A small, boutique restaurant with unusual menu choices. We celebrated a birthday, had wonderful food and great service. And, it's a BYOB!

This was our first time here and we do plan on returning. We just beat the rush on a Saturday evening. Our waitress was very friendly. We had several dishes and everyone enjoyed the flavor of their food. The pasta was fresh and all the sauces were excellent.We didn't have any pizza, but it did look tasty . For dessert... More

Over the 10+ years my wife and I lived in Hoboken, we probably ate at Margherita's at least once a week. Stopping in recently after a few years absence, it was nice to see almost nothing has changed, including the 90s throwback prices. If you order nothing else, make sure to start with the fresh mozzarella salad. The stuffed mushroom... More

I stopped here on the way home from business in Manhattan. Always friendly, attentive, and personable staff, and an old world atmosphere, generous portions add up to an enjoyable meal anytime.

Haven't been to this restaurant in some time because the food has been average. My wife and I recently decided to give it a try. The food continues to be average at best. My wife had the shrimp primavera. The dish was very bland, really no taste. I had the chicken and penne. It was ok. The sauce was nothing... More

This is one of the best casual italian restaurants I have ever been too. The pasta dishes taste homemade and the portions are huge. While in now way upscale, service is great and it always satisfies and is BYOB. It gets very crowded on weekends but does not take reservations, so there could be a wait.

I cannot say enough about the pasta at Margherita's. I don't bother with any other section of the menu because you can't go wrong with any of the homemade pasta dishes. The tables are crowded but I never mind that, I'm too engrossed in one of the best meals of my life. My favorite is the penne arrabiatta (with or... More
