They have a new "Chef from Italy". Didn't meet him personally, but the food is noticeably better. They also seemed to have worked on the service issues. Service was excellent Even the old standby eggplant parm dinner was better. Not that it was bad in the first place. Still BYOB which is a nice touch and back to bogo coupon... More

Who knew such amazing pizza could be found hidden in a strip mall location! I'd heard of its wonders and I left completely satisfied. The hostess/server was very kind and efficient. She took no notes and delivered our order perfectly. Even with the 55 extra toppings my sweetheart added to his pizza. She was attentive and we were never left... More

Bella Blanco Pizza Coal fired..wow..... The crust was perfect. The ricotta was even better. The flavor, the aroma, it looked just as good as it tasted if not better. Just a little light on the the quanity of basil. If it had a more I would have given it 6 stars. The arugula salad was ok. Fresh mozzarella and tomatoes,... More

Here's where you order take out or delivery. Good pizza and Italian food. Nearby in seaside park. You can also eat in. Got pizza, mussels and chicken parmesan.

We go here because it is convenient but still searching for a better go to pizza place. Had the meatball parm pizza and the mozzarella tasted awful. We do like the wings. had the meatball parm sub, was ok. Once we find a better place don't think we will be back unless looking for convenience. have only ordered take-out

We were visiting TR from NNJ and ate here with four other couples late afternoon on Valentine's Day. We may have gone overboard on the appetizers, which were excellent, because by the time dinner arrived we were stuffed. The fireworks calamari as well as the regular calamari were cooked just right and not rubbery. I didn't think I would like... More

Ordered a chicken parm hero and a plain pie. Bread on the hero was burnt and pie dough was raw. Unfortunately we ordered it for take out so we ate cereal instead.

The service is spotty and often the food is cold when delivered. My experiences were when they first opened. Haven't been back.

I went here on a Thursday night with my daughter. The place was practically empty. This Nino's was the one by the Ocean County Mall. I ordered a pizza (zucchini and prosciutto) and my daughter ordered a chicken and pesto sandwich. The pizza was horrible. I have never tasted dough so bland in my life. My daughter said the sandwich... More

Two years ago, I liked eating here and ordering takeout dinners. I don't anymore. I still enjoy the odd pizza. But I found the table grubby while eating in last year. Takeout dinners have been awful -- sloppily put together, overly microwaved, ingredients missing or not matching the advertised description. Bottom line? Stick with the pizza to avoid disappointment, and... More
