The food as usual was outstanding. The Mr. T’s pizza a maguerite pizza with eggplant was cooked and tasted great. Next was the Patricia’s salad that was large enough for my wife and I to share and the argula was tasty. My pappadelle bolognese was flavorful with a killer sauce. My wife’s Sunday sauce braziole was also incredible. Dessert was a pistachio Oreo Tartufo and was a perfect ending to the meal. Portions were big and enough to take home for a second meal. We have been here 4-5 times over the last 2 months and I now believe we must go at least once per week since this place is that good. Owner is a gem as well, very friendly and comes around to say hello and to make sure everything is perfect.

The food and wait staff were all very good! It gets a little crowded inside, but the noise doesn’t detract from your own conversations. All the food came out promptly, was hot, and all reasonably priced.

A lady next to us was being incredibly picky about her food (she even asked for brand new olive oil for her bread) She claimed she had sooooo many allergies but then was giving the waitress a hard time about how long it was taking. The waitress explained the kitchen had to clean off specific areas and pots/pans for her and make everything from scratch to make sure it wasn’t contaminated. The lady made some snide comment about it not taking her this long to cook for herself and waitress was great about it!

Patricias of Holmdel is simply the BEST Italian restaurant around! Frank is attentive to his patrons. The food is amazing. We love the ambiance and you can’t beat a BYOB! We have a weekly standing reservation. It’s our favorite!

Food was very good and portion size nice. Very noisy. Our waitress was great but her support, bus person, water person, runners had no idea who ordered what at the table. Runner did not know what one of the dishes was that he brought out. Very crowded. For the prices they charge food could have been better and service should have definitely been better. Not as good as the hype. Probably will not go back.

The restaurant did not live up to expectations. Wait staff seemed a little is disorganized. Ordered linguini as pasta and got spaghetti. Sauce was just average. Ordered veal marsala and veal was good but sauce was very heavy. Overall decent italian food but not worth the price. Not sure how they have attracted the crowds they get. Food at Carabas was just as good before it closed and mush cheaper.

There food is delicious and they also have very good olive oil to use on the bread!!! They also make good pizza's !!! I hope you get to try this place and I know that you would be back!!!

Our first visit as it's difficult to get a reservation for weekend. It's in a strip mall a bit hidden from view. I guess this makes it a hidden gem.
We had a fig and goat cheese pizza with arugula to start. Very tasty, my personal thought is it didn't require the extra touch of balsamic on top as it made it a bit too sweet and you lost the flavor of the goat cheese somewhat. Solid crust and will have to try some more options next go around. Chicken Scarp authentic and on the bone (Only way to have it) was quite good, chicken a bit well done but very tasty dish overall. Stuffed flounder (special I believe not on regular menu) was wonderful. The fish was cooked perfectly and a generous portion.
WE are coming back

Dined here for our wedding anniversary. Great ambience. Food was tasty and great value for money. My husband and I are vegetarians, we still had plenty of options to chose from. Our waiter was great to make us recommendations. Taste was excellent, paired with our BYOB Napa valley wine. Perfect choice for a perfect occasion. Also, the tiramisu was on the House- as our anniversary gift.

First time there w best friends for get together. Had lived in area for many years and found Patricia's on open table w great reviews. Reviews were on the money. It was busy on a wed night. Staff was attentive. Food excellent. We had halibut, sausage broccoli rabe and short ribs - margarite pizza as part of our appetizers. Owners frank n Lenny stopped by a few times to make sure everything was going well. Lenny had been at pilazzo in red bank which I had visited many times. It's a BYO so grab a nice bottle of wine and go there. You won't be disappointed

Staff was excellent. Frank, manager on duty (owner) came over to our table to insure all was going well. Frank found out we just got back from Aruba (he was going this week) & we had a very nice conversation. My wife & I both had Pasta dishes which were outstanding. It was my wife's birthday so the staff brought out a piece of cheesecake (on the house) & sang happy birthday.
We will be back , a definite for future events.

Everything from the appetizers to dessert was outstanding. Our server, Mike, got the hint that it was my wife’s birthday, and threw in the dessert for free (the mini zeppole with Cannoli cream dip - which was off the charts!!). Great food, great service. An indisputable 10 in my book
