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.

Il Capriccio was always very good; under new ownership, it has gotten even better. Food is well prepared and dishes are well delicious. Wine list is good, guidance on the list excellent. Wait staff is experienced and very nice, the best part of the experience. And the new space is very comfortable, open and airy. Well done.

They need a rear entrance from the parking lot. One of my guests cancelled because it was too cold to walk around to the front entrance.
They also waste valuable window space by locating the dishwashing and food prep areas in front of a window!! A rear entrance and small bar could go there.

Best food, best service, best ambiance of anyplace that we’ve been in many months. Everything our party of six ordered was presented beautifully and tasted out of this world! Cannot say enough about the excellent service. We will certainly be back sooner than later! Il Capriccio is a superior restaurant in every sense of the word.

Some dishes like the soufflé porcini were excellent but others such as the pasta and main dishes were just good and not at the level of a top Boston restaurant.

The Service is excellent - could not ask for better. The food is a mixed bag; some of the dishes were very good, and I would not hesitate to order them again. Others were poorly executed and flavorless. The restaurant is very expensive, however, you do not get what you pay for.

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.
