Great experience.


Severs did the best they could buy food service was slow. Food was not of the quality I have had here in the past.


Elevated food …pizza joint service . Have been dining here for a very long time. ( Christmas Eve, special occasion and every day). It seems that management standards have dropped . Clearly taking diners for granted , while providing less than adequate service . This restaurant was a “gem” of Church street , but we’ll be looking for a replacement Our waiter seemed more interested in chatting with the hostess , than checking on us. He never once came back to our table , once our order was taken. I had to ask the hostess for our entrees following appetizers, then again for a cup of coffee ( we weren’t offered a desert me yet) , and again for the check. Then I had to search for someone to take payment. I would suggest that the owners have a manager on site always. It was clear that there was no one in charge , and that the staff were left to run the show. Very disappointing.


Music a bit too loud but Fun

Great atmosphere food and service!


Excellent dinner on a beautiful night in downtown Montclair!! We ate outdoors. Service is knowledgeable and friendly. We had a clam special appetizer which was delicious! My veal parmigiana was delicious and my wife loved her lamb chops.

best experience love this place. great food and atomsphere


Overall an interesting experience. Wouldn’t go here for dinner unless it’s a celebration. Brunch may be different.


Saturday night, packed, I was distracted by my date and her ummm, ample presentation than everything else that was on the table. Everything looked delicious. The food was good. Not very spicy which for some reason I was anticipating. I didn’t walk out thinking wow that was awesome I can’t wait to next time try….. but, good food well prepared , nicely presented, good service, good price

awesome food awesome service!!


First time. Great vibe. The glass walls fully open to the street vibe/scene outside. Fred, our server was great. Always around without being intrusive. Very polite as well as appropriately friendly. We came in for later evening apps. Oysters cooked with pancetta, delicious and smokey. GrandMa’s meatballs, light, moist, flavorful and so-Sunday-dinner memory inducing. Baratta over diced watermelon, perfectly done and an interesting combination that worked. FYI : BYOB. I’m glad I phoned ahead to ask. Will definitely return, with friends for a full dinner. Their “Specials” sounded amazing and after sampling their appetizers, I believe they will be. Enjoy. 01

The food was…fine? It wasn’t bad, per se, but certainly wasn’t good. Mostly bland and uninteresting. It’s LOUD. Which is fine, if you’re going for a rowdy night with friends. We were sitting OUTSIDE and I couldn’t hear my wife across the table. All waitstaff had masks - maybe 10% were actually wearing them. Most had them pulled down under chin, at which point: what’s the point? I can see this being a fun place to go for a large birthday party - but that said, it’s odd that that is the vibe and they don’t serve booze!
