We ate here last night, there 9 in our group. We were welcomed by the friendly staff and treated like we were their friends. The atmosphere is very Italian, clean and bright. The food was excellent and we never felt rushed. I would highly recommend you try eating here, you will not be disappointed.

Almost a 5 star, but at least 4.5. We were a party of 3 and from the bread and salad that was included with our entrees, the presentation and preparation of the food, plus the quantity was excellent. We tried a couple of desserts and enjoyed them thoroughly as well. Service was very good and the total bill (no alcohol... More

We have eaten here many times and never disappointed. I feel it's a little 'classier' than most local restaurants. They always have daily specials which are different than the menu selections. The dinners are reasonably priced and it's a BYOB.

Our family gathered for a memorial lunch for a family member of ours during the lunch hour. We had about 30+ people in our party. The food, and atmosphere were good. I had the veal, and my wife had the chicken with red sauce and asparagus. We really liked the service. Everyone was very accommodating and friendly. The best part... More

Went here on a Friday with a party of 14. All of us had great, great food. Being that we were a group, they gave us a flat rate with tip and tax included. Very inexpensive and so worth the money. We started with the best focaccia and salad, then choices of chicken parm, veal parm, eggplant rollatini or tilapia.... More

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
