A pleasant evening f fine food, drink, conversation in a quaint environment. Highly recommend Cafe Capriccio for the many reasons listed in the review
I went there for Father's Day and had a wonderful meal and the atmosphere was beautiful. We had Puttanesca: Bright & savory tomato sauce with olives, capers & anchovy, Risotto: with roasted duck sausage, sundried tomatoes, fresh cantaloupe, goat cheese, garlic & herbs, Lamb Abbacchio alla Romano: Local Highland Hollow Farm pasture raised. Simmered with aromatic vegetables in wine sauce; serve with potatoes and vegetables, Beef Scallopine: Thin slices of beef tenderloin sauteed with artichoke hearts, spinach, fresh tomatoes, garlic and sherry. Roasted potatoes and vegetables. All these dished were prepared with love and it came through in each dishes flavour profile.
Dessert was Tiramisu, Limoncello mascarpone cake and Chocolate pate with chocolate ganache and espresso. What a superb end to such a grand evening.
The food here is phenomenal and I love that the chef use local and quality ingredients. The pasta and bread are homemade and just spectacular.
We liked the old city ambiance, plus the up-to-date dishes. Husband's pasta with chicken and sausage, and my steak were delicious. Two interesting mixed drinks and, sadly, no dessert. Wonderful evening.
The greens and beans appetizer was fabulous. The Eggplant was wonderful but my dining companions had the sliced tenderloin and were extremely disappointed, in fact one didn’t even eat it. The menu was somewhat limited.
Food and service was fantastic! The pork shank and risotto are worth having again. If you are a tiramisu fan - theirs is really wonderful!
You can’t go wrong. Food is fresh and they’ll modify if they can .
Amazing service and amazing dinner!!!!!
One of our very favorite Albany restaurants. Consistent excellent quality of food and service.
I was disappointed in the lack of substitution allowed. I would have preferred pasta with my steak but could not make that substitution. I thought the entree prices were on the high side for the quantity.
My favorite restaurant in Albany !!!!!! Beside the food, the staff is also 5 stars !!!!
Everyone loved their food, thanking me for selecting the Cafe Capriccio as a Mother’s Day venue. The food is crafted from quality ingredients and made with care.
Service was attentive and efficient. It’s a local gem.
The chef is outstanding! They have a golden ticket with that one.
As always a great experience. Risotto of the day was on point. The staff are awesome too. Thank you.
I’ve been here many times and never disappoints. Neighborhood gem in the capital region.
Service was great, food was also really good and old time atmosphere.
I will be back. There are very few resturants of your quality open on Sundays!
The Carbonara pasta was delicious! We also enjoyed the veal which was extremely tender and flavorful. The staff were all very nice. I will return to Cafe Capriccio!
Very wide variety of choices of Italian dishes and dishes of the day dictated by the waitress. Copious portions even on a half portion. Warm olive antipasto was large enough for 3 or 4 people but we were only two. Service was very fast as we were at the opening of the restaurant. We did not eat dessert and after 35 minutes we left the restaurant. It was convenient for us before attending a concert at the Times Union Center nearby.
Please get a little better lighting. Everyone needed light from their phones to read the menu.
The food was a good value. The food was really very well prepared and tasty.
Great service and meal and not as expensive as we expected. Cheerful staff was a great mood enhancer!
We had an amazing meal, every bit was exquisite. I can’t wait to return and try their full menu.
I love Café Capriccio. Me and my family have been loyal customers for years and we will always recommend it to anyone looking for great Italian food. Their wine list is fantastic, great options at both ends of the budget, and the food never disappoints. The staff their are knowledgeable and nice. Great for families, dates, girls night, those evenings you don't feel like cooking and just want to sit at the bar, anything.
Wonderful menu choices, as always. My only wish that their signature dish - calamari neri - was on the menu for Restaurant Week!
The restaurant lived up to its excellent reputation in every way. We will go again, even when it is not Albany Restaurant Week.
We dined during Restaurant Week. A lovely mix of choices on the special menu. I had luscious, succulent mussels, perfectly grilled tuna with olive tapenade, and chocolaty gelato. all for a very reasonable fixed price.
Excellent venue-first time for us. Have already praised it to many people. Excellent food, staff wonderful, and the ambience was romantic cozy! What a great find.
Cafe capriccio never disappoints. I will be going back for sure!
We had a delightful dinner before a concert at The Egg which was an easy 10-minute walk away.
Great wait staff, food and ambiance - will certainly go back next time we are in Albany!
The food was delicious. Each of us ordered a different entree. My eggplant with four cheeses was amazing. I mentioned that we were going to a concert after dinner . We weren’t rushed but got to the concert on time
Wonderful ambiance, excellent service.
A slightly different menu but very good. We especially loved the homemade sauce, tasted very fresh. The Sorrento was delicious, as was the beef medallion entree. Tiramisu was the best I have ever eaten. We wouldn’t hesitate to go back.
My wife and I visited Cafe Capriccio for the first time on Saturday evening, even though we have been residents of the Capital Region for more than 25 years. I am so sorry that we have waited so long. We absolutely loved it: from the ambiance, to the delicious, waitress-recommended appetizer(eggplant) to our main courses(veal and steak with sauteed vegetables). The restaurant is small, charming in its older decor, offering several dining options: bar area, main dining room and smaller side rooms.
We felt important and cared for by the staff, without feeling like it was their job to do that. We will dine here again soon, and would highly recommend Cafe Capriccio to anyone who enjoys a relaxed setting, a great meal and doesn't need to be "seen" to have a great time.
The meal was wonderful and great service. Highly recommended, if a bit pricey.
Outstanding meal! Everyone enjoyed their food - freshest ingredients - and the service was superior!
Heard good things about this place it must have been An off night because we were very disappointed! Waitress came by maybeee once food was definitely Mediocre for the price and that is putting it nice!
