Lovefood selected an Italian Restaurant in Middlesex County as the "most charming" Italian restaurant in New Jersey and perfect for a romantic night out it's Catherine Lombardi' in New Brunswick. "This restaurant is named after owner Mark Pascal’s grandmother, who came to the US from Naples. The menu is based on her recipes, and customers love the cozy atmosphere almost as much as the dishes. Among the top-rated menu items are the garlic bread, spinach and mushroom ravioli, and fried calamari with sweet and spicy marinara."
