I hesitate to say anything because we've been eating here for more than 30 years. Sadly, neither my wife nor I think this place is anywhere near as good as it used to be. Neither would these two Italians (Well, one Sicilian and one Neopolitan) consider the pizza pies to be all that good. As we walked out the other... More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch on our way from Philly to Lake George. We had read the reviews online and decided it sounded like a decent option. The building and location seemed like maybe we would fund a good turkey club or a tuna melt but this place blew our minds! The smell from the parking lot... More

Large portions, reasonable prices, varied menu, dishes prepared on premises. Caters to locals, family groups, and the occasional visitor lucky enough to discover the place. We went later on a Saturday evening and the place was packed; be prepared to wait and arrive early if possible, but any wait is worth it.

I've been going here for about 7 years now (since I moved to town) and it's always great. I have tried most dishes, but usually after reading the menu I stick to some variation of a bar pie for myself. It's hard to pass up the pizza! The place does get very busy, especially Friday and Saturday from about 7... More

A real local place. Loud, noisy, friendly, and great food!!! Their calamari rings are the most tender around. Pizza is delicious also. Thin crust and flavorful. Servers are very attentive.

I have been an old time, long time fan of The "Res" but have to admit the last time out was disappointing. No place is perfect, but I and my two dining companions each noticed the quality has slipped. Will definitely go again, but too many missteps and they may loose and old fan.

I tried to go there for lunch today, Friday, at 1 pm. It was very crowded which wasn't a problem since I was prepared to wait. I walked up the stairs with my 1 year old grandson in my arms, my 84 year old mother with her cane and went into the restaurant. A woman stepped aside and stood directly... More

Get there early or wait...this is a locals hangout and accommodates families as well as the bar crowd. My family in TX and CA make this a must stop when they are in New Jersey. The decor is plain, the noise level high when crowded which is most of the time. Staff is very efficient and everyone from toddler to... More

Great food in a rustic (hasn't been updated in years) décor. Served up by hard working fun waitress's, with a slight attitude. Love this place. Reminds me of the old Mario's in Clifton.

Always good, always packed. Have been many times over the years. Great pizza and traditional Italian classics like giambotta. Tables are very close together. Seating for two is sometimes faster at the bar. The location is Boonton (not Parsippany). Take-out available too.
