NORWOOD, N.J. -- We get it. You like to eat. And you like to eat out. But dining with kids, especially young ones -- can sometimes get sticky -- in more ways than one. Kudos to the places that offer up pleasing menus for both adults and kids as well as surroundings that don’t feel like you’re dining at Mickey D’s.

Why It's Kid Worthy: Damiano Pascali’s and Anthony Volpe’s casual eatery aims to be a family place where everyone can feel comfortable. It has outdoor seating with flowers, plants and twinkling fairy lights where kids can enjoy Italian staples such as chicken piccata, spaghetti and meatballs and lasagna, while parents go for fancier grub such as grilled salmon and seared scallops.
