The menu is diverse w classic Italian, their own creations and seafood with an Italian inclusion. The service is always excellent and Peter prides himself on his award winning chowders both of which are great. We have eaten there at least a dozen times over the years. Reservations are a necessity and need to be made at least a week... More

I have been coming to LBI for about 25+ years and just found this place. I always thought it was an old restaurant with Italian dinners. When you are on the coast and in vacation Italian food just seems like something you could get at home. This is now the farthest thing from my mind. The Italian meals are mostly... More

The Resturant (tables very close together) very attractive and immaculate . The pasta perfectly cooked and the clam sauce amazing. The house salad tasty but... More

I had the Veal Chesapeake which was very good, while my husband had a seafood dish that he total enjoyed. He said there was a lot of fish and it was so tasty that he wants to go back next... More

We had intentionally avoided eating here for several years because our last meals were so bad. Friends had advised us that it had improved. They were wrong. The oysters were not fresh. The salad was cold and refrigerated. My wife's eggplant was awful. My chicken and scallops were passable. There are several much better alternatives. Try those. Avoid this one.... More

For more than 10 straight years, Stefano's has been our No. 1 dining destination when on LBI. An Italian menu with a large emphasis on fresh seafood, there is something here for everyone. Off season we have even driven down from north NJ for an afternoon on LBI and dinner at Stefano's. When our kids were pre-teens and older, they... More

If you're looking for "authentic" Italian on the island, look no further. We went based on friend's recommendation & winning best clam chowder 3 years in a row! The soup did not disappoint. Thick, creamy w/lots of clams & not too many potatoes. I had veal piccata & my wife had a soft-shell crab special. Of six (6) meals out... More

We absolutely love this place and is either #1 or #2 in our book. You have to make reservations and believe it or not they hold true to the time of your reservation. We have been there several times year after year and the quality is superb. THIS IS MUST STOP FOR ALL FOODIES!!!
