Good food and service

Been going here for years and they rarely disappoint. Food is always good and the service always attentive. Prices have gone up over the years faster than the average restaurant but the quality is there.

Met some friends from south Jersey for dinner. We were looking for a midway point restaurant and selected La Spiaggia. Our first visit to La Spiaggia and we will definitely return. Great BYOB. Excellent food and service. Sean was our waiter for the evening and he did everything possible to make our evening something special. He even put together a... More

This has been a great summer on LBI and the 'discovery' of this restaurant was a nice end to the season. Wonderful service, superb food, good relaxing and pleasant vibe, definitely will return here again.

30 Years of traveling to LBI and suddenly I uncovered a gem! This is an excellent Northern Italian restaurant. The food was exceptional - I mean exceptional. My main course was a salmon dish accompanied by delicious polenta fries and the best combination of veggies and seasoning. The only small downfall was the 1 hour wait between the appetizer and...

Dined once again at this very fine Italian restaurant. Have been dining here for the last 5 years I have vacationed on LBI. The owner is always very attentive to his customers and the food is always top quality, especially the Osso Bucco when it is offered as a special. Never disappointed. It can get very noisy on Fri and... More

This was a great italian restaurant. I had both a great appetizer and entree. I had the eggplant for an appetizer which was delicious. My entree was the veal without the ham. It was fantastic. I do not usually get excited about the food and I was after this dinner. Would go back and would recommend to friends and family.

We have always enjoyed our dining experience at La Spiaggia, with their continental menu, superb service and quiet atmosphere--what happened to our special place on LBI. The menu reads like any other Italian restaurant in the area, nothing special anymore. Salads were so-o-o over-dressed and enormous (we should have been made aware of size and split one), veal marsala and... More

Wow, we lucked out with this one. Such good food. Amazing Arugula, Watermelon and Feta Cheese Salad, great Burrata appetizer and shrimp dish with prosciutto in an amazing cream sauce. Cozy atmosphere.

We come here every year while we are down here for a week. Best Italian food on LBI, best service on LBI! It's a bring your own, but they bring their best. If you want really good food at a really good restaurant it will not disappoint. The lasagna is good here actually so is everything. It's off the island... More
