Friendly staff and delicious food made this birthday dinner extra special. Everyone enjoyed their pasta dishes and desserts. Great specials at the bar and dinner. Definitely will go back.

Quaint and nicely decorated restaurant, including linen table cloths and napkins. Service is great and attentive. Food was excellent. Prefer well done steaks and the filet mignon cut like butter and tasted great along with fresh zucchini, carrots, onions, roasted potatoes, and Italian bread. The roasted beet salad over arugula, with oranges, pineapple, nuts and craisins is excellent. Mixed drinks... More

We are big fans of Johnny Piancone's for their delicious food and large portions. The Sunday sauce is particularly tasty and my kids will act like angels if they are told they might get to have the spaghetti and meatball for dinner. One huge meatball in the middle of their pasta always gets their eyes to light up. We really... More

My friends and I frequent this restaurant whenever we go to the NJ Rep theater which is about every two months. They even give a 10% discount to theater goers. Fantastic! However, this is not the reason we frequent this establishment. The service, quality of food, variety of dishes, cocktails are superb.Free parking in the rear. I strongly advise that... More

My fiancé had a surprise party here for me. The upstairs dining area was great. Has its own bar. Plenty of room. Had about 50 people. Italian food is very good. Steaks as well. Drinks well poured. Staff friendly and attentive. Been here numerous times. It's always good. Plenty of parking in the rear municipal lot. Great for special occasions... More

Made a FRI night reservation, no problem. Started with the antipasto appetizer--enough for the table of four. Served on a large cutting board, offered a nice variety. Everything was fresh. The bread was excellent as well. I enjoy a good Bolognese, and the fettucine Bolognese did not disappoint. Large portions. My wife had the soft shell crab--generous portions and very... More

I absolutely love this place! The food is fresh and made to order(even my crazy requests). It's a cozy restaurant with a fantastic staff. The host is incredibly kind and accommodating and even remembered us after our first visit, he also knows our "regular" table. This has become me and my boyfriends go-to spot for date night and recently I... More

Great food, wonderful service. Our waiter, Nick, was very pleasant, and efficient. There were ten of us, so it was no easy task. We all had different food, and everyone was well satisfied. Stuffed portobello, excellent. Some of us had the price fixed menu. Terrific deal. Well worth a visit.

Terrific early bird complete dinner, including soup, salad, entrée, desert and coffee. Very active bar area. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice atmosphere. Food has been very good each time that I have eaten there. Look for parking in the rear as on-street parking is difficult.

The four of us came in the Fall and now in June and July 2016 prior to attending the N.J. Rep Theater on B'way also. There is a discount if you have ticket receipt. We have loved the lentil soup and pasta fagoili are hearty and beyond excellent. The spendi appetizer is large and delicious. No name salad should be... More
