    The service was impeccable. Old school all male servers who were all very attentive but women would also be just as attentive if they were also part of the service. All meals were perfect along with the portion size. Just perfect which was satisfying without having to worry about leftovers. Enjoyed every single bite to to last. Highly recommend for every aspect. Can be a special occasion destination or even for a more casual experience.

    Food was bland service was great. Seafood salad and tuna crudo were bland. Both fish were cooked well the sides were a bit of a let down. The broccoli rabe and cannellini beans served with the Chilean sea bass left much to be desired.

    The staff was amazing. The food was disappointing. The amount of protein to pasta was way off. One baby lobster tail and 5 or 6 clams for a whole dish of pasta at 38 dollars was hardly value for the money. Even the unseasoned broccoli rabe was 15 dollars as a separate side dish. The service is what saves the place.

    Once again Il Capriccio meets the mark with outstanding food and service. Although prices have risen, they have done so minimally. The food continues to be delicious and is served with a flair not seen in very many places today unfortunately. It is no wonder that the restaurant is a favorite not just for me, but for all those who appreciate a fine meal.

    Our absolutely favorite restaurant in NJ! The service is outstanding! Staff are extremely professional and friendly. Authentic delicious Italian dishes. We’ve been going to this restaurant since we me 20 years ago for special occasions, date, family dinners, lunch. Their consistently is unparalleled. Pasta is always cooked to perfection! Variety of fresh fish cooked to perfection and tender juicy meat dishes. In addition to their great menu always quite a few specials. Their Veal Osso Buco is absolutely amazing! My favorite appetizer is stuffed artichoke heart and fennel salad. Owner actually has a vegetable garden and during a season you get to experience the most delicious produce, incorporated in their dishes. Dress up when you go there, because the restaurant is beautiful on an inside! Always fresh cut, beautifully arranged flowers in the centerpiece vase, gorgeous tapestries and paintings and custom painted ceiling. No other restaurant compares to this one food or interior wise. They have an impressive wine list and big variety of spirits at the bar, which is also beautiful with their very comfortable but sophisticated lounge area. Private rooms if you want a very private dinner. And amazing piano player on the weekends.
