Great food, lovely aesthetic, music fits the ambience. I’ve never felt like I’m being pushed out and this place provides true authentic Italian dining with just this.

Hard to get dinner reservations on St. Valentine's Day anywhere, but Mid afternoon worked for us here. Food was excellent (as always). Service was perfectly timed. House wines are a cut above others.

Cafe Navona is a special restaurant. From Marco’s welcome you are made to feel as if you’re family and this is a special gathering.

The food is fantastic. There is a broad menu, and always several specials to entice you.

The service is professional, yet friendly. There is great pride of the house, and once you’re done this will all be clear.

Mangiare e fatta grossa!

This was a first time visit for us as we are new to the area. The service from the moment we walked in until we left was great! The table came with bread and bruschetta on the table which was amazing. All of our menu choices were delicious except the lasagna which was over cooked and a bit dry.

Why would anyone enjoy sitting in kitchen doors view-not a pretty site for this restaurant
Food ok not worth the price should have went to LA Strada for the price and better atmosphere

It is amazing but Navona keeps getting better and better. Also I keep finding new favorite dishes. But I have a simple pleasure, my wife and I sit down with a drink. Have some amazing thin slices garlic bread. Then we order the house salad. I get is with anchovies. This time I had NJs best Chicken Parmigiana. Writing this is making me hungry. I think I will repeat this Saturday night. Thanks Marco

Will always be a favorite for my husband and I. Love the maite d as well as the piano playing in the background. Not to mention the food is always amazing, The service was a bit slower than normal for some reason but since that's not the norm we will be back as usual.

Food, atmosphere and overall experience was great. The manager or owner welcomed us right when we walked in. I was surprised that they had such a nice bar area as well as a dining area. My boyfriend got the veal and I got the gnocchi VERY good. outstanding. The wine list was nice too, we got a bottle of wine. Wish they had more dessert options but other than that it was great. We will be back for sure!

Business Lunch on Veterans Day. It was my first time there, I chose the restaurant for its location. Facility was nice, right on Rt 46 in NJ, easy to find. Wait staff was friendly and efficient, however it was the first day for our waitress and she failed to tell me that the Arugula Salad I ordered as an appetizer, was exactly the same as the salad that came on my Entre. Small mistake but I wish I had known, I would have tried something else.

Pleasant staff, outstanding food, nice interior and relaxing live piano music. I had the steak which was tastefully prepared and honestly steak doesn’t get any better. Others had three different pasta dishes which they loved. Desserts are worth the calories.

Great Date night location fairly quiet with background piano music. Food and service were excellent. The cost was slightly high for the value of the food but there are limited option in the area so would return and recommend to friends.

We wondered why we haven’t been there in awhile!!! Just great. Food, service and drinks were great. Italian bread was great ( maybe warmed ) but really fresh. Had the lamb which we are still raving about. That’s why they have been there for years. Great place. If the owner is reading this, thank you for a great night
