Reasonably priced but great ambience for my wife and I with delicious food, great service. BYOB or buy retail to drink wine at your table since we're in Cape May. Just across the street from Congress Hall and right on the downtown walkways. Busy and...More

My wife and I wanted to enjoy a good Italian dinner in Cape May, and the Cusina Rosa fit the bill nicely. Everything was served very hot, fresh out of the oven. This a BYOB place (too bad I didn't know!) and most of the...More

Cozy Italian restaurant on the Washington St Mall. You can get a bottle of wine or soda, but must bring your own beer. Chicken, broccoli Alfredo was too salty for my tastes. Husband had nice meal of spaghetti and meatballs. Delicious warm bread, butter and...More
