Lunello's NEVER disappoints. By far one of the best restaurants in northern NJ! Looking forward to our next dining experience there.

Upscale restaurant with very good service and great food. The waiter recites about 15 specials (by memory). Afterwards he gives you a hard copy of the specials with the prices . I liked that. I chose one of the special appetizers. Seafood Salad. Real good. Reminded me of the salad my grandma made when I was a kid. I ordered another special for dinner. Veal Valdostana. It was incredible. A little pricey but worth it. I will go again and would recommend to others.

Lunellos never disappoints! The appetizers which included burrata, caeser salad, scallops and calamari were delish! The branzino was cooked perfectly and the bread putting was a perfect finish!

TOO MANY SPECIALS!!!
There must have been 20 items on the specials list. The server even admitted that these specials were there almost everyday. Service was okay, disorganized at times. We noticed a crowded bar and people waiting to be seated, but many empty tables. We were glad we came before the rush.

All the reviews were spot on. Service is great. Layout is great. Food is spectacular. The specials are the best. Listen and try something new. You can’t go wrong. Want something a little extra. Ask. They are always willing to please. I’d eat here every chance I had. Very very good restaurant.

Best restaurant in New Jersey. Consistently delicious food prepared to perfection. Amazing fish selection that is flown in daily. Great meats and pastas. Specials are always on point. You will not be disappointed. Priced accordingly, but worth every penny.

Been going to Lunellos for many years and the food has always been very very good. My biggest pet peeve is they should have a print out of the specials since there are always so many which is a great thing. But with the waiters accents its sometimes hard to understand everything they are offering. This last visit seemed to be an off night for our servers.

I have been here at least 5 times and the food is always good and this time was no different. I would say it was a Tuesday night and the service was a bit off. Still good, but they never brought us water until my date was choking and I flagged someone down. Then, I asked for a bottle of sparkling and received tap! Overall, it's always good, but the service slipped this night in a few respects not just the water.

Our servers, Oscar and Mario were outstanding as usual. The fact that LuNello has such an excellent team of servers with many years of experience is a credit to this establishment. The exemplary customer service is also the perfect balance to the great food that is prepared. We have been customers for many years and have never been disappointed.

Our many thanks to Juan, Mario, Oscar and the rest of the service team for always providing friendly, efficient and professional efforts.

Great restaurant. Food was fabulous. The specials are creative and delicious while the menu contains the standards. We chose salads and entrees from the specials and were very happy with our selections. The special prices were also in range with the regular menu. Just a bit higher. One thing I would change is that I would like a written list of specials. There were so many. They were hard to remember. I actually forgot what I wanted to order until I heard the maitre D saying specials at the next table. But great restaurant will definately be back.
