My husband and I recently visited capriccio's for a romantic celebration dinner on our way to the airport to kick off our vacation . We have been here many times and we are never disappointed . I love the old school Italian feel of the place. The food is always delicious and the variety is amazing . I'm always trying... More

Capriccio is a very nice gastronomic restaurant nicely located in downtown proviedence. The dining room is really nicely decorated and cosy. The waiters are really willing to help in the explanation of the daily meals specials. I personnaly went for cold oysters as a starter, followed by a beef filet wellington and a strawberry cheesecake. I also ordered two nice... More

Capriccio's is a true Italian experience. Food, atmosphere and service - all are top shelf. A special occasion location. One of our family favorites.

Décor is dark with old fashioned furniture, the charger or service plates can only have come from the 80s and look so very very dated and are looking rather tired. Lots of things were flambéed while we were there which harks back to the 80s. This is not an establishment that has kept up with the times but still manages... More

A perfectly good evening was ruined by two out of control children with constant shrieking, crying, and fits of rage. These outbursts were frequent and more than annoying. Even the wait staff cringed from the noise. Management was aware of the situation yet did nothing to remedy this nor did the parents. With a bill over $300, we expected and... More

The basement setting was gorgeous; however, the tuxedoed waiter was pretentious (and halfway through the evening was just absent), and the food was just a tad above average. I have had far better at other restaurants for less expense. The artic char special seemed like it could have been pre-coated and frozen, It was rather dry and the small amount... More

Excellent Italian food, with upscale ambience. NOT your checkered tablecloth kind of place. Very good service. Do use the valet service, however, since parking can be a problem due to it's location, on the river on the downtown side of the city.

This is our 2nd time going here and will certainly not be our last. They offer free valet parking which makes it very easy and we love not having to worry about where we will park. You have to walk down stairs into the restaurant. The service is impeccable. Men wear tuxedos and really know there stuff. We sat not... More

I have been going to Capriccio for over 20 years and I felt this last last visit the quality had gone down. The atmosphere was still nice and the wait staff is always enjoyable but the good was just okay. The specials weren't very good and there were even little fruit flies all around. Very disappointing.
