Construction & Reopening

    We are sorry to have been closed for such a long time during 2019-21 while we built out our new home at 704 Main St. in The Merc complex.

    704 marks Il Capriccio's third Waltham home in 41 years, having opened on Prospect St. in April 1981, then moved to 888 Main St. in 1994.  Our new space is not as intimate as 888, with its cheek-by-jowl tables grandfathered in before modern building regulations.  But our new tables are 30"x30", allowing diners ample room for wine glasses as well as plates!

    As well as more space, we can now offer al fresco dining on our twinned 22-seat patios.  Moving also provided the overdue opportunity to upgrade tired equipment and systems.   Allaying fears about indoor dining during pandemics, our three newly installed Mitsubishi air handlers employ state-of-the-art MERV Level 13 filtration, just a step down from operating room air purity.

    We promise the wait will have been well worth it, and not to move again for at least another 27 years.
