The food and the service are always on par. If you are looking for good old fashioned Italian eats than this is the place for you. If you are looking for an elegant fine dining establishment this is not the place for you. Not that the decor is bad but you definitely go there for the food.

One of THE best Italian restaurants around. Italian restaurants are a dime a dozen. This one exceeds them all. Cozy, friendly atmosphere. THE best Italian "gravy" ever. Do yourself a favor and go to Guerriero's!

Not fancy and in fact looks old and traditional looking. Seating both outside and inside. Simple setting. Furniture is old but comfortable. Quite busy on Wednesday dinner. Neapolitan cooking. Lots of pasta is homemade. Zucchini appetizer and octopus salad is unique and excellent. Snapper special with pasta is so good that I finished the whole plate. BYOB. Very friendly service.... More

Hands Down the Best Authentic Red Sauce Italian Restaurant in Northern NJ. The chef owner,Jack Guerriero,is not only a superb chef, who has his menu perfected but also an incredibly funny, generous and gratious host! On our last visit the couple we were with didn't want to share the Grandma's Gravy Rigatoni with Meatballs and Sausage that I recommended. Jack... More

We stopped off the highway on a road trip, so we probably won't get back there. We noticed many "regulars" eating in the restaurant. The manager was friendly to us even though he knew we were travelers. The servers were efficient. The food was excellent! Started with complimentary marinated white beans on brushetta. Loved the whole roasted garlic cloves in... More

Reservations only and worth the call! Guerriero's has authentic-tasting Italian food. Enjoy the specials, the atmosphere and the owner! He's always around and happy to go out of his way to make sure your dining experience is amazing.

I have been here several times and it never disappoints. I am vegetarian so my options are limited but the pasta with tomato, mozzarella and basil is the best I've ever had. And the cannolis are excellent. As others have noted, it is cash only so be prepared. Reservations are a must for parties of 3 or more. I was... More

Food is consistently good and they do try to make you feel like a regular by checking in and providing personal service. Note that it is cash only, which complicates using it for business dinners--and it's small, so it gets pretty noisy. Parking is only on street, so that can be a nightmare in Morristown during peak dining hours, but... More

By far the most delicious Italian meal I've had during my many visits to New Jersey. Simple ingredients, wonderful flavours and a lively, yet homely vibe, manes this one of the best restaurants I've had the pleasure to eat at. I recommend the meatballs. They're divine!

We stumbled on Guerriero's by accident a few years ago and have returned many, many time since. Guerriero's is a small intimate restaurant located at 162 South St in Morristown. It's a bit nosey, and ALWAYS crowded (which should tell you something about the place!) but the food is the best around!! Jack, the owner, is very friendly and always... More
