Italian Date Night Made Easy for Hungry Foodies
Updated: Apr 3, 2019
We got your next date night covered! Tucked back in a local shopping center in Pompton Plains, Pizza Man Family Restaurant is cranking out incredible Mediterranean-influenced dishes! Do NOT be fooled by the name. Yes, pizza here is a staple for this town but outsider's such as ourselves are coming for the Italian specialties!!
First thing I was told was to get the mussels. Being the seafood lover than I am, HOW could I possibly ignore that recommendation! Welp, it did not disappoint. No wonder they are known for their mussels and the sauce it soaks up! (Foodie Tip: Order the garlic bread and dip it in the leftover sauce!)
Everything is made in house! From the sauces to the desserts, Chef Aladin Nassar cooks each dish fresh to order. Not to mention the veal stock! The gravy made for the delicious Veal dishes cooks for hours at a time. Sometimes even up to 24 hours until he thinks its perfect! If that doesn't scream "fresh" then I don't know what does!
We were welcomed into the back of the kitchen to see if this holds true and let's just say you can have my word! Check it out...
For even more good news: Pizza man is BYO which is key to a good date date! Bring a nice bottle of red and pair it with a specialty pasta dish and you are set. Make a reservation for our next anniversary celebration or the next time your significant other asks, "What do you want to eat?"
And, boy, do we have a treat for you!!! Mention us, The Food Couple, during your next visit and get a FREE dessert!
