This place never disapoints, had an important business lunch and it is really the only high quality place open for a such an event. Some wine and ordering a few special apps to share and then some pasta and a main course - an amazing simple pasta dish was prepared table side. This place rates a 10 out of 10 every single time - Sal the Maitre D always adds his personal touch to make it even more memorable.

If it is a special meal or outing you are after, Il Capriccio is the place to come to. The entire staff is here to provide you with a memorable experience. The food is always prepared with care and is unfailingly delicious. It is presented and served with professionalism that sadly is getting more difficult to find. The wine steward, Salvatore knows his business and is always ready to assist to in selecting from the list. You will never go wrong when you dine here.

Atmosphere is very nice, however the food was not on par with the price point. I found the special appetizer to be mediocore. It was a buratta, tomato and carpaccio salad. The sliced tomato was not ripe and was hard. The beef carpaccio was thick and not tender. We also had a meatball appetizer that lacked flavor. Our meals were very good. We had the special rigatoni amatriciana and the Halibut.

Lovely, old-school, fine dining. The stuffed artichoke hearts are fabulous. The sea bass was fresh and delicious. The desserts are small for the price, but delicious and beautifully plated. Service was EXCELLENT. Large menu. Delicious picked veggies put on table with excellent and very fresh seeded Italian bread. They were very kind to my Mom on her birthday. Would highly recommend. The new bar lounge is beautiful and very comfortable.

Bufala Mozzarella and Scrigno di Mare are outstanding. Finnochio salad and Chitarra pasta are very
good but a bit bland. Portions are a bit small and should be larger. Service was excellent. Recommendesd

We have patronized Il Capriccio for years, and needless to say we keep returning due to the excellent service, food, and ambience. You are treated with consideration here, not rushed, the food is a delight to the palette, and served in a truly professional manner which sadly is not seen in very many places any longer. You will be delighted when you dine here. It is well worth the time the money.

A special occasion restaurant at it's finest. From the decor to the food and wait staff this is a special place. A comprehensive menu for everyone's taste and our large group tried many of the entrees and they were all well prepared and delicious. The wait staff was attentive without being over bearing. While the prices are slightly on the high side the overall dining experience makes it worth while.

This is an outstanding restaurant. The food is exceptional. The waiter staff is outstanding. It is an elegant experience. This is a perfect place to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or just a romantic evening. There is a piano player that accompanies the dining. We always get dressed up to this restaurant. It feels right and fits in with the decor and staff dress.

This restaurant was amazing. My boyfriend and I went here for the first time on Wednesday for a date night. This was our first time here and it will not be our last. We loved everything. The decor, the live entertainment, and the food. For an appetizer I selected the meatballs and my boyfriend selected the antipast plate. The meatballs were delicious! I will definitely order these again, the anti-pasta plate was just OK - nothing special. For our dinner choices my boyfriend chose the crusted lamb chops and I chose the skirt steak. Both were delicious and marinated to perfection. For dessert we ordered the chocolate mousse cake and the cannoli. The cake was delicious, My cannoli was just OK. The service was outstanding. We would recommend this place to a friend.
