I liked everything about this restaurant.. the authentic NJ Italian feel, the wait staff and the food. All fantastic. For an Italian restaurant.. the steak was amazing. Great spot for romantic or after work setting. We ate the in the back room for a work event... good thing as we were a bit loud.

The staff is great the setting is very nice the menu has great options. Caesar salad was very good the gnocchi pasta was great the grappa sauce I changed to was just ok. The cannoli was ok I prefer more traditional and this was pistachio but it was still good.
