Have been 3 times for lunch in the last month, great food each time. Had the veal special and it was phenomenal. A pasta special last time was fresh and a great portion. Room is a little tight, but the other patrons are half of the ambiance. Bar is lively, service is good- not overbearing but not 5 star either.... More

Entrance is down a few stairs (basement) which leads straight into the bar area with a few tables on the right side. More tables are situated in the back of the restaurant and there are some tables upstairs. There is parking on the restaurant property (not a large lot) and some street parking (difficult to find). Standard chicken parmigiana (large... More

Dinallo's is a great Italian place. The food is excellent and portions are well-sized. The bread is phenomenal! The restaurant has a full bar and could get noisy for dinner, but service is awesome, and I have never had a bad meal there. Enjoy!

My friend and I were driving back to NJ from a NYC event. He remembered this place he had not been to in many years. It was a Thursday night and we got there late (like 9ish) and the place was PACKED at the bar and in the regular dining area. There was entertainment and dancing. We were lucky to... More

I ate at Dinallo's for the second time Saturday night with my wife and friends. this time I had Shrimp Parmigiana (Gamberoni alla Parmigiana) really tasty and a generous portion. The other dishes were fillet of Sole, rack of Lamb and some pasta dishes. I tested all and they were so good I am not sure what to order next... More

Upon checking intothe Paramus Courtyard I requested a list of local restaurants. After reviewing I asked the clerk which Italian restaurant was the best in her opinion. She replied that the best local Italian restaurant was not on the list and referred me to Dinallo's. Had the absolute best chicken parm ever ! Yes, the place is small and crowded,... More

It's small, crowded and noisy. So know that going in. And the bar scene can be a little over the top (check that one out for yourself). But Dinallo's generally serves a very good meal and while a bit expensive, uses fresh ingredients and you won't leave disappointed! Recommended!

We had 6:30 reservations and hostess came over to us at 8:30 to tell us we had to leave because they had a reservation at that table for 8:30. Manager claims he told her to offer us a drink at the bar, but she didn't,... More

Being originally a Jersey Boy (Englewood) I see friends across the river quite often. Last night (Friday Night) We went to this place to eat until we could eat no more. My friend Steve ordered fried Calamari for the table, a great choice. I had the shrimp parmigiana, talk about large portions of food you cannot stop eating (it is... More
