Our Story

We are a family run business that still cooks the old fashioned way, “from Scratch”.

We have 20+ years of experience in the restaurant business and believe that service, quality and price are what set us apart from the others, of course the taste is what keeps you coming back.

We only use the finest and freshest ingredients which make the difference in our dishes. Our family is originally from Palermo, Sicily. Our parents moved to New York City in 1966 and settled in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn in 1968. We are proud to bring our Brooklyn and Italian areas of expertise to you and hope you feel like part of the family when you dine with us.

Sincerely,

Vinny, Sandy & Maria

  • Sat outside on a beautiful night everything we ordered was great. very personable and attentive service. You have to try this place you won’t be disappointed.

  • Very nice atmosphere, the staff was polite and helpful, the food was very good and quick it wasn’t that busy (me and my boyfriend visited on a Sunday night at 7pm) our meals came out very quickly. I had the jumbo shrimp scampi in garlic sauce and for dessert tiramisu. Would recommend this place. My boyfriend had the cheesecake he loved it!

  • Really enjoyed our night here! Food was great and the waiter was super nice and great with kids. I had salmon and my husband had a huge stuffed pork chop. Both were delicious! The plain personal pizza my daughter had was really good too! We will definitely be back!

  • Italian food, served and prepared with pride. Simple as that. This hidden gem is one of the most distinctive in Toms River: eating here feels like eating in the home of an Italian family that knows how to cook, rather than a stuffy restaurant or an uninspired pizzeria that seems to be commonplace for Ocean County.
