I haven't been here in many years when I thought it was mostly a pricey expense account place with mediocre food. But last nights visit showed me differently. This place is on par with best in NY with superb menu choices and expertly and authentically prepared most southern Italian dishes. Three of had as many fish main courses and they... More

This is an excellent Italian restaurant. Although a little pricey, the food is well worth the cost for a special dinner. I had a meal with lobster, prawns, scallops and mushrooms that was fantastic. The wait staff is impeccable.

Went to Il Capriccio as a small group of 4. Great wine list. Fish was excellent and fresh tasting. The service and presentation were very high class. I was not very impressed with the dessert. It looked great but flavor and consistency of apple crumble and tiramisu was just average.

When we arrived, we were seated right away and within seconds of sitting down, a server came to take drink orders. The wine selection is excellent and... More

I've been coming to Il Capriccio's for 20 years and always have a wonderful meal. The decor is "old world Italy", daily specials are delicious, and the staff are so attentive. I always feel special here, and the food is always excellent. Whether it's for a social occasion or just a lovely dinner, you'll leave feeling special.

I invited my co-workers to dine at this restaurant. Not knowing where to take them in Whippany, I searched trip Advisor for help. This was listed as #1 in Whippany. They were very accommodative to the fact that we had extra guests. Their appetizers list had great variety to please folks with a very diverse background. We shared very good... More

This is by far my favorite restaurant. My husband and I used to save this for special occasions, but we love it so much that we try to come every 2-3 months because the food is incredible
