It’s certainly no secret among Ewell Village locals and connoisseurs of Italian cuisine around Epsom, but travellers or visitors to this part of Surrey with a soft spot for continental cuisine should set their coordinates for Ewell Village’s High Street. Elegant but homely, Ristorante Il Capriccio provides a lovely atmosphere and a menu of traditional Italian treats to match any mood – Sunday is a time for homely, hearty food, and Ristorante Il Capriccio provide just the ticket with their gorgeous lasagna della mamma, during the week you can’t go wrong with their exquisite three-course set lunch, monthly live music nights are a time for a casual tipple and delicious antipasto nibble (order two serves of proscuitto e melone from the get-go, because one is never enough) and any time is a good time for seafood lovers, with grilled Dover sole, steak of halibut in a butter, lemon and parsley sauce or skate in black butter and capers just a few of the fabulous fish dishes.
Been going here for many years. Food always good. Staff attentive and polite. Great atmosphere. Next thing we would like to try is the end of month music nights.
Friendly and relaxed family run restaurant. Good food, with a great ‘specials’ selection this evening which was realistically priced too. We will be back again.
Excellent choice on the set menu , excellent service and extremely good value . Have been coming here now for about fifteen years and never had a bad meal.
My mother and I had a delicious meal, cooked to order. The selection of breads we had as a starter were very tasty. Mum's ravioli filled with smoked salmon was served with a cream sauce and she said it was divine. I had fresh tomato pasta with a lovely range of vegetables.
At Ristorante Il Capriccio there is always a warm welcome The food is delicious, and the price is reasonable. My friends and I had a lovely lunch on Sunday. The restaurant was full, and waiters were still very attentive. If you haven't visited yet, call them up now. They get booked up quickly. Well worth a visit
I have been here several times with friends as it is a favourite restaurant for lunch. Yesterday I took my son and daughter-in-law there for lunch and it did not disappoint. The new decor is charming, and the service was quick and efficient, even though it was very busy. We all thoroughly enjoyed our varying meals and my guests are very serious 'foodies' who eat out in the best London restaurants. They were very impressed with the food and drink, and the whole ambience of the restaurant, and have requested that I make a reservation for lunch again when they visit me from Essex. It was excellent value for the Sunday set tariff.
We have been to Il Capriccio many times over a lot of years . It continues to give excellent service and provide food which is of the highest quality . Our visit yesterday 18th May was as good as ever . We eat from the fixed price evening menu . The pasta starter and prawn cocktail were very good . the main courses of veal and trout were very tasty and well cooked . The deserts left nothing to be desired and to finish with coffee just made the meal At a fixed price of £17.95 was excellent value for money
We visited Il Capprichio on 7 December for a business lunch. The menu was quality Italian, lots of fish, seafood, meat and vegetables with truly generous portions. A real bonus was the dessert fridge, which you rarely see in Italian restaurants any more with, amongst lots of gorgeous cakes, 3 different marinated fresh fruit bowls. The wine choice was also extensive, the service friendly but discreet. All in all a wonderful experience in the peaceful setting of Ewell Village.
Good morning We had a lovely time, the food was lovely and hot, and they were generous portions. Lovely family atmosphere, all ages which was nice. Would have preferred a straight table rather than two round ones pulled together as I feel it split the party a little. Very importantly though, the ladies toilets were clean and nicely presented, which is where some restaurants fall behind. Definately come again and try the weekly menu. Thank you.
It was my nans birthday and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. They even kept my 1 year old entertained! It was a really special evening and the food was fantastic. Thank you for a lovely night the candles and singing for the birthday girl finished the night off on a high!
