    We found Capriccio while searching online for a restaurant near the Hard Rock. We had a wonderful meal. I had the linguine with white clam sauce. The flavor was perfect. It was filled wih clams in and out of the shell and lots of sweet fragrant soft garlic cloves. My husband had the black linguine with lobster. It was absolutely delicious. The pasta was so light it almost melted in your mouth. There were a lot of chunks of lobster that was perfectly cooked along with the perfect amount of alla vodka sauce. Our server was Onaga. He was knowlegable about the menu and very friendly and attentive. The violinist topped off the atmosphere perfectly! We will definitely return when we are in the area.

    The experience was probably the worst that I have had at a restaurant in the last 15 years. We made a reservation to celebrate my birthday dinner at the location on Wednesday. The check in and greeting on entry were fine. When we were initially seated, is where the problems started. The server brought the menus and silverware small plates and bread. Both sets of silverware had dried food on both forks and 1 of the two knives. We asked for new silverware and butter for the bread (the comes with a marinara based sauce). When the butter was brought to the table, there are there spheres of it in a small cup shaped dish. When we removed the first sphere, there was black/green specs on the bottom layer of the butter. It’s clear to me at this point that there is a quality/health issue with the dishwashing services at the facility. I ordered an appetizer and a lobster bisque soup. I made it to my 3rd or 4th spoonful and felt something very sharp in my mouth. Only to discover that the “lobster” in the soup was actually a ball of steel wool. I have cuts on the roof of my mouth as well as a small split on my lip from the contact it made while ingesting the soup. I showed the steel wool to Both the waitress and the manager. The managers initial response was not “I’m so sorry”, his response was “ oh, thats what we use to clean the pots”. I’m thoroughly disgusted by the temperament and conditions here. This place needs to be reevaluated.

    Capriccio Ristorante - Pembroke PinesResponded on January 13, 2023I deeply apologize for your experience at Capriccios. I am not even sure how so many calamities can happen on one table. I have spoken to the chef, the manager and to all in charge about this. We pride ourselves on service and high standards and what you experienced was not at all what Capriccios is about. Please contact me - karen@capriccios.net for further information. Your review was anonymous so I have no idea how to contact you.

    It does not matter if it is quiet Tuesday night or New Years Eve, the food, service and environment can not be beat. I have been celebrating milestones, small victories and great dates here. NYE was no different. The drinks from the bar were well balances. The food was hot and delicious. The staff is wonderful and friendly. We will be back soon.

    Wonderful restaurant, which we visit regularly. On this visit, being NYE, place was ultra busy and service was stretched. Food was great, as usual; however, the special menu was somewhat pricier than the already pricey (regular) menu and offered variety (which we prefer) instead of prix fixe like some restaurants offer on holidays. The live music was a nice complement to the dining experience. Decorations for the holidays were special too!

    The music took a 90 minute break (or more) just as we were seated at 7:15pm, matter of fact, the only music we heard was while we waited for our table. Once seated, never played again. Food was brought out without much delay, could have been warmer. Salty sauce on scallops, was told lobster based, so thats why. But, bisque soup was real good, not salty. Veal chop average, tasty. Service was good, little rushed, but its New Years Eve so understand. $$$

    It was New Years Eve and our first time at Capriccio’s AND it certainly won’t be the last. Everything that we experienced was exquisite from the hostess to the owner, Karen, taking us on a tour. I can understand why Capriccio’s has been so successful and in business for 35 years. We are Snowbirds and it took us 5 years to find this gem of a restaurant. Congratulations to Karen and Gianpiero Cangelosi and I wish them continued success in the future. Sincerely, Tony

    This is a fine restaurant. However, I have enjoyed a similar quality meal for less at a restaurant down the road. This doesn't discount the quality and service at this restaurant, but the prices were not equivalent to quality. We would, however, dine here again because the service was quick and servers friendly.

    Both the ambiance and food were delightful. Service was prompt and accurate while prices were reasonable for the excellent quality of the courses. There is a reason why this restaurant has been in business for a long time. Regulars keep coming back and new patrons become regulars quickly. Great place to have a nice dinner experience with friends and family.

    We had reservations on Christmas Day for 5 pm. When we arrived we were seated immediately. Service was excellent and both of our meals were very delicious. One of the dishes was shrimp scampi with jumbo shrimp which I tasted and seemed to be a house favorite. Can’t wait to go back and try other dishes.
