The Scene

“Voted best Italian between NY and PA!” This gem at the shore is one of a kind, with seriously good food in a casual setting. The staff is very friendly and the owners, Michelle & Christopher Ellis are always on hand making sure your experience is the very best. On the Pizzeria side are 13 tables and a large mural depicting the Italian countryside. The bathrooms are labeled “cappuccino” and “espresso” so good luck figuring out which one to use! The dining room side (La Veranda room) has 10 tables and a large mural depicting the Jersey shore from Sandy Hook to Atlantic City.

The Food

Personal favorites in each category are: Appetizers-the Antipasto is huge, the fried calamari is always tender, the stuffed artichokes are the best, and both the pasta fagioli and whatever soup of the day Michelle makes are always outstanding. Pastas-Michelle’s lasagna is outstanding, the stuffed rigatoni in vodka sauce never fails to satisfy, and both the lobster ravioli and Christopher’s ravioli special are always excellent. Dinners-If you love chicken Parmigiana then this is the place to go. Also excellent are the chicken Savoy and the seafood platter. Pizzas-all good here! Their large is actually 18” while most places are 16” for the same price. Subs and Steaks-Christopher is from Philly so he knows how to make a cheese steak, and they use Boars head meats so you know it is good.
