Excellent service and great food. Fun atmosphere with a strolling accordion player. The staff was very attentive and we were no rushed at all. Definitely worth a visit.

We ordered "tuna carpaccio." It was nothing more than a salad and a few slivers of uncooked tuna. I advised the waiter that it was unsatisfactory and ordered a crabcake. My guest took a few bites of her tuna carpaccio and said that she would take it home. Of course, I was charged for both the tuna carpaccio AND the crabcake; total for my lunch alone was $48. The noise level was terrible. My guest had to move her seat close to me in order that we could talk to one another. Needless to say, we won't be coming back.

We've brought friends here several times for lunch on the patio and never been disappointed. Service is pleasant and professional. Our friends who were with us for the first time at this restaurant have always enjoyed the food and the setting.

Lamberti's is a long-time South Jersey landmark and it rarely disappoints. It was fabulous to sit on the veranda under tenting without masks.

My only somewhat negative comment is when the server learned that my friend and I were visiting for happy hour and did not intend to have dinner, he essentially stopped speaking to us and any semblance of friendliness. That was disappointing.

I have celebrated many a special occasion and enjoyed dozens of meals over the years. Not every visit will result in $$$$$ orders.

The burrata salad and octopus appetizers were really good. Our entree was very disappointing, I can’t recall the name but a seafood pasta dish in white wine sauce. It lacked flavor and the pasta wasn’t flavorful. The service was super slow. Also, not a fan of all men wait staff. Don’t support places where this is still the case. Very old fashioned and attracted an old crowd where sopranos may have been the favorite show. Will not be back.

First time indoors since March 2020.. It was wonderful! I wanted some place that offered great ambiance and food, located in Cherry Hill. I thought of Cafe Aldo Lamberti immediately, although I hadn't been there in a few years. It lived up to my memories and expectations. Tables were spaced. Atmosphere and ambiance were just right. The food choices, both specials, and off the menu were superb. I can't wait to go back.

The food, as always, was amazing. This is the only restaurant I would use for business lunches during covid and I have been here for business lunches at least once every month since January. For some reason, this time my party was seated in the bar area where the music was very loud. Coupled with the noisy diners next to us, it was a frustrating experience. The waiter was very attentive and had the music turned down twice (the second time after someone turned it up high again). I will be careful to be seated in the main room going forward however.

This is usually our favorite spot but last night was a little subpar. We asked for a bottle of wine we usually get and our waiter told me I had to find it in the menu and provide him the code. We sat right on time for our 745 reservation but did not get our meal until 915 with little explanation or apology, just that they were busy. By then waiters were in our area chatting and folding napkins probably getting ready to leave, little unprofessional. We asked for two regular coffees one decaf. When they came over they said two decaf one regular, I corrected them and they made it seem like they misspoke originally and just put the coffees down. Receipt showed two decaf too, couldn’t they have just gotten regular coffee instead of short cutting? Only upshot was food was delicious. Last thing to note was price was decidedly higher, steak now $50. I understand this is an industry wide issue. It’s nice to be busy, but attention to detail and experience lacked and with prices going up that is not what will bring people back again

This is one of our favorite restaurants. I live in the Valley Forge area and my friends live in Toms River so this is somewhat of a half way spot. We've been meeting here for years, once or twice a year, and have never been disappointed. Wonderful food, service and ambience. What more could you ask for!
