Always a safe choice. Good quality at reasonably price in a nice setting. And its BYOB, which we love to do.

Went here based on reviews I read as I was looking for local restaurant in Milburn.

Well worth the reviews and we had a great meal and the value was terrific.

We most definitely will be back.

We ate at La Cucina for the first time before a show at the Papermill. The food was very good, needed a bit more sauce on the pasta with the chicken Francese. The service was also very good up until it was time for coffee and dessert. They were fairly busy, and the service slacked a bit. Overall, very good experience.

Everything was adequate except for dessert. I ordered orange sorbet and was served a hollowed-out orange with the sorbet inside. Nice, except this concoction was frozen solid! By frozen, I mean I was not able to chip off a bit of sorbet to eat. It took a half hour of trying to crack the thing. My husband ordered biscotti but the waiter came back to say they didn't have any. In an Italian restaurant? It also seemed the place was much less populated than it had been when it was Clemenza's.

Would have given a higher score but we had reservations, had to wait over 1/2 hr before being seated. Had to ask to have our wine opened and for wine glasses. Received our salad which was very good but then waited over an hour for our meal. I understand they were short a person but thought this was really slow. Might go back because the food was really good but it's not going to be for quite a while. Hope they get their staffing situation fixed.

Our reservation was at 5:15 so when we arrived it wasn't that busy, but by 6:00 the place was packed. Our waitperson, Jeffrey, was attentive, friendly and not afraid to have a conversation. He was knowledgeable about the menu and, even as it became very busy, still checked on us often to see to our needs. The food was excellent and our friends who joined us also raved about the food. It is a BYOB restaurant which we like. We will definitely go back and we highly recommend this place to anyone looking for some good Italian food just like Mamma used to make.

We came for dinner before the theater. Seated immediately, the staff was attentive throughout, but we never felt rushed. We shared the Polpette appetizer which is two really large meatballs. They had a nice texture and the red sauce was slightly sweet which we liked. Both entrees lived up to our expectations. We will be going back again the next time we go to the theater.
