    We had a great early Mothers Day meal at Panini Bay. The service was great, the food was excellent "Tuna..WOW" and the desserts was the topper! I recommend this restaurant highly! A neighborhood gem.

    I ordered the seafood combination over pasta , the presentation was nice however the halibut was over cooked very dried out and overall no taste what so ever. I had to sprinkle hot pepper flakes to give it some taste which still did not enhance the dish. I was so disappointed since we have eaten here many times in the past and will not be going back for some time.

    Had lunch for a Mother's Day celebration. Food was good but not amazing. Disappointed that platters or hot dish selection was limited as focus was sandwiches. Preferred more veggies. Mislead by online menu. Prefer hot tea selection but again limited selection. The server did work with us to accommodate our preferences. Relaxed and not rushed. Setting is great, well-lit and perfect bay view. Would give it another try.

    This place is fantastic. It was just dumb luck that I stumbled upon this amazing restaurant, but thank goodness I did. The food was some of the best ive had in a long time. Linguine and Clams with sausage was great. We got a side of the mamas meat sauce to go with the bread and again that was great. The service was prompt and attentive. The views of the bay were very romantic especially at sunset. I only wish this amazing restaurant was closer to home so I could go more often.

    This has been one of our favorite places at the Jersey shore for many years. Previous owners and current owners never disappointed. My wife’s favorite is the hot Italian sausage and clams over linguine which is as she says “off the charts delicious “. I have had it and agree. However it was not quite as good this weekend. It was very good but she said something was different. I had creamy shrimp and linguine which was just ok. Everything is always excellent here so that won’t keep us from going back. Perhaps the chef is different before the season really kicks in. My rating is ONLY for our last visit as I would give them 5 stars for the many other times we have been there. Very friendly staff! Great views if you can score a table in the front room.

    Service was off from previous visits. Our entrees came out before our appetizer was even finished or dishes cleared. We hope it was only because it was early in the season and servers were novice and lacking proper training and that these issues are remedied.

    The view was beautiful. My salad with grilled ahi tuna was excellent. The bread for the table was crisp with tasty olive oil. Friends burger was cooked perfectly. Grilled eggplant on baguette and balsamic vinegar drizzle was sooo good. I like a more moist sandwich. The waitress suggested extra balsamic dressing. It was perfect.
