Hey Hounds,

    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.

      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!

          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!

        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.
