        Thanks. we walked by il giardino grille yesterday. will check it out. going to labrador tonight. looks good but kind of pricey as long as it is worth the price. Hate overpaying for average food.
        had a good donut at the donut place this morning. cannot remeber the name right now. saw a good bakery a little farther down the road will have to investigate ;)

        1. re: Spaetzle75

          the name of the donut shop is donuts plus, good fresh donuts. had a nice blueberry crumb cake at colonial bakery as well, very affordable

        1. re: foobuc

          $33.00 for Sea bass? $20.00 for Linguini and Clam Sauce? Wow. When did Lavallette dining become so expensive? I'd better stay on my own side of the Mathis Bridge. Lol


        2. Lenny's in Lavallette for the best pizza. Also very good pastas, etc. Been in business for 25+ years.

            I disagree. I'd say, if you're already on the island and looking for amazing pizza, drive south to Seaside Heights and get a tomato pie from Maruca's on the boardwalk at Porter Ave. (actually Seaside Park) BEST pizza EVER!

              Njchicaa I totally agree with you, ...Lenny's average at best....luv Maruca's on the boardwalk in SS......If I cant make it to Papas Pizza in Trenton that where we go.

              1. re: Tapas52

                Definitely prefer Maruca's to Lenny's, but it's certainly not the "best ever" - best in the OC, maybe . . . .

          2. If you're looking for a bakery, head a few miles north to Bay Head. Mueller's Bakery is NOT to be missed! My family has been enjoying their treats for more than 50 years. They're know best for their crumb buns, but you can't go wrong with any of the pastries. Two things to remember: get there EARLY (they open at 6:30 am), and still expect to stand in a long line! But so worth every minute!

              I LOVE Mueller's iced crumb buns (75% crumb and 25% cake) and their brownies. I'm not a big chocolate person but I could eat one of their brownies every single day of my life.
