I decided to take my wife out for a nice dinner. I have been here 4 times in the past and have never been disappointed with the quality of the food. This time we ordered the Calamari Fritti ($14) for app scallops della Casa ($36) and Rollatine di Vitello ($38) which were both specials. The calamari was fresh, not greasy,... More

Out of all of the different places to eat on LBI La Spiaggia is one of the very best. We have eaten there several times and have never been disappointed. It's a little hard to find but well worth searching for. The food has never failed to be amazing and the service is always impeccable. Highly recommended. BYO

We visited LBI in June 2014 and ate dinner here one evening. We were pleased to find an "early bird" menu good from 5-6pm. It included a three course meal all for $20-30pp and the restaurant was BYO wine. The food was some of the best Italian we have ever eaten. I had a grilled potrtobello mushroom salad, a bolognese...

The valet could not figure out how to park my standard shift car and the waiter was kind of odd. Food was pretty good.

Go 72 west. As you leave "The Island" behind , look on the right ,going slowly,just before the bridge begins. See on the right LaSpaiggia Restaurant ,a lowslung yellow building with white columns. You are going in opposite direction of most diners thus you avoid the traffic crawling South on LBI Blvd in search of an often not so good... More

My family and I were highly recommended to La Spiaggia as we are new homeowners to the area and appreciate wonderfully prepared, thoughtfully served cuisine. We have been to a few similarly priced restaurants nearby and found La Spiaggia to be operating at a much higher level than the rest. Our server was accommodating and completely versed in the cuisine... More

Impressive menu with nice range of selections but the tables are stacked one on top of another- I could easily reach over and sample my neighbors soup if I wanted to! Noise level high also and the prices are too high for what you get. Ambiance average -we were expecting some romantic setting like an Italian villa but the décor... More

A local dinning experience. Excellent staff and service. Very pricey for what you receive [portion size]. Small [Cosy inside]. BYOB. If you are price conscious then appetizers and desert are not an option.

LaSpiaggia has been a regular for our family for many years. Never a disappointment. Brothers Danny(kitchen) and Mark(dining room) keep the excellent staff on top of their game all of the time. The regular menu and specials are always interesting showing creativity and imagination. This team has it all together.
