need a good Italian restaurant for a pre-wedding dinner party (belmar area)

My son is getting married on JUne 15 and I am looking for a nice place to have a family dinner the night before. Maybe about 30 people or so. A private room would be great and we LOVE really good food. We can bring our own wine or buy from the restaurant, it doesnt' matter. Thanks for any recommendations

    First off, Congratulations. I would recommend Giamano's Ristorante in nearby Bradley Beach. They have a sizable 2nd floor for parties such as yours and the food is quite good.

      Try Stella Marina in Asbury Park.

        Good rec. That upstairs, private room is one I would certainly love to have a party in.

        Another thought to the OP would be UVA in Bradley Beach. If I recall correctly, they have a nice upstairs (like Giamano's, at which I have only dined once long ago and therefore offer no comparison) for private parties. I should note that both UVA and Stella have full liquor licenses.

        Haven't been in about a year or so, but last meals at Nicchio in Belmar were very good. Check for more recent reviews....
