"We are not from the area and babysitting our grandkids, we came upon this neighborhood plaza that has a bakery, café, a large full service restaurant and gelato bar. We booked reservations for dinner in the restaurant. We didn't know how the restaurant would be with 3 children under 4 for a 7PM reservation on a Saturday nite, but they were very accommodating. It is a very busy place, with many tables, very full, some with families and some as couples, tables of 4. The food was delicious and the service impeccable. We weren't rushed, but they were aware of timeliness with 4 little ones. They provided crayons and paper for the crayons and a nice children's menu. They even brought gelato from the gelato bar for dessert for the children. There was music in the other café area going on that night as well. The bakery is huge.
We told our daughter to return with her family, a nice place for a couple with children to enjoy a very good meal and have an evening out.

"I love Calandras and have been an avid customer for years. Friday was the first time I have been since the summer and my boyfriend and I were incredibly disappointed by the change in menu. They have eliminated an exorbitant amount of choices (including our favorite) and took upscale dining choices and Americanized them. My boyfriend had the veal and was unimpressed by the toughness of meat( 25 dollars ) that he actually just picked at it. I had the spaghetti in pesto with breaded chicken. The pasta was outstanding, the chicken lacked any spice or real flavor. An 86 dollar dinner and we were incredibly disapponted. I really don't know if we would go back and spend that kind of money for food that we didn't really enjoy."

"Average pasta dishes at outrageous prices. Using the receipt from dinner to get 20% off of takeout pastries almost made it worthwhile."

"This is the 3rd time I've been to the restaurant and I'm always expecting more than I receive for the money. $20-30 entree prices for dishes like Penne alla Vodka should impress and there is nothing impressive that makes me want to return other than great ambiance. For the price, I'll return to De Novo in Upper Montclair or hit one of the local spots that's not as pricey and has better food. I would recommend that they work on their unique touch and really make their signature dishes stand out more."

"This was just a terrible experience. The bartender was just out of training, and it was her first night at the bar....she tried her best, I will give her that. The food was just so below average, with no creativity. I will never go back to this restaurant and wonder how they can serve such below average food when there are so many fantastic Italian restaurants in the immediate area. Calandra' bread is pretty good though and I would say it's the best tasting item on their menu."

"Calandra's Italian Village rarely disappoints. The farfalle with sausage and vodka sauce is by far the best we have ever had- always delicious. The only negative on this visit was the chicken cutlet- very oily and bread served unusually cold. Otherwise everything else was great!"

"They have a very nice menu with a lot of different options. They offer a kids menu too. The meatballs were delicious. We had to order and extra side of meatballs to share so we would eat the kids'. They have a nice wine selection also. I love eating outdoors and the setting is very nice. Great for families with kids."
