After spending a ridiculous amount on mediocre food all over the island this week, we were recommended to L'aragosta. Oh, heavens, yay! Price totally right on, the food fabulous, and our waiter, Ricardo, perfect. Great food (nutella pizza, salad, sea food, pasta, and spot on espresso) and attentive, friendly service made for a wonderful experience. He was great even with... More

Food was wonderful, service was great, price was excellent. Decor was OK, it could use a bit of a facelift. Otherwise truly enjoyed our meal and we would visit again.

I went to the front and told the hostess our party sized. We were then instructed to wait outside. Yes, like outside of the restaurant. As a hostess myself, I find this extremely rude. Then, as we were waiting outside, the hostess tells us another party came in so now our party's wait time went from five to fifteen minutes.... More

Some food was excellent and other entrees just weren't up to the traditional high standards, the lasagna was really outstanding. A bit pricey.

Monday, June 24, 2014 my husband and I had another great dinner at our favorite Brigantine Restaurant. Warm and friendly Owner, good service, fresh ingredients and pleasant atmosphere add to our always DELICIOUS meals. Being Italian I am very particular about Italian food, and I highly recommend L'aragosta!

I've been going here for years with my family, including two small kids. It's one of the few, true family-run Italian restaurant remaining on jersey shore. Food is authentic and delicious. Try the veal or squid-ink ravioli. Or the brocollini and sausage appetizer. Service is genuinely friendly and sincere. In fact I've enjoyed watching some of the waitstaff like Riccardo... More

Our appetizer was OK and served at 7:30 but we waited until 9:15 for our entrees to arrive. Our waitress apologized and explained the kitchen was understaffed only after we asked about the delay at... More
