We have been to this restaurant on numerous occasions, most recently last night (01/13/18) and we have always had a terrific experience. Excellent service, food quality and quantity.

Came here for business lunch and was pleasantly surprised. It was like eating at Ben's or Katz's deli in in NYC. We were pleasantly greeted and shown to a table. Inside needs some decorating! Complimentary pickles were provided. Mushroom Barley soup was amazing! Corned beef was lean and potato salad was excellent. Will be back!

While in the area for my daughters soccer tournament we decided to have a good dinner since we were all tired of eating out. I had pulled up restaurants in the area on trip advisor and this one stood out so we figured we would give it a try and I'm so glad we did.
The restaurant was cute and very clean. Servers working were all very friendly and attentive. Our waitress Elienna was fantastic always checking in to ensure we had everything we needed.
We started with the calamari which was great and they also provided us fresh warm bread and two types of fresh dips made with fresh tomatoes, onions and olives.
I had the ravioli, my daughter had the fettuccini and my husband had a chicken dish with pasta on the side. Everything was amazing, fresh and tasted. Portions were huge and we savoured each bite.
We declined dessert simply because we were so stuffed but since it was our first visit and we were from out of town they gave us all a complementary dessert to end our meal.
I would highly recommend this restaurant for fresh authentic Italian food.

We also feature local craft bottled beers, brunch style cocktails, and an array of coffees prepared by our trained baristas. Allow us to share with you our craft.
We were taken to Urban Griddle by friends. . . .Oh.My.Goodness. What a great place to eat.
I had the Jerzy Eggrolls and while it looked like a small portion compared to the plates of everyone else they were so filling that I was more than satisfied. It was great to eat something that was fried without it dripping with grease. . . or having that "fried in grease" taste in my mouth. The sauce/relish that they were served with should be bottled. . . .it was so tasty.
My husband had the gyro and could not stop raving about it.
We split a slice of the French toast. . . . while I am sure that our sugar counts went through the roof that 1/4 of a slice of French toast was the best bite I have ever had.
This place is so popular that there must always be a wait. . . . but the food is so good, and the servers are so friendly and fun that it is worth it.
Can't wait to go back again!

Situated on the upper level of The Mills at Jersey Gardens mall. Staff are too rushed off their feet to pay attention to things like not delivering a starter and manicure at the same time. Food dumped carelessly onto plates with no consideration of appearance. My bowl of chilli cheese & onion came at the same time as my Philly cheese steak. The amounts are reasonable & the prices low but really could do with some more seasoning. I expect my chilli to have something of a kick. This disappointed.

Thought we'd get decent breakfast here, better than Marriott & Country Inns which are truly awful. No way. Poached eggs came incredibly runny; the 2nd attempt almost as bad. Toast is so small and skimpy. A totally bad experience.

What a treat! Every slice of pizza is nostalgic for us.....thinking about the times we visited Denino's over the years. Their pizza hasn't changed one bit and it's as delicious as ever. It's still a fun place, with delicious pizza (lots of varieties).

Manolo's restaurant has an excellent atmosphere and amazing service. We found this location off of TripAdvisor, and didn't know what to expect when we came in. It turned out they have a wide variety of delicious Continental cuisine. The restaurant would be perfect for business meetings a quiet lunch, or even a romantic dinner. We had the salmon and it was delicious.

Since 1918 we've been baking bread and making Pizza in our Brick Oven. Our Famous Pizza is Voted Best Pizza by the Media every year. (for years and years) We've been Voted best Sicilian Pie in America, Best Sicilian Pepperoni Pie in AMerica. Every year we rank either #1 or #2 in NJ by all the top Cuisine Media Companies. I've learned there are two types of people, those that never tried our Pizza and those that have been here countless times. Thanks for patronizing our establishment. Regards, Al "the baker" Santillo
Have been getting Al's Pizza since I was a little boy in the neighborhood! LOVE the Sicilian Pizza. And the Sausage is INCREDIBLE!

I have never written a negative review and I am not generally a picky person. I also rely on these reviews when I go somewhere new. That this restaurant gets 4.5 stars is frankly alarming. We were duped for 120$!!!!
Dirty and old.
Cold, tasteless bread served first with only oil and red vinegar on the side. Then the antipasto..... sadly awful. The 3 'italian' entrees had dark red, burnt sauce. Two of the 6 people wanted chicken cacciatore and they were out of it. The pizza came almost 15 minutes later than the other entrees. Nondescript but edible.
The service was not good either. Not awful but not good.
We brought relatives visiting from Europe and wanted the authentic experience. Won't make that mistake again.
No desserts offered, wine comes in a juice glass. No drinks for kids other than cranberry juice. Overpriced as well given the poor quality.
