Stefano's Wood Burning Pizza and Tratoria Branchburg, NJ - meh

Our family of four went on Saturday night for an early dinner before heading to a show. We had a coupon for $25 off $35.....When we entered there was an unprofessional sign saying they were not honoring the certificates. If we had a receipt they would return our purchase price..really? Since we were pressed for time we ate anyway.

We had a garlic knots(burnt), salads, white pizza(undercooked), penne vodka(ok), chicken piccatta and veal saltimbocca(average). $80 later we were very underwhelmed and will not be returning. Even though the restaurant was 30% full the service was mediocre. This restaurant is still on restaurant .com.

  1. Definitely agree with dawnj's assessment of Stefano's. I went there the first week it opened and encountered many problems - no highchairs (so instead of eating in, I ordered take out just so I could try their food), margherita pizza was made with regular shredded mozzarella instead of fresh and was very salty, and the fried calamari was very salty as well. I don't plan on ever returning there, despite living nearby. Many better options within a 15 minute drive!
