    Another great meal. Last night we had the chicken caprice which was out of this world. We also had the chili calamari and clams casino both great as usual. Our waitress was very attentive and lovely. Can’t wait to comeback!

    A top Princeton restaurant for sure. The food has always been great with a varied menu to select from. The French Onion soup was a great starter, piping hot and tasty. The Butterfish, Veal St James and Pork Chop Scarpariello were all fantastic. The service was excellent. I can say in all honesty that Monica was the best waitress I've had in years. Attentive, professional and personable from start to finish. A great dining experience, not to mention a perfectly poured Guinness.

    Last night my wife and I had an absolutely incredible meal. We started with Jersey Tomato salad with Avocado and Mozzarella and an order of Clams Casino both were delicious. I had Vodka Rigatoni as my meal and it is wonderful. The best in the area for sure. My wife had Chicken Roma she raves about it. The portion was large so we were able to bring half home. Dawn our server suggested adding my leftover Vodka sauce on to the chicken. Today I reheated it and it was amazing still. Service as usual was excellent and very attentive. Drinks were also great. Overall this place is hard to beat. Well worth it!

    Quick service and food delivery were highlights of the evening, followed by the delights of a house specialty pork chop creation. Delicious. The lengthy menu still has many items for me to try, and I'm looking forward to that.

    I had the gyro and my friend had the Manchego salad. Both were delicious but mine had a sauce substitution due to supply issues. When I asked about it, they were very accommodating in making it up to me. Service was excellent— the waiter checked on us frequently and refilled our glasses and the bartender explained the mixup. We will definitely be back again!
