This was a delightful interlude on a cold rainy night in November. We were welcomed cordially and escorted to a corner along the back wall. The decor was elegant and the white tablecloths glistened. We ordered from the regular menu, but there were many specials also available. Our calamari appetizer was quite generous, and cooked to perfection.I liked the fact that it was accompanied by two bowls of tomato sauce, not one to share. The entrees arrived steaming hot, and my shrimp francaise overflowed on the bed of linguine. The shrimp were butterflied beautifully and tender to the touch. My companion ordered the stuffed shrimp with potato and fresh vegetables. Also quite good, but i would have expected another shrimp on the plate. We completed our meal with the delectable cream puffs smothered in blankets of chocolate. Wonderful!. The meal was enhanced by a truly amazing waiter who anticipated our every need, and was constantly attentive and helpful. I would have given a total 5 score, but i had a few problems with the lack of lemons for all our fish, and the oversized loaf of bread in the basket. The bread was tasty and warm, but difficult to cut and butter due to its huge width. The large room is a trifle noisy , even on a weekday night, but the delicious food and terrific service will make me a consistant visitor.

Great food - large portions, excellent service, wonderful reputation over many years. As we walked in, they honored our reservation immediately- We sat downstairs because they said it would be quieter. We were able to hear each other talk. The place was crowded - there were plenty of large groups - family and friends gathering. It was bustling. We all enjoyed our dinners. The dinner specials come with a salad, otherwise, it is alacarte. I totally loved my whole fish - Bronzino with roasted veggies and mashed potatoes. It's BYOB. This venue is located in a shopping plaza which needs updating. Don't let it's curb appeal distract you from having a fabulous dinner.

It was an anniversary celebration dinner we had at this fine gem of a Italian restaurant with a small party of five! We were seated promptly after we checked in with our reservation. Our table was at the lower level which was well illuminated and nicely decorated. We had two young wait staff serving us the entire evening and they were both friendly, attentive and kind throughout our two hour dinner!
The owner/operator was rather forgiving when we ordered something that most of our party could not consume but the dish was so well presented to say the least. We were allowed to reorder our dish without any penalty!
Everything was served hot and tasted delicious! There were wide selections of fresh fish and beef entrees in addition to the traditional Italian fares! I totally enjoyed my seafood pasta with generous portion of seafood. We wrapped our dinner up with scrumptious desserts and hot beverages. It was a lovely time and the wait staff added positively to our celebration experience!
By the way, patrons are encouraged to bring their favourite vintage to dinner!

Stopped by LouCas in Edison, NJ for a lunch in November 2016. The salad (picture) was fresh and tasty. The chicken parm was nicely cooked (picture), although I found the sauce to be a bit bland. The ice cream cake dessert (picture) was tasty. The service was excellent.
