    Very good food. The view is outstanding. It is a little gem in Maysville on the waterfront. Service has been exceptional each and every time we have eaten at Caproni's.

    We went for Valentine’s Day and had reservations. They seated us with a great river view and live violinist were directly behind me. The music was nice and not too loud at all. It was kind of nice since I couldn’t hear other tables talking. The food was great and well proportioned. Drinks were good too. It was a really good value. Especially considering what other places were charging for a valentines evening. I’ll definitely go back.

    I made reservations over a month in advance . I requested river view table . We got a table in a overflow area. Did have across the room river view. I didn’t say anything because of busy night we were there. The food was ok but not their normal quality.

    First time. Really nice place, beautiful restaurant beautiful view. Food all around was excellent. The shared salad was great, but we immediately asked for another as it was small for a table of 4. It took quite a while to get the next one (which it is a never ending salad so we thought it would arrive sooner) that’s the only slight negative. Excellent place, we will be back.

    The perfect date night environment on the Ohio River in Maysville, Ky. The attentive service, mouth watering food and feel and sounds of the room were perfect. It was our first time and will certainly now become one of our go to establishments for a night out to relax and savor all they have to offer. Don't wait as long as we did- get there as soon as possible.

    It's a beautiful restaurant. I ordered the portobello mushroom ravioli. It didn't have much taste. I was disappointed. However, my husband ordered the crab cakes and he was very pleased. The salad that came with our dinner, the rolls and artichoke spinach dip were all delicious. We will definitely come back.

    We ate at some really good restaurants this trip to northern Kentucky, but the service and quality of food was by far superior at Caproni’s over our other experiences. Our server was very friendly, and super attentive to our needs. The food was delicious and well timed. We didn’t have to wait very long for anything. Our table was against the wall of windows by the river, so we had an amazing view. What a great way to end our trip.

    We have seen Caproni's from the river for years now. We drove by one afternoon while we were in Maysville to check out the menu and hours. We decided to check the place out, and we are glad we did. Great food, great service, and a killer view of the Ohio river and both of Maysville's bridges. We will be heading back soon!

    Not sure if you had a new chef, but we were disappointed our appetizer which we came back specifically to have again. The sauce on the bruschetta was runny, the bread had huge holes in it and would not hold anything and it was nothing like what we had had in the past. My chicken piccata was too heavy and lacked a depth of flavor. My husband’s steak was perfect. The bus boys hung out in two and threes and did not bus the tables leaving the waiter to do it while they stood around. Not up to the standard I’ve experienced at least ten times before. Overall it was disappointing.
