Great venue for Easter dinner
Great venue for Easter dinner with the family. We had a large party of 11 and the service was very attentive and the food was excellent. We will be back!

Simply Outstanding Italian Food
Another great meal in a beautiful setting!
The salads we choose were La Pergola and a Fennel Salad. Both were very fresh, very large with unique dressings that made you want to finish them. For dinner, my husband had the homemade broccoli rabe parpadelle with a rabbit ragu & I had the homemade spinach linguine with filet mignon tips in a mushroom cream sauce. Presentations were beatiful & simply delicious! Portions were very generous - take home was necessary. For dessert we split the homemade limoncello cake that was simply amazing!
Husband and wife Owners are always onsite checking all tables and making sure that everyone is happy, satisfied, and has everything they need.
One of our favorite BYOB italian restaurants!

One of my favorites!
One of our favorite restaurants. The mussels are delectable. The squid ink pasta, which they make on the premises is also remarkable. My husband usually orders the osso bucco if it is on the menu. He swears it is the best he has ever tasted. That's saying a lot since he lived part of his childhood in Italy. Another favorite is the veal shank. What is amazing about the owners, is their willingness to do whatever it takes to make you happy. So special requests and alterations to the menu are permissible.
Even the pickiest of esters will be satisfied.

Terrific local restaurant. Great, professional service. Varied menu.

We felt that it was a bit
We felt that it was a bit over priced for what we ordered. We never mind paying for exceptional food, but for a BYOB, we paid the same amount as if we ordered a bottle of wine.

Fabtastic menu, and fantastic
Fabtastic menu, and fantastic food. Presentation as well as taste were flawless. Service was outstanding.

Amazing experience at La Pergola
Everything about our trip to La Pergola was perfect. The attentive (yet not overbearing) service, the menu selection, the taste and quality of the food and the portion to price ratio. This is awesome find - true italian cooking with the service you would expect at the nicest of nice restaurants. We will be back.
Also, dessert was amazing. Tiramisu and tartufo were huge hits.

Creative Upscale Italian
From the delicious appetizers to the homemade pasta and the warm biscotti, the food was delicious and creative. I would recommend La Pergola to those who desire great service, and a creative culinary Italian experience.

Very pleasant experience...
La Pergola is definitely a return to restaurant. We celebrated a friends birthday, besides the food being deelish, the owner went out of his way in providing the perfect table set up for the occasion. We all ordered a pasta dish, some were the specials of the day, fresh tasting and perfect.

Outstanding food and service
We celebrated a special anniversary at La Pergola and they exceeded all expectations. The food was interesting, well-presented and delicious. My wife had rack of lamb and I had gilled veal chop. Both were excellent. Service was friendly and helpful. I was particularly impressent that, as a BYOB, the waiter took great care with a fragile cork from the 25 year old super Tuscan wine that I brought with me. The owner checked in with us a few times to make sure all was going well. I would recommend this place highly.
6/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious food and outstanding
My family and I are repeat diners at La Pergola. We love the ambience and attention to every detail shown by the chef and waiters. The owner clearly desires that each customer has a wonderful dining experience.

An excellent place to dine
It is one of our favorite places to dine. Everything is absolutely superb!!!
There are numerous wonderful choices on the regular menu PLUS specials.

An absolutely wonderful experience
An absolutely wonderful experience from the service to the most deliciously prepared food. The spinach gnocchi is a new favorite.
6/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Thanks for a great evening
We dined here to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary and immediatly fell in love with this wonderful restaurant owned by a charming and very talented couple. We can highly recommend the food and attentive service. We were treated like family and will be back.

Don't miss this
Everything we ordered at La Pergola was delicious from the fig wrapped in prosciutto appetizer to each of the three pastas we shared. For me the key word is fresh - everything was fresh. The service was fun, interactive, and prompt. Especially nice was a visit from one of the owners, personally inquiring about our experience. I can't wait to return
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our second time to the restaurant and the food/service has been fabulous both times (my wife and I are hard core foodies). The owners are very creative with their menu (ie infusing vegetables into their home made pasta). The ambiance is a little stuffy, but the food and service more than make up for it. I'm shocked that this place has been open for 3 years and isn't packed every weekend! We also love the fact that they support local farms/farmers markets. It will definitely be a regular for us.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
delicious casual dining
Food was great. Restaurant a little noisy. Wait staff professional.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent dining experience
We totally enjoyed this neighborhood gem. Salads and other appetizers were well prepared, and each course was perfectly prepared. Service was equally great and we promise to return often!
7/20/2013 5:00:00 PM
A superb place to dine!!!
Food, service, ambiance-everything is outstanding. It's become our favorite place to dine.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
we were there on a tuesday
we were there on a tuesday evening and it was very quiet. the food and service were very good.
it would be better to go there later in the week when more tables would be occupied.
overall, a very nice evening.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Warm welcome and wonderful service
Delightful dinner. We arrived at 9:30 on a Sunday night and received a warm welcome and were not rushed. Service could not have been better. Fried zucchini -- wonderful; pasta -- good but a little too heavy given the hour; lamb -- also very good. We will definitely return!

