We had our wedding and luncheon reception at the Il Giardino Sul Mare and it was fantastic!!!! The food was wonderful and the Canoli cake was WOW...The staff is very professional , accomidating and friendly. We were to come the night before to decorate and everything was already set up and waiting for us. The restaurant is very well kept and the bathrooms are modern and CLEAN. We were not rushed to leave and were treated like royalty...

We've been going here for years. It's a bit pricey, but you can find coupons in the local flyers. I love when they have the special "Veal Osso Bucco". One of my favorites. There have been two different owners but the menu has stayed the same and food still good. Atmosphere is nice. It use to be BYOB but they now have a liquor license.

We live in Forked River so this is a good choice for us if we don't want to travel far. We have been there a few times and the food is always good as is the service although at times both can be a bit slow. however, they are very friendly. it is a little pricey as it is not a BYOB so you can run up your bill pretty quickly. The menu is fairly extensive so you wont have trouble finding something you are in the mood for. Love the whole artichoke appetizer although you need to ask for it, my husband always enjoys his pasta dish and the scallops with pesto risotto is delish!ask to sit on the enclosed patio - right on the lagoon and it is quitter out there.

While attending a party on Sat. May 3re 2014 we were very upset that they waiter and waitress didn*t even give us a chance to finish our food before our dish was taken away along with our forks ect.. It was a communion party in the back room on the main floor and while eating our salad and main course before we knew it our plates were gone.. This was unexceptable as they seemed to be trying to rush us out of there and I have never been to a place that does this. It was down right RUDE.. The food was good or what I was allowed to eat of it but I dont recommend having a party there if this is how they treat you and your guest.. It was very embarrassing to say the least.. and we paid a pretty penny for it.. It not only happened to us but to other guest at our party also.. I was mortified when our guest did not get a chance to eat their food before they looked down to see that their plates where gone.. I hope they change their ways as I will be telling everyone about this and what took place.. It was suppose to be a special day and our guests should not have gone home hungry because they wanted the room which we paid for.. !!!!!

A nice italian spot on the river. Good food, nice service. Forked River NJ is an italian haven - so if you can't serve good italian food in this area don't even try. These guys satisfy and its worth the trip.
