“GREAT MOTHERS DAY DINNER!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2013

My wife and i along with our children and grandchildren just ate at this restaurant for the first time today. Since my daughter lives in Secaucas, we wanted to find a restaurant within that area. My wife found this restaurant through trip advisor(she looks no where else for reviews) and we all had a fabulous meal!!!! The special Mothers day menu was wonderful and quite reasonable for the quality of the food. Our server Diego was very sweet and very attentive to our needs. We will return to Piazza Margherita with our bottle of wine and enjoy the wonderful food and service!!!!

“Great Neighborhood Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2013

My husband and I have driven past this restaurant dozens of times usually on our way to another eatery. Last Friday we decided to try Piazza Margherita and it was wonderful. We had to wait a while for a table as it was packed but we had the band to listen to while waiting. They played a variety of oldies, classics, requests and Italian songs. At some point it was a true sing-along; some people even danced on the small dance floor. The waiter was friendly, service was attentive and food was excellent. It's BYO with a small parking area. The owner circulates around if things are not to your liking. The tables are close and it's like dining with family once you get singing and drinking!

“High Quality Italian Fare In Lyndhurst”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2013

We live in Pennsylvania, but we have family in northern New Jersey and we visit them often. When we do, we usually go out for dinner to talk, reminisce, and just enjoy each others' company. We had tried several restaurants in the area, and we found some good ones and some just so-so, but we eventually agreed that we all enjoyed Piazza Margherita more than the others. At that time (a few years ago) it became our default location.

We had always enjoyed our meals here, and we were a little apprehensive when the ownership changed hands last year, Still, we wanted to give the new owners an opportunity to prove themselves, and we are glad that we did.

The food, which was always good, has gotten even better. The new owner brought in a new chef who does an excellent job and who is very interested in making certain that his customers are happy. It is not unusual for the chef to come out to the dining room and make the rounds of the tables, asking each group about their dinners. That is unusual in these times, and I believe that it reflects his interest in producing the best possible dining experience for his customers.

The owner of the restaurant does the same thing, and he has come to our table several times to inquire if we are happy with our meals. This high level of interest by both the chef and the owner is reassuring, and it should make a very good restaurant even better.

They do not have a liquor license, so patrons can bring their own wine, which we do. This is another plus for us, and Piazza Margherita will most likely remain our favorite restaurant in the Nutley/Clifton/Lyndhurst area in the future.

The tables are spaced comfortably, which is unusual for this area where most restaurants try to cram in as many tables as possible, and thus put you too close to the folks at the next table. The service is always good here, and they have their own parking lot on the premises, which is a definite advantage in a neighborhood that has very little legal street parking.

I am not afraid to recommend Piazza Margherita to others.

“A Great Night Out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2013

Come to Piazza Margherita for fine food, excellent service and great entertainment. I have spent New Year's Eve here and had such a great dinner with our friends. We have brought another couple two weeks ago, and we had an excellent dinner, and the band played a variety of music. Not only did we sing along, but we danced among the tables. If you are interested in a fun evening out with great food. great waiters (Diego & John), great entertainment, bring your own wine and dance shoes and come to Piazza Margherita you will have a wonderful evening They aim to please. Talk to Christina, she will make your reservation. She is the owners daughter. You cannot go wrong. The singer, John is the best, he sings songs in Italian, as well as Elvis, the Beatles, and all the oldies you can imagine. This is the place to bring another couple or two if you have time to have a great meal, and enjoy a perfectly great night out.

“Great food, good price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2013

My wife and I went to Piazza Margherita in Lyndhurst for lunch last week. What attracted me was the $10.95 lunch special price. What I did not expect was the really nice atmosphere, the attentive waiters and the great Italian food ! There was plenty to choose from and each course was delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant ! Anne & John Wascoe
