Very positive experience

We came to LBI for vacation last week-our first time there. We felt like pizza, but in a nicer kind of place. This was exactly what we found here. It's a nice place with a full menu. We had a nice Antipasto and 2 kinds of pizza. I love good pizza. I hate bad or mediocre pizza. This was really... read more

We stopped in for dinner on a whim and found it to be a mixed experience. We had the chicken meatballs and broccoli rabe as apps. The chicken meatballs we terrific but the broccoli was meh. For our main courses we has chicken parm and the lump crab over pasta. The chicken parm was very good with a tasty marinara... More

Attached to the bakery and gift store, new construction, easy parking and highway entry. From what I have been told, it seems always booked during normal hours, but we ate late on a weekday night. Our party of three, was expanded to nine, then a half hour later another 7 arrived. Slide up another table, and bring on the Italian... More

at first you think it is a bit pricey like many places on the island - but when you consider the amount of the food, it is not unreasonable. Still family owned and operated, this is traditional Italian food and done pretty well. They have a large menu and typically have a number of specials. You can eat inside, on... More

My family has been coming to LBI for many years but we've never been to this restaurant. I found that many on Trip Advisor gave it good reviews. Unfortunately, my family of 4 was less than impressed. The tomato sauce was the most disappointing aspect. It was very salty and tasted like it was from a can. The chicken parm... More

My friends and I went to Calabria last night while in LBI. I called to see if resercations were needed and I was told no. We arrived to find out that they had no liquour license. I think it is something they should tell people when they call the restaurant. We went to get a bottle of wine and we... More

I can't believe on this small island that there can be a restaurant as good as Calabria. I have done a good amount of traveling and here is one of the top restaurants we have ever eaten it. Everything we ordered was completely fresh hot and full of distinctive flavor. You must try the fried artichokes (with a garlic dipping... More

If you want real authentic southern Italian food, this is the Place to go! Wonderful fresh fish and over the top tuna carpaccio! Great friendly service, even for a crowded Sat. night.

The bread was stale and the lettuce was limp. Of our 3 entrees, the calzone came out 15 minutes after the other entrees "it comes from a different kitchen" with a perfunctory apology "sorry".This is not an inexpensive restaurant - for 3 our check was $75 before tip. I asked to speak with the owner and she didn't bother to... More
