La Cambusa is an upscale casual southern Italian restaurant with an emphasis on quality ingredients and precision cooking. Our menu draws inspiration from Italy's Amalfi Coast region, featuring a plethora of handmade pasta, fresh seafood dishes, garden ripe vegetables and mouthwatering homemade desserts.
The ambiance at La Cambusa is elegant, yet comfortable and inviting. We are a BYO restuarant with a spacious bar where guests can eat and enjoy their bottle of wine, or one of our zero proof libations made from fresh fruits and herbs. We have rooms available for private events and provide off premise catering as well, and take out is always available.

Chef Nino’s dishes are first class. Sautéed Halibut in clam broth was perfection. He hales from Positano and creates meals that are worthy of his Italian upbringing. Everything is fresh and real.

I was delighted that La Cambusa as a new restaurant in Wyckoff had the same quality experience I remember from when it was in Fair Lawn in the 1990’s ! The veal was tender , the calamari crispy , and the chocolate cake moist and decadent . I came home and was already trying to make plans for another dinner there …hoping they open for lunch soon too! it’s my now favorite restaurant near my Fardale home!!

I joined friends for dinner at La Cabusa two weeks prior to the most recent occasion. I was only recently aware that they had taken the space of another restaurant that was very forgettable. The menu was eye-catching with the upscale presentation of fish, beef, pork and pastas. The shared antipasto was notably fresh! They filleted my wife's dish right at the table (a lost art.) My meal of lobster,shrimp and scallops was beyond perfect. Moist, flavorful and filling. I could have passed on the antipasto. I had to bring a close friend and family to prove my enthusiastic tale of that first meal.

First time for us in their new location and so happy to have La Cambusa back. It was nice to see Nino walk around and chat with the patrons. Food is still delicious.
Service was wonderful, efficient and they didn't rush us. Only complaint is that it's a little noisy in the dining room, hard to hear when you're talking. But that won't stop us from going back.

We had the polenta appetizer and I had the black squid ink linguini with shrimp which were both excellent. The service is outstanding.

The only negative is it is way too loud, they need to get sound dampening ceiling tiles or even consider some area carpets (I know carpets in a restaurant aren't great either) to dampen the noise level. I could never dine here with my elderly parents as they simply would not be able to hear any conversations.

I missed the traditional Italian delicious dishes I’ve had in the previous location such as : eggplant roletini, chicken parmigiana but had the incredible Caesar salad. Perfection.
I love the tomato sauce previously but didn’t see much on the new menu.
What we had was very good though. The desserts were amazing!

The food was great. Our waitress had many tables and therefore was not overly attentive to us. I was disappointed that when I booked the table it did not state that it was a BYOB and therefore we did not bring any wine with us.

Got seated right away. Wait staff attentive and friendly. Deliciously fresh and flavorful olive oil for the bread. Arugula salad was fresh and tasty. Pasta dish was well made. Branzino.was perfectly cooked and fresh and flaky. One draw back was the noise level despite the dining area having 6-8 tables when we were there from 8-9p
