The staff were very helpful as we coordinated 2 big takeout orders for a class I was doing. It was ready on time and the participant stated how good the food was. I appreciate the help.

Good place for a family meal. They have daily specials. the pizza and the pasta are very good and the house specialty. This is a family owned restaurant which is a great place for a family meal. My daughters like it before their running of the 1/2 marathon. Great choice in the PInes

I eat at Denova's several times a month and was only disappointed once in many visits. Service can vary but there is a core of servers who have been there a while and they do a great job. Pizza and pasta dishes are always great. Breakfast specials are good and my only complaint is their "no substitutions" rule.

While not the best Italian food in the area still a very nice family restaurant with your staple Italian dishes. Good pizza, salads and soups. I got take out and while I waited I sat at the bar. The bar has two craft breweries on tap and a good selection of bottled brews. The staff that I encountered is very... More

My soup was good and her soup according to her, was awful. I tried it and it really had no taste. Her salad had no taste either. The chicken was very... More

Excellent value, casual dining but very good! 6 adults and 3 little kids and they were very accommodating. Most of the group got the crab cake special and said it was the best they've had so far in Maryland. Definitely recommend for those who want to get away from the craziness of Ocean City. Food much better too.

On the recommendation from a friend on where we could take 10 people on a Saturday night in August in Ocean City for crab cakes we ended up at this little Italian Restaurant that seemed more of a pizza and sub joint from the look of it.
