Shianos Italian Restaurant Excellent in Toms River NJ

This was our third time having dinner at Shianos Restaurant & Pizzeria & it never disappoints.
They make everything fresh and it shows in their food, fresh, delicious & friendly service, casual.
They haven't been at this location that long but they are surly making their mark in the neighborhood..
Their homemade breads, Focaccia sandwiches & garlic knots are to die for. This evening we ordered the Linguini w/ White Clam sauce & honestly this was the BEST I have had in such a long time to the point where I was almost licking the plate & soaking up the last drops of juice with the bread. My wife ordered the Fettuccine Paglia E Fino (Bacon, Peas, Mushrooms, in a Blush Cream Sauce) yummy ! Service is very friendly and very attentive...complimentary salad with a killer house vinaigrette & some garlic knots also, nice touch. All in all this little Italian Gem run but a family from Naples Italy really knows what they are doing.... Located just down the road from Community Hospital they do a thriving business & justly so.....if your in the area & want a super Italian meal at a reasonable price give Shianos a try ! And its BYOB also..

  1. Where exactly is this place located? Past the hospital toward Miracle Bar?

    Our usual Italian is Il Giardinello if we want to spend a lot or Capone's if we want to spend less. Now that Capone's is BYOB, we definitely want to try new places.

      It is actually in the back of the Miracle Pub & Grill parking lot on the Lakehurst rd side.
      We like it better then Capone's. it's good food at great prices.

        You don't like BYOBs? Any idea why Capone's dropped liquor?

          All I heard was that they sold the liquor license. Capone's and Jimmy C's are both BYOB now.
