We celebrated my daughter’s “16th” birthday and it was memorable! I can’t believe how well prepared each course was and how large the servings were! Our server was the best and totally attentive and detail oriented. Our glasses were never empty.

During my recent visit to Steak 48, I had an exceptional dining experience that left me thoroughly impressed. From the moment I walked in, the service was top-notch. The staff was attentive, friendly, and ensured that every aspect of our meal was perfect. Their knowledge of the menu and recommendations were spot-on, making our dining experience even more enjoyable. As for the food, it was nothing short of spectacular. The steaks were cooked to perfection, with a mouthwatering blend of flavors that truly showcased the quality of the meat. Each bite was tender and juicy, with a perfect sear on the outside. The side dishes complemented the main course wonderfully, adding a delightful variety of tastes and textures to the meal. Overall, Steak 48 delivered an outstanding culinary experience with both excellent service and delectable food. I highly recommend it for anyone looking to indulge in a top-tier steakhouse experience.

About the restaurant
We're proud to be an award-winning establishment, having received the Top 50 Pizza for 2024 in US.

Pizza Baby East is the full-service Roman Café and Wine Bar, offering a selection of locally sourced mozzarella, antipasto, a rotating special, and our signature 12" Americana-style pizza inspired by the Eternal City. Everything is baked in-house, meticulously sourced, and clean label!

Located in the Elizabeth neighborhood, we serve pizza by the slice in a rectangular hand-held fashion, using our signature housemade focaccia. If you haven't been to Rome, our pizzas are reminiscent of street-style pizza al taglio.

So glad we made a reservation for a Saturday night at the East location. The service was good and the food was great. You have to try the Roman crust! We had the house pie and Roman style. Started with the Ricotta appetizer that was delicious! Recommending this as a must do, Excited to try the West location as well since the menu is slightly different.

We split a Caesar salad and had the scallops and angus meatloaf for entrees. Everything was outstanding! The service was outstanding as well. It was our first time and we’ll definitely go back.

Very noisy when we were seated because we were next to a group of 6 who were very loud. Unfortunately, the restaurant doesn’t really have any control of that, but it is still one area where I have to give lower points. Our waitress, Juliet, was wonderful!

Primo Prime was exactly what we needed on a Sunday evening: Excellent food- I had the red snapper special and my husband the lamb chops. Friendly, professional service- Tommie and Amber were helpful, busy, friendly, and pros at their job Ambience was perfect… a few groups enjoying their meals too but respectful of the lovely atmosphere. We.Will.Be.Back.
