So Good!

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.

I've been going to LBI for 30 years and tried this place for the first time last week at the suggestion of friends. We were a large group and the service was very good. The pasta dishes we ordered were all well seasoned, cooked to perfection and delicious. I can't wait to go back and try the tortellini.

We have ordered many different menu items as well as chef's specials and have never been disappointed! Delicious desserts and cappuchino bring your dining experience full circle.

My family and I have been patronizing La Spiaggia since 1994 and have always raved to our friends and relatives about the excellent food and impeccable service. It is one thing to get a good meal at a restaurant but it is rare to find consistency for this level of quality for 20 yrs! My wife and I had them... More

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, for me, the mark of a fine... More
