Tuzzio's has been around for years. I hadn't been there in a while but that's going to change! Their garlic bread is the best! Red sauce is served with it for dipping. And their pizza is so good! We had half peppers and onions and half sausage and mushrooms. All of us were very happy!! The service was excellent!

This is your typical solid neighborhood restaurant. A good red sauce Italian restaurant. A warm place where the neighbors, friends and family go for a nice night out to celebrate whatever special occasion is occurring. The food has all the pasta, meat and fish meals that you would expect. Well prepared with quality ingredients. Visit this place, you will enjoy... More

One if the best in Long Branch. Fantastic food, reasonable prices,excellent service. Just great place. Recommend to make a reservation. Instead of going in touristic restaurants on broad walk, drive 1 mile here.

This is a traditional Italian place with plenty of delicious red sauce on magnificent pasta dishes. Again, they make the Lasagna like in Rome, and their makes great drinks. Did I mention they have excellent Chianti ? On a Friday or Saturday night, call for reservations. The staff is friendly and attentive. You will leave happy and full ! Mangia... More

This is the second time we've traveled down to Long Branch for the NUWAY Summer Nationals and we ate at Tuzzio's both times. The portions are extremely plentiful and every plate was really good. The appetizers were fresh, the salad was crisp, and the meals were excellent. This is the type of place you can come to every time your... More

This is an authentic throwback Italian neighborhood establishment! The service is excellent and the staff is friendly and fun! Love the country style parmigiana, made with moist pounded out thighs with homemade pappardelle pasta. The Bolognese with pappardelle is outstanding too.,but they put too much sauce so I ask to put less sauce.. The portions are very generous! And the... More

stepping across the threshold is like walking into an old friend's house. whether at the bar or a table, it is genuine Italian. no fakery. that goes for the food, too. large portions of southern Italian food, not bad house wine. try veal francese or any other veal, huge linguine w/ white clam sauce, etc., etc..
