    Excellent Service along with very Superb Food.

      I agree, La Spiaggia is definitely my favorite fine dining experience down in LBI.

      I took some pictures last week when I was there. I hope you can view them w/ this link.

      I will add more as I can!

    2. thx, have been wanting to go there for some time and always seem to end up at raimondos. we actually ended up going to plantation - always expensive, but actually really enjoyed it. will have to get to la spiaggia!

        1. We used to hit M&M Steam Bar every visit on the island, but it has been most disappointing so far this year. The seafood quality is just not what it was in years past. -mJ

            thx, ever been to the 18th street cafe in barnegat light?

            1. re: kenlagana

              we ended up going to 18th street cafe. decor is definitely homey and a bit dated - you wont be wowed. THAT SAID, food was awesome - the fish was some of the freshest i've had(compliments of viking village - right down the road) and they did non fish dishes very well also. bottom line there is somethign for everyone here - even kids and highly reccomend it. it also happens to be a byo!

              I'm sorry to hear that - I have some great memories of the M&M. First place I ever had clams on the half shell. And they were dee-licious.

            3. my favorite dinner restaurant on lbi is the beach house in beach haven terrace. Phenomenal seafood combos and the best crab cakes i've ever had!! There also open for breakfast on the weekends, but i've never been. The dinner there though is outstanding
