Delicious entrees..many specials to choose from as well as an extensive menu. The dessert is to die for ; the bakery is attached to the restaurant creating pure heaven

This is a BYOB restaurant. The food is absolutely amazing and the pastries are to die for!! Small, cozy atmosphere..do yourself a favor and make a reservation. The staff is the best and the owner is the best guy..he treats his customers very well. If you are looking for a great place then you need to try it! Don't forget... More

We eat here very often, and always find it to be the most authentic Italian restaurant we've found outside of Italy. Food (especially the grilled octopus) is always great, and Pasquale is a wonderful host. Well worth the wait.

I have to tell you, I've tried to get into Regina Margherita a couple of times before on the weekend (without a reservation) and I didn't stand a chance. People were streaming in regularly while I was waiting for the rest of my family, and that led me to have very high expectations when I was finally able to walk... More

Make sure you make your reservation so you don't miss out on a great meal. The staff is friendly and anything you choose for your meal will be delicious.

We're a couple of neapolitan expats desperately looking for taste of home. We found it. Beyond all expectations. Seafood Scialatielli like we rarely found at home. Crabmeat paccheri maybe even better. The baba is the best I've had in the last 10 years, so soft and yet not too airy. We'll be regular customers from now on. Better to book... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant on the recommendation of a colleague. He raved about this restaurant and the bakery next door. We were not disappointed at all. We had the fried calamari as an appetizer. I had the chicken parm (took some home to my son who loves it) and my husband had the steak and lobster tail.... More
