Good Choice for Lunch

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.

This is a fine little restaurant on Ridge Road in Lyndhurst near Rt 3 and 17. The food is delicious and the portions generous. We had dinner and there were 8 of us. The servers were very attentive and the service was very good. The meal was even better! I've been here before and have found it to be consistently... More

We had dinner at Il Cafone on Friday. My wife and sister in-law had chicken marsala and I had salmon. Basically the food was tasteless and we had to pay extra for the pasta. The whole thing was disappointing. There were a lot of empty tables on a Friday night at the BYOB restaurant. We should have known better. We... More

I had dinner recently with a group of friends. Ordered veal parmigiana, capellini & vodka sauce. I received a bowl of vodka soup, submerged within was the veal (not parmigiana) and capellini. Awful. I should have sent it back. Since I was with a group of people, I nibbled not to cause a problem. I would not recommend.

Picked Trattoria Il Cafone as the restaurant for our re-pass lunch following my grandmothers funeral. The staff was accommodating, food was very good and atmosphere very pleasing. We did go in the afternoon so I'm not sure of the crowd or service in the evening, but for our purpose it filled the bill.

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
