A Touch of Italy
Our Family Chef personally selects the freshest wild fish and creates made to order daily specials, as well as a tradition of great attention to detail with every appetizer, entree and dessert that we serve.
We are a long time South Jersey favorite, our family takes great pride in our food and service.
We welcome you to enjoy a true Italian dining experience, and to become part of our family.
We had reservations and went right to our table when we arrived. Service was excellent and the food hot and delicious. The waitress brought out dessert on a large plate that said Happy Birthday. Great place to eat.
As usual the food and service were great
BigLew, Thank you
Staff very personable food is delicious a great place to enjoy an awesome experience
Thank you dallas17
Food is amazing ! I have to say our waiter Chris was such a wonderful person as well as an attentive waiter. He made my child who was very nervous and sad calm, laughing, happy and talkative!
Food was delicious also.
Thank you annabanana, we are glad our staff made you and your families experience so wonderful
Restaurant decor was fine. We arrived at opening hour. There were no other patrons in the dining area when we ordered; it took over 35 minutes to receive our meals. Food, when eventually received was ok, nothing to write home about. Crossing off my list, won't be going back.
hb2539, we are sorry that you did not enjoy your experience with us. We do cook each meal to order, so it is served fresh and hot. We would like to hear more of your visit, if you wish please call or email us. 609-646-1855, ask for Scott or firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you
The bread we were served was moldy. The manager/host gave an obligatory apology and that was about it. Never came back to the table or said a word on the way out. From the minute we walked in the door I found him to be arrogant and not cordial at all. Unless of course you were a regular then it was completely different!!! Family members have been going there for years. I found the experience to be extremely disappointing and I won’t go back. This is my first negative comment on Open Table.
We are sorry that the bread appeared to be moldy, new bread and clean plates were delivered to you table. Our bread is delivered to us daily, we have notified the bakery of this issue. If the apologies seemed to come out of obligation that was not how it was meant, again offering an apology on your way out. We never want any of our guests to have a bad experience with any aspect of the dining experience here at A Touch of Italy. We hope you will give us another opportunity to serve you.
Food was excellent and service was great!
Thank you Christinal
Everything is always perfect
Thank you KarenK
We had a party of 7 and the food and service were excellent as usual. Out guests enjoyed the atmosphere and loved the food
Thank you Arty
From the time you walk into the time you leave service and food is always great
EvalinaN, Thank you very much
Only downside is upon arrival it’s difficult to know if you are in the host area. It was a few minutes before we were greeted, but once seated everything from the food to the service was exceptional.
RodneyW, Glad you enjoyed your experience with us. Thank you
We always love the food but the noise level was ridiculous. We were in the small room near the hostess and we were screaming to each other.
Again we’ve had a fantastic meal and a service by Michael was fantastic we will be back again
DELISH! Wonderful dining experience! Would definitely go back!
Pleasant evening with friends. The food was good and we enjoyed the live music in the background in the lounge.
we go here frequently, never had a bad meal. great place great people!
We enjoyed our meals and will return. Would have given 41/2 stars if available.
My only complaint was we had a 7pm Open Table reservation and probably waited until 7:30 before we were called, (it was a busy Saturday nite) but we went to the bar and had a lovely Martini and were seated. My meal was their fabulous flounder and scallops in white wine butter sauce with the vegetable the day which happened to be garlic green beans and they were a hit. The salad was great, too. My husband had the zuppa do pesci (seafood on top of pasta) in a spicy (he requested spicy)white sauce and he raved about it
One more thing, my hubby knocked over his half full drink and they quickly refilled it, n/c. Overall a success and we will be returning soon. Only a 20 minute drive from Brigantine! On Tuesdays. they have a very reasonable pick your parm for 2, that includes dessert and a bottle of wine!
Outstanding food. It’s always excellent .
Noise level a bit high.
I feel that the price for the amount of food was not equal. Service was very poor waitress complaint about waiter and also said she be in the back folding napkins for us to come get her if we needed anything. Really!
SandraV, we are very sorry to hear you had a bad experience, and would like to learn more about this, if you could call 609-646-1855 and ask for Scott, or email email@example.com, we would greatly appreciate it. Thank you
Staff was courteous, server was friendly, food was mediocre, main courses took longer than it should have to be served. It was an OK experience, not great. The server was friendly & tried to make light of the food delay, it was obvious to her that it was taking longer than it should have.
I feel the dinner was overpriced for the quality of the meal & overall not a good value.
I had a negative experience at this restaurant many years ago & had not been back since.
I had reservations for a special occasion & when we arrived, they had no record of it.
They were not very accommodating to correct the error, so I did not return.
This time, my friend wanted to eat here so I decided to give it another try.
