Welcome to Culinaria Capriccio, a forum for all things food, family, culture, travel, and living. My name is Franco Rua. I work with my father Jim Rua at our restaurant Cafe Capriccio in Albany, and Capriccio Saratoga in Saratoga Springs, New York. We have a passion for Italian food and culture that is unmistakeable when visiting our restaurants, yet goes beyond the restaurant business. Culinaria Capriccio is a place where we can display and discuss our obsession with the authentic Italian experience.
