I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner at this lovely little BYO restaurant. The food was great. The escargot was fabulous-out of the shell- but very nicely prepared. The lamb chops and the veal chops were terrific. I only have two negatives-lack of parking and no clamps for the escargot! Service was very, very good. Décor lovely. Expensive but not outrageous. Very... More

My husband and I took my in-laws out for lunch on a weekday. We did'nt need a reservation. We were the only ones there. The decor is outdated. Good food with upscale prices.

We were in Clifton to see a friend perform at a nearby tavern, but we wanted better than "bar food" for dinner. Trip Advisor reviews were great for Sergio's, so we made reservations. The decor is kind of dated, but with food like this who cares? Everything that each of the four of us had was wonderful. Restaurant is BYOB... More

Not located in the best section of Clifton, Sergio's interior is something between a Baroque cathedral and a brothel. Although we had reservations, we still had a good 15-20 minute wait for our table as we watched a more favored regular get seated, even though they arrived after us. However the owner was sufficiently apologetic about the delary. The food... More

I was visiting my mother in Clifton, and wanted to take her out to lunch. She suggested Sergio's, only a couple of blocks from where she lives. She said it was a good Italian restaurant. I was a little skeptical at first; what kind of good Italian restaurant could you find on Lakeview Avenue in Clifton, NJ? Well to my... More

Amazing food. The other reviews have pretty much already covered it, but the food here is beyond delicious. The restaurant itself is small but cozy, so don't plan on bringing a large group without a reservation. Sergio and his staff are very friendly and welcoming. But the food...words can't describe the flavor and originality of so many of Sergio's dishes.... More

This storefront restaurant is deceiving from the outside, but the friendly staff welcomes you with a warm smile as you enter. My wife & I had a fig appetizer like none we've tasted in the past. It had great flavor & amazing texture. Our main entry portions were very generous and the food was amazing. We would visit again in... More
