Undici never disappoints.
Undici never disappoints. Whenever my family looks for a place to get together and celebrate, Undici is the place we go. The food is always incredible, as well as the service. I recommend this restaurant to more people than I can count!

Italian at its' best!
As always, Undici is superb for dining at any time of the day/night. I was sorry to see one of my favorite dishes currently off the menu; however, the chef agreed to prepare it, since the ingredients were available at that time! Of course, it was fantastic. We are so fortunate to have such a 'gem' in our community.

An Exceptional Restaurant
We have been to this restaurant approximately four times in the last year and a half (only because it's not local for us.) After the first time, our server remembered us and greeted us warmly. After our subsequent visits, we were made to feel like honored guests who dine there regularly. It's a feeling I really can't describe. I only wish it were closer so that we could go more frequently. The food is outstanding, atmosphere is beautiful, and service is exceptional.

Live it, love it, love it!
This s a lovely restaurant. Great ambiance, great food (bolognese is to die for) and good wine list.

Thanks to Restaurant Week
Thanks to Restaurant Week for introducing me to this charming spot. Food and wine were exceptional. I had the mussels and linguini bolognese....superb. We felt a little rushed at first but our waiter was just being attentive. Overall the service was very good. Wine list was a little overwhelming but the sommelier was very helpful in choosing a lovely bottle in our price range. Will definitely go back.

We had the pleasure of treating a client to dinner at Undici. Food, atmosphere and location was excellent.
Next time I'm in NJ I look forward to going back!

Very good food
I had a group of 7 and this was the only place available for lunch. We had a very good meal and everyone enjoyed it. I would say the only downside was that the interior is dark and since we were there on a sunny, spring day it was a little gloomy however we soon forgot about it when we had the great meal. There was something for everyone, including desert, and we had different food allergies in the group. I would go again.

Nice on a quiet Tuesday
Undici's dining room was not at all busy when we visited on a rainy Tuesday evening. It was lovely to be there when its not loud! Interesting wine by the glass, very good Caesar salad, very good basic pastas, etc.
5/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good, as usual.
Been to this restaurant quite a few times, never had a bad meal or bad service.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very nice restaurant, but way overpriced. Wine list is excellent with a very good sommelier to help you choose a good wine which also are pricey.

Food and Service
The food and service were exceptional. Consider that me and my dine mate are far from regulars, we were treated like old friends by our servers at the bar. Some reviews have faulted the simplicity of the presentation and preparation, to which I can only respond that the quality of the meat and produce needs little augmentation.
I will definitely return
The acoustics of the main dining room aren't that great-if you want a quiet intimate experience, ask for upstairs.

Always Superb !
Whether it's as week night or a weekend, Undici IS the place for eating a quiet meal or entertaining. The food and service are top notch and it has become my "go to" restaurant in the area. BRAVO

Very pretty inside, service was very good. Small menu, but very good food especially the pizza.

I have eaten there several times, and have never been disappointed. Service is friendly and the menu has great selections.
7/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was phenomenal and the service was great. However, the dining room that we ate in was incredibly loud making it difficult to have a conversation or even to understand our server. We will definitely make a regular place on our dining out rotation, but will look to avoid that section of the restaurant.
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very very good food. We all
Very very good food. We all enjoyed our meals. Just be aware the restaurant is a little pricey. 4 people: 2 bottles of wine, 1 liquer, 3 steak dinners (their specialty), 1 pasta dinner - $240 a couple.
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
The only thing better than the food is the service. Noise level was a little higher then I would like.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice Night Out
We met another couple there and had a great night out, service was great, wine selection amazing, many specials even on a week night.
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent meal, good service but...
.....way too loud. We came for our anniversary and were hoping for a quiet romantic place which this is definitely NOT. But I will say the food was very good.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always Very Good
Dimly lit restaurant with a very bustling bar. The Charcutterie Table is a must. Try the Misto to get a variety of the meats of the day. Service is attentive, sometimes to a fault, but they mean well.

Best Local Bet
Need to make a reservation but nothing better than getting a spot at the bar. Best seats. I love ordering appetizers or a pizza and its perfect to share at the bar!!!

Delicious Italian food. Everyone
Delicious Italian food. Everyone at the table loved it. The service is excellent and they were very accommodating.

We very much enjoyed our dinner at Undici. Our bartender, Anthony was very good and friendly. We live in the area and all surrounding neighborhoods have a few pricey restaurants, this restaurant is no differen in fact perhaps more so. $13 (small) martini, $8.50 (small)glass of wine, $27-30 pasta dishes and $52 steak. Like I said, our dinner experience was very good and the food was great but for the prices they charge, it should NEVER be anything less.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Food, Service and
Excellent Food, Service and Extensive italian Wine List at all price levels .
The restaurant was full to capacity and so a little noisier than we normally like.
We definitely will go back soon.

