San Marzano is off the main road, but worth going to. The eggplant was great with plenty for another meal. We also loved the bread and asked to take the leftovers home, instead the waitress gave us a fresh loaf as she said there were...More

This visit was not as good as the last time two years ago. Certain items were excellent, but others were disappointing. Overall, the flavors were decent, but my mom’s seafood risotto was a huge disappointment— the shrimp were extremely rubbery — it turns out that...More

We thoroughly enjoy going to San Marzano. The staff is great and the food is delicious. My husband especially loves the Sunday gravy meal with meatballs and sausage. The bread is delicious and at times they give you a loaf to take home.

The simple food was ok, pizza was fine and the ravioli was acceptable. Is seafood risotto, which was watery and tasteless and the seafood like rubber. My wife’s linguine was equally bland. The server was good, but we paid far too much for mediocre food.

Sauteed calamari and scungilli fra diavalo, grilled octopus, the warm bread, the rather large Roman salad... worth every ounce of effort to hunt this place down in Freehold
