    We were very pleased by our experience at a special dinner. The server was attentive, food lovely and the atmosphere felt very special. Special thanks to the host for accommodating my request for a table near the entryway and seeing my family member with mobility limitations safely out at the end of our meal. Capriccio is one of the only bastions of true old-school service and elegance left in Providence and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

    We made reservations, as we always do, for our anniversary. This time, however, the whole dining experience was just off the mark a bit. Service was slow-this could be due to the fact that our server seemed to be stretched thin-usually there has always been two attendants per table; not last night. The table side presentation of one of our entrees was lacking in its dramatic effect-no flame-no showmanship. Food was good-but just not what you would expect from this establishment. To the extent that even in the ladies room there were tissues all over the floor.

    Worst experience I’ve had in a while. I agree with the few reviews on here saying there are problems with this place. All the food we were served was totally lackluster. Now I’m Sicilian and have high standards for Italian food so maybe it’s just me, but we would never return to this place. Service was every bit as sub par as the food. I ordered Veal Oscar and it was just weird. Grilled and beat up veal in a strange brown sauce that tasted sour. Sand in the spinach, and oil slick skin on top of the hollandaise sauce. The apps we ordered were dry and unsatisfying. Our server dropped our food and never checked back on us and refused to refund our entrees even though less than half was eaten. I ordered a mojito and it was totally watery and without any mint. When I complained they just tossed mint leaves in without muddling them. I am floored by the high ratings at this place.

    This used to be a fantastic restaurant. We had not been for a few years and wanted to share with a large group an authentic Providence Italian restaurant. I knew something was wrong when the waiters brought out 4 plates of RI calamari that I barely recognized. The rings were minuscule and so fried in old oil that they were hard to chew and flavorless. The appetizer serving was at least a quarter of a normal size platter. I was so humiliated, our guests tried to be interested but it was the biggest flop! This was a red flag. There was hardly anyone else in the restaurant. The wait time between the appetizer and mains was very long, 2nd red flag. I had ordered the beef Wellington med rare and the whole plate arrived cold, the chef had cut the Wellington in four strips, it was cooked rare and the pastry was wet, doughy like an uncooked pie dough, absolutely terrible. This used to be an amazing dish at Cappriccios. Wellington is never served cut, chef must not have known how long to cook the meat. Broccoli spears were drenched in a cold thick lemon butter sauce that was so out of date and unappetizing. Desserts were just as disappointing. Looking around the table each plate had a lot of remaining food, so it appears mine wasn’t the only disappointment. We have enjoyed countless wonderful dinners here in the past but looks like that’s where the magic ended. Too many other great restaurants in this city to enjoy, will not return. So embarrassed to have brought family and friends from out of town here. And it was expensive too.

    Had not been to Capriccio for many years. Was excellent then and continues to be a premier eatery! We had dinner before PPAC Les Miserables show. Food was excellent as was the server who was very personable and attentive. His wine recommendation was perfect. Highly recommend Capriccio and look forward to returning soon.

    Classic, white-tablecloth Italian restaurant with all the classic Italian restaurant dishes as well as some innovative options. The lobster pasta dish was possibly the best pasta I've ever eaten. Highly skilled and knowledgeable waiters; speakeasy ambiance in the basement setting that feels intimate but quiet enough for easy conversation. It feels a little bit Prohibition-era, Mob-adjacent! -- as befits a good Italian restaurant. Very very impressive wine list, and you can have just a glass from any bottle. Excellent choice for a special occasion dinner or to spoil a Brown or RISD undergraduate.

    We started off with 5:30pm reservations on a Tuesday evening. A greeter opened the doors for us. The wait staff seated us in quiet corner. Started with a perfectly made Martini and G&T and then moved onto the specials. My wife selected the linguini with Maryland crap and selected the slow roasted short rib, which was the most tender cut of meat I have ever had. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and almost stealthy when he knew we needed something. I highly recommend making a rezzy and bringing the significant other(s). BTW, plenty of parking!

    When we arrived, there was an event going on that took up half the restaurant. We arrived about 15 minutes early for a 4:15 reservation. The valet initially said we could not go in at all, and then after we told him we had a confirmed reservation, he changed his position said we had to wait outside in the cold until 4:15. This was nonsense. While I don't expect to be seated before my reservation time, there were seats at the bar and our table was empty for quite a long time before we entered at 4:15. Never encountered such stupidity before. Totally unprofessional for a restaurant of this caliber.
