History & More
Caprice opened its doors in downtown Redlands in 1988. Since then, the cafe has continually evolved, and now stands as a fine dining restaurant offering elegant indoor and patio seating. Caprice is known for having some of the finest cuisine in the Inland Empire.
Chris Pepino, Caprice’s former manager, bought the restaurant from Nabil Ayoub in 2013. Pepino, a musician and documentary filmmaker, began working at Caprice in 2002 to supplement his income. “I fell in love with the restaurant,” he said. “The food was so fantastic. I was really comfortable here. Then the opportunity came to take over.” He’s remodeled and added seven dishes, including Kurobuta pork belly (from highly prized Black Berkshire pigs), which is slow-braised with spiced apple chutney ($16).
