Lenny's is not your average pizza place. They serve great pizza, but they also serve amazing dishes with shrimp, chicken and beef that are fabulous! The portions are large and the prices are reasonable. The staff is friendly and accommodating and you can eat outside during the nice weather. For Italian food in Lavallette, Lenny's is the place-you'll love it!

Lenny's is always on our list of places to eat. Stop there every time we're down the Shore at least once. Good service, great food.

All dishes were good except the kitchen staff doesn't seem to understand what 'plain boiled shrimp' is. They tried twice but didn't get it right.

Routinely order pizzas to go from this place. Many choices to choose from but honestly a plain or pepperoni is all you need to satisfy the taste buds. Took a season to find our go to pizza joint but happy we came across this one and only 5min drive to boot.

Went on a dinner break and was thoroughly impressed with the food. I ordered the gnocci while my girlfriend ordered a personal pie. The pasta was in a rich sauce, very tasty and huge portion. Likewise with the pizza. Was upset there were no hoagies/sandwiches though. Also the service was very slow and disinterested, not convenient for someone on a... More

I got a pizza to go two nights prior but needed more, so dined in tonight. Garlic bread with cheese, calamari, gnocchi, and tortellini Alfredo were all equally good! Service was great, and the bus boys work their tails off. Something was up at the hostess stand, however, as tables were turned over and remained open a while before they... More

Ordered take out from this restaurant twice during a weeklong family vacation to the beach. First night was a pizza order and the food was great. Next time was a pasta order. Portions were very generous and 4 pasta dinners were shared easily by 6 people. Favorite dishes were the baked ziti and the garlic and oil pasta. Delicious food.... More
