    After being here a number of times, it is safe to say you can blindly order something random on the menu and it will be fantastic. Great for a weekly date night, business lunch/dinner, it is for sure a place to impress your guests! As a restauranteur myself, Il Capriccio is the Gold standard in everything they do from their fresh food, professional service, and even a warm and genuine greeting. Really, nothing comes close.

    Disappointing experience- Was so excited to return after a while and was surprised an aesthetically beautiful restaurant was underwhelming with food and service. Not that busy for dinner but waited literally 30m to order our meal, had an empty drink without reorder for about 15m with no concern, and felt like an aside for a $200+ meal for 2 people. Will not return - so many better options in NJ for great Italian

    I love this restaurant and am a regular customer however I was VERY DISAPPOINTED last night when they had the entire bar and lounge area closed for a.”Private Party”. I had guests with me and had planned to relax a bit before dinner. Instead, there was no place to go but immediately to the table. Someone should have advised me when I made the dinner reservation. Also I have noticed that the dress code has really been diminished. Jeans and t shirts are now apparently acceptable. The code calls for jackets for men. There were only a handful last night . I hope it was a one off problem and not the dumbing down of a former classy upscale Venue.

    By far the best Italian restaurant in the area. When I say by far… I mean no one is even close to this establishment. Monday night and it was packed. You don’t pack a restaurant full on a Monday if you aren’t 5 star. Definitely 5 star. I had the Bronzino and it was excellent! Recommend 1000000%

    I've past your restaurant a 1000 times over the years and said to my wife we have to try it. We finally decided to dine for our Anniversary last night. I shouldn't have been surprised, but all aspects were 1st class. From the Maître De, to the professional waiters, ambience, and most important the food was beyond excellent. I'm sorry it took so long. We will return and become one of your regular diners. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
