Hello 'hounds!

I'm looking for a great Italian BYO in the area for a party. What're your favorite BYOs?

  1. To clarify, I'm looking for a place on the fancier side. Thanks!

    1. I think this is all the nicer BYOs in the area...is anyone familiar with any of these places?

        Haven't been to any of the places mentioned. I know this is not what you're asking for, but for *fancy* Italian, I'd go to Piccola Italia in Ocean, but it fails to meet your BYOB criteria.

        2. I was here recently and was so happy they make their own pasta!! BYOB, too!! We were all very happy with our meals, and I for one, am THE most critical on any restaurant!! It is in Long Branch....West End

            Anjelica's in Sea Bright is a nicer BYOB Italian. I know they do many parties. I immediately thought Piccola Italia, too, even though they serve drinks.

          2. Bay Avenue Trattoria in Highlands

              Def second BAT in the Highlands - food cant be beat. But the atmosphere is far from "fancy" and I don't think they would accommodate a party. I'd try Citrico's in Bradley Beach nice intimate atmosphere above average Italian food and theyare VERY accommodating and would probably close down for a party. or Angelicas in Sea Bright Is also very good but not sure about a party there. Tulipano's in Belmar is another option. They def do private parties but their service is very hit or miss.

              1. re: stack_c

                I would echo jsfein's and MicheleM131's recommendation of Piccola Italia if you can get by the fact that it's not BYOB.

            2. I would vote for Bella Sogno in Bradley Beach. Lovely food and BYOB.
