Always love going to Il Capriccio. It never fails to be a memorable experience--whether we are celebrating a special occasion or just looking forward to a dinner out-- and my latest visit was no exception. Il Capriccio is elegant. The food is always delicious, and the service is outstanding (I have never had better service anywhere). And, I love, love, love the background piano music which adds to the ambiance. Overall, I can just say that our experience at Il Capriccio is always exceptional--and I always begin to think about when I will be able to return as I leave the restaurant!

I would give Il Capriccio more than five stars if I could.

What a find. Gorgeous Italian food, impeccable service. They had a full house on a Thursday night. Prices are a bit high. But if they keep up with the consistent service who will mind?

Great place, have been there many times. This time it was a business dinner.

Great food and wine. Ask Salvatore to pick a wine if you're sure. They have a lot of inexpensive bottles of which you have likely never hear.

The service is stellar.

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.
