Carmabelle, I just saw your posts!
Dipiero's (not sure of the spelling, either,
) is actually the next exit up from 168. I'm not sure of the number, because I've been been up that far on the Garden State...Dipiero's is in Montvale, and my "exit" is in Westwood. I lived in Northvale up until...Thursday! It's funny that you were so close to me.
I used to drive by Dipiero's on the way home from work. I worked in Upper Saddle River, and I'm still mad that I never went to the lys in Ho-Ho-Kus.
