Il Cafone is a BYOB family type resturant that has a unique menu. The dishes are unique and reasonably priced. I have patronized this establishment for 15 years and have many fond memories. They have a separate room for larger parties. The menu items are very generous and you can get seafood, veal, chicken or pasta dishes. They have great... More

Last Friday I had my favorite, Linguine with White Clam sauce which I order often at other restaurants. The best by far is done by Chef Roberto!! Prices are so reasonable PLUS you feel extra special dining here! Il Cafone continues to produce outstanding quality meals and expert service. A quiet, clean, comfortable restaurant where the guest is number one... More

Il Cafone is always a good stop. They're food is excellent and the selection is large. Friendly service and moderate prices. Whether it's just a couple or a large group, you won't be disappointed.

We were VERY pleasantly surprised by this place! Tried it on a family member's recommendation and we had a large family group going. We had made a reservation for late lunch, but then found we were going to arrive early - they said no problem and got us in immediately. The service was very friendly and attentive. They are willing... More

I will start by saying wow oh wow. Wanna know why? I'll tell you. It's the braised short rib. Unbelievable flavor and tender as could be. Been waiting so long for someone to do it right. None of us at the table got skunked. Everything was hot, delicious and portions were great. Moderate priced bring your own OR get a... More

I have been here trwice for private parties and the food is good. It is standard Italian American cooking, better than an Olive Garden but not a very innovative menu. It is nice for a pleasant evening out and the service is always friendly and helpful.

Had dinner here with family twice. Food was OK - it wasn't bad, but it wasn't the best I've ever had. Tables are tight in a small space. Waitstaff could have been a little more attentive to our needs. I probably will not revisit when there are better Italian restaurants to go to.
