Roederer Estate Bubbles to start with chilled Crab & Escargots, split Caesar, Mastroberadino “Radici” Taurasi, Dover Sole and Boeuf Wellington, side of cappelletti. Cannoli, 2x Espresso Martinis and a table side Cherries Joubilee FTW.
It’s World Class, especially when done right, and it was certainly World Class tonight! Bravo!

The veal parm, wasn’t right, it tasted uncooked and gamey, and it only came with 7 gnocchi s, REALLY? Pasta with pork also was very tomato paste thick and the pork that was in it has a weird smell.. the duck was just ok. The waiter John was the best part of the meal. Overly priced don’t think I would be back. Quality has changed over the years. The drinks where good and deserts also. Sorry. We gave it the last try ...

For a post-holiday event, friends joined us at Capriccio‘s for cocktails and appetizers. Our waiter Chris was attentive, professional, and engaging. Our tableside chef, Vincenzo, prepared our appetizers and a flambé entrée. He was a significant highlight to our evening! The ambience and food were exceptional. Always a special experience dining at Capriccio’s.

The tables were way too loud. A peaceful dinner wound up being very disturbing. The main dinning room should be for quiet diners and the other areas for louder groups.

Everything was delicious. We had the Burrata app special, the baked oyters which were so good. The flavors were on point. Then had the fish special and hubby had the tenderloin risotto. Everything was perfectly seasoned. Wine list was great.
The feel is very old school Italian. Could be updated a bit. Can't wait to come back though!

I made reservations to celebrate my birthday. The host seated us at a table for two in the center of the room up against a pole. I noticed there was a beautiful quiet, vacant table for 2 in the corner. I asked for that table and the host said he would check on it but said it was reserved for another party. The host never returned to let us know the status.

Soon after that, a chef decides to leave a big rolling cart they use to cook on right next to our table. I called the host to our table and first complained that he never let us know about the table in the corner that was never filled and also about the cart. He said they seated that couple at another table in the back room, but never offered for us to move even though I told him it was my birthday. So that table was vacant the entire time we were there. He did move the cart across the room as we asked.

Then I asked the waitress for a vegetarian pasta dish and she said they could accommodate it as long as I provided them with what I wanted in it. After ordering, she returned to the table and said the chef would not make a special vegetarian dish for me to select something existing from the menu and tweak from there.

For one of the most high end dining establishments in Rhode Island, it was an absolutely horrible dining experience. I will not return and will most definitely post a review on Yelp.

My husband and I dined last evening and we were extremely disappointed in both food and service. My husband ordered his steak medium rare and there was not a trace of pink in his steak never mind medium it was much near well done - we waited for the waiter to come by to check on his steak but five minutes passed and he just decided to eat it so that I wouldn’t have to wait given it was our wedding anniversary. While our waiter was kind he was not attentive or informed. I’m sorry but we will not back soon.
