Comfortable place to celebrate a special occasion

We had a dinner party here for a birthday and sat outside under the canopy. The indoor dining area reminds me of some good Italian local eateries on Long Island because it is warm and cozy with the neighborhood "feel" to it. The menu has some classic Italian specialties as well as some daily... read more

We go several times during the month and the food is ALWAYS good - service is GREAT and for what looks like a fine dining restaurant - it is very casual. Don't be scared off by the white table clothes! It is just a really nice place with great food! Everything from pizza to steak! Shrimp pizza and the pasta... More

A group of 5 of us went for dinner. Bread brought to the table was soft and warm with olive oil. Salads were very good, with Caesar salad having some peppercorn kick to the dressing. All of our entrees were large and very hot when they came out. Quality and quantity were excellent. Definitely need to stop here for pasta... More

I was here again a few nights ago and must praise their consistently good pizza - especially the "Old-Fashioned Pies". The leftovers heat up well, too, just in case your eyes were bigger than your tummy.

Atmosphere is memorable although service & food were both mediocre. Seemed the entire waitstaff was struggling--several specials were out from the dinner specials menu. My daughter's order was wrong and everyone was finished eating by the time her entree arrived. Had a small pizza as an appetizer that was average at best.

We ordered take-out from TJs. The order was ready when we arrived to pick it up. The wait staff was pleasant and efficient. The food was hot and smelled wonderful. During the trip home, we could smell the richness of the food. We had clams as an appetizer. The flavor of the clams and the sauce was delightful. With the... More

This is one of our favourite restaurants on Gulf Blvd. The service is great and the food especially good. We have the asparagus and shrimp pizza which is delicious. We have had other dishes and all are equally fabulous. Pasta and Alfredo are my husbands favourite foods and TJ's does these very well. We just love it.

Looking for a light dinner we stopped in here for a pizza. After seeing the menu we tried an appetizer of fried ravioli, GREAT, should be an entree. They have a large variety of pizza combinations and many other items on the menu. Will stop back if ever in the area.
