We USED TO BE regular costumes at this restaurant. I don't think it will be the case after tonight..... About 3 months ago I had $70 dollars taken from my wallet! Yes! I forgot my purse there and, after 10 min, when I returned, this "hostess" ran when she saw me and I asked whoever came to see me ,... More

Terrible service with an unhappy waiter. Table was stuck in a corner and for the price of meals the food was mediocre.

Sat at the bar on a Thursday evening. Enza the barmaid was on top of her game. Mussels, pizza, shrimp etc all top notch. Needs restrooms on the first floor

We just ate here. The food was some of the best I have ever eaten. We had canneloni bean and escarole soup, chicken parmigiano and spinach with garlic. All were superb. Even the bread was top notch. Our waitress was so lovely and all staff were helpful and professional. We sat near a window and looked at the ocean. You... More

We had an unusually hot day in October, perfect for lunch outside with the ocean in the background. We had salmon, pasta with lobster and Caesar salad. Food was tasty and nicely presented. The service was ok, fairly quick for lunch but our waiter was not so friendly and seemed bothered. Cocktails were not so great.

Sat outside on a lovely day in October for lunch. I was a little concerned about some of the reviews I read here. Without reason! Great lunch and excellent service... could not have been better. We had soup, salad, pasta and eggplant... all were very tasty and our waiter could not have been nicer.

Both the food and service at this establishment are great . On the night we ate here there was a saxophone player out on the boardwalk which added to the cool ambiance. The prices were fair and I'd come back and eat here in a heartbeat.

Stella Marina has a outdoor area that is right on the boardwalking overlooking the ocean. The food was great. The wine list could be a little more extensive. The staff was very friendly.

...we both got sick from the food about an hour later. Service was extremely attentive. Presentation was good. Outdoor seating on the boardwalk with a great view of the beach. We even thought our meals tasted good. It hits all the marks... but it all took a turn an hour later.

Ate their today for my birthday dinner with friends. Pappardelle Bolognese is to die for. Hubby had pizza, which was very good. Our waiter has to have been the worst I have ever had in 40 years of eating out. Tried to engage him in conversation - it was impossible. No explanation of anything, and seemed annoyed that we even... More
