You cant go wrong here, they are consistent meal after meal. Have been eating here for at least 15 years now. Always spot on. Service fine, can bring your own beer or wine and they will split up dishes for more than one person. Lasagna here is awesome!!!

Gencarellis Resturant off New York Ave. Lyndhurst has one of the best meatball parmigiana subs as well as chicken and veal parmigiana dishes. There prices are moderate and parking is plentiful.
