We brought out of town guests to Cappriccio's and loved the experience. The service was outstanding as usual. The veal parmigiana was spectacular and the scrimp scampi delicious.

The food here was really delicious! We were unfortunately sat in a back room past the bathrooms that looked like it was an addition for extra seating, super disappointing since it was nothing compared to how pretty the rest of the place is. Our waiter was super rude and sarcastic, made us feel stupid for wanting to order a glass of wine from the wine list, and seemed annoyed overall to be there. Again, food was so good but wouldn’t return due to the lack of service and feeling of being super unwanted as a patron.

Wonderful service! Rob took really good care of us, and made my boyfriend's birthday extra special. It was quite the treat watching the tableside flambe. Decorations were beautiful, and the food--WOW! It took us to heaven!
I would only recommend the restaurant to space out the tables a little more so the staff can move around easier. Despite the room, service was fantastic, eveyone was so polite, experienced and ready to help.

The waiter never smilled. He acted put out. Very much in a rush. Basically threw the fiood down and ran.
Iy was my husbands 74tg birthday and all I felt was rushed. We asked him to hold the dessert a bit so we could relax a few minutes. He could n't hide his impatience.
He rolled his head in disgust when we gave him s 15% tip. He should have got nothing. My halibut was so overcooked I could have cooked it better myself. The rest of the 3 course meal was very good. Also roof was leaking and got my husbands arm wet. He never offered a towel.
I would go to Davio's next time.

We were disappointed in our dinners for the first time. 3 of the 4 people ordered veal parm and it came out just barely warm. Chris, our waiter, took them back in and when they returned they were warmer but not hot like they should be. Chris is wonderful but we were not happy with the food this time.

By far the worst server I’ve experienced. Chris should not be employed at this level of dinning. Ruined the dinner experience with my co-workers. Pretty embarrassing. Couldn’t split the bill with only four people and I was overcharged since he couldn’t figure out who ordered what and charged for a drink he insisted I’d try but sent back. Extremely aggressive, not customer service oriented and street attitude. Not appropriate for the style of restaurant and should honestly be working at a fast food location. Too bad since the menu options and wine list were excellent. Wish he would have had knowledge of the menu and wines to suggest appropriately as expected at an Italian fine dinning location. The food was tasty and well presented.

We received the best service from Kersley compared to our previous dining experiences at Capriccios. Food was amazing, my only complaint was that it was freezing where we were sitting at the bar.

A truly nightmare! Used to love this restaurant. We are in RI just for the summer and last summer we had a very bad experience at Capriccios so we stopped going. Yesterday I said let’s try it again. Both last times the waiters ruined our evening…First he brought the wrong salad, than we waited over an hour between salad and main course. My husband was ready to get up and leave… we had both steaks which where below average but appetizers and desert were good… I am so sorry to say that this restaurant is not what is used to be… Could not have had worse service honestly. At one point the waiter caught my cashmere shawl and dragged all over the floor….

I liked the atmosphere, dark, intimate, and classy. Our waiter was a professional, attentive, appearing when needed, filling glasses, removing plates when done. He even warned me beforehand that the cordial I ordered was $60 a glass, (yikes). 2 of my party ordered flambéed dishes which was quite a show. The flambée chef then chatted us up a bit. Loved it. My only criticism, which is not the establishment's fault, is that some patrons come dressed inappropriately. A fine dining experience requires more formal attire.
