Although we made a reservation we were not seated until 35 minutes afterwards with no warning. After all the other patrons were seated we continued to wait while watching the hostesses eat behind their stand. It felt very rude. Our waiter was fine, but the level of service was not what one would expect for a menu as nice as it was. One example was after we finished the appetizer when the waitstaff came up they asked me to hold onto my dirty silverware from my dirty plate to use for the main course. I guess they didn’t feel that each plate was special and unique enough to not intermingle the flavors by using dirty utensils.
The food was very good, but everything else in front of the kitchen was sadly a disappointment. Including the manager who came out to see how the meal was. It seemed more of who’s who than how was your meal and experience. I would consider doing takeout from this restaurant, but not returning for a sit down meal. Too bad for the chef who is rocking it in the kitchen.

The eggplant Napoleon was the best ever. The pasta with clams was also fabulous. After that the fish and veal dishes were good but nothing extraordinary. The dessert of ice cream cookie sandwich was also tasty. Very crowded but we only waited about 1/2 hour. It’s a byob.

I live in holmdel and it is so nice to have such a good italian restaurant close to home. Me and my wife have become regulars; interesting revolving list of daily specials - last time i had a delicious Cobia special; hard to find in these parts. The baby pulpo appetizer is a favorite, as is the pork chops and the pastas. Atmosphere is always lively, and Frankie is a gracious host, always there and making his way around the tables greetings folks. Only issue is some of the appetizer prices can be hefty, but the portions in general are very large and there is always take home for dinner next day!

Let me begin by saying the food was good. We shared a salad, an appetizer and a pizza. A bit over priced but good. The small things that matter include timely service- our waitress disappeared several times. The table next to us came in after we did and left way before as that waitress was attentive. We arrived early and the restaurant only had about 12 people in it. However we were seated at a table right next to about 6 others. Outdoor seating was available yet we were never asked if we wanted that as an option. Maybe you are treated better if you have reservations as several table of two people were seated at a table for four and had empty tables next to them?? Not sure if we will go back....
