An amazing find while visiting on business. Food was amazing, great local restaurant. Must visit if you are in Newark area. Atmosphere was good, and they have private parking, very rare here. We passed 3 other restaurants before landing here. Happy accident.

Food is amazing, service is excellent, just plan to be here for awhile - definitely not an in-and-out type of dining experience. There is No rush, but it makes for a very pleasant night out with your significant other or friends. They are also very accommodating - had a party of about 15 here a few years ago - everyone...

Everyone's food was delicious. The ravioli I ordered melted in my mouth, and the meatballs were excellent. Service was top notch. Atmosphere was very friendly.

The service at the restaurant was excellent. Bread, olives and peppers brought to table were good. There was a nice menu and the restaurant was nice - not too fancy but very nice small place. Prices were good. The food was good with pasta cooked perfectly and chicken parm cooked well. I was just looking for a bit more flavor... More

We just happened upon this place via Google search, with protesting teenagers, but all were pleasantly surprised by our experience. We were greeted and seated promptly, had our water glasses constantly refilled (a mark of attentive service, in my opinion), and a large loaf of fresh bread and house salads. The owner was there to answer our questions....and then we... More

I have been here a few times previously and experienced the same great meals and service. Small dining room, not far from EWR. Good place to get away from your airport hotel restaurant. Have had fish bud pasta here and they did not disappoint. Staff is great and drinks are strong. As it is small, it is rather quiet -... More
