Great Service, Excellent Food! – We were headed to Psychobabble in Los Feliz later at night (around 9:45 or so on a weekday), and stopped at Il Capriccio to grab dinner first. Even though the restaurant was almost closed for the night, our server was excellent and accommodating. We split a rotini pasta in red sauce (with delicious mushrooms and eggplant), which was served promptly and brought to us already split on two separate plates (with no charge for splitting). And truly, a single serving was enough for both of us. The meal was at a perfect temperature, great flavor, and the vegetables were very fresh.
Also, we were served fresh bread with olive oil dipping sauce almost immediately after we ordered, and they replaced the basket for us with our dinner. The waiter was friendly and prompt with drink refills.
All in all, I highly recommend the restaurant. It was crowded late on a weekday night, so I'm not sure how easy it is to get a table on the weekend. The only con of the place was that some of their dishes take a little while to prepare, so that close to closing, there were several chicken plates that were no longer available. The pasta we ate was perfect, though, and we'll definitely be back again soon.
High Quality Italian in L.A. with well above average wait staff – The only thing to note is to BYOB which is fine for me; because I get to bring my own favorite.
There really isn't anything to complain about this place. Food is resonable priced, it has a friendly decor, it's pretty romantic. A+ all the way. I will dine again very soon.
Excellent food, staff, service, price ;) Bon Appetit.
The true taste of Italy in L.A. – This is hands down the best Italian food in L.A. My family comes from Napoli and this is the food I grew up on. Good hearty Italian dishes. You know the old saying 'no one cooks as good as mom' is true, but this just makes me want to have two moms! The atmosphere is cozy, with a friendly and lively ambiance. The seating is quaint, yet packed, so expect to be rubbing elbows with neighbors. However, this isn't intrusive or a drawback, it gives more of a family style dinner atmosphere. It's just as great for a romantic dinner, although you may want to be seated outside. The staff is very nice and easy to get along with. Make sure to get to know Mama Flora, you'll understand exactly why I say you'll wish you had two moms. The food is excellent and the prices are almost a steal for the quality you are getting. I haven't had a dish there yet that I haven't liked and that's really hard to say for some places, but here it's true. It can get crowded so make reservations. You can bring your own wine or choose from their selection. I highly recommend Il Capriccio if your on a date, it's proximity to the Silver Lake night life makes a great way to start your night. Buon appetito!
Warmest Italian Service Around – While the food was standard "good" Italian - nice cuts of chicken and veal in buttery flavorful sauces next to al dente pasta - it was the service that made this experience worth it. Our waiter took all required steps (and more) to make sure we were stuffed, satisfied, and smiling all throughout dinner. I recommend waiting for a patio seat - they are limited but the stylish passerbys give it a real Venitian vibe.
Totally Worth the Trip – They were slammed but the service as great. Servers were friendly and attentive.
Food was great and reasonably priced. Going back for more - soon.
That's Italian! – Finally, a place that know how to make pasta!!! It's actually Al Dente!
cozy italian – a friend and i celebrated our dual birthdays at il capriccio. the service was great, everyone was very friendly, but not overbearing. the food was pretty standard italian, nothing mind blowing. the place reminds me of those cozy joints that you find all over the place in boston, philly and nyc.
Perfect Place Near the Greek Theatre – We discovered this place while looking for eateries near the Greek Theatre. The food was excellent!!! We tried 5 of their pasta dishes and each dish was fresh and delish. Another bonus was that the prices were very reasonable. The service was also very good. The only negative thing was the very small wine list. Also, I noticed that due to the popularity of the restaurant, it is best to arrive early. This place is a keeper
quite simply the best – we love this place. i come to il campriccio at least twice a month. their homemade tiramisu is a must-have and so is their fresh brewed passion fruit iced tea. my favs include the antonio and tres funghi! YUM YUM! good and cheap. don't come if you're dieting.
Great Neighborhood Spot – My husband and I eat at Il Capricio frequently. I wouldn't say that the food is amazing but it is quite solid. Overall, eating at Il Capricio is always an enjoyable experience and intend to conitue to be a regular.
