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.

Went there again with a new couple and they enjoyed it as as much as we did. Everything was great from the food to the service to the ambience only thing that was missing was Sunday sauce and everybody is asking for it. Will definitely go back again

Food was excellent as was the service. Party of 6 and they did a fine job serving us and caring for our demanding group. I had the lobster fridiavlo and it was excellent.

On this night we were a party of four. Two of us had the mahi mahi special. The accompanying sauce was incredible. The other two selections were Osso bucco and Bolognese -... More

Went with a party of 5 and everything was great. Service was very nice although they never opened the white wine. We opened it ourselves and then they put it in ice across from us were we could not reach it. Then they put someone else's wine in the same bucket! Not impressed with that but all else was good....

Been going here for years and they rarely disappoint. Food is always good and the service always attentive. Prices have gone up over the years faster than the average restaurant but the quality is there.

This has been a great summer on LBI and the 'discovery' of this restaurant was a nice end to the season. Wonderful service, superb food, good relaxing and pleasant vibe, definitely will return here again.
