Italian Restaurant

Hey Hounds,

Got a business traveler coming into town and need some recs. Need to be somewhere in the area of Ft. Monmouth.

  1. Piccola Italia, on West Park Av., off 35, is, in my view, the best Italian in that vicinity. Very good food and nice ambiance. They have a liquor license.

    2. This great offer came from a post by Tom Porc:


      I already purchased 2 gift certificates!! You pay $ 55.00 and get a $ 100.00 gift certificate mailed to you! How great is that?? I used the one for Piccola with no problems at all!

        I just ordered the pay $50 get certif for $100 deal. Cannot wait to use.

          It's so great! I also ordered one for Brandl. I have not used yet, but hey, I'll take $45.00 free!

          The pasta dishes are divine at Piccola. I usually never order pasta out. Only places like Lupa or Dasilvano I will, but here the pasta is homemade so I enjoy it!

          Have a great time!

            thanks Angelina. Will try a pasta dish for sure. As soon as it comes in the mail, I am there.!!!

      2. For lunch, I am always partial to Rosina's in Shrewsbury. On Shrewsbury Ave. Also there is La Pastaria in Red Bank...it's on a side street of Broad Street...They are both fairly close to the Fort.
