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.

We went to celebrate a birthday. We wanted to try a new place and Il capriccio was suggested. Well they did not disappoint. We like to order a few appetizers and share around the table. The waiter suggested that they will make us individual plates with the appetizers we ordered. OMG. What a great idea , this way everyone had... More

My most recent visit to Il Capriccio was just as fantastic as the first. The consistency of the food here is simply amazing. I usually have the specials since they are super fresh and seasonal, but this time I tried the meatball appetizer. What a nice surprise! It was a spectacular combination of meats and spices with a wonderfully light... More

When you walk into Il Capriccio it's like going back in time. The waiters are in suits and ties, the clientele is smartly dressed, and the piano player fills the room with wonderful music. Elegance abounds and the service is remarkable. I can't remember the last time any waitstaff was this attentive. The food matches the service. There are many... More

This is an elegant, fine dining establishment. The impeccable service provided by professional waiters is what you'd find in world class restaurants. They ably explain the menu including the nightly specials and present everything in a well choreographed manner. I know your palate will be please with anything on the menu. It's only slightly more for the entrees compared to... More

What an amazing place to eat! First class service, well trained staff, and incredible food. This would be a wonderful restaurant for a romantic dinner. They also had side rooms (one of which we were in) which are great for private parties. Since I was there for a hosted dinner, I can't tell you about the cost. The chocolate molten... More

We have patronized il Capriccio since it opened, and continue to enjoy a quiet lunch for two as well as memorable dinners with friends. Menu prices are competitive with similar restaurants in...

Here with a recommendation from the Hanover Marriott. This is a superb fine dining restaurant. All you would expect from a 5 Star. The traditional favorites with an exquisite creative flair. Service was professional and accommodating without being stuffy. Fresh fish was extremely tasty and prepared with a sauce that I asked them to prepare off the menu. Well done
