    As always, Ernesto's food quality is outstanding, reasonably priced for the simple, fresh and pleasant experience. Parking is a bit challenging, but worth the efforts.

    Ernesto is in our neighborhood and we've dined here many times. Food is always good and I highly recommend you give it a try. The pasta is cooked just right and the specials of the day are special.

    Ernesto's is an outstanding, traditional Italian restaurant with exceptional pizza. It seems to have devolved into a weekend restaurant for families but the food and deserve a larger audience.

    This restaurant has deteriorated since I first ate there over thirty-five years ago. The place was empty as it had been the last few times I'd eaten there over the last few years.Pasta portion was very generous but also very dull. Wine selection poor, in- attentive service in an empty restaurant. There's a much better Italian restaurant within two minutes walking.

  • I have been eating at Ernesto's
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    I have been eating at Ernesto's on and off for 25 years and in the past I have always had a very positive experience. This time I brought friends who had never been there before. It was a disappointing experience. The food was frankly not up to my expectations and the service was mediocre. But most unacceptable was a double charge on the check. My guests had purchased a bottle of wine for $25- prior to my arrival and paid in cash. When the check came this was double charged. In the future I will think twice about patronizing this establishment.

    Hadn't been to Ernesto's in a number of years and was pleasantly surprised that it was as good, if not better than it had always been. We'll definitely be back more often!

    Ernesto's is an occasional treat for us. Their specials are always well executed. When they present a fish special, you may be sure it will be perfectly cooked, whether poached, grilled, or roasted--something that can't be said of many a more pretentious place. In fact, grilling in general here is expertly done. The scope of the menu never strays far from the usual Italian in America. Pastas are nicely cooked and sauced with a not too heavy hand. Salads and desserts are okay--nothing special, but there if you want to complete the meal.

    We have been going for years, the mussels are excellent. They did not have them on the Friday we went, so had the clams in stead. Will have them again. The waiter however, left a little something to be desired. He was the only one to serve (at least it appeared so) the customers so really could not focus. Forgot a request for bread and had to be reminded about the wine. But, overall, will go again.

    This is the first time I've been back to Ernesto's in many years. I was pleased to find the food to still be excellent with great service. Between the 4 of us dining, we all had different dishes, shared tastes and everything was excellent. I will be back.
