I've been going to Tuzzio's for good, home-cooked Italian food all of my life. It is a low-key restaurant that only the locals know about that serves great food at reasonable prices. This restaurant has been in existence since 1965. It was across the street from another long-term Italian restaurant and has outlasted that restaurant. I've never had a bad... More

This is an old school Italian restaurant that has amazing food and terrific service!! The waiter, who's always there, is friendly and very attentive. He makes wonderful recommendations and is great with the kids. The chicken parm is served in a casserole dish and is delish!! The house dressing is homemade and is a must try. I can't say enough...

Tuzzio's has been around for years. I hadn't been there in a while but that's going to change! Their garlic bread is the best! Red sauce is served with it for dipping. And their pizza is so good! We had half peppers and onions and half sausage and mushrooms. All of us were very happy!! The service was excellent!

This is your typical solid neighborhood restaurant. A good red sauce Italian restaurant. A warm place where the neighbors, friends and family go for a nice night out to celebrate whatever special occasion is occurring. The food has all the pasta, meat and fish meals that you would expect. Well prepared with quality ingredients. Visit this place, you will enjoy... More

One if the best in Long Branch. Fantastic food, reasonable prices,excellent service. Just great place. Recommend to make a reservation. Instead of going in touristic restaurants on broad walk, drive 1 mile here.

This is the second time we've traveled down to Long Branch for the NUWAY Summer Nationals and we ate at Tuzzio's both times. The portions are extremely plentiful and every plate was really good.
