Restaurant Review

Tommy's Coal Fired Pizza offers well prepared , coal fired pizza that differs from the abundance of mediocre overcooked pizzas loaded with toppings found at many of the NJ restaurants.


NJ pizza lovers are a very subjective lot and have grown accustomed to having loads of toppings placed on a poor foundation of tasteless crust. The pizza at Tommy's is cooked quickly in a coal fired oven at 1200 degrees to ensure that the bottom crust is crispy and slightly charred, while preserving the freshness of the toppings and especially the main ingredients of plum tomatoes, mozzarella, fresh basil. and imported Italian olive oil.


The menu is dominated by many versions of pizza and toppings, with a limited selection of salads, calzones, and homemade gelato.


The owners, Tommy and Yvette Bonfiglio are energetic and welcoming and have spent 3 years on pizza research before opening this restaurant.


The interior decor is attractively casual with high ceilings, a small bar with display TV's, exposed brick and mirrored walls and candle lit tables that create a warm and vibrant ambiance.


To appreciate real close to authentic Italian pizza, order up with fresh mozzarella, plum tomatoes, fresh basil, Romano cheese, and imported Italian olive. Go light on the toppings to get the full benefit of the tasty crust and fresh ingredients.


They are child friendly, with a friendly, energetic wait staff.


During the warmer summer months, eat outdoors, on the 40 seat patio
