they have an extensive selection of italian food including great pizza. there is a good selection of gluten free options as well, and if you have one kid who doesn't feel like pizza, they've got you covered. my son had a pretty good looking cheeseburger. service is fast and friendly.

We eat at La Ginestra several times each year when we are in the area, and always enjoy the food and the service. Some of my favorites are the Alla Boscaiola, which is a wonderful pasta dish with prosciutto in a blush type sauce, the Shrimp Parmigiana, the Veal Saltimbocca (with prosciutto, spinach and mozzarella cheese) and the Veal Marsala.

When we are there with my family (large Italian group) we usually start off with the Antipasto, rice balls (which are a special and to die for), and sometimes even a pizza, which are all delicious.

The atmosphere is very homey and comfortable, the staff and owners are extremely personable and will come out and chat. We will continue to keep this place high on our list and a must go to when we are Holmdel.

Pizza and some Italian entrees available. The staff is prompt and helpful...if you're eating in (seats 20+), and the pick-up orders have always been ready when they indicated. Thin crust pies and several special combinations available. It's a surprise the local office buildings don't crowd in more for lunch.

This little italian restaurant is great. Take out or eat-in. Food is consistently very good. Pizzas are outstanding. I highly recommend the bruchetta topping on the pizza - it's delicious! Service is very friendly
