Almost went to Varka but instead elected to check out this new place. What an inviting venue. The owner was very genuine and generous, offering a few beers from his own stock as opposed to my walking 2 blocks to a liquor store ( I walked). This is a very cozy environment. The food was great. We had an egg... More

Very welcoming atmosphere with a huge variety of meals. Sam & his wife Maria makes you feel like relatives instead of customers. Its BYOB and no matter what wine you bring in there is something on the menu for an excellent pairing. All food is cooked when you order it and the chef is very obliging if you want to... More

We had a less than desirable dinner at Bon Giovanni. The first negative was that the restaurant was empty, at 6 PM. We were the only people in the restaurant. We looked at the menu, which was very limited, and decided on a meal. My issue with the restaurant was not the food itself, the food wasn’t’ bad. It was... More

This BYOB is a small boutique restaurant in Ramsey, NJ that features a well rounded Italian menu -- And with a Brazilian Flair! If you do not see your favorite dish, mention it to the owner and chances are that they can make it for you. They are also great at making salads and dressings to your needs. My husband... More

We went here on New Years Eve with 3 other couples. The place was busy but we were seated right away since we had reservations. I had the grilled swordfish which was excellent. The prices were reasonable and portion sizes were good. The service was good although we did wait about one hour and fifteen minutes for our meals. Then... More

Having had lunch here on two prior occasions with good results, I took two friends there last night, Jan. 4, 2014, for dinner. Made a reservation one week in advance for 7 P.M. but we were ready to dine by 6:15 so I called and they moved the reservation up to 6:30 P.M. We were seated upon arrival at the... More

We've brought people to the restaurant and everyone has enjoyed We arrived once to Bon Giovanni withour a reservation. Sam offered... More

Had the pleasure of dining with a group of about 50 for our Christmas Luncheon. The atmosphere is quaint and well-done. All the staff are friendly and extremely helpful. Our menu choices were picked prior by our Coordinator and they were varied. All at my table chose differently and no one was disappointed. Then the icing on the meal was... More

Went out to eat with a friend who lives in Ramsey. She loves this place. I would have also, had I not had the misfortune of choosing what I did. I ordered the pasta with shrimp & scallops. Waitress comes back & tells me they're out of scallops. So I took clams as a substitute. I took a bite &... More
