This northern NJ restaurant continues to deliver a classy atmosphere and fine dining. New owners took over in 2013 but wisely or fortunately kept the top waiters and chef Filomeno(?). In a sea of Italian restaurants this is a standout. Service is very good, never in the way, always aware (Marco, Bennie?). Any previous reviews on poor service seem to have been written by a competitor! Though I will admit that regulars got a little extra attention from the owner and chef.
Standout starters this time was an Arugula, Braesola and Parmesan salad, light Gnocchi in a light tomato sauce. All the pastas are good, perfectly slightly al dente. Excellent main of very good veal in a masparpone sauce.
Happily, they still make the best Zabaglione with Strawberries and another of Crepes - both prepared tableside.
The restaurant is attractive and even when the bar got busy the noise in the restaurant area was imperceptible. Comfortable chairs, tables not crowded.
Perhaps a few more less expensive wines can be added.
A winner in all ways
