Need restaurant for a rehearsal dinner near cedar knolls for a group of 30-40 people.
Il Capriccio is upscale Italian, all of a mile from Cedar Knolls in Whippany. The food continues to get raves after decades in business. *I* haven't eaten there in years, but I remember loving it the last time I did; maybe others can chime in.
Far more casual (and BYO) is Il Vilaggio, about a mile up Rt 10 in the other direction in Parsippany. Standard Italian fare done well, imo.
I'm betting it will be too high too, but see what they come up w/for a group. If not, Il Villagio is certainly reasonable (and BYO will help keep the cost down).
