“Simply delectable”
Reviewed 19 December 2013 via mobile

I met some friends here for lunch today and we had a outstanding meal. We shared some appetizers so calamari mussels and Caesar salad. The grilled snapper special was perfectly prepared and we consumed it in record time. The very Italian cuisine lives up to its reputation.

“Premiere League Food, Bush League Service”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

We attended a surprise 60th birthday party that included a party of 13 diners. The meal was served family style and the table was stocked with homemade and commercially made wine since this is a BYOB. For starters there was a bruschetta served with some cheese cubes and olives. Second came the fried calamari, third the pasta and last the two entrees of shrimp on a fish filet and filet mignon.

The bruschetta was average, the calamari was very tender but had just a tad too much coating, the rigatoni was done just right in an oil and herb based sauce, the shrimp / fish filet combo (tilapia or flounder) was done with lemon and butter, and the filet mignon done medium which was very tasty. For dessert there were cannolis. Beverage options ranged from coffee and tea to cappuccino and espresso.

Service as usual was not very good, not very attentive and not ready for prime time. It is interesting to note that if you get water on the table it shows up in random unlabeled wine bottles. Since some of our wine bottles had no labels, a few of them disappeared even though still half full because they wanted to refill them with water. Ouch, I only thought they watered down beer! Lol! Eventually we got it straightened out and had the bottles filled with the secret stash of homemade wine.

Bottom line is that every time we come the Chef is consistently scoring goals and the wait staff can’t figure out how to play the game. Note that they host the monthly meeting of the Sons of Italy here so if you are Italian, married to an Italian or look Italian you may qualify to join!

“Good pizza, need to go back to try sit down menu”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

I stopped here one late night as [maybe past] closing. They were already counting the money to close up shop. I asked if I could get a pizza to go. "Sure" came the response without hesitation. They gets points for that. They get points for the pizza too. I need reward both by a return trip for sit down menu. Look for that review in near future....

“the worst ever”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

Bad service, bad food, the worst dining experience in NJ, Never go here. Chef has no idea what he is doing, after we waited for 2 hours our entrees came out wrong complained to no results, finally got up to leave without eating, the Chef called police, this guy is a moron, the cops said they are here all the time for the same problem

Decided last minute to go to LaCasa Bianca for lunch & were most pleasantly surprised.
Not only was the food most special but the value could not be beat for such quality food.
We had the "Pastability" lunch for $7.95 which came with a fresh salad, homemade foccacia, &
the chicken carbonara pasta......Outstanding !!!!Not only cld you get a reg salad with a choice of dressings but you cld also have a great caesar salad. I had the homemade raspberry dressing ....Yum !! Continued on to enjoy a wonderful pasta dish...
Spoke with Chef Paul on way out & thanked him for a great meal...
Highly recommend this place !!!
