Our Family Welcomes You! Capisce?

A great big HELLO from our family to you! Our customers here at Capisce are always curious about how this authentic Italian cuisine restaurant in gorgeous Lake Tahoe was born, how the entire family pitches in to make it all happen, who our ancestors were/are, where they came from, how their teaching of techniques and the use of the "real thing" is important, and so much more. So, we have decided to start this blog to fill you in, as we are Oh So Proud of where we came from and what we have become!

Capisce Italian Cuisine and Spirits was opened by our family, the Millers, Rick; Lisa; Bryan; Arianna; Gianna; and Annalyse in the Summer of 2010. We were so excited to find our beautiful location (178 US Highway 50, Suite A) in Zephyr Cove, Nevada. When we first stepped in to view the property, we knew this was the home for our delicious Italian flavors. The freestanding building with its rustic flare, towering log pillars up to the entrance, and huge horseshoe-shaped bar caught our creative eyes immediately. Plenty of onsite parking was another plus!

When we started brainstorming about a name, menu items, alcoholic drink options, what brand of soft drinks to offer, desserts, appetizers, who will be in charge of what, oh my, where do we begin? With the name, of course! During all of our discussions, my Papa Devincenzi's voice kept ringing in my ears...blah blah blah...Capisce? He used to say that to me so often as a child. Yes, Papa, I understand! So, it was with great respect and love, that we all decided on the name Capisce?.

In the posts to come, allow me to introduce you to the loves of my life, my family. I hope we all will have fun traveling down this path of memories and current realtime events at Capisce?!
