    Cafe Navona is a special restaurant. From Marco’s welcome you are made to feel as if you’re family and this is a special gathering. The food is fantastic. There is a broad menu, and always several specials to entice you. The service is professional, yet friendly. There is great pride of the house, and once you’re done this will all be clear. Mangiare e fatta grossa!

    This was a first time visit for us as we are new to the area. The service from the moment we walked in until we left was great! The table came with bread and bruschetta on the table which was amazing. All of our menu choices were delicious except the lasagna which was over cooked and a bit dry.

    It is amazing but Navona keeps getting better and better. Also I keep finding new favorite dishes. But I have a simple pleasure, my wife and I sit down with a drink. Have some amazing thin slices garlic bread. Then we order the house salad. I get is with anchovies. This time I had NJs best Chicken Parmigiana. Writing this is making me hungry. I think I will repeat this Saturday night. Thanks Marco Your friend Mark

    Food, atmosphere and overall experience was great. The manager or owner welcomed us right when we walked in. I was surprised that they had such a nice bar area as well as a dining area. My boyfriend got the veal and I got the gnocchi VERY good. outstanding. The wine list was nice too, we got a bottle of wine. Wish they had more dessert options but other than that it was great. We will be back for sure!

    Business Lunch on Veterans Day. It was my first time there, I chose the restaurant for its location. Facility was nice, right on Rt 46 in NJ, easy to find. Wait staff was friendly and efficient, however it was the first day for our waitress and she failed to tell me that the Arugula Salad I ordered as an appetizer, was exactly the same as the salad that came on my Entre. Small mistake but I wish I had known, I would have tried something else.
