From beginning to end, we had a wonderful experience. The restaurant has such a lovely setting, so nice to have a pianist playing a lot of old favorites, the wait staff was exceptional, and the food was just amazing. We will definitely return.

Il Capricio has amazing food!! Other pluses are the welcoming, gracious wait staff, live piano music, and the ambiance. We went to celebrate my birthday, and my son's birthday. All of our entrees exceeded our expectations, as did the beet salad, dessert and cappuccino. Although it is pricey to eat there, it is worth it for a special occasion!!! Looking forward to the next time we can go!

I must say that the food was simply incredible! This is the real deal when it comes to true, authentic Italian. The specials truly reflect the amount of time and effort this place dedicates to the experience for the customer.

The service, however, could use some improvement. We waited over 30 minutes to get our bill and the restaurant was about half full. Once the coffee and desert arrived, our waiter disappeared. In fact we never saw him again in the restaurant. The Maitre D had to be asked to get our bill.

The ambiance and service were outstanding. We first had cocktails at the bar which were great and the bartender was fabulous, when we were seated at our table we all thought the service was great. We tried to order some wine that we love and we were directed to buy a “similar “ wine that was so far off mark it was offensive. Food came , all were recommended by the server two were sub par third was awful. I never leave a bad review but for the price, expected a lot more. Tried it, probably won’t be back any time soon.

Over the past dozen years, I have enjoyed lunch and dinner at what I consider to be the finest Italian restaurant, bar none, on many an occasion. A variety of dishes to satisfy the most demanding palates. The food quality is exquisite, the portions generous, the plating artful and attentively served by impeccable wait teams. Already looking forward to my next trip to Morris county next spring!

Hi, I am a chef so I know food and it's preparation. One of the best meals I have had in NJ, was last week at Il Capriccio. This place has it all: warmth, great service, beautiful atmosphere and delicious creative food. There were 3 of us willing to share which enabled us to taste many dishes. All were wonderful but an outstanding favorite was the grilled salmon special. It was, in fact, the best salmon dish I have ever had.
Go there to celebrate, on a date, to impress someone or just because you are wanting a fantastic meal. You will not be disappointed.

The food and wait staff were quite good, although they didn't acknowledge the special event I had indicated in the reservation. It's not really helpful to ask if you're dining at a restaurant for a special occasion and then not mention it at the dinner.

One of the elegant, superb Italian restaurants. I drove 20 miles to go there for my birthday dinner. This restaurant offers expansive Italian menu, a wide collection of fish and great side dishes. My red snapper dish was superb. The best potato side dish ever!!! Service is superb and pricing very competitive for the class of this restaurant.

You will be hard pressed to find a better restaurant. The staff go out of their way to ensure that each diner is personally attended to and has his/her needs met. We are regular diners there and have never been disappointed. The food is simply outstanding, and the wine list is extensive and top notch. I cannot give this restaurant a higher recommendation; it is the best of the best!

One of our favorites. We have been here many times and most of the staff know us. Can't go wrong here. Great for business dinners or for impressing a date. Impressive Northern Italian cuisine presented by folks who have been doing this for a long time, really know what they are doing and have been recognized for their expertise. Great atmosphere, great service, great food. I have gotten many of the appetizers and entrees here over the years. This time I went with the cold seafood salad dragoncello and the veal chop.
Awesome choices. My wife loves the veal osso bucco and they do it really good here. They are undergoing renovations limiting their capacity but it didn't have any impact on our experience. What are you waiting for?

My husband and I went there for dinner to celebrate our anniversary. The food and service were excellent. There was a live pianist throughout the meal which added to the ambience of the restaurant. The restaurant is undergoing a renovation project and I was impressed how the staff went out of their way to ensure the renovation did not in any way interfere with our enjoyment of our evening. I would recommend this restaurant for a special occasion without hesitation.
