“Authentic Italing Food in a Cozy Setting”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

My parents live in Toms River, NJ and on our recent visit we wanted to try somewhere different. After reading the reviews on Trip Adviser we gave it a shot and weren't disappointed. The restaurant is in a strip mall which is a little deceiving but once inside you are seated in a nicely decorated room. All of the staff were very friendly and made you feel comfortable. There were several specials plus a large menu to choose from. Being Italian the "sauce" is very important and theirs was delicious. My elderly father is very picky and usually always complains about something but not this time, he raved about everything he ate. It is also a plus to be able to BYOB. We will definitely be back.

“Great food - friendly staff”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

What a nice time we had last night at Tardi's! It was my second visit and the first time my husband had been there. The staff was warm, friendly and knowledgable. The food was delicious. The restaurant is just the right size to feel like you have found someplace special that could be a best kept secret. The service was at a great pace so that you could chat, not feel rushed, but not feel like you had been forgotten. Noise level perfect so that you could people and plate watch and not be overheard but none of that awful restaurant din that makes you want to hurry. I hate to comment on the amount of food because I don't want to negate the quality. But, you will not go hungry. My husband ordered a stuffed pork chop that was done to perfection and I had an amazing special of breaded chicken with peppers and potatoes. Dinner capped off with cups of cappuccino and expresso. We will definitely be back!

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

I have been a fan on Tardi's since their two locations in Point Pleasant Beach. On a recent trip back to the shore from north Jersey, we decided to visit their location on Fisher Boulevard in Toms River. We were not disappointed!!

The atmosphere, food, and service were excellent - We had the salmon oreganato and shrimp scampi - delicious!!!! Great food at a great price - BYOB

Do yourself a favor and visit them soon!!!!

“Anniversary Dinner”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

Heard about this place and decided to give it a try. In a shopping mall but once inside you forget all about that fact. Cozy,well appointed dining room. Food was excellent ! My husband had the veal special topped with prosciutto and broccoli rabe and I opted for the veal sorrentino. Both were very delicious. We happened to go early mid week and it was not busy. Will be back for sure but when the summer crowds are gone.
