Expensive but good

Drinks: They have many bottles of wine to choose from as well as half bottles and wine by the glass. They also have many beers both bottles and on tap and a mixed drink menu.

Amazing experience. It does get a bit noisy on the weekends, but very, very worth your time and money. Seafood lovers MUST try the Pesce Grande.....a GREAT start to your meal.

I have eaten here a few times, and never thought much of it. However, the food has greatly improved and I was very impressed with a recent meal. Great views, and well worth the expense.

This is a nice place with a good selection of quality Italian food -- arugula salad with fennel and strawberries, ricotta cheesecake, nice selection of wines, beers and even dessert martinis. Nice outside seating area, and the inside of the restaurant is beautiful too, with an elegant bar area, and a beautiful wide staircase leading up to a balcony dining... More

We love the Italian food at Stella Marina on the Asbury Park Boardwalk. I suggest that you make a reservation and ask for the second floor dining room on weekends. The veal dishes here are excellent and the Bolognese sauce is one of the best we've ever tasted. We also love their calamari. The service is excellent. While you're there,... More

We always sit at the bar at this restaurant. The food is good the view is great, you are on the boardwalk over looking the beach and ocean. bar tenders are very attentive and know how to make a great martini. If it rains a great place to eat because you have the view of the ocean in comfort. There... More

I've been to this restaurant 2 times so far. Each time I've come to this restaurant I had a great experience. The restaurant is located on the beach. The views are beautiful. I recommend sitting upstairs. They have outdoor and indoor seating upstairs. This is a great place to come with large parties because they offer large round tables that... More

We were a party of five; we all had different dishes; all were good! It's fun to sit at a table on the boardwalk and watch "the parade." There is a lot of inside seating, too, as well as bars and seating on the upstairs deck. I had linguini with clams -- delicious. They have pizza and salads, all kinds... More

Lots of healthy seafood options, good pastas and pizzas. Overall food is solid but expensive. A small bowl of soup cost $9. Shrimp arriabiata is outstanding. Wine list is also solid. Nice ambience but hard to hear one another inside. Hard working staff rushing around. Needs to lose the dress code. It is silly to require guys on the Jersey... More

I'd been here for lunch and dinner several times and enjoyed it each time. So I recommended it to a group of friends coming from different areas of the shore. We sat inside since it was very warm out on the boardwalk area and it was very quiet, with only a few tables occupied for lunch. Our waiter never smiled... More
