This is the first review I’ve ever written because until this past Friday, I have never had such a positive or negative experience that I felt compelled to blog about it on the internet.
The dinner started off ok… We all sat around 8:30, which isn’t out of the ordinary for a Friday night… Around 9:30, our server began to get anxious about running the bill because “they want to close out for the night”. We thought that was a little aggressive, but nothing crazy.
Around 9:45, our table was the last table there. All remaining staff was in a frenzy, cleaning floors and clearing tables. The lights went from a cool dim to fully ON, and the music was shut off. A harsh smell of bleach filled the air while we still had food in front of us…
We were especially floored when at around 9:55, the manager on the floor flickered the lights, and announced “Hey we close at 10:00, you know”. All having worked in the restaurant business, we could not believe this was happening…..Yes, it’s true. At 10pm on a Friday night, the 4 of us were being kicked out. When I asked for the owners phone number I was told to call tomorrow and ask for Bart. The manager clearly had no problem letting us know that he simply did not care when he turned off every single light in the entire restaurant before we even had our coats on. That was the straw that broke the camels back.
I can honestly say that we will NEVER return to Provisi. It’s a shame because the food isn’t bad- one of the better Italian restaurants in Morristown in fact. Bottom line is the way we were treated is unacceptable. The owner should be embarrassed to have such ignorant people working for him, and reconsider his staffing options. I will be calling him this week to let him know about our unfortunate experience. Hopefully he has a little more professionalism in him than his manager- however I will not count on it…

We’ve eaten in the restuarant and enjoyed oursleves. Even though the service at times can be slow and their attention to deatil not the best. Empty water glasses, not offering cheese, pepper, etc. but the location is great and their pizzas -yummy. Our real disappointment came when we called to order pick up. It was a Saturday night, we had asked them what the specials were , and we were told " No, we can’t tell you the specials, you’ll have to come in, place your order and wait" and in a very rude tone! We called back and asked for the manager, turns out we originally spoke to the manager and he continuted to be rude! and said they were afraid other restaurants would steal thier specials! It was upsetting to be treated so poorly. Didn’t seem to care when we told him we’d not be returning to his restaurant
It was one of our first visits and the veal was very dry.
