Consistently Good!!

We are regulars to the resturant and have never had a bad meal!!! The food -service and overall experience is always outstanding. This is a BYOB establishment and tends to be a little more expensive then the normal resturant but it is worth it!!

Little did we know (6 of us) when trying to find a restaurant our last night on LBI, that we would be blown away! From the moment we entered, there was not one flaw - service, food, presentation - all were superb! My husband and our one friend had the 18 oz. veal chop - they nearly licked their plates... More

Last week my husband, brother and I had dinner at La Spiaggia. We have eaten at this restaurant a few times and have always been satisfied. My husband ordered the mussels and they were very small and dried out. He also ordered the spaghetti with white clam sauce. The dish was very salty and the clams were tough. There is... More

This was our first time here. The food was spectacular. The penne with their "Sunday sauce" a delicious tomatoe sauce along with meatballs, Italian sausage and soft pieces of braised pork was about the best I have ever had. My wife ordered the Oregonata shrimp over penne(we substituted for the linguine) The shrimp were perfectly cooked and topped with a... More

From the moment you pull into the driveway where a polite young man valets your car, you are treated like royalty. La Spiaggia is our favorite restaurant on LBI. Sean, the Maitre de, will remember you on just your second visit. All the wait staff are impeccably trained, congenial, and attentive. The food is exceptional. The early bird special is... More

Have not been disappointed here yet. From the roasted garlic served with the bread, to eggplant rollatini and tortoni and coffee for dessert, La Spiaggia can't be beat, especially if you go for the early bird.You get the aforementioned garlic and bread, choice of appetizer, entree, dessert and coffee for one price, depending on the entree you select.

We ate here recently with a party of 7, including 2 children. The food was delicious, nicely presented. The wait staff was professional but not stuffy. I have to be careful of gluten, and the waiter was very helpful in suggesting what I could eat. The dining room is narrow but nicely decorated, and there is a private room. After... More

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
