In one sense, this is yet another of the ubiquitous Jersey Italian restaurants. How many more do we need? This one, however, offers broader food choices, prepared in a not necessarily Italian way. Quail that was not overcooked over risotto with lots of well-prepared mushrooms was first rate--definitely a repeater. Canneloni was better than pedestrian, but not necessarily a repeater. "No substitutions" is a turnoff when the main piece of an entree is attractive but the accompaniments are not, unless you want to buy them ala carte.
Service was unsophisticated but friendly and efficient. The place is crushingly loud, but a little room off to the side and corner tables here and there are better. The light is turned down progressively, it seems every 30 minutes; it started fine and wound up cave-like, even though nobody in sight was on a hot date.
This restaurant has improved a lot through the years and is a nice BYO choice in a community not known for fine restaurant food.
Better choices out there...
Food was good but not outstanding
Excellent food and service
A wonderful local place. Friendly and gracious service. The chef does great job with fish. Casual and elegant setting.
Very noisy . Steak was just ok. Bolognese was good and chicken also
As always a delight. I don’t know why we don’t come here more often. Staff is professional and pleasant and the food is always top notch. Plus as a BYO it is a rare value in the area.
Terrific little gem off the beaten path in summit. Food was outstanding. So well prepared. Will be back very soon.
La Focaccia never dissapoints!, Consistently delicious!
Was rushed as soon as we sat down. Rushed to order and food was out so fast my wife and I were out of the restaurant in about an hour. Yes we had appetizers. Good did not live up to description.
Delicious, fresh food. Family friendly, has children’s menu. Great for celebration dinners. Highly recommend
We had a great table and the food was very good. Waiter made us feel rushed and was not friendly. Rest of the staff was great.
We will go back and ask for a different waiter!
These waiters are the best! And the food is always fantastic! It’s been our local fave now for years!
Lunches here with some Ladies. Mostly had salad and everyone enjoyed their meal. Fresh and delicious!
Sunday night family dinner. Food and service was spectacular.
Always excellent service and food. We go 2 to 3 times a month never disappointed
Great food and great service!
Our family, LOVES it! We go for birthdays. 🎈🎈🎈
Salmon was undercooked, food poorly seasoned and cream clotted in my coffee....a new cup was fetched. Very disappointing for Summit. I get better quality in Ironbound in Newark.
Great menu - well prepared - consistently good food- professional staff - always good to eat there !
We were back here again, and we're not disappointed. We had zucchini blossoms and the warm figs appetizers to start. Both were excellent. My wife tried the homemade lasagna and loved it. I had rack of lamb off the specials menu and enjoyed it.
We skipped dessert.
We went to dinner early so restaurant was abnormally quiet.
The food was fantastic.
Very, very disappointing meal, atmosphere.
Reservation was for 8:00PM - was not seated til 8:15. Meal was not acceptable for the prices.
We had guests and were very embarrassed.
Experienced & courteous staff. It’s no wonder why the place is packed with locals each weekend.
Food and. Service was very pleasant. I will go back!
Amazing food and great service - great place for families and friends
Food was good, service could've been better. Nice decor, parking. Little tough or a bit of a walk. Don't bother informing them of celebrations, they only offer a candle if you buy dessert.
Nice meal. Great service. Just a tad expensive for what it was.
I arranged the restaurant reservation for my colleagues. They have eaten at the restaurant before so they are return customers. They enjoyed it. Food was very good from what I was told. I am sure they will be back again. Thank You for your service.
This wsasour sixth visit to La Focaccia ,and we have never been disappointed.
Made reservations here because of it's high rating and many excellent reviews. I guess I ordered the 4 most subpar items they have to offer on their menu (1 was a shrimp fra diavollo special) shrimp had overpowering seafood odor and was OK at best. Antipaso Misto was terrible, fried artichokes were good, oysters were oysters, and brussel sprouts were salty. Best item was the chickpea and olive oil served to dip bread in (based on restaurant's name, bread was a real disappointment)
Made reservation on Open Table. Upon arriving, a waiter took us directly to our table so I knew we would not be getting our Open Table points. I made sure when we left to tell the host to enter our attendance and credit us for the visit. I got the impression they were trying to avoid crediting us for the points.
The tables were all very close together and the noise level in the restaurant was so loud we could barely hear the conversation between the 4 of us.
The Restaraunt was very hot and not comfortable. Turn on the A/C.
With all the above being said the food was EXCELLENT. The veal Chop Parmesan was one of the best I’ve ever had and all the other guests with me really enjoyed all their dishes.
The service was also excellent although a bit old school.
I’m not sure I would go back because I was uncomfortable while dining but the food was so good I might be willing to try it again.
Great food and service. Great ambience
La Focaccia has great food and a friendly wait staff. It's a bit noisy, so having a group works better than a twosome in that atmosphere. Very prompt on our reservation with comfortable seating arrangements.
I miss the table clothes for dinner and the service has become more robotic - They use to be much more friendly-
BYOB is the best!!
We were pleasantly surprised since it had been about 20 years since our last visit. The decor was fine yet casual. Our meals were delicious from apps through dessert. Dinner portions were larger than expected and worth the price. Service was excellent and attentive. We will definitely return. BYOB also.
Our favorite restaurant in our area, we have dined there several times a month for 15 years. The food and service is consistently better than very good.
I took my Boyfriend here for his Birthday dinner. Everything was absolutely delicious. To start, a basket of warm, fragrant focaccia (of course) was brought to the table, along with a wonderful garbanzo bean puree with olive oil. Then we had fried artichokes, stuffed olives, vitello tonnato (a personal favorite of mine), calve's liver and branzino; and for dessert, key lime pie and creme brulee. All of the dishes were beautifully prepared; and the service was both friendly and professional. And there were so many other things on the menu that sounded wonderful, too... we will definitely return!
Delicious food but very expensive if you order the specials!!!
Best BYOB Italian place around. Food is always great and the value is outstanding!!!
