Stopped here with friends on our way to a show at NJPAC. Nice little place. Good service...wine & food was good but certainly not anything gourmet. Dining room gets quite noisy as the place fills up...looks like a lot of local families come in to eat.

Nice service good wine and great pizza. Good place for a family dinner. Or a meeting with a group of friends. The pizza compares well to the Star pizza.

I was dragged to this place several times about 5-6 years ago, and I thought it was terrible. I heard they did one of those bar/restaurant reality shows and got better. We went after playing golf one night, and sat at the bar. Friendly service, but food was just ok. They are improved from the past, but I wouldn't go... More

We had dinner at Starlight a few nights ago. It has been somewhat updated with new wall coverings and new upholstery on the chairs, But the rest is the same old...The menu was okay, and the food prep was okay, but certainly nothing special to tout. The service was very good, and the server was very nice. Perhaps he was... More

Perfect thin crust Italian Pizza! Simple with cheese only...nothing simple about a pizza this good! The big surprise was how great the wings were. We added them as an afterthought. Wow! Loved them, crispy, spicy, hot and fresh.

Stuck in traffic and needing to eat I stopped at this place as it has apparently undergone some renovations at least from the outside. Located at a busy intersection of Mt Pleasant Way and Pleasant Valley Road, the small parking lot and the adjacent strip mall make it unappealing and crowded looking. However, with time on my hands I took... More

Service was staggered, old-school Italian with limp pasta and too much sauce. Breading on the eggplant was too heavy and it was lukewarm. In an area that boasts so many really good Italian restaurants, it's just not worth it to eat here. I would not come again nor recommend it.

We wanted this to be a great experience. Family was visiting from out of town, and we all have fond memories of Starlite. Disappointment from the trash in the planters out front, to the cracked front window, to the lack of a greeting upon entering. Restaurant got a nice sprucing up after the recent renovation, but was nearly deserted at... More
