Tattoni's - Hamilton NJ

Finally got there tonight, and absolutely loved it. 3 course meal for 20 bucks, plus a nice bruschetta before the salad, count me in. Really cozy inside, felt like part of the family. Owner came out to every table to see how they were doing, shook my hand as I was leaving. Presentation doesnt matter for much with these dishes, they are all about making you feel like you are at Grandma's and its gonna look a little messy, but its goin to taste phenomenal.

Antipasto salad - Some salami, ham, mortadella, provolone, black olives, tomatoes, roasted red peppers, on greens with a very light oil and vinegar.

Spaghetti w/crab sauce - This made my night. Possibly my all time favorite meal, and have only had my mothers and grandmothers in my life. My eyes lit up when I saw it on the menu so I had to try it. And it blew me away. Perfect sweet crab flavor melded with a real nice marinara. Next time I go, Im goin to just ask for a big giant bowl of this, lol.

Eggplant parmesan - Not what you would traditionally see at an Italian restaurant, where alot of places try to slice it as thin as possible and get as many layers as they can. This was one, big, juicy, tasty, thick slice of eggplant. Breaded very lightly and smothered in mozarella and marinara. Excellent flavor.

Wife had the chicken parm. Big thick chicken breast that they managed to keep very moist under the breading, mozz and sauce.

Neither of us could finish our entrees, and we (especially me) can eat.

A+ for Tattoni's in Hamilton. Cant wait to get back.

Chinese Food Recommendations - Central NJ [moved from Tristate board]

Big fan of Chinese food here, and have eaten it all over the world. That being said, my favorite in NJ is by far Tiger Noodle in Princeton. Not the nicest place to sit down in but they opened a new spot in a strip mall on Route 1, which is much nicer for a sit down meal. Food is always top notch.
