Birthday dinner. First time there. Sauces disappointing for an Italian restaurant and wasn’t thrilled with $12 sharing fee. Chef would not let us substitute a side dish.

Service was excellent, as usual. Cornmeal crusted salmon over crab risotto was absolutely delicious. Well worth the money. Always love the ambiance there. Will definitely return.

First of all the service is impeccable, however disappointed with the overcooked meatballs and sauce which was tasteless for the price. Won’t be back for a long time, very sad.

The service was terrific. Loved that we could make reservations ( not always at many restaurants on LBI). We were greeted and seated right away. Our waiter explained additions to the menu. BYOB was a plus. It was a busy night, but the service was on target and unobtrusive. We all enjoyed our meals ( and dessert!) Glad we finally made it to this restaurant.

Hands down, THE BEST ITALIAN RESTAURANT on LBI
or on the Jersey shore for that matter!!!
Great food, excellent service and the ambiance is like dining in a Tuscan restaurant in Italy. Pricey, yes. Worth it, definitely!

This was our first and last visit to this restaurant. It was a Monday night at 7:30 and the service for our appetizers and main course was very slow. My salmon in corn meal was luke warm. It came with just 2 polenta fries which were very good. The all male waiters were inattentive; the car valet was friendlier.

Although we have been vacationing on LBI for over 15 years, this was our first visit to La Spiaggia; it won't be our last! My husband and I had a fantastic evening there. The service and food were simply outstanding. It was evident that may of our fellow diners were long-time customers. Our waiter and the entire staff at La Spiaggia made us feel welcome and special. They were helpful, attentive and very friendly. They made us feel at home and it made our night. We had the beef tortellini soup, osso-buco and grilled branzino. All were outstanding. We are very grateful for our experience and will be back soon!

The reason I took one star away was that I had to send back my grilled octopus appetizer. It was too charred and tasted burnt. It was not eatable. Service staff sent it back without fuss and replaced it with their burrata salad....delicious. Everything else was very good. Service was excellent

Being Italian I am very picky when eating Italian food out, however, from the minute you walk into this restaurant it's like coming home to Nona's house! The food was absolutely delicious, the shrimp scampi risotto was the best I've ever had. Our waiter Nick was efficient and treated my husband and I like family. We've gotten to know the owner Mark over the last couple of years and he's a doll. When we got up to leave there were hugs all around, like I said "La Familia". We will be back next year for sure.
Thanks again for an outstanding meal!
