We stayed in Ocean Grove and received a dinner voucher for UVA's. We were unsure how it was going to be as we had never been there before. We were beyond pleasantly surprised. Steven was our server and he went above and beyond with recommendations and service. I had a chicken dish and my husband had a steak dish. Both... More

One of our favorite restaurants on Main Street. Live entertainment in the bar area with great Happy Hour specials. We love the menu in the dining area and outside seating in summer. The menu is large with excellent pasta dishes and specials. One of my favorites was the rack of lamb a must try!

Food was superb. Beet salad, clams, salmon and strip steak all outstanding and prepared EXACTLY as ordered for my party of 2. Kevin behind the bar on top of his game. Restrooms need updating.

The food was OK, but not great. My husband and I started with drinks and an appetizer at the bar. Happy hour specials were great, even on a Saturday until 6pm. Service was great. We ordered Thai wings. They were ok. Maybe not the best choice for an Italian restaurant. Other appetizers coming out looked better. We moved to the... More

Dined with a friend and enjoyed the Angel Hair pasta with white clam sauce very much-fresh clams (cockels) and a tasty broth with fresh pasta. Prices are on the higher side but Tuesday is 1/2 price pasta night and Monday is 1/2 price pizza.

My husband and I miss this place after moving to SC last year. The first place to visit on our trip back to NJ was Pagano's it was outstanding as usual. This was our 7th time here. They have an extensive menu and many specials which is very difficult to consistently have each meal made to perfection but they do... More
