Loved it. Dined on the patio. Nice people and delicious food. The house antipasto salad with grilled vegetables, Rigatoni and pistachio tartufo were authentically prepared and reasonably priced. Definitely a keeper!

We had a delicious casual dinner at Johnny Piancone’s on our recent trip from DE to Long Branch. We started with a large garden salad, which we shared as it was huge. The bread was warm and tasty, served with butter or olive oil, on...the table, your choice. I had a delicious lemon drop martini with a sugared rim. I highly recommend the lobster ravioli served in an amazing blush sauce and topped with shrimp and the most tender scallops ever. It was decadent! Husband had chicken Parmesan with angel hair pasta, and he said it may have been the best he’s ever tasted. Server Justin was friendly, informative and on point. We are so glad we went! We will definitely return if we are in the area again.More

What a fantastic meal ! When you walk in the aromas let you know your in right place. Our server Nick was excellent. The veal parm was delicious as were the meatballs. The wife enjoyed the scallops and my daughter had a filet that was...huge and prepared perfectly. Can't wait to return.More

First visit and it won’t be the last! Small cozy bar with just a dozen bar seats and three high tops. We were fortunate to get two seats together as a couple was paying their check when we arrived. Spoke with the owner when leaving...who said sometimes the upper floor bar is open for HH. Over 25 food choices under $8 on HH menu plus about ten specials at higher price points. Three choices were plenty for two to share. All were absolutely delicious!! Friendly bartender Ro expertly managed the busy scene. Highly recommended!More
