Capriccios is the best Italian
Capriccios is the best Italian food in the area! The service is always outstanding, very professional and courteous. My family can be difficult in restaurants (vegetarians, lactose intolerance, etc.) and they always make every accommodation with a smile. I would recommend it to anyone! Wonderful restaurant!

We unexpectedly had reservations
We unexpectedly had reservations during restaurant week, which we did not know about since we were visiting. The special menu was very enticing and we ended up ordering off that. The food was delicious and plentiful, but we felt a little rushed. Wait staff was pleasant and helpful and dinner was delicious. Only negative was feeling like we were rushed.

fantastic, as always. I'm reluctant to praise too highly, as don't want to attract TOO many people and make it difficult to get a reservation!

We felt the menu was quite
We felt the menu was quite limited but what we ate was great... scallop special cooked very well. The beet salad was subtle; not as good as at neighboring competing restaurants the Spaghetti with fruta-di-mare was excellent. The server forgot bread, we had to ask 3 times after she said, "I'll bring over some fresh bread" and when she cleared the salad plates she took the used silverware and didn't return with replacements. It's very loud; not great acoustically for conversation, decor is OK, nothing special but the (dusty) blown glass feature.

We had a wonderful dinner, the best dinner out in Saratoga in a long time! Appetizers ( beans and greens, eggplant dish ) were a tasty start followed by terrific entrees. (Fennel and leek ravioli - exquisite and perfectly cooked halibut with artful plating of veggies )
Wait staff was warm, welcoming and just the right amount of attentive.
This may sound overly enthusiastic but do know that the comments are sincere!

Delicious Mother's Day meal
We really enjoyed our meal. My mom, a tiny person who eats like a bird, polished off her whole giant serving of spaghetti, she enjoyed it so much. My request for a vegetarian, gluten free, meal was smoothly (and deliciously) accommodated. All around lovely meal and comfortable, attentive service.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice for dinner out as a treat
Staff was very helpful letting the two if us order as we wished
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have a favorite dish & it never disappoints: the Ragu Napoliiano. It is so good we have yet to try many others but this time went for the special- halibut with tomato,lemon on a baby chard bed and asparagus, potato,...don't know how they did it; just delicious. This is why we keep coming back.
5/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delicious as always
We have never been disappointed at Capriccio Saratoga. Each time we go, we love our meals and the service. The people are friendly and informed about the menu. My husband's only wish is that they would have beer on tap, but he seems to survive in spite of this. I love that they use Saratoga Olive Oil from another local business in town. Everyone is always happy when we dine here.

As good as the original in Albany
We were a party of 8, The 3 who ordered the rissoto all thought it was exceptional. Fish (?) entree was reported to be excellent as was the chicken and ravioli entrees. This was our first time to the Saratoga location but we definately will return.
5/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a favorite
Very friendly staff, great food and killer cocktails.
5/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Italian food
Both our pasta dishes were excellent. The rustic meat sauce is outstanding. I was able to customize my pasta dish without comment or pushback. The charcuterie is generous and delicious. The only off-note was that our glasses of Prosecco was poured from splits, some of which had clearly been open for a while. While the red wine list is limited, we found a very nice bottle, which complemented the pasta well.
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our new favorite restaurant!
Consistently great food, attentive service............I keep writing good things because we keep having good experiences! Fish of the day was an interesting and delicious baby octopus "stew" ( my word ). It was served with clams, mussels, fresh shrimp, potatoes and sides of veggies and polenta. The beans and greens are perfectly garlicky and yummy! SR

The beet salad and eggplant
The beet salad and eggplant parm were wonderful as were the two pizzas we got. The service was prompt and no pressure to hurry up and turn tables. The menu was not tremedously diverse but the items on it were excellent.
6/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I live in the area and have been to Cafe Capriccio in Albany on a number of occasions. The food and the service is excellent. For the past three decades we traveled between our homes in Manhattan and upstate so we fell into the "familiar" restaurant patterns while living busy lives. We literally just found Capriccio Saratoga and to our delight the food was excellent. We will definitely put this restaurant on our short list while in Saratoga.
6/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
first time there, pleasant surprise
Didn't know what to expect as this was our first time there and we didn't know anyone who had dined there before. It was small, but there were outdoor tables and there didn't appear to be any bad tables inside. The service was prompt and our waiter, Carter, was amazingly patient and well versed on the menu items. Overall, I'd have to say this has been one of the best restaurants in Saratoga.

Went back the next night.
Went back the next night. Food was great. Service great
6/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful. Five of us raved over four different entrees. Kelly, our server, will own her own restaurant someday. It is 40 miles each way for us from our summer home- but we will be regulars! Every course was special through dessert.

A very special experience
Capriccio Saratoga was born 30 years after Cafe Capriccio in Albany New York. Jim Rua and his son Franco Rua create beautiful food that evokes the gardens and vineyards of Italy and Spain. To me, food is central to life. The food at this gem of a restaurant is colorful, fresh, vibrant, and delicious. It is a truly special place with a lot of expertise behind it, class, and joie de vivre inside! Also notable is the easy elegance of the place. Come dressed up or dressed down.

Food and service was excellent.
Food and service was excellent. Salad not included with entree and was a little pricy. Restaurant is small.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great experience with delicious food. The Saratoga restaurant is better located, serves better food and is in safe location unlike Albany restaurant.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Stopped in while in Saratoga for a bite. Didn't disappoint. We were seated right away at a great booth. Service was very good. Food was promptly served and for a Friday nite dinner things couldn't have been better. Will definitely be back.