Exceptional meal. Attentive,
Exceptional meal. Attentive, yet non-obtrusive servers.

La pergola never fails to satisfy!! The food, service and ambience is always excellent and memorable.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
A favorite spot
We once again had a fantastic meal at La Pergola. The service is great and the owners
are charming and very attentive to guests. Highly recommend!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
yet another good Italian restaurant
The appetizer and the fish entrees were very good. The pasta entree was very tasty also but could have used some more shellfish in it (no scallops at all). Overall a very good dining experience and one worth repeating.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, friendly service and terrific ambience. It's like having dinner at a good friends home. Argon and Adrina are so welcoming. Just go, Bring your favorite bottle of wine and enjoy.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
La Pergola turned out to be just a wonderful choice for my Wife and I to celebrate our Anniversary. The warm, greeting ambiance of the place and fantastic menu deserve only accolades. The attention to detail is a mark of how serious they take your dining experience...La Pergola is truly a gem!
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great place to dine
Superb service, excellent food. One of our favorite places to dine.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
delicious home-made food
I really appreciate homemade pasta-especially homemade gnocchi, and especially Pergola's homemade gnocchi stuffed with mozzarella. just delicious. the desserts are typical Italian-tartufo, cannoli, etc-but done the best they can be. fabulous! the main courses were excellent as well. the service is superb though a bit slow. not bad if you want to linger a bit and enjoy the wonderful food.
10/3/2013 5:00:00 PM
We went here on a girls night and it was fantastic. Service was great and the food was delicious. We will definitely be back. I love that's it byob.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent service and food
We went to have a "quick dinner" before a show at PApermill. While they were very accommodating getting us in and out, we wish we could have had more time to "dine". There were four of us and every meal was fantastic! Will definitely go back!!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
What an enjoyable meal!
The service and food at La Pergola are fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The prices are a bit high, but well merited. We will definitely return! The best part is that it is a BYOB and they take reservations.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best pasta ever!!
What a find!! We randomly picked this place on Open Table, but it is a true gem. From the moment you are greeted, to the excellent wait staff that knows the menu and can speak to all the dishes, to the food... this place was awesome. This place is a winner with all of their homemade pastas (that are out of this world), the pastries are homemade, the cost is reasonable and the place is BYOB, what more can I say. We will definitely be back again and again.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
great meal all around
The food and service was great. Very attentive staff and owner.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Food and Atmosphere
Went to La Pergola before a show at the papermill. GREAT food and Wonderful service. Menu had plenty to pick from and great specials. Staff was very pleasant and efficient. Would definitely visit again!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service is slow...too much
Service is slow...too much time in between courses and even before the 1st course. Food was very good.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Atmosphere was very nice and sophisticated, yet welcoming. Food was excellent and the variety of the food selection was fantastic. We had a vegan in our party and it was no problem finding selections and the servers were accomodating to her needs. Servers were attentive. Would definitely come back.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful place for dinner
Wonderful place for dinner before the theatre. The wait staff was perfectly attentive, not overbearing. Food was excellent and beautifully presented. BYOB is a great way to save on the cost of dinner. We informed them we had tickets for the theatre and they made sure we were able to leave on time. We will definitely be going back.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for Theater Date
A wonderful place to dine before and after the theater.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
huge , wonderful menu. I have never seen so much homemade pasta and so delicious too! everything is perfect including the typically Italian desserts done flawlessly.
so glad Pergola is only 10 minutes from my house.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
This is a solid restaurant - very good, if not outstanding. There are limited choices in Milburn, and this is better than most. Location for pre-Paper Mill Theatre dining makes it an excellent choice if you're going there.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
A wonderful, elegant and quite place with linen napkins and an attentive owner. The food is excellent worthy of any NYC resturant.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Always fresh,delightfully prepared to order. I know others reference the price but seriously, you get what you pay for in life. Yes, there are restaurants all over Millburn where you could eat for less but you will NOT enjoy the fine dining experience of La Pergola.
The owners are very visible, warm, welcoming and make me feel as though they want to insure a positive experience for every diner.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Food, Great Service
I have been there with friends, family and everyone loves it regardless of whether it's a special occasion or just a Friday night out.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best in Town
Besides having tables spaced nicely so one can converse; besides starched white linens; besides charming, knowledgeable wait staff, besides BYOB - the food is delicious. Calves liver well prepared and you can't get it at most restaurants. Duckling was crispy on outside and tender within and had an orange sauce. Mussels were fresh and vegetable soup tasty. It's near the PaperMill Playhouse with convenient parking garage across the street.
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
La Pergola has the highest
La Pergola has the highest rating in our book for excellence in food and customer service. We highly enjoyed the delicious crispy duck, the rack of lamb, the sole, and the unique calamari. We have brought friends here multiple times to enjoy this fine dining in Millburn and look forward to many more visits!
