Food is always very good and the service is great. Depending on where you get seated, it can sometimes be a little noisy especially if you are were looking to go for quiet conversation.

We met friends there and our table was ready immediately. The place was pretty busy, but the service was excellent. I had the Chicken Cannelloni and it was excellent. I love the bread they serve as well. I have eaten there many times and never been disappointed.

The restaurant was busy on a Sunday evening, a testament to the great food found here. It is also BYOB which is a plus in our book. The complimentary bruschetta is a treat and the bread basket is excellent. We shared steamed clams in white and garlic to start..an ample portion of sweet little clams. Dinners were DH’s favorite of veal parmigiana and my choice of chicken al Porto, with asparagus, mushrooms and a tasty sauce, which was also on my angel hair pasta. Portions are large! Lunches for a few days! Couldn’t resist a cannoli for dessert. Nice Sunday!

We dine there about once a month. It is very comfortable. The wait staff know us and treat my 95 year old mother-in-law graciously. The food is very good....basic Italian with seafood specialties. It is a BYOB which makes the value excellent. I recommend it.

Bread was good, but downhill from there.
Poor excuse for Italian food. Server was nice but could not explain what ingredients were in the dish when asked.
I would never go back to this place.

Have always heard good things but finally had the opportunity to visit. The dining room was larger than I expected and we had no trouble getting a table even though Open Table makes it infinitely easier to request a reservation. Many varied selections and food was very good. Had the orichetta with broccoli rabe and sausage which was very flavorful! The bread makes the difference for me which was perfect! Looking forward to returning to try other dishes.

Went early after 6. Food came hot and on time. People started coming in when we were finishing our dinner. No problem at all. We used to go there quite a lot in the past but unfortunately we rarely have an opportunity ever since certain family members have either passed away or moved out of nj.

The lobster ravioli topped with shrimp and scallops was delicious, although the pasta for the ravioli was a bit too thick. The sauce with this meal was excellent. I started with cream of mushroom soup was fantastic and served very warm, without being too hot to eat. I had the lemon mousse tart for dessert, a wonderful treat.

We had a business celebration of a work anniversary. We were the only ones in the cafe, so that was both good & bad (why?). We enjoyed the hot and cold antipasti, and most of the people liked what they ordered. I was the only one who did not--too creamy and not indicated as such on the menu. I actually didn't eat any of it, but I did give it to someone else to take home.

Friendly service, but professional. Attentive. It is BYOB, so makes overall reasonable on price.
Food is very good. Lighting darker and candles on table - fairly romantic.

Were overbooked for Valentines Day a bit. Waited for table even though had reservation, but not so long I was agitated. Had a great meal and never thought about service - meaning they were on top of it even though they were very busy.

Favorite neighborhood place to dine. Food is always consistently awesome, large portions. Had the grilled octopus salad for the first time and it was excellent. Specials menu has good choice of fish and meat. Favorites of our include capellini positano (lots of crab meat) and chicken with shrimp capri. Friendly wait staff and owner makes the rounds to check in to make sure everything is to your liking. Always busy on a Saturday night! Love it!

Understaffed, not attentive.
Meager food portions and the presentation was dismal.
Food tasteless.
Cake for dessert was dry, possibly stale.

This was the consensus from all at our table.

We had a wonderful time with patient and efficient wait staff who did not rush us. The food was delicious as always. Owners could be a bit more relaxed and welcoming at times as they have many returning locals and we keep coming back because we do like it there. We have recommended Cafe Graziella to many friends and will continue to do so!
