    This was our second visit to Capriccio and equally as good as our first. The food is delicious authentic Italian, full of flavour and generous serves. Variety of food and alcohol is outstanding, as is their friendly service that makes you feel welcome from the moment you walk through the door.

    Everything is perfect, food and service. Capriccio has now become our new favourite restaurant. There is nothing to fault which is very very rare these days.

    Haven't been here for years and not sure why as although it's a bit dated inside the food was as good as I remember. Lovely old fashion service and just a wonderful evening. Reasonable prices on both food and drinks. Will be back again soon.

    Service and food were excellent, lovely personable staff. Once inside, you might think you were in a restaurant in a small village in Italy, bellissimo.

    This is an old style Italian restaurant with great food and reasonable prices. Service was efficient. Portions are a good size. There is a large menu of Italian favourites with a good choice of desserts. The night we were there it was busy with a number of tables turning over; but this did not impact service or delivery of meals.

    Great find with fantastic food. Staff were very friendly and the service was exceptional. The restaurant itself of old-style Italian but could do with an update to improve the ambience.

    Everything was fantastic - food, service etc. only minor suggestions would be to dispense with the paper tablecloth over the linen tablecloth, and a slight reduction in pricing. Thank you Capriccio!

    The waiting staff were terrible, took the orders twice as she forgot the first order and then got my order wrong. Male waiter came back to clear the table reeking of cigarette smell, avoid this restaurant if you can

    The staff were attentive - at times over zealous...we didn't need 3 people asking us for our order after we had just placed the order. the restaurant was very cold and the meals served ranged in size that didn't make sense. The "homemade speciality of Seafood Ravioli" was very disappointing - the "pillows of pasta filled with mixed seafood" was merely tinned tuna in folded lasagne sheets with a tasteless sauce. :(

    We at here at least a couple of times each year and always have a great time. As good an Italian restaurant as you'll find anywhere in Australia, let alone Adelaide. I've even forgiven the fact that there was no Tiramisu available tonight!!

    Felt really rushed and pressured to select our choices. Green salad pitiful for price. No relaxed ambiance you would expect from a traditional Italian restaurant

About the restaurant

Iconic tourist destination Capriccio has enjoyed many owners over the last 35 odd years of business, and current owners Esterina and Francesco Scuteri have a brilliant pedigree of Italian cuisine and dining experiences, having run a successful well-loved Italian restaurant in the past. It is a special restaurant indeed that offers a VIP club. The décor is delightful, with carnival masks, murals and paintings adorning the walls, and you feel instantly like you are in a ‘little Italy’. The venue has a lovely homely feel as lovely aromas fill the room and beautiful music sets a great atmosphere. Here is a place you can enjoy a wonderful first date or a family dinner, and functions are also available. Homemade specialities include fresh Gnocchi with basil, capsicum and hot spices, Osso Bucco- braised veal knuckles, and their divine marinated garfish with smoked salmon and caviar. Located just off the busy main strip in Glenelg, this restaurant is easily reached by all means of public transport and is only 15 minutes from the CBD.

Best dish - Cannelloni Di Ricotta e Spinaci
