We stayed in Umbria and Tuscany region for two weeks and had pizza for numerous times in every town you can name. We ran into Il Capriccio one evening and ordered a pizza (not in the menu) that has mozzarella cheese, a little basil sauce, fresh tomato, and zucchini flowers (as pictured). We could swear that it is the best... More

We happened upon il Capriccio when we took a different route to Città della Pieve. The restaurant specialises in fish or Umbrian dishes. The dining room is spacious with simple decor and nice natural light. The waitress was really welcoming and friendly. Wanting only a light lunch, we shared a mackerel starter that was delightful and perfectly fresh, the only... More

We visited Il Capriccio last week (3 times to be precise) while on holiday in the area. The first time we visited it was for lunch and we sat outside enjoying the sun. Our Italian is not very good at all but thankfully Lorenza (I think) spoke a little English as well as drawing a very good lobster! The portion... More

On the road between Citta Della Pieve and Chiusi, this was a pleasant place to have lunch. The room isn't particularly attractive but it's airy and spacious and the lunch menu offered lots of different temptations.

We enjoyed Il Capriccio very much on our visit in April 2013. Though it is known for it's fish dishes, we were able to have a fantastic vegetarian meal, no problem. The hostess was so helpful, and made us very comfortable. The dining room is bright and cheery, even on a rainy day, as we had the day we were... More

On the way from Montepulciano to Rome, ambling through the lovely countryside, we stopped here for lunch because we liked the look of the place and there was parking right across the road. It turned out to be a great choice. We had a lovely lunch, particularly good home-made pasta and a fine local white wine, for a very reasonable... More

We have now eaten here three times and each time the food got better, and our groups got larger (and the wonderful owner got bigger--she was due to have her first baby the week after our last dinner there, and we didn't have a chance to visit post delivery to help her celebrate). Amazing anchovy appetizer and fresh whole fish... More
