This is by far my favorite restaurant. My husband and I used to save this for special occasions, but we love it so much that we try to come every 2-3 months because the food is incredible

Spent last evening at Il capriccio let me stress spent. Not money but time busy Saturday night and zero rush. From the time Angie greeted us we felt like regulars. I asked for seating next to my wife and she accommodated. The highlight of course was the food simple but great ingredients, seafood salad was tight with excellent taste. The... More

The combination of food, service, and decor can't be beat. This is one of the best restaurants in north Jersey. In a time when good service is hard to come by (in any industry) the service here was outstanding. Our waiter, Denis, was one of the best waiters we ever had. Along with the rest of the staff they provided... More

We have been going to Il Capriccio for 27 years to celebrate our anniversary. Last night was #52 for us. The food is superb, the service excellent and the atmosphere is like a very old Italian villa. If you go on the weekend, reservations are a must. The restaurant is a 5 star place. This is a family friendly restaurant,... More

My husband and I have noticed that people drive far and wide to come to this excellent restaurant for their fabulous food and incredible service. Although we only live 1 mile away it is definitely our favorite restaurant. This old world Italian restaurant is marvelous! It was the only consideration for my husband's 60th birthday party, too.

This restaurant typifies the old world Italian restaurant--not only in décor, but in service and offerings. It's not cheap, but it is outstanding.

I recently had dinner at Il Capriccio for a retirement dinner. The staff was extremely kind, attentive and gracious to our needs. The cocktail hour was great, especially the meatballs. Dinner was also amazing. Most of us at my table had the Chilean Sea Bass. For dessert we had Taramisu which was also really good.

This restaurant was in the middle of suburbs of New Jersey. Yet, the food was quite original and good. Service was excellent. Would go back.
