Il Capriccio is fantastic! The food is delicious, service excellent, our favorite is Nick, and the entire dining experience is great. We drive over an hour to get there and it is well worth it. My favorite is the veal osso buco, and the homemade cannoli, so good. If you want a great Italian meal, they will not disappoint. Bellisima!

My husband,18 year old son and myself arrived in Whippany early evening after a long drive from Cape Cod. We were looking forward to a nice dinner before taking our son to his University Orientation where he will spend the next four years.

The dining in Whippany seems pretty limited. We chose this Italian Restaurant. We looked at the website and it looked like an ok dining experience in the area. After reviewing the website after being denied service, I found no reference to 'dress code'.

I was wearing a J.Crew ensemble with pricey shoes and expensive jewelry. My husband and son were clean and dressed well but not in collared shirts or pants. We parked our vehicle for valet, the valet took our keys, opened the door and showed us a sign about no shorts. This should be more prominent on the website if it is there at all.

The valet was rude and as we were leaving let us know this was a 'nice' restaurant and we should have known better.

This is the first time in our lives we have been denied entrance to a restaurant. We have lived overseas for 30 years and travelled all over the world. We have eaten in restaurants that would make this seem like a low end meal.

For our anniversary last year we were in a very nice restaurant in Houston that had a dress code of 'no shorts'. We did adhere to that as it was mentioned to us when I made the reservation. But that high end restaurant appreciated customer service more and when some 'walk in' customers came in shorts, they served them.

This is our youngest of three we are putting in college. In the towns where our older daughters went, we established a rapport with local restaurants for the many visits to the area in the coming years.

I can guarantee that this establishment has lost our business for the next four years.

You can't go wrong with a visit to Il Capriccio... From the service, to the food and the atmosphere, everything together makes for a perfectly amazing experience. Whether you are there for a special occasion, or just a regular Saturday night, you are treated as if it's a special day to be enjoyed and celebrated from start to finish.

This is a very nice night out. More formal than most places with valet and jackets proffered. Not stuff, but impeccable service. Just a nice night out when you want to get dressed up and hang out with the cast of the Sopranos. When i think of NJ Italian dining i will now think of this place.
