Been here many times before. We pulled up and saw "Under new management". We stayed to eat anyway. The menu is much smaller now. Food was average. Sorry, wish I could have given it a better score. Service was very good.

This is not fast food on the boardwalk - it is a real Italian restaurant. Food is good quality, but gets lines often.

We were looking forward to some tasty Italian food after a full day at the beach...not here! Uninspired and tasteless. Should have just ordered some pizza.
