Excellent food - a little disappointed with the Brussel sprout appetizer but the pasta is just about the best I have ever had. Desserts are an excellent way to top off a fantastic meal. The servers were young but very accommodating and were helpful but not obtrusive.

Staff was confused about menu. The chefs multi-course was interesting, a couple of very good and a couple of meh. Told was BYOB but then they had wine? Not sure I’d go back

Thank you for coming in and dining with us. Sorry about any confusion. We are a BYOB restaurant. In the state of New Jersey you can serve local Jersey wine at your establishment. We partner with Auburn Road Winery to help support the local businesses. It is also a good way for people to try their wine or if they forget we are BYOB they can get a bottle.

Best Italian I’ve had in some time, and I’ve been to some major cities recently. Chef is well schooled in the art of what makes food shine. Young staff but eager to please. I’ll be going back.

It was awesome to be out and celebrate my wife's birthday @ITA101. The food is excellent and so is the service. The bread is always fresh and makes it a battle not to eat too much bread. The braised short rib is excellent and their pasta is exquisite. I cannot say enough good things about ITA101.

This was our 4th time here so we thought we knew what to expect. Arrived on time at 6:00. Our waitress kept walking by us as if she didn’t know us until finally I flagged her down at 6:20 and asked for water and bread. 6:35 she comes back with said water and bread. 7:00 finally takes our meal order after she continuously kept walking by us when we were ready. We were here with friends and this was their first time and all we did was rave about it. Definitely not what we wanted to show them about ITA 101. By the time we finished this meal it was 9:00. I don’t know if she was just off today but it wasn’t what we normally expect from ITA 101

Brussel Sprout appetizer was so fresh and flavorful and paired perfectly with a dollop of ricotta cheese. Everyone enjoyed their homemade pasta dishes. My husband was even adventurous and tried the squid ink spicy seafood dish and loved it! We will definitely be going again and again.

ITA101 is an intimate Italian restaurant with authentic Italian dishes, as well as reimagined American favorites. The menu offers something for everyone - both adventurous and picky eaters will find something to love. The ambiance is very warm and intimate, and the attention to details was both noticeable and appreciated. While we didn’t try the seasonal menu, I appreciate the passion and detail that goes into providing fresh, locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. The food portions and menu are “European”: smaller portions, and multiple courses available. Having lived in Italy for a short while, I was accustomed to the smaller portions and multiple courses (appetizer course, salad, pasta, entree, desert and coffee). You can have a multi course meal, or get a full portion of pasta, or just a regular entree. So long as you understand the menu, you’ll have a wonderful experience.
