This was my first first to this restaurant and they do have a couple around this part of New Jersey.
I have always thought of the name synonymous with bakery's not restaurants, that is how bad I am. Well on a heavy rainy evening we ventured forth to meet up with some friends who had picked this restaurant to have dinner. They are located inside of a Best Western Hotel, so we were skeptical at first, but that oon past, as soon as we entered the restaurant. It was rather crowded but we were seated immediately with our reservation. The waiter came to our table fairly promptly and took our drink orders. then came back and we ordered our main selections. Lobster Ravioli, Chicken Milanese, Pollo Arrabiata, Veal special, and a penne special. While we were served delicious cheese encrusted baked loaves of bread along with olive oil, the wait seemed very long. We continued our conversation, albeit a bit noisy, it took what felt like 30 minutes to receive our entree's. Then they finally came, four of them minus one. We all looked at each other and politely waited for the last dish to arrive, but after a few moments we realized we would have to remind someone that we were still waiting for a final dish. At that moment the Manager came by noticing the situation and she immediately apologized and said she will take care of it, and of course the meal will be on the restaurant since this was not their normal service. One additional minute or two and out came the order, again with the manager standing near by to apologize. That attentiveness made the experience more comforting, and for that
alone I would come back.
Now as far as the food was concerned, the arrabiata should have come out much spicier than it did, it was rather bland. The Lobster Ravioli looked nice and the guest enjoyed it very much. The other comments were good as well.
Coffee was served in small cups, and at 2.95 for regular coffee, we all thought that this was somewhat high.
All other entrees were in the low 20's which seemed fine.
We would all go back, since the overall experience was a good one.
