Luxurious Capriccio, carved out of the cellars of a Financial District landmark, is located along the Providence Riverwalk at the corner of Dyer & Pine Streets. It has long been the capital city’s renowned mecca for candlelight sophistication and black tie service “where locals and out-of-towners are deliciously pampered.” Creative continental cuisine with a northern Italian and Mediterranean accent has earned it over 35 awards for fine dining and wines. Signature dishes include imported Dover sole, Maine lobster, prime aged steaks, native seafood, housemade pastas, and flambeed desserts. Recipient of the Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence, its elegant lounge boasts one of America’s great Cognac collections. Open weekdays for lunch, daily for dinner. Complimentary valet parking.

                                    Capriccio is awesome however was not happy being rushed - looked forward to a relaxing experience. Made a reservation for 6:30 was not told it was the last seating of the evening was prepared to enjoy appetizer’s and drinks - were rushed to order dinner - kitchen was closing. Did not expect this from a restaurant of this caliber. I guess Capriccio was not the place to go for Mother's Day - expected more than what they could offer.

                                    ILL NEVER GO BACK. went on mothers day and got the "special" menu with overpriced everything. our server was an absolute train wreck and was drunk. we were charged for things we didnt get and not charged for other things. i was horrified when the server dumped my entire wine split in my glass at once. all i can say is even if your paying, i am not going back. the bathroom had debris all over the floor. when a restaurant taunts being fancy and charges $50 + for entrees it needs to back it up everywhere and this place wasnt even close. terrible. also, my sister is a pharma rep and has done many programs there - she said the owners son NEVER recogizes her when shes there - and she's pretty memorable as a very good looking 6' tall woman. just awful -

                                    My husband and I went to dinner at capriccios for Mother’s Day. It was absolutely out of this world the ambience was second to none and the food was excellent I can’t say enough about our experience because the waiter was knowledgeable friendly and just an overall nice guy. I hope I have the opportunity to go there again.

                                    We were underwhelmed. The food was very average and the service was sub par. Unfortunately our waiter was not of the professional caliber we are accustomed to in finer restaurants. Do not plan to return.

                                    $18.00 for six little necks the size of a penny was overpriced. The waiter didn't offer a wine list but read it to us as types of wine but no other detail like California/Italy, etc. Later when requested an after dinner drink menu they had their wines listed. Waiter split the order of little necks when we requested that the salad be split. Cheesecake was average. Pork chop was excellent. I imagine the dining room would be loud if full but it was a slow night with only 3 or 4 other tables occupied.

                                    Food was good but not Capriccio good. We had reservations but Maitre D was missing in action for about 10 minutes. Server was excellent; quite knowledgeable and attentive. I was surprised there was not a wine list but the server helped me with a fine wine selection. The beet salad was disjointed and the lettuce a little wet, minestrone was good, and Caesar salad bland. Entrees were solid - excellent veal parm as well as the beef tenderloin risotto. Pollo toscana was a little dry but flavorful. Baileys crème brûlée was OK, but the tiramisu was excellent. Very nice cappuccino. Similar to other comments, when we made the reservation, we indicated that the dinner was a birthday celebration but the restaurant made no mention of the occasion. We also noted a few ingredient substitutions. All in all good but a miss from being Capriccio-good from the past.

                                    The food was very good and the server was very nice. I asked before I made the reservation if they would offer the Theater Price Fixed menu on Easter, I was told yes. We were seated with menus but not the Theater Menu. I had to go back to the front and ask for the menus and the wine list since our server had not welcomed us after 10 minutes. I had to speak to a few people to get them. Beautiful dining room. Large portions. Slow service. OK wine by the glass. This was not a relaxing dinner. There was plenty of help so that was not an excuse.

                                    Capriccio has been my family's go-to restaurant for special celebrations for decades. Unfortunately, our most recent visit might be our last. Everything was off. Probably the worst gin gimlet I've ever been served. Escargot was DOUSED with Pernod? or some sort of alcohol and was very harsh, I had to shake off every drop of sauce before taking a bite. My entrée (Steak Diane) was a bit overcooked, but otherwise fine, but served with INEDIBLE, undercooked fingerling potatoes. My companion ordered the pork chop - usually one of our favorite menu items, it was overcooked. All in all a very disappointing anniversary dinner.

                                    It's been many years since we first dined at Capriccio and we were delighted to return. The restaurant's ambience is warm and inviting. Our waiter Chris was personable, knowledgeable and accommodating. The food was delicious!

                                    We are finally going back out to dinner. We are very pleased that Capriccio's is still of high quality. I had a perfectly cooked veal chop and my husband had the shrimp cardinal. Our waiter and food side table chef was wonderful. We had the foie gras which was very nice.

                                    Made a reservation for Birthday celebration. My husband asked for a wine list, waiter never brought the wine list, but brought a class a red wine. My husband said to him I didn't order a glass of wine I asked you for the wine list. Waiter said if you don't like it I will take it back. My husband repeated I ask to see a wine list. The waiter left the table went to the maitre-d' and said "I am not waiting on that table" loud enough for us & others in the restaurant to hear. It was a stunning comment for a professional wait staff in a supposedly high end restaurant. Within 2 minutes another wait staff came to the table and waited on us for the evening. The waiter was professional in every way and provided excellent service. The incident with the waiter was extremely unnerving and quite honestly, spoiled the entire evening. Also it was remarkable that the maitre-d' or anyone else provided us an explanation of the waiter's actions. The Birthday celebration was never acknowledged by the restaurant!! Sad to say this is why I made the reservation and specifically said it was for a Birthday!! This restaurant is definitely not what use to be, and we won't return!!

                                    When I called the restaurant to make reservations I asked what, if anything, was gluten free on their menu as one member of our party had celiac. The man said there were lots of gf options for appetizers and entrees and our servers could direct let us know what would be safe. When I asked the waiter what was gluten free he just said “nothing” and when I was surprised said “yeah absolutely nothing.” I was taken aback as higher end restaurants tend to be more able to accommodate food allergies and this establishment is listed as $$$$, so I asked him to double check. First manager he asked also said nothing, but the second manager came out and was a little more helpful, but also really didn’t appear to know what gluten is. As this is a serious health problem for me I ordered the dish I thought simplest for them to not mess up and asked they inform the chef of my allergy. Ended up getting sick anyway!

                                    The food was great but service was lacking. We got seated at a table without a setting and spent the rest of dinner making up for missing items.
