A 5:00 p.m. seating was perfect to enjoy a delicious and beautifully presented meal without a rush for a 7:00 p.m. curtain at the theater. Distinctive tastes and ample portions. Courteous, attentive and professional service. Wonderful!

This is our "go to" restaurant in the Summit/Short Hills/Chatham area. Service is superb. Food is excellent. Specials are always good. The owners treat you like family. Can't say enough good stuff.

The food and service is excellent. I also like the fact it's BYOB. The down side is parking could be a problem but it's worth hassle. The Resturant is a but noisie.

Jacket and tie not required, but you may be more comfortable with a jacket only. Women are usually comfortable in a nice dress but not formal. Jeans are out.

Yes, La Foccacia does offer gluten free pasta and they have plenty of dishes that don't contain shellfish. I'm sure that they can suggest options or modify recipes to acommodate any other dietary restrictions you may have.
