Stopped in for lunch which was amazing, seriously great food. We had salmon encrusted with pecans, incredible caprice app equally as delicious. Will definitely be back. Well had a very nice server but everything took forever, down to getting the check, 30 mins is too long.

Food good, service not so. At the boardwalk desk we were invited to step inside where the hostess would seat us as we did not want to sit outside. No hostess to be seen, nobody approached or even acknowledged us. I had to signal to a waiter that we needed a table for two. He disappeared and reappeared with two... More

We were celebrating my friends 50th birthday all down for a girl's weekend. First off, it took over 20 min to get our drinks (and be prepared if you order a martini it will come in a wine glass with no explanation), and over an hour to get anything to eat! We called the manager over, explained everything which she... More

MAYBE the Cetrullo family who owns this restaurant should spend a more time here to train the staff! we had a reservation for dinner, arrived at the restaurant, asked for outside, and were told we had a few minute wait. we get called to our table-INSIDE?...

My first night down at the shore for vacation, and we start in Asbury. This restaurant sits in a new part of boardwalk with a few other nice restaurants as well. We were seated immediately in a nice spot outside on the boardwalk. Service was good and efficient. I had a mushroom ravioli that was quite good. Good chunks of... More

Service was terrible. Waitress took order and did not return for another hour. Asked 2 busboys to find her to finish serving - did not return. Other diners in our area had same service. Food was average. Will not return

Hostess on boardwalk told us hour wait for outside. Went to hostess stand in front and were immediately sat outside upstairs. View very nice. Server was nice but not quick or attentive. Wanted to order appetizer while we looked over menu and was told no. Everything had to go in at once in order to keep flow going. What? pasta... More

I don't know what happened, but even food tasted better on my last visit. The service was ok. One of the wait staff kept go around in circles around us, in & out of the restaurant to keep busy, bit distracting and annoying ....My husband was certainly not trilled about the food especially for the price.....I remember this place being...

I've been several times over the last few years and their food is average at best. Service was very slow - would not go again for that price.

Great place to have lunch on the Asbury Park Boardwalk. The pizza was made with fresh ingredients and felt like Naples while eating the very unique Puttanesca Pizza with black olives, anchovies and capers. We also had the Classic Pizza: light and tasty.
