Food is always on point, service excellent. Ambiance is sub par. Very convenient, close to home, and usually not a long wait for a table.

We reserved a table for 22 people and I just have to say how impressed I was with the service. In addition to the regular menu, they offer an expansive list of specials and our waitress announced every one with out looking at any notes. The specials were all awesome. We sampled many appetizers and they were very good as... More

This is a very good restaurant. Food was mostly delicious, with a few standouts and a few disappointments. The caprese salad with homemade buffalo mozzarella was among the best I've ever tasted! Delicious steaks, veal and chicken dishes. Caesar salad had very thick dressing and was nothing special. Baked clams just "ok". Service was very good as well. Friendly and... More

The food here was definitely not worth eating let alone the price. Yes with the sunset menu you get a free glass of wine but does not compensate for the dried out, untasty meal. I gave it a 2 only because the salad was good.

Always a pleasure to eat here. Service staff is excellent and food is always top notch. Try the wild boar if they have it! The scallops are also a great choice. You really can't go wrong with anything.

Waitress didn't smile once, seem to be bother when asked for more butter for our bread. I have never been to a Restaurant that gives 1piece of butter per person. Food came out cold, waited 10 minutes and still no waitress. Finally the owner walked by and I told her and she made it sound like it wasn't true, can't... More

This is one of my favorite places at the Jersey shore. The ambience ( except for being more noisy than I would expect ) , the food, and the service are all exceptional. What I enjoy most about this place is their willingness to modify almost anything on the menu to make it to Your liking - eg. Less spicy,... More

We have been going there for years....Had all our children's Communion parties there. We love the food and the Family!!! Excellent Italian food always with fresh fish choices. They are perfect for a couples dinner or dinner with the family. Always welcoming with great wait staff!!

Went here two times this month and preferred my first visit with my food choice. The Shrimp Scampi was delicious. The Shrimp Fra Diavolo was overlooked and I asked for broccoli instead of pasta, but they put the shrimp over the broccoli! Are you kidding me? It was horrible. Maybe I should have said on the side. So disappointed the... More

Nice atmosphere. A little loud when full. Shrimp scampi was really good but more lemony then garlic. My boyfriends chicken parm was ok.... Service was average. Not sure I'd go back