It was not a bad experience, but not a great one either, so I don't think I will be back.
Mike, We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy a great experience with us. We strive to provide outstanding food and service to each and every guest. We hope that you will give us another opportunity to please your palate. We thank you for coming back after having unhappy experience years ago as well.

Maureenthewalker, Thank you for this review and the compliments
This has been my Dad’s favorite restaurant for years and I wouldn’t think of taking him anywhere else for Fathers Day. Have never been disappointed with this restaurant and highly recommend
LynS, Thank you, very glad you and your dad enjoy our restaurant
Sat down (late) and 15 minutes go by without so much as our drink order being taken. People sat after us and we saw them get bread and drinks immediately. Manager must have observed my disgust and finally came over and HE took our drink order. Finally met our waitress about 10 minutes later and ordered everything at once for fear that we would miss a comedy show in AC we had tickets for. Food arrived and tasted fine. Low star rating for food was in reference to the way it came out the next morning. Will not return.
VERY SLOW SERVICE ON SAT. NIGHT FOOD WAS NOT AS GOOD AS PREVIOUSLY
B-sing, We are sorry your experience was not not as expected, and the food and service were not as usual. I would like to learn more about this experience from Saturday. You can email me: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 609-646-1855 and ask for Scott. We appreciate your feedback Thank you
Touch of Italy is always a great GO TO PLACE! The 11 year old deemed the Pepperoni Pizza EXCELLENT!!!
My fish (corvino) was a little overcooked but sauced nicely. The Stuffed Meatball App was very good!
The food is not as good as a few years ago but still a good Italian meal.
FoodieMike, We are very glad that you and your family enjoyed your meals with us, glad the 11 year old raved about our pizza. I would appreciate more feedback on experience with us. Please email or call email@example.com or 609-646-1855 and ask for Scott Thank you for the nice review
Always a wonderful experience and never had a bad meal at Touch of Italy!!!
LarryW Thank you for nice review!! Look forward to seeing you again soon
Food and service was excellent as always. Love it there
Bruschetta pizza appy took over 45 min - too long. Not to busy there at that time. dinner always good!
Unfortunate situation with a nearby table. A loud and obviously intoxicated patron was using disgraceful language and was asked to please stop. Management intervened and defused what might have been a nasty ending. Our table was moved with apologies by the staff. My party was comped coffee and dessert. We have been dinning here for over 10 years and have never had a bad meal or experience. I highly recommend A Touch of Italy.
We’ve had dinner several times in the past and enjoyed our experience except for tonight. Food was just ok, our server was all over the place and not friendly. The staff seemed liked they were running all over the place. It wasn’t an enjoyable experience.
BritneyD, We are very sorry to hear that you did not have an enjoyable experience last evening, as you have in the past. The restaurant was extremely busy, keeping the staff moving quickly, not allowing them the time to converse with there guests as usual. We appologize that you did not have the usual experience here with us. We strive please every customer. Please reach out to me at your convience to discuss 609-646-1855 and ask for Scott, or email: Scott@touchofitaly.net
Excellent food and service! Very nice place to spend with family and friends!
Thank you MAFM
Touch of Italy is always a sure bet! Our server was very nice but due to staff shortage a bit slow.
The Soup of the day (Sausage/Kale) was outstanding and the LONG HOTS delicious. The Veal Parm
was ok not great which is unusual for TOI.
Always a great spot at the Bar. The Bartender was Friendly and made a wicked good Manhattan!
Foodiemike, Thank you for the nice review and added insite you provided. We greatly appreciate it. We look forward to seeing you soon
Maybe I would. We had a reservation. We’re seated 15 minutes late even when a “walk in” family got seated ahead of us. Service was slow. Watched 2 busboys fall in the same place near the bar because the floor wasn’t cleaned up. One of the falls looked serious. LOTS of broken glass! Food was fine but for the final price we paid and then dealing with the slow service, getting seated late (with a reservations!), loud place... I don’t think the return on our investment was really there.
Food and beverage were terrific. The food server was more like a poorly trained waitress w/no sense of boundaries. She got 10%.
RMA300, Thank you for the review and insite on the service. Please give us to call or email to discuss the service aspect of your experience. 609-646-1855, ask for Scott or Scott@touchofitaly.net Thank you
It's always a pleasure at A Touch of Italy! We had a wonderful mother's day dinner, and even though it was busy, everyone was so pleasant and patient with us. Wonderful food as always! Can't wait to be back.
Nina, Thank you for the compliments, we look forward to serving you again soon
Surprised to find out they had a limited menu when we got there because it was Mother’s Day. Would’ve been nice to know before I made a reservation.
