Brought my significant other here to dine along with another couple to celebrate my significant other's birthday and we had an enjoyable time. The food was absolutely delicious. A meal enjoyed by all. The service was attentive.
Food was delicious. Staff is outstanding. Unfortunately, one very noisy group of people. Could use a bit of soundproofing, Either that or posting policies to be considerate of others.
Ate outside and it was very comfortable and inviting
All dishes were very good.
Our server was terrific…working a full house on her own
Would definitely recommend and we’ll be back
It was our third time eating here this season. Overall excellent experience. For our friends it was their first time and they said they will definitely be back. Food was well prepared and an excellent value.
Everything was delicious; nice ambiance. Great service.
Delicious and fresh food . They have a lovely outdoor patio which we only eat at because of Covid, and I hope they can have heaters when the weather gets colder. The wait staff is good, but our table was never completely set up, so we had to ask for napkins and forks several times. The prices for the most part are fair, but the specials are way too expensive. Paying $42.00 for the branzino special ( a half of the fish in a fillet) is outrageous even though it has crabmeat. It should be priced somewhere in the $30’s.
Overall, I would recommend eating here.
Food was very good. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and personable. Our only complaint was that we had to ask for our water glasses to be filled. A bit loud inside - looking forward to going back and sitting outside on their very attractive deck. Definitely recommend this restaurant.
Too much sauce on everything. Dressing/entree.
A charming restaurant with excellent fare. The service staff were very attentive despite being understaffed.
Wonderful experience. Great food great service and the wine was superb (it’s a BYOB.
I requested a window and that’s what we got! So, thank you for that. Service was efficient and nice. Food was outstanding. We have eaten here many times over the years although we moved out of state several years ago. We look forward to coming back soon.
My husband and I decided to have our anniversary dinner here because we just had a baby and wanted to be close to the house. We had a great experience here last summer, but not the past two times. We sat outside and we got seated on the deck. Not our server, but the guy who brought us waters was super unfriendly. There were tons of fruit flies and mosquitos so we decided to take our food to go. My spaghetti caprese had no mozzarella, it was essentially spaghetti with sauce, something I could have made in 15 minutes. My husband got the fettuccine and added broccoli and mushrooms which was minimal in the meal and got charged $6 per added vegetable. We wanted to give this place another chance but were disappointed once again.
The ambience is good. Service is excellent and the food is delicious.
Delicious food! Such a beautiful night to enjoy their outside tented area! Beautiful flowers and white linens made an outdoor dining experience lovely!
Amazing food! I think this is the best Italian food I have ever had. service was a tad slow, but that is to be expected with the pandemic. Our waitress was solid and multitasking left and right. She was the only one handling about 7-8 tables outside just to herself. She was fantastic and impressive. It was so worth the wait for the food. I highly recommend the chicken parm or the pollo Fantasia. Portions sizes are a tad big so it is worth the price!
Best fried calamari...very fresh and tender
We both had seafood dinners...both fresh and excellent!
Service was extremely slow and we had an early dinner with only a few other tables filled
We sat downstairs-Noise level was extremely loud once the room was filled in with people but we were almost done eating at that point!
We will be returning because of quality of food!!
Food was great and service excellent-as always! Thanks for another delicious dinner!
Lighting was way too bright and took away from the appeal of the dinner. Our waiter Remy was excellent, however…
Service and food were very good, loved the outside patio under the tent. Elise was our server and she was wonderful; can’t wait to return!
Amazing food. Everything that we ordered had a unique test and we enjoyed the ambiance as well.
This was our first time here. I wanted to sit in the backyard but a party of two is not allowed. I wish I knew this before. It was a special occasion. We did sit on the front porch. Our waitress, Ola, was excellent. We loved her friendly nature. She was professional and informative with the menu. We both had the specials. Lobster ravioli was one and the other a branzino over Cappellini in a white wine sauce was the other special. Excellent….. we we so full we could not indulge in the deserts. We will definitely return. I
The food is always fantastic. We love the staff who are always so kind and accommodating. Our favorite restaurant.
Bon appétit! We had an incredible dinner last night. My friend recommended the gnocchis and said they were like tiny pillows from heaven and she was on point. We also enjoyed the penne all vodka and the pollo buona vita. The restaurant was very busy for a Tuesday in the summer so the service was a bit slow but the atmosphere on the front porch made up for it.
The host/server was fabulous! Very friendly and personable. Food was above expectations!
Great restaurant. Had a wonderful meal, highly recommend.
Great service. BYOB. Indoor and outdoor dining both upstairs and down.
Love your food and love your outdoor space.
Your waitress servers need lessons on doing their job.
After being seated the staff ignored us. They stand around and talk with each other while we sat with our wine bottles needing to be open. Finally asked for service.
The last time we ate with you we had a similar experience.
They have no ability on how to be good waitresses.
Not hospitable at all.
been to BV several times and their food is consistently good
Overpriced. Salmon seemed like it was frozen and not fresh. They seated us in the rain while the rest of the covered outdoor area remained empty… when we asked, they said they had reservations for those tables… yet when we finished dinner all of the tables remained empty. Overall, disappointed after hearing positive reviews from others
First time here for dinner and it was great! Would like to dine outside next time. Love that it’s byob
Second visit to this restaurant, the food was very good. We ate outside, very pleasant experience. Service still is just mediocre, it certainly isn’t the waitstaff’s fault, she was overwhelmed with her workload. We made very few requests and accepted the staffing shortages that exist everywhere. We will return again.
The menu was very creative especially the specials. Unlike many other restaurants they were very willing to make changes in the way the dishes were prepared. We sat outside, the ambiance was not great but the safety dictated it for us. I hope to return when we feel safe to eat inside.
Very good Italian food!! We had fried calamari and two pasta dishes. Everything was excellent. Sat on the top porch with a nice breeze. BYOB!
Remi was the best per usual! It was very loud towards the end of dinner but that’s our only complaint!
From the moment you smell the garlic in the parking lot, you know this is going to be an authentic experience. Great ambiance, friendly staff, delicious food!
Staff was so nice, food was fantastic!!!
Been going there for years really loved it took the family there all the time took friends told people about how wonderful everything’s been but this was a very bad experience we just had and we voiced our opinion on the service not good service. The food there is always delicious although this time it did not come out hot. Also we mentioned the appetizer never came. But we were still charged for it. The reason the service was not good is because the food was dropped off And no one came back. Not a good experience.
Food was delicious. Lobster ravioli fantastic. Poor waitress had the whole upstairs. She was very apologetic and could have used sone help. We’ve been here 5 or 6!tunes. Always good. It is a bit loud.
2nd floor needs acoustical treatment on walls and ceiling.

Decided to try this little place on a busy Sunday in Somers Point. Delightful. Food was excellent, service was great as well. We will definitely go back and will recommend it to our friends.
