Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

One of the best meals on our holiday vacation in Australia! The Cesar salad, Veggie Pizza and Tortellini was all very unique and we couldn’t decide which we liked best! To top it off, a great wildlife show with fruit bats flying in and Platypus...Creek was active as well! Truly a great dinner experience at dusk!More

We purchased a family size pizza from Cappriccios Maleny - and what a monumental disappointment! The pizza was very undercooked - the cheese was still white and the toppings were not cooked, while the crust was a limpid mess because, of course, it wasn’t cooked....Couple undercooked with way too much garlic and it made the food completely inedible. After half of one piece it went in the rubbish bin. This was a completely preventable screw up. I can only assume this place relies heavily on short-term tourist trade and literally just doesn’t give a proverbial toss. Just a huge waste of money. And don’t tell me you were busy - we ordered at 5.15pm. They just didn’t care enough ….. go elsewhere.More

With little choice on a Sunday night in Maleny we were not only lucky but thankful to find this restaurant. Nice and roomy with a Tuscan feel, the pizza selection was great. Delivered hot from the oven with generous toppings. Overall a great dinner in...a nice casual restuarant.More

An hour and a half wait for a mediocre meal while the kitchen produced numerous pizzas for takeaway. We won’t be back. Really disappointing.

This restaurant appears so atmospheric. We walked past and looked inside, made a reservation and returned a few hours later. We were shown to a lovely table next to the fountain. We were handed a menu and given glasses and cold water. After that, we...turned invisible. The wait staff attended to everyone else. It was not particularly busy on a Wednesday evening. Thirty minutes later, we gave up and left, going to the Chinese next door. Still invisible, I think our absence was not noticed. So disappointed.More

Tried this place despite the bad reviews and was surprised. Nice fluffy pizzas bases and lots of toppings. i really enjoyed the lamb pizza i got and my hubby was happy with his pasta too. The wait staff were quick with our orders and drinks...though we came on a weekday night. Didn’t get a chance to try their dessert this time as the serving sizes are large, but we’ll definitely be back! Thanks CappricciosMore

Having read the mixed reviews, we thought it can't be that bad. It was. The pizza was near burnt, on a shopbought base (not handmade as the menu states), and piled high with toppings with an excess of processed ham. The seafood pasta was passable....Staff were friendly. While I accept that a small town may not excel in authentic Italian cuisine, this was so far from Italian or even decent food. I never like to leave a poor review, but a bit more effort with ingredients and cooking would make the difference.More

To begin, I ordered a steak rare. It came out well doneindeed overcooked but with a nice sauce, I felt guilty sending it back but, rare is rare. It then took over half an hour to get another. My son had ordered tortellini which was...swimming in so much butter and oil you couldn't taste anything else and felt like it had been reheated. He then had to sit and wait for ages while I picked at my chips as they got cold. Eventually steak came back out, as we were about to leave. Cooked rare as requested but with some strange watery onion and tomato sauce over the top which was definitely nothing like the original sauce ( no onions), I tipped it off and ate the steak. To be fair, they then gave us a big discount without us having asked or complained, which was a nice touch, but food was pretty awful I think chefs have no idea what they are doing. I saw pizzas going past that looked pretty burnt. I have not been that disappointed in a meal out since I can remember. Wait staff were friendly and nice.More

We've been returning to this restaurant for years and I have previously given it good reviews but never again. There are new owners and they obviously have no idea how to serve up good food. Garlic bread - very dry due to no where near...enough butter and very little garlic taste. We both ordered pasta mains and they tasted like cheap frozen meals micro-waved; and the meals were COLD. I don't allege they were micro-waved meals but that's how bad they were. Actually, ALDI does some frozen spaghetti meals that are better than what we were served. Neither of us finished our meals. It started off badly when we walked in and the guy who appears to be the person in charge looked at us and then turned his back on us and walked away. "Good evening" would have been nice. We ordered drinks to arrive with our meals but that that never happened despite 2 servers promising us they would get them. The price of their wines is exorbitant. I'd give the place zero stars if I could. For your own sake, don't eat here.More

I ordered a gluten free Italian supreme pizza and a small serve of arancini balls for take away. My order was ready within the 20-25 minute time frame I was given when I ordered over the phone, which was good. But when I went to...pick up my order I had to wait about 10minutes just to be acknowledged. There was a couple waiting when I arrived too and I witnessed 5 separate staff members ignore them - not even a "sorry, I'll be with you in a moment" was said to them. When they were finally acknowledged by a staff member, they asked him a question (I didn't hear what it was) and he asked another staff member, who loudly snapped "No! No they can't!". It was very rude of her, and I could see the couple, who were then turned away, were feeling uncomfortable. The first staff member then served me, and he was friendly and courteous. The gluten free pizza base had an unpleasant texture - like it was somehow overcooked and undercooked at the same time. And yes, it is possible to have a tasty gluten free pizza base - I've had much nicer GF pizzas from Domino's and even the frozen ones from Woolworths are nicer than this was! The pizza was sooo salty - I think most of the topping was ham - I could barely taste any sauce at all, and there was barely any flavour to be tasted besides salty. The arancini balls were a very good sized serving, but they were very basic. I usually love arancini balls, but these were pretty disappointing. The filling was pretty tasteless and seemed to be just rice and peas. They were served with a dressing that seemed to be a mix of aioli and sweet chilli sauce. It was pretty tasty, but I was disappointed that they weren't served with a homemade tomato-based sauce like I've had with arancini balls at other restaurants. I expect authentic arancini balls to be served with a tomato-based sauce, but maybe that's not right?? As a local, I'd love to be able to recommend and support small businesses in town, but I'm afraid I just can't do that with Capriccios, and I'm sorry to say it but I'll be sticking with Domino's in Beerwah and homemade pizzas on bases from Woolworths from now on.More

We were in Maleny for a weekend and were looking for somewhere to have dinner on the Sunday night. Given that a lot of places close early on a Sunday, there weren’t many options so we thought we’d go for Italian. How bad could it...be, right? The service wasn’t too bad although we did have to wait a while for someone to come and take our order. Once the order was taken it didn’t take too long to get our food. Sadly it just wasn’t that nice. The garlic bread was just your ordinary run of the mill garlic bread and our pastas weren’t much better. It’s definitely not authentic Italia (carbonara does not have cream in it). Whilst we had different dishes, looking at them you would think they were the same sauces but with different pastas - my husbands tortellini looked just like a Latina Fresh pasta. Nothing homemade here. Whilst we didn’t have pizza, the elderly gentleman sitting at the table over from us was loving his so perhaps that was our mistake by not ordering a pizza but when we walked in there was a whole heap of pre-cooked pizza bases (the kind you would buy in a supermarket) all over the bench behind the counter so they don’t make their bases from scratch either - store bought pizza bases to go with the store bought pasta and garlic bread. It was all too disappointing and would not risk giving them a second chance if I found myself in Maleny again. If you love your authentic Italian, give this place a miss.More
