Don't let the name fool you. This is an outstanding Italian restaurant. Went there for dinner last night and it was outstanding from the moment we walked in until our departure. There is plenty of parking. Beautiful, classy, upscale decor, great bar, spacious dining room, a gorgeous banquet room, great service and not overpriced. We had reservations but arrived early...

You can always make a special request if you don't see something you want on the menu. I asked for Chicken Giambotta and it was delicious. My wife had the short ribs which were also very good. We ordered a stuffed artichoke which was just average. This is a nice place with good service that is clean and fun.

The food is excellent. I've been here several times, and always go with the daily special. Genuine Italian style that tastes great.

Loved the atmosphere, food is prepared fresh to order. Recommend to all for any occasion. Dominic is a classic example of old style hospitality.

This was the worst restaurant I've ever been to. Ownership actually made our waitress pay for a meal they never served. They did remove a $12 pitcher of Diet Coke and 1 desert after telling us all deserts were on the house. We will all never be back!

We sat at the bar the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, they picked out a perfect Pinot G for my wife... More

Fantastic little place close to MetLife and the Meadowlands Hilton. Service was fantastic and the food was amazing. The rigatoni and the Sunday Gravy is AMAZING!! We also had bruschetta that was wonderful. Got a canoli to go and ate it later in the evening. Fantastic desserts made by the wonderful lady who was our server.

Many years ago we were regulars at Al Di La on Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair, NJ. We moved out of state...and Dominic moved the restaurant to East Rutherford. He tells us he's soon to change the name to "Grazie" -- I hope Tripadvisor is able to link reviews to the new name! Dined here in late September, and though there... More

Worst experience EVER. First on the way in we saw a dead cockroach on the floor and I nearly walked out. The service was bad but even worse was when I said my chicken was still uncooked, they brought the chef out of the kitchen, who I think was the owner and this older Italian guy started to debate my...