My husband and I went for
My husband and I went for our 10 year anniversary. I ordered the stuffed eggplant and he ordered the pasta frutti de marr (sp?). He said it was the best seafood dish with pasta that he has had in a long time. Mine was also delicious!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a find!
My husband and I had a really great dinner here while we were visiting Saratoga. The whole ambience and the food was much nicer than I'd even hoped. Food was really fresh, well prepared and somewhat inventive. It was relaxed with a fun waitstaff. Wine choices were good and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.
8/7/2013 5:00:00 PM
Always a pleasure
We visit Saratoga every summer during the racing season and make it a point to dine at least once at Capriccio's. Great food and a nice variety of lighter and more substantial entrees. Service is always friendly and efficient.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
small or large
I have eaten at Capriccio's with a larger group of people and on occasions (their Easter menu was wonderful!) and this time
I ate with a friend of mine. We shared an appetizer and a pizza and the waiter couldn't have been more helpful or gracious.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love coming to Capriccio! The food and service are always over the top! Thanks much. (Pizza is the best in town.)
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Yes you should.
Food is delectable. Wait staff charming. Really cool drink list. A must.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I finally tried this local restaurant after walking by it for two year! The food was fantastic. Homemade mozzarella was perfect. Prices were fair and the wine selection, although limited, was nice. It's a bit off the main drag but it was still hoppin' with people and activity.
Wish we hadn't waited so long to try it! We'll be back.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a great time.
Capriccio Saratoga continues to be one of our favorite Saratoga Springs restaurants. Great atmosphere, great service and great food.
We enjoy the restaurant and staff and look forward to dining there.

If you want the best...............
If you are not sure were you want to have dinner and you want to just cut to the best - visit Capricco Saratoga. It will not dissappoint. Our friends Jim and Colleen have done many Chef's Table Events at Capriccio in Albany with great success and is an event beyond belief, and it just stands to reason that Capriccio Saratoga is so wonderful as well. Try it once, you'll be hooked!
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food, ambiance, service, menu variety..... all excellent!
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of Saratoga's best.
The food is consistently excellent, service is welcoming and prompt, with a setting that has the feel of downtown Saratoga at its best. This is really a very good restaurant.

Great food & excellent service... look forward to going back

Dinner with out of town friends
Had a wonderful dinner with three friends from out of town. We shared a number of appetizers (vegetable palte, charcuterie, caprese salad, beet salad) and entrees (Delmonico steak, pasta with ragu sauce, scallops and ravioli). All were good. Pasta with ragu sauce and scallops were excellent.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
just as good as the original
My husband and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary at Cafe Capriccio saratoga. We used to live in Albany and frequently ate inthe original cafe and the upstairs group family style venue. We loved the food and were so excited to find that they opened one in Toga! After moving to Clifton Park and getting a little older:) we appreciate downtown Saratoga much more and still look for great fresh food restaurants like Capriccio. It was lovely, cozy, and delicious.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice menu, attentive wait staff,food arrived on a timely basis. All 4 of us in my party enjoyed the dinners we had. Portions were just the right size.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
A WONDERFUL DINING EXPERIENCE! A GROUP OF 8, STAFF WAS WONDERFUL. WE ALL WERE HAPPY WITH OUR MEALS. THE STUFFED EGGPLANT WAS AWESOME, AND THE STEAK WAS COOKED PERFECTLY, PUTANESCA SAUCE AND PASTA WERE SO FLAVORFUL . THEY OFFERED A VARIETY OF DELICIOUS, AND HEALTHY SALAD CHOICES AS WELL. AND OF COURSE, THERE WAS AN EXCELLENT SELECTION OF WINES AT A REASONABLE PRICES. WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND CAPRICCIO'S IN SARATOGA.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
OVEN FIRED PIZZA SARATOGA
Pizza was very good. Great dough, very good pizza sauce. Used fresh mozzarella.
Salad was not worth the money, Just lettuces and a couple tomato pieces, Not worth $10.00 at all.
Olive oil for dipping bread was very good.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was outstanding and the service (Brittany) was even better.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very friendly and cozy spot with nice decor. Eggplant appetizer.is worth the trip!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dined here last friday. The cocktails were great. Best crust on a thin crust pizza I have found in Saratoga.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyable night, fantastic food
My girlfriend and I decided to check out Capriccio Saratoga to celebrate an anniversary. We ordered a salad and a pasta dish off of the specials list, and got a pizza with olives, artichokes, and prosciutto. To drink we ordered 2 dry red wines, about $8/apiece (most bottles are between $25 and $40). Everything we ate was perfectly prepared. No flaws in cooking, preparation, or service. Each dish was intelligently created, their flavors complimenting each other, and executed with impressive skill (salad, $12; pizza, $17; house-made ravioli, $20). Recommended; great for a date, though if anything, a bit toward the louder side of things.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this restaurant
Food was delicious and service was great. We would go here again.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Absolutely outstanding. Excellent
Absolutely outstanding. Excellent food, terrific service and some very interesting wines. For someone with 800 bottles in their cellar it was interesting to have a new find from their wine menu. I highly recommend this comfortable restaurant

little italian in saratoga
I have an annual dinner with old friends every fall. We meet in Saratoga midway between our homes. I pick the place. This year, I chose Capriccio Saratoga because I have been trying to get there for a while. I have eaten at the Cafe Capriccio in Albany and absolutely loved the place, the food, the opera in the background...even the sort of threatening neighborhood. So to find that Jim Rua's son can impress even my friend David, who pulls no punches, with a fish of the day entree was amazing. We all shared a pizza and the small plate assorted meats dish for an appetizer. I got the ravioli special-great flavor with the pasta and sauce-and David's wife got the rigatoni ragu and loved it.We'll be back!
