After enjoying both their red and white chowder take out for years now, we looked forward to having our Anniversary dinner at Stefano's. (They are only open 5:00 p.m. and and later during the summer season and they are BYOB.) We immediately tried their soup...More

Consistently good italian and fish specialties. Good service, good portions, fresh, tasty. BYOB. The veal dishes are super. The chowder is excellent (they won the Chowderfest competition in Newport RI in 2012).

We had reservations for 8:30pm and still had to wait 30 minutes. The waitress was fine, very attentative and personable but the food (garlic and pasta, ravioli and steak rabe) were mediocre at best. Certainly not worth the price.

We had to taste the chowder, which won the LBI 2012 Chowderfest. Our reservation was honored promptly. The chowder was unreal. Entrees were superb, some of the finest Italian food we have ever eaten. My wife is pretty traditional and enjoyed the chicken parmagiana. I...More

Only complaint...we had to wait 25 minutes even though we made reservations (7:15) That's annoying. Food was good and NE clam chowder was awesome. Generous portions. We did not have dessert.

This restaurant is probably one of the best on the island! It's so popular that if you want a 7 pm reservation, you need to call about 2 weeks in advance! And, their clam chowder is out of this world! They've won the LBI chowderfest...More

This is one of the nicest resturants in Beach Haven. The service was great. The salads were fresh and tasty. We had a mix of seafood and veal dishes. Everyone was happy with their meals. Its best to make a reservation a few days ahead....More

I have seen children there but it is not well suited to young children. The area inside isn't huge and it is usually full as the food is great. It is more suited to adults who enjoy great food with the wine or drink of your... More

Shorts for men are acceptable. You can also dine outside so it would be a good choice of attire.
