"When you have guests or want a meal before a show" at the nearby Paper Mill Playhouse, this "welcoming", family-run Millburn Italian fits the bill with "well-presented", "classic" fare in an "energetic", exposed-brick setting; BYO is "a big plus" for keeping tabs "easy on the wallet", and there's even a liquor store next door.

- Highly recommend it! The overall style cuisine is northern Italian and the decor is light and airy with soft music playing in the background.

-Had dinner on a Friday night in October. Food was delicious - unusual eggplant rollatini appetizer, pasta that can be done in half portions (fettucini cara mia with shrimp and crabmeat was recommended by waiter, and it was lovely), large entree specials of monkfish and parmesan crusted veal chop with vegetables and potatoes were perfectly cooked. Enjoyed it so much we booked an office holiday party there. Nine Italian Staten Island women raved about the Italian food at last nights party. Service for our group was impeccable - professional, there when we needed them and unobtrusive when we didn't. Absolutely recommend.
