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.

    Service was great and food was good. Had the macaroni with crab meat special although I never did find out what was special about it. Three very, very small pieces of crab meat and the pasta portion was average at best. Considering macaroni is $1.00 a pound, you would think that the portions would be of generous size. Everything else was above average and the ambiance is the best of the best. Would I go back. Absolutely.

    It felt a bit strange how long it took for the drinks/appetizers/main course to come given the small amount of people in the restaurant.

    Great experience. Wonderful atmosphere and the food was excellent. Mario did shrimp flambe at our table and answered all our questions about the ingredients. Chris, our waiter, was quite the character but was efficient. The linguine with crab was excellent. The Caesar salad was excellent. And, the desserts... cherries jubilee and cheesecake were great. Love our dinner and ding experience.

    This was my second time at Capriccio this week, and the food was as good as the first but the service was horrible. The waiter got everything wrong that he possibly could. And the service was extremely slow. Our reservation was for 7:30 and our wine did not come til after 8 and our first course until 8:30. It was obvious the drinks had been forgotten since the vodka on ice was significantly diluted and the Prosecco had lost all its bubble. He put the wrong dishes in front of the wrong people and got the couples wrong for the bill. Need I say more?!?!

    I asked two waiters to make sure my duck was VERY WELL-DONE AND CRISPY. It was not at all crispy. I didn’t return it because it was my birthday, and I didn’t want to make a scene.

    July, 2022 Providence Restaurant Week(s) brings us back to Capriccio once a year. Then something happens there to make us realize that it is not the same restaurant it once was and why we don't go there anymore. The restaurant did nice job putting the Restaurant Week menu next to the regular menu on a special menu. The regular menu enticed us to order that instead. The Pouilly-Fuisse was fairly priced. The Foie Gras appetizer was good ~ but too small a portion. The escargot did not have enough butter BUT the worst part was the entree. My wife and I ordered our meals - filet and lamb chops medium. They came well done. The waiter didn't seem to care. They were tasteless to us. With a $400 tab for two, I left dissatisfied and will not be going back.

    We went for restaurant week, and despite being a lifelong Providence resident, it was my first time there. The Berkshire pork chop was wonderful, perhaps the best pork chop we've ever had. But the rest was... meh. There were balsamic peaches and greens accompanying the pork, and the peaches were too sour to eat. I would have preferred a side of pasta in retrospect. The truffle vinaigrette ton the carpaccio appetizer detracted from the delicate flavors. The tiramasu was tasty, better than the creme brulee whose custard was murky. But that pork chop was memorable.

    Great dining experience at Capriccio’s! The waiter seemed new but did ok, just took a bit longer to order and wasn’t as familiar with getting a wine list for us versus the drink menu. The entree was really well cooked but the side dish of breamed kale was cold. Overall it was a great experience and I love this restaurant, but I think there is definitely some room for improvement.

    Waiter seemed like an undertrained rookie. He appeared confused. I watched him at other tables too. He would ask us if we needed anything, then he was slow to deliver it (eg. more bread, another napkin, etc.) The guy doing the water was ALWAYS on top of it. Ambiance & food quality were excellent. My nephew did remark that he would have liked more gnocchi with his veal part. Bread was excellent. Even though I mentioned in my reservation that 4 of my party had limited mobility, no one called to mention that we had to descend stairs to get in; and I had forgotten that. Time to put in a small elevator or chair lift.

    Although I have eaten here many times in the past, I was disappointed this time because there seems to have been an infestation of small flies that had us swatting about us throughout the evening. Our waiter, Henry, did everything he could to be helpful but the problem did not abate. In addition, there were several large house flies in evidence as well. Too bad as it did distract from the usually perfect ambience. In addition, I had brought along a friend whom I had thought to impress with my favorite spot. Nonetheless, the food was delicious and cooked to perfection. The question was whether or not we could get to it before the bugs!

    Took us over 3 hours to have dinner for 5 people (2 of whom were teens), very long for not so dance selections. Maybe short-staffed day or anything else, but that was the only challenge we had.

    Food was just ok, steak was over cooked. There was a hair in my friends drink. The manager and waiter argued next to our table, my wine came too late for dinner and we had to remind our waiter of a few things we ordered. Way overpriced for the experience, it’s a shame.

    This is our favorite restaurant with good reason. The food and service is always on point. We love it for special occasions as well as random nights out especially before a show at PPAC. The wine list is exceptional. Supply chain may have effected that mildly as it has everywhere but the list is extensive and we always find a great bottle. The bar is cozy and swanky and the drinks are perfecto! Our favorite servers are Eli and Chris. You won’t be disappointed if you order something with table side preparation such as Steak Diane, Alfredo or Shrimp Flambé. Take your time and enjoy, you will never be rushed. Have the cannoli!
