This is a restaurant that has been around for quite a while in Fort Lee. I had been here many years ago and forgot about it, but my recent visit was actually better than I remembered it.
To start with, the service is excellent. They are friendly, attentive, and quite fast. It definitely feels like a friendly neighborhood restaurant and the decor is nothing extraordinary, but certainly comfortable. They start you off with garlic bread and follow it with salad, which were both good but nothing to write home about.
We tried the garlic shrimp and grilled calamari for apps, and again, not the best, but pretty good. The portions are pretty good though. As for the entrees, that is where the meal really came together. The penne ala vodka was good, but the filet of sole oreganato was very tasty. The linguine with clams was also surprisingly very good. And the other members in my party ordered the sea bass and fettuccine, and both were very happy with their meals. And the portions were pretty good too.
I'd say that the overall rating is a 4 because service is 5 stars, food is 4 stars, and the atmosphere is also 4 stars. I'd also give the overall value 4 stars as well. So all in all, a 4 star experience. But I will say that for a restaurant in NJ, it's pretty darn good. Definitely will be back.
