My daughter and I recently enjoyed a superb meal at Cafe 2825. Although the dining quarters are a bit cramped, once your food arrives you don't even notice...or care. We both opted for the caesar salad which was the best we have ever eaten. After reading another reviewer's comments about the eggplant rollatini, I couldn't consider ordering anything else. The...

This was our second visit to Café 2825 and it remains perfection in every way!!! It is definitely hands down the best restaurant in Atlantic City but I can say without hesitation that it is one of the best Italian restaurants I have been to in the USA. What makes this restaurant so special is that it is intimate yet... More

We have tried to make reservations here for a while and their reservation policy is difficult and not user friendly. You have to call to make the reservation two weeks in advance. Once you get through on the day that is 2 weeks before, most of the tables are already gone. We finally made a reservation here and unfortunately had... More

After reading the reviews and securing a reservation, we figured well if it is half as good as those reviews we will be fine. Bottom line - this is some of the best authentic Italian food you will ever have, served in an unpretentious atmosphere. Portions are large, prices are reasonable, service is excellent and I'll bet the owner drops... More

We were so excited to get a reservation after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. The ambiance is great and the service very cordial. But, the food really disappointed us. The pasta dishes were very "soupy". The tomato sauce tasted as if it were out of a can and the mozzarella cheese was bland. In fact, everything was bland and,... More

We made reservations to get into this great little restaurant in AC. We went in this past Saturday night around 530pm. We were sat right away. The food was excellent and the owner, Joe, came to our table to talk to us, check ok everything, and told us to have a great night out on the town. This country needs... More

This place is so amazing. It's honestly some of the best Italian food I've ever had. We got a mushroom appetizer too which was great. I got a mushroom pasta dish and it was so flavorful. It's nice inside, which is unexpected as the rest of the area isn't so great. The service is also really pleasant. I'm taking my... More

Looking for some good Italian food, my boyfriend and I came to Cafe 2825 for dinner. Joe, whom who knew to be the owner based on trip advisor descriptions, sat us and took our drink order. He was probably one of the most polite and friendly people I've ever met! I ordered the chicken Clemente, and added a side of... More
