For my birthday my parents decided to choose a new restaurant in the area to take me to dinner. They stumbled upon Luca's Ristorante. It was voted in the top 20 best fresh pastas in all of New Jersey and I can definitely agree with that. The decor is beautiful, the service is fantastic, and the food is some of the best I have ever eaten.
The dish I ordered was gnocchi with braised sirloin steak and caramelized onion in a white wine beef reduction. It came out hot in the disk it had been cooked in and was steaming at the table. This was an absolutely beautiful presentation because the smell perfumed the entire dining room.
The sirloin was absolutely tender, I didn't need a knife at all. It had an extremely meaty flavor without being too overpowering of the gnocchi underneath. The gnocchi were light as a cloud and the perfect complement to the braised meat.
Definitely check out this restaurant if you are in the area. Everything else my family ate was fantastic and you can tell everything is extremely fresh and homemade!
