Zagat review: After three decades, this dependable (if hard-to-find) Freehold Italian BYO maintains its old-world ways with a classic menu of quality items served by an excellent dining room team. The elegant decor lends it special-occasion status.

La Cipollina is an upscale restaurant in the heart of Freehold. The outdoor patio is very comfortable, shady, and has fans to move the air. The food is excellent and they give you more than enough.
Three of us shared an app, we had the ceasar salad and all of us had the Chicken Scarpiello with sausage and risotto. Delicious.
All 3 of us took home a box of left overs.

Amazing. Everything was delicious even our daughter’s chicken fingers. My husband had the pork and I had the French chicken. All the meat was tender and well marinated. The service was professional, prompt, and very friendly.

Celebrated my daughter’s birthday. Due to the rain the people sitting under the edge of the canopy did get wet and there was some water leaking from the canopy when the rain stopped. I would suggest you try to move the table located at the edge a little further under the canopy. Otherwise it was a great experience.

I was truly shocked and extremely angered after having dinner at the restaurant on Saturday night. My family and I (3 of us) had finished our meal and paid our bill when a waiter (or perhaps the manager) came over to our table and asked if there was something wrong with the service we received. I said “no” and was told by this person that we only gave a 15% tip and it was customary to give a 20% tip. I could not believe my ears that he would have the nerve to approach me and essentially accuse me of not giving the right amount of tip. Who is he to tell me how much tip I am supposed to give? Who he is to embarrass me in front of other diners who were right there when he chastised me for "not leaving enough tip." I calculated the tip we left on our $92 meal and it was 17%. This is not appropriate behavior for anyone at a restaurant to tell a diner that they had "not left enough tip!!!" This is totally outrageous, and I will NEVER dine at the restaurant again. Customers need to feel valued and not judged when they eat dinner at a restaurant.

Service was awful. Slow. Ignored. We asked to have bread basket toasted and was told " no, we serve our bread cold ". We were a table of 8, waiter couldn't open our wine bottles, no menus, ran out of specials. We asked for more bread and was told no, we ran out (?) Very bizarre.
Food was good, tho.

Have had many nice dinners at La cipollina the other night we had filet mignon which was delicious the spinach was cooked perfectly with garlic and we also had the excellent chicken scarpiello which the gravy was delicious. bread was delicious we do not get an appetizer or dessert at this time. There used to be pesto with the bread, haven't seen it in a while and we loved it. Staff is always nice.

This was one of my favorite places to celebrate with the family. We were always more than happy with everything. This time around we had the worst experience. The place wasn’t too busy as we arrived around 8:30. We weren’t greeted by our waiter till 9:15. The food was less than mediocre and the service was poor. While the table next to us was constantly cleaned and served we were not. My guests stated that they would have never come there if it wasn’t for my recommendations. So dissatisfied
