Smile - More Italian.
There are two 'new' restaurants
Dominic's in Jamesburg is now Villa Francesca's - know the food at Dominic's was less than ok
Basile's in Monroe on the Jamesburg boarder is now Ciro's Restorante Italiano - know the owner of Basile's was very ill for years.
Have not tried either one.
Do not know if these are simply name changes
No additional details.
Yes. Dominic's was where Musso's used to be.
Basile's was good but going back years, first they split from the Freehold location, then the owners divorced, and then she became terribly ill. Sad.
If your boyfriend lives near, he may have gotten a coupon for Ciro's in the mail.
If you give it a try let us know and if I end up there with family will do the same :)
Ciro's, formerly Basiles, is now owned and operated by the guy who owned Scotto's in Twin Rivers (Scotto's, whose name hasn't changed, is obviously now owned by someone else).
The food at Ciro's lives up to the old Scotto's and more. I had a special called Penne Veronica (scallops and shrimps over pasta with white wine sauce). It was wonderful. My companion had eggplant parmesana and was also very happy. The service was great and the owner stopped by our table a couple of times (even though he was helping out by serving customers himself). I highly recommend.
Basile's had been going down for a while. This is a nice comeback and the restaurant's decor has been refreshed.
