Money has been tight, and we don't eat out much anymore. But last night we got some unexpected cash and decided to splurge. We ran through the list of "Trendies" in the other, but agreed to Tuzzio's in Long Branch. Best choice! The staff is still attentive and friendly. The food is still ecellent and the prices still within reason. I has the artichokes francaise over cappelini, and husband had shrimp parm. The side salads are, as always, varied and deliscious, the bread warm and toasty. We have fond family memories of the BEST fried calimari with marinara sauce: our kids always loved that. So if your family budget is limited, forget Olive Garden and go to a REAL Italian family restaurent: Tuzzio's!

Caesar salad is one of my basic food groups. I've tried CS all around the world-literally-and must give Tuzzio's CS the top spot in my heart and palate.
The restaurant is not fancy and caters to 'the locals', but it is a hidden gem worth finding. Summer specials include lobster night and Tour of Italy. We often take out of town guests there for Great Jersey food such as clam pizza. Enjoy.

I love this place have for the past ten years great food and service, but someone has to clean up the area or they need to move away from the train station. In the last 5 years someone was murdered 2 door down and last week 3 people were shoot all within a block of the restaurant. I hope the Police do something about this, if not West Long Branch is nice.

Food is really good but service is painfully slow and the place looks like it was built 50 years ago and has never been updated. Go for the food. Ignore everything else and you will enjoy yourself.
