Taking 5 year old granddaughter to dinner!

Best restaurant ever. Been patronizing this restaurant for 14 years. Have never had a bad meal. No matter what you order, it will be delicious!

My family and I were seated almost immediately and our waiter was quick to take our order. We ordered drinks but the waiter never brought water to the table or asked if we wanted any. About ten minutes after ordering he brought over the oil, which we assumed would be followed by the bread that came after we had already... More

I had one of their early bird specials. For 17.95 I got a salad, main course and desert. You can get an appetizer if you don't want a salad. For the main course they had over 15 choices. For desert again there were several choices. They had a keyboardist playing and singing. Couples were on the dance floor enjoying themselves.... More

For a place with little to no curb appeal and not a lot of fanfare, Il Cafone really delivers with the food. My meal was exceptional as well as the other members of our party. We were all impressed. Whoever the chef is.....hat's off to you!! We definitely be back!

I have eaten at Il Cafone many times through the years and the food and service have always been really good. The have added a party room and bar but you can still bring your own wine too. The chicken parmigiana is the best I have ever eaten. It is a generous filet of tender, mouth-watering chicken in a pink... More

I cannot say enough about Il Cafone's. Authentic Italian cuisine. Everything is wonderful. Thursday, Friday and Saturday they have Rodizio which is to die for. Endless meat and then when you think you're done you can start all over again! Don't eat for 2 days so you can enjoy it. Bring your appetite. They have a bar but you can... More

The food and service are great. Owner and his wife are very visible, checking on their guests and in the kitchen. Order the bruschetta, very unique (unless you have been to Italy). The owner bragged about his gnocchi and I ordered the gnocchi special. Out of this world! They also offer an Italian/Brazilian rodizio option with a mixture of Italian... More

Roberto & Elenice provide Bergen. County residents with the ambience of New York City. We have been faithful customers of Il Cafone for many years since it's opening. We would recommend highly this restaurant which is a jewel in Bergen County. We have celebrated many anniversary's, birthdays, and family affairs here at this restaurant for the past 15 years.
