ATLANTIC CITY, NEW JERSEY - Capriccio Italian gourmet restaurant at Resorts Casino Hotel is my absolute favorite restaurant.

We’re obviously not alone. For the third time in four years, and, for the second year in a row, Capriccio has been voted the best U.S. casino restaurant by USA Today’s Readers’ Choice Awards.

Here are the 2021 results:


In 2018 Capriccio took home the top award. They reclaimed it in 2020, during a global COVID-19 pandemic. They won in the face of a 25 percent capacity restriction placed upon their operation.

Now, they have repeated the feat and are # 1 in America for 2021.

“I am extremely proud of our amazing Capriccio team. Their dedication and hard work to deliver an exceptional product and service to our guests has earned them the #1 spot among all casino restaurants in the country,” said Mark Giannantonio, President & CEO for Resorts Casino Hotel.
