  • Charming
  • Neighborhood gem
  • Good for special occasions
Zagat review: After three decades, this dependable (if hard-to-find) Freehold Italian BYO maintains its old-world ways with a classic menu of quality items served by an excellent dining room team. The elegant decor lends it special-occasion status.

    Once again, dinner at our favorite spot in Freehold. Delicious appetizers and dinner special - stuffed pork chop. Ben, Franco and the wonderful staff were so attentive. Ended the evening with espresso.

    Our party of four was greeted and seated in a welcoming manner. We all opted for their summer midweek three-course menu. The choices and portion sizes were very excellent. We had a lovely dining experience at La Cipollina.

    As always food was excellent and service exemplary. We have been here numerous times and the great food and service keep us coming back. We brought our neighbors who were here for the first time and they raved about the experience. They are sure to become regular diners.

    I made a reservation at our favorite restaurant for my daughter’s birthday. She ordered a delicious beet salad that was so different and colorful. My husband ordered zupa di clams a white sauce and I ordered mussels - also delicious. Entrees - My husband had the stuffed pork chop special and my daughter and I had chicken Milanese- all generous portions and scrumptious. The staff sang Happy Birthday (I brought a Shivers ice cream cake) and we enjoyed our after dinner espresso.
