My husband and I decided to try out this restaurant and we are glad that we did. Fantastic food - I had Nona's Sauce and it was really delicious. My husband had a seafood angel hair pasta dish that he loved. The staff is friendly, professional and very helpful. It is a BYO so we enjoyed some wine and could... More

But the food was not very good. Pasta sauce and meatballs were over seasoned. Food was fair at best, we felt rushed and the acoustics make it hard to have general conversation.

This restaurant started in the "Burg" many years ago. I am very happy that it is here in Ewing now. As their reputation has proceeded them for many, many years now... Sal Deforte's does not disappoint! "Old school" Italian Mama cooking. The Marina sauce alone - is just that! On Sunday and sometimes as a "special" during another night... there... More

We took a visiting friend here for dinner and the place was a hit. It is BYOB and the food is delicious. I had Veal Jerusalem (sautéed with white wine, mushrooms and artichoke hearts) and the rest had Veal Francese (dipped in egg batter and sautéed in a lemon wine sauce) and a Shrimp with pasta special. Entrees come in... More

I should have used better judgement after reading some of the reviews about the quality of service at Sal Deforte's. My husband and I had been interested in trying this restaurant for awhile and found ourselves free on a Friday evening so we decided to go. We were greeted almost immediately and were seated during prime dinner hour quickly but... More

Consistently good Italian food. We love the atmosphere here. Food and service are great. I love the appetizers...stuffed zucchini was delish. Today I got chicken Victoria...it had a tender piece of chicken topped with fresh melted mozzarella, tomatoes and artichoke hearts. I got the vegetables and potatoes in lieu of pasta. They were grilled with rosemary. My littles got chicken... More

Good Italian food that came out of the Burg in Trenton years ago and keeps up its tradition. Food is great - service is good . Can be noisy when busy!

My wife and I recently went to this establishment for dinner. We have enjoyed dining at Sal DeForte's in the past. We both enjoyed our chicken parm dinners. We normally get pasta with chicken parm but we decided to get the potatoes and vegetables. We were very happy with our decision; the potatoes were good but the vegetables were excellent.... More

In Mercer county, it's hard to drive a mile without coming across an Italian restaurant or pizza place. With so many options to choose from, finding one that stands out is often a challenge. Last month I went to a graduation party at Sal Deforte's restaurant in the Marrazzo shopping center. The food was delicious and the owners were very... More
