This is a truly fantastic Italian restaurant located right on the boardwalk. We go there as often as possible. I have never had a meal that was not absolutely delicious. The staff and servers are excellent!

Went on a weekday evening since two tries on securing a Saturday reservation failed. Nice place, good food, but expect 30+ an entree, no salad included, and the bread, especially for an Italian restaurant...lets just say they should get a different supplier Now, tho I did enjoy my meal, I will say they are really all about the money.

Located on the Asbury Park boardwalk, Stella Marina is a great place to get dinner. We had a large party that they were happy to accommodate, and the food was great to boot! I definitely would come back here during the nicer months before the summer folks come back!

It was a rainy cold night but inside was warming cozy, even seated by the window. I can only imagine how nice it would be in summer watching the ocean. They were offering a three course dinner for restaurant week, but it seemed like a lot of food so most of us opted to order off the menu. The portions... More

Great boardwalk location with outside tables. Cute, efficient hostess. Good wine and beer selection and a tasty Bloody Mary lubricated the dinner. Best Oysters, yum! Very good Scallop and Octopus appetizers, good Figi Pizzata and tasty Veal. It was too late for coffee, but cups going past had a perfect, fragrant aroma. The dessert Zabaglione (sp?) was amazing. The only... More

Wow. We had an amazing meal. The food was fresh and cooked perfectly. We enjoyed a cheeses plate, spaghetti beet salad. For dessert we had affogato and tiramisu, both were wonderful. Did I mention the ocean front view?

Great service, atmosphere and food! Very popular so make reservations or expect to wait. Upstairs is a nice bar area overlooking the ocean but again plan to wait or stand because this place is always busy!

Went here for a family party. The place is right on the boardwalk with a great view. The restaurant had nice decorations. Lots of dust on chandelier and other decorations. Service was good. Bar looked nice. That was the good. Place was very noisy. Food was average at best. Prices were high for fancy food that wasn't good. The fried... More
