“Best italian food, wine and cheese ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

This restaurant has been a favourite on the island for over 18 years, but is in a new location across from the Marina for about 2 years. Ironically Paul Allen's (formerly from Microsoft) 300+ foot yacht was docked outside the night we stayed there. The restaurant is very chic, but unpretensious. Inside it has nice high ceilings and is done in white with a glazed grey concrete floor. One wall is a display of wines, their list is extensive, especially the italian wines. We had a lovely Barolo and a Zinfindal too. The hosts are very accomodating and humble. We had the Scallop Linguine and the Pumpkin Ravioli and both were phenomenal. But the best was the Chocolate Mousse and the unbelievable cheese plate the chef put together for us with some of the local cheeses and others. A definite must go, if you are on the island.

“Most Distinctive Lasagna Anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Family and friends have enjoyed a variety of delicious Italian here for years. I myself can't get away from their wonderful signature lasagna. It is not made the way most of us from the States are used to. Instead, it is made with a a creamy bechamel sauce. If you like Greek pastitsio you will adore their lasagna. $14 for a nice and filling lunch, complete with a small fresh salad and fresh made warm bread

Excellent service, wine list, coffee and dessert.

Their new location is bright, contemporary and elegant.

“Capriccio is a special place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Our first dinner at Capriccio ... we will definitely be back. Took my wife to Capriccio to celebrate her birthday while we were on Bonaire. What a great experience. Had a nice little table outside, treated (as all customers are) to a mimosa while we waited briefly for our table to be prepared. Excellent, large wine list, exceptional entrees, great service and the tiramisu was perfect! A little south of the other waterfront restaurants, Capriccio is definitely worth a visit. Prices were very reasonable for the quality of the meal.

“Nice seaside Italian dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

Some friends of ours recommended this restaurant highly. It did not disappoint. The wine list is extensive, the new location is modern and quite attractive, and the owners are friendly and attentive. The bread and appetizer were wonderful. I had "catch-of-the-day" and it was seasoned and prepared wonderfully. The tiramisu is the best ever. The side salad that comes with the entrees is quite small, but that turned out to be a blessing, as I had all the food I could handle.

“Very modern space”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

The food was very good here, but may have stepped up to excellent if our pastas had just a tad more salt. All in all, a good restaurant that we would recommend. Service was attentive and they gave us a lot of on the house yummys including mimosas. The Italian rose on the menu is very good. The most interesting aspect of the experience however was how incredibly modern the space was. Very bright lights and lots of wine.
