A friend had a party catered by MonAlyssa so we decided to try the restaurant. Had good food. The gluten free pasta was a bit over cooked. The lemoncello dessert was a special that night I would go back just for that! Indoor and outdoor dining. Friendly staff.

Italian is so much more than just garlic!

Our appetizer was the grilled peaces. They are served layered with fresh moist mozzarella, crisp fragrant basil and drizzled with a balsamic reduction. The pickiest eater on the planet ate it!

Our meals came with the house salad, the balsamic vinaigrette was very good. I up graded mine to the Insalata Mela with the raspberry vinaigrette. It was a the best blend of soft, crisp and chewy. The flavors! Oh! The sweet of the cranberries, tart from apple, mellow of the greens and walnuts, with the depth of the dressing and cheese. It was a very "fresh" meld of flavors.

We all had a bit of each main course. We ordered the fettuccini Alfredo. It was creamy and rich.

The veal Marsala. It had a very deep, sweet yet mellow flavor. It was made with one of the best Marsala wines I've tasted.

The veal saltimbocca. This was delightful. The spinach was perfect. The mushrooms were sautéed perfectly. The meat was tender. The prosciutto, thick and flavorful. Topped with the sweetness of the wine sauce. Yum.

The shrimp scampi over angle hair. Quite possibly the best I've had. Very rich with lemon and garlic. The lemon butter glaze was a very bright and summer scent and flavor.

The Pollo Calabrese. The chicken was crisp and juicy. With sundries tomato in a white wine sauce over the cheese tortellini and mozzarella. It was very rich, definitely layers of flavors, but not heavy.

We had a great time. Every table seemed to be enjoying themselves and the walls rang from all the laughter.

This place doesn't know what to be. Went there for lunch and ordered pasta fagioli. I was told to scoop out a ladle full of elbows and go to the back where the cook poured some broth on it. I kid you not! There was pizza, fancy meals, and everything in between. It's also brutal to get in and out of. You have to back onto bay avenue

For all the pizza places in Jersey, there's much better

Place is always packed so I have always done take out. A bit of a long wait since they are always busy. Take out orders usually take 45 minutes. I love the Bolognese, my son likes the linguini and white clams. Definitely make a reservation as this place gets busy early.
