Food is mediocre at best. Most tasted like it was frozen and reheated. The decor is sorely in need of updating. Don't waste your money.

The best Italian restaurant in North Jersey. The food, service and prices are truly outstanding. If you want outstanding quality dishes and superb service, Il Vicolo stands out as a truly wonderful eatery. It is a dining delight. Charles Cox

Not only do we eat here a lot, but we've also had special occasion family meals in the private dining room. Their food is well prepared, delicious and the staff is great.

A family member booked a Communion party here that was from 1PM-4PM. The first problem was that the room was not set up to accommodate the DJ and therefor had to be rearranged. The room temperature was over 80 degrees and the owners could care less. They also tried to pull the curtain divider thus intensifying the heat. People repeatedly... More

Ten of us went to Il Vicolo for a family get-together, and we had a great time here. We've only had one bad (Thanksgiving Day) experience here in the past, but this was not it...we had a great meal and were treated very well by the staff the entire time. The entire meal, from appetizer to entrée to dessert was... More

I have been to this restaurant several times with my friends and family and every time, my experience was good. The food was very good and in my opinion, a very good value. I continue to recommend this place to as I found the service was good and waiters were very pleasant and accommodating.

I have been going into this restaurant for years and I have never had a bad meal. They are very accommodating. If something is not on the menu and they can make it, they will. They do not have a liquor license, so it's BYOB. You never feel rushed, even when people are waiting.

You don't feel packed in - tables are spaced nicely. Service is attentive at this "bring your own" restaurant. The Shrimp Fra Diavolo is especially good. A Groupon deal and other coupons run often.

The food was average; the service was almost nonexistent and mostly non-English speaking. The food was not served hot and when you consider the number of Italian restaurants around here, a restaurant that is merely average won't cut it. There are no windows in the dining room and you can't escape the feeling that you are in a New Jersey... More
