We had a great time! Food was delicious and service was great. Our waitress recommended arugula and burrata salad, and it tasted amazing! I tried pasta carbonara and it blew my mind. We were so full and didn’t try the dessert, but they told us they make homemade tiramisu and cannolis, so we are going to be back for sure! More

The Brigantine is always a great place to dine. My favorite dish there is the swordfish. It’s always fresh and delicious! The service has always been excellent and my family and I have been dining there for many years. More

I really love this place! It was my first time here and it exceeded my expectations. Overall it was just excellent. And I definitely will come back. It’s hard to find good Italian food but this was really good. The pumpkin ravioli was outstanding. And the egg plant Parmaggiana was equally awesome. Lemon Tiramisu was so light and flavorful. I loved it. The satellite TVs showing Italian TV was OK but it was a little bit distracting for my taste. And the spaghetti was overcooked (but just about every place in America over cooks it). It really should be served al dente. Overall thumbs up! More
