- Our Story -

In 2019, after a 7 year hiatus, we opted to return to  our original passion. Drawing upon our 20 plus years of experience, we have come back to bring Barnegat a classic menu of Italian specialties, fine steaks, fresh seafood, and AMAZING thin crust brick oven pizza.

​This is our fourth restaurant, and by far the culmination of all those years of expertise.  We are absolutely thrilled to be bringing to town this new full service restaurant, which we have  designed to be a cozy destination to bring parties, family dinners, or just yourself.

Just remember, whatever your reason for coming,  bring your appetite as well as your love and appreciation for fine authentic Italian Specialties.

We're Back!

Head Chef

Matthew's Grandfather was from Salerno Italy and he has meticulously chosen the perfect menu, based on years of culinary experience and the old world tradition that his grandfather has passed down through the generations.  With this menu Matthew has successfully combined all  his years of culinary experience with a lifetime full of amazing family recipes to bring together a menu for all to enjoy.


He knows that those who love the Italian Classics along with Steaks and Seafood dishes will surely love what we have to offer! Plus, he's added some special touches including, Thin Crust Brick Oven Pizza, steaks, fresh seafood and of course there are even some old Family Recipes within these dishes! Shhh.
