It was wonderful to rediscover this restaurant with its friendly service and excellent selection of tasty dishes that offers a very good valued set lunch.
Went as a family of four. All of us ordered from the starter and main. The food looked and tasted superb. Everyone agreed that their food was lovely. We will definitely be going back.
Went with family. Lovely atmosphere, lovely food, good portions and very friendly staff. Set menu had a lot of choice. Would definitely go there again
Lovely local restaurant really good food staff very friendly. Have been going to this restaurant for many years.It has just been refurbished and looks very smart.
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
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.
The ambience of the restaurant is welcoming and the staff patient and attentive. The food is excellent and affordable, and, with such a varied menu, choice is easy. The location of the restaurant makes parking difficult, but this has no reflection on the restaurant itself. We shall certainly go to Il Capriccio again and will recommend friends to do so too.
Excellent food served by attentive staff who didn't rush you to finish your meal. The set dinner menu was extensive and very reasonably priced. My only small criticism is the portion size - slightly too large for me but that is an opinion that will vary from person to person.
The restaurant has recently been refurbished to a good standard creating a very good environment. Plenty of choices on A La Carte menu and wine list , with very good set menus for dinnner and lunch at good value. Excellent service and the right attention during our dinner , one of the best Italian restaurant in the village.
Been going here for 3o years. Worst experience ever - hour wait for starter, another hour for main. Staff ignored us, fish well overdone. Prepacked butter gone off. Packed and noisy. Undeniably good value but such a shame a good restaurant has deteriorated, used to be one of our favourites and worth the journey, but have our doubts now. Very disappointed with staff attitude - used to be so nice.
eveything on the night was excellent, food, environment etc, the only thing that let it down a little was the slow start to the service. Although that may have been because we were a party of eleven. Not a great problem and we will definitely be making the restaurant one of our favourite evenings out.
Food and service excellent but disturbed by constant, uncontrolled running about by children and youngsters. no one seemed to be doing anything about this. Have been a customer of Il Capriccio for quite a long time and this is the first time that this has happened. Very impressed by your refurbishment of the restaurant
Fantastic food. The lunch menu is really good value. The staff are pleasant and friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed. We were not hurried over our lunch. This is a great place for a celebration or just a catch up with friends over a meal.
Service was a little slow and inattentive, considering the few clients dining at the time. The food was well prepared and of good quality, so we were overall content with our meal. It was a pity the background music kept being interrupted and eventually turned off, as it lent a little atmosphere to the occasion. The decor was charming, including paintings of the local area.
A really good venue. The staff were attentive and courteous. We decided to eat from the set menu as this seemed to be good value. All our food was excellent and it was lovely to be able to select your desert from the chilled display cabinet. A really enjoyable evening.
I took the wife for Valentine's Day lunch. Very well received by the helpful waiters. Great menu and the dishes met or exceeded our expectations. The waiters'll remember us for a 'couple' of champagnes, bottles that is ...... Thanks again ....
Would highly recommend this place. Friendly and timely service, good lively atmosphere and wholesome, traditional food. Despite being a full house on a friday night, we had no complaints re food or service. Would definitely need to book ahead therefore.
Excellent fixed menu, huge choice and enormous portions. Both Italian and English dishes served. Very friendly waiters and good service. One small grumble is that they need to turn the heating up, I have been there twice in the past month and it has been cold
We went for Christmas lunch. Great tasting food and great service. As you can expect, they were busy yet still very attentive and happy to let you rest between courses. Looking forward to returning in the new year.
