Julio's is a great neighborhood local restaurant. Fish is always fresh!! A chopped salad and fresh italian bread is served with every entrée. The alcoholic drinks are generously poured. Good and pleasant wait service. Julio the owner is always there to make sure everything runs smoothly. Prices are reasonable. A pleasant evening is assured at this West Orange local neighborhood...

We have eaten here several times in the past and have always enjoyed the meal. It has a large room with many booths on the side with several tables in the center. Specials are announced (with no prices given - and then feeling somewhat embarrassed by asking) prior to the order taken. The menu is extensive but confusing. There are... More

Julio's is flat out the best Italian restaurant in the West Orange area. The menu is diverse, and the portions are nicely sized. They have all the basic Italian dishes plus your not so basic ones. I recommend the Chef's Giambotta - chicken, steak and sausage with peppers, onions, potatoes, etc. - a real country style dish. They have a... More

Had dinner which was very nice. Easy parking and nice ambience. I had shrimp parm ........which was the best I ever had. The oysters were very tasty and fresh. Service was very attentive and friendly. Restaurant was full but not noisy. All in all a good experience.

Its current location in a strip mall on Mt. Pleasant Avenue in West Orange is the third version of Julio's which I have frequented. Julio, who many years ago, was a bartender at Nero's in Livingston, is somewhat of an anachronism in the restaurant business with his loud polyester shirts; his dining establishment with very basic versions of southern Italian...

Located in a small strip mall with ample parking. The owner is friendly and has an excellent restaurant with full bar. Make a reservation for the weekend and enjoy a great meal

Average decor and food. Attentive wait staff. Lots of very fresh fish on the menu. Tried the sangria, of which I'm not usually a fan, on the recommendation of friends and was pleasantly surprised. Entrees came with house salad which we didn't know until they arrived or I'm not sure some of us would have ordered other salads as starters.... More
