We go here every year for our wedding anniversary. Food was delicious, portions a little on the small size for the money but I prefer the smaller portions. We went on a Sunday afternoon and the place was quiet so our server Benjamin was extremely attentive. Just enjoy this place for a special occasion, they also have a prefixed pre theater menu which is a good deal.
Awesome place. Food service and ambiance..,top notch
As always, a great dining experience. The food is always excellent as is the service.
Very enjoyable... I would try to pair the dining experience with the show from local venue as was recommended by our table attendant. The setting was a pleasant surprise with impeccable service.
I mentioned on the reservation that this was a special anniversary dinner. Capriccio did not acknowledge the date at all. I thought they might say something or have a simple dessert at the end - nothing.
Disappointing end to an otherwise very nice evening.
The food, service and value was excellent. We were going to a show at PPAC and everyone was attentive to the timing of our meal but never rushing us. We were even offered a ride to the show but chose to walk as it was a beautiful evening. Thank you for making our entire visit to Providence a great experience!
Delightful experience with delectable, flavorful food!
Rachel, our server was fabulous, the dinner was delicious , perfect beginning to a perfect evening.
I was celebrating my birthday and my wife asked me where do I want to go for dinner. I told her Capriccio, where we go every year to celebrate my birthday. Sal and his crew are incredible, the food is spectacular, and the ambiance is old school comfortable. What more can you ask.
Service was great! Phil at the bar was excellent!
Amazing service, old school Italian restaurant with delicious staples. We reserved the private room for a special occasion as there were 17 of us. There was something for everyone. I had the Osso Buco which was outstanding. Great wine list, if a bit pricey, but this was a celebration. I would definitely go back if I’m back in Providence!
Went for my husband's birthday. Unfortunately, it was same day as Brown's graduation and there were many large/loud parties around us, so was not the atmosphere I was looking for. Had it been a different day, would have been the refined, quiet atmosphere as usual. We were placed at a tiny table for two sandwiched between 2 large parties and it took away from the experience. Still, the food was excellent as was the service. Will go back again.
They were very busy, no one attended to us for over 10 minutes. Waiters kept brushing past us, and we felt like we were in the way until someone directed us to a waiting area. We had reservations at 8:30, did not sit until 9. However, the food was great and it was a nice ambiance.
Capriccio was a great upscale dining experience. Definitely a nice place for a romantic night out. Also a good environment for an intimate small group celebration. The service was great but the food definitely could have been better.... overall great experience!
Celebrating my son’s 25th birthday was very memorable from the food to our waiter, we couldn’t have had a better night.
This was mine and my husband’s second time at Capriccio and it was truly excellent, just like our first visit there. This was our anniversary dinner and we had asked for a nice, quiet table. The table was located in the far back corner which was perfect for us. We shared the crabmeat cocktail for an appetizer and it was so fresh! Following that, we each had two different types of salad. My husband had the Caesar salad and I had a seafood salad which was a special. He enjoyed his salad very much and I especially enjoyed mine. It was made with mussels, shrimp, and scallops drizzled with olive oil and lemon. Once again, truly fresh and delicious. We each ordered the same main entree, the salmon which was cooked to perfection. You had your choice of pasta. I requested capellini and my husband ordered the penne. The dish also came with fingerling roasted potatoes and a fresh dill foam that you use to eat with the salmon. Every bite was a delight. We were so full from the seafood, we ended up having to take our pasta home. Of course we did leave some room for dessert. We shared an order of cherries jubilee. It really is quite entertaining to see it being made right before your very eyes with the flames and all. What a beautiful presentation! The flavor of the cooked cherries is delectable and the contrast of the warmth of the cherries with the cold from the ice cream is just perfection. The ambiance of the restaurant was perfect, the service was perfect, and the quality of the food is second to none. This dinner created some wonderful memories for my husband and myself. Looking forward to going there again soon.
Great Graduation celebration dinner!
I’ve been dining at Capriccio for 45 years...and they never disappoint! Classy, flavorful food in a romantic and celebratory atmosphere...can’t ask for more! I had the seafood risotto which they prepared personally for my tastes - no octopus meant more shrimp. My boyfriend had an amazing sliced rib-eye steak with all the fat cut off. We love this place!
