My first visit here was for a small family celebration. The service was quick and super friendly. I thought my sister and brother in law were friends with the wait staff or had maybe been there a dozen times with how well we were treated! Nope! It was only their second visit. Apparently everyone who works there is just really nice. The House salad was great - romaine, parmesan, toasted sesame seeds, balsamic Italian dressing, olives, tomatoes. The Margherita pizza is the best I've ever had. You know how you read the description of a margherita pizza and it sounds wonderful but is never that special? This one lives up to its pure, simple ingredients - "Fresh mozzarella, sliced roma tomatoes, fresh sliced basil, garlic". Perfection. Somehow dessert was ordered. OMG. Sopapilla Cheesecake with Butter Rum Sauce. Worth it. Worth every calorie. Go here. Bring cash.

I live right next to this place, so out of convenience I'll keep going. The food isn't that great, but it's not bad. Service has always been fine.

Kitchen 519

Reviewed By fligster - Sicklerville, New Jersey

We ate here for lunch on a weekend and didn't realize they would be serving brunch. This was not an issue and the waiter provided us a lunch menu where most items were available to order. The service here was excellent and the food was good. One thing I didn't care for was the door to the kitchen looked very dirty.

Filomena Lakeview

Reviewed By 7Linda67 - Mullica Hill, New Jersey

We ate her on the Friday after thanksgiving. We made a reservation and I’d recommend making one because this restaurant always seems busy. Food was decent. I had the penne bolognese which was good. Huge servings so plan to take some home. My daughter had the eggplant parm. My son had the fettuccine Alfredo. Both enjoyed it. Decent wine choices. Service ok. Loud bar on first floor so try to sit in the upstairs dining room. All in all, worth the money. $115 for 4 people with wine and dessert.

These are by far the best bagels ever!!!!! Whether you eat them as soon as you get home, or buy dozen or so like we do, slice and freeze for later, then toast! They are awesome, always! And service is good and pleasant always.

Scarpinato's Cucina & Catering

Reviewed By gmomt - Sewell, New Jersey

We had a group of 12 people dining at Scarpinato's last evening. After we were seated, menus circulated freely. Our waitstaff took our beverage (this is a byob restuarant) orders; then returned to the table with 2 huge breadbaskets along with cheese & peppers, dipping oil for the Italian bread & a bowl of roasted garlic in oil. Almost everyone sampled these offerings. Consensus: hmmmmmm good!!!! Three soups were offered: lentil, pasta fasole & egg w/spinach soup. All delectable too! Scarpinato's had their $10 meal special available; the 12 of us ordered from that list of entrees. My spouse & several others ordered sausage w/peppers over pasta. There were several chicken offerings served over pasta; I tried the chicken cutlet with spinach and mozzarella cheese over pasta. Absolutely delicious & I took half of it home. The portions here are huge so almost everyone took a bag home. This restaurant is on the small size so parking spaces in their small lot go quickly. Although they do not take reservations, it's a wise idea to let them know if there's a big group descending on them. We sat in their banquet room so we could sit together; a member of our group arranged that seating with the management three weeks ahead of time. My spouse & I would heartily recommend Scarpinato's!

Tori's Bistro

Reviewed By davidiap - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

We've been here several times with varying results that are generally average.  Sandwiches are okay although they still couldn't get a burger right after extensive friendly discussion.  Pasta has been decent.  Chicken cutlets were good, but pretty much like what I'd make at home.  Cost for dinner is in their favor, easy to have a cheap bill.  Overall a decent-enough local joint.  I'd say 2.5 or 2.75 stars but I can't, so do I go with 2 or 3?

We enjoy coming here after an afternoon at the nearby park (Timber Creek). Lots of good options, different sundaes and other creations. Also hot dogs, if you're in the mood. Outside seating. Friendly staff. I believe it was cash only, but I might have that wrong.

Really appreciate this Starbucks.. Met up with someone I started to talk to here and it was a really relaxed, nice environment. It was really clean. The staff was nice. They didn't rush us at all, though we were still sitting there talking when they closed, because we didn't pay attention to the time they closed. A member of the staff just came over and said very kindly, "Just to let you know, we're closed now." We apologized and left. He was so nice and they made me feel very welcomed. Appreciate it!
