When it comes to New Jersey Italian restaurants, there is no shortage of “red gravy,” Neapolitan-style establishments. Especially in South Jersey it sometimes feels as though we are just an extension of South Philly’s Italian stronghold, and Gloucester County in fact has one of the highest Italian populations in the state. Guillermo’s Fine Italian Cuisine has two locations: one in Egg Harbor, and one I just recently visited in Pitman. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect as my experience with Italian restaurants in New Jersey is quite variable, but overall I found Guillermo’s a cut above average for the area. Solid food, huge portions, reasonably priced and in an attractive location, Guillermo’s certainly is worth consideration and ranks well with the thick competition in the area.

I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.
