We met a group of people here for a mini-family reunion. As always, this place has AMAZING food!!! It is an old-style Italian fine dining establishment, with traditional tuxedo'd waiters and wonderful food! I had some of the calamari appetizer (which was large enough to pass around the entire table) with marinara sauce. My grilled sesame tuna with Wasabi sauce... More

This is a real neighborhood place. I was alone so I just ate at the bar. Fernando is an excellent bartender and the patrons were very warm and friendly. Excellent drinks and a good wine selection. I had the Osso Buco which was very good as was the mushroom soup. I was staying at the Wilshire Grand Hotel connected with... More

This restaurant adjoins the hotel where we stayed. From what we knew it was basically a place for adult dining. We arrived at about 4:30/5:00 pm and when the kitchen was likely busy preparing for the evening patrons. They welcomed us into the bar area and took our varied orders. I happened to mention we were celebrating 4 year old... More

After getting over the confusion between 2 restaurants with very similiar names ( Primavera and LaPrimavera) within 1/4 mile of each other, My friends and I think LaPrimavera is one of the top restaurants around, and that's saying something out here. We tend to be food snobs, but I have never had a meal less than EXCELLENT at this place.... More

Primavera's less formal sister restaurant has great food although the menu rarely if ever seems to change. On busy nights everyone seems to know everyone. Prime local gathering place.

Had dinner with another couple and unanimous-food was excellent. Four very different dishes from pork chop giambotta to broiled fish. Solicitous waiter. Good drinks. Simply great experience ten minutes from home.

Went here for dinner with a friend and while I have been to a lot of Italian restaurants, I have to say, this one ranks in the top in NJ ! They made the very best pasta e fagioli ever! It was so flavorful and hearty that I enjoyed every spoonful. (didn't want it to end) I also ordered the... More

Recently visited on a Sunday evening for dinner. Sunday is pasta night where they offer just about every pasta dish on their regular menu with a glass of house wine and salad for $14.95. What a great value!! The menu is extensive and besides the pasta, one of us had a fish entre which too, was excellent. Great food, friendly... More
