Michael, our waiter, was very attentive and polite. He did not hover, but seemed to know when we needed something. The food was delicious, atmosphere perfect. Great place to have celebrated my birthday!

We went to Capriccio during Providence restaurant week. This was our first visit to this restaurant. The ambiance is wonderful. The food options for restaurant week were good for a three course meal. The service was timely and vert attentive. I would recommend this restaurant. We intend to go again during a normal week. Its location is convenient for further evening activities and venues. Parking is right across the street and the restaurant provides valet service and i believe that the parking was free.

We were sat for our reservation almost 20 minutes late and then waited an hour to get our main course. The food was delicious and Our server was very pleasant and attentive. We were just disappointed in how long it took to sit/eat.

Above average service and food. It’s a throwback restaurant to Providence’s renaissance days that hasn’t changed in a long time.

I had chosen Capriccio based on on-line reviews & its web site. We traveled from Boston for a one-night stay in Providence and, by chance, met a gentleman who was once employed @ Capriccio. His father also worked there in the past. This man had glowing reviews for the restaurant, as well as suggestions for appetizers & dinners. He assured us that, no matter what the weather was like, someone would open the front door for us as we approached, and we would be warmly greeted by Sal. All true.

Our dinning experience @ Capriccio was beyond what was promised. We met Sal, & our waiter, Eli was right on the mark as far as service & dinning suggestions. The entire staff was nicely dressed. Did I mention how great the food was? It WAS!

As usual, an amazing experience. Great food, great ambiance, incredible service. Mario was attentive at the appropriate level. Always there when we needed him, perfect balance. Food was delicious with so many options. Welcoming and exception from arrival valet to bar area to dining to departure. Highly recommend. A must visit for anyone in the area who wants an exception experience.

Excellent dining experience! Food was delicious and service was top notch. Server was attentive but subtle....impecible service. Will return. Dinner was quiet considering it was a Friday night....we closed the restaurant! In no way rushed. But, noticed we were the only two at the bar on a Friday night before dinner...Looking forward to the leftovers!

The service and food were excellent, a little birthday cake was brought out for my date and the waiter was really a delight. My only issue was with valet, when we arrived no one came to my door though there were two valet standing there...not a big deal until it came time to get my car, one of the men (older of the two) pulled my car up, I gave him a $5 tip and all he could say to me was that my car was the smallest car ever as he huffed and puffed and got out...(huh?) he wasn't pleasant, no greeting, no how was your night, no thank you for the tip, not even a smile, just that comment...I have a 2019 Honda civic...anyway I had a wonderful night otherwise it's just a shame the first and last interactions are what you really remember

Of the 3 people in our party, I was the only one with a complaint. My Filet Mignon was slightly overcooked. I ordered it Medium and confirmed with the waitress that this would be pink. But it came lightly overcooked with no pink. I didn't want to deal with the confusion associated with sending it back so I did not say anything.

Lovely evening start to finish. Our server was knowledgeable, pleasant yet not intrusive. The fellow preparing our desserts table side was fun and made the our last course both tasty and helped to provide us with leaving on a sweet delicious note. We had the escargot and frogs legs both prepared perfectly and so so good. Entrees were very good. Our dessert was even better than expected and those crepes suzette with fruit were over the top and the subject for conversation for days after. Our valet was pleasant and kind and the coat check ladies were just the best. A wonderful night and look forward to returning.

They advertised a restaurant week special menu on line stating just not valid on Valentine's day and Easter day. We went on Sunday Feb 16th, our waitress told us that we could not order from this menu since it's only for patrons who buy theater tickets, which I did not see that advertised anywhere. The manager spoke with us and allowed us to order from the special menu but made us feel like we were somewhat incorrect along with the establishment. It's too bad since we always thought Capriccio's was a great place.
We will re-think all of the Christmas gift cards for the family this time around. Be sure to double check when ever they advertise a special!

It was very loud
The service sucked
They couldn’t keep up
Nobody at the door to greet you and seat you
Had to hunt someone down
I go to capital grill once a week and they blow this restaurant away in all aspects!!!
Sorry will never return
