    Prices have dramatically increased without the quality of food rising. The food was good, just over priced. They claim to be kid-friendly; however, the clientele the restaurant appeals to would probably prefer a child free dining experience. Can't blaim them, paying high prices one would expect a fine atmosphere.

    My husband and I were shown this place by friends last year and I've never been disappointed! We've eaten here probably a dozen or so times in the last year and have brought many friends with us at different times. The food is always fantastic and the desserts are simply outstanding. It has a lovely appearance inside with the tables being spaced nicely far apart so you don't feel like you're eating with the neighboring table. The bar area is also quite nice. I can't recommend it enough!

    The food was great. However, there were about 5 people working at the hostess station and not one of them saw a problem with seating us in the middle of a party that was going on in a certain section of the restaurant. We eventually moved to another part of the restaurant that was largely empty…why not put us there in the first place. A waiter was putting our appetizer on the table as our waitress was taking our order, which was just rude. Finally, when we get our soups and salads our food arrived not even a minute later. We were so rushed that the dinner took an hour at the very most. Wish we would have been able to enjoy the food at a mild pace rather than having to stuff our faces just to move to the next course.

    The food was excellent, the owner walked around the restaurant and made sure everyone was accommodated. The only area I would tweak is the wine menu. There were few chardonnay choices that were reasonably priced. The cheapest one that I would have chosen was $45.00 and knowing something about wine it was overpriced. I would strongly recommend adding some bottles in the $25.00 range, I bet they would generate more revenue as the more expensive priced ones would not.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
