My wife really enjoyed her Veal Parmesan, I however made the wrong choice and ordered the Linguini Cardinale, the clams and shrimp in the dish appeared and tasted like they came from a can, very salty, shocking with a price point of $27.50. The salads were good, my wife had the house salad and I had the pear salad, The Key Lime Pie for dessert was homemade and delicious, overall very good, my entree was the only disappointment, shame.

Food was delicious, our server was very good. The table next to us was very loud and distracting. Our hostess seemed to be seating everyone together in a cluster which didn't make sense since the restaurant was not that crowded.

Place was packed and very glad we made a reservation on Open Table. Wait times were 45 minutes for those without...we sat right at 8:30 pm. Minor confusion over names but it was settled. Service was very good but it did seem as if they were lite on waitresses. Food was great and hot considering the crowd. We were there about 90 minutes start to finish. Tables were very close together...I do not want to hear other's conversations.

Have been frequenting Touch of Italy since they were a small pizza shop. Have always enjoyed their food and value and ambience. However, this visit was the worst time ever. The menu was the smallest offering ever. We were seated at 7:15 and notified by waiter that 4 items were already no longer available. The worst part of the evening is that the band was overly loud and we were seated in back room mere feet from the music. The 6 of us were unable to converse. Friends at another table in the rear room were also affected the same. Our meals were merely satisfactory. Two people at our table had the carrot cake and each said it was the best they have ever eaten. This is the poorest rating I have ever given to any place I have dined.

PatrickS, we are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your experience with us on New Years Eve. We were very busy and did unfortunetly sell out of some of our specials, they were very popular selections that evening. We also use a limited menu on major Holidays to help our kitchen keep up with the pace. We would like to learn more about your visit if you would either call or email Scott, 609-646-1855 or contact@touchofitaly.net, we would appreciate it. Thank you

New Year’s Eve. Every place is busy and Touch of Italy was no exception. Very busy but tables spaced for safety. All employees were masked and most customers. Our waitress was very attentive. Food arrived in a reasonable time and the food was hot. Highly recommend for dinner

Restaurant was crowded and noisy- but that is to be expected on a New Years Eve evening.

Food was OK but not up to previous meals at this restaurant. Kitchen was probably rushed trying to turn tables due to holiday crowd.

I must say our server was excellent. He was attentive and patient despite the very hectic atmosphere in the restaurant.

We were seated in a side room (not the main dining room) because of the larger then normal crowd. The noise was excessive and did not contribute to a relaxing meal.

I'll give them a pass this time because it was NYE and not a normal friday night.

Hopefully it will be better on my next visit.

What can I say! It was ten years of spending Christmas Eve with Scott and the staff at Touch of Italy. The restaurant is decorated very nicely putting you in the Christmas Spirit…the wait staff wear a variety of outfits that fit very closely to Santa and his helpers. The food is a Christmas Eve menu having most of the mainstay dishes on it. My wife had the veal parm and I had the Linguini Cardinals. It was the first time for that dish for me and it was wonderful. The soup and salad were also very good - I had the tortellini with shrimp and clams - scrumptious. A few cocktails and dinner left us no room for dessert. Again, thanks to Scott and his staff, Christmas Eve was a big hit!

Excellent meal on Christmas Eve. Restaurant was full but there was plenty of staff to keep dinner moving at the correct pace -- no large gaps between courses. Chicken escarole soup was excellent as was the seafood ravioli. Other guests had the fish dish and the pork chop, both portions were large and they said they were prepared perfectly. Sides for the pork and fish were green beans, asparagus, and roasted potatoes. Bread was good but not warm. I prefer it warm. Service was efficient, friendly, and helpful. Restaurant was decorated nicely for the season and the music was Christmas themed and not too loud. Varied dessert offering -- we chose the lemoncello cake which was light and delicious and another guest chose the coconut cheesecake which he said was also very good.
Nice meal -- recommend this restaurant.

We eat at Touch of Italy regularly and have been going to dinner on Christmas Eve for the last 5 years. This year was the best. They really did a great job with setting no long wait like previous years and service and food was great. They also spaced the restaurant out so you were not sitting close to other patrons. Really great experience.

We had a very nice time at the bar before dinner. The bartender prepared excellent manhattans

There were then 6 of us for dinner at a lovely round table next to the fireplace. Our server was efficient and pleasant.

We had a very good and reasonably priced bottle of wine. Our apps of Calamari, baked clams and Long Hots were all delicious.

Dinner entrees were good but the veal parm was not up to the usual TOI deliciousness.

All in all a nice evening celebrating my wife’s birthday.
