Delicious and wide variety of foods. The meal started with a wonderful salad and shrimp. Everything was delicious and the pasta was heated and prepared with the topping you want. The waiter was very attentive too. Well worth the trip to NJ from Delaware.

Attended a group dinner with about 30 people for a holiday gathering at DiPaolo's 12/1/2016. I did some google searches to check out the menu as I always do prior to going to a new place. My expectations were pretty high as I liked what I read on the menus and I can report that it exceeded my expectations! Food... More

There for a local event with buffet Italian cuisine. Food is average, nothing exceptional in quality or taste. Located in Penns Grove, NJ. Not a particularly good neighborhood. Be aware of surroundings.

As a local and a business traveler, this restaurant is an oasis from the usual business travelers chain restaurants located next to out of town hotels/motels. It's food is as good as it's unique, welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. The family run business, the local regulars, and the congenial staff make for an interesting evening for the business traveler away from... More

Always excellent. A bit expensive but worth it. They have the best crab cakes ever! Everything else is excellent as well. You will definitely love this place.

There is always a special ongoing. Reservations are not needed.. The waitresses are running and they have a little confusion, as to who is serving which table.. and when that... More

So we visited there for a family bday. We live in salem county but originally from Camden county. We went on the buffet night which it seemed most of the people were there for. Should have been our first hint. We ordered off the regular menu. Apps were good. Martinis were good especially for 6 dollar special. Portions were good... More

Prior reviews state that this restaurant is located in an unfavorable part of town. However, this restaurant "shines" like a diamond! Amazing food! Amazing staff! We have had dinner here several times. Have never been disappointed. Tables set beautifully. Surf and turf, pasta Sunday , prim rib and shrimp buffet. Crab cakes are huge and all crab meat. Antipasto, house... More
