    Treated like FAMILY …so the name tells it all! We went for my son’s college graduation dinner Welcomed and seated immediately Our waiter Tony was EXCEPTIONAL! Personable, knowledgeable and attentive Chewy who brought our food was lovely too! I cannot remember the female who assisted Tony (so sorry) but she was on the ball! We ordered the giant meatball, sea bass special, chicken &veal parm and veal Milanese - delicious They brought a complimentary red velvet cake for the grad- truly unexpected Gary the executive chef stopped by as well I honestly have to say it was the best experience I have ever had at a restaurant Thank you all!

    We’ve been dining at alla famiglia for decades, since it was just the original side of the restaurant, celebrating special occasions throughout the years. We always had wonderful experiences, from the food and bev to the service. Everything has slipped since Covid. We figured it was a supplier issue, but it’s continually gotten worse and, after last night, we won’t be back. We each ordered a martini to start, which is hard to screw up. They added liqueurs, making them cocktails and not martinis. We sent back and the second attempt came out correctly, but only half full in the glasses. They didn’t take off the bill either. We brought a special bottle of wine to celebrate the occasion, and the cork was broken in the process of opening. Then part of the bottle got spilled on the tablecloth as it was poured into the decanter, with no acknowledgment of either accident. The starters have totally changed/shrunk. They used to offer a lovely variety of accoutrements with the bread. The family style salad is no longer. The cavatappi with vodka sauce was severely overcooked — mush-like consistency. The entrees were all mediocre, and much smaller portions. I had the sea bass, and it was a bit fishy and vegetables were like mush. My dad and boyfriend’s steaks were good, but nothing special. Just seems like everything here has slipped.

    We had a $25.00 gift card and were told when paying our bill that the card had a $0 balance. Waitress mentioned that their gift cards sometimes come up $0 and was checked twice with $0 reading. Friend (who is person who purchased the gift card @ the restaurant) was informed about cards $0 balance and called management who supposedly provided another gift card to them for $25.00 via mail. We weren't returning anyway, but this occurrence definitely soured the experience.

    I loved the feel of this restaurant; it was just like being with family. Very attractive rooms with low noise level that helped greatly with conversation. The staff were extremely helpful without being annoying yet made us feel right at home. The restaurant itself was spotless and I always appreciate an open kitchen as this was. I had a special request for an appetizer and the Chef was happy to accomodate me. The Monk fish special was very tasty. The Tagliatelle allo Scoglio were the best I have ever had this side of the Ocean and the Fillet was excellent. Both the Cesear as well as the House Salads were memorable, not just afterthoughts. You will want to book ahead as tables fill up fast. Alla Famiglia will not disappoint; Our meal and evening was excellent on all fronts and we will definitely be returning!

    We chose this restaurant to celebrate my birthday with friends. We all had wonderful meals. I chose the Veal chop Malinese which was the most delicious veal I’ve ever eaten and the house salad was also amazing. This was my first time here but it definitely won’t be my last. I also appreciated our server for recognizing my birthday with an individual little dessert on a plate that said, Happy Birthday.

    Besides our disappointment that we had to order from a set menu and that several items we wanted displayed on the website were not available, the manager and staff were fantastic in catering to what I wanted for my bday dinner. The food was perfect and all the perks given to me for my special day made it over the top. A well-deserved five-star rating for the service and food. Again, many thanks for making my birthday a memorable one.

    My husband and I went to Alla Famiglia to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we had a fantastic dinner! All the food was incredible (the meatball appetizer is a must try), and you get so much of it! Our waiter Mark was so knowledgeable, attentive, and fun. We even got a small complementary dessert for our anniversary. We can't wait to go back!

    Service was excellent. Staff needs a raise from host to waitress to servers. So kind and helpful and not fake. Food was incredibly slow and we filled up on bread and complimentary pasta while we waited. Salads and bread were great. My husband did not care for his food. Friend and I couldn’t even eat he was so full and ended up taking it home. Unfortunate given the price. Love the ambiance. Not my first visit.
