If Cuban food is your thing then this is the place. All of the typical dishes are here and they're cooked to perfection. The Ropa Vieja is top on the list followed by the churrasco. Great home made empanadas with several typical of fillings. It's a bring your own bottle and the sangria is definitely worth an order. Prepare for a nice night out but make a reservation especially on the weekends because this place fills up quickly.

Probably eat in Amarone once or twice a month. Very consistent service, excellent menu and accommodating hosts (Nick and Nick). Kind of quiet, but nothing wrong with that.

I either order for take out or dine in if its a weekday lunch because its less crowded. There are maybe 30 seats on the side to dine in so very small. My favorite dinner is the penne vodka with shrimp & scallops. You cant go wrong with anything, oh and like most local spots its BYOB.

Had dinner reservations here for an early Valentine's Day dinner celebration. Our waiter Franklin was impeccable with his service and making sure we had everything we needed during our dinner (we hope our tip reflected our happiness with him!). Best lobster bisque we ever had...creamy with large chunks of lobster in it. The Filet Mignon, Tenderloin, Lobster tails and South African Lobster Tail was cooked to perfection and seasoned perfectly. Not lost were the sides too...probably the best Au Gratin potatoes I've ever had. Dessert was fantastic too which we weren't able to finish due to being so stuffed from everything we had prior. Can't comment on the wine selection as we didn't order drinks but it looks like they had a nice wine collection.
While this meal was more on the pricey side of what we normally spend when we go out, I knew what the prices were going to be before hand and I thought everything we had was reasonably priced for what we got.

Gyros, Mousaka, Spanakopita, and all other things Greek, for the best casual Mediterranean dining experience in Northern NJ. BYOB!
Great food, really nice terrace to have dinner. Staff was so friendly. Moussaka was so tasty and the salads/entrée are good. We will come back for sure.

This is a destination restaurant - if you let it be. Order the exciting items, not old mainstays and you'll be impressed. The service is very polished and they pay a lot of attention to your overall experience. Sit in the bar room if you can. Reservations strongly recommended. Swordfish is amazing.

Welcoming atmosphere, nice service, huge selection of dishes and a great variety of beer choices if you're into that. I had the Kale and Roasted Brussels Sprouts Salad with Shrimp and I can't wait to go have it again! Yes, the salad was THAT good! The Buffalo chicken wings had great taste, though I prefer the skin more crispy.

We ate here for Father's Day and enjoyed our server and food. Our complaint was there was no air conditioning and it was hot. We were told it hasn't been working for a few summers. People, including wait staff, were fanning themselves to try cool off. I have asthma and the heat made it harder to breathe. No one in my family enjoyed themselves with sweat running down our faces.

Nice, clean restaurant with great food! I've tried a lot of chicken pad Thai before and this one was one of my favorites.
