I do not give praise lightly to italian restaurants. One because I like to cook and think my cooking is pretty good. This restaurant blew me away. First of all, I always try the pasta fagioli in Italian restaurants because there are so many variations. This was the closest to what Dad used to make He made rice and beans... More

We love trying different Italian restaurants in the area, but were apprehensive to visit Al Di La simply due to the exterior. The interior, however, is very inviting with nice hardwood floors (a welcomed departure from carpeting at most Italian restaurants), as well as marble details and beautiful marble tabletops. The service was very good and the waitress was wonderful... More

Was looking for a location to use my "restaurants.com" gift certificate as well as a location to meet a friend who works nearby. Al di La came up as an option. I had seen the sign on Route 17 for many years so I thought it must be good enough to stay in business so long. The staff was very... More

Very good dishes all around and the service was excellent. A very attentive wait staff and the owner, Dominic, even made sure our experience was great. The Salmon Putanesca was amazing-salmon perfectly cooked-and the homemade Ricotta Cheesecake was a favorite. We had a large party and everyone enjoyed their food immensely, from fish to pasta to the pork. A definite... More

Four of us went to an early dinner/lunch at Al Di Las. The place was sparkling clean, even the brick wall inside was shiny. The servers were friendly and on top of our needs. (we were there at an off time with three other tables, not during crazy Friday night dinner hour) As I know I previously mentioned in other... More

Nothing is worse than sitting in an empty restaurant, but my recent trip to Ai Di La was disappointing. The service is the main bright point. Very attentive and very friendly and good recommendations. The food was another story. I had a Lobster Ravioli and it was okay. My dad had a pasta in a Sunday Sauce that was mediocre.... More

I had a choice of 2 kinds of gluten free pasta, and 2 others changed the ingredients in their dishes without a problem. Around 8 the entertainment began a... More

I love this place so much that I use them for catering some of our parties. You will not find better food for the price. Everything is fresh. Dominick has always treated us well too. We go at least three times a year since he moved his restaurant. I highly recommend it!
