Lunello is a favorite of my husband and myself, so it only seemed fitting to get my parents a gift card for their anniversary. They had a wonderful time! Couldnt stop raving about the food and the service! They even got an anniversary song sung to them! Perfect!

Worth the Price
We had a wonderful meal on Easter at LuNello's. We had heard good things about this restaurant, and we were not disappointed. From the chicken to the fish, all the plates were delicious. Service was a little slow, but I chalked that up to the holiday crowd.
Salads were fresh, the meal entree was excellent and even the ice cream and sorbet was excellent. I highly recommend this place for an enjoyable evening meal.

Our first time dining at LuNello's
Our first time dining at LuNello's and we're sorry we hadn't found out about it sooner. Everything from the appetizers through the desert was first class and absolutely delicious. Our waiter, Fernando, was fantastic. All in all it was a great dining experience and we'll be returning soon.

Best Italian Restaurant in North NJ
We've been to this restaurant in the past and the food is consistently excellent. We had early reservations--all we could get--and by the time we left it was quite crowded so I would recommend making reservations well in advance. You will not be sorry as the food is exquisite and the service superb. I had a Pacific bass special and quite honestly I have never had better fish. Not only was it very fresh, but the preparation was to die for.

I thought the food was good, service was great. A stricter dress code should be enforced.

We went to this restaurant for our anniversary. From the appetizers all the way to dessert the food was delicious. Fresh ingredients prepared simply and harmoniously. The service was very professional and attentive without being annoying. The specials list was very long and a little overwhelming. We chose to get there early, around 6:30, before it got busy. Once more people started pouring in it got a little noisy. Overall we would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves Italian food and doesn't want to pay a fortune.

Awesome soft shell crabs!
Had a wonderful meal at LuNellos the other night with a work colleague and the food was fantastic. We started off with some blue point oysters with mignonette sauce and they were extremely fresh and briny. The stuffed figs as well as the seafood salad were delicious and I was feeling quite full at this point however, I never pass up an opportunity to enjoy soft shell crabs! The crabs were cooked perfectly and it was actually a good sized portion. I passed on dessert but my coworker enjoyed the bread pudding which I have had many times in the past. The service was okay... It could have been a bit more attentive but we enjoyed ourselves regardless.

Had a decent experience except we were given the worse table in the restaurant. This was painful since it was after 9PM & the restaurant was beginning to thin out.

Still the best in North Jersey
Although I only get back to North Jersey a few times a year, I make it a point to visit LuNello's. Absolute perfection every time - from start to finish. Be sure to ask for Mario as your waiter, wonderful man who is a real professional. I've been a regular over the years and have not had one small part of any meal go wrong. It's just that consistently exceptional. The proof is simple - they moved to a place three times the size as the old restaurant and the tables are full with no change in quality. Remarkable.

As usual, great food, service, personnel, ambiance. I'm going back soon.

It doesn't matter how many times I go to this restaurant, I have not been disappointed. Everything from appetizer to dessert is absolute wonderful. My suggestions is not to be to quick to order from the menu, first wait to hear of the over 20 nights specials and you will be pleasantly surprise. KUDOS to the staff, especially the waiter who cites all these specials without a written list.

Real Food Done Really Well
LuNello's is truly the one restaurant that has ever impressed me; the service, the presentation of the dishes, the flavors, and the freshness of the food is what makes LuNello so excellent. Dine at LuNello's just once, and you'll wonder why you would ever dine anywhere else.

First time dining here - will definitely return. While waiting for our table (the only downside - we had an 8 PM reservation but still had to wait half an hour), we noticed a lot of the patrons seemed to know the staff. Apparently there is a lot of repeat business. When we sat down, I started reviewing the extensive wine list. Their selection was beyond impressive. Food was just as good. There was an incredible amount of specials on top of a healthy amount of choices of choices on the menu. Everything from the first course to dessert was amazing. Their were able to nail Italian as well as Asian influenced dishes seamlessly. Overall a great dining experience - will be back!

Great neighborhood gem!
We love LuNello's! Usually we've gone there on "date night" -- but recently we took our little ones (ages 5 and 2) with us for dinner there. We had a great meal and the will be back again soon!

the gang that did shoot straight
The food was good. My za.... raying would be in the high 20s.
The tables were comfortably spaced. The atmosphere reminded me of a Mario Lanza set, waiters in bad tuxedos a dated sense of style inside and out. Yet leaving out the soprano jokes very good.

LuNello's is a tough spot to land a table, always crowded, but when you are lucky enough to be one of the fortunate who can dine at Lunello's, it is a great experience. Food quality and portion size is excellent! Salmon with pistachio's was terrific along with the superb short ribs. A must appetizer is the seafood di mare. Service is excellent and attentive. The staff is very experienced and listen closely to the specials. LuNello's list of specials is unbelievable! A must spot for Foodies and wine lovers! Enjoy!

Amazing menu plus tons of specials
And everything delicious. Just the way it was ordered.

Pricey, but delicious
We made this reservation based on excellent reviews we read about the food and we were well prepared for the prices. Both were exactly what we expected. The seafood salad appetizer special was excellent!

Food to die for
It is hard to have a bad dish at LuNello. Everything is made from the best and finest ingredients and the sauces are fantastic. We always opt for the specials and never get disappointed. I had a stuffed veal dish that was really tender, melt in your mouth veal and a sauce that lasts with you long after the meal. My wife had pecan encrusted salmon, that is pretty common these days, but not the way they prepared it. Really great night, as always.

Excellent food, great service. Is now one of my regular spots to dine.
