Service is top notch and food is amazing. One of my favorite places. Love that it’s a byob.
Once again the food was delicious and the service impeccable.
Will definitely take more friends here for dinner.
This restaurant never disappoints, food and service excellent and the Chef extremely accomodating with my request for an old special
ALWAYS ONE OF MY FAVS ❤️
Food absolutely delicious. Service stellar too.
Best Italian restaurant in the area. I know it from Brooklyn. I’m very glad it’s here in NJ. Wait staff is exceptional.
Was so excited but, front staff was disorganized on where to seat us. Only 2 waiters on a Saturday night. We waited forever to get the entrees and mine was wrong. I ordered a pasta special and was given filet mignon. I didn’t fuss but took the filet. Extremely noisy where you couldn’t hear yourself think. Certainly not worth the $
We were really looking forward to dining here after it’s reviews and reputation in Brooklyn. We were a little disappointed. Our appetizers were amazing , but 2 out of the 4 dinners were disappointing (Sicilian veal spiedini) . It was dry , had way too much cheese and was very salty. I think we would have gotten over that since the other two entrees were very good , veal Marsala and pasta dish with filet tips - but the service was terrible. Our waiter was not attentive at all , took forever to order , never asked us if we wanted dessert and took forever to get our check. We had an early reservation so it wasn’t very crowded yet. We will try it again though, we understand that many restaurants are short staffed due to covid.
Food is excellent, one of the best in the area we will continue to go here
I went for a birthday dinner with 2 friends. The food was great! I had the wild red snapper, it was fresh & delicious. One friend had the octopus and the mushroom risotto. The octopus was grilled perfectly tender. She also loved the mushroom risotto. My other friend chose the plant-based dish of eggplant which she raved about. The service was very good. It’s a BYOB which is nice. It can get a little noisy when it’s a full house especially. Overall I would definitely recommend it and go there again.
We have been here twice. Service is excellent, food is delicious.
Good was excellent! Service was even better!
Food and Service were Outstanding. There are no other restaurants in the area that compare.
Appetizers were very good, entrees were OK
It was Mom's birthday. Food was delicious and great to see the restaurant packed...we did wait about 10 minutes to sit but no problem as it was well worth it. Service was great. Calamari, grilled octopus and zucchini flower appy's were delicious. Pescatore main dish was terrific as well.
Definitely will be back to this restaurant as all around terrific night out with family.
Great food. I don't mind the noise but it's a lot, not a quiet romantic place. If you are looking for a really good meal. Stop in. Service was a bit on the slow side but it's okay when the food is good, it spaces out the apps from the main course from the coffee and dessert.
great as always
Unfortunately it was so loud our party of 5 couldn’t really talk to each other because it was so loud. Service was great & so was the food.
Wonderful food and great service.
Delicious food, wonderful presentation, and excellent Wait staff! We enjoyed our dining experience and will continue to frequent this establishment and bring our friends! We liked that we were not rushed and our waiter was excellent.
Way too loud for conversation but great food and service.
Great food. Wait staff was experienced and fun! Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will be back.!
We came early but the dining room was filling up pretty quickly as we enjoyed dinner. The service was excellent, as was the food quality.
We will be back soon!
Everything was fantastic. The food was very fresh and delicious. Everyone who works there is always so kind and welcoming. Definitely recommend this restaurant to all.
this was our first time at the restaurant. We were not disappointed. the room was packed at 6:30pm on a Sunday night and there was a steady stream of tables being turned while we were there. there were several large parties when we arrived, so the noise level was high, but it was all celebration excitement. The food, portions, staff and service were really outstanding. its a nice touch that Pasquale (owner), makes
it a point to visit each table to be sure his customers are enjoying their experience.
We enjoyed our evening and spreading the word about this hidden gem so close to home. We'll definitely be repeat customers.
Delicious food and great service! Can’t wait to go back to try more of their wonderful menu.
Made reservations 2 weeks in advance. Arrived 10 minutes prior to time. 45 minutes later, we were told by Hostess, “we will try to accommodate you.” Owner was looking at his seating computer with no accommodation in site. Party of 6,8, and 12 left, we still did not sit down!!
After leaving almost an hour of waiting, Owner calls and said our table was ready. Really Pasquale?! Terrible service. Will never come back.
Oh, and we cancelled our NYE party of 10 reservation.
We had a wonderful dinner last night. The service was top notch. I’ve been to fancier restaurants that do not have service like we had last night. Food was delicious. Will be back very soon.
The food was great, the service was excellent and the place was bustling and lively. I loved it and am looking forward to going back soon!
George our waiter was outstanding from start to finish! Brought friends from Brooklyn and they loved the food!! Will definitely go back!! Great addition to Middletown!
I'll keep it simple, the food and service was top notch. Based on that alone I would highly recommend. However for those of you who avoid restaurants that are extremely loud making conversation challenging this place is not for you at least on the weekends. Can't speak to weekday dining but assuming it may not be as bad. I just don't understand why the owner wouldn't attempt to cull the noise level...
Ridiculously loud- you can’t hear across your own table. Food was fine although it took forever for each course to come out.
Also, no masks anywhere from staff to guests.
Proud to call myself a regular!
Tuna tartare is fantastic!
Been here several times and never disappoints. Owner Pasquale regularly visits tables to greet customers, top notch service and delightful food, regular and special items. Just love this place highly recommend
Excellent food and service, just he noise level gets a little loud
Excellent Italian food, attentive service. Will definitely be back soon!!!
Friendly service , mazing authentic home made Italian food
Greeted by the hostess and wait staff upon entering and enjoyed a great evening of delicious food and exceptional service.., wine and water glasses always filled .. generous portions , nice presentation and very fresh offerings .. seems like everyone was feeling the same in the restaurant.. I had heard great reviews from friends and was not disappointed.. tends to get a bit loud but no different than any other establishments.. check em out !
Our waiter was outstanding
Festive setting. Staff were very attentive. Food was delicious and good portions. A little noisy but was still enjoyable. Will definitely go back.
Besides the amazing food. Alfredo makes the experience more amazing!
