Trendy Italian Trattoria with great atmosphere in a contemporary shaped building with high ceilings (or as I call it, the sextagon of deliciousness). A wonderful selection of appetizers, great pasta dishes and main courses provide a wide variety for all tastes, at reasonable to moderate prices. As a foodie, anytime a place names a dish after itself, I must try it…by law. At Pinziminio, the house specialty is the Pinziminio sauce, which is their spin on a puttanesca sauce (if you don’t know what that is click here for a definition). I usually ask for it by the quart. This place also does my favorite Italian comfort food, Pasta Carbonara, better than anyone south of Little Italy (or east of South Philly). If you’ve never tried it, this would be a very good place to give it a go.
But loving a restaurant involves more than just loving the cooking. The people that run the place could often make or break it. The whole Pinziminio family, from the owners Jim and Karen to the staff, are one of the friendliest crews in Ocean County. This place is truly a labor of love for all who work there!
Reservations are a must, this place is popular in season and out!Pinziminio Trattoria
