Il Capriccio serves a constantly changing Northern Italian menu featuring local products with an award winning Italian wine and Grappa list. Though long considered a local secret, Il Capriccio has been the number one Northern Italian restaurant in Zagat's over the last decade.

The wine list has been featured in Decanter, Sante, Wine & Spirits and Wine Spectator. Il Capriccio’s commitment to pairing their renowned cuisine with just the right wine has earned the restaurant a top caliber reputation throughout Boston.

Wine and Spirits Magazine described Il Capriccio as "An out of the way gem with great Italian food and a passionate commitment to Italian wine."

The Boston Globe raved, "Perfect for wowing important clients or on a first date."

The New York Times wrote "Il Capriccio offers consistently sumptuous northern Italian food cooked by Richie Barron, with an extraordinary list of Italian wines -- many of them hard to find outside Italy."
