Very good Italian restaurant.The atmosphere is friendly and food is great. This is a BYOB which is one of the reasons I like it. Great place to take family or friends.

So wish that I could give them a rave review but despite their efforts, both times that my husband and I patronized this establishment the chef's interpretation of our selected entrees did not live up to our expectations. Sorry :(

Recently went to Brooklyn Bistro with my husband for a night out. Appetizer was great followed by an awesome dinner until the waitress was screaming at the chef- who I believe was her husband at the top of her lungs. Needless to say, it disrupted a nice evening out.

Party of 8 on Saturday night. Each one ordered a different entre. Each was superb. Great service. Truly civilized. A real Italian restaurant. Not a pizza place (although their pizza is delish too!)

The restaurant was lovely, clean and well-decorated. We were greeted and seated immediately, as it was a very early dinner. We enjoyed the mussels appetizer, with delicious homemade breads fresh from the oven. There is a variety offered and we loved each one. Salads were small but sufficient, field greens with a house vinaigrette. We both had Nonni's Lasagna which... More

Absolutely superb cuisine in a lovely little place downtown. We went there for Jersey Shore restaurant week but ordered off the regular menu. Everything was perfect.

Went to the restaurant to try it out for restaurant week. The beet appetizer was sliced so thin you had to scrape it off the plate. Chicken was raw. Dessert was scarce. Very disappointed.

I was somewhat concerned as I tried on successive weekends to use the reservation service listed on the web to make a dinner reservation for 4 on the weekend but was electronically told that there were no reservations within 2.5 hours of my 7pm requests for either a friday or saturday.
