A word from Undici
Undici is the recreation of a Tuscan farmhouse. The stone, woods, plaster and tile are all reminiscent of an era passed. The cuisine consists of the freshest quality ingredients available at market. This allows us to change our menus daily to provide continuing freshness and change. The menu is truly rustic Italian. All of our pasta,including gnocchi and ravioli, are homemade daily using only Caputo Italian flour.

  • Don't go during Restaurant Week!!!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    I've been to Undici many times before and have been pleased every time. I went this past Thursday during restaurant week and while the food was delicious the service was absolutely horrible!! We were treated differently and were also rushed during our meal to make way for full paying customers. As I said before, I have dined there many times prior to Restaurant Week so I can honestly see a difference in service. Shame on our server and her superiors for the less than acceptable service. It was such a negative experience that I won't be going back and neither will the friends that were with me.

    we attended during Restaurant week which had a prix fixe menu with many selections if you wanted to partake. I did notice the portions were a bit smaller than in the past which surprised me. All in all a great dinner.

    The resteraunt ran out of the Branzino (my favorite) and Pork dish (my husbands favorite) and only sausage as a substitution. I also ordered A decaf cappuccino, asking three times to make sure it was decaf and when it was handed to me I also asked if it was decaf... Trust me as someone with a sensitivity to caffeine it wasn't decaf. We went to Undici for resteraunt week to try it out and we had higher expectations it was acceptable but I expected more.

    Dined on 11/7/2014
    Our table was ready promptly at 7:00. We felt a little rushed as soon as we sat down to order. At 7:20 when we ordered, we were told that one of the items on the app list was already not available. There was no other choice that I was looking forward to and settled for the salad. The main course which was the Branzino was exceptionally good as was the desert. The noise level was very loud especially coming from a work day to relax at dinner which detracted from the evening. I would go back though to try the regular menu at some point in the future.

    we recently dined at Undici for the first time. We were pleasantly surprised by the vast wine list and the knowledgable waiter (Gilbert). The meals were presented magnificently with the portions just above what you might call "small." Very well seasoned and the order cam out exactly as we requested (a couple substitutions and meat cooked med rare). The wines by the glass were on a promo (1/2 price on Thurs), which was a nice surprise. The prices are similar to NYC, so for us, it would be a place to go for special evenings.

    This restaurant is highly overrated and surely not worth it. The food was bland, tasteless and just edible. The pumpkin soup was bland, watery and the only thing that tasted pumpkin was the pumkin seeds. Quail was dry, the pork chop was smothered with gravy that should be used for meatloaf. The pasta was gross more like a chef boy ar dee. Dessert at best was sponge cake to pass it off as this apple crisp. Worst restaurant in Monmouth County.. Never going back

    Nothing bad to say about the restaurant, but it was just okay. Not worth the price. Service was decent, but it was annoying that they had so many servers, busboys, managers wandering around the restaurant, yet we had to ask for water refills. Salads were good, but over-priced. Pumpkin ravioli was tasty, but not enough sauce. Halibut was a little fishy. Steaks were good, but hardly worth top end steak restaurant prices. Noise level is ridiculous - the restaurant can easily add some sound absorbing material to fix this and is something that everyone mentions about this place.

    Victor Rallo seems to have used all of the knowledge he's gained from his extensive travel to Italy and brought back a comprehensive menu and wine list covering all of the regions of Italy (read: if you're looking for chicken parmesan or baked ziti, this is not the place for you). I don't think I've ever seen such an extensive wine list in any Italian restaurant and lived in NYC for 15 years. The sommelier was friendly and knowledgeable and suggest a delicious red that didn't break the bank. The waitress was very friendly and the entire staff was attentive (the manager stopped by during each course to see how we were doing - a nice touch). The menu well represents the diverse cuisine of Italy and portions were the perfect size.

    I like Undici. It is a very nice place with fine food, good service, and a huge wine list. It is on the expensive side though. Dinner for 4 of us, with one not drinking, and no appetizers, came to $275 before tip. Not cheap, but quite nice.

    Well done Undici!! Everything is spot on from the bar, food and drinks to service and ambiance! Excellent food with seasonal menu items, extensive wine list & professional & friendly staff!! Decor makes you feel like you're dining in Italy!! Although I like it, some may say the lighting is too dim. A bit pricey but worth every penny!! Look for mid week specials & make reservations especially on weekends!

    A nice surprise- have driven by this place for years and had never been inside. Excellent salad, scrumptious pizza- super thin crust- totally worth it. Wine list could be expanded. Very attentive service and rustic, but nice decor. Will definitely return. Very large bar - nice place to relax too!

    Our friends recommended this place to us. We were there on a Saturday night and it was packed. It was very loud and noisy, so we couldn't really have a full on conversation. It was also quite warm inside. However, the service was fast and good and the food was quite tasty. I would definitely go back.
