    Cafe Venezia

    I love discovering new and/or new to me places to eat. Around the holidays I went to Cafe Venezia for the first time with my family though my parents had gone a few weeks earlier for a holiday dinner with their friends. They raved about it so we went for a pre- New Year’s dinner. According to the restaurant’s Facebook page they recently celebrated their one-year anniversary so it is still sorta new-ish. Anyway, Cafe Venezia is a small, family owned Italian restaurant in Martinsville, NJ and the atmosphere, staff, and owners are so welcoming and friendly. That combined with the excellent food has made this a restaurant that will stay in…

    Fratello’s Restaurant

First off, the restaurant is so cute on the outside with a striped awning and twinkle lights all around. Complimentary bread and bruschetta graced our table shortly after we were seated. Bread and bruschetta are always a…

    Restaurant Review: Basilico

    I’ve sort of, but not really, reviewed other restaurants before when I’ve been away on vacation. I say not really, because basically all I did was share a picture of what I ate and where while away with a  few other details sprinkled in there. So this is really my first actual restaurant “review”. I didn’t even plan to do it until I arrived at this restaurant, Basilico, for the first time ever and as soon as I sat down and looked at the menu I thought to myself that I had to do a review and share my experience! This italian restaurant is located in Millburn, NJ in a…
