We were staying in Wanaka and looking for a nice upscale restaurant to have a romantic dinner. My husband and I came upon Capriccio, it was getting late and we were getting weary of walking the town looking for a place to eat. We decided to check out capriccios and give them a try. There was no wait but we... More

Delicous meal will be back again. Service is great very friendly and personal. Would reccommend for a good night with a large party. The beef wellington special was to die for not sure if it will be back after it opens. Great view of the lake too if you get a window seat.

Further drinks were hard to come by and we had to work hard to catch the eye of staff. yes we waited an hour for... More

Not one of the great restaurants in town. The decor is 1960's style but comfortable. I had beef Wellington which was pretty good, just needed a bit more pate. The lamb is one of their specialty dishes and looked great. A good basic restaurant which should not be overlooked.

Went for a special meal with friends. Waited an hour only to receive cold T-bone steaks at $43 and the worst arrogant manager that you could imagine. Last day for season before going on holiday apparently and staff asking questions as to whether they will be paid. Wanaka doesn't need this type of operation, avoid at all costs!!!! It was... More

Very disappointing comments from these customers We have owned and run Capriccio for the last 18 years and makes us one of the longest serving owners in town. We are sorry that you didn't enjoy your dining experience but you did omit to say that you were not charged for either of the T Bones one which was not really... More

My partner and myslef dined here on recomendation from accommodation and was not disappointed. The view of the lake, the cosy atmosphere and great service were just what we were looking for. The food is also on a very high standard and exceeded expectations. Would definitley recommend for a large party or for a romantic night.

The restaurant looks nice from the street, but once you get upstairs it is very outdated and unwelcoming. My partner ordered the lamb, which he enjoyed and I ordered the pan soti Which we both ate as it was a large serving. After eating at this restaurant, my partner and I both became very ill and soon realised we had... More

Well we guess there is a first time for everything and this is our first response after 18 years of owning Capriccio Restaurant Why do you presume that you got food poisoning from the Pan Soti It is a very rich meal and the famous lamb shoulder whilst also being rich is very large I hope you went to the...

Walked in after seeing the poster in the plaza. The pork was good and really enough for 2 people. Not very impressive, but good for a family dinner.

On the recommendation from the people at our motel, we decided to have dinner at this restaurant. So glad we did, as we thoroughly enjoyed the food and the hospitality. The food was delicious, portions were great and well cooked. If we are ever in Wanaka again, we will definitely be back to Capriccio's.
