I have been eating here for about 12 years. Their pizza's are great! Very thin crusts! Linguine and white clam sauce is good. I really like their chicken parm. I LOVE their salads for lunch-especially the gormet salad and I always add grilled chicken-very very satisfying. I haven't ever had a bad thing over all the years-and real butter is... More

I have used Ninette's for team dinners for the various teams I have coached. I know a number of other coaches that have done the same. The pizza is reliably good. I haven't eaten much else besides that. The staff was always friendly and helpful.

A good Italian friend took me to this neighborhood spot. At first blush I had my doubts, but after meeting Paul the owner and his daughter Judy, they were the real deal. Don't be deceived by the red checkered plastic tablecloths , the penne a la vodka is excellent. The Classico pizza packs in the flavor, ask for fresh basil.... More

Ninette's is a family owned establishment that prides itself on good homecooked food. The wait staff is also family, and they will guide you on house specialities like the Broccoli Rabe with linguini! The pizza is a nice thin crust and the toppings are plentiful. It can get a bit noisy on the weekend, and there may be a bit... More

I'm not sure if they drugged the food or if the people giving positive reviews are actually serious... The atmosphere reminds me of the former Mike & Nelly's on Rt.35 in Ocean (which, if anyone remembers, was shut down after being featured on Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares): They play the same CD every night in the same order, the carpets are...

It's a pizzeria on one side, dining room to the right. Good Italian food. The chef will change up your order for you if you want, say, extra spicy or something like that.

Ninette's delivers again! This was our third time here and the food was unbelievably good. We are Italian, so the standards are high, but Ninette's hit the mark for sure. Paul, the owner, even brought a couple of the dishes out himself and made recommendations on what to order. Don't miss out, get to Ninette's ASAP!

This is a good Italian restaurant but it is in a shopping center, so it suffers quite a bit in the charm department. But once inside, the food is better than you might expect.

One of my friends found Ninette on line and we decided to try it while we were in the area on a saturday night. We tried to get a reservation for 6 but were told they didin't accept them. However, they had a table set up for the 6 of us when we arrived. Our food was very good and... More

I have been going to Ninette's with family since I was a kid and it continues to be our go to Italian restaurant. Now that we live out of state, it seems to be a constant when we visit NJ, either eating in the restaurant or taking food to go. Overall, they have excellent marinara sauce, and consistently good pasta... More
