I cannot say enough about Il Cafone's. Authentic Italian cuisine. Everything is wonderful. Thursday, Friday and Saturday they have Rodizio which is to die for. Endless meat and then when you think you're done you can start all over again! Don't eat for 2 days so you can enjoy it. Bring your appetite. They have a bar but you can... More

The food and service are great. Owner and his wife are very visible, checking on their guests and in the kitchen. Order the bruschetta, very unique (unless you have been to Italy). The owner bragged about his gnocchi and I ordered the gnocchi special. Out of this world! They also offer an Italian/Brazilian rodizio option with a mixture of Italian... More

Roberto & Elenice provide Bergen. County residents with the ambience of New York City. We have been faithful customers of Il Cafone for many years since it's opening. We would recommend highly this restaurant which is a jewel in Bergen County. We have celebrated many anniversary's, birthdays, and family affairs here at this restaurant for the past 15 years.

I really enjoyed having lunch at this restaurant! They offer great lunch specials and gives you healthy portions. I can only imagine what the portions are like for dinner! My favorite is the veal parm with angel hair pasta. I would definitely recommend.

We sometimes dine with family and friends that have special dietary requirements and the owners and staff always go out of their way to make sure everyone is happy and has a wonderful meal. My husband and I love the food so much that we were married at the restaurant!

My wife and I come here all the time. We introduce friends and family here and they bring their friends and family here. I have been coming here for years. This place is a hidden gem in Lyndhurst.
