This is a very nice Italian restaurant on the boardwalk in Asbury Park conveniently located across from Stone Pony. We ate up on the rooftop. The seafood was delicious. My hubby's escarole and bean soup was delicious, the papardelle bolognese was delicious. Service was good. Nice view of the ocean.

The food is very tasty - fresh, creative salads, brick oven pizza was delicious. Prices are a bit high ($25 for linguini with white clam sauce, $16 for a personal pizza). The wait was obnoxious (lots of empty tables for parties of four or five while we two had a 30 minute wait before being seated and then another 30... More

The food was sub par, the martinis were a 2x send back, we were told he'd take it back but then we were charged for it! Please Don't expect 3/4/5's star from this place.

Located on the boardwalk, Stella Marina offers alfresco or indoor dining. We dined in due to a torrential downpour. SM has 3 levels, including a rooftop- making quite spacious. There are many good options on the menu with prices that are more on the high side. Our waitress was very sweet and provided good service. Starters: Octopus spiedieni- very good... More

Nice table in the sun. Server came over immediately. Beverages delivered promptly. 3 types of fish and one chicken dish were ordered. All were quite good. No complaints. Restrooms downstairs would be nice though.

We stopped inhere on a whim on a Saturday while walking on the boardwalk for lunch. The place was pretty quiet and we were seated right away. The place is very nice inside and has two floors and a lovely outdoor rooftop deck with amazing views of the ocean. The food was good. Basic Italian dishes. The bread and olive... More

Went here with my bf on a whim. GREAT food! A bit pricey but the quality and amount of food makes up for it. My only complaint is that our service lacked a bit and it seemed more than once we were forgotten. Other than that it was great.

The Stella Marina restaurant is an ideal location to dine in the spring, summer and fall. The food is good and the décor welcoming. If the weather is nice dine outside and enjoy the boardwalk and ocean view!
