La Piazza Ristorante Brick Oven Pizza

Reviewed By travelfan77 - New Jersey

This place is fantastic! It is always crowded on the weekends and many nights during the week. I love their plain and brooklyn style pizzas. My family and I have been coming here for for over 15 years and never had an issue. We have ordered takeout just as much as we have dined-in. Unfortunately we moved over an hour away so coming back is rare. Everything they serve is fresh and delicious.

The Cream Ridge Winery

Reviewed By Rachel B

This was the last stop on a weekend road trip, fun fun fun! The owners were funny, friendly and had great detail about their wines. All are from locally grown fruit, some are proprietary. I usually prefer drier wines and most here were sweeter. I found some new favorites in the Blue Mooney, 99 Rows and Jersey Berry.

We enjoyed our dinner at this lovely Italian restaurant. The staff was excellent, even with our baby granddaughter. They were attentive and friendly, fulfilled special food requests and made us feel welcome.

I enjoyed my dinner special, of large pasta shells stuffed with Ricotta, in a Shrimp and Pesto Sauce - with a touch of Arugula. Delicious.It was hard to select only because they had so many lovely choices on the menu, but I'm glad that I selected this special.

It is a BYOB restaurant, but they also offer bottled wine from a local winery.

I recommend this restaurant and I will return for other meals.

Service was quick with plenty of staff to serve. The late hours were a welcome find after finding other closed spots. Floor could use a good mopping.

Toscano's Ristorante

Reviewed By jphillips12 - New Jersey

This was my first visit to this lovely restaurant. My family celebrated my mother's birthday here and we were not disappointed. The service was friendly and professional. The dining room was clean and decorated with beautiful holiday décor. The food was unbelievable. The steak melted in my mouth. The veal chop was done to perfection and the seafood could not have been fresher. Highly recommend this restaurant and will be returning again!

Dolce and Clemente's

Reviewed By RMZR1 - Louisiana

I grew up in Hamilton Township but have lived in Louisiana for 23 years. I miss the great Italian meats, cheeses, and other deli delights. We stopped to have a sandwich and pick up some finger food for a concert tonight. Sandwiches are big and the choices abundant. My wife had a great eggplant parm sandwich. Delicious bread and sauce. My Old Timer Turkey and cheese sandwich was huge and good. We purchased a tasty selection of meats, cheeses, and bread for the concert. The man working the deli was extremely helpful in slicing and packaging it up for us.

You can dine outside where there are a few tables or take it all home.

Halo Pub

Halo Pub is a old time ice cream house. The inside is dark but charming in it's antique "cow" décor. The ice cream is served up just the way you ask. There are plenty of delicious flavors to choose from. Seating is limited.

The Moth Coffeehouse

Reviewed By Hgtravl - Marlton, New Jersey

I was in the area, and saw this place had vegan choices as well as regular menu choices.

Its located in a historic mill, beautiful building. The inside is so aesthetically pleasing to the eyes. Beautiful rustic decor, very county feel. Lots of decor you would find on Etsy or a very artistic place.

The food was alright- nothing to great. I was sort of let down to be honest- had really high hopes for this place...

I ordered the vegan mac and cheese- $8.00, pretty pricey, but I figured for $8.00 its probably a large sized enough for a meal. Wrong. It came out in a tiny cup that you would be served as a side dish for a entree at a restaurant. I also was confused as it came with a salad- should be labeled on the menu as a SALAD with a side of mac and cheese. I put that issue aside hoping maybe it would be amazing and make up for its size, it was hardly warm, barley warm is putting it. Felt like they pre make it in the morning and just toss it in the microwave when served. For the price of $8.00, make it a larger size or try to make it better.... I was still hungry after the small dish, so I had a vegan cupcake. The vegan cupcake was great tho- maybe I could them on a bad day, I will give them another chance some time... There aren't many vegan friendly places in this area, so I will give it another whirl one day.

Woody's Towne Cafe

Reviewed By ChesmoRR - Howell, New Jersey

Ran into Woody's this week for a quick, late breakfast and was so pleasantly surprised. I had an egg white western omelette and it was cooked perfectly. Portion was large with a hearty side of potatoes and toast. I couldn't finish the entire thing although I really wanted to because it was just that delicious. The server was very attentive but didn't visit the table too much. She always checked my coffee cup when she walked. Will definitely stop in again when I'm in the area.

De Lorenzo's Tomato Pies

Reviewed By Momleit - New Jersey

Who would have thought that a restaurant that served such a simple menu of pizza (no grated cheese allowed, btw) salad, antipasto and olives would be so good?! Well, it was delicious and worth the 30 minute wait! We had a fig, prosciutto spring salad special that was spectacular! And a large tomato pie with homemade meatballs which was also delicious! An added feature is it's a BYOB! Highly recommend! P.s. No dessert on the menu
