I will say that I didn't expect much from the outside of this place. However a co-worker highly recommended it so we gave it a try. I am really glad we did. It was delicious. We had the Mozzarella appetizer and the grilled calamari and both were wonderful. I had the Champange Pollo for dinner and it was so delicious,... More

Went with a friend and her family. We had a private room,appetizers were served family style(as per request). All were delicious, and enough were ordered,so there was plenty to go around. Individual entrees were ordered. My ravioli were excellent! Dessert was also well done..

We have been to the restaurant 3 times and each time we have really enjoyed the food. From the bruschetta to the eggplant rollatini to the entrees, everything has been very tasty. The service is also very good and seems to be able to read your mind. I encourage folks to take a chance on this restaurant. You won't be... More

I have visited La Catena 22 on many occasions and have never been disappointed. The private banquet room accommodates small parties as well as small business groups. The pre fix menu for the latter offers a wide array of delictables including a hot antipasto. My most recent visit was for a surprise romantic dinner on Valentines Day and the special... More

The food ordered: appetizer, crab cake deep fried and tasteless, Buffalo mozzarella salad very good. Entree: Grilled shrimp was tough, Sea bass special was good except the calamari was over cooked and tougher than a rubber band. Sevice was very good but the food was not. Go to their sister restaurants, La Campagna in Morristown or Cara Mia in Millburn... More

Went there with co-workers. Slow, poor service, food not fresh tasting. Management has to step up to the plate.

Dined her for the first time with 14 other co-workers and will never be back. Apps were quite tasty, however, main courses were a total mixed bag. The fish I ordered had a terrible smell when served and when consumed, was clearly old and should not have been served. Steaks were dry and overcooked. Stuffed chicken breast had so much... More

Went to dinner with family to this restaurant. The service was informative with their entrees and very polite. Wait time was average.

Our waiter, Frank, was exceptional, first off. Ask for him if you go. The setting is nice-sort of old-world formal Italian. Reminds me a little of Casa Dante in Jersey City. The amuse bouche and bread were fine. The appetizer of calamari and broccoli rabe could have been better. I was there with my wife, adult son and 2 small... More

I celebrated my daughter's communion here one afternoon and was disappointed with the food. Most of the dishes lacked taste. The linguine with clam sauce was blah, the house pasta was horrible, and the salmon entree was flat. I had an issue with the amount of wine that was served, and you can't keep track of who drank what and... More
