Ordered take out from this restaurant twice during a weeklong family vacation to the beach. First night was a pizza order and the food was great. Next time was a pasta order. Portions were very generous and 4 pasta dinners were shared easily by 6 people. Favorite dishes were the baked ziti and the garlic and oil pasta. Delicious food.... More

We've been here a couple of times. The food is phenomenal. Menu offers something for everybody. Bring your own wine / beer.

Our waitress was very nice. The garlic knots were good, as was the Caesar salad. It seemed like we waited a long time for our food, refills on water, and the check. We ordered the buffalo chicken pizza which did not taste like any buffalo sauce we had ever had. When we asked the waitress about it, she told us... More

There must be an issue getting good service people that are trained properly in this area. We went for a pizza lunch which was very good. Then we went for dinner with high expectations. Food was OK but my dinner came out 15 minutes after my husband's. Because of limited choices in the area it is always busy.

I just returned from a visit to the Jersey shore and wanted to let people know about the dinner my family and I had. The place was highly recommended and we decided to give it a try. Honestly all of the food was pretty average, and extremely expensive for what we received. Everything was just average, everyone at our table... More

Good bread and food, but service was a bit slow. I would recommend any of the pasta dishes as have not yet tried the pizza.

We rented a house on the shore and the owners recommended Lenny's for dinner. We had the Chicken Elizabeth, which was excellent and a Pizza that I understand was very good as well. The 2 year old at our table was served early which we appreciated! When we sat down I wanted to order wine, but was quickly told it... More

Once again I remember why we don't order from Lenny's during the summer. Their to-go service stinks. They can't predict when your order might be ready. We were told 1 hr 25 minutes, and it's now 2 hours 10 minutes. Their food isn't that good and now they don't even answer the phone.

I usually get pizza from here a few times every summer. It's good, not much more to say. I guess this is a pizza only review as I haven't really tried the rest of their menu, although they do have a full Italian menu and dine-in as well as takeout and delivery. It's always satisfying, the slices are pretty large,... More
