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!
