This pasta is excellent. The chef did not hold back on the shrimp, salmon, and scallops. The sauce was hearty. There was enough pasta to share.

The food was delicious and the service was awesome. Unfortunately, the restaurant is being sold. Hopefully, it'll be an owner who will continue the delicious spirit of Capriccio.

The menu is very nice, wide range of classic Italian dishes. There is an option to get a small Caesar salad add on to the entree. This was a generous salad; the house bread was typical italian, and served warm; it was perfect. The daily...More

We were the first people to be seated, so it made me question whether the food would be good. It is very good. My foodie 8-year old enjoyed his dish (meatball sandwich with salad) and my daughter was served a massive pizza (took home half...More

Hello, I know the Risotto is gluten free. And I highly recommend that dish. They also have chicken, seafood, beef. Best.
