Reminds me of home...

Really great Italian food and pizza. I really like this place....I like being able to go to a very casual place and get a great meal. I don't always want to go to a fancy restaurant with a dress code and a reservation but you almost have to do that sometimes just to get a delicious meal these... read more

I dined with a friend recently on a Friday night. The parking lot was very crowded, but had no problem locating a parking spot. We arrived around 6:00 pm, which is a little early for a Friday night, but had thought to make a reservation in advance. There were a fair number of tables available and we were seated immediately.... More

Maybe I'm just an old nostalgic guy, but I have been coming to the Res since I was a wee lad, some fifty years ago. Thing is, so have all of my "Old Time" friends. Whenever we get back to town, The Res is always the Number One Choice to come back to. Packed with locals, invariably one will see... More

The restaurant is packed with locals, so there must be something about it. It is definitely not the atmosphere - the place has the charm of over-filled train station. The tables are small and close together, it is loud and feels hectic. The menu offers the usual Italian favorites with a focus on meatballs and pizza. I had the stuffed... More

Classic Italian food at a reasonable price. I have been to the Res many times over the years and have never been disappointed. My children love the green beans! The Shrimp Calabrese appetizer is more than enough to enjoy as a main course. Although the atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired the food and price make up for that!

Excellent Italian food in a traditional good time, friendly atmosphere. Wait can be a little long and the preparation is lovingly slow. BUT, make a reservation and enjoy a cocktail, beer or beverage. You will certainly find great enjoyment here!

It's difficult to find good pizza in this area but the Reservoir Tavern has been a staple in the area when it comes to pizza. The staff is super friendly, starting with the owner and it trickles down to tall the employees. We generally sit at the bar at night where Vinny and Franny take care of us. If you... More
