Is your bread homemade?
Our famous bread, and olive tapenade, is made fresh everyday in the il Capriccio kitchen from a very secret and guarded recipe. No peeking!
Are your desserts homemade?
All of our desserts are homemade except for the cannoli shells which are imported from Sicily.
Are you guys really from Italy?
Mom and Pop arrived here off the boat from Naples in 1960. That’s also where Ermanno and Tiziana were born. Gianni was born just down the street from the restaurant on Vermont Avenue. To say we are Italian is an understatement. Read our full story when you get a chance, it’s a great Italian-American journey.
Do you have gluten-free pasta?
We most certainly do. Take a peek.
Do you deliver?
How about catering?
Weddings, birthdays, private or corporate…we bring our much-loved menu to just about any event in LA County. Plus servers if you need them. See our catering page for full details.
Can I rent the restaurant for a private event?
Most definitely. il Capriccio has a capacity of 76, including our beautiful patio; and we’re always delighted to design a menu just right for your occasion. Call Ermanno at 323 662 5900 to get the ball rolling.
Do you serve pizza?
We’ve served some of the most delicious and authentic pizza in the past but don’t currently have the space to produce a full pizza menu. You can usually catch a unique pizza offering on our specials each night. Otherwise, we highly recommend SetteBello if you’re craving a full pizza menu.
Are you the same guys as Di Carlo Pizza? Their website is ilCapriccioPizzeria.com.
We are in NO way affiliated with Di Carlo Pizza.
What’s your favorite dish?
That really depends on the mood. Our Rigatoni Norcina is a classic, while our Squid-Ink Pasta has become an LA favorite. The Pork Chop is always magnificent. And the fried goat cheese appetizer is a great way to start your meal.
Do you valet?
Got you covered. $5, or $4 with restaurant validation. We even have a customer feedback form to ensure our valet service remains first-class.
Are you dog-friendly?
We are dog-lovers and welcome man’s best friend (no more than 20 lb, please) on our beautiful front patio.
