We've been quite a few restaurants on the island this year, and our meal tonight was one of the best meals we've had. My wife had the veal saltambooca, which was outstanding, the veal was thinly cut with a exceptional tasty gravy. My shrimp oreganato was excellent as well. The service was outstanding, with the courses separated just right. Would... More

My wife and I had dinner at La Spiaggia last week. We both had the lobster tail special. A large (12oz.) tail grilled perfectly, topped with arugula, grilled peaches, grilled onions and a vinaigrette. A great meld of flavors. Truly, the best dinner we have had all summer. The wait staff is professional, friendly, and attentive. The experience was so... More

I had the rack of lamb and my husband has the Cioppino and everything was wonderful. The bread and warm garlic oil was an excellent start and loved the beat salad. They have a nice early bird menu too. We will be back.

They always take you on time for your reservation. The staff is superb. They are polite, enthusiastic and attentive. The owner visits tables to check on you. The atmosphere is quiet even though the restaurant was full. The farfalle with pesto was excellent, I added shrimp to mine. My husband had the veal chop parmigiana and loved it. If you... More

Mark and brother Dan Stragapede have been the proprietors of La Spiaggia for more than Twenty years. Restaurants on LBI come and go but these brothers are here to stay. The reason the finest Italian and Continental food on the Island. Sunday Sauce like Grandma made, Veal Milanese, New Zealand Rack of Lamb are just some of the Regular menu... More

This bring your own bottle restaurant is a lovely spot with authentic Italian cuisine and terrific seafood. The only disappointment was that they were out of baked clam appetizer the night we visited. The staff is attentive and friendly (not to mention VERY good looking)! We will definitely visit again.

First time here. Service was excellent. Flexibility of menu also outstanding. Able to work with my allergies and still deliver interesting and good dinner. I had a shrimp and crabmeat app and salmon for dinner. Laurie enjoyed her champaign shrimp very much. First time she's tried shrimp for a while as she's not a fish/seafood fan. So that's ask or...
