Fried Calamari to die for. Cooked perfectly and so tasty! Pizza is thin crust and amazing. We've been going here forever and it never disappoints! Snookie the owner/waitress is the best anticipating your every need! Must try Nunzio's but call for days open and time of business..

I have frequented Nunzio's since the 1950's, enjoying their food and ambiance whenever I am in the area. Remarkably, the restaurant has remained the same, when it could have easily expanded and added locations. But this family business chose to remain just that - serving the generations of local families in Long Branch and the surrounding communities. I highly recommend... More

I had not been in for dinner in a while so I decided to see if they were as good as last time. I decided to try the CHICKEN MURPHY this time and was pleasantly surprised. The portion was generous and made with mushrooms and onions, green peppers ,cherry peppers and real potato chunks not French fries like some places... More

First time here, I was excited to try them since the reviews here appear to be so positive. Maybe its me and I'm spoiled coming from north jersey. Ordered the pizza and its reminiscent of Kinchleys in Mahwah. Nice thin crust, flavorful sauce. The penne with vodka sauce consisted of over over cooked pasta (not al dente) and vodka sauce... More

Hubby wanted to go to Nunzio's based on memories, I was curious. We were treated like we'd been going there forever! Their pie has the absolute perfect crust, not thick/not thin. Even more surprised by the dinners they offer, eggplant parm is best I've ever had, my favorite is Pasta a la Nunzio. We virtually go once a week &... More

If you're looking for a restaurant that (IMO) serves the best thin crust pizza and traditional Italian entrées around, look no further than Nunzio's Pizzeria in Long Branch N.J. Warm family atmosphere, great people and delicious food made with 80+ years of experience at an affordable price. What more can you ask for!?

Sorry. I hate to bash a local restaurant. Been coming here since I was a kid. Just ordered pizza and was very disappointed. It was not cooked well at all. The crust was thin but the tomato sauce topping was almost raw, very thin and all of the toppings slid off the top of the pizza. I loved this place... More

A classic "throw back" restaurant. I just can't push the "excellent" button due in part to limited food choices eaten (just antipasto and pizza) and minor service issues. I arrived alone and noted that my husband and son would be there in 15 minutes. There were just three other tables with guests. I tried my best to flag the server... More

Have visited Nunzios numerous times over the years. Having transferred out of the area to the mid west my wife and I starved for good old East Coast Italian food. Especially baked Ziti. We dined there several weeks ago with another couple on one of our infrequent visits to the area. We had the bestus house salad, warm bread and... More
