The atmosphere is unusual--busy with busboys scurrying around while waitstaff, who don't really know the food, do their best under frantic conditions and may disappear for long periods of time. The owner (I think she's the owner) shows up at the end wearing a sour expression. No one seems to want to welcome the guests. Yet the food was quite... More

Recently went with 6 friends for our monthly boys night dinner (hardly boys, in our fifties and sixties). Arrived about 7:45 and proceeded to our table. It was a cold night and the restaurant was not crowded. We ordered appetizers, a meal, dessert and coffee and were lingering over our wine wanting to finish the bottle when we noticed the... More

Got to chatting with a terrific guy who came to repair our boiler about eats in the Bergen-Rockland Counties. A discussion of bad pizza joints morphed to how even in Manhattan, so many "Italian" resturants are owned by Croatians, Greeks, etc. where the food is a poor imitation of the kind of Italian meals we've known from families (including his)...

Great Italian food at reasonable prices for over 20 years! Mama and the staff make everyone feel like family. Don't miss this local gem!

We have been here several time and always find the food very good. The service is friendly and accommodating. The only negative is that on weekends it is very noisy.

This humble little restaurant is family owned and run. The expert preparation of seafood seems to be a specialty and never disappoints. When you have cooked Italian food for fifty years as I have, you can be a little hard to please, but not here! We have tried and enjoyed almost the entire menu during the twenty years we have...

My daughter works near the restaurant, so we decided to try it. There was a woman and her daughter before us, so we were told that they had to seat them first. After a few minutes they asked the mother if they were having dinner and she said that they just wanted pizza, so they were told that they couldn't... More

My wife and I have been to this very popular Italian restaurant about 5 times. We've never been disappointed with the food. The staff is very friendly and almost every time we've been there, "mama" strolls through the small dining to see how everybody is doing. The one criticism I do have, that a number of other reviewers have noted,... More

We have always loved this restaurant and go back everytime we visit NJ. The food is always consistantly good. Also a favorite of my parents who lived nearby but are now gone. The last time we were there one of my favorite meals was not on the menu any longer but the waiter said "no problem, we will make it... More

The only thing I don't like about this restaurant is the noise! The dining room must have the wrong type floor or ceiling covering, because EVERY conversation is magnified and it is hard to enjoy your meal. It feels more as if you are eating in a cafeteria. But I find the food is always good. It gets crowded, so... More
