Dinallo's is closed & out of business for about a year. It should be removed from your reviews. As it is closed & out of business why is it necessary to write 100 words. There must be a better way to get this information out.

Have been 3 times for lunch in the last month, great food each time. Had the veal special and it was phenomenal. A pasta special last time was fresh and a great portion. Room is a little tight, but the other patrons are half of the ambiance. Bar is lively, service is good- not overbearing but not 5 star either.... More

Entrance is down a few stairs (basement) which leads straight into the bar area with a few tables on the right side. More tables are situated in the back of the restaurant and there are some tables upstairs. There is parking on the restaurant property (not a large lot) and some street parking (difficult to find). Standard chicken parmigiana (large... More

Dinallo's is a great Italian place. The food is excellent and portions are well-sized. The bread is phenomenal! The restaurant has a full bar and could get noisy for dinner, but service is awesome, and I have never had a bad meal there. Enjoy!

My friend and I were driving back to NJ from a NYC event. He remembered this place he had not been to in many years. It was a Thursday night and we got there late (like 9ish) and the place was PACKED at the bar and in the regular dining area. There was entertainment and dancing. We were lucky to... More

The other dishes were fillet of Sole, rack of Lamb and some pasta dishes. I tested all and they were so good I am not sure what to order next... More

She replied that the best local Italian restaurant was not on the list and referred me to Dinallo's. Had the absolute best chicken parm ever ! Yes, the place is small and crowded,... More

It's small, crowded and noisy. So know that going in. And the bar scene can be a little over the top (check that one out for yourself). But Dinallo's generally serves a very good meal and while a bit expensive, uses fresh ingredients and you won't leave disappointed! Recommended!

Manager claims he told her to offer us a drink at the bar, but she didn't,... More
