I've been here twice now and it doesn't disappoint. It has an upscale, but homey feel and the broad wine and food options are outstanding. I finished my meal with the Italian cheesecake, which was incredibly tasty. Two thumbs way up!

Get the mozzarella. The owner will make it at your table. It's insane. The stuffed veal chop here is literally the best I've ever had and I've enjoyed that at numerous places. Make sure u have a reservation.

We ate here last week and felt like we were robbed. Three of us got the grilled veal chops which were not very big and they were $55.00 each. Most places have a good veal chop for $45.00. My girlfriend got a stuffed veal chop which seamed to be the sames size as ours if not bigger and hers was... More

Every experience here is better than the rest. Ask Joe (the owner) to give his suggestions - always great! Great atmosphere, food and wine superb! Hard to get into so plan ahead.

This was our 4th visit to Cafe 2825, and we've never been disappointed. We split the calamari and stuffed artichoke - both fantastic. For entrees, we had the chicken rollantini, chicken clemente, Sunday gravy, spaghetti carbonara and gnocchi with bolognese (a special). The 2 favorites were the pasta dishes - the gnocchi and the carbonara. You can get half portions,... More

The owner Joe was absolutely the best! Treated us like guests in his home. We couldn't decide what type of wine we wanted so he let us sample 2 recommendations before choosing. The food was bursting with flavor. One of the best meals I've had in AC! It's a small restaurant, so I recommend making a reservation in advance.

This is a very special place. The owner greeted us like old friends, the food was fabulous,better than many NY Italian restaurants. I felt like I was in Italy. Everything was delicious and homemade. We especially loved the table side homemade fresh mozzarella with roasted red peppers. Spectacular food and ambiance.

This is definitely the best restaurant I have been to in Atlantic City. The owner coming to the table to check on everything makes this place 5 stars plus without a doubt. Great food
