The best Italian in New Jersey. We go about once a year (it is not cheap). The Pasta reminds me of what I get when in Italy. Really really good.

The food was exceptional. The linguine with clam sauce was the best I've had. Short rib and veal parm were excellent. The service was good at first, but got lax at dessert time; it took too long to take our dessert order so we didn't have any. But other than that, the restaurant and atmosphere was great and we really enjoyed our meal. Also, the wine was wonderful. We will return.

Outstanding Italian restaurant, ambience is very warm, elegant. The service was superb and the food was the best Italian food I had in NJ.
A bit pricey on some items but the quality to match.
Highly, highly recommended for a special occasion dinner.

Il Capriccio provides the opportunity to truly enjoy a wonderful experience while dining. If you are fortunate to find Dennis A. as your server, please allow him to make suggestions and follow them; in our last experience there Dennis created our entire meal , no menu necessary, and an outstanding dinner with the honor of having a server such as Dennis who provides the ultimate touch with his recommendations. Il Cappriccio and Dennis A are true gems!!

Il Capriccio never disappoints! We took a family member there after having raved about this restaurant for several years. Her amazement came from the moment she walked in through the dessert. The ambience is comforting, and the wait staff is attentive without hovering. The food selection and preparation are a delight, and even the most sophisticated palate won't be disappointed. The accompanying wine selections will complement any entree and without breaking the bank. Even the parking attendants are pleasant. Worth the journey.

Most enjoyable! The veal Milanese was off the charts, so tender. The tuna was cooked to perfection, it melted in your mouth. One of my favorite restaurants!

Another excellent experience. Food is superb, waiters are friendly and helpful, ambience is nice and patrons are discouraged from looking shabby. This is thankfully not a restaurant where patrons are wearing whatever they picked up at BJ’s warehouse that afternoon. Not inexpensive but, in our opinion, good value for what you spend. We have been here several times and plan to partake many more times.

This place never disapoints, had an important business lunch and it is really the only high quality place open for a such an event. Some wine and ordering a few special apps to share and then some pasta and a main course - an amazing simple pasta dish was prepared table side. This place rates a 10 out of 10 every single time - Sal the Maitre D always adds his personal touch to make it even more memorable.

If it is a special meal or outing you are after, Il Capriccio is the place to come to. The entire staff is here to provide you with a memorable experience. The food is always prepared with care and is unfailingly delicious. It is presented and served with professionalism that sadly is getting more difficult to find. The wine steward, Salvatore knows his business and is always ready to assist to in selecting from the list. You will never go wrong when you dine here.

Atmosphere is very nice, however the food was not on par with the price point. I found the special appetizer to be mediocore. It was a buratta, tomato and carpaccio salad. The sliced tomato was not ripe and was hard. The beef carpaccio was thick and not tender. We also had a meatball appetizer that lacked flavor. Our meals were very good. We had the special rigatoni amatriciana and the Halibut.
