“Must go to while in AC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

2 in our group had the Pescatori which was simply the best! Linguini w/ clams in white sauce and spaghetti w/ sauasage were also delicious! Almost all of the patrons were local residents and a fairly upscale crowd at that. Food was simply amazing and prices resonable given the quality of the restaurant. Strongly recommend as a must while in AC. Within walking distance of our room at Ceaser's

“Solid meal. A little pricey for what your getting.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

I though this place was decent. The mushroom risotto was great. Shrimp scampi nothing memorable and the squid pasta was solid. If it were my choice I would try something else next time didn't blow me away but did enjoy my meal and have nothing to complain about.

Only two of the pasta's are fresh made.

We are from Dallas where Italian food places are non existent We went with friends and it was a great place. The food was very good. The shrimp appetizer was awesome. The service was outstanding. Everyone had a very good time and we left stuffed and happy

“Another great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

There are so many great restaurants in Atlantic City we love. Chef Vola's, Domenico's, Doc's Oyster House and Knife and Fork, however when my birthday comes along the restaurant I always go back to is Café 2825. We have never been disappointed in our meal here. I won't go into detail about our entire meal because everyone has their own personal likes. What I will say is that no matter what you choose off their menu you will not be disappointed.
The owner is a perfect host visiting every table and making you all feel like he sees you every day. The restaurant is small and can get somewhat noisy, especially when you have a table of 6 behind you talking for the benefit of the entire restaurant. But what heck, they're here for a good time too, however it all just adds to the ambiance of a fun night and a delicious meal.

“Excellent Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

We have eaten here many times for dinner and have hosted several private events at Cafe 2825. Joe and his team are excellent to work with and the food cannot be beat. Excellent Value, excellent time. Thanks Joe.
