Every winter, Italian peasants scour the countryside, tapping marinara trees for their valuable red sap and snapping twigs off spaghetti shrubs for sustenance. Take advantage of their bountiful harvests with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Italian cuisine at Capriccio's Ristorante in Pembroke Pines.

Delighted epicureans will bask in Capriccio's luscious earth-tone ambience while sampling from the massive menu. On weekend evenings, owner Gianpiero Cangelosi, born in Palermo, Sicily, serenades diners with opera and mournful Italian songs of recipes that got away. Against the backdrop of nightly live piano, veal palliard dances slowly under a white-wine sauce, adorned with ham, asparagus, truffles, and fontina cheese ($27), and the glow from Capriccio's 6-foot-tall chandelier glints off thin slices of raw filet mignon topped with capers, onions, and parmesan ($10). The Herculean menu also showcases escargot provenciale sautéed in garlic and white wine and served over puff pastry ($12), penne mare e monte, a delectable assemblage of shrimp and mushrooms in a creamy vodka sauce ($24), and a massive array of salads, soups, and wines.

The airy lounge features a full bar and live music to dance or to rhythmically chew by every Wednesday through Saturday night. Plush red booths nestle in the corner of the restaurant, beneath ornate columns, exposed red brick, and lustrous dark wood of the restaurant's interior.

Reviews

Five Yelpers give Capriccio’s Ristorante a 4.5-star average, and TripAdvisors award it an average of four owl eyes:

  • I am from an Italian family and this is where I take my relatives for the best Italian food and they love it. The service is also the best, attentive respectful waiters who take care of you throughout the meal. – unirhere, TripAdvisor
  • The dishes were fresh and authentic, and the service was excellent. We were there for a while and had a nice relaxing dinner. – Ikam A., Yelp, 2/4/11

Capriccio's Ristorante

Though born in Sicily, Gianpiero Cangelosi moved throughout Europe, developing his skills as a restaurateur. In 1987, he finally landed by parachute in Pembroke Pines and opened Capriccio's Ristorante with the help of his wife Karen. Their traditional take on Italian cuisine quickly earned them a loyal legion of followers, and eventually the demand was too great to fit into one dinning room. They expanded their space with a second dining room and a lounge where a 6’5” chandelier shimmers above an octagonal granite bar. But as much as its surroundings have changed, the quality and authenticity of the food—which has earned the eatery multiple OpenTable Diner’s Choice awards—has not. The restaurant’s waiters ferry dishes of salmon and pine nuts, rack of lamb, and Black Angus filet mignon to tables of quietly salivating guests. Bites of braised veal shank or calamari pair with a dizzying array of wines from Italy, California, and Chile.

The restaurant’s decor reflects the origins of its cuisine–white Corinthian pillars flank sunny yellow walls marked by brick accents, arches, and ornately framed paintings. Diners lounge in wrought iron chairs as they listen to the standup routines of local violinists and pianists.
