In all honesty, the reason we visited on a Saturday evening in order to enjoy a performance of some friends that were providing musical entertainment. This is a restaurant with 2 separate rooms and separate menu styles. This is a well-established Italian restaurant but, they also, offer Brazilian Rodizio meat entrees. We started with the Spiedino Alla Romana (Mozzarella, capers... More

What follows is a 'copy/paste' from a review I wrote last Summer. (August) We've been here before years ago and as best as I can remember we enjoyed Il Cafone very much. Now it's gotten even better! For one, they've added a rodizio option as well as a full bar. Yes, they still allow BYOB and I'm not sure how... More

A great night with friends who hadn't seen each other in quite a while. We love Il Cafone and always go there for our get togethers. We love the Early Bird Specials and BYOB. The staff and food are always good.

Dinner with the wife. For appetizer, she ordered the arugula salad with crispy chicken, I had the calamari. The salad came with a vinaigrette dressing that was disappointing. The chunks of chicken tasted more like fried fatty pork nuggets. The calamari was greasy. We went for seafood for the main course: grilled salmon and fillet of sole. Both entrees were... More

Il Cafone is our favorite restaurant. The food is excellent and the portions are big. The price is right. They even have a sunset special for $19.95 between 5 and 7pm Mon. thru Fri. A must try

After driving by so many times we finally made the decision to go for dinner. On street parking is close to impossible, we parked a block away & walked.Once seated, we did find out that there is a parking area behind the restaurant. Driving north on Ridge Rd. you will not see it,it is on the Rutherford Ave side (... More

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
