Kris' service and attention was very good. Barb, the manager, was attentive and made sure everything ran smoothly (we saw her out in the dining room throughout our time there). Food was delivered as we requested, with a break in between the salad and entree. We had the penne with shrimp in a vodka blush sauce (excellent) and chicken parmigiana (average - pretty typical. The sauce on the chicken could have been a little thicker). Overall, we would return.

Met the new owners in the elevator prior to COVID and I told them I was Italian and rarely ate in Italian restaurants. Our prior visits were in m day a d Tuesday and they were not open. We came wed nov 3 to celebrate a birthday. The food was very good. The meatball was very very good a d almost tasted like my mothers!!!
I had the eggplant Parma and it was good though the eggplant needed cooked a tiny bit more, The crusty bread was perfect. The pasta was cooked perfectly thought I would have preferred more sauce. Mt friend has the roasted pepper which she said was excellent. She is on keto so she had several choices off the menu. The Cabernet wine was excellent.

Jerry Longo's provided a great experience for our party. Drinks and food came out in a reasonable time frame for a party of 6. Our reservation was accommodated and executed properly. The server and hosts were respectful, and the food was delicious and filling. The ambience of the restaurant was excellent. Overall, I am very happy that I arranged for this restaurant to be our dining location for last evening. I would definitely like to return at some point in the future, and would certainly recommend Jerry Longo's to others.

Dinner was excellent. We had a table outside the restaurant proper.
There were two of us dining and we had the shrimp on toast appetizer, spaghetti and meat ball, veal marsala, cheese cake with cherry sauce and lemon cake. Everything was served at the appropriate time, and we didn't feel rushed. Food was delicious and as in most restaurants there was enough left over for lunch the next day. I would dine there again.

Waited about 1hr and 20 minutes to get our food from the time we ordered. Staff brought out a Meatball that we didn’t order about 20 minutes prior to our dinner arrival. It was complimentary we assused- though no one told us that. We never did find out why our food was so late- assuming order was not placed or forgotten. We watched many customers come in and leave while we were there. Overall the food was good.

My husband and I had dinnner Saturday night. I had the chicken parm with penne and he had penne ala vodka with shrimp. Both meals were delicious. I have to say that I skipped the meatball for $8 dollars when it used to be $5!! It’s the principal of being over charged!!

My friend and I had a great dinner, We both ordered the meatball with ricotta cheese and sauce that was excellent. It’s our favorite appetizer there. I had the Mediterranean Chicken with risotto. The chicken was cooked perfect as was the risotto. My friend had the chicken francaise. It was her first time ever eating it and she loved it. We both had chocolate gelato that was so good. Every time we go to Dover Downs we make a reservation to eat here because we love it so much.

Jerry Longo’s is our go to spot when visiting Dover Downs casino. Their food for the most part is excellent. I’m just picky and I judge on the presentation of the food as well. As far as what is important, the food tastes great. Nice size portions. Served hot and delicious! Service has always been a pleasant experience for us as well. Food quality is the best out of all of the food options there at the casino. You will never go wrong with Jerry Longo’s! 🥰👍

As seems par for the course these days, no sides come with the 'main' course anymore. Ordering a side Caesar salad set me back $11. The food came out luke-warm and the veal marsala was sweet. The eggplant parmesan was delicious. The marinara sauce was delicious and the spaghetti was cooked perfectly al dente.

This is a old fashioned Italian joint. Lots of Italian ambience. Godfather playing on multiple TVs. Lots of Motown on the sound system.
Only negative is: very cold inside.
To me some of the prices seem high for the amount of food served. One of my favorites is the Shrimp Sinatra. Two jumbo shrimp on 2 pieces of bread.
Please try their lemon cream cake👍🏽
