Haven't been in a while so it was great to see the food and service has remained top notch. I choose a special that included a plate of mussels as an appetizer and steak pitziola with pasta - all for twenty bucks. All was great and so were the cocktails I enjoyed with my meal. Mostly frequented by locals and... More

I am torn between a 3 and 4 rating. First, the restaurant is inside an old house. It was very clean, and just a unique setting. It had old wood floors, stained glass, etc. The bar is on the small side but was great looking. There seemed to be a lot of regulars when we were there, all knowing the... More

Zucchini pancakes app. Enough... More

I have been driving by this restaurant many times over the years and finally decided to have dinner here with friends last night. I have to say, it was a great experience. Everyone was terrific, from the bartenders as well as the entire staff. They had a special menu for September which included an apetizer, entree, dessert and coffee. You... More

Great food and service. Manager checked on us to make sure everything was fine with our meal. Nice atmosphere and not very crowded for a Saturday night at the Jersey shore. Hamburgers are very tasty and cook to perfection. Reasonably price. I will return to try other dishes.

We arrived early before the restaurant began to fill, so the host, the owner, seated my wife and I at one of the restaurant's best tables located near... More

The food is excellent with many choices on the menu to please everyone. Had shrimp florentine last night and it was excellent. Many great flavors on the shrimp, and nicely... More
