Everything was perfection. We were introducing our friends to Garguilo's for the first time. They are world travelers, so I was hoping they would feel the same about the restaurant as I do. And they did. They loved it!!!!

The restaurant itself is very nice. It definitely has that authentic rustic Italian farmhouse feel to it. The food was… not great. It is great spot for a few glasses of wine with friends over appetizers but the entrees themselves felt very generic Italian catering hall. Love it or hate it i felt the dishes are a little over the top pricey for the “nothing I can’t get literally anywhere else in Jersey” quality. Granted, a little bit of that is baked into the name and reputation and a little more of it is because of locale but I was hoping for a hidden gem. The atmosphere delivered, the food however, did not. Service was alright; prompt, but messed up orders twice. Everybody has an off day so it’s excusable in my mind. Very apologetic and attentive. Manager came to check on the table, but the visit felt a bit forced to justify having to fire cook a steak from scratch the server didn’t bother to ring in.

I passed this place a while ago and tucked it in my mind to try it. The whole look from the outside just drew me in. An early 20th century house now restaurant. Flower boxes on the windows; just looked so very inviting.
The entire experience was 5 star. From the friendly valet parking, the interior (we sat upstairs), the friendly and attentive service - and the FOOD. Everything was beyond! The bread, the rice balls, the baked clams, the chicken parm, the pork chop.
This is my new favorite restaurant!!!!

This restaurant was such a pleasant experience. The food was excellent and the service just as great.
The owner makes a point to come over to the table, which is such a nice experience.
The server extremely helpful with our dietary restrictions and we enjoyed the meal down to the delicious Italian cheesecake

We will definitely be back again

Was a very pleasant evening, everything well above average. No real issue, just a small notch below 5 star. I would give it a 4.5 if I could. Definitely worth a return visit.

We both had the lobster in white wine sauce that was served in a big silver tray like dish... very impressive! Most of the it was outstanding! The lobster, scallops, clams and mussels were amazing as was the linguine that's cooked perfectly! Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Had a good experience to start, waitress was lovey and outdoor seating was great….but toward the end of the meal, after we payed and were about to leave, we were approached by someone that worked there. Didn’t even ask how our meal was but went right to telling us that in a few minutes we had to wrap up and leave Bc they needed the table. It was evident by the state of our table we were about to leave too. And Mind you, there were two other open tables. This was after we spent over $250 for four people (didn’t even have alcohol) and on top of them charging us for the wrong meal (lobster tail was order and they sent and charged us for the full lobster) as well as for every single coke one of the individuals at our table drank - including the one she accidentally spilled. Needless to say, we will not be returning.

We parked our car in an available spot behind the restaurant and as we were walking to the entrance to the restaurant the valet rushed up to us and told us we had to take a ticket and surrender our key to him. He was no where in sight when we parked. When we came out our car was moved across the street, why we don’t know. Not a good system.
We requested inside and were seated immediately. The noise level was deafening. I asked that the music be turned down. We could barely hear conversation wit h our friends. Our waiter was good. Service was good by him. There was a young girl that hovered around us that was all too eager to remove plates. Wait till we are ALL finished.
The food was just ok. Expensive pasta, not even homemade.
Needless to say we will not return.

Food is delicious- SMALL PORTIONS. Side dish of broccoli is extra & fit on my SMALL plate & cost $15 MORE! Waiter was very nice & apologized a million times for not being able to get our drinks or dinners out in a timely manner. 4 other tables got up & walked out. I’ve been there once before-before covid & service or lack of, was the same. I believe in 2nd chances.
We weren’t looking for anything for free- we had already paid bill & we’re on way out. When my husband told the owner last time we came it was the same slow or “lack of” service the owner told him GOOD- DONT COME BACK. OWNER was around & VERY AWARE of the bad service & sat at his own table eating, ignoring everything that was going on- I would never give any business a bad review, however anyone reading reviews to choose a good night out should be warned. Like I said, food was delicious but that’s all the positive I have for this place.

We had seafood dishes and the calamari, scallops, and shrimp were cooked to perfection. The dishes were absolutely delicious. The portions were gigantic. We noticed most people had leftovers to take home. Everyone was extremely courteous and gave just the right amount of attention. We will definitely be back!
