    Having frequented this restaurant for years in Trenton it was great to find they found a new home even closer to ours... the food on Sunday was excellent as usual... good service and the live music was a wonderful surprise... hope they keep the duo they had playing old favorites...

    Place is run poorly, food sub par nothing worth running out for, the dishes they use are to large to sit on the tables properly. Service is not really good. Over all Diamonds is a strip mall restauraunt that delivers slightly above pizzeria quality.

    I recall this Italian gem when they were located in their old location. I moved away for many years and when I returned they were no where to be found. Fortunately, I found them again and they continue to provide excellent food, great service and maintain the standards that I loved so much in the old place. Large menu selections and I have never been disappointed.

    Not sure what happened. The first time we went here-it is was exceptional. Appetizers- Chili was very good. A simple prosciutto mozzarella was ok. The pork and figs were good but overly sugary. I had a simple veal dish that was swimming in a cream sauce almost too overbearing to digest. I also had this over pasta. On the salty side. One person ordered a Tositano pasta dish- tasteless. Unfortunately- was not even good. Service was weak. Last time- excellent. So- the bottom line is this. Will we go back? Yes... with reservations but the quality went down (a lot) for us. I am not sure if I should have said anything but they "know" what they are doing. I suggest if you give Diamond's a try and you notice these things- I would say something.

    As always, this neighborhood gem did not disappoint. We introduced to new friends to this amazing dining experience and they were impressed! The veal and beef dishes were outstanding as were the appetizers and desserts. The corner table that Tommy seated us was perfect for quiet conversation so we appreciate that extra consideration he provided.

    My husband and I had dinner at Diamond's for his birthday. We had enjoyed going to the original Diamond's in "the Burg" in Trenton years ago. Food and service were excellent. Most delicious: their homemade buffalo mozzarella. Only one thing marred the experience: ordering a $54 steak. Kind of a shock when the bill came.

    We had visited Diamond's many times at their location on Kent St in the Burg so were looking forward to visiting their location now that they moved to Pennington. The inside was beautiful with lots of room for dining or a great bar area too. They had the little white lights in the main area which were always so pretty at their old location. Our waitress was outstanding, very polished and professional, we should have asked for her name so we could give her a shout-out! When we mentioned it was an anniversary, my dessert came out with a lit candle! And on the way out, the owner wished us a happy anniversary. All in all, a very special evening. We will be back!

    This was our first time dining at Diamond's Restaurant in Pennington. Upon entering, I was disappointed to see that there are TVs in every room. However, the host was very accommodating and put us in a room where they turned off the screen. We went on a Sunday night and the restaurant was quiet. We tried the shrimp parm appetizer and the gnocci and both very very good. The lobster entree and the chicken were also delicious. Portions are generous.

    Had been here once before for lunch with a girlfriend. Food was so delicious I could hardly wait for a chance to come back with my husband for dinner. We were not disappointed. Wonderfully delicious mushroom soup, a blend of 3 types of mushrooms blended into a creamy divine soup. Very filling. A perfect pork chop, tender veal marsala, and chicken franchise were our party's entrees and we were all very happy. We all chose the potato & vegetable and they were a good compliment to our dishes. Wonderful attentive staff.

    This reataurant is why you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. Although it is located in a strip mall, the outside deceives you about the hidden gem waiting inside. All of the food was fantastic. The portions are generous so arrive hungry. The prices on Open Table are inaccurate. The chicken parm cost $20 and the meatball appetizer was $10. The food is worth every dollar! We will definitely return and bring friends. There are so many more dishes I want to try.

    Tucked away in the Pennington Market shopping plaza it would be easy to miss this gem. But it has become one of my favorites and Diamonds has never disappointed. I tried the tilapia francese and it was amazing. It came with herb roasted potatoes and carrots or you could have had pasta instead. The carrots were to die for and the potatoes were good too. The service was attentive and just right. We did not get appetizers or dessert as we couldn't even finish the meal. I forgot to mention my partner also ordered something new - a penne pasta with sausage and pepperoncini. That was excellent also.

    Wanted to advise you that one member of our dinner party was sorely disappointed in his meal...totally. The other three diners enjoyed their food, the ambiance and the engaging waiter. We will visit again and hope that this one experience was an aberration. We were repeat customers at Diamonds when it was on Kent Street and trust the Zucchetti family to offer a perfect dining experience.

    Four of us went for dinner Saturday night - I had the pork chop w/broccoli rave stuffing yum! My husband's friends wife had gnocchi in a pink sauce which was also excellent. My husband had stuffed scallops which for me were a tad overcooked and tasted a little old. His friend had a shrimp dish in which the shrimp were left with the shells and heads on - the server didn't do a good job disclosing this for if he had, my husband's friend would not have ordered it. Would come here again, but I'd steer clear of seafood dishes.

    Everything about our experience was perfect. Setting to service to the food itself, you simply could not ask for better. The staff was outstanding. This was not my first time here, so I knew what I was in for. We were celebrating our second wedding anniversary and could not have asked for a more perfect dinning setting for such an occasion. We are a very easy going couple and do not ask for extra attention or need to be pampered but it is certainly a nice feeling when you are made to feel like the most important guests in a restaurant full of customers. The food, just no words. It was all outstanding.

    We used to go to Diamond's when they were on Kent St. in Chambersburg. In fact, we had both our kids' high school graduation dinners in the private dining room there. Followed them when they were on Rt. 29 (briefly) and were glad to see them open in Pennington. All the food was great; my daughter and I had the soft shell crabs which were done perfectly. My grandkids had gnocchi in marinara sauce (specially ordered with only one sauce) which they finished off. Two of us had the veal and lobster combo; also great. Definitely recommend.

    I dined here for lunch with a coworker and we were blown away! The restaurant is tucked away into a shopping center so we didn't know what to expect. The food was incredible! We had a hard time narrowing down what we wanted to try and ended up sharing several of the daily special appetizer platters - stuffed artichokes, caprese platter, and spinach bread. It was heaven and we can't wait to go back again soon! Also, service was great and reasonably quick for a workday lunch break. Great atmosphere, would also be great for a date night.

Service is what you would expect from these two brothers,they know how to treat people. Loved the veal and lobster. My son had the tomahawk steak and raved about it. Wife,daughter and son's girlfriend liked their choices as well. Our server Anthony was excellent. We will be back soon for sure.
