Antonio Grande achieved his dream by opening his first restaurant, the Bel'vedere, in 1976 with his wife, Clara. The couple worked to achieve their primary goal, introducing authentic, gourmet Italian food to Americans outside of the traditional fare of spaghetti and meatballs. The Bel'vedere was so popular, the couple needed a bigger space; behold the inception of Il Capriccio in 1984.

Ambiance is paramount, when you dine at Il Capriccio, you feel right at home. Fresh flowers, gentile romantic lighting, chairs you can sink into and live pianists make for an unforgettable experience.
