The Caprice preserves romantic, coastal charm in remodel under new owners

The Caprice restaurant will reopen Nov. 1 under new ownership after undergoing a major three-year remodel.


The 65-year-old special-occasion favorite, located at 2000 Paradise Drive adjacent to Elephant Rock fishing pier, will be open 5-8 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays and 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Fridays-Sundays and is taking reservations at thecaprice.com and through Resy. The menu will feature “craft food,” California cuisine inspired by owner Jerry Dal Bozzo’s Northern Italian roots.


The Bay Area restaurateur and his wife, Jennifer, purchased The Caprice in 2017 and closed it down early the following year to reconfigure and refresh the interior and make some minor changes to the exterior to comply with fire and health codes.


The Dal Bozzos said their renovation sought to preserve the “bones” of the restaurant interior, which they call “mid-century coastal,” because they know so many people have nostalgic feelings about the place.


One thing that hasn’t changed is the restaurant’s expansive views of Angel Island, the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco. New mirrors on the interior walls mean those magnificent views are seen from every seat.
