  • Good place. Skilletini very greasy

    Relaxed, clean, comfortable and fair priced place to enjoy casual dinner. Hostess and server were very polite. The family platters offered are a good option. The Cesar salad was fresh but the chicken sausage Skilletini dish was big disappointment because of the difference between what was advertised on the menu and what was received and overall very, very greasy. I would return but will not order this dish.

    The food was wonderful. Our server was amazing. He was knowledgeable and attentive. Stuffed mushroom appetizer exceptional. Oh, and to begin with you are brought a small loaf of warm bread in a wrapper along with olive oil/garlic on a plate. The manager also made his way to every table, greeting the guests. Great night all around. Very impressive. We will be back.

    This establishment does not cook its food on sight. As I was told regarding the metallic tasting fettuccine "That's what we get from corporate; in Texas!" Nothing is made on site. This is an elaborate microwave that purports serving Italian cuisine. It was truly awful and I regret having subjected my wallet and my body to such awful food--and I use the word food very loosely.

    Great time with friends waitress was excellent kind patient and friendly we had a group of about 14 people and everything came out quick the waitress was alone and seemed like it was her and 3 other people that's how great she was. Offered to cut the cake for my wife bday saving me the hassle which many places won't do did not rush us even though we were the last people there and offered to get us shots delivered to the table even after we closed the tabs. Bartender was friendly and gave a great recommendation and all the rest of the staff that dealt with the party after dinner made us feel welcomed as if it was home thanks for a great night and great birthday dinner. Will return soon.

    We used to go to the one in Sunrise, but it closed that a few years ago. I was very excited to try it again. The bread was nice and warm. I had the Chicken Bowtie Festival...delicious! It's a bit on the saltier side but it went well with the bread. The bacon and sauce...to die for. Will definitely go again.

    It was really a nightmare experience. The price for the food was very high considering the quality... they offered a thanksgiving dinner and what we got was a "TV dinner" plate. I would have gotten something better at the frozen dinners section in any supermarket. They only had 3 tables to serve and it took forever to get our dinner. It seemed that they sent someone to purchase our dinner and desert at the neighborhood supermarket and then they defrost them to serve us. I will NEVER recommend such restaurant and will never go back. It was my first and last experience at that place.

    Not fine dining - but it is a neighborhood restaurant so not much was expected. [Although I have to say, in New Jersey you can walk into a neighborhood bar and get better Italian food than most of what you will get in Manhattan at 5Xs the price.] The servers are not well trained. Which is not their fault but that of management - Hostess leaning on the reception desk, chatting with a colleague, not paying attention to customers. Servers pleasant but talking with each other, backs to the dining room. Management has to decide whether they want this property to be a sports bar with blaring 'music' [term used advisedly] or a restaurant where patrons can enjoy a meal in relative tranquility.

    I have been there before a liked it as a Resturant chain italien food place can be BUT this time the food was full of oil. Two dishes were sent back with a half of inch of oil on the bottom of the bottom. Our potato soup had the thickness of oatmeal. Even the chef came out and said that he was sorry that yes the food was improbably made. I would say yes to visiting this Resturant but check the amount of oil in your dish before you eat it.

    The worst Italian food I have ever eaten in a restaurant . The meat balls were hard dry and tasted like something you would get from the frozen food section at your grocery store. High prices and bad food make for a very bad combination. The service was very good and that is all that was good . So much for the Thanks Giving meal.
