We stopped in this restaurant to eat dinner and we were really disappointed. We ordered pasta as well as a Caesar salad, the pasta was disgusting (noodles instead of spaghetti and absolutely no taste). The salad was acceptable but the chicken was bad quality (lot...

We consistently have excellent lunches and dinners at Capriccio. Food is very good and so is the service. Consistent quality at a reasonable price. Conveniently located right on Main Street and no over-run by tourists. Free parking located 1/2 block away. Highly recommended.

We were staying nearby on my birthday and based on reviews decided to try this restaurant. Pleasant atmosphere, lovely staff and great food. The team made a fuss on finding out it was my birthday which was really nice. They helped make the day special....

I ate her the other night after the movies and it was fantastic. the service and food were excellent. The wait staff were fun and attentive. I tried one of their specials and I would have it again and aging.

Dined here many times over the past four years. This family owned restaurant serves thoughtfully prepared dishes in a very friendly atmosphere.

Real Italian espresso is served here. Cappuccino is great, too. And tiramisu is to die for. Frankly, I could recommend their entire menu! And the staff is so friendly! Thank you!