Perfect for a Celebration
My fiancee and I tried Undici for the first time this past Monday evening to celebrate our recent engagement. We were seated immediately in the moderately-lit, noisy dining area downstairs.
The wine list was massive, filled with a wide variety of Italian wines. Our server picked out a solid medium-bodied red to pair with our food.
Speaking of which, the food was incredible. As an appetizer, we split the Polpo (octopus), which was fire-blackened, yet very tender on the inside. The flavors from the octopus, paired with the roasted tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions, was out of this world. Our entrees (breaded skatefish, pork loin) were similarly impressive.
It's a bit pricey, but definitely a good place to celebrate a special event.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Tuscan dishes. Wonderful ambiance. Wine can be pricy. Must search for bargains. Hard to read menu and wine list in a very dim lighting environment. Luckily I had a pocket pen light.

We had a nice time here. The staff was friendly and attentive. Nice atmosphere. I went with a group of four. For appetizers, we had the antipasti platter (small) and the octopus. Very nice sized portions and both were enjoyed by all. We also started with a nice bottle of wine off of their huge wine menu. For dinner we had the whole Branzino, fettuccini with bolognese, lobster ravioli and sea scallops (4 to an order). I ordered the fettuccine and enjoyed the dollop of ricotta on top. It was a solid bolognese but I probably would try something new next time. We finished with coffees which were the perfect end to a relaxing evening. Good food on the expensive side. The service was wonderful. Worth a try.

We dined here to celebrate
We dined here to celebrate my birthday. Impressive number of wines by the glass. Food was pricey but delicious. Can't wait for another occasion to come up so we can return.

Great food no matter your company
The food was great, the service was impeccable but it doesn't matter who you go with because it's too loud in there to hear them anyway. They should really look into some sound-dampening materials as everything is a hard surface and the sound just bounces right off. Vic Rallo obviously works very hard to make this a great experience. He was there making sure each table was just right.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Soothing atmosphere with a stellar wine list, superb food, and attentive service!

This was a very nice place, great food, great service.

Been here many times and its always consistent. A bit pricey, but the food is delicious andthe homemade pasta amazing. Best Bolognese i've ever had.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food and service
The wine selection, grilled octopus appetizer, pasta with bolognese and warm chocolate cake were excellent. The grilled calamari appetizer was okay and the pasta with seafood not so good. The waitress and bus boy were wonderful. Entrees were a little slow in coming out. The noise level (acoustic) was very loud. We'll definitely return, but will probably make it a weeknight, when it might be a little quieter.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good and Expensive
When you go into the city, restaurants pay exorbitant rents and have access to deep pocketed expense accounts, so its easier to accept much higher prices. Its easier to understand the 13 dollar martini and 12 dollar glass of wine or 17 dollar salad, but its hard to make that reach in Rumson, NJ. Undici is way way over priced. There were others in Undici's space that made this mistake and ultimately went out of business. While Rumson is an affluent town, the local folks don't want to pay NYC prices when dining in the suburbs. It's annoying. That said, I found the restaurant to be beautiful, the staff friendly and the food very good.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
JUst a great place,
The food is incredible, the wine list extensive. We try to get there at least 4 times a year. It a special place. Make sure you get a reservation on weekends.

Very enjoyable evening
We had a great time. Food and service were excellent. Especially enjoyed the clams and muscles appetizer.

Anniversary to Remember
We went to Undici for our anniversary with friends. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The italian meat platter...the grande was more than enough for 4 people. We had a variety of dinners...all very good. Crazy wine list. Pricey but we enjoyed everything.

An Edible Experience
Undici is Tastefully decorated. Bar area is classy cozy. First time dining there with my family for my husband's birthday, which made the evening more special. The octopus appetizer was great and my main dish was a pasta with Bolognese sauce.. The real deal!
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
like being in tuscany
the charm of the restaurant brings you back to the old world charm of a villa in tuscany and the food is like it came from the kitchen of your italian grandmother who is very skilled at taste and texture and comfort ....

We visited Undici during Jersey
We visited Undici during Jersey Shore restaurant week. They offered a really nice menu. The food was great and the offer an extensive wine list. The only negative was that our table was near the bar which got very crowded and noisy.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food phenomenal. Wine list superb. Service exceptional. Atmosphere can't be best. A real winner.
