Il Capriccio - NJ
The dress code is Elegant Casual, as jackets are preferred for gentlemen but not required.
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.
We all thought this was the best Italian restaurant we have ever been to.
The restaurant was crowded and very noisy for a mid-week dinner, but the service was extremely attentive, made an excellent suggestion for the wine and the food was exceptional. All in all a very enjoyable experience.
From being greeted by Sal, then moving on to have a drink with the wonderful bartender, Neia, followed by a wonderful meal and service by the waitstaff what else is there to say?
Lovely, old-school, fine dining. The stuffed artichoke hearts are fabulous. The sea bass was fresh and delicious. The desserts are small for the price, but delicious and beautifully plated. Service was EXCELLENT. Large menu. Delicious picked veggies put on table with excellent and very fresh seeded Italian bread. They were very kind to my Mom on her birthday. Would highly recommend. The new bar lounge is beautiful and very comfortable.
Wonderful contemporary menu, unsurpassed service and attention to detail, it’s a step back into past graciousness and timeless excellence... not hip and no need to be
Outstanding in all facets. The food, the staff, the decor and ambiance, the wine, all of this restaurant is perfection.
Best food and best service in area. Fantastic restaurant and my favorite place.
Best Restaurant in NJ! Food and atmosphere was unbelievable.
Excellent as always
The best restaurant around the Morris and Essex counties area . Highly recommended.
Excellent food, service and conversation. We’ll be back!
Bufala Mozzarella and Scrigno di Mare are outstanding. Finnochio salad and Chitarra pasta are very
good but a bit bland. Portions are a bit small and should be larger. Service was excellent. Recommendesd
We have patronized Il Capriccio for years, and needless to say we keep returning due to the excellent service, food, and ambience. You are treated with consideration here, not rushed, the food is a delight to the palette, and served in a truly professional manner which sadly is not seen in very many places any longer. You will be delighted when you dine here. It is well worth the time the money.
IL Capriccio service, menu and ambiance is like you are transported to Italy. Everything about our experience was perfect. Salvatore's knowledge and his help in our menu selections along with pairing of a perfect Italian red made our night.
Restaurant is literally the best. Food and Service are one of a kind!
Excellent as usual.
A special occasion restaurant at it's finest. From the decor to the food and wait staff this is a special place. A comprehensive menu for everyone's taste and our large group tried many of the entrees and they were all well prepared and delicious. The wait staff was attentive without being over bearing. While the prices are slightly on the high side the overall dining experience makes it worth while.
Excellent food and service. Will definitely return!
Excellent food service and ambiance
This is an outstanding restaurant. The food is exceptional. The waiter staff is outstanding. It is an elegant experience. This is a perfect place to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or just a romantic evening. There is a piano player that accompanies the dining. We always get dressed up to this restaurant. It feels right and fits in with the decor and staff dress.
This restaurant was amazing. My boyfriend and I went here for the first time on Wednesday for a date night. This was our first time here and it will not be our last. We loved everything. The decor, the live entertainment, and the food. For an appetizer I selected the meatballs and my boyfriend selected the antipast plate. The meatballs were delicious! I will definitely order these again, the anti-pasta plate was just OK - nothing special. For our dinner choices my boyfriend chose the crusted lamb chops and I chose the skirt steak. Both were delicious and marinated to perfection. For dessert we ordered the chocolate mousse cake and the cannoli. The cake was delicious, My cannoli was just OK. The service was outstanding. We would recommend this place to a friend.
Service seems to suffer when they are a little busy. Not enough waiters. Food is always great.
Wonderful menu, excellent wine list, friendly, attentive and helpful service! Always a pleasure to dine at I’l Capriccio!
excellent service, great food, and great atmosphere. Seemed pretty crowded to me but not too crowded or noisy. Seems like a poppular lunch place for a business luncheon.
Great food, terrific service. Best Canolli I have ever tried on both sides of the Atlantic.
As always Il Capriccio does an outstanding job in both meal choice, preparation and presentation. The food is delicious and satisfies all tastes. The service is friendly and exceptional. The attention to detail is outstanding. Tony, the executive chef and owner mingles with the guests in the dining room making you feel truly welcome and at the same time keeping an eye on the dining room and the staff ensuring that everything is operating at peak efficiency.
Favorite restaurant in all of NJ! Food is nothing short of amazing. Quality. My favorite item is the Dover Sole, call ahead if you want to insure they have it. Sells out all the time. Now I call the day before and have them hold one for me. Table side presentation in itself is great too.
great cocktails, service was excellent, seafood stew was excellently prepared. Very popular place even on a Monday night!
Il Capriccio is always a great night out for my wife and I. The staff is the best as is the wine and food. Really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. My wife loves the short ribs and seafood and even though I am veterinarian, I am always accommodated. Can't wait to go back.
My husband and I attended El Capriccio for our 20th anniversary celebration dinner. The staff was very friendly however quite frazzled throughout the evening. The flavors of the food were outstanding as always. His service was not as seamless as in the past.
However overall, experience was.
Amazing food and delightful service!!!! Consistently a great experience.
Beautiful ambiance and great service! The Bada Bing bourbon cocktail was amazing.
Neia is the most welcoming and best bartender out there. The food and service is wonderful. If you have not had the opportunity to go it is a must.
Excellent venue for fine dining with a flare! Loved the live music via the pianist too! Entrees were awesome!
Beautiful restaurant, perfect for a very special occasion. Food is delicious, fresh and prepared thoughtfully. The service is very attentive and you are made to feel special.
A restaurant does not get to be named a best NJ restaurant for more than 30 consecutive years without paying attention to detail. My friend and I meet here a few times a year since it is half way between us. We have done this for perhaps 20 years and never been disappointed. The service is simply first class and the food is off the charts good.
Wonderful food and impeccable service, as always. Love the ambiance
