Capriccio is one of the best restaurants and very popular restaurants in downtown Ventura. Their menu is very good and the food will never disappoint. Pastas are very reasonable.

Very good and friendly service. Soup and entrees were nice done. Nice location on Main Street. You can park around the corner for free. About $25 per person. Bread is very tasty and warm. Nice place and worth a visit.
