This used to be very good but the food and service declined after Isen left. We went one evening for dinner but found a legal notice posted on the door. We checked it out again but it is now closed.

Six of us had Mother's Day dinner at Il Piccolo Ristorante. The two waiters were very attentive. We loved the appetizers - calamari, "down neck" shrimp, and caesar salad. The bread was warm and crusty. Everyone loved the entrees. It was the perfect choice. We will definitely be returning soon for their lunch specials and dinner.

Excellent food, quite reasonable, service was superb. A small place that can get noisy at times but well worth the trip.

We were a party of four and went for what we hoped would be a fabulous Italian meal. The restaurant itself is very small, seating less then 40 people. The walls were without decoration, but clean and bright. It's BYOB, so this was a big plus. We brought our own Chianti and it was quite good. We received bread on... More

Ate here on Mother's Day. I did not even want to go out, but my husband insisted. Was only half full when we were there (it's a tiny place). Gave us cans of soda that had expiration date of September 2012. We only checked the date because the soda tasted a little "off". Food was okay, not great. After we... More

Went here for a birthday celebration by locals who have frequented this restaurant before. It's located in a small strip mall, so we weren't sure what to expect. Having a reservation was a plus because it is quite small inside and we were glad we didn't have to wait for a table. During the week they have specials for $14.95... More

We went out as a party of 6 for a birthday celebration in September. Aparently, this restaurant was "Hot Stuff" when it was located in Orange, NJ. This we were told by the 2 other couples. We were presented with the specials. The waiter said that the Filet Mignon special was the best, so 4 of us ordered it. The... More
