We've had nothing but great experiences at Fascino. The ricotta gnocchi is as good as everyone says. The short ribs are delicious. Try the polenta fries and the spaetzel. You won't regret it. The desserts are all homemade and amazing. The service is always exceptional. The waiters and front office team do a nice job of remembering customers. It makes each experience very personal. The ownership is attentive and accessible (Chef Ryan and the members of his family). This is a fine dining staple for us and we highly recommend it. I just hope they'll bring back the lobster bisque one of these days!” — Ben G. Nutley
Chef Ryan and GM Chris created a spectacular 7 course menu for us. For a wine tasting evening service is critical and Fascino provided us with superb service for a true fine dining experience to match the wine. Thanks to the staff, Chef Ryan and Chris for providing us with a spectacular evening.

A gem! Always a Great Meal. I usually think of Fascino as a special occasion place, but truly, not only are occasions special here, but everyday is special. The quality of the food and service are superior to most other local places. Everything we have ever gotten there has been great. I look forward to returning soon. Highly recommended!" — March 3/16
Never fails to please. I dined at Fascino on Saturday night. I had the a pasta special; homemade pasta, all of them are, with a very light and refined, smoky Carbonara sauce, with shaved truffles. It was DELICIOUS. We shared the requisite polenta, marscapone fries. Always a treat. The bronzino was perfect. A friend who is a chef dined with us. He had a game meat. I think it was venison. I had a taste and it was delicious. My husband's gnocchi was a light as air. The bread pudding for dessert was heavenly. — Montclair 12/15
We met another couple here and we all ordered appetizers and main courses. Everyone had various issues (vegetarian, sodium, calories) and we all found excellent options. The food was truly delicious and the service was wonderful, from Chris who answered the phone to the lady who sat us to Walter, our waiter. There is no corkage fee as the place is BYOB, apparently common in NJ. Even the bread served was tasty as it was some type of cheese-jalapeno biscuits as well as plain bread. We anticipated small portions and yet left full with no room for dessert!" — NYC 11/15
We chose the 5 course tasting menu. Everything was fantastic. The restaurant is still very intimate and not too noisy. The food comes out perfectly timed no rush and no lapses in waiting on courses. They are BYOB as well, which is my favorite anyway. I am very happy we did the tasting menu but loved the fish I had for the Piatto course so much I wish I had that as a full meal. It was that good. The tasting menu was portioned perfectly for the total amounts and giving us the ability to experience the menu without eating too full. I definitely recommend this spot if your in the area." — Wayne, NJ 2/16
This place is a real find. I am normally not a huge fan of Italian restaurants, particularly in NJ, but I was a big fan of this place. Ambience is very was absolutely the best. The mascarpone polenta fries were quite different from anything I've tasted before, in a very, very good way. The added taste of the gorgonzola really made for a fantastic dish that I highly recommend. For dinner, the pasta was perfectly al dente and the mushrooms were tasty. My girlfriend got ricotta gnocchi in a sweet sausage bolognese with basil and pecorino perfectly fluffy with a great taste. We will absolutely be back and I can't wait to take my family and friends here! ”— Nutley 4/17
