When you dine here you always have a superb dining experience. You are treated in a special manner by all of the staff, that have refined customer service to an art. The food is exquisitely prepared, and the selections available make it difficult for you to decide what you will enjoy. It takes much thought to finally select your entire meal. The wine list is extensive, and excellent. If you are unsure as to what to order, call on Salvatore for assistance, and he will guide you. I cannot recommend this place enough. The family who owns and operates the restaurant knows what it wants, and how a restaurant should be run, and it is translated into reality. I highly recommend it.

Il Capriccio met all of my expectations. Have never had better food, and the attentive staff added to my enjoyment of the evening. Having Mark play the piano really enhanced our evening (Thank you Mark).

The restaurant is on the pricey side, but worth every penny!

Thanks to all!!

We met our in-laws there for a belated birthday dinner for my brother-in-law, My husband and I arrived early and had a drink at the bar. The bartender was pleasant, apologizing for keeping us a few minutes, while he finished with another couple. Our mixed drinks were perfect and served with a smile and friendly chatter. The others at the bar were friendly. We went to the table when the other couple arrived and our drinks were brought to us with grace. Service was excellent. The crowd is mainly middle to upper middle aged and there were LOTS of birthdays and anniversaries that night. Lovely piano music accompanies your meal and the food is excellent. I had the filet, which was a little undercooked for my request but, the meal was a little unique and quite tasty. My husband and brother-in-law wanted Veal Parmesan, which was not on the menu but, the waiter had it made for them. My sister-in-law had the salmon, which she loved and, we all brought home leftovers for lunch the next day. I will also give special mention to the meatball appetizer which was DELICIOUS and, was separately plated so each of us got one meatball from the 2 appetizer orders. Our waiter could not have been more pleasant nor more eager to service us impeccably. The décor is the same as I remember from many years ago, when I was there on business. Very classic Italian. Nice space at your table and good space between tables. Our second time there within a year and, we will go again. It is not a cheap night out but, we enjoyed everything and felt it was worth the price.

I picked this restaurant out from the NJ Top 50 restaurant list for my wife's birthday. I put in the OpenTable reservation that it was my wife's birthday. They remembered and brought a candle and sang happy birthday. My first time here. I'd go back in a heartbeat. Very nice with very good service. Excellent food.

Il Capriccio is our favorite restaurant. We spend every New Year's Eve there with close friends. My birthday dinner is always @Il Capriccio. Our recent visit this past Saturday night was a joint celebration of our 35th Anniversary and our daughter's 30th birthday. The Grande's treat us like family.

We had a retirement lunch with 12 colleagues and the food was absolutely amazing. Portions are a bit small but the quality of food was excellent. We were put in one of the other rooms so it was just us which was very nice. The waiter and waitress were very good and on top of everything. We will be back!

Dining at IL Capriccio is always a wonderful experience. Service, food, cocktails...perfect. Tonight I had the veal ossobucco; spectacular! My wife had the seafood in a "salsa Americana" wonderful as well. You will have a first rate experience each time you dine at IL Capriccio.

Took my wife here to celebrate her retirement.
We eat here at least once or twice a year, and
never have a bad meal.

The service is good and so is the food.
You just have to carefully choose your menu items.

The food & service were fine but if you haven't been here before (I hadn't) be warned that's it has a very old-fashioned vibe. Some may appreciate that, we really didn't. The decor is old-world pastiche; the service is formal, almost stiff; a pianist plays old standards in a not necessarily recognizable way but loud enough, if you're sitting nearby as we were, to impede conversation. Our meals were worth the high prices, but be aware what you're getting yourself into.

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Il Capriccio. Manager Sal and Server Alex did everything to assure that our evening was enjoyable. They succeeded.

The food was delicious. The wine, both the Chardonnay and the Barolo, were outstanding. The ambience was great. The service was superb.

My wife and I will visit Il Capriccio again ... soon.
