We've been eating at Capriccio since it opened, and it continues to be one of our favorite Stamford restaurants. It's not traditional 'Italian' cuisine, but the menu is interesting, and we've never been disappointed with the food. Great place to sit outside and relax with food and drink on a nice day. Definitely recommended.

Very slow service. Good salads. Tasty sangria and raspberry Cosmo. We seem to have been the only table without bread. Forgot our zucchini chips. Butternut squash pasta tasty but not very hot and a little dry. Roasted veggi panini also tasty but could have been warmer. Pasta with mushrooms was dry. Had to ask a couple of times for water....

We eat at Capriccio often before a movie. The food is always good. I can't resist the pasta with salmon in a creamy sauce!

Always great in good weather. They also have seating inside. Everything is fresh and well prepared. I love the seafood salad, My wife the grilled octopus. And they put up TVs for soccer games

Capriccio Cafe can take you right to Europe and make you feel as if you're dining on a sidewalk in Rome, not Stamford. The food is amazing; one of the freshest and most delicious places to eat in Stamford. The prices are incredibly reasonable and the service is good. The atmosphere is great, especially over the summer! For great, fresh,... More

Spring, summer & fall, we can very often be found at one of Capriccio's outdoor/sidewalk tables. The place is very popular. Luckily, they have a lot of tables under large umbrellas. Every once and awhile, we have to wait, but only for a few minutes. Although the menu is full of delicious sounding Italian choices, my wife and I always... More

Three friends and I had dinner here! We all had delicious dinners, chicken parmigiana and 3 different pasta dinners! All were very tasty! The restaurant was quite busy and our waiter did a nice job keeping up with the high volume! The only negative was the bathroom which you need to get a key and wait in a corridor!

Capriccio Cafe is my wife's and my favorite go-to restaurant in Stamford. My wife is from Italy and feels that Capriccio is true Italian food (as compared to what she often describes as Italian-American food). Is it not fancy, but rather consistently good quality Italian food at a very reasonable price. And in the summer time, it is a great... More

The bruschetta turned out to be chopped tomatoes on a pizza base. The tomato pasta was very decent with fresh flavorful tomatoes. The spinach vegetables side was drowning in oil. The pizza Bianca was ok but very heavy and doughy, it tastes of cheese and not much else. Setting is super casual with water served in plastic cups. The staff... More
