Among our limited choices in Toms River for good food with a nice atmosphere, Cafe Italia is one of my favorites. A very extensive menu, great sized portions, and a lot of bang for your buck. My favorites are their veal dishes - marsala or parmesean. By far, my absolute favorite of theirs is something they give you a couple... More

I was in for an early dinner, so had the place nearly to myself! First impression was like.... OH, NICE!. White table cloths & nicely spaced tables made an awesome impression. In spite of dining alone (women are sometimes ignored), I was waited on quickly and courteously. I ordered Lasagne (it looked different - like cut or rolled in 3... More

We have been to Cafe Italia several times over the past few years, including a private birthday party. The food used to be much better. I recently had the cavatelli and broccoli which had no flavor and minimal garlic. The waiter seeemed distracted. The place could use a make over, and maybe a new menu.

This is one of those places that you can just count on. Best Italian food in the area. Their take out pizza is great. Our favorite is the focaccia with fresh mozzarella- there's just nothing else like it! Delicious crust and sauce, and a pie is huge so we love enjoying the leftovers later. We decided recently to eat in... More

Love this place!! Come here at least twice a summer and for day trips in the winter when I check out my family's summer home, service is great! Professional waiters well kept and properly trained, generous size meals correctly priced and most importantly very delicious! Will always come back.

Very nice atmosphere and great service. Many diverse daily specials. My husband had the veal chop special which he said was fair, but he said the calamari appetizer was excellent. I had the red snapper special- I asked for no sauce and they were able to accommodate my request...it was delicious. Did not have dessert. Portions are generous, come with... More

First time visitor....August 25th..... with a friend of mine who lives in Toms River and has been to this establishment before, so she recommended it. Salad way too acidic.....made the greens wishy/washy/limp......why not place oil/vinegar bottles on table so that the customer can decide how much of each to place on their salad.....not leave it up to the staff. I... More

A very pleasant dining experience. They were able to accommodate our friend who is wheelchair bound. The menu is quite extensive with every variety of Italian food. We all enjoyed our meals, and there was plenty to bring home. BYOB.

The menu is extensive and all dishes are well prepared and tasty. Portions are generous and prices are appropriate. They also make very good pizza which you can get to go (you can do so with their regular menu as well).

We had a great experience. It is definitely one of the nicest places in Toms River to eat. We have 11 month old twins and finding a place to eat with them is challenging. They made us feel welcome and were very accommodating with the babies. The staff was friendly and the owner was very personable. I felt like we... More
