We've come to Bonaire for many years. Why does want Italian food in the Caribbean? Because it is excellent. All pastas and breads and dessert made by hand. Superb wine list. Lovely surroundings. It's our "last night" treat always. Eaten Italian food all over the world (including Italy) and this rates right at the top.

By far the best restaurant on the Island with a wine list which can be hardly matched by any other Caribbean restaurant. The service is very efficient as the owners invest time and effort in training their staff, something not really common in this area of the world. Extremely indicated both for romantic occasions as for business meetings given high... More

This isn't northeastern US style Italian food, or Olive Garden. This is real italian cooking using the ingredients available on this remote island. I had one of my best carbonara's ever here. The pumpkin mousse stuffed ravioli is heavenly. The gnocchi is delicious. A simple spaghetti marinara is treated as a dish for kids at US restaurants, but even here... More

Bonaire has remarkably good food considering the size of the tiny island. Capriccios is one of the best. The chef is amazing, offered to help with their huge wine selection, and was friendly. The food is truly authentic Italian. Fresh, delicious, and just wonderful. You are never going to be ruches here. Try the lemon/lime pie with orange sauce. It... More

If you like excellent Italian food, fantastic service, along with a beautiful view of the blue ocean; not mention the extensive wine list, Cariccio's in Bonaire is the place to go. It's been a while since I have been wowed by a restaurant dining experience, but Capriccio's wowed us. From the complimentary mimosa's, to the delicious breads, to the salads... More

We eat at Capriccio each time we come to Bonaire and we have never been disappointed. The food is authentic, interesting and fresh. The wine list is second to none on the island. Since moving to the new location a few years ago, service has improved and the view is great. We will be back again on our next trip!

Capriccio is a must if you love Italian food, good wine and a beautiful setting. Right across from the water. In the kitchen, Andrea is a very talented chef Lola runs the front of the house with great attention to detail. She has the best wine cellar on the island and we always trust her to select the perfect wine... More

Full disclosure: we have eaten here for almost 20 years, and thus have become friends with the owners since we live on Bonaire several months per year. That said, there is a reason we keep coming back: food and wine in an elegant and convivial atmosphere. When Capriccio first opened, we thought it was too good to be true, a... More
