A Touch of Italy
Our Family Chef personally selects the freshest wild fish and creates made to order daily specials, as well as a tradition of great attention to detail with every appetizer, entree and dessert that we serve.
We are a long time South Jersey favorite, our family takes great pride in our food and service.
We welcome you to enjoy a true Italian dining experience, and to become part of our family.
This is our "go to" restaurant for calamari en casserole but this time was disappointing. Asked for the pasta on the side with marinara sauce so that the calamari is in a separate dish with its own sauce. It came as a single platter & when the server realized the mistake she took it back. Thinking that a completely new meal would be returned we were surprised to have the original platter of pasta and then a small soup size bowl with the calamari but no extra sauce - obviously it had just been scooped off the top of the pasta. This has never happened before and we should have discussed it with the owners at the time.
DLNE, We are disappointed to hear that you did not have your usual experience with us. Please accept our appology for this error, and ask for Scott the next time you are in
We took some friends to our favorite restaurant and everything was perfect.
Thank you GeraldS
Bartenders were the worst I have seen in a while. Never noticing us even though they were busy sitting for maybe 5-7 minutes. Did not see us at all! Even to pay the bill they had to be flagged down. Took a while for that as well. Server was just ok, nice enough but forgot sides for two of us although we did not say anything because we did not really need them. Was surprised at this. Food was very good and atmosphere was nice. Might try again

BrendaJ, Thank you
Food was outstanding there was 3 of us for dinner the fettuccine Alfredo was perfect. Veal Francese was excellent able to cut the veal with a fork. I had the Chicken Parmigiana which perfect. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Thank you Gator54
The food is always consistently great. Lively bar and happy hour. Scott, the GM, is so great. He’s is an asset to this restaurant. Pat, who has been our server at Touch of Italy for years, is always fantastic. It’s worth a trip. Classy place with delicious food and excellent cocktails.
babynurse1, Thank you very much
My only concern was that we had a 6:15 reservation made on OpenTable and when I went to the hostess she informed me it would be about a 15 minute wait which turned into over 20 minutes. I can understand if I have a 7:00 reservation that I might have to wait for someone who is taking a long time with dinner, but at 6:15 I wouldn't think that should be an issue. Either you are booking too many reservations or not timing correctly. Food is good with a nice salad and bread included. I'll go back, but "early bird" !
We are sorry for your wait, we do occasionally get busy early and it happened to be on the Saturday of your visit. This does not usually happen at earlier times. Very glad you enjoyed the food. We look forward to serving you again Thank you
Touch of Italy is our "go to" place to eat! The food is consistently very good. The sevice is responsive yet not intrusive. It is an great value too! My personal favorite is the eggplant rollatini! I often compare Touch of Italy's version to others and they always come out a winner!
Always an enjoyable experience.
Food excellent. Sometimes have to wait even with reservations. It’s been super busy lately. Probably because the food is so good and not too too expensive.
JanetW, Thank you for the great review, and our applogy if you had to wait for a table. We look forward to serving you again soon.
The house salad dressing was very tasty - I believe salad is included with every meal, which is great. Our entire party enjoyed our meals. I had a chicken dish that includes prosciutto, eggplant and mozzarella in a light cream sauce that was delicious. We had an 8:00 reservation for 6 on a Friday night but still had to wait a bit. And our server was very busy and it took a while for him to come over but he did apologize, promise to be with us shortly, which he was, and the service was fine from then on. They seemed to have a good amount of large parties to take care of. The desserts are made by a local baker and were excellent also. I highly recommend the chocolate heaven - it was heavenly :)
BarbaraS, Our salad dressing is homemade, and we do serve a soup or salad with each entree. We applogize for the wait, and are very glad that the service was good from then on. Very glad you ejnoyed the Chicken Sorrentino and Heaven, and your guests enjoyed there meals as well. Thank you for the review, hope to see you again soon!
Had a reservation. Still had to wait 20 minutes even though tables available. Understaffed
Very sorry for the inconvience, we were, unfortunetly short a server on this night. We hope you enjoyed your meals, and will dine with us again. Thank you
I was in town for work and found this gem through yelp. The food was delicious. Portions are large and we couldn’t finish it all since the pasta dishes came with soup or salad. The flourless Chocolate cake is amazing! I had enough leftovers for another meal the next day.
Thank you, very glad you enjoyed your experience with us!
Pleasant atmosphere, delicious food as always. My go to restaurant when I have guests and just want a fabulous meal.
Lena the owner is wonderful, and goes above and beyond to make sure everyone is happy, comfortable, and satisfied.
GiaL, thank you for the great compliments, very glad you enjoy dining with us
Touch of Italy has the best veal in town!
Boxster, Thank you very much!
My second time here and again was not disappointed went with my parents and sat at a booth at the bar. The music was excellent. Food and drink service were well done. Love the chicken pastine and the chicken escarole soup. Can't say enough about the waiter he was excellent and very attentive considering how busy it was at 630. Definitely going back and well worth the price. Keep up the great work
Thank you very much
Delicious Italian Cuisine ! Tomato Mozzarella salad to start, some Mozzarella sticks as well, very good. Chicken Pastina was just ok, probably wouldn't order it again. Lasagna was good, could have used a little extra sauce but overall a good meal. Price was average for the food ordered. Cocktails were ok, not great. Service was very good. Definitely recommend and will return.
Thank you jerseyguy4445
Food and Service Excellent. Waiter was a Real Professional.
RobK, Thank you

