Never get a bad meal....every time we come the food is consistently good, portions are generous and we just love it's a BYOB. Also a big plus is when you get there for your reservation, your table is ready, I've never had to wait more that a few minutes. I try pork chops at every restaurant I go, I've only been to two that I would order them again, the stuffed pork chop at Marra's is AMAZING, moist, juicy and full of flavor. My husband loves the chicken savoy, it's just like the one from Newark.

Friendly, efficient server, varied menu - everything we ordered was delicious (eggplant parm, Veal Marvin, Salmon Piccata)! The only issue I have here is that the noise level, at times, can drown out any possible conversation. For less noise, pick a weekday night, or sit outside weather permitting. (delicious pizza, too - nice thin crust!!)

Very noisy, frenetic. Uncomfortable seating: the chairs are hard wood (no give) and too low! Too low by far so we felt like children sitting at the big people's table. Arugula salad was very good and they kindly offered to split it for us. Chicken Savoy is always reliable. Go for that rather than the Chicken Giambotta which is dry chicken with sliced potatoes and peppers and onions. I mean dry. Pistachio "gelato" was ordinary. The pizzas (we didn't order) looked great--thin and crusty.

Food is really great. Service is attentive. Nice choices on menu, and some traditional Italian dishes have a little "twist" to them, making for eclectic options. Only negatives are that the tables are on top of each other, and the acoustics are not good. The noise level makes it difficult to hear your table mates. If you want a local, solid BYOB, this is it

The service and the food were wonderful. Be prepared to take left overs home as the portions are huge! Comfort food that makes you feel good. The prices are very affordable. The only downside was the noise. There were only 5 of us but we were shouting to be heard and this was on a Wednesday, so not even a super busy night.

Honestly I ate here years ago when they first opened, and had not been back due to noise levels. (had totally enjoyed the food at that visit, but could not hear my table mates at all)
This time we went during the week, to avoid weekend crowds. What a great decision! We could hear one another, the service was on point, and we each loved our dish! I had the Veal Marvin which is different, so tasty, tender, and I have not stopped thinking about it!! Highly recommend this restaurant. Bring your favorite wine, and order the veal!!

I've eaten here 6 or 7 times since I moved into the area and have never been disappointed. The food is reliable and the staff is helpful. It is a BYOB and there is no corkage charge. It is definitely a go to place in an area with an over abundance of restaurants.
