Wonderful dining experience

Our social/dining outings in our NJ home area usually find us dining out with friends in Passaic, Bergen and Essex Counties ... when we're not attending theater/concerts in NYC.

I visited Il Cappricio with a group of colleagues and had an amazing experience. Fantastic live piano music was played throughout the dinner. The food was incredible and authentic. We ordered the famous meatballs and caprese salad for appetizers, the Cesar salad (made table side), tagliatelle Bolognese, and apple desert. I would recommend all of the above. More importantly, the... More

I have been going to Il Capriccio for 25 years. Each and every time I have been there, I walk away saying that it is one of the best dining experiences in New Jersey. Salvatore Le Rose (Maître D’/ Sommelier), could not be the more gracious host. Sal has always welcomed me and my friends and family with open arms.... More

I've eaten at Il Capriccio many times over the years. It remains consistently wonderful. Our server, Hamdi, is the most fantastic ever! He truly delights in providing wonderful food and service to his guests. This is the second time he's taken care of us. Take your time to enjoy the environment and food. It's worth it!

Our problem: trip reviews...spectacular. The reality...MEH! All the hype presaged a sublime dining experience. The reality disappointed. All the service, and flair and 'feeling" of being in an elegant Italian palazzo... yep, that was there. But the food...meh! and thus the value...meh! This is a DATE restaurant, one to impress. (The valet parking lot is ENORMOUS, the customer lot, not... More

This restaurant is a throw back, a classic Italian family run place. The service was great, the were quick and helpful with everything. The food was out of this world, we had a cuttlefish appetizer that was on special and it was perfect. I had the swordfish for dinner and my dad got the lobster, scallops, and shrimp in a... More

Ate here after a 20 year intermission and found the same high quality as in the past. Food is a little dated but excellent. Service is a little haughty but extremely well done especially for NJ. This time was with a business group of about 50 people which they handled without a glitch. Very high end in an old fashioned,... More

Everything is well managed. Valet parking is an option (not required), elegant setting & premier service from the staff. Some of us split appetizers - they didn't have us split it - they served us in separate dishes (grilled calamari was great). We asked for tagliatelle Bolognese for the table - they served individual plates - delicious. Veal chops were... More
