One year ago Downtown Morristown became home to the charming Italian restaurant, Nunzio’s Dolce Vita. Since opening their doors, Nunzio’s has combined traditional Italian cuisine with a modern twist prompt by chef Nunzio himself. In just a year's time, this tranquil spot has transformed the culinary landscape of this busy town and has held its weight against its nearby competition.

Nunzio’s stands out amongst the rest for its serene ambiance that is filled with family friendly staff. Lucky patrons usually get a visit from Chef Nunzio himself as they indulge on their savory and original dishes prepared with fresh ingredients from local New Jersey markets.

Located on South Street, Nunzio’s is within walking distance from the Morristown Green and the many nearby liquor stores makes it easy for customers to pick up a bottle of wine while they head over to enjoy BYOB with their dinner.
