PEMBROKE PINES (CBSMiami) — You’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time when you enter Capriccio Ristorante on North University Drive in Pembroke Pines.

This family owned eatery has been serving up authentic Italian dishes for 32 years!

There is nightly entertainment where owner Gian Piero Cangelosi sings. There is also a violinist and a pianist.

The look of Capriccio’s is old school; Tuscan yellow walls, Italian columns and a bar with a dramatic antique chandelier.

The food spans the regions of Italy.
