“What a Spread!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2011

While we have visited Caproni's many times over the years, The holiday buffets are just amazing. Our visit today was for the Thanksgiving buffet which was just huge with over 40 items to pick from plus desert. They had a great selection of Turkey, prime rib, ham, and fish as a main entre and they all are well prepared and delicious.

The sides ranged from stuffing to corn pudding and fantastic cheese and pasta shells. In addition the salad bar is as complete as you would find anywhere. It included great deviled eggs which you seldom see elsewhere.

Add to that, a full bar and this is the best Thanksgiving dinner short of Grandma's house.

They do this for most major holidays but are unfortunately not open on Sundays otherwise.

I would be remiss if I did not mention their standard menu which is also great.

The service is good and the setting is nice with a view of the Ohio River and it is right next to the railway station for Maysville so a train could come right past your window but this seldom happens so it must be lucky if you see one.

Caproni's certainly has my recommendation and it is a scenic drive to get there whether you come from the Ohio side or the Kentucky side of the river.

“Great find by the Ohio River”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2011

Caproni's is an Italian restaurant located directly on the river. As a bonus for train-lovers such as myself, train tracks run right beside the restaurant so you may get to see one although none appeared during our visit. The food was excellent. The dinners come with a house salad which has a delicious dressing and is served family-style. I had steak which was hot, juicy and flavorful. My wife had chicken marsala which she said was wonderful.