MikeD, Thank you
Lovely restaurant. Second time there. Looking forward to our next visit. Delicious!
BarbaraF, Thank you
We love Touch of Italy. I don’t know if it is the same owners, but we were going back when it was in a shopping center. Always one of those places you can count on a good meal whether with family, young and old; and as a couple or out with friends.
I would’ve given all five stars, but there was a problem. The waitress was actually very sweet, so the problem with the service I don’t believe was her fault. It seems that they had a big party, and weren’t able to accommodate that party as well as everyone out in the restaurant. We had a two-year-old with us. Thankfully she is easy to occupy as our reservation was at seven and we got seated shortly after. But we were still eating dinner at 9 o’clock. We ordered a plain pasta dish for her. It was a much later night than expected with a little one. No matter what else is being served I don’t think that should’ve taken long.
I will definitely be back as it is always one of our Consistently good restaurants. But I will be very disappointed if this happens again
The waiter was a nightmare. He needs training on table manners. He was rude and arrogant.
ToniL, we are very disappointed that you did not have good service during your visit with us. We would appreciate finding out more about this. Please email or call me 609-646-1855 and ask for Scott, or firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to getting your feedback on this issue. Thank you
My favorite place, for an occasion or just a fabulous meal. I recommend A Touch of Italy to everyone. The best food, and the best employees. You must dine here.
Vegan, Thank you for the nice review and all the great compliments!!
I wish they would offer baked potato instead of the potato choice with peppers. The sides were limited, the waitress mentioned additional choices which we ordered. Only to find out there was a $5 up-charge on the bill.
Rick, thank you for the nice review and the feedback. We will make sure I servers inform guests of any additional charges as well. Thank you
Love Touch of Italy for celebrating and a good night out!😊
Thank you MarianneR
Excellent service. Great food. My husband and I really enjoy our anniversary dinner. The server was super awesome.
Nicky, glad you enjoyed your anniversary with us!
It was our wedding anniversary. Management gave us a nice dessert prepared just got us with the words Happy Anniversary spelled out in red frosting.
Happy Anniversary, thank you for dining with us!
Our server was awesome. Food was great but we almost walked out due to the rudeness of the hostess. Had a reservation for eight people for 7:00. Seven of my party showed up at 6:45 and spoke to a gentleman and he said it would be a few minutes to seat us. I arrived at 7:00 and saw my party at the bar and went over to them. I then went and talked to the female hostess and told her I had a reservation She asked my name and she said “you had a 7:00 reservation”. I said that’s correct. I then asked her the time and she said “it’s 7:03 and we are very busy now” I laughed thinking she was joking but she wasn’t. I then went back to the bar and told the group what she just said. Everyone wanted to go to the library restaurant and we were all leaving but we saw the gentleman who my group originally saw at 6:45. He apologized and set a table immediately. I’m glad we stayed. The er er was awesome and the food was delicious. Our group of 8 men go out every other week and because of the hostess we wouldn’t return here and that’s a shame.
Thank you for dining with us, we are very glad that everyone enjoyed the meal and the sevice. Very sorry for confusion by the hostess. I would like to discuss this with you. Please give me a call 609-646-1855 and ask for Scott.
Michael was an excellent server.
JWood, Thank you, will pass the compliment on to Michael

Thank you Jersey Girl
This would have been a five star review but the entertainment in the lounge was horrible and her singing carried into the dining room!! Made us want to leave as quickly as possible!!
Thank you, we are sorry you did not enjoy the entertainment.
The dinner food
Sorry to hear you only find us to be three stars. We hope you will give us another opportunity to showcase our food and service.
We had reservations and went right to our table when we arrived. Service was excellent and the food hot and delicious. The waitress brought out dessert on a large plate that said Happy Birthday. Great place to eat.
Ceffy, Thank you very much
As usual the food and service were great
BigLew, Thank you
