Description: Il Capriccio serves a constantly changing Northern Italian menu featuring local products with an award winning Italian wine and Grappa list. Though long considered a local secret, Il Capriccio has been the number one Northern Italian restaurant in Zagat's for the past seven years. The wine list has been featured in Decanter, Sante, Wine & Spirits and Stuff. The same menu is served in the Bar. We like to serve great food and great wine in a comfortable setting.

Went here with a group and thought it was an excellent location. Decor was really nice and food was excellent. No complaints whatsoever and would definitely recommend this place.

My husband and I went here for an anniversary celebration. The wait staff was knowledgeable and made great suggestions on the wine and meal choices. This is a great high end restaurant - a great place to enjoy!

“Great food, Great service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Il Capriccio is a delicious high end Italian restaurant. The staff is always super friendly, and the food is amazing. Their appetizers are very good, and for the main course they serve all kinds of different things, such as fresh fish, steak, and pasta. The desserts are very good, and our favorite is the warm chocolate budino. The atmosphere is nice, sometimes loud, probably not a good idea to bring younger children, but for my teenage kids, and for adults, it is a great restaurant for special occasions.

“Truly outstanding Italian restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We are frequent diners at Il Cappricio. We love the menu. The fish is very fresh and appetizers are creative. There is an excessively rich wine cellar, with the best Barolo and chianti wines around. A treasured restaurant!

“Excellent Northern Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Il Capriccio has served consistently excellent northern Italian cuisine for many years. The diverse Italian wine list is an excellent match for their dishes and has been featured in various wine magazines. Prices are not cheap making it a good special occasion restaurant.
