It was a great experience ! We sat at the (newly remodeled) bar for a drink prior to dinner. We requested a table outside, but before they sat us outside, they suggested we take a look to make sure that is where we wanted to sit. And thank goodness we did, as we much preferred the inside. Dinner was wonderful and the service was outstanding from the entire staff. Looking forward to my next visit!

We went for our daughters birthday. Manila was our waiter and we couldn’t have been happier. His knowledge, humor, attentiveness and efficiency made our dinner memorable. The food was first class . Definitely will be back.

Always great.

The food is always fresh and well prepared. I had Jersey tomatoes and onion salad to start, a small bowl of pasta, and grilled red snapper with olives, clams and shrimp as my entree. Ice cream to finish.

Great wines, and one of the few places where you can trust them to “surprise” you with a great wine that’s not expensive.

Service is outstanding.

Looks great since the renovation.

Great experience from the time you walk in until you leave.

I have been to Il Capriccio on the average four times per year over the last five years and it has been very good. However in the last couple of months in which I have been there twice it has gone from very good to excellent. This is an excellent restaurant.

Far better than other restaurants I have eaten at.

This is my upscale place to visit and impress a client for an impeccable dining experience. I have been coming here for over the past 12 years and its consistency over that time span underscores just how fabulous this establishment is. For exquisite Italian fare in North Jersey, it's simply nonpareil.

Il Capriccio never disappoints. An outstanding professional staff, beautiful ambiance, and great food is the norm. Each of our four diners ate something different and each commented on how good it was. Our waiter, Dennis, was a consummate server and the various bus-people were top notch. Even if I tried to find something to complain about, I couldn't. The place was crowded yet none of the big crowd distractions infringed on our conversation or dining pleasure.

For more than 30 years Il Capriccio has been one of the very best restaurants in NJ.Such consistency simply is not often found in the restaurant business Yes, it is expensive but you never leave not feeling you got your money's worth. The service is outstanding. Efficient and attentive without being over bearing.

We love Il Capriccio and don’t go nearly enough. This is THE place for high end gourmet Italian food without traveling to New York City. The atmosphere is elegant, the service is absolutely first rate and the food...perfection. The only thing which is not perfect (but it is authentic) is that the dishes on the menu are in Italian and not English, so if you are not Italian (I am German) you have to read the description (which is in English) to figure out what everything is. This is really not an issue, except that very often I have to point to items on the menu to order so that I don’t mispronounce every other word! Seriously, this place is awesome and the price, although a bit high, is worth it.

Always love going to Il Capriccio. It never fails to be a memorable experience--whether we are celebrating a special occasion or just looking forward to a dinner out-- and my latest visit was no exception. Il Capriccio is elegant. The food is always delicious, and the service is outstanding (I have never had better service anywhere). And, I love, love, love the background piano music which adds to the ambiance. Overall, I can just say that our experience at Il Capriccio is always exceptional--and I always begin to think about when I will be able to return as I leave the restaurant!

I would give Il Capriccio more than five stars if I could.

Great place, have been there many times. This time it was a business dinner.

Great food and wine. Ask Salvatore to pick a wine if you're sure. They have a lot of inexpensive bottles of which you have likely never hear.

The service is stellar.
