One of the best Italian restaurants around. Food was fabulous. Michael our server was informative, friendly, great recommendations. Seafood salad and fig and burrata were so delicious. So fresh. Nonna’s Sunday gravy delicious. Highly recommended. Can’t wait to return.

I have been a frequent customer at Patricia’s and they never disappoint! The food is always on point, incredibly delicious and always makes me begging for more. While I’ve never had bad service there, Chelsea went above and beyond to make my dad’s birthday special. She is truly one of a kind and we hope that we have her as our server when we return.

booked Patricia's for sister's retirement dinner with immediate family (7) as we had been there several times with great results and I am happy to say, no surprises.... Very nice booth was ready for us...service was attentive as it was on the way to the kitchen but still missed picking up empties placed at the end of the table on the way past...not a dealbreaker but otherwise good...the food was great as usual (especially the charred octopus, yum!), well-paced. Would definitely recommend for for small party. Will return and often.

Patricia's is a family restaurant so there are often large parties celebrating events. This energizes the experience while allowing enough intimacy for small groups or couples to celebrate a birthday or anniversary. The food is always delicious and portions large enough to take some home. The staff is friendly and professional seeing to details like putting a sparkler in your birthday cake and cutting it to accommodate your guests. They are busy so reservations are strongly recommended.

I absolutely LOVE Patricia’s! We don’t go as much as we’d like because it is pricey but understandable for the quality of food. Coupons?? :-)

It's wise to have reservations for Patricia's. We had 4:30 reservations for Saturday
evening. We arrived at 4:30 and the restaurant was already busy. When we left at
7:30 the place was packed and people were waiting on line to get seated.

Went for my birthday, my husband would have done better letting us order one of their desserts instead of bringing a dry cake, besides they had key lime pie. Veal Piccata was fabulous and the iceberg wedge was wonderful. My husband loves the lasagna and minestrone soup.

Overall we had a very enjoyable evening for our first time dining at Patricia's. The menu was wide enough to satisfy a steak lover and a vegetarian and the prices were in line with the portions and level of food served. Our waitress was a bit too snooty for my liking but the service was quick and well timed between courses. They have the tables a bit close together which contributes to a louder than preferred noise level but all in all would definitely go back and would recommend.

The food is good at Patricia's but the prices are out of line, the atmosphere is a step above cafeteria grade, and the service is sub par. Should dinner with your special someone, without drinks cost you $150+? Maybe on a special occasion but not very often. The restaurant largely consists of one large room with wall-to-wall tables (no dividers). We were escorted to a table for four towards the center of the room. We asked to be seated at an empty table for two that we spotted against the wall but they wouldn't accommodate us. We had to ask the server twice to get an ice bucket, and forget about getting automatic refills to your water glass. For many dishes Patricia's has passed the point where I am willing to shell out my hard earned money for an entree. I guess because its BYOB they feel they can charge outrageous prices. Even a chicken dish can cost you $30. Forget strip steak ($39), the veal chops ($45), and even short ribs ($38). Seafood is equally pricey. If you stick to the pasta dishes and pizza, the cost of eating at Patricia's won't be too outrageous. But why should you have to do that, oh and you also you have to avoid desserts and hot beverages. Herbal tea will run you $4 and what they call cobbler (which was really not much more than a 1" pie-like, wedge-shaped morsel was $10! All in all, not a place that justifies its high ratings. It does draw crowds and I can only guess its because of its location (not many Italian restaurants to compete with in Holmdel).

The menu was complemented by the specials and made ordering a tough choice as there were many interesting items. Service was fast and friendly and the birthday candle was really special.

Took my 28 year old twin daughters for their birthday celebration and sat in one of the booths. The feeling of togetherness, service and food was great. Waiter brought the girls a little sparkler fountain which just made everything memorable.

Wonderful evening with family. The food was exceptional as was the waiter and staff. We had a busboy named Nick that was always on top of our water, bread and extra needs. The waiter recommended desserts which we declined, but he was so intriguing when he recommended them once more, that we changed our minds, and are happy we did. The Cobbler was exceptional, the food delicious...service was great!
