This, is not the Capricci of old. Hell, it doesn't even look like the pictures anymore. Capricci is now a shadow of its past. Walking in, it looked more like a cheap Italian Bistro. The staff were completely lost, had no clue how to sit customers, and worse.. staff were being ordered around and berated right in front of dinner guests!! :/ The food was absolutely SHOCKING. I have never tasted such flat, and uninspiring Italian food in Singapore. The bread basket was clearly not fresh, with the oregano baked loaf clearly recycled from last night (soggy crust). The "zuchinni gazpacho" tasted like raw vegetables pureed, and the chilled soup for starters, was just plain lazy. All the starters are pre-prepared. So don't expect anything difficult or hell, tasty. Now.. the main course. Tasteless and uninspiring food is forgiveable, but serving seafood that is not fresh is not. The moment my fiance said the lobster tasted weird and made a face, this was it. We had to go. Without waiting for the desert, we made sure the wait staff and the manager heard our displeasure, and asked for the bill. Suprisingly, the (i assume) owner, had the cheek to charge us the full bill INCLUDING the desert. Not wanting to make a scene and get out of this hell hole, we paid and left. All he could manage was a weak sorry. Worse, he turned his back to us to avoid us as we left the restaurant. I have read wonderful things about Capricci online, and seen many lovely pictures, but let me assure you, this is no longer the Capricci that was presented online. The pictures here aren't even an accurate representation of how the restaurant looks like.
I spent $65 per person.
