"According to Owner Peter Lucaj, the four have been there before (though not always together). Patterson had the veal chop, his wife the chicken palliard while Hillary Clinton enjoyed filet of sole and Bill had spagetti carbonara," Lohud reported.
"When asked why the celebrities like the restaurant, Lucaj said he's been told 'it's due to the excellent food and service.' The family-friendly Italian eatery has been on Marble Avenue since 2017," it added.

The former president and Patterson have written multiple bestselling novels together.
"Their first collaboration, a political thriller, sold more than three million copies. The second novel, titled The President's Daughter, draws on Mr Clinton's time in and out of the White House," the BBC reported.
The dinner adds to speculation that more installments in the writing collaboration could be on the way.
The timing could also be key as the political climate heats up ahead of the 2024 presidential election which could be a rematch of President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump.
The dinner also creates speculation over Hillary Clinton's potential future plans. She lost to Trump in a run for president in 2016.
No spoilers were shared about future novels but the meeting marks an intriguing account of the connections between politics and entertainment in America.
