Beautiful place. Good ambience and playlist in the background. Food was very good. Next time I’ll remember to bring my own wine since it’s BYOB.

We loved San Marzano and we are happy that Panini Grill is just as good! We will be back again!

There was a party in the restaurant that took up most of the restaurant. It was loud, with people standing all over and children running wild. They ran out of calamari which was an ingredient in many of the things on the menu. Some of the food, the pizza came out cold. The restaurant should have been closed to the public with the number of people in the party if they couldn’t accommodate other customers. Poor planning on restaurant management.

Excellent dining experience for families or groups. A little loud for a date night on a Friday night but if you don't mind the volume, the food was excellent. Generous portions. Healthy options as well as classic Italian dishes and pizza. Friendly staff and great service. Definitely worth trying this new restaurant.

Good food, reasonably priced, but awful service. We were seated quickly at a table that was in plain sight for every waiter, but ignored for almost 15 minutes. We opened our own wine and had to get up and ask for glasses. Hopefully the
service improves, because the food was good.

Delicious food great bread.
Our server was very accommodating but she needed to space out the appetizer and the main meal better. Food came almost immediately after we finished the appetizer which was the negative to the entire meal.

We have been staying in the Marlboro NJ area for the summer, earlier in the summer we visited the restaurant which is not directly on main restaurant strip
In Freehold. What a find this place was, my wife and I can’t understand why this place isn’t as busy as the strip places. Please just try this place once and
You will not be disappointed. Over the last 2 months been there 5 times and sharing the experience with family and friends with no issues. My go to appetizer
Is the Artichoke Francese. The entrees I loved was the Shrimp Oreganata, Mussels Cozzi and the Tuscany Salad were all delicious. I’m just hoping when I return
Next year that this place is still open. Good luck Panini Grill ! Like the saying says “ TRY US AND YOU WILL LIKE US !

My husband and I loved this restaurant! It was our first time and we absolutely will return the next time we’re in the area. The food is extremely fresh and expertly prepared. It’s obvious the owners know how to run a restaurant. Their attention to detail with everything, right down to the extra heavy cream for my coffee was exceptional. We highly recommend the bolognese! Thanks for a great dinner!

Panini Grill should have carried over some really outstanding recipes from San Marzano, such as La Nonna and San Marzano pizzas, as well as Pompei Salad. There's a lot of competition in our area, especially for pizza. In that respect the former San Marzano was a standout, with only few other restaurants coming close. Glad the bread is the same and the service personnel, including Natasha and Anna Bella are terrific.

One of the hottest days of the Summer and PG was busy, definitely a testimony to the quality of food Pete and Sal provide. I had the calamari and eggplant pizza and wifey had the chicken rollatini. Both were delicious but our favorite was the cold antipasto appetizer. Looking forward to our next trip to this hiddden gem.

A good selection of menu choices. Tuesday and Wednesday they offer a Prix Fixed . Choice of appetizer and entree great deal. Had a Pork Chop which was too spicy for me but nice flavor. Waitress was terrific! Friendly and helpful. It was a Wednesday night and the place was empty. Hope they make it as I would like to go back

Good food, generous portions. We had a grilled octopus appetizer and a mommas salad. Both very good. Chicken parm, eggplant parm, panini and a shrimp orreganato dish. Everyone happy with their choices. And it’s BYOB. Good pricing nothing too crazy. Definitely will be back.

Food and service were excellent but noise level was so loud I couldn’t hear much of the conversation at my table. Perhaps better midweek than weekend.

Service was a little slow to start and they explained one server had to buy supplies.
Ordered our food and waited awhile for our salads. The food was brought out and I commented we hadn’t gotten our salads. Panini Grill serves salads with the meal unless you tell them otherwise. Bizarre as this is the only restaurant that doesn’t serve salads before the meal.
Food was absolutely delicious. On par or better than the prior establishment San Marzano.
Would definitely return but now know to ask for salads ahead of meal.
