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?

Went here for Valentines Day and we enjoyed the menu quite a bit. I would not particularly recommend the Zughetti, but it is nice to have zucchini spirals in lieu of pasta for a healthier dish. Highly recommend the cookie à la mode. Wonderful!

The waitstaff and ambience were wonderful, as was the appetizer... but my main dish seemed to have day-old refrigerator-cold seafood mixed into the very nice hot fresh pasta. Were it not a crowded ‘special evening’ (Valentine’s Day) I would have sent it back.

I’ve been here many times but this was absolutely the best meal I’ve had there. We had four pastas-lasagna, the ravs, two creamy pastas with seafood. Absolutely delicious, they did an excellent job with each dish, everyone enjoyed their meals immensely. Dinner was served with delicious bread which everyone ate too much of it was so good. The prices seem a little high for pasta but the quality is really good. This restaurant is a do!

We stood at the hostess stand for almost 20 minutes waiting to be seated 2 or 3 people saw us and told us to wait. They appear to be severely understaffed. There was no one else waiting to be seated. Service was very slow and food was just average

This is our second time dining here. It's nice and quiet, you can actually chat with people across the table. The service was excellent, and the wine list prices are reasonable. I like the food but my wife was less enthusiastic. It's a large menu, I ordered home made ravs which were very tasty and we shared a Caesar salad which was on the small side. All in all a nice restaurant with fair prices.

Some of the best Italian food we've ever had. And my wife's family has owned an Italian restaurant for almost 50 years.

We were looking forward to authentic pastas and we were not disappointed with the ravioli. The Mozz bread was great too. We had a group of 8 people including 1 five year old and 2 year old with dinner reservations for 6:15 pm. It took 35 min to get most of our drinks (Sierra Mist took another half hour), 55 min for appetizers, focaccia bread finally came after an hour and twenty min wait (with one serving plate of basalamic and olive oil) and an hour and a half for the kids corn dogs, delivered with entrees. So yeah the service was horrible. At least three 4 top tables came in after us and finished before we were served entrees. My kids and wife ended up waiting in the car as our two year old couldn’t stay alert that long. Quality of the food while good did little to make up for the lack of attention. Do not eat here with with more than four people.

So glad Capisce S. Lake Tahoe was recommended. We had driven by for years and did not know it was there. I had the Original Ravs and they were fabulous! My husband is not a fan of mushrooms, but he said he would get something with the "gravy" next time. He enjoyed his meal as well.

Service fell apart even though we got there at 6pm and tried to wrap up by 7:15.....big lulls in server check ins and just overall lacking of attentiveness.

It was the first time we went to Capisce's. My husband got the pasta trio and enjoyed the Pesto Chicken and Original Rav's, but the lasagna was just okay. I ordered the Lobster pasta dish and the lobster was chewy. I wouldn't order that again, but the Rav's were incredible.

5 of us enjoyed a lovely meal- all orders got a big thumbs up. Service was really good. Our birthday girl got a special treat and a serenade by the staff

Excellent birthday dinner with a very attentive bartender and waitress. The food is out of this world. We would recommend Capisce to all our friends.
