Il Capriccio - NJ Ratings and Reviews
One of my favorite restaurants in New Jersey. Haven't been there in a while but was intrigued by new menu items, a lobster risotto and a new preparation of veal rack. I got them both as well as one of my old favorites, the cold seafood salad. All 3 courses were outstanding, the bar service and cocktails are excellent and the service is attentive, courteous and friendly without fawning. I would highly recommend Il Capriccio for a romantic evening, a work or business dinner or a group function.
Fantastic Dining establishment... Everything for a fine dining experience was perfect. I have had (2) gatherings thus far at Il Capriccio's and they will certainly be many more......Perfect place!!! Thank you "BECK" a fantastic mixologist,,,,, Thank you "Andy" and "Mark" both fabulous piano players.......
First time at Il Capriccio and had a terrific dining experience. Service was superb....from the valet to the host to the waiter. All professionals. Very solid wine list with (not surprising...) excellent selections from across all regions of Italy. The food was quite good and the way the dining room is set up there really did not appear to be any 'bad' tables. Great feel to the room. We will definately be back.
I've been going to Il Capriccio since they opened in 1984. They NEVER disappoint. They are still one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. Their consistency on quality, service and attention to detail puts them in a category with a select few. Sal handles the front like an orchestra leader and is in constant motion, but never too busy to smile, stop by and chat. I live further away now, but it is more than worth the drive to go! They are the gold standard!
We had another wonderful evening at Il Capriccio. The staff is extremely professional and accommodating. For example, the Caesar salad prepared table side was a nice touch even though it wasn’t even on the menu. The steak was flavorful and cooked to perfection, better than most pretentious steak houses in the area, and the seafood pasta was incredible. Tony Grande and his staff know how to run a restaurant and we continue to look to Il Capriccio for special occasions or just a special night out. The piano player is excellent and adds to the ambiance as well.
It is our restaurant of choice for any occasion. This time it was our 55th anniversary. The time before was New Year's Eve. Food is always delicious, service is always gracious and attentive , wine list selection well rounded.
You will NOT be disappointed when dining here. The food, service and ambienance are always top notch. The staff in all areas are dedicated to ensuring that you have a wonderful experience. The pasta is superlative, the fish fresh and tasty, the desserts delicious. We keep coming back with good reason and so will you.
This was our 12th year celebrating the Holiday season at Il Capriccio in Whippany, NJ. The food, service and hospitality was excellent, the décor was festive, and the live piano music set the perfect backdrop for a romantic holiday evening.
Start your own tradition, and join in the fun. See you there soon ;-)
The price to go here is not worth it. The evening was fine. Food was good, atmosphere ok, but for the price not worth it. There are many local options that have better food, more attentive service and a more pleasant atmosphere for about the same price. We came on a night where the restaurant had two large parties that devoured the attention of the staff and made the ambiance tough. It was the not intimate special occasion (birthday) experience we envisioned. This was too bad as we had the same experience at this restaurant a few years ago and tried to give them another shot. We won't be back.
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!!
