“South Jersey Pizza that Tastes Like it's from North Jersey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

I just came home from a week down in Lavallette, and we decided to get takeout from Lenny's on our second night. Their pizza tastes like it's directly from northern NJ -- delicious! We also ordered garlic bread, which has chunks of garlic and mozzarella baked right on top, and the Tuscan salad, which can be split between two or three people as an appetizer and is adorned with some incredibly lean prosciutto. We ate inside the restaurant on our last night down there (they also have outdoor seating). The atmosphere is very bright and clean. The service was great -- the hostess was very sweet and fixed our wobbly table, and our waitress was very attentive. It does get crowded on weekends, so if you're looking to eat after 6:00 or so, I would advise taking the food to go if you don't feel like waiting. It's also a BYOB, which is a plus.

“Good Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

Lenny's is a good place to go for take out pizza. It also has seating if you prefer to dine in. The pizza is one of the best in the area, which says a lot since there are loads of pizza places.
