They brought me the wrong thing I did not order. And my husband ordered surf and turf which was supposed to be with steak and four shrimp and he only got one shrimp. And they forgot my friends order completely!

I was so disappointed, I invited my boyfriend to dinner for a very special night. He is a chef and expressed his unhappiness with the Beef Wellington. We sent it back first because it wasn't cooked, too rare. We received the 2d one even rarer. He was so disappointed in the way it was prepared. Beef Wellington should be in a pastry shell, Capraccio's prepares there's with the shell broken and the beef exposed. He also expressed disappointment in the sauce, tasteless.
I felt so bad. I'm not sure I will return for dinner ever again. I had so hoped to tell everyone what a wonderful night we had but unfortunately I can't.

Capriccio has a varied menu with special items not found at many restaurants. We had the lump crab appetizer that was surprisingly light with a special dressing/sauce. My husband had the stuffed calamari special. We have never seen it prepared in this fashion. Very different and very delicious. I had the duck something not always found and it was done with beets and caramelized onions, just the right amount of sweet and tart. For desert we had the chocolate mouse which was lovely lighter fare to end the meal. Definitely will be coming back. This is the perfect restaurant for a special occasion or a date night to impress! Only draw back is it is downtown Providence but the valet service makes it tolerable.

I had not been to Capriccios in years, but decided it would be a very nice place to go for a special birthday. The place had been remodeled and looked beautiful. The service was excellent our server, Eli was fantastically attentive, friendly and patient. He recommended an exvellent Moscato wine too! The food fush and steak were very good, a bit pricy for cod fish, but I understand due to Covid. My friend enjoyed his birthday dinner and I'm glad I made the choice.

Have lived in RI since 1992. Capriccios time and again is a "go to" for an exceptional dining experience. Last night I had their stuffed veal chop special. It was incredibly disappointing and not up to par with ALL other items enjoyed by my family. Did not want to make a big deal during dinner but meat was tough due to overcooking, veal sausage stuffing very salty... overall, a disappointing entree. This will NOT deter us from going back or keeping this gem on our favorite places list but wanted to the team at C's to know.

We waited an hour before any food came to our table. Service was terrible, food was mediocre and super overpriced. I wouldn’t mind the price if there was any aspect of the meal that was positive. Unfortunately there wasn’t. So many other great choices in Providence.

Unfortunately this restaurant has lost its splendor. We have been regulars for well over 20 years and they have stumbled during the past few years. We have given them a chance to come back but it’s not going to happen. There are so many other choices in Providence such as Capital Grille, Prime 10 and a host of others to bother with this place again. Sorry

Not as it used to be. Food was poor, for a price of a beef Wellington you would think they know how to cook the meal and let the beef rest. Very disappointed.

Unfortunately this experience was nothing like our first, to start they sat us at the first table as you walk in, right by the maitre de and the front door. Every time the door opened you were hit with hot humid air. Second although the Dover sole had good flavor by the time it was deboned and served it was cold and so was the sauce to drizzle on it, finally what annoyed us was the waitress took the check with the cash and just assumed what was in there was for her! A good waiter or waitress would say I will be right back with your change, this giving you the option to say ok or we are good no change necessary. Rude and after we left a 20% tip walked right by us as we were leaving. We had to say thank you before we were acknowledged. Just not what we experienced before and not what you would expect from an establishment like this. Hopefully it can be fixed as we have enjoyed in the past.

It was our 43rd Wedding Anniversary and we received a gift card from my employer for my 10th year work anniversary. It was easy to use open table to book the reservation.

The service and food were excellent! I highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion.

Always a fun "old school" experience. With the exception of an appetizer that was not as hot as it could have been, all of the food was excellent, prepared exactly as requested and very enjoyable. Outstanding wait staff, nice ambience, certainly worth a return visit.
