Rosa's (now renamed Franco's) is under new ownership and a serious upgrade to the quality of food and other offerings. The proprietor, Nino, has added weekend musical entertainment and hired a wonderful chef to bring New York quality Italian cooking to the NJ suburbs (while keeping the NY prices across the river where they belong). Nino is a true Italian,... More

It's all about the sauce and if the "main man" is doing the cooking, it's ALL good. My elderly Dad can't each many foods that do not disagree with him. He loves Sausage and Peppers, but if the sauce is too acidic, it doesn't love him back. We've tried others like Pompillio's, Esposito's, Casa Maselli and Savino's. While Savino's is... More

Took the "Tour of Italy" for 2, veal, eggplant, shrimp, chicken, and so on and so on. A few in our party got the seafood fra diavolo, and it was top shelf all the way.... More
