[every ingredient matters]
Here at our table, a love of Italian food is fostered by the integrity of each ingredient, the heartfelt sentiment behind each composition, and that universal and undeniably Roman desire to be satiated.
Welcome to Rezza in Roseland, NJ
Rezza's chef and owner, John Bendokas, learned his craft at the Culinary Institute of America and paid his dues in the kitchens of fine restaurants in New York and New Jersey.
He brings true passion to his gourmet casual Italian fare, from dishes like his House-Rolled Cavatelli, traditional Sunday Gravy, Eggplant Napolitano, to his unforgettable pizzas. And if you’re looking for something that’s very New York, there’s his 28-Day Dry Aged T-Bone Steak with Punched Potatoes.
