We were very disappointed in this restaurant-food was outstanding, but the service was extremely slow. I would like to say that our waiter was very friendly but it appeared that there were only two in waitstaff with owners filling in. We waited and waited for someone to take our order and finally someone came over. The time in between courses was lengthy. My husband ordered mushroom appetizer that never came(it was not on the bill.) It is such a shame, since the food was absolutely delicious! We realize covid has hit the industry very hard, but with so many other choices in Bergen County, this would not be our first choice.

Some good items. Some really bad. Fried mozzarella sticks were just breading. The cheese was all melted out. Non-existing. Vanilla gelato was 70% ice. They have the nerve to add almost 4% for credit card. We won’t be back.

The food is good (shrimp parm; veal saltimbocca) but questionable cleanliness: water glass had floating particles, wine glass has lipstick on rim; tabletop had crumbs. Bread came long after meal was served - after 2nd request.
Disappointed- I’ve had better experiences here.

Great service and wonderful home cooked food made to your liking. I had lamb chops and sautéed spinach it was delicious. Loved the new italian food deli when you walk in.
The fried calamari was one of the best I’ve ever had light and crispy. We will be back and love that it’s byob !!!

Went out of the way to go here wanting to have dinner with pizza as an appetizer. We were told that they would not serve pizza in the dining room as they have never done before and would not do it now. We were the ONLY people there! I commented to the rude waitress that the reason they had no customers was due to their attitude. It's a pizzeria that also serves other food. How do you not let people eat there when you have seating?? And vinyl booths to boot. We left and went elsewhere.

Best Gluten Free pizza and the specials were unbelievable. Overall a 9.5/10..... I felt rushed a touch but totally understand that you want to seat as many people in a night. I highly recommend reservations.

I was disappointed with the very long delay for dishes to arrive due to mass amounts of delivery orders going out. Diners eating in should take priority. Waited no less than an hour for our apps to arrive and another hour for main dishes. In all we were there for 3 hours. Way too long

The food was outstanding! Every dish was delicious. They serve zucchini noodles if one so desired. I was thrilled as I had my seafood over the zucchini noodles and it was perfect! It is a BYOB. Our waitress was wonderfully patient. We are a group of friends that couldn’t stop talking long enough to look at the menus. She patiently waited and our service was flawless. This is not the first time I have eaten here and the food never disappoints. Will be back.

Loved this charming restaurant where our waiter was wonderful and very attentive to my allergies (onion and garlic--yikes!) and the owner was charming and just lovely. We will return (and hopefully sit a less "traffic-y" table). The food was delicious. We were very impressed. Worth the 30 minute ride for sure.

Sicilian Sun has become one of our most favorite places to go. The food and service is consistently so good that it’s now our #1 place to go on weekends. It’s a BYO so don’t forget to bring a bottle! Enjoy! 🍷

Great service from the waiter. I appreciated the host checking in on us and telling us a little about the place. The food was good Italian fare. We were in the pizza parlor section which was classically decorated and a good space for our family (adults and child). We’ll definitely go back.

had a reservation on saturday , for 3 people. we were seated close to time, but there was a very large party and every table was full at 7pm,
I am sure they were short a waiter or 2 because the ones that were working, got slammed.
My order was forgotten, and when it came it was not what I had ordered.
I had also indicated on the reservation form that it was a birthday,
also told the waiter.
Another table received birthday greetings but not us.
I have been to Sicilian sun many times and will continue to do so.
Everyone can have a bad night.

The food was delicious but the service was god awful. I had to ask for a waiter 3 times. The host ended up taking our order after 40 minutes of waiting. Every time I needed something I had to get up and find a random worker because we had no clear waiter
