The food is fantastic. The service is fantastic. The prices are fantastic. This is a neighborhood joint. But, if you are not too far away, you should make the drive. The crowd is generally older. But, having been here a number of times and always having a good meal, who cares how old others are in the restaurant. Grilled shrimp,... More

Had a wonderful dinner for 2 Saturday. Great calamari, and pasta (Cavatelli w broccoli and special linguine with baby clams, mussels and smoked salmon. Complimentary appetizer/dessert (3 cheeses, hot bread, peppers and dessert of slice bananas & cantaloup). Will definitely go back. Busy dining even on very cold winter night.

When my husband and I make plans to get together with our NJ friends for dinner while we visit them from afar, we always choose Il Vicolo. The deliciously prepared menu selections, friendly attentive waitstaff, warm and attractive decor and comfortable level of conversation from other tables, makes it the perfect place for friends to gather and enjoy spending time...

Great Italian meal at a great price. Service is always prompt, attentive, & courteous. But it's the food that makes me a repeat diner. Try it all; is all good. I especially like the Osso Bucco. Only negative that it can get very loud.

The restaurant is family owned and located in a strip mall. They honor reservations and the service is excellent. The food is average. The chicken dish was good, but the blackened tuna had a spicy sauce and was overcooked. No rush to return

We have been going here for many years and it has remained consistently good. The service is always attentive and you cannot beat the price fix menu. The almond salad is always fresh and tasty as are both the mussels and stuffed mushrooms. We had the tilapia and snapper and enjoyed both. At no extra charge, we received garlic bread,... More

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.
