The Talk of Old Tappan, NJ
Two Dinners for the Price of One
Everywhere you go, people are talking about the Zagatrated restaurant located in Old Tappan, New Jersey.
“We have a tremendous wine list,” notes Qosaj. “Our crusted New Zealand rack of lamb with mustard, herbs, and our rib eye steak are favorites. So is the Chicken Danzis with apples, dry raisins, and sherry sauce. Our customers rave about our half roast duck with apples, raisins, and cherry sauce. The shrimp risotto with asparagus, garlic, and white wine sauce, the branzino francaise over spinach in a lemon wine sauce, and the escargot with shrimp in a fra diavolo sauce keeps customers coming in,” he adds.
One recent diner raves, “This place is a gem! Benny Qosaj, the owner, is a great host. The double-cut pork chops were very tasty and they serve an extremely generous portion. The homemade tiramisu is super good. You’ll end up taking home food, or else you’ll waddle out! Their buy one, get-one-free dinners are a delicious bargain.”
Vicolo Ristorante, in business for 9 years, is available for any type of private party, such as anniversaries, holiday parties, birthdays, graduations, bridal parties, and more. “You don’t have to travel to Italy this year to enjoy fine dining. Vicolo Ristorante has the warmth, charm, and friendliness of a neighborhood Italian restaurant without the passport,” says Qosaj.
Vicolo Ristorante is open noon to 3PM for lunch and 4PM to 10PM for dinner 7 days a week. There is live entertainment on Friday and Saturday evenings. Call (201) 497-8777 for a reservation, or just stop by.
