Good food, lackluster service

I've lived in northern NJ my entire life and have always seen this place when driving along the highway. I finally decided to give it a try. The food was very good, although the menu listed on their website was much more expansive than the menu provided at the table. That was very disappointing... read more

I organized my husband's 65th birthday party here for 30 people and cannot say enough good things about the owner, Donna, and their staff. They worked with me to come up with a menu I liked, ordered a fantastic cake that my husband loved (and he is finicky about cake), and gave us great service during our 4+ hour event.... More

Slow pace dining. Great food. Chef/Owner came to the table to greet us during meal. Sunday pasta and Veal paparazzi were amazing. Only drawback was that it was friday night. Karaoke was going. A little loud. But the entrees were worth it.

Love the atmosphere, very cozy, Mediterranean. Love the outdoor sitting area. We went for lunch a few times. Food is OK, adequately priced. Service is good. They have a separate party room.

Overall, it was pretty good. My college and I had a stuffed scallop and risotto dish. It was pretty good maybe a little heavy on the seasoning of the stuffing. Reasonable price.

I've driven by Al Di La for years so was keen to finally try it a couple of weeks ago. The parking lot is always full so figured the place was really good ... sadly, this was a bad assumption on my part There were 2 of us for dinner early on a Saturday night. We were seated promptly and... More

I went there with a group of friends... The place was very nicely decorated. They manager spoke to me about gluten and ensured they would take care of us! I got the broc rabe and sausage without the pasta. It was garlicky delicious. My friend ordered the lamb osso bucco and said it was great! The staff were very friendly... More
