'Capricciosa', which is an Italian word for the term 'Caprice', specializes in authentic Italian pastas and pizzas. Founded in 1978, Capricciosa opened its first outlet in JCube, Singapore in April 2012. All dishes are cooked upon guests' order to ensure freshness, and all pastas are served al-dente, meaning it's not overcooked nor undercooked. Capricciosa is also popular for its hand-made special sauce created from imported Italian tomatoes.

Pricey but gooooood.
Had to dine at Capricciosa with a friend not long ago because I had to use a 1-for-1 pasta voucher before September was over. It only opened a few months ago this year, and I could not do much research about it because the website was only based in Malaysia, so I decided that I'd surprise myself there.
We were seated rather swiftly. There was no queue, but it was rather packed during dinner time. It was a bit hard to get a waiter's attention because I believe they were lacking in staff, but I could see that they were willing to go through the menu and recommend items to the customer, which is sort of why we had to wait for a waiter to come to us. Because of my voucher, we could only eat pasta under a single page of the menu. I chose to order their carbonara, while my friend ordered seafood spaghetti.
The food came quite fast, despite the crowd in the restaurant. I have to say my carbonara was rather delicious. It tasted pretty unique in comparison to the average carbonara. This was creamy, not too thick, not too watery, and really tasty. I can't think of how to describe the taste, but I would definitely recommend this to any first timer at Capricciosa! Plus, carbonara is one of the cheapest pastas on the menu, if I am not wrong ($13.90). My friend claims to have enjoyed his seafood spaghetti ($16.90) as well, which was mostly filled with clams and squid. Unfortunately, I am not a seafood person, so I didn't try his dish.
Would I come back here again? Maybe, if I was feeling generous for myself for a good plate of spaghetti. Would probably try something else if I came back, or maybe a non-pasta dish.
