“Always a Great Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

I've known Luigi for 20 years from other restaurants where he has worked. Always a smile, always a great meal. I can honestly say that I've never had a bad meal there. From the moment you walk in the door, Luigi, Silvio and the rest of the staff make you feel more than comfortable. They are genuine and sincere and their food is excellent. So bring a bottle of wine, order anything on the menu and enjoy a meal that you are sure to tell your friends about.

“Food just like Grandma use to make.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

Great restaurant. Service staff was very attentive and pleasant. Food was delicious and everyone enjoyed their meal. The specials were great. We went on a Saturday and they were able to handle the crowd with ease. It is small and cozy and will be going back when I am back in South Hackensack. Fun fact..this location was originally Jenny's Luncheonette back in the 1950s and1960s. It then became different Italian restaurants and in the early 1980s New York Yankee Joe DiMaggio used to eat here when he would be in the area when the restaurant here at that time was called Scana's.

“Terrific Menu, Great Food, Wonderful Service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

This is a small restaurant, and you will have to wait. However, it is worth it. I don't usually like waiting for restaurants, but I will do it for this establishment. The food is well-prepared, and if you don't see something on the menu, just ask. It is BYOB, so that is a plus. You can drink what you want and just enjoy the dining experience. From appetizers to desserts everything is prepared and served beautifully. The staff is great. We always feel comfortable there.
