Capriccio has been in business since 1988 serving fine Italian and Mediterranean cuisine along with live entertainment nightly. We offer the freshest ingredients with old world charm. We have a private party room to host intimate gathering as well as business meetings. Our beautiful lounge with a 6ft chandelier glows over the granite octagonal bar. Capriccio is and has always been a family run operation. Owner Gianpiero and Karen Cangelosi along with daughter Emily Cangelosi aim to give you the best experience possible in their restaurant home. Buon appetito.

Nice ambiance. Reasonable attention to the table. Salad dressing very bland. Veal dish shy of seasoning. Grilled chicken was well received ... But, really, nice Italian should do more than good grilled chicken. Pork chops were overcooked ... And I specifically asked the server for the meat to be medium. Rack of lamb pricey but enjoyed. Osco bucco was too... More

We do apologize if your evening was less than wonderful. Waitstaff should have explained that stuffed pork chops cannot be served medium since the internal temperature would not be at a safe number. We have recently changed our salad ingredients and although I personally like it, it does require extra dressing. Thank you for your comments. We are always trying... More

Are you kidding me?...Seriously...who ever thinks that Olive Garden has better food is very disturbed. Me and my wife celebrated our anniversary at this restaurant tonight. The food was extraordinary, the service was one of the most attentive that we received in the past few years and the whole experience was well worth the money we spent. The burrata appetizer,...

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

Had my wedding rehearsal dinner here, needless to say huge mistake.

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.
