Italian
Il Capriccio serves a constantly changing Northern Italian menu featuring local products with an award winning Italian wine and Grappa list. Though long considered a local secret, Il Capriccio has been the number one Northern Italian restaurant in Zagat's for the past seven years. The wine list has been featured in Decanter, Sante, Wine & Spirits and Stuff. The same menu is served in the Bar. We like to serve great food and great wine in a comfortable setting. For peace of mind in Covid time, our three brand new, state-of-the art, Mitsubishi air handlers employ MERV Level 13 filtration, just one step down from an operating theatre.

The food was delicious. Our server was friendly and knowledgable about the menu and made recommendations. The initial contact from our server took a little longer than I like but after that everything went along seamlessly. The bolognese and veal scaloppini were perfect in taste and preparation. We will definitely be back. The new location was a welcome change.

The risotto this month, with butternut squash and braised lamb, was outstanding! Wouldn't mind if it remained for a while, but I'm sure that next month's one will also be delicious. Never been disappointed.

A truly Very Good all Around Restaurant. The Service is excellent and the food choices are plentiful and always good! On our previous 2 visits we had Mussels, Scungelli stuffed with clams and Veal and Fish Specials, and they were all Excellent!
The wine list by the glass and bottles is plentiful and very reasonably priced.
We will definitely be back and soon!

Capriccio is a warm and inviting restaurant which offers impeccable service. You will not feel hurried. Capriccio's menu has variety. All our choices were excellent. I had a mozzarella and pepper appetizer and my friend had mussels. My entree was the tastiest swordfish I've ever had. It was paired with lentils and cauliflower. One friend had venison and the other lobster/shrimp ravioli. Three satisfied diners resulted. The meals were accompanied by crusty bread rolls. We also ordered drinks which did not disappoint. I had a martini and one friend a negroni. We shred a semi-freddo dessert. I would definitely return. It's high end but reasonable and the food is first rate. Lots of parking behind the restaurant and I noted a patio for warmer weather.

Glad to have returned to indoor dining. I was torn between the scallop special or the risotto; I decided on the scallops. They were excellent, and the sweet potato puree that came with it was delicious. I will have to return this month for the risotto, as their risottos are always good.

We were fans of the old restaurant, so looked forward eagerly to its new incarnation.
Dining the second day it was open was a bit of a let-down; didn't seem to have the old spark.
But now it's BACK. Namely, creative dishes. I had calamari stuffed with clams, something I'd never seen before. Pasta also excellent.

We had a very pleasurable experience. Vincent was our waiter. He was fabulous. Vinny was knowledgeable and courteous and friendly. We enjoyed our food thoroughly. The price was comparable for what we had. It was our anniversary dinner and Vinny made it extra special for us. We will definitely be going back again.

It was a special meal, but I should have ordered more carefully, especially as I'm thinking about having a largish birthday dinner there. (I've had b'day dinners there before.) My dinner companions loved their meals a little more than I did.

First time at the NEW Il Capriccio
We ended up in a small private room so I cannot speak to the noise level or vibe in the general space but the food was great!
Mushroom soufflé still awesome and the chicken schnitzel was delish. The beet salad and melon and prosciutto were both good but not very special
Great bread!!! Veal scallopini and risotto were both excellent
The crispy pork on the risotto really made it!!!
They could probably stand to add another main or 2, for pickier diners, but it was fine for our party of 5
I Look forward to going back!

Wonderful for many years and quay continues with new owner. Had an appetizer, split a salad and then had small pasta. Plenty of food. The porcini duffle as always was delicious and the pasta carbonara with guanciale and pancetta was the best I have ever had.

Excellent service with ample, unobtrusive attention; extraordinary wine list with fantastic, albeit somewhat expensive, wines, and, most importantly, wonderful food. There is plenty of nearby parking.
