Diner Reviews
  • "I've been a member of Open Table for many years. I cashed in some of my rewards and then went on a search for a new restaurant. I found Italian Affair and was glad I did. The waiter was great to do some kidding with, which I always enjoy doing. It makes their night fun and mine too. We started with the Lollipop lamb chops which was excellent. And for my entree' I had the pasta meal with shrimp, and scallops. It was so good! We sat in a booth out around the bar area, which was fine with us. The dinning room was all open with table and chairs and I believe would be pretty noises if there were a lot of people dinning in that room. We will definitely go back there. Definitely!"

  • "We were sent an open table gift card for christmas and were disapointed int he very limited selection of where we could use this. We had never been to the italian affair previously so sent the gift card there and had all the info. on our phones that we were told was needed. As it turns out, this restaraunt required us to print the confirmation, so they didn't accept the gift card. very disapointed in how the whole process works and although, I would not be returning to this restaraunt, I now will be since we will not waste the $50"

  • "Our visit was wonderful. The food was excellent, the ambiance was very Italian - you felt like you were in a small cafe in Italy. The servers and receptionist were friendly, welcoming, and very courteous. They made us feel special. The desserts were to die for - I mean really great. The Irish Cream coffee cordial was amazing. We had a wonderful time and look forward to going back."

  • "Had two appetizers both were pretty much tasteless but overall not horrible. It was the main course that was truly horrible a pork dish that was one of the worst I've ever had. On the up side our server was lovely. If I had to go back I'd stick with pasta."

  • "This was our first visit and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The large menu offered traditional choices and interesting variations to suit all tastes. Value was good based on prices and especially since a soup or salad is included with entrees. The food had a "home made" flavor. Our server, Natale, was very friendly and skilled. We stayed a long time to finish conversations and never felt rushed."

  • "Ordered the special for the evening, sirloin tips. I usually think of tips of at least 1 inch pieces, these were more like scraps cut off of the end with gristle. On two occassions I was asked how we enjoyed our meal and my comment was it was "OK". The server responded he was sorry and left it at that. The host at the desk was quite satisfied with the response. Not sure we will return. On a positive note, the bottle of wine on special was good."

  • "I've lived in Glassboro for a while, and finally tried Italian Affair for Valentine's Day with my wife. They went the extra mile to make it special. The service was excellent, the food was amazing (I had the Chilean sea bass, which melted in my mouth), and the ambiance was romantic. Overall, we really enjoyed our time, and will definitely be back."

  • "While on business in Gloucester NJ we decided to go to this restaurant. The menu was very diverse and provided my colleague and I the chance to try a variety of selections. I tried the Salmon and Argula Salad. It was excellent and the potion size more than adequate. I also had a side of Asparagus and while I wished it would have been served grilled the olive oil and garlic was a nice change. My guest enjoyed the Stuffed Eggplant which she found to be very tasty."

  • "First time dining here and all I can say is that I wish I had tried them sooner. Flatbread on specials menu for appetizer was excellent. My wife had a scallop, shrimp and crabmeat pasta dish that was done perfectly and loaded with crab and had large scallops. But my veal dish (veal paisano) was extraordinary. It may have been the most tender, best piece of veal I've had anywhere, Will definitely return."

  • "My wife and I have been coming to Italian Affair off and on for years. At least ever since opened in Glassboro. Was a very regular and FAVORITE place of ours to go. Then we fell on some hard times. So going as often wasn't in the budjet. But still managed to go for special occasions at the very least. Lovely, pleasant servers. Fresh tasting mouth watering foods. Outstanding service. Very accommodating should you want to deviate from menu just a little."

  • "Nice local Italian restaurant, with consistently good food. The little (sourdough?) rolls which are served piping hot from the oven are delish! My husband had the lobster ravioli which was very good, and I had the veal special which was also very good. Prices are very reasonable. My only complaint was that it was very cold in the dining room, and we asked for the heat to be raised, several times. I (and diners at other tables) had their coats on - not a comfortable way to dine."

  • "Had a great time on Saturday for a birthday dinner for my manfriend, The food is great and the service was great, our waitress Morgan was very pleasant. The only thing that could be improved is your wine list for Pinot Grigio. The cheaper wines was good but there was more of a selection in the past. Overall, the dining experience was great and remains my favorite place to dine. Thank You Anne M KIng"

  • "I'd been here for a catered affair and it was wonderful but wanted to try the whole menu. What a fantastic choice that was! We had the Chicken Boscaiola and Veal Parm with meat ravioli. The flavors were wonderful and the portions clearly large enough to bring home for a second meal. I wanted to try a specific liqueur that I'd never had. Our waitress brought that and recommended another one that she was specifically familiar with as she thought I might like it more. (Vecchio Amaro del Capo...and I liked it better too!) A very lovely place and I clearly recommend it!"

  • "Based on great Open Table reviews, we gave it a try on New Years Eve. Menu was extensive. Portions plentiful. But the food was a bit off. I had the Fruit due Peace. The lobster was unevenly cooked. The mussels were clunky. The light .marinara had the consistency of tomato soup. She had the Chicken Saltimbkca, which had a mysterious and over powering seasoning. The waiter was overly attentive. There are better options in the area in the same price range."

  • "Love love love this restaurant, Excellent Service. Our waiter Jake is the best. Very attentive and always happy. Great service. Portions are big. The pasta is homemade on premises. We always bring home leftovers. Our favorite is the Pollo Capri, the Pumpkin Raviolis and the French Cut Stuff Pork Chop. You can't go wrong with any item on the menu. Been coming for about ten years. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves pasta. I have been to many Italian restaurants in the Big Cities and this by far is the best!!!!"

My husband had the stuffed pork chop-stuffed with prosciutto and provolone, served with paperadelle pasta with a cream mushroom sauce; absolutely delicious. I had shrimp with lump crabmeat over paperadelle pasta; again delicious. Run, don't walk for a delicious meal."
