Stopped in after an afternoon supporting the small businesses in Asbury. Short wait for a table. Had a drink at the bar. Bartender was great. After we were seated it was a bit of a wait for a server but she was great when she came over. Ordered a few pizzas. All were good except the Italian stallion. It came... More

We were nearby at the Silver Ball Museum and friends had recommended this place. It must have been a large warehouse of some sort at one time and converted into a really cozy Italian brick oven pizza/restaurant place. Very tasty selection of brick oven pizza, crust was on the thinner side, just the way we like it. The brick oven... More

We stopped here on our walk back to our Ocean Grove hotel. The martinis were awesome. The glasses of wine served in old school juice type glasses were great. The bartenders were very friendly. Main complaint: We ordered a little eggplant caponata to enjoy with our drinks. When it arrived, it was served with no bread. Just in a dish.... More

We had the mozzarella sandwich, octopus salad, a bib lettuce salad and a margarita. The food was top notch as were the desserts-a sundae and the apple pie Servers were very pleasant but inattentive. The plates were served over a period so some of us had to sit staring at the dish until everyone was served. Despite being there at... More

I loved all the food we had. The decor is so perfect for this setting. It was very busy when we went.

My daughter and I went there to grab a quick dinner before a concert at the Stone Pony. We sat at the bar. Wonderful service. Quick and attentive. The food was delicious and $2 mugs of Yuenglings-Can't beat that! Can't wait to go back. The Bib salad was to die for and so was the Porta Porta "pizza".

This place is great for large parties. There were eight of us, and we sat on this long picnic table and enjoyed delicious and reasonably priced salads and pasta dishes. At first it was really too warm inside, but it eventually cooled down. We went on an extraordinarily hot day in October, and there were people dining outside under the... More

We love this place. The pizza is delicious and the mozzarella is to die for. It gets very busy in the summer, so expect a wait.

Had lunch at Porta. The space is big and open with a nice size bar. Pizza options are great including vegan opts. Had the pesto pizza which was perfectly cooked, great flavor, and a good size for 2 to share at lunch. Would go back daily if I could.

Thank Jaclyn P
