Everything we ordered here was fabulous. My veal dish was perfectly prepared and my wife's seafood platter was sheer perfection. The bread with pesto seasoning that they bring to your table is addictive and the pasta was homemade and done to perfection. When I asked my server to order the pasta al dente, not only was it done that way, but when she passed my table, she dropped off another al dente pasta on the house, which was delicious cold the next day.

We had heard positive things about this place from locals, so we finally stopped in. The place feels like a big, fancy version of an NJ diner with a large, loud bar. If you’re not up for noise, ask for a booth or don’t come at a busy time. Server was nice, but in the weeds and couldn’t seem to get it under wraps during our hour-long dinner. The kitchen also seemed overwhelmed based on how food was coming out. The cheese ravioli were good. The scallop and risotto special was good, but the scallops were a little too charred (black, really) and everything just a little dry. The “pizza bread” they serve with all meals was terrific. Wine selection was just ok. The mussels, Caesar salad, and wings that the table next to us ordered looked like things we should try if we come back.

We go to a lot of Japanese restaurants but the very best edamame is at an Italian restaurant???
it doesn't make sense but they steam it and they quick fry it in sesame oil and cover with sesame seeds.
It is SOOOO good.
PS so is the Italian food. An especially good deal is the 1/2 price appetizers which are one of the best values at the shore

Stopped in for some snacks and cold ones. We had wings, pizza bread and calamari. Everything was perfect and delicious. The pizza bread alone will have you wanting more. Full bar met our needs with its lively ambience. One draw back is the small parking lot.
