You"ll have a lot of time to catch up and reconnect with friends at this lovely restaurant. Why? The wait service is intermittent once your order is taken. Four of us sat in the bar area on karoke Friday - quite fun with many good songs and singers, but had to get up to the bar itself and still... read more

Great food & service. Good spot to sit up to the bar or date night in the dining room. Hotel staff recommended this place to me, they said they always get good feedback from their guests that go here. Wonderful Italian, I had the penne vodka sauce with grilled shrimp. Excellent.

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

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 for two of the people I... 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.
