Café 2825 is our favorite Italian dinning spot when we go to AC. We started dinning there around 8 years ago and have never been disappointed. It's a must if your in AC. The Sunday Gravy is the best.

Went here for the first time for dinner. Place has a nice but small bar to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail.. We had the shrimp oreganata and the stuffed veal chop stuffed with prosciutto and a combination of cheeses with mushrooms and hot peppers on top. Both meals were delicious.. For desert we shared a huge piece of coconut cream pie..... More

Lucky to plan well enough ahead to snag a prime reservation a couple days before Christmas; loved every minute of our evening, romantic, intimate space, great wine/delicious appetizers and entrees (get the feeling you can't go wrong here); tableside mozzarella and ricotta preparation with thoughtful instruction by the humble owner much appreciated as hubby's already added this to his repertoire...

We had been trying to get to café 2825 for a long time. We figured it may be easier off season. We had an excellent meal. Jackie our server paired a very nice bottle of Montepulciano with my wife's and mine dishes ( Fish & Veal). We had a wonderful evening and can't wait to go back.

You have to try the stuffed artichoke. Just like mama used to make in Brooklyn. Everything was good from the service to menu. This a must go back when we are in Atlantic City again

The Chef/Owner was our host for the evening, watching over every detail of our dinner. He preformed two tableside dishes for a group of 14 which is pretty awesome. Fresh mozzarella and Caesar salad both out of this world. Mussels were large and full flavor! The calamari outstanding. My entrée was amazing. Job well done! Thank You...

First time here, and it actually lived up to the hype. The calamari was outstanding as was my Veal parmesan. The wine list was interesting and fair with pricing. This is a not so hidden gem which I will be sure to return to soon.

After reading all the hype, my friend and I decided we had to try Café 2825. While the food was excellent, the service was not. When we first arrived, the restaurant was relatively empty and service was okay. Then a table of 20 arrived, and it was downhill from there. We asked for a refill of iced tea, and that... More
