“Not Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Be aware. Luke Palladino's Seasonal Italian is moving to a new location near the current location. This location is now called LP Steak. It's Luke's steakhouse. If you're going there for Italian food you'll be greatly dissapointed. We were not told that the menu had changed when we made our reservation and we were very dissapointed. We're looking forward to Luke's new place in Linwood, NJ which is about a mile from his steak place.
The steaks were great, the sides were creative and the service was very friendly.
We just had our hearts set on his Italian food!

“Always a great meal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

My wife and I have been many times- we have always been wowed. It's small, intimate and each dish is prepared with great care. Most dishes are seasonal so I won't go into great detail about all the meals we've had there. The one thing I will say is to be mindful of when you go. if you go in the summer on the weekend you'll be eating with a crowd. i'd recommend going mid week in the off season when you can relax and have a quiet delicious meal. make a reservation!

“An Amazing Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Not your typical Jersey Shore experience. Reservation process is not the easiest as its a small place so you must confirm with a credit card and seating is limited to 3 seatings. Perfectly understandable due to the limited seating in the small Dining room. A very unique service experience as a limited staff efficiently takes care of diners swiftly without making you feel rushed. The open kitchen allows you to peak as chefs prepare your dinner, you can also see Chef Luke cooking or walking through the dining room. The food is fantastic! I have been 4 times this past summer and reccomend starting with the Prosciutto wrapped breadsticks dipped in truffle butter. I enjoyed the mushroom crespelle, various pasta entrees and the whole fish was also great. Just heard they are moving locations and opening a new concept at this original location. I can wait to return and try the new menu.

“So dissappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

My friend and I have been trying to get to this restaurant for over 3 years. We finally got there, only to be extremely disappointed! We ordered a soft shell crab pasta dish, which was one of the evening's specials; it was so poor, that we ended up sending it back. The crab was water-logged, and tasted fishy. It seemed like it was put right in with the pasta water to cook, rather than being sautéed on its own. The pasta was sticky. The dish was also very salty. The waiter kindly offered to replace it, so we selected the wild mushroom ragu dish. Rather than a ragu, it was sautéed mushrooms over the pasta, with very little flavor. For our main course, my friend had the Italian seafood mixed grill. All of the fish in this dish was well cooked; however, the plating looked like I had done it, which is not saying much. I had the fish of the day which was grouper; the presentation of this was impressive, but the fish had been over cooked and was dry.
The waiter had suggested that we share a pasta dish for our second course; however, they do not split the serving for you, but instead bring 1 bowl of pasta for you to split yourselves. We also had to ask for clean plates after our appetizer, to put our pasta on.
We had a 5 o'clock reservation, so we thought perhaps this is why our meal wasn't up to par. We consider giving it a second chance, booking far enough in advance to select a later seating. But at the end of our meal, we wished we had opted to go to Steve and Cookies instead, where meals are always wonderful.....

“Nice place for dinner on a special occasion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Excellent appetizers and dessert; meal was very good. This place is rather small and it can get loud when it's full, but the food makes it worth visiting!
