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.

    From the moment we arrived the service was great. We (party of 3) had Thursday night reservations at 9:30 p.m. The restaurant was only moderately busy at that hour so the staff made sure we had plenty of attention without being over-bearing. All food dishes (appetizers and main course) were prepared to exacting standards. It was a very relaxing evening.

  • Capriccio's Fit for a King!

    This was my favorite newphew's 12th birthday and he will have a great memory for years to come. Thank you to all the staff for all your fine work. One little thing, you should be aware that Opentable diners receive checks to use towards future meals at Opentable Restaurants if they eat out frequently, as we do. I know it was the first week that Capriccio's had the Opentable, so using the benefit checks were not accepted that evening. The waiter claimed he could not get hold of the owner so he delined accepting them, but the restaurant staff should be made aware of these checks. We have been using Opentable for years, and we had two checks which were about to expire and they were not accepted. Other than that, it was a very fine meal!

    I had been to dinner at Capriccio's once before and it was a memorable experience. The food presentation is beautiful, as well as tasty to eat. I was not disappointed on my second visit.

    Overall pretty good. It may have lacked some of the polish that some of the otter high-end places have, but I was treated fairly and got what I asked for. Had the couple next to us not used so much of the waiters attention, we probably could have done 4 stars there too. They did recognize that it was our anniversary, which was nice. I would go back as I would love to try some of their other entrees and wines.

    My wife and I spent a week in Providence and ate at many great restaurants, and Capriccio was the absolute best. So good that we went back twice to try other items on the excellent menu. Wonderful service, perfect meal from appetizer to desert.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 7/15/2011
    Comfortable bar/lounge area for pre/post dinner drinks. We split the Arugula salad which was delicious. My husband had Beef Tenderloin & Wild Mushroom Risotto which was amazing but Shells Bolognese that I ordered was just ok. I've had much better bolognese at Dolce Vita in North End of Boston & shells didnt really make sense with it. I should have ordered either the risotto dish or Capellini Cardinale (which is w/lobster) which i had the previous time that we went & was amazing. The wine suggested to us was slightly more money than we would usually spend but well worth it, the Nebbiolo - Langhe 2007 for $53.50. We didnt order dessert or after dinner drinks. Overall a very nice dining experience for a special occasion dinner.

    Dined on 7/15/2011
    Revisited during Providence Restaurant Week and found the food and service were both good but was very disappointed with the extremely high wine prices, so much so we did not order a bottle with our meals. As wine usually compliments our food choices the lack of it due to the price points made for a flawed dining experience. Perhaps this explains why on a Friday night during Restaurant Week the place was not packed like other Providence restaurants.
