Everything about our meal was great. We had the tuna tartar and the octopus for appetizers and both had swordfish for our main course. It all was fabulous as was the service. We will be going back soon.
Wonderful food and service. This is a very special restaurant.
We've eaten at Il Capriccio at least a dozen times and the food/service is consistently excellent. This time we had the wild mushroom risotto and Icelandic Cod, both delicious. Service has always been first-rate.
This is always a great restaurant; the food is awesome and the service is impeccable!
We selected this restaurant for our anniversary. The restaurant staff welcomed us warmly when we arrived and showed us to a special table for 2 which had been simply and discreetly decorated in honor of our anniversary, which we thought was very thoughtful. Our waiter was exceptional and the food was delicious! We spilt a special appetizer and both had salads and entrees. It was a memorable meal and will definitely be back.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Il Capriccio. Excellent food, excellent service, excellent value. We ordered the fig and burata salad, the grilled lamb chops, and the Icelandic cod. Each was beautifully presented and truly delicious, the ingredients speaking for themselves and without excess salt. Our waitress was attentive, welcoming and friendly. With our coffee at the end of the meal, the best biscotti I've ever eaten came as a complimentary sweet. Thank you!
The food and service are always exceptional! This is my go-to restaurant for a great meal and special occasions
They were amazing with food allergies and the food was delicious!
Fabulous food— many thanks to Jordie for her excellent suggestions and outstanding service (as usual).
Everyone enjoyed everything from start to finish.
Always outstanding! Creative food, incredible Italian wine list, and knowledgeable professional wait staff.
This is a place for very special dinners. We were celebrating our anniversary. Attentive service, lots of good choices on the menu. Unfortunately, my wife's swordfish was slightly overcooked and dry. But the octopus and calamari starter and the tuna and avocado starter were outstanding.
Il Capriccio has been on our list for a while now, and we finally got there for a special birthday celebration. As written in all the reviews, the food is outstanding, including their tasty rustic bread which was great for dipping into every sauce. My husband and I shared the porcini appetizer (it could have served four given its richness & deliciousness), then split a small pasta. He had the seared scallops as his main entree, and I had their chicken schnitzel. Their panna cotta dessert, as recommended by our lovely waiter, was a wonderful way to end our delicious meal. Il Capriccio is a solid restaurant with a professional culinary and wait staff. Our waiter was friendly and attentive throughout our entire meal, but not overly intrusive. You can't go wrong with this restaurant choice for a date night out or a special occasion. Can't wait to return!
The usual excellent job from our favorite restaurant.
I've been enjoying this restaurant for more than 25 years. Does not disappoint! Long service and knowledgeable staff. Ritchie is one of a kind!
I’ll Capriccio never disappoints. Food is always served beautifully, looking like an illustration in a magazine and tasting divine. For a person with a small appetite a choice of two appetizers is perfect. It is a world class restaurant in a suburb with excellent free parking.
Generally quiet until a very loud foursome was seated behind us.
I love Il Capprichio and have for years. The food is wonderful and the staff is so attentive whether you’ve been going to the restaurant for years or it’s your first visit. It won’t be your last. I was watching the staff at dinner and how warm and personal the relationships are with so many guests. It’s an amazing experince.
Best restaurant I have been to and a long time and we go out to dinner a lot! Wonderful celebration for my son’s birthday
Unbelievable, food and service was great, very nice place, only issue was didn’t care for the salad, we put a pasta as an appetizer and it was so good I never had an interest in finishing the salad
As usual everything from start to finish was superb.
Thank you for excellent service and outstanding food.
Enjoyed our dinner very much. The food was so delicious. Very relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommend I’ll Capriccio.
Excellent service, delicious food, lovely touch of spreading heart confetti on table for anniversary celebration. Candle in dessert.....so thoughtful.
Exceptional dining and service from appetizers through dessert
We had an amazing dining experience. Food was incredible and the service was impeccable. We are excited to have discovered a new favorite restaurant and we can’t wait to go back.
Everything was fresh and expertly prepared. I ordered the veal tenderloin (I got two lovely tenderloins, tender and perfectly prepared!) and was able to take an entire one home for lunch the next day. My dining companion's bluefish was wonderful.
I noted on Open Table that this was a birthday dinner. I must admit I was a bit disappointed that Il Capriccio's idea of celebrating a birthday is scattering some party confetti on the dining table. In my experience, upscale restaurants provide some small desert with a candle for the honoree. Another nearby table nearby did receive a birthday dessert with candle - perhaps they ordered it special - and I wish I had.
World class Italian food! Easily amongst Metro Boston's best restaurants and a wine list to match. The porcini soufflé is to die for. Fine Italian dining at its b best!!
Elegant and beautiful ambience, brilliant food, and gracious service. Prices are a bit steep but still a great value since the entrees include wonderful vegetable combinations. Wine list is well-informed, and wine by the glass is top quality.
Simply the best, the food is consistently superb and the service is fantastic. Never a disappointment.
The food was great and the service was wonderful. The gnocchi was delicious and the serving sizes were perfect. Not too little and not too much. It was nice to have a fantastic Italian meal and not feel like to ate way too much at the end of the meal!
Suburban Boston dining that competes with the best that the city itself has to offer. We had veal tenderloin and duck breast, both prepared perfectly, and a wonderful creme brulee for dessert. Portions were quite large. Had several visits here when we lived in the Boston area--it's just as good now years later. Only comment on value is that the portions were larger than we needed but not enough to eat half for take-home. Would rather the portions be a tad smaller and the price reflected accordingly.
Consistently great food! Chef is always visible in restaurant! Servers are great.
Always a welcoming greeting. Service attentive and food outstanding. Our favorite for over 20 years.
Best Italian restaurant in Waltham and the suburbs! Always pleased with their food and service.
Everything at Il Capriccio is consistently wonderful.
The chicken schnitzel was truly memorable. Service was efficient and timely. Il Capriccio continues to live up to its reputation. I haven't been there in a a few years but it was as good as I remember, if not better. Plan to return soon.
Great service. The swordfish was delicious. The choices of wines by the glass were excellent. Highly recommend the Chianti.
A wonderful dining experience from beginning to end. Cuisine was imaginative and delicious. It was for a special occasion and they made us feel special from beginning to end. Highly recommend.
Awesome from start to finish.
Terrific service and wonderful food!
They were so kind when I told them it was my mother’s birthday! We came to confetti on the table and then, even though we said no to dessert because we had cake at home, they brought us biscotti with a candle. The food was really yummy. If you plan to get a small pasta dish as a meal, please do know that if you get the small, it will he really small (in traditional Italian fashion; it would just be another course on the way to the main course) so, I’d recommend the dinner size pastas. We got these delicious food ravioli. They were sooo good, but there were only 3/plate at $18 a plate. Definitely worth it if you want to treat yourself, because everything was yummy!
