This place has tons of potential! The atmosphere is great and the ambiance is fun...... But... The food is less than good (better Italian at a crummy Olive Garden). The drinks are WAY OVER PRICED and the management is stuffy. Too bad, could be really great. Never going back.

My husband and I attended a birthday party and everything was wonderful regarding the service, as well as the appetizers, the pasta,and the salad ,however the main course was terrible. My husband ordered the chicken Parmesan and I ordered the veal marsala. It was bland and we both commented that Olive Garden was better tasting than this meal. Since it... More

We at Capriccios take our customers concerns very seriously. In this case of the party that you attended, the menu was chosen by the host who booked and paid for the party. If their was any complaint, it should have been handled exclusively by the host. I cannot imagine being invited to a wedding or event that has a pre-set... More

My family was here for Mother's Day. This is a really lovely restaurant ordinarily, with good service and excellent food. But we were here most recently on Mother's Day and the food quality, supplies and service left much to be desired. It was a real disappointment. Ordinarily their food, service and attention to detail is all impeccable. But today was... More

Visited Capriccio because of high rating on Tripadvisor. Found ourselves very disappointed. The good thing to report is that the tablecloths and napkins are white which is normally an indication of good cuisine and the service was professional and courteous. The ambiance leaves a lot to be desired as it looks it was built in the nineteen fifties and has... More

Had my wedding rehearsal dinner here, needless to say huge mistake. The ambience is great but for a large group you are in room shared w the public and the group was ackwardly seated in a U shape so people were divided and unable to talk. I forgave this and went with it. Long story short the servers went not... More

I am very sorry that you did not get the attentive service that we are known for. We have been in business for 28 years and take parties very seriously since they are a mainstay of our business. Whenever a party has "cash bar", the guests are supposed to go to the bar to get their own drinks and pay... More

This restaurant has the very best in authentic Italian food you will ever find. The service, headed by our Main Waiter Enrique, was absolutely flawless. We were a party of 13 and extremely well taken care of. The escargot, stuffed artichoke and bruschetta are a must have for appetizers. Their veal dishes are to die for. The pleasant pause and...

One of our favorite places to go for a drink at the bar and a bite to eat. We prefer to eat at the bar instead of a table. Atmosphere is friendly and the food is very good.

A great spot to have a large or small family dinner. There was a party of 20 and they did a great job on the event. Great selections and choices for all. Plenty plenty of good. The chicken parm was nice and tender just the tight amount of sauce and cheese. The fish and pasta dishes had the right balance... More

Ignore the dated décor because the food here is very good authentic Italian. I was here for a meeting, so considering the food was served to a large group I was impressed with the quality and service. My choice was the veal piccata with lemon and capers and enjoyed it.
