The bread brought to the table is one of the best. And their pizza beats all others. Regular meals can be hit or miss but who cares if you have the bread and the pizza.

I've been going here for 5 years and this is hands down the best "ITALIAN" pizza in Jersey. This isn't your typical NY style "American" pizza. My family owns a few pizzerias in NJ and Italy and this is as close to the real thing as you're going to get. Pasquale is a great host and I'll keep going back because in addition to the great pizza, the rest of the food is great as well. Very casual place, family and group friendly, just expect a wait on the weekends, even if you have a reservation, it gets pretty packed. I also recommend trying the Baba' from their bakery, its very good. You can't go wrong here.

Well, when they first opened up I tried them and was very impressed with the quality of food and friendly staff. But, as time has gone by (just a few years) I've been disappointed more and more. It's really a shame. But, if you want a quick meal with decent food and you can bring your own wine, then give it a try. Otherwise, i wouldn't recommend it. (Oh yeah, if you live close, just walk because the parking is always terrible.)

Can Italian food get much better than this?

Great little place in Nutley offering fresh, home made Italian food as brick oven pizza. Not getting pizza would be a mistake but ONLY getting pizza would be a sin. Start out with a pizza for the table and enjoy one of the home made pasta dishes or any of the meat or fish for dinner. We have never been disappointed in this restaurant except when trying to get a table without a reservation on a weekend. Reservations are a must and even then you may wait up to an hour for your table. But it is well worth it. Just be prepared.

Try one of the desserts from their very own attached bakery and sit outside on the patio on a nice night. As someone critical of Italian food (no one makes it like mom does) this place may be the best in New Jersey.

This places is also known as Queen Margherita.