The food was delicious and our fettuccine prepared table side was a real treat. Unfortunately our waiter Mario could have care less about us. He was too busy sucking up to a large party in the room. Once they left so did our waiter. Had to hunt him down to as for the check. When he approached our table he mentioned ‘ so you’re celebrating a graduation ‘ . He recognized my son for the first time probably because it was time to tip. Very disappointing.
Perfect spot to celebrate our son’s college graduation.
The food , the ambiance were awesome , I rarely get impressed but I have to say that I love the decor and ambiance. The Irish server with his deep voice was awesome in his recommendation and service.
As always, this visit was outstanding! Restaurant seemed very full, but our server, Rachael, was spot on, friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Food wes served prepared as ordered and was hot and very tasty.
A great evening
First time at the restaurant. Given price point, we were expecting much better service and food. Our waiter - we think is a newbie - was awful. We had to ask him for bread twice. When he was taking our order, he stopped mid sentence and said that he would be right back. Understandably that other people’s food was ready and he had to serve it out; however, he didn’t return for another 15 minutes. He then had to tell us twice that he could break-up the calamari order in 2 plates when we told him to just bring it out as we would share amongst everyone. I think he was hesitant to bring out individual plates for the appetizer. As for the food, I had the black angus sirloin; it was ok - didn’t think the beef was tender; the sauce made the meal better. My husband had the duck - half of which was fat; would have been better if the duck was grilled a little more and make it crispier! The best meal was the simplest one of all - my daughters pasta carbonara with shrimp! For the amount of money we spent, the service was poor and the food was mediocre. Will check out federal hill next time.
Can't go wrong with Capriccio. Food is always done perfectly. The wait staff excellent. The atmosphere always reminds my of a fine dining room. The wine was a substitute for what I had requested, because it only came by the bottle, but was excellent. Can't wait for my next visit!!! Highly recommend!!!
Fabulously Delicious, Service is the Best, Great Presentation, Main Course was very generous & the Tiramisu was light and Flavorful. We had a Very enjoyable, self indulgent Mothers Day💕
Went for mothers day lunch. As it often happens at restaurants you go to the first time, the initial table shown was in a poor location, close to the kitchen exit. We asked for a better table and were pleased to be led to a much better table. The service was excellent and we enjoyed having pasta alfredo prepared table side. Overall feel is old world, high quality and welcoming.
Poor server. Food was terrible. Not impressed. I expected much better
We are frequent visitors to Capriccios, and find the food outstanding. The wait staff is kind, knowledgeable and willing to engage in spirited discussions about the offerings. This time we ordered one of the specials, and though it was a bit challenging, we really enjoyed the experience. As always the wine selection is outstanding, and the bar staff is willing to work with you if you have a special cocktail request. All and all a great date night place, especially later in the evening.
Busy Saturday night but everything was excellent. Our waiter Chris was informative and attentive. We usually go thee on special occasions.
Great staff, great food. Our waiter did a great job. Made us feel special.
Outstanding and memorable dining experience. Everything from the food to the service was top notch. Fine dining at its best!
Still, after all of the years, one of the best restaurants in Providence. Outstanding.
We chose Capriccio for a special birthday, and also because they had been good with my wife's allergies in the past. In fact, the last time we were there she had a specially prepared Beef Wellington without her allergens (onions, garlic, canola oil and others) and she loved it. So this time I made the reservation on Open Table noting the allergies and that she would be ordering the same thing. I also called ahead a couple of days and had that verified. When we arrived they were expecting us and already were prepared to make her her special Beef Wellington. When it arrived, she took a bite and it had chopped onions in it!! They were appropriate and offered to make her new one, but by then her experience was ruined. Fortunately she caught it quickly and didn't ingest much, and her sensitivity is one of stomach pain, not shock, but what if she did have a serious reaction? I expect a restaurant of this caliber to be better.
Didn’t love it. Service was good however, food wasn’t great. Especially for the price- wasn’t anything to write home about. One dinner was downright over cooked. Like shoe leather. They did a great job comping the table with a few drinks and a dessert but would rather just have a better meal start to finish. Definitely more for the older crowd. Decor is tacky and outdated.
Had an amazing time. Everything was fabulous.
Always a pleasure to dine at Capriccio. Food, service and environment impeccable!!
Great upscale Italian restaurant with great food and ambiance. I would whole heartedly recommend this to anyone looking for a good Italian restaurant in Providence.
Food was undercooked and not tasty
We always enjoy Capriccio's.. This was the first time we brought other family members. They were not disappointed!
