There are lots of small Italian joints all over the Mid-Atlantic where you can get Pizza, Stromboli, Cheese Steaks and Pasta. Some of these places take it to the next level with authentic Italian fare that includes Seafood and steak entrees with outstanding al Forno selections. Taste of Italy Ristorante is one of those Italian gems that can provide you... More

We came twice and both times the food was excellent. The wait staff were quick and efficient. I ordered a lump crab linguine in a spicy red sauce that was out of this world. Great big pieces of lump crab and the sauce was perfect! I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely good back again!

This is a little and I mean little, hole in the wall Italian restaurant in a strip mall off of I-78. We stopped in at 7:30 on a Friday night. The place wasn't full, but there were customers sprinkled throughout the place. We were greeted by the hostess who really didn't say much as there wasn't much of a welcome... More

It had been almost two months since I last was able to visit the restaurant. On arrival I saw that the whole interior had been changed. The remodeling of the restaurant has almost been completed. The idea is to "upgrade" it from being perceived as a pizzeria to a bit more "up market" restaurant. It looks good. And, best of... More

We dined there for a nice night out. We were greeted by our hostess and seated right away. We ordered the calamari appetizer which was cooked perfectly. Our entrees we had the Seafood Alfredo and the Chicken Parmigiana . The portions are large and the taste was out of this world. You can tell everything was homemade. Definitely on of... More

We went to this restaurant as recommended by the hotel staff. It is located in a strip mall not far from the airport. The staff was welcoming and helpful and the service excellent. We ordered two entrees which came with choices of soup or salad (both very good) and then the enormous entrees arrived. We took half of it home... More

A lost reservation had our group of 6 waiting far longer than expected and the hostess had zero personality, making the wait seem longer and more intolerable than usual. Why you pick someone who clearly has no talent for dealing with the public to be your hostess is a mystery to me; just keeping us updated on our wait would... More

We took large group of 25 to dinner. The staff was pleasant and could accommodate our group easily. Mussels marinara was very good. Food overall was better than expected with large portions. They have a bar with wide selection. Italian food was authentic. No complaints.
