This is the best Sea Isle has to offer. Now that it stays light later, the views of the ocean are great. The food is always fantastic. Service (Shout out to Enzo) is superb.

The service was perfect. The restaurant has a wonderful view of the ocean, bandstand and surrounding promenade area. The food is lovingly prepared and delicious. The gnocchi is very good and the Arugula salad is fantastic. Nice variety of specials available even though it is the off-season. Perfect spot for a romantic dinner or celebration.

The atmosphere was really nice. We sat on the 3rd floor and had nice view of the ocean. The service was great from both the bus and wait staff. Our waitress, Erica, was very good at her job. The restaurant was busy but we never felt rushed.

The food was very good. I had the seafood di mare. The linguine was perfectly cooked, not smothered in sauce, with just the right amount of garlic. The mussels were particularly good as they were nice and plump. My wife had the Shrimp fra Diablo. The pasta was superb as was The sauce.

Will definitely go back.
