The bread basket was good enough for me to eat more than a piece. Like the herbs embedded within the chucky pieces of bread and balsamic vinegar and olive oil dip was good too!
We love bacon and decided to order prawn wrapped in bacon and chickpeas. Again, I like the crunchy prawns and the chickpea puree went well with oily bacon.

Wow my tagliolini was simply fabulous. The fish was not mushy at all, very fresh. Saffron went very well with fish. Zucchini was cooked just right retaining its sweetness and yet still have a bit of crunch. Capricci served chili in oil with their pasta! Quite extraordinary in an Italian restaurant! I tried a bit with the pasta not wanting to spoil my wonderful pasta. Must say chili gave another dimension but I will prefer to eat most on my plate without chili. EXCELLENT!

My dining partner claimed that the paccheri was too saltish but I love the cheese in this! Pasta was perfectly cooked and sausage bits were fragrant as well. I do like the tagliolini more but this was good too!

I guess desserts were not the strongest point of this relatively new restaurant. The gelato was the only memorable part - smooth with a nice nice vanilla taste. Nice, sweet ending to a meal. Oh, if you like extra foamy coffee, you should try theirs. A bit bitter and acidic but extremely foamy...

Service at Capricci was impeccable with everyone from the chef to waiters tending to our needs. They even have a valet service so that we can dine without worry.
