Food was decent, but nothing out of this world. Service was good. Restaurant décor was pretty, but it was very noisy. I think the prices were very high for what you got. I wouldn't rush to go back too soon.

Food was excellent. Service was very attentive. BYOB. Decor was nice (white table cloths, candles, nice atmosphere).

The menu items were expensive ($26 for a chicken dish)... and the specials were 50% higher than menu entrees. I ordered a cod fish dish off the menu for $30 (good, but not $30 good)... another guest ordered the swordfish special which looked almost identical to my cod fish dish, yet cost $45 (go figure). The Seafood Fra Diavolo special was $48!

It was a very good meal, but the prices were just out of line. There are many other choices on Long Beach Island that can deliver an outstanding meal for much less.

And don't bring young kids... no kids menu.

Delicious food and great staff. Always a friendly greeting and prompt seating. Specials are often very pricey so make sure you check. Faves are Meatballs and salad, Bolognese, seafood fra diablo.

I loved the fact since there was 9 of us that we could make a reservation ahead of time. During the summer months it is hard to get seating for dinner and often involves waiting. This was great, because the staff was wonderful and very accomodating for our group. Everyone really enjoyed the meal. We had two guests order the Burrata special appetizer and when the guests had tried it, it seems like it was beginning to sour. We brought it to our waitress's attention and she immediately went and checked it out and told us we were right. She removed it from our bill and they took the special off the menu. I felt they handled this extremely professional and was very happy in the service. I will definately go back. The guests ordered everything from the chicken parmegiano, to fish, to pasta. All was excellent. We will DEFINATELY be back.
