My favourite Italian restaurant in Ventura County.. We are always greeted it's a smile.. My favourite dish is Chicken Picatta... The sauce is just perfect with a touch of fresh lemon... I try to try something different every mie we go... Halibut, Chicken Parma, Lasagna,... It's all been so good... Try the desserts too. Fantastic!!!!

My wife and I went late on a Sunday night and wound up closing the place down. The servers were professional and personable and gave great recommendations. Food was fantastic, particularly the Pasta Puttanesca. Large apps, salad, two entrees, two glasses of wine and dessert and the tab was only $80. We will be back!

Food was great. As in very delicious. We took suggestions from the server and were happy with the menu items. Server was nice and polite, though not overly so. Also, don't forget to pay for parking out front. We didn't see the ever-so-small sign in the dimming light of the day and our $65 meal for three almost doubled because... More

So surprised by this small restaurant. We had amazing Italian food. Fresh mushrooms, homemade pasta, tasty sauces. Recommend the bolognese or carbonara. Fresh salads. The staff are great and so much fun. We actually enjoyed ourselves so much we closed the place down with come great desserts and coffee. If you are in Ventura, this is one to try.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch was traveling back to LA. I had the BBQ Chopped Salad, which included chicken in a zesty BBQ sauce. The tomato and avocado were chopped a little larger than usual, giving the salad a more rustic feel. My wife's lasagna was also flavorful and perfectly sized. Would gladly stop by here again....

This place gets busy but the service is usually pretty good. Love the meat & pasta dishes, good dessert selection, friendly staff and owners. Does get a little noisy after dark.

My family loves the restaurant and have been coming here for years. They even catered our wedding! Chicken Parma is my favorite dish. The Risotto is always top notch and if you happen in on a night that they have the Italian Meatloaf on special, then you're in for a treat.

Went here on a recommendation from a friend. Glad we tried this place. Nice and quaint. Lots of windows so nice lighting and street views. We got seated right away. Our waiter was excellent and was able to give me a good wine recommendation with my entree. I had the Rack of Lamb, which was one of their specials. My... More

On a buzy corner in Old Mission part of Ventura. Excellent lunch and dinner. Small but comfortable. Has imported Italian olive oils and vinegars, plus a good selection of wines. Through your window you'll see walking by shoppers from the stores next door. The Old San BuenaVentura Mission is directly across the street, if you'd like to visit there.

after reading excellent reviews on tripadvisor, we decided to try Capriccio. I liked the atmosphere and decor. Food and wine were decently priced ($10-$15) for entrees. I ordered the cannelloni and my friends shared a pizza. We all agreed the food was salty and service was below average. After reading great reviews, I'm thinking I just didn't order the right...
