Il Capriccio was a pleasant surprise for my fiance and I. We walked by it the other night while on a pub crawl, and at the same time said we should try that place. Fast forward 4 nights and we arrive for our 8:30 reservation half an hour early. The hostess (very pleasant) seats us in the corner at a double, and we are surrounded by loud groups of 4-6 people. We decide to grab the menu's and make the trek to the bar. It was a lot more quiet, more spacious, and we had the opportunity to discuss the wine list with Jason, the in house wine guru. We ordered the 09 Gaja Promis ($85), which is a steal compared to Grill 23 ($120) and The Capital Grille ($115). After the wine was opened and we let it breath, Jason reccomended the zuchinni (spelling?) stuffed flowers, and the wild boar sausage. The sausage was amazing, and is made in house! After our appetizers we ordered the Vermont wild rabbit ravioli in a porcini sauce. Some of the best tasting raviolis I have had on this side of the Atlantic. We were going to order dinner, but were both full from the great food and even better wine. If you are in Waltham, or do not want to make the trip and pay for parking in the North End, Il Capriccio is definitely worth trying!
