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.

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!
The BEST!!

Food was delicious also.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
