Great service. Excellent appetizers - Eggplant Rollatini and Trentino Salad and main dishes (my friend had pasta and I had Filet Mignon). We were both very happy with our selections and the waiter steered us in the right direction. Overall, a lovely farewell to the beach!

went back to La Spiaggia for the 5th time this season and had another great meal. We were with another couple who usually go to a different restaurant and they were duly impressed. The only word they could use was outstanding. The service is great, the owner/maitre'd is very personable and waiters couldn't be nicer. The food was absolutely excellent.... More

Our group of 10 volunteers from the Barnegat Light Museum met for an end of season dinner recently. We enjoyed having our own room apart from the main dining area and were greeted warmly by owner & staff. As we arrived early, we ordered from the early bird menu which promised, but fell short on many dishes, a pleasing meal.... More

Great food, excellent service and attentive owner/maitre'd. We are regulars and have never had a bad meal or bad experience at this recently redecorated restaurant. Veal is one of their best selections but so is the seafood fra diavolo. Desserts are great also.

For dinner we had a wonderful fish dish, clams and pasta, veal scaloppini and scallops with pesto linguini (a special) ~ all dishes were perfectly prepared. Our dinner... More

After being redone after "Sandy", La Spiaggia opened for the season two weeks ago. My husband and I had dinner there this past Saturday night and both of us had one of the best meals in memory. The decor is soft "Tuscany", warm and inviting. The staff is exceptional...attentive but not hovering. The menu, although not large-- has something for... More

Nicely rebuilt and refurbished after being flooded during Hurricane Sandy the restaurant has now reopened. Nice, varied menu but nothing out of the ordinary. Good, fresh ingredients (maybe because it was only the 2nd night they were open). decent portions although the salads were a bit skimpy. Very good desserts especially the chocolate volcano cake. Decent knowlegeable service, but not... More

Thank for dining with us on our opening weekend. We are extremely happy to have reopened after suffering extensive damage due to Superstorm Sandy in 2012. We pride ourselves in using only the freshest, top quality ingredients prepared with utmost care and consideration. Although the cost of goods and services have increased significantly since 2012, our menu prices have remained... More

We arrived early for our reservation and were seated promptly. Service was fairly good. The bread was served with a homemade hummus and roasted garlic in olive oil. This may have been our favorite part though I wished the olive oil was extra virgin rather than regular. Otherwise delicious. The dinner menu overall seemed uneventful. Most of the pasta dishes...
