This place is awesome. It's busy and fun! The food was amazing. I had the "godfatha" sandwich and it was so good! I will definitely come here again.

Fiorino

In the kitchen of Fiorino Ristorante only the best will do. We have a zero-tolerance policy for anything that sacrifices quality. As expert chefs, we know that the best dishes start with the best ingredients. On our menu, you will find the finest Italian inspired dishes that the area has to offer, and we have spent years perfecting each and every item on our menu so that every dish is memorable. From our housemade raviolis to our signature cocktails, everything is crafted with an absolute attention to detail. The result is a journey of sorts, where each bite will transport you to the heart of Italy, and you will constantly have to remind yourself that you are not on a farm or a vineyard in Tuscany after each subsequent, delicious bite. We invite you to come experience Fiorino for yourself, let us take you across the globe, if only for dinner.

We ate here on a Friday night right before Christmas. The place was packed. The tables are very close together so we felt a little like sardines in a can. And the noise level made it difficult to talk. We have been in other fully packed restaurants, but with better acoustics (lacking here) where you can hear yourself talk.

The food is very good, though also pricey (e.g., the shrimp and angel hair pasta dish cost about 20% more than the same dish at other restaurants). Service was very good. Despite a fully packed restaurant, dinner did not take too long to come out, and water glasses were refilled without asking.

If you don't mind a high noise level, this restaurant is very good. But I know restaurants that are equally good and much quieter, so we probably will not return here unless maybe on a week day.

Arturos Osteria & Pizzeria

Reviewed By PhilipNewJersey - New Jersey

All the food here is heavenly. We try to go in "off peak" hours, to avoid long waits for a table. (BYOB). Everything is wonderful -- pastas, pizzas, salads and sandwiches. Among our favorites are the wild mushroom ravioli with garlic, rosemary sauce, all the pizzas (fresh ingredients and a "lightness" which is uncharacteristic of NJ pizzas which are overloaded with cheese), all the salads (our favorites are the beet salad and the kale Caesar), and the mortadella and mozzarella sandwich. A small restaurant in the popular downtown area of Maplewood, so plan your arrival strategically.

The Able Baker

The Able Baker specializes in cakes, cookies, pies, and breakfast sweets. Custom cakes and custom cookies are made based on a customer's requests and needs. We brew La Colombe coffee and pull La Colombe espresso drinks from a beautiful La Marzocco GB/5. And we steep Steven Smith Teamaker's excellent teas and tisanes.

Great scones, muffins, cookies, and breakfast breads - and more! Not too long after it opened, the Able Baker quickly became an important part of the community when it opened up its doors - and outlets - to residents to charge their devices after Super Storm Sandy. Crowds have returned ever since for coffee and a variety of baked goodies and the business has become a gathering place. Highly recommended for both the quality of their food and their support of the community.

Natale's Bakery

Reviewed By 4onpark - Jersey

This is one of the best bakeries in Central New Jersey. The go to place for many residents for every day needs, special events and the holidays. Well prepared cakes, pies and cookies. Can get very crowded on the holiday weeks and best to order ahead as popular items sell out quickly. A couple soft points, service can be inconsistent as they employee lots of people and some are more helpful than others, parking is limited so can be difficult to park close. Finally after spending an hour speaking in person with them they didn't deliver the special order cake as requested.

Bagels Supreme

Reviewed By Ready2travel365 - Springfield, New Jersey

Bagels Supreme is the gem of our town. They have the best bagels in New Jersey and probably in the whole tri state area.
We are addicted to their bagels. Our teen picky eaters who barely eat anything, can’t get enough of their bagels and mini bagels.our son loves their ‘grilled cheese’ bagel and I don’t mind getting them at 6 am in the morning when they first open the shop.
I like their egg salad.
On several occasion, we did catering from this place and also purchased bagels fur our school events.
The best part, they are also kosher which a huge plus!

The service is always good , very nice people.
When our kids were younger, they always gave us extra mini bagels fir them!
I wish they were open 24/7 and they had a bigger place to sit in and enjoy even more!

Lorena's Restaurant

Local Ingredients Deeply Rooted in French Technique

Reviewed By PALABL - Cedar Knolls, New Jersey

After years of reading reviews and hearing about this restaurant, we finally made reservations so we could judge for ourselves. Well, all we can say is exceptional! Every bite, every server met every expectation. The only tiny criticism would be the size of our table for two. We would have been a little more comfortable with a few extra inches. We will certainly be back to enjoy each seasonal menu.

Basilico

Basilico was established by co-owners Mario DeMarco and Angelo Delbecchi, formerly of Sergio's; also in Millburn. Both are graduates of the Hotel Management School in Alassio, Italy. Both from Italy, they have brought their original and authentic Italian cuisine to create Basilico.

We had dinner at this well regarded Italian restaurant and we are glad we did. The decor is attractive and the service was excellent. First we were brought a basket of warm, fresh breads and not just the usual butter, but roasted garlic puree and a blend of sun-dried tomatoes and olive oil. It was delicious. For appetizers my wife and I shared the grilled calamari with greens, it too was superb. For my main course I had the Branzino with herbs and lemon, with broccoli rabe and garlic. The fish was cooked perfectly and the herb infused olive oil combined to create a wonderful meal. Other diners had the roast pork shank (delicious), the Pappardelle Bolognese (with fresh pasta) and a grilled fish with cherry tomatoes, and olives (also superb). This was an excellent meal.

Roots Steakhouse

Reviewed By mombrellino - Far Hills, New Jersey

Went for a business meeting with 15 of my partners and was not disappointed. They were able to accommodate us in their private room and the service was spectacular. My T-bone was cooked perfectly and the apps were great. Not a big fan of the puff bread but that just my personal opinion. They should offer regular bread too. Overall a very good experience.
