5 of us descended on Torna a Sorrento for Father's Day super today. This gem of a restaurant offers reliable, tasty food, with mom and pop and brother doing the authentic Italian cooking The DOCG chianti was nice ($30)--in general, all the Italian wines on the list go well with food and are moderately priced. The Manila clams in red... More

We have been here many, many times over the past years and it is simply our favorite local place It's also the place we take our out of town friends and family or have special occasion dinners (e.g. my 50th birthday). You can count on an excellent meal everytime, freshly cooked with local ingredients. In season, the salad tomatoes come... More

Everything at this place was amazing. We started with appetizers and enjoyed everything through desert. The service was great and the food seemed like home cooking. Thre place is cozy and truly was a great accidental find. I will definitely be back to try additional dishes and get some more cheesecake.

On a recent visit to Elizabeth and looking for Italian food, it was suggested we try this location. It is a small side street location, with their own private parking. Walking inside it seems very small and noisy but also very cozy as well and you feel at home very quickly. The service is very proper and overseen by the... More

This was the worst food I had eaten all year. Veal for parmesan was a frozen veal patty, the kind with the holes in it. The Pasta had some kind of greasy sauce which smelled bad. No one at my table of eight ate the pasta side. Ragu would have been better,. To be fair the person next to me... More
