                                                  We ate outside in the garden area. Lovely, and our lunch entrees were wonderful. I had the black fettuccine with shrimp, which was fabulous. My friend had the ravioli with spinach, and she loved it. We both cleaned our plates! We decided to have dessert, and both of us had chocolate mousse cake, which was a chocolate lovers dream. Highly recommend La Pergola.

                                                  Went to celebrate a bday and we didn’t realize you had to bring your own alcohol but a liquor store is down the block. So we were told. The food was really good but I wish the chicken parm was served on a plate instead of a cutting board. They are constantly watching over us and extra attentive. We were very appreciative. They should also maybe can add in there menu more traditional Italian dishes. We ordered out of their menu. We told one of the waiters in was my daughter’s bday but he missed understood and brought the dessert with out the candle or the traditional singing. I mentioned it to another waiter and he apologized and brought her another dessert w a candle at no charge.

                                                  Had an early dinner while a quick break from our kids. Restaurant was busy but not crazy. Service was great, and food came quickly but didn’t feel rushed. Would definitely recommend!

                                                  Arugula salad was fresh and tasty. The veal Milanese didn’t have much flavor, as well as the gnocchi dish.

                                                  I always like coming here because of how accommodating the kitchen is with special food requests. Makes the experience comfortable and enjoyable. The food is always delish and the ambience is cozy and pretty (I always sit outside, usually in the garden, but this particular lunch we were sat on the covered patio directly behind the restaurant). For lunch this time I ordered the Pergola salad (one of my faves) and they kindly made me a plate of sauteed shitake mushrooms and spinach & garlic at my request - both were flavorful and definitely hit the spot! I recommend La Pergola whenever friends ask for a restaurant with outdoor space or just a restaurant in Millburn that will satisfy even the most discerning of foodies. Oh, and it's BYOB so can't go wrong with that!

                                                  Food was fantastic. Service was fabulous. However they need to adjust the way they take reservations. Very confusing for the people who work there. Everything else was great. Even made reservations for Mother’s Day

                                                  Simply the best Italian food we've ever had. Every single thing is exquisite and special, from the before-meal bread to the incredible entrees. The mezzaluna ravioli and the chicken parm specials are to die for. The arugula/pear salad and burrata are so delicious and perfectly portioned. The vanilla bean panne cotta, served in a martini glass, was the best dessert we've had anywhere in town. We can't recommend this place enough.

                                                  Service could have been better as you didn’t hire enough servers and set up personnel. Asking for salt and pepper was a problem. They should be a part of the table set-up. Bread should come quickly instead of asking for it. Your people are good. Management has to reassess its issues whereby owner has no need to assist servers. I am not a fire marshal, however internal tables are too close which could cause havoc it a fire were to occur. Your call ! You were booked to over capacity. Turn the tables quickly to lessen time for those to be seated. In addition, turning tables quickly equates to higher profits. I hope remarks are helpful.

                                                  Easter luncheon could not have been better!! We were warmly welcomed and seated at the center of the dining room which is never my preference, but our waiter and staff were so wonderful and accommodating and anticipated our every need. The food was excellent and we never felt rushed even thought it was a holiday. We will definitely be back!!!

                                                  This has been a favorite restaurant for years! Excellent service, beautiful dining room (and garden), well spaced tables, and amazingly good food. The arugula salad is fabulous. The soups are wonderful. The mussels, eggplant lasagna and homemade pastas are all terrific…we love the butternut squash ravioli!
