The Restaurant

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.

Decanter, Sante, Wine & Spirits, and Wine Spectator have all featured our comprehensive Italian wine list.  Il Capriccio’s commitment to pairing its renowned cuisine with just the right wine has earned the restaurant a top caliber reputation throughout Boston.

Wine and Spirits 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 … with an extraordinary list of Italian wines -- many of them hard to find outside Italy."
