Our entire experience was flawless - from the gracious greeting upon arrival, to the assistance with wine selection, to the presentation of the food, to the Happy Birthday tribute to my husband, to the unrushed service that permitted us to enjoy the occasion for three hours. The food was perfect. Highly recommended.

Il Capriccio is always a fine dining experience, and the service and attentiveness of the staff is second to none. Especially enticing are the specials, which vary regularly, but always include a fresh seafood entrée, or a superior cut of beef or lamb for the heartier appetite. Live piano music sets the scene for a relaxing and wonderful evening. We have been coming back for over 14 years because it is consistently excellent Italian cooking.

The service and ambiance are second-to-none. Dennis our waiter is fantastic and makes the best Caesar Salad from scratch you will ever have. Every dish is better than the next and it's so hard to choose. I highly recommend Il Capriccio for a very romantic evening....

The food was excellent, well-prepared, tasty and served properly. Our waiter, Nubile was very attentive and catered to the needs of our group of nine. Our table was perfect, in a separate area of restaurant which was great because it was relatively quiet and as a family group we could speak without shouting. Ambiance of room was quite nice as well. Piano player added additional class. I requested a large, round table and that is just what we got.

We had an appetizer special, grilled octopus over lentils, which was out of this world. We both had fish entrees and enjoyed our meals. The atmosphere is lovely, very nice for a date or special occasion. Our waiter, Dennis, was very attentive, as was the entire staff and made for a wonderful evening. It is a little pricey, but we will definitely be back soon for a special celebration.

The experience was AWESOME, the service was excellent , the atmosphere was magnificent. This restaurant covers all extremes from romantic to business. My guest enjoyed it so much they had me arrange another gathering there for those that missed the first experience. I dine out often this experience exceeded all of my expectations.
From the time we drove up and were met by the most courteous Valet. We didn't have to wait for our seating, they were waiting on us, and made us feel welcome immediately. Anyone looking for that special place, II Capriccio is a must.

There is nothing not to like at Il Cappricio! The food is excellent (well beyond excellent!), and the atmosphere is perfect. What I go back for again and again though is the beautiful music provided by Mark Ganni--a magnificent pianist whose music adds to the ambiance of the restaurant. He moves a nice evening to a whole other level of enjoyment.

A big hank you to Mark and the owners, management, and staff at Il Cappricio!

Outstanding presentation. High end restaurant. Don’t expect to find the usual Italian dishes that are on popular eateries. Sides must be ordered separately. Beautiful interior with art work painted on the ceiling.

I return to ‘il capriccio every time I’m in or near Morristown. Great food, especially the seafood salad, no greens just seafood, and notable wine list served by a great bartender Beck. Worth a visit.

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.

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.
