This is my favorite place in NJ. Because you can bring your own wine, the total cost for dinner is fairly modest compared with restaurants of similar caliber. Most expensive entrees are about 30 with good ones around 20. It is very popular and reservations are high recommended. My favorite... read more

The food is the only reason for 4 stars not 5. Atmosphere is nice, service is good, I love that it's BYOB, and the food is good...just not the best I've ever had. This restaurant is definitely worth checking out if you're in the mood for some home style Italian or if you are planning a nice night out.

LouCas has been an established restaurant in Edison for quite some time now. Make reservations since it does get crowded. We usually go with the whole family, and share everything.

The one thing that sets very good restaurants apart from mediocre ones is the ability to serve consistently good food. I have never been disappointed. When bringing friends They complement me for choosing LouCas. The service is professional and courteous. Their menu is varied and has many fish dishes to choose from. Their specials are creative and tasty. .

We gathered some of our closest friends to celebrate the New Year. We sat on the main floor which is lovely!! (don't sit downstairs). The food was amazing as always and the atmosphere was festive! Service was a bit slow and the restaurant was packed. One dinner was very late to the table and was taken off the check. All... More

We were married here five years ago and visit it at least 5-6 times per year for an unbelievable night of cuisine, service and ambience. Very romantic, dynamic and enriching experience on every level. From the moment you enter, you feel the level of stress lift from your mind and heart as you enter this old world Italian elegant restaurant,... More

I have been here a few times and I have always had a good meal. The recited list of specials is too long to keep track of and they don't include the price. The service was good and the food was a good amount.

Went for a business dinner. Never heard of this place except we were told we're getting a 5 course dinner. Everything was DELICIOUS!! The appetizers consisted of clams, calamari, fried zucchini, caprese, etc. Salad was a choice of house or caesar. Main course was a choice of veal marsala, pasta, salmon, and stuffed chicken. Finally dessert. Highly recommend this place.

This is one of those white table cloth places, one should dress up for. Jacket and Tie has gone by the wayside some years ago. When you want to go someplace dressy, this is one of the best choices outside New Brunswick. The food is up to it. We had the Cold Seafood Platter for two. We were thrilled. Everything... More
