The meals are good, i.e. not bad. It's italian cuisine, but nothing spectacular. The restaurant is quiet, good for business meetings. And the setting is nice, white tablecloth and windows all over the place.

My partner and I attended lunch on Sunday November 27. The design and layout are spacious and elegant---high sceilings, tall mirrors, booths in trellices boxes, sweeping windows. My friend ordered a series of sides wich are very economical---eggs, bacon and delightfully fried potatoes n cheese which were extremely light and flavorful. I had the Seafood Frittata, which was spicy and... More

This is a very high end italian seafood restaurant. The food was absolutely fabulous, although I thought the portion size of my Branzino (sea bass) was a bit on the meager side. Lots of creative dishes with something to satisfy every taste, Even my nephew who eschews anything served on the bone was happy. Service was another story. The wait... More

The food in here is pretty good, and that alone is something of a surprise in this primarily student town. The decor is also pretty nice, prices relatively low and a really good range of options. Came back here the day after!

We dropped in w/o a reservation, but they seated us any way. A nice, interesting menu. Service was impeccable. Eash dish was nicely prepared and presented. The octopus appetizer very tasty, as was the ravioli. One can choose half or whole pasta dishes. Nice panna cotta dessert.

So, Due is a great looking spot - beautiful bar area, high end dining room, plenty of space between the tables, even the bathrooms are first-class. Just to be clear - we have dined here many times and will probably return, but there are serious service deficiencies. The food, especially the house made pasta is, for the most part, very... More

Four of us had dinner on a Monday night and the place was busy. Had a drink at the bar which was nice and then moved to the seating area for dinner. Good wine list. Food was good but for some reason I expected a bit better. Don't get me wrong...it was good and I would surely go back and... More

A large group of us visited Due Mari for dinner. All the standard Italian selections are available and are fresh and served swiftly. We were well looked after and all of us enjoyed our experience.

Due Mari remains a great "go to" lunch and dinner spot in New Brunswick. I continue to be impressed at the consistent, excellent quality of seasonal menus along with the wine selections. Definately a keeper.
