A typical, most enjoyable evening at one of the best restaurants in NJ. The drinks were more than adequate and served in a fairly fast manner. The veal parm, linguini with clam sauce and the shrimp dish were outstanding. The dessert tray was to die fo and the cappacino was very good. From the front desk to the rest of the waite staff, service was outstanding. Scott was his normal wonderful self and gave us an excellent table to talk and eat. Thanks to all for another great evening.

Our dinner was very good however we didn't like our table. It was dark and hard to see the menu. Also we understand that prices are going up but thought the price was a little high. My husband didn't get the correct side vegetable but what he was given was good. Also we didn't like how many items were mark market price. The chief should know weekly what the price will be and the menu should state it.

A Touch of Italy
Responded on November 3, 2021

KathyC, thank you for the 5 star review, the items we have marked as market price are meats and items that contain crabmeat, as these prices fluctuate each time we purchase them, and we can not re print our menu every week. All of our meals include a soup or salad and a side dish. We are sorry that we changed the vegetable of the day, but glad that your husband enjoyed it.

The dinner was delicious! The service was perfect. I’ve been going to this restaurant for many years. I remember when they used to decorate in the Autumn at the entrance and fireplace with pumpkins and cornstalks and beautiful mums. Now there are no decorations inside. Sad. Also the noise level was THROUGH THE ROOF! I had to scream for the waiter ( who was wonderful) to hear my order. The Penne Vodka is the best!

Responded on November 5, 2021

Peggy, very glad you enjoyed dinner and our service, thank you for the compliments! We have decorated outside, and will soon be decorating for Christmas as we always do. Depending on the number of guests in the building and party sizes it can get loud at times, as can happen at any restaurant, we try to do everything within our control to keep the noise level reasonable.

OUTSTANDING! The veal piccata with crab was delicious; perfectly cooked and a sauce that was too good not to sop up with the home-made bread. Sides were great, too, as was the divine home-made cannoli. What a delightful surprise to find such a world-class Italian restaurant in Egg Harbor Township; this place could easily compete among the best in Little Italy in NYC.

Great dinner…. Disappointed that the waitress brought a draft beer when my father specially said bottle. Most people do not like beer on tap…. So when a guest asks if u have Coors light in a bottle…. Say no ….. only on Tap. Also, i asked for Rigatoni with my veal parmigiana and i got Ziti. Service was a bit slow but it was restaurant week. And this is the second year u changed your menu for restaurant week from what u advertised online…. NO FILET MIGNON !!! The waitress brought a nice cheese cake with candles and happy birthday on the plate for my mom. Very Nice! Would definitely recommend! Thank you!

Responded on October 9, 2021

DebbieS, We are sorry for the confusion with the beer, and the pasta I will address this with our staff. I am not sure where you saw that we offered Filet Mignon on our AC Restaurant week menu, we have never offered a Filet Mignon with our Restaurant Week choices. We do cook everything to order, including the pasta so meals can take some time to cook, we strive for consitancey and freshness. Thank you for the 5 star review and the compliments on the birthday dessert for you mom.

Horrible overpriced food, I'd rather go to Applebees. Two out of 3 orders were messed up. The only good item was tiramisu but it was half a size of a regular restaurant portion. Will never come back and would not recommend.

A Touch of Italy
Responded on October 9, 2021

Jessica, very sorry that some of your orders came out incorrect, hoping you informed us so we could correct them. I am assuming that you ordered from our Prix Fixe AC Restaurant week menu, this menu is designed as a 3 course meal and give each guest an opportunity to taste our food, this is the reason for the smaller piece of Tiramisu.

Sat at a table for 30 minutes and the waitress never came to our table. One waitress for approx 8 tables and a few were large parties. Other diners were complaining how long it took for them to get service, food, drinks, bill. At that point, we decided to leave and go somewhere else for our anniversary dinner. The room we were in was quieter than the main dining room which was very loud.

It was my birthday celebration with 11 girls. The best restaurant manager in town, Scott, started the fantastic night out by seating us in the side private room. Then we were greeted by our waitress,Artis, who was never overwhelmed by our large party of girls asking for this n asking for that lol. She was wonderful!!! The food was wonderful from the apps to salads to entrees. Nobody had any problem w their meal. Everybody raved about their meal! And I believe we gave them some enjoyment and a few laughs as well!♥️

Booked outside for (12), ended up being the parking lot. Met with the Manager Scott who painstakingly rearranged a good portion of the restaurant to move us inside where it was much better.
