A wonderful place to celebrate a birthday!! We were seated immediately when we arrived. The food was so delicious and the service was incredible. The ambiance certainly makes Capriccio a special place. One person in our party is hard of hearing and this was one of the few restaurants where the noise level was so low he was able to hear our conversation, which certainly added to his enjoyment of the evening.

Wonderful ambiance that transports me into the classic ‘special occasion’ restaurants of my youth. Fine dining at its best. I keep wanting to experiment with other entree items but can’t help but order the Boef Wellington every time we go.

Our dinner was wonderful! The service was great, the food was great and the restaurant was decorated beautifully. The only complaint was that it was cold in the dining room. Diners were wearing coats! It has been unusually cold and the restaurant is located in the basement, but...

The service and the quality of the food was excellent as usual, But they changed their appetizer menu much to our disappointment. They no longer have oysters rockefeller, and their escargot is totally different, it is more mushrooms than snails

It's an "old standard" and one that never disappoints! It's hard to say if it's the ambiance, or the extraordinary food, or the impeccable service that deserves the most credit... but, I do know that you can never go wrong with a reservation at Capriccio! From the moment the valet takes your car, you are in for a special treat! I've been going there for nearly 40 years and have loved each and every experience!

Staff sucked, all they did was fight with each other. Food took forever to come out because of this. Steak was not cooked correctly at table side because of this fighting. Did complain and was still charged full price. This place has definitely gone down hill, never again!

We had one appetizer (grilled tomatoes and burratta). It was good - tomatoes were not grilled and were not ripe enough. Two of the dishes we ordered for lunch were very good - the brasciole special and the steak sandwich. One of the dishes was a disappointment because of the description - not very descriptive - of the steak entree. It sounded like a steak but was covered with a fairly greasy gravy - lots of it. Drinks were good. Service was good. For the price, everything should have been excellent.

This place never disappoints. The atmosphere is sophisticated, cozy and comfortable all at once. The service is friendly and very attentive (these are 'mature' servers....the average server age must be at least 50). The food is perfectly cooked (and don't miss the famous table-side preparation of a couple of their dishes). You'll see dishes on the menu which I've come to expect only at Capriccio, but which are actually old-school Italian dishes (bacala at Christmas, escargot, clams 'Capriccio') along with excellent classics. This is one of those menu's where you feel like you could order anything from the entire menu and be thoroughly pleased w/ your meal.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in RI. We have dined there since it opened many years ago. Consistently excellent. Best veal parm. in RI, especially the pounded veal chop version. Upscale cozy yet elegant atmosphere.

We enjoyed our first visit to Capriccio. The restaurant was festively decorated, and everyone we encountered was friendly. We struggled with deciding what to order, especially with the abundance of specials that was offered. We had the lobster bisque and the corn chowder, both were delicious. We were surprised with how much lobster was in the bisque. We ordered the paella and the shrimp alla Gino, which was flambé tableside and was absolutely enjoyable. The paella was delicious as well with the largest mussels we have ever seen. The cannoli for dessert was surprising and amazing as I did not expect the tart lemon flavor in the filling. We attend frequent shows in Providence and are always looking for restaurants we know will be a great experience. We will absolutely return. We look forward to our next visit.
