Our hosts for the week have been raving about Nunzio's, and told us they served the best pizza in America. The pizza, though not the best I've ever tasted, was fantastic nonetheless, and the value for money was fantastic. The 'medium' pizza is pretty big! The waitresses were delightful, and we were made to feel extremely welcome. Would love to... More

Well we all have our favorites in Long Branch and I can tell you that Nuzzio's has stood the test of time!! Seems to get better every time I go there, which is a frequent event. We don't need menus, you gotta try the Chopped Salad followed by large pie with Sausage and Peppers!! My wife likes a plain pie... More

First time here for post beach family dinner - standard small salad which, thankfully, was served at room temperature. Not sure why the dressing was served in a small disposable plastic container. Husband devoured his chicken francaise. My shrimp primavera was underseasoned, overcooked and swimming in oil. Definitely not a $19 plate. Other diners were raving about the pizza. This... More

I have been to Nunzio's many times since I found this great restaurant a few years ago. No trip to the Jersey Shore feels complete without stopping in for dinner. I love sitting in the restaurant and eating the food and watching customers who have been coming here probably since this place opened. I dream of the baked ziti and... More

Fried Calamari to die for. Cooked perfectly and so tasty! Pizza is thin crust and amazing. We've been going here forever and it never disappoints! Snookie the owner/waitress is the best anticipating your every need! Must try Nunzio's but call for days open and time of business..

I have frequented Nunzio's since the 1950's, enjoying their food and ambiance whenever I am in the area. Remarkably, the restaurant has remained the same, when it could have easily expanded and added locations. But this family business chose to remain just that - serving the generations of local families in Long Branch and the surrounding communities. I highly recommend... More

I had not been in for dinner in a while so I decided to see if they were as good as last time. I decided to try the CHICKEN MURPHY this time and was pleasantly surprised. The portion was generous and made with mushrooms and onions, green peppers ,cherry peppers and real potato chunks not French fries like some places... More

First time here, I was excited to try them since the reviews here appear to be so positive. Maybe its me and I'm spoiled coming from north jersey. Ordered the pizza and its reminiscent of Kinchleys in Mahwah. Nice thin crust, flavorful sauce. The penne with vodka sauce consisted of over over cooked pasta (not al dente) and vodka sauce... More
