My nephew and his fiance were victims of a burglary recently. The perpetrators were identified and caught and the majority of the property was recovered, but the police haven't returned it to them yet. How/when can they get it back? Do they have to wait until the case goes to court?

Until the property is no longer evidence, the prosecutor will retain it.
As victims, have the two contact the local prosecutor. Sometimes a deal can be worked out to have videotape evidence substituted BUT each prosecutor approaches the evidentiary burden independently.
Good news for you that the property was found and the perpetrator was caught. Most times that is not the case.
