Had reservations. Apparently that means you still wait and wait and wait in the pizza parlor for your restaurant table. Manager totally not in control of dining room.

One thing the Jersey Shore has plenty of is basic Italian restaurants...in particular Italian restaurants that are restaurant/pizza joint combos. MonAlyssa is one of those places. A place where the restaurant menu is clearly a step above pizza joint, but the service, atmosphere and mentality has not risen above pizza-in-a-box countertop service. Our recent experience went like this. - Arrive... More

Try the sweet mussels marinara! Overall we like the restaurant and food is great- only negative experience was being served dinner in the pizzeria due to crowd.

We have dined at this restaurant monthly with several other couples for the past year. During that time, unfortunately, this restaurant has gone downhill in almost every area. Portion sizes are much smaller, service is very slow, and food is just not very good anymore. Prices are still reasonable, but not worth it for a sub par meal and service.... More

We enjoy dining here for dinner. We try to go on the weekends but reservations are a must! BYOB. The place is small but comfortable and there is a guitarist who plays background music on Fridays. The Flounder Francaise is delicious. They do have Gluten-free options with the pasta.
