This Italian restaurant's location on Cookman is right in the Asbury Park newly renovated downtown area. Street parking only, but we all found space - make sure you feed the meters. We had a Saturday night dinner to celebrate a special occasion (three couples). The restaurant is quaint with decent restaurant layout and decor. We had fish and chicken dishes for our main courses and a couple of different appetizers/salads - all ala carte. My Tilapia was quite good and I also tasted two differently prepared Salmon dishes - both very good also. The fish was all fresh and all of the dishes looked attractive. Everyone at the table said their food was very good and several of us are fairly discerning about food quality and preparation. They also had some of the classic Italian dishes for those that like that kind of thing. The restaurant is a BYOB, and that's something we like - always a plus to bring wines that are better quality than you can buy at the restaurant. The only negatives were the ala cart pricing pushed up the overall price when you add a simple salad to your meal. And, the restaurant got a bit noisy as it filled-up - not the worst, but not the best when you're trying to have a conversation. The restaurant menu advertised 1/2 off specials weeknights, but we were there on the weekend. I'd recommend this as an upscale Italian restaurant in Asbury Park - mangiare deliziosi!
