    Absolutely fantastic! Loved the food, ambiance, and live singer on Friday and Saturday nights which adds to it all! What a great night out! We will make that a regular of ours. You will not be disappointed. It was great!

    Pavesi is in close walking distance to the MPAC Theater! The atmosphere was pleasant. The waitress and busboy were attentive to our needs. Very polite owner who seemed to care about his guests. The food was very good! Their prices were reasonable for what we ordered for dinner. They seemed in line with going out to a Diner to eat, a couple of $$ more. Hey it's Morristown! It's a bring your own bottle establishment. I remember saying to my wife, that I'd come back here again. Parking is close by at the Dehart Parking Garage. Take a chance, try it and see for yourselves!

    Dinner was fantastic, it was a busy night which is a great recommendation in itself. But our table was so close to other and the singer, it was hard to hear one another. Not to be discouraged, we will always come back for yet another great dinner out.

    The staff had a lot to deal with on Christmas Eve and I thought they did an excellent job. Appetizers, main course and the desserts were very good to excellent. And the staff did not rush us. Overall a very enjoyable evening.

    Festive ambience for Christmas Eve BUT I was served a dish that I did not order (scallops instead of red snapper). Major goof! I should have pointed this out to the server but I didn't-- just ate the scallops.

    Everything from being greeted at the door made for a perfect dining experience. Attentive service staff, delicious food and presentation. We didn’t feel rushed to leave even though it was the Holiday season. Able to complete our dessert and coffee without any problem. All in all a wonderful night.

    Truly an unpleasant experience. The wait staff was unfriendly & unwelcoming - made me feel as if I did not belong there and had no business being in there as if they did not want to serve me. I spoke to the owner about it - it was that bad. I will not be returning. There are an unbelievable amount of really, really good Italian restaurants in the state of NJ - it would behoove them to be mindful of that.

    The food and service were great but I made the mistake of not asking the price of my meal from the "specials" list. Had I known my piece of mahi was going to be $45.00 I would have ordered the Lasagna for $22.00! The meal was not a good value.

    Scallop and Lobster Risotto was overcooked. Scallops were rubbery and dry; risotto was sticky. At $45, not worth the price. We won’t be returning!

    Our party sat outside and enjoyed the entertainment on a beautiful and unseasonably warm fall night. The food was amazing, our server was pleasant and management accommodating. We had a late dinner and took a short walk to the MPAC theatre for a comedy show. And of course the city of Morristown never disappoints. We will return to Pavesi!

    Food was good, but $45 for a brazino special? Also, don’t like how all these restaurants are adding surcharge to the bill for credit cards. That’s the cost of doing business. Won’t rush back there before a concert next time, too many other options.

    Met our friends at this restaurant, I remembered this place from years ago when I worked in Morristown. They have given it a lovely facelift since, but the food is still great and at a reasonable price. The staff is welcoming and friendly. I’m planning to return sometime in the very near future. Good job Pavisi, love what you’ve done to the place The only downside is the parking, make sure you leave yourself about 10-20 minutes to find a spot

    The only issue we had was that all of the tables for 2 people are on top of each other. Luckily we went early enough that a couple was not seated next to us until we were having dessert. And once the singer started playing, she was louder than we felt necessary in such an intimate setting. Excellent food and service keep us going back.

    Overall great restaurant. The food was very good, and the portion size allowed for a little take-home. We didn't like our table at first, but were moved to a more suitable location. The service was very good as well. The live music (a man singing Frank Sinatra) was outstanding. The location is very lively, although the parking can be a bit challenging. Overall, would definitely recommend.

    Spectacular, as always! My husband and I love coming here for so many reasons - from the amazing way the owner and staff greets us each time, to the beautiful outdoor seating area, to the music on the weekends, and of course! The food, which is always fresh and not expensive! Highly recommend. The last time we were here on a beautiful evening with the Sinatra style crooner outside, people were stopping and dancing on the sidewalks - everyone walking by with smiles on their faces.

    We spent a lovely evening with friends at Pavesi. Specials were clearly explained with prices given upon request. The calamari appetizer was lightly breaded and tasty. The broccoli rabe and sausage with hot peppers was excellent. My Zuppa di Pesce entree was amply proportioned with mussels, clams, salmon and calamari over pasta in a delicious white sauce. Our wine, it’s a BYO, was opened properly and water glasses refilled as needed. It’s a very pretty restaurant and we will return again
