Authentic Italian at the beach, great meal! Our issues were loud, obnoxious, guy behind us who just liked the sound of his voice and dark water glasses make it difficult to know when patron is out of water and needs refill.

Great meal.

Burrata appetizer was outstanding. Lobster tail was great as was salmon entree. Gelato/Expresso dessert also outstanding.

A little pricey compared to other Italian restaurants on island, but worth an occasion Splurge.

We have been going to this restaurant for many years, however, on this visit we waited to be seated for about 10 minutes. Our meal service though very pleasant was extraordinarily slow.. Food was very good - but the long wait between courses took away from the overall ambiance.

I was a little disappointed with my meal on Friday night. I ordered the Sunday gravy, it was basically a big mess in my plate and did not have any flavor but maybe I am used to my own Sunday gravy. It could have just been a off night and will try the restaurant out again.
There is also a weird odor in the restaurant which my sister and daughter pointed out as we walked in. It may be time to update the decor and clean things up a bit.

We were seated before 6:00pm so we were able to order from the early menu. The food was excellent. My husband had the Penne with Vodka Sauce and I had the Eggplant Rollatini. The servers were friendly and attentive. We would recommend this restaurant to family and friends when they are in LBI.

What a great surprise, a fantastic Italian eatery here on LBI. We shared the Calamari appetizer and had to be one of the best I've ever had. I had the Seafood Fra Diavolo and it was cooked to perfection with just the right amount of heat. Allowed the fresh seafood to shine through without overpowering it. My date had the Penne Bolognese and it was near perfection. OF course the wine was outstanding, but then again it's a BYOB and we brought the good stuff. Highly recommend.

Can’t say that we were really thrilled or wowed. After reading the reviews stating that it’s the best Italian food on the island, etc. we really disagree. The wait staff was mediocre, they didn’t know much about dishes, especially gluten-free questions. One went to ask the question in the kitchen and then never came back to give us the answer. 3 different waiters came to table so it was confusing. Clam sauce was just ok and kind of bland. My husbands fra diavlo was just ok. With so many amazing restaurants on LBI including the LBI hotel “Salt”restaurant across the street, I don’t think we will be back.

La Spiaggia is a beautifully cozy place with an incredible menu and greatly attentive staff. The owner is genuinely attentive to each patron and very welcoming. You can byob or they offer a wine list. I had a lovely time and to make this dining experience even better, a special early bird 3-course menu with specials was offered for a fraction of what it normally would cost. The beautiful decor of old world Italy is the perfect setting for the many Italian dishes they serve with rustic bread, garlic infused oil and spread. The free valet service was a surprise that merits bonus points! Will definitely be coming back!!
