This is our "go to" restaurant in the Summit/Short Hills/Chatham area. Service is superb. Food is excellent. Specials are always good. The owners treat you like family. Can't say enough good stuff.

The food and service is excellent. I also like the fact it's BYOB. The down side is parking could be a problem but it's worth hassle. The Resturant is a but noisie.

La Focaccia feels a bit more upscale than the typical suburban NJ Italian restaurant-comfortable ambiance, professional wait staff and excellent array of dishes nicely presented. The food is well prepared and presented and the BYO policy allows us to choose an upscale wine befitting the...More

Jacket and tie not required, but you may be more comfortable with a jacket only. Women are usually comfortable in a nice dress but not formal. Jeans are out.
Do you have a gluten free menu? I am Celiac and allergic to shellfish. Would you be able to accommodate me? My husband wants to try you for his birthday dinner.

Yes, La Foccacia does offer gluten free pasta and they have plenty of dishes that don't contain shellfish. I'm sure that they can suggest options or modify recipes to acommodate any other dietary restrictions you may have.
