Try any of the veal you will love it!

This BYOB is worth the visit! We had a great Italian meal and loved the veal parm! But the best was the desert - lemoncello cake with fresh strawberries and whipped cream! Awesome!

We were very happy with our meals! The portions where on the small side but they were prepared perfectly. The service was 5 star. I highly recommend this restaraunt.

Great food and pleasant atmosphere. Godmother's is always on our list of top choices when we visit Cape May. Food is consistently good backed by great service. We have enjoyed some excellent specials along with great menu choices.

We go annually to Cape May. We find Godmother's consistent. Not like NYC restaurants, but always fine. The food is a little heavy, all in our family needed Tums overnight, but we will still go back. BYOB.
