My husband and I both enjoyed veal dishes. The veal was extremely tender and flavorful. The portions were very generous and the food quality was excellent. I recommend the veal francese and my husband enjoyed the veal saltimboca. The fresh hot bread was delicious too!

Just another mediocre restaurant in a sea of mediocre restaurants on LBI. You pretty much know what you're in for when that chilled salad with the wilted iceberg and the cherry tomato shows up.
