Capriccio Rises From Tentazione

The former Tentazione in Boynton Beach is now Capriccio Bistro Wines & Tapas (141 N. Congress Ave.; 561-731-2627), a name change that signifies a change in both menu and concept. 

The menu retains many of its classic Italian dishes but gets the addition of more than a dozen pan-Mediterranean small plates, from Spanish-style tapas like fava beans with serrano ham in tomato sauce and lemon-marinated octopus and potatoes to eggplant rolls stuffed with mozzarella and ricotta and broccoli rabe sautéed with white beans and sausage.  

Only one of the tapas dishes breaks $10, while all but one entrée is under $20.  

Accenting the more casual orientation reflected in the menu is a makeover that opened up the dining room and gave it a more bistro-esque feel, plus a mostly Italian wine list that focuses on bottles costing $30 and under, a series of wine specials, and Thursday-night winetastings.
