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.

Sinatra Might Have Eaten Here

My dad lives in Pembroke Pines and every time I visit we eat at this restaurant. It's very very grown up with no or few children. Maybe because of the prices. The food is fabulous. I had the Veal Saltimboca which was delicious. The portion was way too big and I ate about half of it. Other... read more

We have been to Capriccio’s in Pembroke Pines countless times throughout the years, and we have never been disappointed with our experience. We have always found the food to be excellent, no matter what we order. Plus the service is also excellent. Much of the wait staff has been at Capriccio’s for years and appear to take great pride in... More

Remember when Restaurants were places dedicated to offer good food, generous portions, served by professional waitress and the owner was there? Ok. Capriccio's is one of them. Food was good. Wine list is good. Service is excellent. And the owner is all the time around. Maybe a little crowded but is part of the old fashion also. You can also... More

First of all, I never actually even write reviews but I figured if we're going to talk about the bad, we might as well mention the good as well. That being said, "good" doesn't even begin to describe the time I had here. The service was Like a symphony. The moment we finished one course the plates were whisked away... More

My Mom & I went there this past Thanksgiving (2015) for their prix fix $30pp Thanksgiving dinner. The butternut soup tasted good but it was barely warm. The dinner was: sweet potatoes straight out of a can, thick sliced turkey roll with nothing done to it after removing it from its packaging and frozen peas & carrots. Only the ice... More

I am sorry you were disappointed in your Thanksgiving meal. It's hard to compete with the memories of one's family meal with the turkey and all the trimmings on the table. I would like to say that the turkey was NOT turkey roll, but fresh frozen as most turkeys are. The sweet potatoes were NOT canned but precut to be... More

I have been here a number of times. For the sake of not boring anyone, I will skip my previous experiences and concentrate on the latest. I ordered Maiale- a stuffed pork chop. I pointed to it on the menu and spoke it out loud. What was brought to me after a very lengthy wait was a veal dish that... More

Spouse and I go here for our wedding anniversary every year and the place has ambiance but expect specialized high priced Italian dishes. i.e., 4 Ravioli stuffed with lobster (tasted great) except that they were just average sized and cost $7 each!!! Don't expect spaghetti and meat balls but one of the cheaper meals is Spaghetti Carbonera at $22. Waiters... More

We love this place. Used to go there more often, so it was our first visit after a year. Service is fantastic. We love Mario :) Food is fresh, we really like the new chopped salad, and of course the singing and dancing on Fri and Sat night are so much fun. Great for special occasions and celebrations.

This restaurant is fantastic!! We went for my father's birthday and had an amazing experience. The decor in the main dinning room looks like you are in Italy. There is live music on the weekends including a piano, violin and singer. They perform many common Italian songs and it seems like every other song is Happy Birthday! The food is... More
