My extended family was there at the end of July. There were 14 of us trying to find a place for dinner on Saturday evening without a reservation. Not an easy thing to do in LBI in July. After hearing of a 2 hour wait...More

We have been coming here for about 20 years. The quality has never been better. Portions are great for the price. It's a BYOB but they do sell a certain bottle of wine if you didn't bring anything. Chicken parmigiana is so good as is...More

The food was well prepared and came out quickly. The server was pleasant and the prices were great. Sitting on the porch on a nice night is a real bonus.

This is a terrific restaurant with very good food. We had the veal Marsala over penne and fried scallops (10!) with a side of penne with fresh marinara. Both were very good! Came with a side salad with house balsamic vinaigrette. Just the right amount,...More

We love coming here. The pasta is great. The staff is friendly and attentive. The owners got their game on daily here. Food is awesome. We sometimes have a wait due to it being so delicious but not always 😁 pizza is awesome also!

I'm tired of one-star reviews by morons like Alon (Lenny) Z who supposedly have a home on LBI but insist on pounding a place like Calabria's especially after Hurricane Sandy. 12 years ago, or so, we had a bad experience here and haven't been back...More

Our second visit this summer and two great meals! Service was friendly and attentive to our needs. Nice family friendly environment. The Calamari was delicious, but the Clams Casino were divine. Our meals included a salad which is a bonus on LBI since many restaurants...More

Yes, they do. They have GF Ravioli, GF Stuffed Shells and some pasta choices. However, they just closed for the season. They will reopen in May 2017. It is BYOB, but they also have wine on the premises.

They offer wine at a reasonable price but they do allow BYOB.
