Love it! – This place is the best. Romantic lighting and wonderful food. Try the greens and beans they are the best! The wait staff works as a team to make sure you're never forgotten. I travel a lot, 4 days a week, and this is one of my favorite places!
Great Italian restaurant! This place reminds me of the Italian restaurants my dad took me to in Little Italy (NYC), when I was a kid! Love the old Italian decor. I usually get the chicken cacciatore w/creme brulee for desert.
Excellent time after time... – You will die for the eggplant with 4 cheeses, or the puttenesca which is beyond wonderful!!! The dishes are hot and the service excellent. I have been there many times and will return again. The atmosphere is cozy and doesnt make you feel you are somewhere you dont belong getting the quality of food provided!!
This restaurant's unexceptional exterior belies the light, fresh Italian food and unpretentious atmosphere found inside. – The Scene
Push through Cafe Capriccio's unobtrusive entrance and you'll find hidden treasure in the form of original recipes and an eclectic take on Northern Italian cuisine. Dine at a booth in the bar or in the comfortable dining room. The servers aren't shy about sharing opinions on chef-owner Jim Rua's cooking, an experience that makes this the preferred hangout for artists, politicians and everyday joes.
Start with cheese or meat ensalata appetizers and move on to a main course of meat, fish or risotto. Homemade ravioli changes daily and pasta sauces range from simple garlic and olive oil to classic reds. Try the grilled and roasted leg of lamb served with a light tomato sauce and four cheeses: Your taste buds will thank you.
not bad – this place is OK. The menu is very limited and the atmosphere is nothing special.
