About Il Capriccio - Hamilton

A finalist in the Scottish Italian Awards 2015 and a neighbourhood fixture down Cadzow Street on the northern edge of Hamilton’s town centre, Il Capriccio is a must-visit destination for lovers of Italian cuisine and culture. While it’s the authentic Neapolitan-style pizza that has made Il Capriccio famous in Lanarkshire and over in Glasgow, this cosy cafe-restaurant is also ideal for a simple espresso (brewed from the finest imported Caffe Dokito blends) and a bite to eat. An affordable lunch menu keeps things rolling during the day, while the evening a la carte menu is packed with traditional classics. Look for the tricolored flag on the corner of Cadzow and Church Street, but be sure to book yourself a table to avoid disappointment – this local spot is a favourite.

This place is amazing. A little piece of Italy in the heart of Hamilton. Staff superb, food is out of this world. Not a place to walk by. May need to book at times.

This is a fantastic restaurant. Been several times, and the service from Ricardo is amazing. Disappointed I couldn't get my usual starter of prawns. However they get them in fresh, so I think that's testament to the amazing food made by the chef.

Fantastic food. Best mozzarella starter ever. Staff are also fantastic. They make you feel most welcome and make your service feel so personal to you. This is without a doubt not only the best Italian in Hamilton, but I would go as far to say that this is best in whole of South Lanarkshire. Been here 3/4 times in last couple of years and will return soon. If you haven't been then your missing out.
