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.

Il cappriccio catered our wedding in 1992
We were visiting Boston and decided to go there with our boys for dinner.
It was wonderful. Delicious food and a very pleasant atmosphere. It is definitely the place for a special occasion but it is also great for going if you just want a great meal. Very good service without being pretentious .
I had the seared scallops and monkfish
The risotto with lobster was wonderful
We shared two appetizers, the boar sausage and the gnocchi with clams and Stuffed Calamari were very good
Our younger son who is picky was offered a linguine with tomato sauce which he loved
Desserts were a carmelized pear tart with pumpkin ice cream and a warm chocolate
Dessert with mint ice cream.
I do not know much about wines and I am the only one in the family who drinks. The waiter suggested a glass of bubbling white wine which I thoroughly enjoyed
Than you il cappriccio for a very enjoyable evening.

Only bad thing was the bread, the food and wine menu are impeccable and the service was good. We had the Gnocchi and Lobster risotto along with the Tuna Tartar and everything was delicious.

We have been going happily to Il Capriccio for years, and we are certain we have never had a disappointing meal there. Richie, the chef owner, is uniformly generous and always insures both perfect service and perfect preparations. The menu does not change enormously, but always offers a nice variety and every entree is worth a visit. The staff has worked there loyally for years and always gives good advice. They have an outstanding Italian wine selection. You cannot have a disappointing meal here.

Il Capriccio has long been our favorite restaurant in Boston. The food has been consistently amazing and the service is very attentive. We find the restaurant great for romantic dinners for two, grabbing a quick bite at the bar, or reserving the downstairs private room for small groups.

Went to their 'Local Harvest Dinner' - excellent menu featuring local suppliers. Delicious, great service. Was very crowded, so a bit noisy and bustling.
Perhaps best to go on a regular night for a more relaxed atmosphere.
