"Our Mom's birthday 'party' of 11 family members today (8/30) were royally treated to wonderful service and fabulous food, for which we are so grateful!! Thank you Martino, the gracious owner who patiently explained all the specials, which none of us could resist. From fresh fish dishes to 'pocket' pasta filled with gorgonzola & pear, & appetizers like creamy burrata & tomato drizzed with balsamic, you won't be disappointed! Yes, the complimentary giant parmesan cheese wheel & marinated eggplant were a hit too. Beautiful flowered patio setting, white table cloths, delicious authentic food...a very special way to celebrate a special 92 year young lady! Go! Enjoy! Molto bene! "

"We have been to Il Molino several times with family and friends and have never been disappointed. The owner, Martini is amazing and hospitable to everyone who walks through his doors. The quality of food is a taste of old Italy with a twist of modern cuisine. Hands down the best Italian food we have had in NJ. Keep up the good work and keep cooking your amazing dishes!"

"Understanding the crazy times we live in, I ordered take-out last evening. Eggplant parmigiana over spaghetti. I grew up in NJ and was weaned on some of the best Italian food (my favorite). This being my first time ordering from Il Monello, I was unsure of what to expect. The eggplant parm dinner is hands-down the best I have EVER had. Kudos to the chef and team. Well done! "

"I had the opportunity to dine at this great restaurant for a late lunch on Saturday afternoon. I have not heard or read anything about the place, but drive past it everyday on the way to work. So my wife and son decided to give it a try. Well we were all very impressed to say the least. The food was outstanding, especially the pork chop special. The sliced cheese from the giant wheel accompanied with salami and grilled eggplant to start was an excellent touch. But what really stood out was the service. The wait staff were impeccable and professional. I haven't seen this level of service anywhere in a really long time. I notice staff actually wait until the only lady at the table had her order ready to be plated, then they brought the rest of our food. The owner/chef visited our table to make sure all was okay. It's details like this and the great food that make this place stand out from the rest. We will definitely go back soon. Outstanding dinning experience! "

"We have been to Il Monello over the past few years and have always enjoyed our visits there. My parents have been with us for dinner several times and we consider it as one of our favorite restaurants. They recently celebrated a milestone anniversary and requested that we dine there to celebrate. We arranged for a surprise family party of about 30 people and were fortunate to have great weather that day so our tables were set up outside on the patio. As always, the staff was very attentive and gracious and the food was excellent. All of the guests expressed how they were impressed with the food and service and thanked us for the enjoyable experience. We will look forward to our next dinner there soon."
