thinking of how they needed someone to come in and shake up the status quo. A pity.

    We have been here twice for dinner. The food is amazing and the wine selection is good. The waiters always have excellent recommendations, are willing to make alterations for food choices and are very knowledgeable about the wine. We have been recommended two very good bottles, one more expensive than the other, and have never been disappointed. We are looking forward to our next visit!

    Very disappointed . Anniversary dinner-noted the occasion when I made the reservation . seated at a tiny table, in the corner near large table of 8. they were notorious noisy but we felt totally neglected by waitstaff. Have had better waiters at Applebee's . Did not ask how things were, no ground pepper or grated cheese offered, not an iota of charm in his service. I stupidly took his suggestion and ordered the special lamb shank. Hubby got veal parm. My was tasteless . Hubby's fine but small portion. They never acknowledged our anniversary . Paid a huge price for a mediocre meal and indifferent service. Capriccio was so disappointing as it was noted to be romantic venue but will never go back nor recommend it.

    I've been to Capriccio several times. It's always outstanding! There are several good restaurants in Providence but I have to say... Capriccio is the best. From the valets to the servers, decor is comfortable and very nice, dinners are outstanding, great wine list. Mixed drinks are perfect. I save this place for special occasions but I really should go more often. Capriccio is the standard by which the others are judged. No room for improvement. Not cheap but a good value for the money. If you want to impress... this is the place to go.

    Dined on 9/10/2014
    Our waiter rushed though the specials barely returned to the table to ask if we were enjoying our meal and forget about refilling our glasses with our $100+ bottle of wine. The only enjoyable part of the evening was the food. It was delicious but in no way made up for the atmosphere our waiter created. Our waiter was condescending, abrupt and his behavior was completely unacceptable. Maybe our waiter thought that since we were two women dining together he didn’t have to put in any effort. Clearly we know he could since we both witnessed him showering the nearby tables with attention.

    Capriccio's is by far the best fine dining restaurant in Providence. The menu is authentic and diverse with exceptional accouterments . The Flambe is classic and unrivaled. We bring out of town guests here and they instantly know why Providence is a little known gem for culture and style. The staff is truly professional, service is 2nd to none and the Captain Steve is one of a kind and remarkable.
