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.

I like the unique Pizza at Capriccio's. It is a small restaurant with both inside and sidewalk eating. I would recommend that you go and talk to the owner. He is a nice guy. The food is fresh and a fun place to eat. It...More
