We had the pork chop and branzino for our main dish, which were excellent but not filling at all, very small portions. We also split a Caesar salad and 3 gelatos dessert, left hungry and spent a lot of money for not a lot of food!

Had the chef tasting menu, great option, everything was fabulous! Beet salad was outstanding, and entree of seafood combo in broth was excellent - 2 large pieces of delicious white fish (forget the names) along with 2 large prawns and a scallop, so tasty, cooked to perfection. BYOB. Will definitley be back!

My wife and me wanted to check this place after friend recommendation.
The service was great from start to finish. Décor and atmosphere are really nice, love the chairs with the high backs.
We had several apps: Antipasto Board, Fried Brussels Sprouts, Salmon tartare, Cuttlefish. Very tasty, amazing!
We finished with phenomenal Pistachio Cake. It was light and nutty.
We will be back for sure! We had a fantastic evening.

Disappointing midweek dinner,
No specials added, only menu items. They made it seem as if they added specials, however it’s the same menu.

The octopus appetizer wasn’t edible, like eating a rubber band, fat pieces of sponge, meatball app was very good.
Steak was ok, nothing great. Salmon was minuscule & undercooked, skin facing up upon presentation, requested medium.
Halibut was very good. The pasta ragu was excellent.
The bread was soft & spongy for a high end Italian restaurant I would’ve thought to have had better piece of bread.service was very good. It was expensive, wouldn’t mind, if the food was better.

This was the third time we have been to this restaurant, of which the first two experiences were solid. However this time it was a disaster. We had to wait a 1/2 hour for our table (20+ minutes last 2 times also) as the people did not get up after paying the check. I think that is less the restaurants fault. However my wife and I ordered the same dish and both of us were served a pice of fat! Not kidding both of our short ribs $42, were chunks of fat. They obviously ran out of the item after a long night or it was a major oversight. We were with new friends and just didn't eat it as we didn't want and ruin their evening? We had to pretend we were full from the appetizers which were fine by the way. The black pasta was also overdone which was not the case last time either. Service was attentive but this meal literally put such a bad taste in our mouths that we will not be returning. Very disappointing as we were hoping for a new go to place in our town and had told all our friends about it. Now we have to tell them about this experience before they go and blame us

The food is excellent and the atmosphere is terrific. Service was first class. This is a classy yet rustic BYOB gem which you would not expect to find in a strip mall. Everything served was hot and fresh. The menu is unique and different. Portions are not huge but more than enough for sure. You just may not need a doggy bag but you won’t feel cheated.

My wife and I went on a Wednesday and the noise level was fine. I suspect it might be a little loud on the weekends, but what place isn’t nowadays. We will definitely go back.

My husband and I are both in the business, I work in another of NJ’s Top 30 restaurants. We were extremely impressed with our entire experience from start to finish. Can’t wait for June 15 when we can all open our doors again. Hoping Il Nido will be offering outside dining. We have some catching up to do on celebrations, a 50th birthday and a 25th wedding anniversary!!!
