Delicious and big portions. Definite doggie bag so you get to enjoy 2x’s
Would most certainly frequent if we lived in the area. Hard to choose there are so many tempting menu items

This was a repeat visit and we love the food. I was disappointed that they did not have the paste to make the linguine Nero. However I got the lobster ravioli special which was delicious

The food and service are sensational and that's the only reason I can go once in a great while. I wish I could go more but it is too expensive for me, and now that they are expanding I'm afraid they're going to raise their prices making it less likely that I would be able to dine there again. The fact that most people can afford it will keep it going on to being the best restaurant in town!

Dinner on a Sunday night, restaurant was crowded at 7 pm and the room gets noisy. Food was excellent, service good, only critiques are the ambiance which is lacking (they should really do something more with their windows - having a store sign glaring in while you're dining is not cool. We have dined at many excellent strip mall restaurants where you forget where you are once you enter. Not here!) and the steep prices. $68 for 2 pasta entrees, tax and tip.

Very convenient. Been going there for about 4 years. Never again
Noisy. Food very bad
Zucchini blossoms like fried dough balls covering globs of ricotta .Blossoms very meager.Entire dish overpriced at $18 and tasteless
Chopped salad no seasoning whatsoever. Totally bland bowl of chopped lettuce with tomatoes,etc Awful
Chicken scarpiello barely cooked. Sausage bland. Potates and peppers okay
Waitress fine. At least 8-10 teenage boys as servers,water,butter deliverers totally clueless
Really shockedthat this place has clearly deteriorated over the past year
We will not be back and will deter anyone who asks from going there

From start to finish we had a wonderful meal. Our server Chelsea was excellent. For appetizers we had the fig,goat cheese & arugula pizza drizzled with a balsamic reduction... Excellent... We also wanted to split a pasta dish, Rigatoni shrimp & spinach in a spicy sauce.. Chelsea suggested it as a separate course so as not to crowd the table.. Our entree’s were Shrimp scampifor my wife & I had the Veal Chop.. The shrimp were large & cooked perfectly.. My Veal chop was top shelf, as tender as butter, cooked just as I had asked, medium rare, it was in a spicy pepper sauce with grilled Brussels sprouts.., I might as for spinach as a substitute next time.. I’m not a Sprouts fan..😊
Overall it was an Excellent experience , Lenny the Executive Chef is one of the best Chefs in the area..

I dine at Patricia's several times each month. It's my go-to favorite place and I have introduced this restaurant to countless people and they have all been very happy. I have catered from here as well as hosted several large parties at the restaurant. Everything I have eaten there is top notch and I walk away very satisfied with the exception of their pasta carbonara. I've ordered it twice when it's been on the specials menu and I have been disappointed both times. The first time it was very dry and the second time it was dry and tasteless. I won't order it again. I can't expect a restaurant to be flawless every time but twice with the same dish is one I won't reorder again as I can make it better at home. I will however return to Patricia's without hesitation and will always highly recommend it!

We love this place. My pasta was slightly underdone (stuffed mushroom pockets/pasta in cream sauce), also was lukewarm with some bites being cold. Guessing the kitchen should have boiled them for two minutes more. Nonetheless, the dish was very good, we chose not to mention the issue to the waiter. Service was great, we like this restaurant and will go back. Nice for special occasions and it was my wife's birthday, they comped her dessert. Very nice.

Good attentive service.. starting with the good.. appetizers (fried calamari was good) not quite enough flavor but still fresh and light. The mussels in white sauce was very good and my wife’s fish special (red snapper) was really good.. nicely cooked and flavorful, large portion too.

The not so good.. bread was disappointing and my chicken Marsala was bland and a bit chewy.

Overall good but not great.

Bread wasn’t good,kinda of like stalish Italian bread..

Our experience overall was a fabulous won the food from appetizers to dessert was absolutely phenomenal! However before going one does need to realize that it’s a BYOB although they will sell you New Jersey wines. Seems like they had to have some renovations so we were bothered by any Enormous amount of fruit flies..The owner assured us that it was because they had a problem with their soda lines and it is a temporary situation. I truly wish that we lived closer as this might be our favorite spot!

The food is very good at Patricia’s but I think they are pricey. We paid $30.00 for a veal parmigiana dinner which consists of two pieces of veal and a side of pasta. You get bread on the table but you do not get a salad with your meal. It’s a byob restaurant which is nice. The waiters and waitresses are excellent and very friendly. Great for a special occasion!
