I loved the pizza, thin and crispy and just how they make it in Italy. The free bread and roasted tomato spread was also awesome.

I love this place. They use organic, natural quality ingredients and make fantastic meals. The pizza is so good as are their pasta dishes. The olives and salads are also a must. The interior is rustic and warm.

The food was not objectively bad, however it was overall not an amazing experience. Paying top dollar for Italian food you'd expect it to be phenomenal, especially in NJ. However here the food was OK at best. Calamari tasted frozen, and pastas, while fresh, felt very "safe" and generic. Would have liked to see some more innovation and quality of... More

Went here for the first time with some friends for lunch. Place was deserted but service was pitifully slow. Prices are absurd and portions are small ($16 for a 'personal pizza' that left me starving).

Group of 30, each of us celebrating a 75th birthday at T. Bolu. Excellent and efficient service, welcoming staff. Each item delicious. Lovely end to the evening with a platter at each table of slices of flourless chocolate cake alternated with Bolu's tasty small cannolli, and oh, a candle burning in the middle. Working with the staff from making the... More

We were in the area for an event, and decided to find someplace for dinner. Tripadvisor located this place within a few miles, so we tried it out. We were very pleased. It was a Sunday afternoon so the place was not busy. We were seated immediately, and our drinks arrived almost immediately after being ordered. We made some choices... More

Great Salads, soups, panini's, pasta's. Add organic fish or chicken to any salad and it is more than a meal. Very generous portions. Tasty appetizer menu. Nice place for a business lunch or to dine with family or friends. Friend, efficient staff.

Had the mushroom salad with grilled chicken. THe mushrooms were warm and made me happy inside. The grilled chicken was tasty and crispy-like. Really enjoyed that salad. I wanted to order so many things but since I was going out for dinner had to limit it to the one dish. Next time I want to try the seared tuna salad.... More

I always want to like this place because it's close to my house and I like the concept. But the few times I've been - I've been disappointed. The salad is not fresh - there is just something missing - and the prices are very high for what you get. I would give it a D for disappointing. By the... More
