T&J's is the best. As far as for food, it completely eliminates the need to goto Arthur Ave. (One might goto Arthur Ave for better ambiance) Everytime I eat there I'm amazed. Whether I order the Chicken Scarapiello, Veal Milanese, Zuppa de Pesce, or the Pork Chop Special I walk away completely satisfied. You need to go there at least 3 or 4 times. GO on Wednesdays for their pasta night....if you're a pasta lover then this is mecca. Then I recommend a few times to try their regular menu items and then a few times to try their specials. If there is a dish you want that they don't have on the menu, chance are they will make it. Oh....don't let me forget the pizza. That's on a whole different level too. Once slice will fill you. I will admit though, the waitresses are very nice but they love to chat. Make sure you make good use of them while they are at your table because they are known to sit down at another table and chat away and disappear for a while. Sometimes they play favorites too....but go there enough and you'll be just fine. Knowing this, I still would rather eat here than anywhere else.

Port Chester is known for its large number of excellent Italian restaurants. This one is my favorite, and I've tried them all. I am perplexed by some of the negative experiences reported here; I've never had any such experience. The food is great, the service is fine, the atmosphere is fine, the portions are generous, and the prices are within the range of what one expects to pay for a better-than-the-back-room-of-pizzeria-type place.

I would not recommend this place for an event. I called them to book a luncheon to be held the day of my grandmothers funeral. I spoke with John and did not like him right away but ignored his rude attitude because I could not find another restaurant that would book the lunch due to short notice. The day of the funeral it began snowing a few hours before the lunch, when we were at the cemetery for the burial it began to snow even more. Due to the long drives many of our family members and friends had that day many decided to go right home due to the weather. I received a call from John asking where we were and I told him that people were on their way however our estmated guest count of 40-50 was no more like 20 due to the horrible weather. (I was one of those people who was not going to make it). After he charged us for all 40 guests, I found out that he rushed the guests who did arrive and told them there was no more food left, all the food was out and some that was out had been thrown away. I can't believe the nerve he had! I understand charging us for all 40 guests since I guaranteed 40 and since the food was already prepared but what F***ing nerve rushing the guests and not giving them all the food to take home. We have told so many people about this and they just cant believe what nerve this guy had. We even told the restaurant who recommend him since he could not book us. He said he would never recommend them again!

T and Js, the amazing spot in Port Chester was packed as usual so we tried their other restaurant next door, the slightly more upscale T & J Villagio Trattoria. We were concerned when we heard that it was a different chef and different menu, but since it supposedly *better* and more expensive, we thought it would be worth the risk. Big mistake. Tomatoes in the salad were half green, half brown. The carbonara was basically spaghetti floating in gallons of store-bought tasting alfredo sauce (someone should look up a recipe for carbonara) and the penne vodka tasted like campbells tomato soup with a splash of rubbing alcohol. How can such a great place get it so wrong with their second restaurant?? Don't be fooled. Wait in line, go to the original T & Js and get some basic but amazingly delicious homestyle Italian. And Villagio Trattoria: here's some business 101 for you - if the original restaurant is ALWAYS full, and the new one next door is empty, use the same menu, use the same chef, and give the people what they want!
