Finally they bring an Italian restaurant back to the Belmar area...the last one didn't do so well and rightfully so. But this one...they'll make it if enough people catch word of it! We tried for the first time tonight and absolutely loved it!! The server was incredibly friendly and accommodating, and smiled and was very knowledgeable about the specials, desserts, and other menu items. Bread was amazing, and loved that instead of the standard oil it came with pesto! The salads were so big!! I would prefer a smaller salad for my pre-entrée dish...definitely didn't need that much salad...but they were delicious! The Caesar was interesting but tasty. My husband had a shrimp pesto gnocchi and I had spaghetti and meatballs. Both were delicious!! Not such a huge portion that you can't finish...agreed that it may be pricier than necessary, but we had no complaints about our food AT ALL! My husband had the tiramisu cheesecake and it was really good as well. Service got a little slow towards the end, but the waitstaff were working their tails off....very busy Saturday night, go early to get seated quickly. We will definitely go back again...might be a little hard to spot near the movie theatre, kind of away from all the other dining...but word gets out quickly in Belmar...lots of foot traffic. Definitely worth checking out!
