There are two doors off the lobby. Staff was near the door on the right and encouraged us to come in on that side. That turned out to be the fancy side with table cloths. We had looked at the menu online and really just wanted some hot subs or cheesesteaks. The menu we were offered was nothing like the online menu. Different dishes in some cases and no sandwiches. There were lunch specials which were decently priced, so we ordered anyway. Salads arrived with, I guess, the house dressing. It actually was very good. The first bread basket had several slices of cold, dry, mildly stale bread. We asked for a refill and the second basket had fresh, warm bread slices. Our pasta entrees were fine. Even with lunch sized portions, our meal came to nearly $40 with food, tax, and tip.

As we left, we tried the door to the left in the lobby. Lo and behold, you enter into a typical NJ red sauce restaurant with the extensive menu you see online. If you want a red sauce place with sandwiches, pizza, slices, salads, etc., make sure you go in the left hand door off the lobby. If you want a more upscale place, go in the right hand side.

A birthday was the theme for a party held recently in Capuano's. The catering menu had many dining options for all budgets--we chose to have three appetizers served family style (clams, garlic bread and mozzarella sticks). There were 4 entrée choices--a traditional red-sauce Italian entrée, a fish (Tilapia), a vegetarian and a chicken. No one was disappointed with their food. They do have whole wheat pasta for those who prefer a healthier option. We paid an additional amount for dessert which included homemade tiramisu, cannoli, and ricotta cheese cake. We all could have finished off additional trays of these goodies. The afternoon proceeded at a steady pace--courses were brought out at appropriate times. I was very pleased with Capuanos.

Six for Sunday night dinner. Service was a ten.
For our main dish four of us had fish, very good. Two of us had veal parmigiana with a side of pasta.
The veal was over cooked and was a huge disappointment. Did not complain to manager however we will never return to this restaurant.

Just an average pizza place in Central Jersey, but the quality of fuood is very descent. Pizza was really delicious, so it worth a shot to stop there and eat. The place itself is also Okay, nothing extraordinary, but if you searching for an typical italican place - you won't be dissapointed by stopping there
