Overall expensive but excellent food. One misstep with the duck which was supposed to be crispy but not and orangey but not. Duck can be hard. Otherwise 2nd visit and plan to return. Ps bartenders great if you visit the bar.

The service was very good as were the drinks. My pasta was good, however the veal cutlet Milanese was bland and the accompanying arugula salad was soaked in dressing. Very disappointing!

outstanding appetizers---NJ oysters and corn custard. Brodetto main course was very good but sauce could have been more briney . Pasta bolognese was disappointing; the sauce was too acidic and metallic tasting and needed more meat. wines were very good selected from "by the glass" list

As visitors to New Brunswick, we selected Due Mari because of its excellent online reviews. It did not disappoint. Dinner was terrific, especially the tomato-mozzarella salad. An added bonus was jazz standards performed by an excellent female vocalist with guitar accompaniment--not so loud as to interfere with conversation. Our server friendly and accommodating, but not as knowledgeable as one expects in a restaurant of this quality.

We had been to Due Mari before and they always seat us at the same table in the back of the restaurant near the kitchen. I wonder why that is? Also this table is directly under an air conditioning vent and we were uncomfortably cold the entire dinner. One of the servers kept standing with their back to us, and waiting near our table as though it was the waiting area for servers. When the server did this the one nice view we had of the windows was blocked by their body. Our Anniversary dinner was disappointing.

We came to celebrate our anniversary. The food was good, as was the service. The only complaint we could make is that we were seated right next to a very large and noisy group of 8-10 people. Hard to have a romantic dinner for two when seated next to a large party. The cozier tables were unoccupied.

Great restaurant. Went for Sunday Brunch. Had chicken and waffles, but unfortunately the waffles were not crispy. The rest of our group (3 others) enjoyed their meal. Waiters were very attentive, but too much so. They were wonderful, just need to back off a bit.

We went this time to try the Restaurant Week menu and enjoyed the food very much. The crostata for dessert was well done. We also had excellent service from our server Tiare - just very pleasant and efficient without being overly attentive.

One of the finest restaurants in New Brunswick in our opinion so it is an occasion to dine here. We shared the bruschetta with strawberries and burrata to start..delicious! Next we shared an appetizer portion of black squid ink pasta with sausage and Manila clams... excellent! Pasta is a special here on Sunday.. reduced prices for appetizer and full portions. Dinners were the tuna and the scallops. Both very fresh and prepared perfectly with excellent sides. Red quinoa with the tuna and celery root purée fir the scallops. We splurged on dessert, sharing affogata, vanilla ice cream topped with hot coffee. We washed everything down with a bottle of Sancerre and could not have been happier!

A flawless meal as usual. There is no better restaurant in the New Brunswick area at any price. Atmosphere relaxed and friendly; food is of the highest quality and prepared with skill and delicacy. Never had a bad meal here or even an average one: always top shelf.

The whole experience was disappointing. We arrived early for a drink at the bar, bartender was very nice but couldn’t deliver the beer my husband wanted (they were out of it) he ordered a different one and the 2 nd one they couldn’t get because the gas wasn’t working. The menu was also disappointing very limited. We would never go back.

First time dining here prior to theater. Nice pre-fix option. Best beet appetizer! Mushroom soup was fabulous. Homemade pasta course with bolognese was outstanding. Scallops were very good, nice sauce and good size, tender!
Nice choice of wines by the glass, but a little pricey!
Easy walk to theater---better dining experience compared to the neighboring restaurants at State Theater!
