We love coming here. The staff takes time to talk to guests and make you feel like family. Food is amazing and atmosphere is as well. We love finishing the night off at the outdoor fire pit.

The food was tasteless. This my first time going and I brought my fiancé to celebrate a work event. I spent a lot of money on a meal I didn’t enjoy.

Ate here in the past when it was Portofino's and remember it being really good. New ownership, food was OK my Chicken Parm wa a bit on the tough side, same with the Calamari. Would probably not go back as it was not what I expected and their are other Italian restaurants that are honestly better and lower cost.

I'm so happy Coney Island came to Jersey! My family (the Ruggiero's of West 16th street) booked Gargiulos for all occasions. It was great to visit the Tinton falls location. The ambience was stunning, Faith (our waitress) and Gianna were absolutely wonderful and the the food, just as I expected...delicious! Can't wait to come back!

The food was excellent. The server was outstanding. Funny, friendly and attentive without being overly so.

We enjoyed ourselves very much. Our friend, who is from Italy, said the rice balls were incredible! Better than the ones his mother used to make.

Overall a wonderful evening.

Gargiulo’s has a pleasant atmosphere and the staff is courteous. There isn’t much parking so you must valet. The baked clams were very good. We didn’t order the calamari, which I think turned out to be a good thing. We saw someone else’s order and it was huge (much more than the two of us needed). The cocktails are unfortunately overpriced. The cioppino was not cioppino. It was more a frutta de mar (?sp). Although it tasted good for whatnot was. The fettuccine Gargiulo’s had a great sauce and what I believe is homemade pasta but the chicken was dry. Overall, a decent meal and perhaps of reasonable price if you don’t get $15 drinks.

Very disappointed last night.
We had dinner reservations for 7pm.
Against our better judgement, server suggested to put in our entire order all at once and ASSURED us we wouldn’t be rushed…..
By 7:30pm, we received our drinks, appetizers, and entrees—all within five minutes of each other. The appetizer came before the drinks. The dinner came after two bites of appetizer. Even the server was surprised. Funny not funny. My eggplant parmigiana was flavorless and luke warm at best. I made no complaint (I never send back food but I should’ve) but the server KNEW I was unhappy. We had to flag down a busgirl for a proper steak knife for the rack of lamb since we weren’t given one.
As much as we liked our server (we had him before and won’t mention his name), he did NOTHING to rectify the situation. It was apparent we weren’t very important to him last night. Gargiulios, please take a lesson from your Coney Island location. Too many better restaurants around here for anyone to be subjected to this sub par rush job. We won’t be back. Sorry.
