Saturday night - busy place. Found quality not as I remembered. Our party of five had a small pizza (judged to be too doughy with too wide a crust), stuffed peppers with linguine, stuffed eggplant (red peppers, mozzarella, spinach, artichoke, mushrooms) with linguine, veal limone with angel hair and spinach, a spinach salad, and steamed clams. Also ordered zucchini blossoms... More

Known for many years as a great pizza place. Gets extremely crowded on weekends. Nice place to bring the family for a pizza or for friends to meet after work. Food beyond pizza is OK (very good for a pizza restaurant but not comparable to a good Italian restaurant.

The food is great, and the pizza tastes like pizza should... The thing you'll need to remember is that it's not a huge place so it fills-up fast!

I can not review any of the food here except for the pizza, but the pizza is great. It is exactly what you would expect from a great NJ bar pizza pie. Perfect crispness on the pizza, and just the right amount of burnt part on the crust. Fresh sauce and cheese make this one of my faves.

always good but always busy. The food is traditional Italian. The pizza is what many people heard there for and it is very good. The atmosphere - lets just say they haven't remodeled in a long time.

We've been going here for about 40 yrs. and the Bavaqua family has done a great job with their family restaurant and the staff was terrific. We were up from Delaware for some errands and made a point to go out of our way to enjoy our favorite pizza place. We're not sure if it's been sold but the pizza... More

I've been going to the Reservoir since I was a little girl. I think they have the BEST pizza! My husband and I have our go-to meal there, even though I always read the whole menu and ponder the specials. We always end up with the seafood salad (not on the menu, I don't think. You have to ask for... More

Regular meeting place for business and friends. Always packed - a good sign that place continues to excel after so many years. Large portions, good service, fair prices. Always on my short list when asked "where do you want to meet"...

Came in for dinner after a snowstorm and had the best meal. The salad was the best I've had in a long time. The pizza bread was a treat...one order is enough for 4-5 people. Pic recommend the linguine and clams...delicious! Friendly staff.

Everything here is great, you cannot go wrong here. they can make anything you would like here if there is nothing on their very vast and extensive menu. The service is great but would recommend making a reservation because it does fill up very fast.
