We stopped in here a few days ago after needing a small break from the massive amounts of seafood. When you live in northern New Jersey, you kinda take for granted that pretty much every town has an amazing Italian Restaurant (or several) and begin to realize that when you travel out of state, you have to keep an open mind when comparing to your local specialties. I guess it would be similar to a Mainer ordering lobster out of state, or at a seafood chain restaurant. A realistic person is not going to expect it to be the same as at home. When I said I wanted to try the Spaghetti & Meatballs, and that the reviews were good, my italian wife who grew up with Nana off the boat from Italy gave me a funny look, but I still ordered anyways, and I'm glad I did.
We started out with an order of chicken wings, which was an appetizer special. Seriously, these were some of the best wings I have had. They were big, meaty, cooked perfect, crispy on the outside, and the sauces they used were a great touch. Napkins? No thanks, I licked my fingers clean!
Moving on to the entrees, first thing I thought when the food came out was how big the portions were, and watching the waitress walk by to other tables, you could just see that every dish was piled high. The meatballs were huge, bigger than baseballs, and very tasty. The sauce was homemade, and was also very good.
My wifes chicken dish was great, I only had the chicken because I didn't like the vegetables that were on it. She loved it, and after having a bite of the chicken which was cooked perfectly, I could see why.
Service was fine, our waitress was nice, and Deb the owner was walking around making small talk with everyone.
This would have been a 5 star review, the only reason it's not is they never brought out my wife's soup. We enjoyed the wings so much that we didn't realize until right before the main course came out. Not that big of a deal, we would still definitely go back next time we are in the area.
