We've gone to Eccola many times over the past 22 years! Last week was our anniversary so we were looking forward to our evening out. The service is competent but not warm anymore. The big disappointment though was that favorite appetizer "grilled calamari !" They now cut it up into pieces instead of the steak. It was dry and tough,... More

The quality is top shelf... albeit a little pricey. The Branzini was fresh and excellent. Service - Top shelf, too! Didn't hurt that Erik Estrada (Ponch from CHips) stopped by our table for a photo op. :)

While on a business trip, my co-workers took me to dinner at Eccola. Once past its strip mall location, the interior of the restaurant is absolutely gorgeous. My Caesar salad and sweet potato gnocchi were outstanding. I ordered a glass of Sangiovese, and it was sufficient. My only complaint (and reason for the 4-star review) was due to the coffee... More

I had lunch at Eccola last week. It is probably the 30th time I have eaten there in the last 3 years and it has never disappointed. It is not cheap but everything is good starting with the sourdough bread. I guess their biggest specialty is their grilled calamari. I love it and always order it as dish to share... More

Place needs a external makeover, main dish gets 4 stars everything else 2 to 3. First off the place is no major bargain, my appetizer was average, service average. If you want to be a high end bar get rid of the nuclear red cherries.

A romantic place for couples to have a great meal for about $100. I take my wife here about once per month. My wife is a food snob, and she is consistently blown away by what the chefs are doing here. The service is very good and very personal. I've noticed that they are especially nice to those they're used... More

They make their own pasta so their al dente can really stand an extra minute of cooking. There was a birthday party going on and the service... well rarely do we wait 25 min for the check. The white clam sauce was prefect as was the macaroni with asparagus and salmon despite the pasta being tough. Very nice owners or... More

While in Parsippany at a business trip I had the pleasure to dine at Eccola. The decor, quality of the food, and service were good. Ambiance was pleasant and the food quite tasty.

I first visited this place on a friend's recommendation 4 years ago. I have thanked her ever since! Fantastic Italian food (and that's saying something in North Jersey!) at reasonable prices. Great polite service! Don't let the bad outside decor prevent you from entering ... inside it's an oasis of delicious eating!

Thank Lauri F
