The Best Italian Restaurant in Bergen County

So how does one become the best Italian restaurant in Bergen County, NJ? Hard work? Sure. Practice? Definitely. We can give you all the cliché answers that you can think of, but we think that we have a pretty good idea of what makes us one of the best Italian restaurants in Bergen County. Quality Food When it come to having a great Italian restaurant, your food has to be on point. Of course we think our sauce is better than the other guys! Of course we are partial to our meatball recipe (we think Joe’s Fried Meatballs are possibly the best in the country). But why do we believe it’s so good? Here is the secret: We just refuse to cut corners. We know what goes into our dishes. We buy the best ingredients, we source the best wines, and we make sure that the quality stays consistent. Period. When you come back to us for one of our double cut pork chops, we want it to be just as good as how you first remember it. (And we want you to come back with friends because you trust that it will be!) We also believe in value and that is why we price our dishes fairly. Yes, you may pay a little more than you would at another restaurant, but you are getting a lot more in terms of value. Great Service When you walk in the door, we want you to feel at home. If you have been here before, chances are we will remember. After a couple more times, you are as good as family. One thing that you will notice is that our staff is always the same. We hire the best and they work hard to make sure that you have an amazing experience. Our hosts, waiters, bartenders, and support staff very rarely change. They are amazing people that take their jobs seriously and put their hearts into giving great service. We know that you can spend your money at any one of the hundreds of restaurants in Bergen County. When you choose to spend it with us, we respect that decision and we NEVER take it for granted. Personalized Atmosphere We know that some people do not like...

The Ultimate Bergen County Mother’s Day Checklist

It’s Springtime in Bergen County (finally!) and that means that Mother’s Day is right around the corner!  If you plan on impressing a special mother in your life, then we have a Bergen County exclusive Mother’s Day checklist for you! This is the perfect list to give you ideas on what to buy Mom for Mother’s Day or where to bring Mom for the best Mother’s Day Brunch in Bergen County! PS – This list is good for impressing your actual mother or the mother of your children… or a grandmother… or all of the above!  (Hey, we’re here to help!) Here’s our cheat sheet for this year’s Mother’s Day: If the Mom in your life love’s sweets and pastries, then show up on her doorstep with a box of mini pastries from Rispoli Pastry Shop in Emerson or a crumb cake from B&W Bakery in Hackensack.  Think crumb cake is too passé?  Well, then you’ve never had one from B&W! Trust us – it’s awesome! Flowers go a long way!  Unless they are allergic to them, your Mom might really appreciate a custom bouquet of Spring flowers for Mother’s Day!  And in the flower department, you are in luck, because many towns throughout Bergen County have great florists!  (If you have a favorite, please let know in the comments section below!)  Our favorite springtime flowers are roses, tulips, peonies, carnations and lilies! Don’t forget a card!  If you have kids, a hand-made card is the best and is guaranteed to make Mom’s heart brim with joy.  No kids?  Stick with Hallmark, but don’t forget to add your own little personal message.  It’s nice to write a little note to let your Mom know how much you love them, but also tell them why they are so important to you.  There are a bunch of Hallmark and specialty cards stores throughout Bergen County, but we also like Papyrus Greeting Cards & Stationary. You can find one in The Shops at Riverside in Hackensack or in The Garden State Plaza in Paramus. Treat Mom to the best Mother’s Day Brunch in Bergen County! Sanzari’s New Bridge Inn know how to do Mother’s Day!  The Mother’s Day Brunch Buffet at Sanzari’s New Bridge Inn is delicious and...
