Friendly, courteous staff. This is one of the top restaurants on LBI and if you like Italian food you will not be disappointed. The chef makes his ricotta fresh and has mastered the technique. It is smooth and creamy. You will appreciate it in whatever dish you order. Pasta al dente. Great bread... read more

I have been going here for years and my guests and I are never let down. I always try something new and it is always delicious. The filets are very tender, juicy, and overall the best filet I have ever had. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a delicious meal and an elegant night. Don't for its... More

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
