  • "Very friendly, welcoming environment. This is a family-run gem where you are always greeted by one of the owners. The food is always very good and the atmosphere is relaxed and casual. The brick-fired pizza and the eggplant rollatini are two of our favorites. We always have fun when we're there."

  • "First I must say we had a 7 p.m. reservation. When we arrived the restaurant was full, yet we were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation time. We were there to enjoy the Jazz Band. We had a wonderful time not to mention a fabulous dinner. The seafood ravioli was extraordinary! You must also try ANYTHING on the dessert tray. The key lime pie melted in your mouth. The carrot cake so the best I've ever had. All in all it was a wonderful wonderful time. Danielle was our server and even though she was busy, very busy, never did we feel rushed or neglected. She was there on time all the time."

  • "Not our first visit to this restaurant. Each time the service and food are well above par. Friendly atmosphere and good food. We will be back"
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "We ordered the wahoo fish, it was the special. It was under cooked and lacked any seasoning. We notice everyone else was ordering pasta dishes. They need to stick to what they know, great past dishes and sauces. This is the second time I order the fish special and each time it was not very good."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We love going to this restaurant. It is definitely our favorite one and wish it was closer to home, but well worth the hour drive to get to it. The food is always consistently good, no matter what you order. The staff is friendly and non-intrusive but attentive. The drinks are generous and delish!"

  • "We made a reservation ,during the Atlantic City Restaurant Week. Upon arrival, we were NOT seated in the general seating area and seated opposite bar in what you would call an overflow area of this restaurant. Waitress greeted us and gave us regular menus. I inquired about the AC restaurant and she said that Saturday night was not a part of the promotion! I asked for a the manager, who tried to explain the Saturday night was an exception! I said the website didn't have that stated after a back and forth discussion-he gave us the Restaurant Week menu but made a point of bringing us his website that stated in small print that Saturday night was exempt! As for the meal, it was excellent and so was our service."

  • "Unfortunately we were seated in a smaller room and it wasn't quite as nice as the others. The food continues to be great..."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Made reservation for 6:30. Arrived promptly, gave our name and then had to stand in the waiting area for some time. When we arrived we were told we would be seated in a few minutes If I had not asked what happened to a few minutes we would probably still be standing there. Ordered an appetizer, never got it. Waitress said "sorry, I forgot to punch it in". Other than that service was good as well as the meal."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Three out of for dinners were very good. Tuna was awful, did not eat and waitress did not ask why. Drink refills were charged???? When asked a question we were snapped at. We had the three meal special for restaurant week and deserts were included, we thought until the bill came. The waitress did not inform us of the deserts that went with the meal. She just brought out a desert tray, so we assumed that these deserts were included with the meal. Therefore, making the final bill much more expensive. Our dining experience left us very unhappy. Unfortunately, we will not be back."

  • "Our server was very nice. we asked for a sprite with lemon she just gave us a 7up without warning, and also, to my dismay, without lemon. Then she explained they probably don't have sprite. our mussles were good, being ridiculously tiny. Tuna steak and flounder was great. *Heaven* and *Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie* were our desserts and they were completely and utterly awe-inspiring. added ice cream The sprite thing wasn't an issue, I just said that because it happened. The only real CON about our experience was our wait. We made a rsvn. arrived 3 minutes prior to the rsvn time. A person in front of us has a later time, got seated before us, we waited 15 minutes while they struggled to find a table, and they acted as if we weren't there."

  • "The manager had a bad attitude and the waiter was even worse.My wife is Asian and he seemed to have a problem with that.He never told us the specials,served other people ahead of us,just very unprofessional .Will never return!!"

  • "it is a good sign when you have to wait for service for a 6pm reservation. the place was busy. it must be good. it is a bad sign when it's so busy that the food (in this case, tuna) was dry and tasteless. we have had good meals at touch of italy. this wasn't one of them."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "I understand that it was a busy holiday, I wanted to treat my wife to something nice. It took 45 minutes to get asked for drinks, another 15 to get them. Dinner was blah, slow service... I really never do not flat out dislike a place but this was horrible. 5:30 reservation and left at 8:45 that is how slow it was. We live 3 minutes away and will never go back!"

  • "This was our first time at this Restaurant. The service was great. Loved the setting of the restaurant. It was cozy, Romantic but yet had a family feel to it. The food was incredible, however I thought it was alittle bit pricey. Don't mind paying a bit more for good food but I thought the portion size didn't quite meet up to the amount paid."

  • "I won't write the usual about this trip to my favorite Resturant because it was for Valentines Day. You have to remember when dining out for a day like this to pack extra patience. Service was amazing considering the amount of people that were there. Loved my company (husband), loved my wine (Riesling) especially loved my food! Happy ending:)"

  • "We went to A Touch of Italy for Valentine's Day. Our reservation was for 6:30. We got to the restaurant about 15 minutes early. When we checked in, they immediately sat us. Food was delicious, drinks were great, ambiance was perfect. Service was slightly slow, however it was one of the busiest holidays of the year. Overall, it was a wonderful night and we would recommend dining here!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We were seated quickly on a holiday because of our reservation, which was great. We had a quiet table in the back of the room. I did ask for the room with the fireplace when I made my reservation and I was not accommodated nor was it acknowledged, but I also chalk that up to it being one of the busiest nights of the year. Our server was kind, but was slow. The food was excellent so that makes up for it! We enjoyed mozzarella sticks, a roasted red pepper app, salads, chicken parm, and chicken sorrentino. Everything was great. We also both enjoyed a drink from the bar. When we were done eating it took about 30 minutes for the server to bring the check so we arrived at our next activity late, but we really did enjoy ourselves and the food."

  • "My wife and I went to dinner the day before Valentine's Day and had a excellent experience. Good food, wine and the music from the bar was just right."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "I made this reservation for where I was bringing an executive from a Corporation, I was disappointed, with many empty tables in the main dining room, the host tried to seat us in a empty room on the side, within 2 feet of the kitchen door. We asked for a different table, the host only had one -- across the bar-the windows and tile floor were freezing. (Our note on the reservation asked if possible we'd prefer to sit close to the fire place - I understand if they had previous requests) Why someone would go out of their way to ruin a $300+ dinner for 5 people. The waitress was perfect, she was a gem, and we wanted for nothing she didn't offer first. I won't take another business dinner to this restaurant and risk embarrassment again."

  • "Excellent meal as always - our martinis were a sufficient size, the bread was warm (yay!), clams (8) on the half shell icy cold, nice slice of the tuna on special and cooked medium rare as requested, calamari always a favorite with the capellini pasta on the side with garlic and oil as requested, nice size wine pour, tartufo always a favorite"

  • "We were a trio of hungry buds. One friend worked nearby & used to frequent this place, wasn't sure it was still good. It certainly was that & more. We all had the prix fixe dinner for $23.50 & they were each terrific. Had the bruschetta pizzas to start, the chicken marsala, veal parm & cannoli & chocolate mousse for dessert. All very good to excellent. Portions were very generous, service very attentive, prices moderate & great live music. This was a freezing Thurs night so it wasn't that crowded but I'd be sure to make res on the weekends. Definite thumbs-up !!"
