This past weekend I went to Capriccio with my family. I won't write a full review since I already wrote one a while ago, but I'll give you some pictures and share some highlights. Overall the experience was slightly less magical than the first time we went - mainly due to brighter lights and an obnoxious guy at the bar - but the food was still excellent. I had also been under the impression that Sunday nights were family-style nights? A couple huge dishes for the table? That wasn't the case this past Sunday but we still enjoyed ordering our own meals.
So this is the first repeat in restaurants on Savoring Saratoga so far, and I figured some pictures and comments instead of a full review? What do you think? Obviously you don't always have the same experience at the same restaurant, and this way you get sort of an ongoing review type deal. Keep those restaurants on their toes! And as always - let me know if there are any restaurants you want to see reviewed or if you have any stories from the restaurants on Savoring Saratoga...I love hearing from you!
The Wood Roasted Vegetable Antipasto and the Live (meaning they just cut the lettuce) Caesar salad were the perfect appetizers for a party of five. I am particularly in love with the spreads that came with the antipasto, black olive, white bean, and a goat cheese pesto...yum.
My mom said this was one of the best pork chops she ever had...that's saying a lot...
I got the same dish I got the last time, the Stuffed Eggplant, and there was a disappointing amount of sauce. You can even see in the picture from my last review the difference - but other than the lack of tomatoey goodness the dish was still pretty amazing.
This was the only dish ordered that was a total flop. My sister was so disappointed with her meal that I tried the meat (yes, my vegetarian self took a bite) just to see what was wrong. Even though I'm no expert on Beef Scallopine, I could tell that the meat was leathery and flavorless - probably not what it was supposed to be.
When you go to a fancy restaurant like Capriccio you don't always think about ordering pizza. But you should - they're amazing.
This was one of the specials, Ahi Tuna with pea shoots and potato salad. You can't tell from the picture but there is a LOT of tuna on this plate. There was a delicate combination of flavors from the pea shoots and potatoes that brought out the tuna very nicely. I hope this special was a hit and maybe they put it on the menu? Maybe?
