Great Italian restaurant in Sea Isle City, NJ. My wife, son and daughter in law enjoyed a fantastic dining experience Monday evening June 30th 2014. It started with a very warm Hostess greeting as we walked into the restaurant. Once seated, our waitress, Jenna, introduced herself which was the beginning of the five star service. Jenna was very friendly and... More

There are lots af good seafood joints and pizza and tourist fare in Sea Isle, but if you want fine dining... This is it, but still dress casual. Table cloths, good service, gorgeous menu with lots of Italian classics. Risotto, lasagna, piccata, etc. I had their veal special in a wine sauce with shrimp, veggies on the side . Excellent....

Delicious meal and lively atmosphere. We sat outside, the dining room was a bit loud. Portions were generous. Only complaint was it was a bit overpriced but average for the area.

We went to the one in Strathmere for restaurant week! We started with mussels and clams in a white sauce and antipasto for apps! Next we had a delicious Caesars salad! And dipping their yummy bread in the white sauce is a must! Our waiter was just top notch! The main course was lump crab over angel hair and Veal... More

Delicious Italian at the shore! We were told to visit by a massage therapist and she was right. I had the veal parm and my boyfriend had the cavatelli bolanese....both were excellent. It's a byob so of course there was an excellent selection of wine! ; )

This place handles larger parties well, although the tables are jammed in so close together that it makes conversation difficult and any movement impossible. The food was above-average, service was average, prices are on the high side. We would return.

Usually jammed packed, noisy and busy. Normally a turn off, but this place is different. It is almost festive. Conscientious waitstaff, great menu and an atmosphere of merriment make this a great night out. BYO and join the party!

We really enjoyed dining here this past weekend! Table of four, we were glad to be sat on the side, there were a lot of large parties. Our server was great. We were never rushed. She paced our order perfectly. Every dish was spectacular! Calamari friti was crispy light and hot! Super tender too! The sautéed/steamed clams were perfect. We... More

Based on first impressions, wasn't expecting much. Having arrived on time for our reservation on a very busy, cold, Saturday night, we had to wait only a few minutes by the front door, which was kind of uncomfortable as there is very little room to wait. Upon being escorted to our table, there wasn't much room to navigate. Once we... More
