Welcome to Capisce Italian Food and Spirits!

We are a family-owned and operated restaurant, serving fresh, handcrafted Italian in beautiful South Lake Tahoe, Nevada! While we are famous for our Ravs (ravioli) and our "Gravy" (it's not sauce, it's GRAVY), all of our sauces, salad dressings, focaccia, etc. are made from scratch, just like Nanny and Papa Devincenzi taught! We say that our items are "Made With Generations of Love"...we are sure you will agree! We have a full bar as well as beer on tap! Come sit by the fireplace in our dining room, or hang out in our bar and watch the game! Our family looks forward to seeing you...CAPISCE?

    Delightful dinner! We enjoyed the burrata appetizer, cheese raviolis, lobster pasta, and shrimp scampi. All were delicious, well served. Good selection of wines by the glass, and not too expensive. Grazie!

    The food was reasonable but nothing out of the world the service could have been better. The bread was brought way late than the next table who came after us. We ran out of water and had to ask for the check and then take it to the cashier to pay and leave. They might be short-staffed but not an excuse for poor service for a place that's supposed to for an upscale restaurant.

    Lisa owns and operates a very loving nuturing dining experience here. The homemade pasta and sauces are flavorful, healthy and honest. A relaxing ambience with a European pace, sit back, relax and take time to savour these Epicurean delights. I especially recommend the original/butter-cheese ravs accomanied by their homemade “gravy,” a tomato based sauce with porchini mushrooms….Bella!

    I enjoyed the homemade ravioli with delicious "gravy". My husband had the chicken Alfredo with zucchini noodles. He loved the Alfredo sauce! The Caesar salad was also very good...yummy homemade croutons.

    The food was outstanding. Menu variety. Extremely accommodating special requests for changing sauce, etc. food was absolutely fabulous. Even though very short staffed, still extremely attentive. Will definitely return next time in Lake Tahoe & absolutely recommend this restaurant to friends.

    Made a reservation on OPEN TABLE for 10pm. When we arrived at the restaurant, they were CLOSED!! The staff was still there (as were some people that appeared to be customers) and they said (sic) “Open Table messes up a lot, and our hours change depending on the clientele”… I don’t know if that is Open Table’s error, or the restaurant’s (or BOTH)…IF your establishment has “free-flowing” hours, then a listing on Open Table isn’t for you (you can;t expect them to know when you decide to close early)! At any rate, and reasonable/reputable/responsible establishment will be sure their CUSTOMERS know when they are open or not…

    Charged the two of us five dollars to split a large salad even though we both ordered dinners. We’re not informed of extra charge for changing a side dish that came with the meal. Sides of butter and pasta and rice were very dry. Chicken park was very average and overcooked.

    We had reservations, were seated right away. Server took drink order and food order right away and then I took a long time for the appetizer to appear. They were out of tea bags so no ice tea. We had the burrata cheese with prosciutto. It was delicious but could have had more flavor. We also had the lasagne which was excellent and the Gi spicy pasta which was not overly spicy, maybe a 3/4 out of 10 but the most spice came from the andouille sausage. It was delicious too. Then we got the check with no one asking us if we wanted coffee or espresso or dessert. So we paid and left and got coffee and dessert somewhere else. Overall the food was good. The wait and the abrupt dismissal was a bit surprising. Yes I'd go back though.

    Did not need a reservation. Only 2 other diners. Service was good and server friendly. Food was good but nothing special. We had the lasagna and a small plate dinner with pasta and salad. Bread was focaccia served with traditional oil and balsamic vinegar dip. We did not have dessert. Prices were a little high.

    The food was mediocre. The service was not good. Barely saw the waitress, didnt get bread till we finally ordered an appetizer, the check showed up before asked for or even asked if we wanted dessert, the reservation specified it was a birthday celebration and nothing was done for that which is why the check coming before offering dessert was aggravating. Overall the experience was less then average nothing special.

    This restaurant is awful. The food was absolutely terrible. Canned clams for a clam/mussel appetizer. Lasagna was mush and the tomato sauce tasted of dried basil so strongly it was inedible. We would never come back here nor recommend it.

    Food was amazing! So many choices! Staff was very friendly. However, waitress informed me they didn’t have any ice tea. Then forgot to bring my second beverage choice. I had to ask for it after she brought the appetizer. Then later forgot to bring a refill for my husband. Great place away from the busy area of South Tahoe. Great for celebrating special occasions.
