“Wonderful Surprise! Great Restaurant!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

A friend recommended this little gem of a restaurant. Not much to look at but who cares! The food was spectacular! And the service was above par. You must try the stuffed artichoke and take advantage of the daily specials which are not the typical "red sauce" dishes you find all over North Jersey. I've been told that this restaurant that has a similiar name to the one right next door (and is rated #1 on TA ranking) is better! Give it a try. You wont' be disappointed!

“Amazing food, friendly service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

I would beg/borrow/steal a ride to come back to this restaurant and have the chicken dish.

This is a unassuming little restaurant; the decor isn't much to talk about. There's another restaurant with a very similar name right next to this one. Our server was really warm and friendly and rattled off the long list of specials. She answered all our questions politely.

They served us the complimentary bread/olive oil and bruschetta (which was good). We ordered a mix of dishes; seafood risotto, veal risotto, seafood linguini and the most amazing dish of all (unfortunately I can't remember it's name) chicken with sausage/potatoes/peppers. I had the seafood risotto which was nice as well, but I wish I had ordered the chicken. It was so juicy and flavorful.

To top it off, we were served slices of melons and mini cannoli for dessert. I was eyeing the cannolis but was too full to order. So the mini cannolis were just a perfect
touch to end our meal.
