The back room was not as nice as the main room and we didn’t get to enjoy the live music.
Didn’t like the limited and very pricey Valentine menu, and were not told In advance that the regular menu was not available.
Should give an option of Caesar for side salad. Main dish was very good. Overall not bad but pretty expensive.

We’ve dined here often over the past few years. Never disappointed. The fried calamari appetizer is spectacular, but really so is everything offered. If you’re looking for authentic Italian seafood pasta or especially their lovely steaks and Osso Buco you can’t do better than Capriccios.

Everything was great except .... not only our party I have also noticed other tables, people were complaining the temperature in the dining room was very cold. We both were wearing jackets and were the entire evening very uncomfortable. Another couple requested to lower it but it must have been another couple complaining it is too hot so they turned it down again.

By far one of the best Italian Restaurants in South Florida. We have been to Capriccio's 2 times and loved our experience both times about 9 years ago when we first met. We moved to Boca Raton and wanted to go back for another romantic date night and we were pleasantly reminded of our first romantic moments. The food was spectacular again. I had the special, a bone in ribeye steak that was juicy and perfectly charred to my liking. My wife had Chicken Primavera which was pleasantly tasteful. Needless to say we Loved our dining experience and look forward to the next time. Gracie

Ps. Next time were sitting in the lounge at table 47, ask for Michael.

33rd Wedding Anniversary dinner with two of our dearest friends. Pam and I arrived early despite tough traffic and headed to the gorgeous bar area for a celebratory libation. Pam chose a Peach Bellini and I an Old Fashioned. Both were excellent and got the evening starting well. Linda and Michael arrived on time and we were seated at a table close to the piano which was already in use along with a vocalist. We perused the menu and wine list choosing a California Cab (Pam loves jammy wines) while hearing about the specials of the evening. All of our choices came to the table hot and prepared as asked for. Michael decided to go with 2 appetizers for the evening starting with salad and then Frito Misto. While he really enjoyed the salad the Misto was so much more. All the seafood in the basket was cooked perfectly and it was much larger than any of us expected it to be. Michael shared and I thought the calamari and scallops were exceptional and the zucchini strips were great. Pam and Linda both had veal dishes while I opted for a chicken dish. There were a few leftovers that were quickly boxed and bagged and then came the special moment for their incredible cannoli cake. The service team serenaded us and we both made sure the candle did not relight.
All in all it was another exceptional evening at one of our favorite restaurants. We look forward to our next visit in the near future to share this gem with more of our dear friends!

Although Capriccios is not very attractive on the outside the inside is delightfully and tastefully Italian. Our server was very attentive without overdoing it. The best thing is the food. We have eaten all over South Florida and can vouch that Capriccios food is consistently the best, especially, the seafood risotto and the fiocchi de peara. your eyes will roll up in your head with delight. Enjoy!

My guests included an older man who said his lasagna was a lifetime best. The waiter would have been talkative, but he quickly discerned we didn’t respond well to that and backed off. I liked his sensitivity.

New Year’s Eve dinner. We’ve dined here several times and have always left feeling like it was an experience- more than just eating out. Tonight the attention to detail was lacking- no offer of fresh ground pepper with our salads or Parmesan with our entrees. The food was delicious as always. But the experience was lacking

We apologize that you did not receive the same 5 star service that you are used to receiving. Holidays do pose a challenge do the increased numbers of guests. We try our best at all times. Hope to be able to serve you again soon.

As always we really enjoyed our dinner, the main courses were amazing as always. The service was very good, which is a typical experience when we go, though we have had a few times that were not up to par. The only criticism was the appetizers, stuffed artichoke and antipasto for two. We usually get the fried calamari, which we love as it is always tender and presented in a neat way, though wanted to try something different. Unfortunately, the stuffed artichoke was embarrassing, not sure how the chef let it leave the kitchen, it looked to be a 1/4 the size of normal full size artichokes, and making it worse, the artichoke heart was removed prior, so we were served a few artichoke leaves positioned together with no heart, and some oily stuffing that lacked any flavor. I have never had a stuffed artichoke served without the heart. The antipasto was a bit better, though not exactly on par with the excellent food we have come to expect from them. There were a few pieces of romaine lettuce, two small pieces of mozzarella (about the size of a quarter each), a small stick of Parmesan (about the width size of a pencil and 2 inches long) a handful of small olives, a sun-dried tomato (about the size of a quarter), a die slices of roasted peppers (each a small sliver), and a good deal of prosciutto (surprisingly the most expensive item was the most abundant, and it was delicious). This was all presented slapped on a white plate, with a little olive oil drizzled over. It tasted okay, though was a very lackluster presentation. Other than that, a magnificent experience and will definitely be going again.
