    We must have picked the wrong time--the night before Mother's Day--to go to La Pergola for the first time. We had an awful experience. So many tables and people jammed into the space that the noise level made it nearly impossible for my party of four to hear one another. The waiters were literally running from the kitchen to the dining room carrying hot plates; some were in such a rush they kept hitting my jacket hung on the back of my chair. Two of us had to send our food back when it was served rare, not medium, as we’d requested. Though we asked for four separate checks (admittedly an unusual request) the waiter agreed to it before he took our orders, yet when a single bill was presented to us and we asked again for separate checks, the maître d’ refused and put up a fuss before relenting. La Pergola was a big disappointment, and I won’t be back.

    The food is absolutely incredible! Since it’s a BYO place, the tables are a little bit close together… But the staff absolutely does not rush you whatsoever. It’s a very relaxed dining experience and one that I can’t wait to repeat.

    My wife and I have eaten at La Puro several times and I’ve never been disappointed. This time we took friends and they were very impressed. The food is great and the service was even better. We generally go up for dinner and a show at the Paper Mill. We will be back for sure.

    Having talked about the genius of Driola & Agron to anyone who will listen to me, I finally had an opportunity to take a dear friend out for a belated birthday dinner. The food was exquisite as always & the Cassio e Pepe specifically prepared for Restaurant Week was sublime. My friend (who is really fussy about her food) was really impressed - we were there for 3 hours. Can’t wait to go back for more gastronomic perfection.

    I was happy to see that the dining room was full on a Saturday evening. Good for the restaurant. It was noisy but I could have an easy conversation with my guest. Service was reasonably attentive but we were provided dessert menus after appetizers and before our entrees were served. Perhaps that error was due to the fact that staff waits on multiple tables. We were on table 25. I/we have dined previously at La Pergola. The interior is a beautiful color, particularly in daylight. I would/will dine there again.
