Closed for good!
Unlimited Seating in the parking lot, though expect service to be extremely slow, you might say non-existent, drinks are only from nearby puddles, or the nearby bbq restaurant. Ample parking, just leave enough space around the dumpsters. The food, none, ‘cause as I said, they are CLOSED!

First night out -- alfresco dining -- after being cooped up for three months due to the pandemic. It was sooo nice to eat outdoors, patio style!

Starting with cocktails: the Manhattans were mixed well, strong, and delicious. A sampler on the table was an italian pasta salad, to knosh of while we sipped cocktails. A nice surprise and very tasty.

Our starter was a mozzarella caprese salad -- pictured here. The dish was well presented, the mozzarella was moist, and flavorful. Set alongside ripe tomatoes and topped with roasted peppers, it was among the best I've had.

We paired the mozzarella with their garlic knots. The dish came with a thick Italian sauce, the perfect consistency for dipping. The knots were very tasty and lots of garlic. Mmmmnnnn!! Good!!

For our entrees, we ordered a spaghetti with meatballs and a pasta and eggplant parm. I love eggplant and this was the best! The meatballs were also delicious.

We chose to have a second drink instead of having dessert -- we were too stuffed to eat anything more!

This was a wonderful evening -- everything you would have expected after being in isolation for so long. The only thing, in my opinion, which would have enriched the experience: a little mood music piped in.

Glad that Starlite is back! They seem to have made some very positive changes.
Love that they are local and have patio dining. We will definitely return!

The best pizza and eggplant dishes in the area!
Whether you want to dine in or out, you will not be let down.

All the ingredients are fresh and everything is served with a smile.

I used to live in New Jersey and had the best memories of the pizza at Starlite. I have not found anything comparable. At a recent visit I was afraid that the memory would be better than the pizza. I was wrong. It is still the best. And we tried other entrees - meatballs and spaghetti, eggplant parmesan, veal parmesan and they were delicious as well. The restaurant is comfortable and the staff are very friendly.

Almost every time I try calling and they are advertised as open, no one answers. 10 out of 9 times, they don't have what is advertised on their menu. Over half the time no one is even there!
