I am Italian American from the Bronx, and I don't say lightly that this is some of the best Italian food you can get. I was especially impressed by the fried calimari, perfectly prepared and including accents of assorted fried vegetables and lemon slices the...More

This place is one of my go to spots. The food is always spot on. Make reservations if going in the weekend. Summer offers boardwalk and roof top dining. They have a blackberry mojito - definitely worth a try.

Amazing experience. It does get a bit noisy on the weekends, but very, very worth your time and money. Seafood lovers MUST try the Pesce Grande.....a GREAT start to your meal.
