I have to say that Capriccio's is one of my favorite restaurants, the quality of food and the exceptional service makes this restaurant a must for any occasion. If you like to seat at the bar, you will have the best bartender in town, Jose. He is courteous and attentive to your needs but, if you like to seat at... More

Capriccio Ristorante is normally a fantastic Italian Restaurant for any special occasion. However, don't go on Saturday nights; the service is terrible, and since they get so overcrowded, they may seat you in the bar section. The problem with this section is that after 10:00 pm, even though you came for a Italian romantic dinner for two with soft piano... More

Cappricio's has been around for some time and we visit every few months. The food is great and they present unusual Italian dishes. Prices per item with a salad and small cup of vegetables normally runs about $30 a plate. Service is good but a bit slow - you are not pushed to finish. Expect to spend two hours for... More

This quaint family friendly restaurant is a South Florida landmark. Food is authentic Italian cuisine you'd expect in any traditional Italian home-and the taste is spectacular! The pear gnocchi is better than my Grandmothers! Visit the bar area and take in the beauty and elegance. The live music is better than any eatery on Mulberry St in Little Italy!

We are always very happy without meals here. It is a nice place for a romantic dinner or a family dinner. The servers are really good and the specials are inspired.

Capriccio has been in business since 1988 serving fine Italian and Mediterranean cuisine along with live entertainment nightly. We offer the freshest ingredients with old world charm. We have a private party room to host intimate gathering as well as business meetings. Our beautiful lounge with a 6ft chandelier glows over the granite octagonal bar. Capriccio is and has always been a family run operation. Owner Gianpiero and Karen Cangelosi along with daughter Emily Cangelosi aim to give you the best experience possible in their restaurant home. Buon appetito.
