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

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
