I have been to Cerrato's multiple times and have had a good experience every time. The food is consistently good and the service is excellent. They have a great singer who performs everything from Sinatra to "Under the Boardwalk". It is not uncommon to see tables all singing along with the performer. It is a BYOB so the cost is... More

We went last night and it started out okay with fried calamari and a basil/parsley pesto to dip our bread it. The entrees were terrible. My husband said his beef (the sunday gravy special) was tough although he ate it anyway. I had shrimp scampi with broccoli and linguine. The linguine was over-cooked and there was no scampi sauce, just... More

Last Sunday, 13 of us family members met for an evening of great food, conversation and fun. We shared many different appetizers, all terrific. Our entrees ranged throughout the regular and the "gravy" menus - everyone loved their selections. The service was so friendly and accommodating, the more than 3 hours we spent was just delightful. The owner stopped by... More

We've lived at the shore now for a little over a year. We've tried multiple different Italian Restaurants and this was the next one. We were very disappointed. I ordered Chicken Parm and he ordered Penne Vodka with grilled chicken and broccoli so we could both share our entrees. My chicken parm was absolutely nothing special. The sauce tasted like... More

Saturday night the music reminds us of a supper club, staff is extremely attentive but the food reminded me of a family meal away from home. This is Bradley's best locals who understand the importance of supporting a corner place that keeps their clients happy. No one rushes, no one has a hard time hearing the music, and yes many... More

Tried Cerrato's for a second time. Our last visit was in 2011 (review previously posted). Nothing much has changed. Hoping for the better. Our dinners were just fair. Both were small portions, and boring! Nothing to write home about at all! Only two good things to note. Our server was attentive, and friendly. The house salad dressing is good. Now... More

The food was not inexpensive but yet 2 of the 4 people in my party were disappointed in the meal. The ravioli with lobster and shrimp was just fair and the veal saltimbocca was a little tough and an extremely small portion. It couldn't have been more than an ounce and a half of veal. The salad was poor and... More

We visited Cerrato's this past Sunday at the recommendation of a couple we met at another establishment. What a great recommendation it was. Cerrato's serves one of the best meals in the area. We both ordered from their Sunday "Gravy" menu. It was absolutely awesome food. The atmosphere is very pleasant. The service was slightly slow but not bad. They... More

We ate here with a big party. One of the entrees was sent back and something else was ordered to replace it (not the right dish). At the end of the meal that dish was still on the bill. We asked for it to be taken off and the waiter said the owner wanted to see one of us in... More
