Why did I wait so long

I’ve lived in this area for more than 20 years and have always heard good things about this restaurant? We went there a few weeks ago. Service was great, food was better and we’ll be going back soon. The Ravioli special was just as good as anythinjg I experienced in Italy. Only complaint – I should have gone when I first heard about it!

Ravioli - 3 types

Cranford Gem

Not in the immediate ‘downtown’ area, Triestina Ristorante is in a burgeoning area on Centennial Ave that is also home to a new French Restaurant, a Calabrian Pizza joint ,and an English tea-room, to boot. It has a semi-formal atmosphere with starched tablecloths and a professional wait-staff. The fact that it is BYO is a major plus for all of us who enjoy fine wine but do not want to pay the normal restaurant mark-up. The menu items are standard, NJ style Italian, with some interesting cold and hot antipasti. But the waiter-recited specials are lengthy and imaginative, and transcend the ubiquitous Italian fare found in these parts. All the items are well-executed and worth a return visit. We have been there half a dozen times, at least.

Duck a la Orange

A half duck, on the bone, with very crispy skin and a robust orange sauce served with mashed potatoes, green beans, and zucchini was wonderful. It was served steaming hot, plated attractively, and amply proportioned. It was a special dish, and not what one would expect in a neighborhood Italian restaurant. I closed my eyes and I was eating in Paris. The “J” Pinot Noir (2003) I brought with me was a perfect match for the duck. The salad of arugula with fresh mozzarella and prosciutto di Parma was an excellent first course.

Wonderful!

I didn’t know this treasure existed! Now that I do I plan on making this one of my go to places. Food is excellent; all homemade on the spot and very fresh. Service is A-one! BYOB is an extra plus. A definite for those who like great food!

Chicken w/ fresh mutz, tomatoes & onions

Chicken was thin and grilled. Dinner was light yet filling…Portion was very good. I never finish my plate and always take a doggie bag home….not here…it was just too good!

Pros
Placed a take out order and had to go back 3 times. First they didn't include part of my order, so I had to go back. Went back got the rest of my order and went home. Took everything out to find the 1 Lb. of cooked & cleaned shrimp I ordered was raw. Call
