Italian
Brando's was founded on the premise of great food made from quality ingredients, excellent service, and a warm atmosphere which we believe are the three elements of any enjoyable dining experience.

The chef/owner, Steven Botta, grew up in Brooklyn and learned many of recipes used at Brando's from his mother. Raised in this welcoming tradition, he believes when you enter Brando's, whether its your first time or your one hundredth time, you should always feel like they are dining with family.

Soulful Italian is the best way to describe our menu. Our culinary team has been trained at the finest culinary schools, and has over fifty years of combined experience. From our fresh pasta, to our line-caught fish, to our thirty-five day dry-aged steaks, the difference is discernible

    Service was excellent. Good wine and cocktails options. Provided bread for the table with olive oil & garlic, ricotta, and crushed olive spread for dipping. Olive and ricotta together were very good. Agnolotti appetizer was great. Picked buccatini tomato & basil and meatball entrees both very good. Split tiramisu for dessert which was ok but portion was huge, even to split. Good date night spot for special occasions. They do have a business casual dress code.

    Natalie was our server and she was excellent first time we bought our friends to this place and they really enjoyed it. The only downsize was my salad. It was the arugula salad and to say there was hardly any salad on the place is an understatement, but everything else was delicious as always.

    Food and drinks were very good. The service was excellent . Prices are steep for martinis but most restaurants at the shore charge exorbitant amounts for drinks these days .. sign of the twisted inflationary times. It was an overall very good experience
