Cerrato's Bradley Beach
First of all, I despise Mother's Day dinner's. Talk about amatuer night out at a restaurant! So I walked into Cerrato's already skeptical and expecting food to be less than the normal quality i have come to expect. The chowhound boards haven't been too kind to this place and I am a big fan of the osso bucco there so I decided to stray from the menu and give some of the pasta dishes a shot.
I have to tell you, this place really is a great restaurant!
The antipasto is amazing, the service is excellent, and the owner (I think his name is Lou) is a genuine nice guy and they know how to cook a plate of pasta.
Great work over there on a night of the year where restaurants generally flop.
